A phrase that means simply to find a better way. Can be used in any situation and is not meant only for the literal selling of the family silver during economic downturns.

A last resort when all other options have been exhausted.
Moe: I didn't study for the theoretical quantum physics test.

Joe: I'll tell them you are home sick with anaphylactic shock.
Moe: No, dude. I've already used that one.
Flo: Besides, wouldn't you need a doctor's note? Better to just sell the silver.

Sparky: I wish I had the cash for a new Apple product - the new i-Anything is out !
Razor: You tapped out, bro ?
Sparky - Word - I may have to sell the silver.
Razor: Day-um - that's rough.
