well, well, well
- (current in Britain, but dated in the US and Canada) Indicating pondering or consideration, often with sarcasm or mock surprise.
- Well, well, well. What have we here?
- (with sarcasm) Well, well, well. Look who's back. And they said we'd never see him again.
The form with three wells may be a little stronger, or more sarcastic, than well, well.
