    Title, basically. I've seen it a few times in various novels, goes something like "I'm <X>? You're <X>! Your sister is <X>! Your whole family is <X>!". Just curious what the source and full, complete quote is.

    This is common banter, I've heard it, spoken it on many occasions. Unless you are asking about its origin, this is just common saying.

    From IRAS chapter 32 translator's note

    This is a popular Chinese slang in the form “You're the one XXX! Your whole damned family XXX!”. It came from “My Own Swordsman” character, Mo Xiaobei. The original text goes along the lines of someone saying to Mo Xiaobei, “Mo Xiaobei, you are a child who matured early!”, before Mo Xiaobei replies “You’re the one maturing early! Your whole damned family matured early!”
