Is it a fixed expression? What does it mean?

I haven't seen this expression before. Perhaps you mean "perish the notion" or more commonly "perish the thought". This means something is such a negative idea that you should not even think about it.

- What if I lose my job?
- Perish the notion that that should happen!
