How to use The-one in a sentence
I'm not all that secretive, but you were the one who kept telling me that if he wanted you to know, he'd tell you.
He was head of the house - the one who made final decisions.
Alex had been the one who helped her see them as true family, and yet he was having issues accepting his own father.
All the same, he was the one who broke the embrace.
Other than the one time he had lost his temper with her, she had never known him to be anything but gentle.Advertisement
I'm the one who should be apologizing - for dragging you into this.
Actually, everything belongs to both of us, but I was the one who had the lifelong dream of a horse ranch.
She was the one who had insisted on waiting until they were married.
He was making noises like his father was the one he didn't trust, but it wasn't that simple.
I wasn't the one who wanted to come here in the first place.Advertisement
She had been the one who pushed him back into it.
He had the background and the education, but he obviously didn't have the inclination to adjust to the one being forced on him.
After all, her husband was the one who had custody of the boy.
In the weeks of natural stimulation, she had been the one who was embarrassed.
He wasn't the one who gave me a bad name.Advertisement
That's the one the old hospital is on, isn't it?
Well... Yancey, maybe you're the one I should be careful about.
Since she had given no information to Howard, Connie had to be the one who was talking.
You're the one who thinks I'm afraid.
Because you're the one who is concerned about my safety.Advertisement
To her surprise, he was the one who broke away.
I wasn't the one running away.
After all, he was the one who insisted that his mother was her boss.
She didn't want the family picture, as that was the one they used in the newspaper.
She had been the one who had betrayed, and the person she had betrayed was Yancey.Advertisement
Howard wasn't the one involved with drugs.
Connie caught her breath So you were the one who told him how to get to the house.
I trusted you with that information and you gave it to the one person she didn't want to know.
She was the one who told me that he was a child prodigy.
No. But if I were trying to defend my honor, you'd be the one I would choose to take up there.Advertisement
Or was Brandon the one with the problem?
Roxanne had a set her cap for him and Adrienne had no intention of being the one to spoil her friends' plans.
I let our stupid house rules stand between us for a long time, but I was the one who finally broke them.
In fact, he was the one who was acting selfish!
Without a word, he backed the car until they were close to the one that had pulled out in front of them.Advertisement
I'm the one who owes you an apology, not the other way around.
I think you're the one who is placing the blame on yourself.
Mr. Marsh is the one who is responsible.
No, I was the one saying that.
You're the one who pushed this relationship.Advertisement
You're the one who...
He was the one who had been deceptive.
Even Rachel and Julia insisted that she was the one with the problem.
You're the one who threw the ring at me.
There was already a sizable gap between her wagon and the one in front of her.Advertisement
You were the one in the photo - the wandering nephew.
She was the one who had become serious - and with little encouragement on his part.
He was the one for her – but was she the one for him?
And yet, now the twins could return to their beloved ranch – the one she had finished paying off.
Cassie, your father should be the one to tell you this, but since you're not likely to give him the chance, I'll tell you.Advertisement
You know that man I was telling you about - the one who comes in at exactly eight every Friday night?
The floor creaked as she chose the one on the right.
You were the one who thought about it long enough to calculate it out.
He was the one that kept me honest.
It all happened so fast that she didn't have time to think, only to cling to the one solid thing she could find - Cade.
I assume you're the one responsible for the new look.
She gazed up at him, completely disarmed by his smile, and yet somehow proud that she had been the one to put it there.
You're the one who told me I shouldn't come out here in the first place.
Until now she would have sworn that he was the one who never expressed his feelings.
That's when it first crossed my mind that you might be the one.
I don't mean the four attempts on the one case.
Mr. Singer told you I was the one they interviewed for that talk show?
I'm the one most up in the pulpit on security.
I'm sure it's your Delaware-Alabama guy, the one who murdered the fake psychic Youngblood in California.
He's the one the newspaper is always talking about... the psychic.
She can be the one to talk Howie to sleep too.
That lady who's in the news, the one from Idaho who claims she's the tipster, she wrote an entry.
