Idiom #2 : Between the devil and the deep blue sea
Equavalent expression - Between a rock and a hard place
Meaning - "Between the devil and the deep blue sea" is an idiom meaning a dilemma—i.e., to choose between two undesirable situations (equivalent to "between a rock and a hard place") (source: Wikipedia)
For most people a visit to the dentist is the result of a choice between the devil and the deep blue sea - if you go you suffer, and if you don't go you suffer.
And here's more, the expression between the devil and the deep blue sea was mentioned in the Carpenter's song 'I'm Caught Between Goodbye and I Love You'. See the video below at 01:39.
