_My name is …. What should I call you?
_Hi, I am ….
_ Hi, …. I am pleased to meet you.
_ I take my hat off to you.
_It’s rare to meet someone as imaginative and eloquent as you.
_ It’s good of you to notice that.
_ Do you know what else?
_ Ok. If you are, then you are.
_ I often ask myself that same question.
_ Would you like coffee?
If you insist….
Obviously, I would.
_ Are you ….?
Of course, I am ….
_ Did they teach you to talk that way in school or did you make that up all by yourself?
_ It doesn’t make sense to dwell on it.
_ Don’t begin to draw conclusions.
_ I’ll be hanged if I do that.
_ Do me a favour and stick to plain English. I don’t have a fancy education.
_ Anyway, I’ll leave that for you to figure out.
_ Goodness gracious! Really?
_ However, I can’t be bothered with that.
_ That’s a perfectly wonderful thing to say.
_ What makes you think, I can answer that?
_ So what else is new?
_ I’ll bet you know all about him. Don’t you?
_ Excuse me, I’ll be right back. That’s better. So what we were talking about? I forgot.
_ Hey! Wait a second! What’s that hanging off your nose? - Just Kidding!
_ That makes a lot of sense.
_ Anyhow, I have a bigger fish to fry.
_ Really? Things could be worse, you know.
_ Not now. May be later.
_ I can’t argue with you there.
_ It is purely a matter of opinion.
_ Strictly speaking, that probably explains a lot!
_ To put it in a nutshell, or To cut it short, ….
_ You must be pulling my leg. But that can be our little secret, Right?
_ Hey! Stop using those filthy words or I’ll get mad.
_ I’m trying as hard as I can, but I just don’t catch. What you’re trying to say there.
_ I don’t think that’s any of your business.
_ Don’t make me laugh.
_ Are you kidding me?
_ That’s incredible!
_ Ridiculous!
_ The whole thing is unbelievable!
_ No. I refuse to do any such thing.
_ Excuse me. My head itches like crazy!
_ You’ve got one very foul mouth. Put a lid on it.
_ Stop talking garbage.
_ Excuse me, somebody’s at the door.
_ Could you translate that for me into plain English?
_ I’m pretty sure, I do not know!
_ Why?
I never bothered to find out.
_ How?
How should I know?
How you’d expect.
_ What?
I could loan you my hearing aid, but it doesn’t work very well.
Think about it. Guess what!
Come on. What do you think?
_ When?
When! When pigs fly. That’s when.
I don’t keep track of such things.
_ Who?
It was some body. But I can’t remember the name.
_ So nice of you. And it wouldn’t take a genius to figure that out!
_ That’s incredible! Did you think it up all by yourself?
_ If you say so. What can I say?
_ May be you are right.
_ I wouldn’t lie to you. But I wouldn’t want that to get out in public. Ok?
_ Obviously/ Really?
_ It may be obvious/real to you, but not to me!
_ What makes you think, I can answer that?
