OK, but most times I can just right click and there is the expression option and then other times I do not get the option when I right click? Is there some setting that is controlling that?

No, nothing controls it, expressions starts with = , in ssrs 2005 it's little bit annoying, that's not in 2008 anymore.

you could select the txt box or highlight inside it and it'll be enabled.
