Implied phrases or sayings

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

I hear this sometimes as: "When in Rome..." with the remainder implied.

I can't think of another phrase that can be shortened and still keep the meaning. For example, I never heard, "People in glass houses..." with the rest implied. Are there others?

Funny should mention "People in glass houses..." as an example, because I hear that all the time as an implied phrase.

Another one I hear a lot is "If you can't take the heat..."

"Hey guys, watch this!"

The implied part is a trip to the ER.
