    Question Now I've seen everything

    Scenario: About American cartoon- the Simpsons

    The Simpsons went out for dinner. When they came in a restaurant, Marge noticed on the wall there's a picture which has an aligator with sunglasses. She commented, "An alligator with sunglasses? Huh! Now I've seen everything."

    Question:

    Does "Now I've seen everything" mean she have seen the strangest thing in the world? Is it a usual expression for native speakers?

    If I saw a very old lady was climbling up a tree and I felt very surprised, can I say "NoW I've seen everything"?

    Re: Now I've seen everything

    It's an expression indicating that there is nothing more that can surprise one. It can also be regarded as indicating disbelief. It is not uncommon, and your suggested use is fine.