Now I was the one to anxiously await contact.
Don't make me be the one to call it quits.
If it is not she I suspect she possesses knowledge of the one I seek, the one who is my target.
This Bryce guy was probably the one who got a hold of the contest letter from Julie and broke into her apartment.
But Bryce wasn't the one who killed Brenda Washington!
The fiend who did that is still out there; the one who killed those children and police officer and God knows who else!
She is the one from Surry and her name is listed as Elizabeth in the phone book but they call her Betty, or Becky or some foolish diminutive.
She's not as beautiful as the one who bore the infant and until, and until today lived in this house.
Could you just talk to the guy who got out of jail; the one everyone thought killed my sister?
Two are in California with the ill mother of the one named Howard.
He wants me to get you to talk to that sex offender who's free; the one they thought killed Annie.
The mother, Rosie, she was the one that set the cops on me.
There is on one to connect me to New Hampshire though this little group who thought they were so clever hiding in that silly business in Keene might suspect that the one they hunted is now hunting them!
It was the one her friend had called Betsy and when she saw the child on the floor, stifled a scream.
But I must be certain as it may well be the one I slayed as she squatted ignominiously on the toilet.
Why shouldn't the one who controls it be me?
She retrieved the clothing, judging that Sofi had been the one to pick the original clothes out.
She gasped, recognizing it as the one he wore often, the heirloom passed down through his ancestors.
His dream, the one about the Original Vamp, hadn't returned.
The slow smile, the one that made her shiver, spread across his face.
She couldn't help thinking her life had been wasted and hoped she still had a chance to make it up to the one person who mattered.
You made the one who can stop you fall in love with you instead, her father said.
Who better to weed out traitors than the one who could see them for what they were?
In truth, it was the one place in the house where she felt safe and comfortable when she wasn't with Damian.
Since he was the one she wanted to learn to outsmart, in case things broke bad, she doubted he'd teach her anything.
If Gabriel had killed her while trying to save her, he'd kill the soul in her head, too, the one that damned Deidre to Hell.
He offered a small smile, not nearly as large as the one he'd given her the day he gave her the advice that ended up condemning her.
She hurried to the one waiting for her and paused.
His game isn't the one you think he's playing.
How many days, months, years had she prayed for a miracle like the one in her hand?
You'll be the one person in the universe who finds an ounce of good in that creature, Darkyn.
She watched the battle with the Dark One – the one Darkyn lost – and saw him banished to the bowels of Hell.
She almost told him that – of the two of them – she was the one with nothing to fear from Darkyn.
Of all the emotions running through her mind, the one that hurt the most was knowing that everyone outside Hell had already written her off as a goner.
Even the one where you planned to lie to me about Wynn healing Selyn.
Finally she said, My father was the one who did it, but it was a joint decision.
He's the one who made this an official matter for the sheriff's office.
Do you think he was the one who switched our markings in the mine?
Fred, with the help of his cadre of lady friends, was the one person who had the best shot of producing further information on the family and its history.
Dean thought about the pictures, especially the one of Dickinson Faust standing next to his Jeep, with the woman's sweater hanging over the seat.
The next eruption, and the one after it, gave insufficient light to help, but then a multiple display hung in the sky like a full moon, giving time for his eyes to search left and right.
He was the one who switched the bones, killing two stones with one bird—" "I think you've got that a bit mixed up," Dean offered, but Fred was on a roll.
Dean asked, the one question that had bothered him from the start.
He was the one who could have used it.
They've got the car—it's the one she stole.
Grandfather Ed was the one who made contact with Paul.
Then she'll be the one running unopposed.
I'm the one who's running.
He was leaving conflicted after seeing the marking on her back, the one that identified her as Darkyn's mate.
She followed her nose until she found the one she wanted.
The woman Gabriel touched today wasn't the one he touched last night.
It had to be the private deal, the one Gabriel found no trace of that Darkyn himself had mentioned to him.
Except suddenly, he realized this was the one time he needed there to be an exception.
