Default Useful French Phrases

Just thought I'd make a thread where you could all post your favourite French phrases, be they useful, wonderful or just plain weird..

Je m'en fous - I don't mind/I don't care
Qu'est-ce qu'il fous la-bas? - What the ****'s he doing over there?
Je m'en vais - I've gotta go
Je me suis mis en route a sept heures - I set out at seven
Soit l'un soit l'autre - One or the other
L'un et l'autre - Both of them
L'un l'autre - One another

L'un ou l'autre - One or the other
Ni l'un ni l'autre - Neither

..a few useful ones.

Chris
It has the beginnings of a useful thread and then it goes haywire but it still has a useful title:

ne t'inquiètes pas: don't worry about it
ça fait rien: it doesn't matter
ça fait pas de mal: it doesn't do any harm

No Please don't leave it to us It's too dangerous We might get lost

Repeat after me:
Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien: No, I have no regrets
