The Classics

Don't ask me, ask your mother.

Don't worry. It's only blood.

I'll play catch after I read the paper.

A little dirt never hurt anyone - just wipe it off..

Get your elbows off the table.

I told you, keep your eye on the ball.

Who said life was supposed to be fair.

Always say please and thank you. That way, you get more.

If you forget, you'll be grounded till the end of the world.

You call that a haircut?

"Hey" is for horses.

This will hurt me a lot more than it hurts you.

Turn off those lights. Do you think I am made of money?

Don't give me any of your lip, young lady.

You call that noise "music"?

We're not lost. I'm just not sure where we are.

No, we're not there yet.

Shake it off. It's only pain.

When I was your age , I would never have....

As long as you live under my roof, you'll live by my rules.

I'll tell you why. Because I said so. That's why.

Sit up straight!

So you think you're smart , do you?

What's so funny? Wipe that smile off your face.

Young ladies perspire, they do not sweat.

If I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times.

C'mon, you throw like a girl.

You want something to do? I'll give you something to do.

This is your last warning.

I'm not sleeping, I was watching that channel.

I'm not watching television. I'm resting my eyes.

I'm not just talking to hear my own voice!

When I was a kid we were so poor, I ate dirt and was glad to have it.

If you fall off that wall and break your legs then don't come running to me.

What do you think I am - a bank?

What part of NO don't you understand?

I don't care what everybody else is doing! I'm not everybody else's father!

Enough is enough!

Don't make me stop the car!

What did I just get finished telling you?

Two wrongs do not make a right.

Stop crying or I'll give you a reason to cry.

If your friend jumped off a bridge would you?

If I didn't love you so much I wouldn't punish you! I would you do whatever you wanted.

Eat it! It will grow hair on your chest!

Honorable Mentions...

Life's tough all over more than it is anywhere else.

Are you trying to air condition the house?...close the refrigerator.

Young lady - you'd better straighten up - and don't roll those eyes at me.

DON'T wipe your hands on your pants!

You need to have your haircut before I get home from work, or I'll cut it for you.

Be a leader not a follower.

Why the malice? A little pain never hurt anybody.

I knew how to cook when I was your age, young lady.

Don't take yourself so seriously, take what you do seriously!

You're always a winner if you lose with a smile.

That's the best way I know to put out an eye!

You could drive a wooden man nuts!

Four things come not back: time past, the spoken word, the sped arrow and a missed opportunity.

Worrying about things you can't change is like a rocking chair... it gives you something to do, but it doesn't get you anywhere.
