    Out of the blue....

    geht das nur mit "arrive" oder kann man auch sagen:

    Peter's accusations broke out of the blue.

    Irgendwas was spritzig klingt!

    The suggestions offered so far are good, but I think there is more frequently a "from" before the "out":

    ...came from out of the blue/the clear blue sky.
    ...appeared from out of the blue.

    Informally, you often hear "right" in this position:
    ...came right out of the blue.

    UK usage may be different.
