How about quit your crying or I'll give you something to cry about which used to make me blubber even more from the fear of a spanking. Aaaahhh. Memories. :)
That one might be more generational than regional ;)

Even if I found him freezing to death in a blizzard, I wouldn't give him the steam off of my s***.

Round here we talk about highways by geography. 
Like the towns they connect, the places they go through and mountain passes they go over.

As in when giving directions, one might say "jest head north outta Durango and go up an over Molass and down into Silvertown, but just keep goin over Red Mountain and you'll drop right down into Ouray."

You always know an outta stater, or front ranger, ifn they tell you to take 285 to 160 to 550.

Apparently, we don't have many roads.

I think my favorite regionalism here in LA is the freeway notion. Ignoring the plethora of names every freeway has (and will vary based on the your mile marker) or the fact that some freeways that go N/S are marked as E/W and vice versa, my favorite is the reference scheme.

In the rest of the country an interstate is always I-something. Where I grew up, I was used to talking about I-4, I-95, I-75, Highway 50, State Road 441, etc.

Out here in Los Angeles - it's all "the" as in "the 5", "the 101", "the 210", "the 2", etc, etc.

Took a while to get used to, but now I can't imagine saying I-5, Highway 101, etc.

In Seattle, if its an interstate, it gets an I, like I-5. Everything else is just called by the number. 520, 2, 522 or whatever. We don't even put a "the" in front of it.

back east in boston they do the same thing. referring to which subburb you live in one might ask, "is that inside or outside the 495?"

That was a hard habit to shake when I moved to Chicago. Of course around here, they mostly use the name and not the number, but you get to use the: The Dan Ryan.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Here on Hawaii Island we don't have interstates, so we don't call them anything.

On Oahu they have the H1, H2 and H3, but can the really be called interstates?

Only if they are stateside.
