It costs an arm and a leg  大放血 - brandonzin - Brandon Zin Blog
'Arm' and 'leg' are used as examples of items that no one would consider selling even at an enormous price. It costs an arm and a leg is used to describe the price of something that is very expensive compared to what you expected. '臂'和'腿'被用来作为例子,无论出价多少相信没有人会考虑出售其'臂'和'腿',It costs an arm and a leg 通常用于描述某物品的价值远远超出你的预期。 

Examples 例子

I went to the dentist today to check my teeth and I need to do some dental work, but it costs an arm and a leg. 我今天去看牙医,我的牙齿需要整治一下,但那简直是天价。 

Originally we planned to have our vacation in Europe, but a two-week vacation in Europe costs an arm and a leg, so we are going to have our vacation in Thailand. 原本我们打算到欧洲度假,但是泡在欧洲半个月花销太恐怖了,我们只能改道泰国。
