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.

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.
