Things Mom used to say...(or your Dad)

Hey everyone, what are some unusual things your parents used to say? Extra points if you've caught yourself saying them!

When asked "Where are we going?"

Mom's reply "To h377 in a handbasket". On her defense, we were awful kids.
"Do I need to write that on your forehead?"

Imp got that alot.
So funny you mentioned "Where are we going?"

Sometimes Mom and Dad would just say, "Let's go somewhere!" Out of the blue.

We kids would ask, "Where are we going?"

He would always say "Going to see a man about a horse!"

I think he said that when he didn't really have an answer. He just wanted to take a drive and see where we ended up.
"Are you wearing clean underwear? You never know when you will be in a wreck."

To me, there was just something wrong with that on all levels..........
"No good deed ever goes unpunished"
"Close the door! Were you born in a barn?"
"There's no rest for the wicked!"
"We'll be there when we get there!"

I know I can think of more. Most of them are so true LOL
