Bide one's time 等待机会
Terry：My girlfriend and I had a quarrel about where to go on summer holiday.
特里：我女朋友和我为了暑假去哪吵了一架。Danny：I'm sorry to hear that. Did you try to text her?
Terry：Yeah. I've tried everything, but she didn't respond at all.
Danny：So what are you going to do?
Terry：I think I'll just bide my time until she is willing to talk.
The house can bide the typhoon.
