Are you sure they're saying "suite"? I think it more likely they're saying "suit yourself."

suit yourself — Have it your way, however you like it, do what you like, etc.

Suit yourself is a form of "as it suits you", with the definition as stated above. – Zoot Feb 18 '11 at 3:56

@gayancc, Note that "suite" and "suit" are pronounced quite differently, so it should be easy to tell which they're using on the TV show. – Marthaª Feb 18 '11 at 4:08

"Suite" and "suit" should be pronounced quite differently, but here in Western Pennsylvania, people speak of a "bedroom suite" (of furniture) and pronounce it "suit". – coneslayer Jul 21 '14 at 0:27
