It means:
no f---ing way!
not gonna happen!
don't even think about it!

PS your eyes are hiding behind those dark, goofy sunglasses.
The song, 'i wear my sunglasses at night..." comes to mind.

"Never in a million years."

Pretty much the same as "when pigs fly."

IN A PIG'S EYE - "Never, highly unlikely. Whether the originator of the saying meant that a poor idea was something to put in a pig's eye or that it would look bad to a pig's eye is a matter of speculation. As an expression of scorn the expression was picked up in 1872 by Petroleum V. Nasby (David Locke) in one of his satirical newspaper columns: 'A poetical cotashun.which.wuz, -- 'Kum wun, kim all, this rock shel fly From its firm base - in a pig's eye.'" From "The Dictionary of Cliches" by James Rogers (Ballantine Books, New York, 1985).
