: In reply to hell's bell's and little fishes, my grandmother from TN said "ye gods and little gutter fishes."

The most common version of the phrase is "ye gods and little fishes" (878 google hits to 19 for "hell's bells..." to 0 for your grandmbother's gutter variation) but there are a lot of possible combinations seeing some use - hell's bells and cockle shells, etc.
