  • Some additional context might help in answering this question. Literally, it sounds like you're looking for 'quid pro quo' (or more colloquially 'tit for tat'), but from the context you do provide, it seems you might be looking for something more like 'recompense'. Could you use a more complete sentence that demonstrates the potential usage? – Ben Hocking Sep 17 '16 at 12:36
  • thanks tit for tat will do. i tried to make it clear as you said – habibhassani Sep 17 '16 at 12:43

"Tit for Tat" is good, or "this is [your] payback!"


Revenge is a dish best savoured cold (or savored in US).
