Here are a few I heard coming up: The young man asking the old man about his possible loss of sex drive, the old man replied; "No way! An old rat loves cheese, just like a young rat!"
Grand Pa's famous pick-up line: "You got the honey, I got the money!"

Something my dad said that stuck with me over the years...
Just remember, when dealing with so-called experts - an ex is a has-been and a spurt is nothing more than a drip under pressure.

and from a song -
That is an old saying I just made up.

My Father made this one up. My Mother would make something and she would say,I don't think it came out right and my wonderful,dear, thoughtful Father would be so nice to say to her,I will eat it,if it kills me.  My Mother hated that saying.  :D I can still hear him say it.

Yet your mother would keep saying "I don't think it came out right" just so she could hear "I will eat it if it kills me".   
Maybe your father was just trying to let her know he didn't like hearing her say "it didn't come out right" and didn't dare express that thought.  ;)
Good smart 'ol dad was going to eat whatever she fixed, and knew better than to complain about it.  ;D

"Good enough for who it's for"  when finishing a project.

Pretty much my stock answer for anytime a boss asked what something looked like after I finished it, "Looks good from my house." Was working a job in Terre Haute Indiana when I gave a boss that answer. "You can see it from your house? Where is your house at?"

"Baton Rouge, Louisiana."
