Besides, I think that the spouses shold never use the silent treatement, but talk as much as they can. They need to share their feelings.

Hello sinakabiri,

You can find the transcript for this scene by clicking the 'transcript' link under the video windown. However, I can't see this phrase anywhere in the scene and I'm afraid you must have misheard it.

'What on earth...' is an exclamation we use when we are very surprised about something - you can find more information and examples by using our Cambridge Dictionaries Online search tool.

The second part of the sentence is not a standard form - there is no idiom that I know of like this.

Best wishes,
