Mensagem:  Sarinha,

Americans are very spontaneous in informal situations and yes they use the idiom "say when", so they know people have had enough of a drink or a cake they were served, or other food.

I'm from Curitiba and we do that a lot; while pouring someone else something to drink we say, "diga quando".
