English words and phrases that have no Japanese equivalent

English words and phrases (not idioms) that have no Japanese equivalent.

My fellow English teachers in Japan, a colleague of mine is writing a paper on phrases in English that have no equivalent in Japanese. She will discuss them in terms of register and other aspects. Are there any phrases that come to your minds that fit this criterion? If you choose to help me out, thanks very much for your time.
