NPR Sunday Puzzle (Dec 10): T for Two (or Five)...

NPR Sunday Puzzle (Dec 10): T for Two (or five)...:
Q: There's a familiar five-word saying in which one of the words ends in the letter T and the other four words all start with T. What is the saying?
I couldn't have solved this week's puzzle without the help of my wife. We kept trying answers ("The best things take time", "Taking it to the top", etc.) and we finally stumbled upon what we believe to be the intended answer.
Edit: You caught the hint about not being able to do this without my wife, right? What's a saying that might echo that sentiment? And notice how our wrong answers kept including 'take' in them; that was another clue.

For NPR puzzle posts, don't post the answer or any hints that could lead to the answer before the deadline (usually Thursday at 3pm ET). If you know the answer, submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't assist with solving. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the deadline. Thank you.
