Your favourite Swiss German expression


I’m moving to Switzerland soon so have been ghosting this forum for a while.

I know almost no Swiss German, but I remember one phrase. I was once traveling with some Swiss, and one shouted to another “Haschta Pflaeschterli?”, which translates in German as “Hast Du ein Pflaster?”, ie do you have a bandaid?

It sounded so cute it stuck in my memory. As an aid to my learning Swiss German, what are some of your favourite Swiss German expressions?
