Oh, with the verbing!

Oh, with the verbing! is a phrase commonly used in TV shows and movies, first used by comedian Jerry Lewis. The literal phrase "Oh, with the verbing!" itself is normally used with a verb replacing "verbing," such as "screaming, stabbing, bleeding," hence the name of the phrase. Similar lines related to the phrase are spoken as "The verbing, and the verbing" and "Again with the verbing" and other similar dialogue.
