Step up to the plate

If you 'step up to the plate,' it means that you finally do something that needs doing, possibly something you've been avoiding, or you take responsibility for something you've done. It's a reference to baseball, where a player steps up to home plate to bat.

-I really need to tell my friend that I took her money.
-Time to step up to the plate!
