    Phrase came from popular russian meme. Before "memoizing" this phrase was not so popular. – Zxcvb Mar 2 '16 at 8:41

    @shabunc да. Но не думаю, что это повод меня минусовать. – Viktor Oct 12 '16 at 14:09
  • минусовать может любой пользователь не понравившиеся вопросы, задавать вопросы на которые очевидно вы знаете ответ - вообще-то это тоже по правилам и стопроцентно приемлемый кейс. Я просто не совсем догнал - как говорят мои русские друзья - чего это - так они тоже говорят - за закос под иностранца :P А если серьёзно, то понимание является ли автор вопроса носителем языка или нет иногда помогает дать более полезный и полный ответ. – shabunc Oct 12 '16 at 14:12

"Ой, все" - it is a very informal way to stop discussion. It is mostly used by women as a final argument in a dispute.

Women always want to say the "last word" in any dispute but if they feel they don't have any more agruments they can say "Ой, все" and can even leave the room-)))

If you hear "Ой, все" it usially means that you are right.

This expression means something along the lines of "I'm done", meaning that someone is not willing to continue an argument. Quite often it implies that a person saying "Oй все" lost an argument. The phrase can also be used as a joke to mock such behaviour.

'Ohh, that's all.' literally.

It means like you don't wanna chat, you wanna change a topic of the speech or dialogue. Sometimes it means that opponent don't wanna think about this problem/task right now, because he/she can't see solution or does not agree with your solution/thoughts. Yes, sometimes it can be translated as 'Lets stop talking, I STILL don't agree with you. There is no point in our dialogue/You are hopeless.' Also "ой, всё" can be used as a joke, not seriously.

    It's also used a lot to make fun of female logic. Especially like a last argument in discussion that can't be beaten. – UVV Feb 26 '16 at 8:14

are everybody sure they get the meaning of the phrase right?

i can envision two meanings

А

Enough of that!

to cut the conversation short

B

Wow, is that right?

a sarcastic remark meant to belittle the significance of the interlocutor's statement

in this sense the phrase can also look like

Ой (ну теперь) всё!

всё in the sense of всё пропало

synonymous to such sarcastic phrases as

Ой, горе-то какое!
Ой, что ж теперь делать?
Ой, как жить-то теперь?

It is used as an indication that something happened or broke unexpectedly. In an overly cute and helpless sort of way. Kind of like "oopsie!"

  • I suppose, it would be simply "ой". – Nikolja Sep 28 '16 at 22:56
  • It's more about "ну, всё [приехали]", "ой всё" is a slightly different thing – shabunc Oct 12 '16 at 14:18
