Latin Question

My friend and I were playing Harry Potter and he made up a spell with "ex cetra" in teh words and I said "thats not real latin" but he said his brother took latin for a year at uni so I had to believe him. So then I looked it up online and it was true, latinos use "ex cetra" to mean the same thing as "ex cetra" does in english. So my question for you guys is, what other fun phrases like this have latinos taken from english? I only ask because I'm a bit of a langauge buff and I find this kind of rubbish interesting.
