Meaning: got it done well. Use examples.
Rewrite 1: spikedtv1a it
Rewrite 2: hammered it home
Rewrite 3: hit it square on the mark
Rewrite 4: dotted the bull’s eye
Comment: Similar to “aced it.” Rewrite 1 can relate to sports (e.g., volleyball), so watch where you use it. Rewrite 4 may be a little more obscure, but I think it gets across the idea of spiking or nailing the target dead center.
