I think the phrase is

Oil and water do not mix


The string of characters HIJKLMNO is sometimes used as a pun to refer to water because it is the letters "H to O" (sounds like H2O) and it seems as though the letters O,I,L are separating from this string, that is, the OIL is not mixing in the water.
