out of the question

1. Their mom said watching another movie was out of the question. It was time for bed.
2. He wanted to get a motorcycle, but his wife said it was out of the question.
3. Her parents want her to marry the guy, but she's told them it's absolutely out of the question.
4. Going on vacation right now is out of the question for him. He has so much work to do.
5. I know you want to buy a house, but it's just out of the question right now. We simply can't afford it.

When something is out of the question, you're saying a firm "no" to it, and you don't even want to consider or think about it.
