      It's probably useful to note that, depending on delivery, the phrase can be used in two ways, or at least was in my family. It can be either a warm farewell, or a somewhat sarcastic response to a plan, sort of like a Yiddish "yeah, whatever."

        I agree with Jill. I remember my grandmother saying it and only in the sarcastic way. -- PS -- Are you Jill from Jill & Deven?

        1. re: BridgetJonesDairy

          Yes, while she might not want to own up to it, she is the Jill from & Deven.

              Yeah, I knew that. Jill didn't. I filled her in.