It was his secret power, the one few others knew about.
That's the one the demons seem to be after.
Deidre felt the pain again, the one without a physical source but which she felt as if a knife was piercing her soul.
Fortunately, I'm not the one with my soul on the line.
He'd been the one to deliver his friend to Hell many years ago.
This very building was the one Gabriel dived off of in an attempt to keep the terrified human from trying to kill herself.
At least you freed the one that matters.
Deidre knew that look, the one that said that Harmony was staring down an eternity of demon mercy.
Since Carmen had been the one to initiate that adoption, it was safe to assume she was over her adoption phobia.
He was the one who needed to take care of her.
He was dressed in a suit identical to the one Alex wore.
I told her I was the one who insisted on adoption.
So can I, and I'm the one who wants them.
I'm not the one with a husband hiding a father from me.
Maybe this new Alex was the one she would spend the rest of her life with.
It was frustrating to work with someone who didn't try, but if it had not been for him trying to rescue her, she might be the one on that bed – or in the morgue.
He was always the one with the pretty words.
Maybe she was the one with the communication problem.
But why would he do that when he was the one who came up with the communication idea?
Isn't it possible that you were also dreaming, and you were the one who spoke?
She was the one who was awake.
He was the one who wanted her to communicate this way.
You're the one who was spouting all the virtues of marriage.
You've been the one constant in my life since this mess started.
Leave out the one you got me for my birthday.
As he watched, the words reached the page on the right, the one reserved for the Future.
Until he saw the one of her kissing someone.
A status check on their relationship, the one he hadn't told her he couldn't have, because he was trapped into mating with a formerly sadistic psychopath-turned-human he was trying hard not to kill.
The man she'd seen in daylight and the one who'd kissed her so passionately in moonlight became two separate people.
She heard a familiar ring tone – the one he assigned her – and looked up hopefully.
She was the one who was supposed to die, not him!
Maybe this was the push she needed to take that final step, the one that'd take her out of this world completely.
Of all the reasons he resented her, this was the one that stung him the most.
He had a feeling the most difficult was the one hiding in the Sanctuary.
She couldn't tell them apart yet and looked around to determine if this courtyard was the one near the medieval cafeteria or not.
If Logan's body was the one she found on the beach, who had been in her apartment?
I'm not the one you have to worry about.
Toby stood beside a plainly pregnant young woman with blue eyes and a tattoo across her neck that resembled the one on Deidre's back in color and otherworldly script.
A familiar sense returned, the one that made Deidre think Wynn wasn't a normal human.
You'll find it hard to kill yourself when I'm the one who determines who lives and dies.
She couldn't fathom the enormity of a billion souls like the one she'd touched.
Or going back to the one with the dead body in the tub.
Gabe knew without touching his mind that Tamer wasn't the one who had betrayed him.
This Deidre and the one he used to know were two different people.
He gave her the look, the one she knew was meant to remind her of his rules, before he dumped the bottle into the sink.
Deidre, I'm the one who will kill you.
Though of the two of us, I'm the one who can't read minds, so it makes sense I'm clueless.
Do you want me to take the one percent chance?
You are throwing me away like garbage when I'm the one he cares about!
Of all the brothers, he'd always been the one to begrudge Andre's role as their leader.
Except for the one who'd gasped, Molly, the half-Asian, half-Italian with beautiful coffee eyes and olive skin.
Her face felt hot as she recalled the one night they.d spent together.
She was struck by his words, feeling as if the one person she relied upon was not only running out on her but would chop her into pieces the next time she saw him.
The cafeteria was four times the size of the one she was used to, and she lingered in the doorway, finally catching the attention of a convent member.
She looked around the area where his desk had been and spotted a perfume bottle similar to the one he'd give her before.
She.d been the reason Kris turned his back on him, and she.d been the one to bring the vial to the demon she thought was Ully.
The new necklace she wore that matched the one she bought for Evelyn glimmered in the mirror.
How did she find the one to take her home without telling Romas?
