The term "your back is against the wall" means that you have reached a point where you have no other options. When your back is against the wall you have no other course than to either give up or move forward and face what has you backed against the wall. Since this question was put into the Christian category I will answer it as a Christian. There will be times in your life that things will go wrong. It will seem that all things are against you and you have your back against the wall with no way out. I fully believe that Satan makes you feel like you have been abandoned and unloved so that you will give up. This is a lie. God will never abandon you. I have had my back against the wall countless times in my life and each time God has saved me. When my back is against the wall it gives me time to pray to God that He will help and deliver me. He has never failed me. Also when your back is against the wall it gives you something to push off from. When your back is against the wall, Look up!

Why can you not possibly bend over and touch your toes when you stand with your back and heels against a wall?
Because your Center of Gravity moves, as you bend over to touch your toes, the center of Gravity of a human being, is usually located at the belly button, when you bend over, …you're center of Gravity pulls away from you, thus making you fall over, and loose balance, therefore it is impossible to touch your toes, with your heels against a wall.
It's from the movie Red Dawn, it is simply codewords for something, here is the quote: Radio Free America Announcer : It's 11:59 on Radio Free America; this is Uncle Sam, …with music, and the truth until dawn. Right now I've got a few words for some of our brothers and sisters in the occupied zone: "the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall", "john has a long mustache, john has a long mustache". It's twelve o'clock, American, another day closer to victory. And for all of you out there, on, or behind the line, this is your song. [ the Battle Hymn of the Republic begins to play ] This style of codeword/phrase system was used in Europe during WW2 to send instructions to operatives behind enemy lines. The Chair is Against the Wall could mean that a set of railway tracks must be blown up or a supply drop was en route to a group of operatives. "John has a long mustache" is a direct reference to the Allied code phrase for Operation Overlord, the Normandy Invasion (D-Day, WW2). The signal, like many others, was sent over normal radio broadcasts; each codeword/phrase meant something to a specific group or individual listening in Nazi occupied territory. This specific code phrase was the signal to the French Resistance (the Maquis) that the invasion would begin the next day. To them, this meant that need to execute pre-arranged sabotage and other preparations as planned before the landings on the French coast. The whole sequence is an homage to the movie "The Longest Day", in which French Resistance members are listening to the radio, and hear a sequence of the normally meaningless (to them) phrases, until they hear "John has a long mustache" repeated twice, and set in motion the pre-invasion plans. The Germans also realize the invasion is about to begin, but due to Allied deceptions, the Nazis are still unsure as to the landing site. In "The Longest Day", the sequence was "Molasses tomorrow will bring forth cognac", then "John has a long mustache".

No, not necessarily. Some children to that as a way to relax. This is why rocking a baby is what mothers do to get them to relax and sleep.
Up against it, back against the wall, up against the wall is not an enviable position to be in. It means you are not in a good spot, you are in trouble with forces closing in …on you. Usually used at work to mean that there is a lot of work to do and it is likely very difficult to achieve a goal.
It's a way of showing you're very frustrated. The image is of youbeing so upset that you're banging your head on the wall becauseyou can't think of anything else to do.
Nothing. You may be thinking of "your back is to the wall," which means that you have nowhere else to go and are trapped facing whatever situation is before you.
If it was during an argument, it probably means he is wanting to hit you. Really hard to give an answer without knowing the situation
This is not an idiom. It is an expression whose meaning may be deduced from its component parts, unlike an idiom, whose meaning cannot be deduced from its component parts. It …means having extremely limited options while being forced to act, like a person who is cornered in a fight.
