English term or phrase: Knock your pan in
Does anyone know what this means? It's a part of a dialogue in this film I'm subtitling; at a certain point a man walks up a hill towards a boy who is already on top of the hill. The boy says: "All right, mister?" to which the man answers "knock your pan in" (looking very tired of climbing the hill).

Explanation:
Aan de hand van de voorzet van Kate denk ik dat de man gewoon een grapje maakt en de uitdrukking "knocking your pan out" omkeert met de bedoeling:
Uitslover ben ij zeg!
Doe eens rustig aan, zeg
Volgende keer niet zo je best doen, joh