Wondering how much he should say, A'Ran's gaze went to another screen first, the one listing the details of their unsuccessful peace mission.
Her skin was golden from the sun, which brought out the enigmatic eyes, and made them glow with the otherworldly beauty displayed by her and the one called Evelyn.
He'd hoped Ne'Rin to be the one sending him daily updates to the battle strategies and plans.
She felt the familiar, core-deep connection, the one intimate enough for her body to respond, as he held her gaze.
Mansr took her a different route than the one she'd used to enter, one that sloped down and then up.
Kiera's eyes went over all her paintings, settling again on the one of A'Ran.
She had changed to the white dress, the one she'd worn to dinner that night and the hem touched the tops of her bare feet, which pointed downward.
Miss Worthington was the one that actually found them ladies.
I'm the one who chauffeurs you all over Montrose!
But ol' Jerome, he'd rather pretend I was the one that never happened.
Like if I'm in a ball game, I'm the one who has the ground ball roll between my legs.
The rest of the one hour trip to Ouray was driven in silence.
That's the one kiss you get for all nineteen cards.
Perhaps the reverend was the one who found her.
She's the one bed-hopping and acting like a looney.
I long to share my secret with the one I so love, but then fear and doubt overtake me before the words will leave my lips.
Someone cut the son of a bitch's line and I'm the one who's stuck trying to find out who did it.
That's the one time I've ever pointed my piece when I had no business doing it.
He's the one who told me—not Edith, even though he claims that was what she told him.
Deep down, you still don't think Edith was the one who cut the line!
Edith Shipton was protecting the one person she truly loved, her son Donnie.
So you're guessing he was the one who took the Annie papers, the ones Donnie lost?
He was the one who kept at it.
His ego and sense of dominance over her wouldn't let him allow her to be the one walking away.
Frederick found suitable clothing for his guests and in turn, they each retired to the one bedchamber of the cottage to wash and change.
How sad it would be if she didn't care about the one thing that defined him.
It differed from the one from the park.
Ah, but you see, she is the one who stole mine.
Upon entering the music room, she grabbed her throw pillow, sat in her usual chair and cooed, "Pleeeeze do that one about the clouds, the one you always lock the door for?"
Victor has promised I will be the one to stake you.
But every dime spent on the house meant that much less she could invest in the dairy - and the dairy was the one thing that stood a chance of stimulating her anemic savings account.
I'm the one who talked you into this goat dairy business.
Within seconds the one hoof was visible again and the doe was screaming in agony.
Is this the one you took to the fair?
Oberhasli, Pygmy, Nigerian Dwarf, Angora... that's the one everybody confuses with a sheep...
Yet she had an ever growing feeling that Alex was the one.
But Katie isn't the one responsible for my visits.
One thing was for sure; if anything needed moving, he was the one she was going to get to do it.
You were the one who started talking about riding the beaches and making l...
Alex was the one.
You're the one who taught me not to put all my eggs in one basket.
She was the one.
The other walls of the octagon-shaped command center were occupied by silent, animated screens similar to the one the underground security commander appeared on.
Keep me apprised of when the troops bring in the one they found down the mountain.
Her fingers opened to reveal a keypad similar to the one Brady delivered.
He didn't know, and he knew the one person who might wasn't about to tell.
And you're the one who walked away from me earlier.
The forest looked little different from the one they'd just left.
Usually, he was the one doing it, so she'd listened to him.
When Kelli woke her, the warehouse was dark, except for the low light of lanterns like the one dangling from the ceiling into Lana's room.
A cool breeze swept over the river, and Lana shivered until they neared one of the spits, the one with the least amount of people there.
So we have three to check in the box we identified, if we include the one in Randolph.
I'm the one who should be sorry.
The door cracked open, revealing a similar platform to the one that had been on the other side of the river.
Rhyn approached the boundaries of his newest prison – the one meant to keep everyone else on the Caribbean Sanctuary safe from the magic he couldn't control.
Rhyn's jaw clenched, and he fought the raw feeling inside him, the one that betrayed him every time he tried to convince himself he'd survived worse.
