How about

No peace for the wicked (no Ps, Jack the Ripper could be considered wicked, etc.)

share|improve this answer

This is not the intended answer(my achievement)...confirmed by OP

There had been a movie named

Jack the Ripper

So the phrase can be

Pee in space

or maybe

Pee in space suit

'Pee in Space-suit' would have been funnier, but sorry. Not Correct ;) – Prashant Mar 14 at 11:54

It may be...

Rest In Peace

Because:

Only rest of the word is 'P's only, and Jack is the RIPper..

It clearly is correct – manshu Mar 14 at 11:57
    
No it is not. The name holds a significance along with the way it is displayed. – Prashant Mar 14 at 11:59

I am hoping it wont be "Peace Out" either based on your comment. – Ghapla Mar 14 at 12:05
    
This one is my favorite tbh – question_asker Mar 14 at 12:05

No peace for the wicked

I'm too slow :) – Tom Mar 14 at 12:06
    
correct one @Tom – Prashant Mar 14 at 12:11

So sorry officer, can't fully recollect his name 'cause...

...he scared the P's outta me!!!

Perhaps

Peace in Space (http://www.peaceinspace.com/)

Argument:

1. The space in JACK THE RI__ER corresponds to two Ps, which sounds like PEACE
2. The outer space treaty (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_Space_Treaty) is sometimes called PEACE IN SPACE

Close. Think about the name too. – Prashant Mar 14 at 11:55

I think it will be

The missing piece ( The missing Ps)

Since

It should be JACK THE RIPPER with two Ps missing (JACK THE RI__PER).

and

"A Piece Of Apron" is known as the missing piece in the Jack the Ripper case file.

the missing PEACE is relevent to the answer. But nice one. :) – Prashant Mar 14 at 12:07

Shooting in the dark here:

JACK THE RISKER
JACK THE RINGER

It's actually a Three's Company reference. The character Jack was played by John Ritter. – Darrel Hoffman Mar 14 at 13:13

Will be two PP's

Peace in Space will fit
