Marry, this is the short and the long of it;
you have brought her into such a canaries as 'tis wonderful.
The best courtier of them all, when the court
lay at Windsor, could never have brought her to such a canary.

    -- Merry Wives of Windsor, Act II, Scene 2

The phrase, this is the short and the long of it, as used in Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor simply means stating the plain truth without embellishments. The nugget of the story in black and white, minimalist in nature and right to the core of it as seen in my piece titled Long View.
