    What do these titles mean?

    Hi, I have a question.

    How do you understand these phrases? They are the names of a song or a movie ...
    - Come what May
    - Two for the money.

    Thank you.

    Come what May is the title of a song popularized by Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman in 2001, from the movie Moulin Rouge!

    Two for the Money is the title of a movie. You can read about it here: Two for the Money (2005)

    Yeah, I understand the "Two for the money"
    But I still don't understand "Come what May"
    Can you help me?

    "Come what may" means "Whatever happens".

    "I will finish this book come what may" means that no matter what happens, I am determined to finish this book.

    Thanks.

    But the 'May' is in uppercase, so it must be different from 'may/might'.
    Is that right?

    As a title, it could be written "Come What May" OR "Come what may" - it is merely a transcription error.
