English term or phrase: collar and chain
Kan iemand me helpen met het stukje "collar and chain"? Ik heb het voorlopig vertaald als stijve hark. Kan dat volgens jullie? Dit is de context:

- Give the car to me. Man, It'd be bye-bye, Holden. Hey, me, I'd sell it. Haven me a month in Acapulco.
- Acapulco, you and Larry, huh?
- I said me a month in Acapulco, not that goddamn collar and chain.
