all one(redirected from all the one)
all (the) one
1. The same as other options. Voting for a democrat or a republican for president is all one in my opinion; they're both going to lead the country the same way. This stupid, poofy prom dress and that stupid, poofy prom dress are all one. I want something different from the other girls at school! To me, these superhero movies are all one. Can you tell I'm not a fan?
2. Making no difference or of no consequence to someone. To be honest, I don't care if we buy the blue or the red sofa; it's all the one to me. I don't really care what we watch tonight, it's all one to me. I'd like to go home, if it's all the one to you. I'm just so tired all of a sudden.
be all (the) one (to someone)
To make no difference (to someone) one way or another; to be unimportant (to someone) what happens. I'd actually prefer to continue working on a freelance basis, if it's all one to you. It's only a game, after all, so it's all the one whether we win or lose.
