'Go home in a box' = trở về trong chiếc quan tài -> nghĩa là chết ở nơi xa xôi, và được đưa quan tài về quê (to be shipped home dead); như người nói câu "Tau khỏe mà có chi mô" đó các bạn.

Ví dụ
I see so many of the people that I care for in prison have died, they go home in a box and it scares me.

"Simply give us room. We all have a family," said Allemen, "I am a mother of three boys and I want to go home to my kids alive, I don't want to go home in a box like that. They don't deserve that."

If you are a criminal… heading out on a day’s robbery and thievery, that person has to get it into their head that maybe one day they’ll go home in a box. And if that happens, I wouldn’t be sorry.

He said he warned them that to be safe the route would need to be cleared first, adding: "That was when I said 'if you want Ginger to go home in a box we'll just crack on, because that is what will happen if we don't go through the correct procedures first."
