Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the first sentence as well to explain to me the meaning of the expression in bold in the second sentence?
1.I was getting to that. But since you seem to be so impatient,I’ll cut to the chase.
I’ll cut to the chase = I get to the point.
2.After splashing some water on his face, Greg opened the medicine cabinet. How he hated the security cap on days like this. He struggled to open the plastic container of Advil, poured some unknown quantity into his mouth, and swallowed.
Thank you for your efforts.

2. security cap : the child-proof cap on medicines and bottles of poisonous liquids. For example, rather than simply unscrew, the fingers have to squeeze in at two points on the cap, then twist off.
