She’s driving the show

A couple were talking about another married couple where the husband does pretty much whatever his wife wants even when he doesn’t want to, prompting the malaphor: “She’s driving the show.” This is a congruent conflation of “running the show” and “in the driver’s seat”, both meaning to have authority or control of something. A big thanks to Barry Eigen for sending this one in!
