it is only the last inch that counted
"I explained that no one should ever fear crashing because it is only the last inch that counted."

The last inch in TTOTC: "For example, do you know how long a piece of iron is needed to make a horseshoe? You measure the horse's hoof, front to back, multiply by two and add an inch. Most people don't know that, but I do because my friend Frank Turley told me. And he told me because he's a blacksmith and I paid him twenty bucks to make me one."

The last double quote (") as inch in TFTW: 'Finally, I told him that at $I7 a square inch one of his larger paintings, say 21" x 43", (with Masonite you can cut any size you
want) would bring about $15,000, plus or minus a little depending on quality and subject.'
