    • Prue: Nope, that's all she wrote.

      This is a somewhat commonly used phrase of debatable origin. The standard theory is that it comes from when soldiers at war would receive "Dear John" letters from their girlfriends implicitly but not expressively ending their relationships. They would read the letters aloud and when questioned by their buddies as to the remaining contents, they would respond "That's all she wrote." It's usage today typically expresses disappointment in the lack of more information, or to express that "that's all there is."
