Favorite "foreign" language phrase?

Being as how the "official" language of this site is English, I mean any non-English phrase.

I like:

Cest la vie (such is life)
Disgraziata (Disgraceful)
Sta ta zi (Shut your mouth)

No points will be taken off for spelling.

I use Spanglish alot, but tend to say these often..

"Ay dios mio!"
"No esta aqui"

I'm sure there's more.. I'm having lots of brain gas at the mo.

Maybe I shouldn't translate. We're such a rude bunch, us Boers.

When I was taking Spanish classes, I would come up with little dittys while driving, because I started to think in Spanish! Here's one:

no tengo mucho dinero
porque estoy muy muy pobre

or, on a good day it might have been:

tengo muy mucho dinero
si si estoy muy muy rico

there's even a tune that I'd sing this to...

and that's what happens when you combine a limited vocabulary and crack

Weird words and phrases my family and friends use on a daily basis (sorry for the spellings!):

Stop your suessen and sonniken! = Stop throwing a fit/whining!

kijk [kike] es = look at that/look here/look at me!

Why are you so benaud? or Look at the benaud pupetje with his luppy/lupetje= Why are so you frustrated/depressed? or Look at the sad little boy/person with his blanky.

Also, underwear are always referred to as broekes [brooooookeys with a rolled "r"]. Junk or messes are always krubetje [krubetcha] or rumeltje, or just "crubbies" for short.

We also say "jest [yest] da boot off" a lot, which refers to the people with heavier Dutch accents. Like "You know Mr. De Vries, the one that's jest da boot off."
