Quarrel with bread and butter- Bread and butter, here, indicate the means of one's living. If a subordinate in an organization is quarrelsome or if he is not patient enough to bear the reprimand he deserves, gets angry and retorts or provokes the higher up., the top man dismisses him from the job. So, he loses the job that gave him read and butter. Hence we say, he quarreled with bread and butter (manager or the top man) and lost his job
Quiet as a cat- If somebody is as quiet as a cat they make as little noise as possible and try to be unnoticeable
Quiet as a mouse- If someone's as quiet as a mouse, they make absolute no noise
Queer fish- A strange person is a queer fish
