'Through and through' có nghĩa là hoàn toàn, chính cống, có đầy đủ đặc điểm của một cái gì.

Ví dụ
You can tell my husband and I are New Yorkers through and through (chính cống). We go to clubs when most Americans go to bed. We live in a building with more people than some U.S. towns. We take fashion seriously. And we take a taxi to get to our health club in order to exercise (tập thể dục). We represent the Manhattan lifestyle (lối sống) in every way.

Since my son became very ill, I’ve been incredibly (cực kì) busy (bận rộn). But my best friend has done so much to help. She cleans my house, takes my daughter to school and does my grocery shopping. She’s been a true friend; a friend through and through.
