You'll poke your eye out with that!
Yes, you have to!
Don't you look at me like that!
What the hell were you thinking?
What do I look like? Santa Claus?
All right, who broke it?
I'm going to count to three.
You want me to wash your mouth out with soap?
Don't make me come over there!
Where did you hear that word?
Get that out of your mouth!
Take your hands out of there.
Your face is going to freeze like that.
Stop crying, or I'll give you something to cry about!
Well, I'm not so-and-so's mother.
If everyone else jumped into the lake, would you?
What for? I'll give you what for!
Do you think money grows on trees?
For the tenth time, no!
What will the neighbors say?
Wash behind your ears!
Close the door! Were you raised in a barn?
How many times do I have to tell you?
Go ask your father.
>>>To which, father said: What did your mother say?
Why? Because I said so!
Don't make me stop this car!
You're not leaving this table till you finish your plate.
Go to your room!
When your father gets home, you're gonna get it!
It was good enough for your brother, it's good enough for you.
There are kids starving in China. (Africa, wherever)
OK, but if you hurt yourself, don't come crying to me!
Stop that, or you'll go blind!
Just wait till you have kids of your own!

And when I had a kid of my own, guess what I did?
I told her the same things. History does repeat itself
