loose lips sink ships — (during World War 2) Unguarded talk may give useful information to the enemy [phrase.org]

In a movie, a girl told her boyfriend a gossip and asked him to keep it secret. Then, the boyfriend passed on this gossip to his basketball buddy and asked him to keep secret, and so did the buddy to other teammates. In the end, everyone got to know the secret. The girl was mad at her boyfriend and said: “Loose lips sink ships.”
