Give me the works

Posted by Neelanchal express on January 13, 2004

Hi all,
I know the expression "to give sb the works" means either to give somebody lavish treatment, or to beat somebody up. However, can the sentence "Give me the works" mean "Brief me on the details," or something like that? Thanks a lot.
