"You won't get off with impunity, by Apollo, for doing this." -- "What pleasure it would give you to eat [something prepared] from vinegar: a lawsuit."

Presented here as a single sentence: in fact an exchange of retorts (between Bdelykleon and his father Philokleon) in Aristophanes, Wasps 1366-7 (not Adler's '1396'): see web address 1. (The two verses are separated at kappa 730 and omega 231.)
The headword phrase itself generated no scholiastic comment, beyond the claim that 'lawsuit' comes unexpectedly for 'meat' or suchlike.
