Quien dijo...?

The goal of this worksheet that I have is to match up clever little sayings with who might have said them. Some of these seem really idiomatic, and I would really appreciate some help on whether or not my best guess makes sense.

Vayamos por partes- maybe Jack El Estripador
Yo empecé comiéndome las uñas. -
Al fin solos- ?
Mi esposa tiene un buen fisico- El jorobado de Notre Dame

Shrek said:

Literally it means. I started eating (biting) my nails. I heard this as a joke in spanish TV show

More precisely, it means "I started out by biting my nails." Your version would be "Empecé a comerme las uñas."

Very clever guess, though, Shrek (about Venus).

Al fin solos means "Alone at last," and it has been the name of movies, songs, etc. Nobody comes to mind right now.

That´s funny. I think I finally sorted it all out. It's pretty fun. I can post a link to the whole thing if anybody wants it.

Any enlightenment on what yo empece comiendome las unas actually means. It seems like a weird construction. My guess for al fin solos would be el llanero solitario probably. Thanks for the help though

Ok for "yo empece comiendome las uñas" my guess is "La Venus de MIlo"
I have no idea for "al fin solos"
