Some moms have a catchphrase, or something they say over and over, probably while their kids roll their eyes at hearing it yet again. BuzzFeed rounded up the signature one-liners used by people’s moms and these are some of the classics you’ve definitely heard from a mom before.

  • "Every time we went on vacation and us kids started complaining, she would yell, 'We are making MEMORIES!'"
  • "English is my mom's second language, so instead of saying, 'It's my way or the highway,' my mom says, 'My way is the highway.'"
  • "'Let me show you a trick I learned in the Army...' My mom was never in the Army!"
  • "When leaving somewhere, she always said, 'We're off like a herd of turtles'"
  • "At the grocery store and looking at prices: 'What? Do they put gold in it?'"
  • "My mom: 'Are you drinking enough water?' Got a headache? Drink more water. Upset stomach? Drink water. Bad grades? You need more water. Bone protruding from your knee? Drink some water; you'll be fine."
