The Bee's Knees
The phrase "The Bee's Knees" means excellence or the highest quality.

Popularized by America's 1920 socialites, or flappers, nonsense phrases were used to signify the height of excellence. While a number of similar phrases from this time in history have faded out of usage, the bee's knees and the cat's pajamas have endured.

Use Example - You brought me breakfast in bed? Darling, you are the bee's knees.
