While examining a part from a batch being made, Fred would say "You do nice work. Damn little of it, but nice work."

Upon discovering I was carrying two extra parts in a run, Fred would say (in his best German accent) "Vell it's a good ting vere not making battleships."

When my child or employee, after being dispatched to get something, would return to report "I can't find it."
I would reply "If I go out there and find it, can I hit you with it?"

I had an old Lithuanian boss one time, a great guy. When he came to the US right after WWII, he had a job repairing radios.
Whenever one of my projects would get in trouble, he would tell me "Maybe put more warnish on the vindings".
