  5. Borrowed from DEE DEE
    What I wanted to say...Now I found the words.....

    Pièce de résistance (French pronunciation: [pj?s d? ?ezist??s]) is a French term (circa 1839), translated into English literally as "piece of (or for) resistance," referring to the best part or feature of something (as in a meal), a showpiece, or highlight. It can be thought of as the portion of a creation which defies (i.e. "resists") orthodox or common conventions and practices, thereby making the whole of the creation unique and special. The phrase gives the sense that the referred-to element is the most outstanding, notable, or defining of the collection.
