: Has anyone heard of the saying "one in the eye".....if so, do you know its origin..my wife tells me I've got it wrong and its "put in the eye" !

Could you use it in a complete sentence? I'm having a hard time imagining a sentence in which I could replace "one" with "put" and have it make sense (but I'm sure someone will come up with one since I said that ;-) ). RRC
