Spoiler for Answers & Credits

Thanks you two for knocking this one out. I just couldn't let it go unsolved thus the previous bump. Knew you guys would bail me out.

Hogwash, so perhaps not
Left the pub with a prying concern
Flustered and showed the way out
"Cut cut!  From the old car scene"
Deliberately not vixen-like
Act out when gone off track
Piss off a little
Dry drinks don't exist
Slap out of order
Not a current measure of riducule


Each line describes with synonyms/short definitions, two different words and some kind of direction that one of the words should be subtracted from the other. The answer then remains with each of the ten fitting a general theme hinted at in the title. Like these: Somethings Fishy Here Parts Is Parts

hey Y-san, dont think you're necessarily overthinking these.  they are tough, imo.  you got 8. save for a minor grammatical form issue.  looking for another for 4.  made a subtle edit to that one and will also say the last word doesnt help other than the read of the clue.  and as DD elaborated, your hunch was correct.  well done - thanks you two.
