As for completing the proverbs, here goes:

Don’t count your chickens…[in the] House of Terror.
A penny saved is….[a] Broken Shield.
All good things must come[to a] Tether’s End.
When in RomeKill the Clown.
All that glitters is notBlood on the Stars.
A picture is worth aA Joker in the Deck.
When the going gets tough, the tough getA Taste for Violence.
Two wrongs don’t make[an] Alibi at Dusk.
The pen is mightier than….[the] Night Train to Paris.
The squeaky wheel gets[a] Shakedown.
Hope for the best, but prepare forDeath’s Long Shadow.
Birds of a feather flockTurn on the Heat.

Thanks Bev.
