A latin phrase that translates into "what for what". It essentially means that if you do something for me, I'll do something for you as a fair exchange.

1. A Latin expression that means an equal exchange. Similar to give and take.

2. An expression which, if used by an insane cannibal psychiatrist you happen to be talking to, is an excellent sign that you're in a LOT of trouble.
1. I gave her 20 bucks, she gave me... well, quid pro quo, y'know?