She wanted to kill the one person who always believed in me.
He called another portal and strode through it to the house of the one brother he'd come to almost trust. Kiki's feet were propped on a cast iron table while he gazed intently at the screen of his trusty iPad.
A sting bit the arm opposite the one Katie had touched in his dream. He whirled and glared at Kiki, who waited expectantly. "Tell me if it does something," Kiki said.
You couldn't take us all, and I'm certain I'd be the one who's left behind. Humans take priority to you angels. No, sweetmeats, I won't help you escape.
It pointed to her other hand – the one holding food cubes - then to the trees.
Gabe leaned across her to grab the bag with his weapons' polishing supplies. A necklace with two emeralds – identical to the one he'd given her to wear – dangled above her.
The leather-like necklace itself contained the stiffness of something new, rather than the well-worn suppleness of the one around her neck.
The real Gabriel had been the one to tell her that the child she carried was a girl. "I guess we have to wait and see," she forced herself to say and added silently, I hope you're safe, Gabriel, wherever you are.
And I thought he'd started to accept a role on the Council, even if it was the one of the enforcer.
Andre's memory may live on, but I'm the one who inherited his responsibilities.
Kiki left, and Kris felt he'd frustrated the one brother willing to help him.
His eyes went to Rhyn's back as his half-brother hacked through a few branches in their way. The sense that the exiled half-demon could do what he couldn't returned. Kris touched his collarbone, the one Jade had broken.
I swear it, Kris. She was planted by the demons. I don't know why they chose you, but they did, and you're the one she came after. She reeked of demon, Kris.
Rhyn opened the door, surprised to find the jailer's room empty. He'd expected Jared at least. He closed the door quietly behind him. He snatched the talisman hanging near the door, the one that freed inmates from their cells. He ignored the quickening of his pulse as he entered the familiar cell block.
Maybe this was the one time he let it all hang out—or maybe you don't have to be drunk to be stupid.
Dean also asked Mayer about the one day Byrne had been absent—a Thursday the fourth of March—about two months earlier.
But let's hope now they're satisfied you're not the one to lead them to Baratto.
Let the old man think of something—after all, he'd been the one to make the Scranton connection, however tenuous, in the first place.
And every time it's been really, really tough, you're the one who's been there.
What on earth made you think that camper was the one you were looking for?
No. It's a tour, like the one I'm signed up for in Iowa, only this one is in the Colorado mountains.
Dean spent a pocket full of coins before he found the one housing the person for whom he was searching.
I was the one who spotted the suitcases while Byrne was around the corner doing his business so I pitched them in his trunk without opening them.
Just think, it was the goat dairy that brought Alex to you, and I was the one who came up with the idea.
She was the one who wanted Alex to make the decisions - and the goat dairy had never been more than an income to her.
He was the one with the money.
She'd trade it for the one he took away in a heartbeat.
She's had centuries of learning to control it because ultimately she is the one who will suffer for any poor decisions.
The man doesn't get pregnant and she's the one who will get in trouble.
Lori and Josh's relationship was the one in trouble.
Maybe she was the one who was lonely for it.
If you really like it, then that's the one you should get.
You were the one who called him that, remember?
She had been the one who insisted that they wait until after marriage, but it was Alex who came up with sound reasoning for it.
She was the one who wanted him to make the decisions.
All this would be more fun for you if you were the one doing all the work.
Well, you're the one who put that thought in his head.
Yet she was the one who had established the gender parameters by telling him she wanted him to wear the pants.
Maybe he wanted to be the one who initiated love making all the time – like that was going to happen.
I don't think I'm the one you should ask about that, Josh.
He preferred the one in their bedroom, leaving her the privacy of her own bathroom.
He would have seen on the ID that she was the one calling.
She was the one who kept saying no to his only possible solution.
I'm the one who should be apologizing.
Was he the one who told you about the girl?
I went there to talk to her, but I realized you were the one I needed to talk to, not her.
