I started to learn English. Watching series like popular 'The X-Files' etc is very useful. In the 6th episode of the 10th season I found the expression 'A rat's chance'. What does it mean?

    It's a shortened form of "not a rat's chance in hell" and basically means that there's no chance of something happening. – John Clifford Mar 8 '16 at 11:42

It means "No chance !" or so little - that only a rat would try - it's 0 chance at all.
