To work together on friendly terms
...also to drink together:

"Have another glass!"
"With you hob and nob" returned the sergeant.

(- Charles Dickens, Great Expectations)

merged from hob and nob ("give" and "take"),
derived from the earlier hab or nab lit. have or have not,
from OE habban to have + nabban not to have (ne not + habban), circa 1600
Stop! Murder us not, tonsured rumpots! Knife no one, fink!