He had taken her favorite picture of her parents to an artist and had a painting made that matched the one of his parents.
You're the one with a degree in animal husbandry.
Now he thought he had been betrayed by the one person that he had believed he could trust.
I'm the one who's been pushing to adopt a baby.
You're the one who wouldn't settle for less than your own blood.
I'm the one you should turn to now — and God.
She should be the one crying.
I was the one who was cold — unforgiving.
She said she never wanted a baby — that Josh was the one who wanted it.
I thought ... but you were always the one who wanted to adopt a baby.
I don't want the one I have to grow up like this!
She tugged off the necklace around her neck, the one marking her as the last in her father's line.
Looking at her daughter, she was grateful for the one part of her life that brought her joy.
She stopped and looked around, searching for the one that her family served.
He stopped a short distance from the one who spoke and drew a knife.
If you knew the one I plan on pushing you down—and I will manipulate the fate of a selfish creature like you—you'd be running out of here screaming.
Unable to love her husband, she'd taken it out on the one who meant the most to her, Talia.
But she wouldn't be the one to hurt him again, and he wasn't going to be the one to pry open the door to her heart.
Jenn snatched her clothes and fled, Traveling to the one place where she knew the threat and it didn't confuse her.
Her thoughts turned to the one person she felt comfortable talking to.
I lost sight of my mission, she said, grateful for the one piece of advice she could stomach.
He searched until it was almost too dark to see, finally coming to the one with the same marks as Jenn's necklace.
It sounds like he's the one manipulating you.
The dark note was back, the one she didn't like.
Even the one about how you abandoned your family.
There would be one world, the one she shared with Darian.
If I've learned anything from watching Sofi and Damian, it's that the mate of a god is truly the one with rank.
Taran led her down a street lined with small inns before spotting the one marked as Memon said.
Sirian paced a small underground cell beside the one Taran had occupied his first night in the city.
She pondered the idea numbly until it was replaced with the vision from her dream, the one where Taran killed her.
Yes, it's my truck, but you're the one who had it restored.
Rob latched on to the largest bedroom – the one she had used.
It was strange that the one she had met twice would be the one she knew the least
You're the one who has had the bad day.
She was the one who caused this disaster.
You're the one who tacked on the reasoning that he had become irresponsible.
She wasn't the one being difficult, and her reasoning was sound.
Maybe you're the one who has his attention.
Alex is the one with the money.
And yet she was the one who felt uncomfortable about him.
He was the one who insisted that she hire help.
About time she was thinking Sam might be the one she wanted to hire, Sam threw a kink into the process.
You're the one who insisted that I hire someone.
She was the one who insisted on having a man who would wear the pants – even if she didn't fully understand what that encompassed.
But then, she wasn't the one who wanted a divorce.
He was the one person on earth who could send her heart into a frenzy with one kiss.
He was the one who bolted.
Well, I'm the one who decides whether I let darkness control me or I overcome it.
Legally, maybe, but you're the one who earned it.
He was the one who wanted a divorce.
I wasn't the one who wanted a divorce.
You were the one who left.
We sat right up there in my office the day Morino died and you were the one who mentioned divorce, not me.
Sure, I said the D word first, but I wasn't the one who said I wanted to get away from all the arguing.
Denton was the one who hated to swim in the ocean.
Would you put some on the one on my back?
I was the one who came pounding on your door, not the other way around... remember?
If anyone could do it, you'd be the one.
She had been the one who hid so much.
Obviously you're the one with all the experience.
That smile again, the one that scared him, crossed the stranger's face.
She, Eden, the Original Human, would be the one who saved the human realm by killing the Gatekeeper, the God who maintained the bridges between worlds.
She knew what Xander was; after all, she was the one who taught him war and bloodlust.
She was the one who healed his wounds until he was old enough to do it on his own.
Of all the White God's brothers, Dusty was the one most likely to understand Xander's position.
Just the one we seek.
She was watching the latest of his two TV shows, the one where he was a cook.
Hmmm. The one creature I can't kill is after me.
