Derived from the Latin phrase “Quid Pro Quo” (this for that), Quid Pro Quip is a style of conversation in which persons exchange witticisms or gibes.
Mom: “Get out of bed, John! We’re going to church.”
John: “Fuck no, I’m hungover.”
Mom: “Don’t you want to be a good Christian?”
John: “Shit mom…Going to church doesn't make you a Christian any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.”
Mom: “I will fucking end you if we have to go quid pro quip on a Sunday morning…”
