Idioms and Phrases with you don't say

you don't say

How surprising, is that true? Also, I find that hard to believe. For example, I've been working on this project for two years.—You don't say, or The man who runs this soup kitchen is a real saint.—You don't say! This expression, a shortening of you don't say so, may be used straightforwardly or ironically. [Late 1800s]
