    Default I really need your help

    Dear teachers,
    When I posed the following questions about a week ago, unfortunately I didn't get any response, but I really need your help on these matters.
    So please let me repost it again. This time I sincerely hope to get answers. Thank you.
    *************************
    As conversational phrases, please pick the one(s) from the following that is/are more acceptable? Or more commonly used, or less strange?

    When agreeing with someone or sharing the similar feeling:
    I(We) buy that.
    I'll(We'll) buy that.
    (Baybe the 1st one?)

    That's what I(we) say.
    That's what I(we) would say.
    (maybe both?)

    When reaching an agreement:
    It's a deal.
    You got a deal.
    You've got a deal.
    You got yourself a deal.
    You've got yourself a deal.
    We got a deal.
    We've got a deal.
    We got ourselves a deal.
    We've got ourselves a deal.
    (maybe all? or only the ones with 've'?)

    When giving someone(s) your blessing:
    You have my blessing.
    You have my blessings.
    You have our blessing.
    You have our blessings.
    (maybe 'You have my blessing.' & 'You have our blessings.'?)

    When saying that you have nothing to argue:
    I have no objection.
    I have no objections.
    (maybe the 1st one?)

    When saying that you have an issue or some issues to argue:
    I have an objection.
    I have objections.
    We have an objection.
    We have objections.
    (maybe all?)

    When saying that it is possible for you to agree:
    I can agree with you.
    I could agree with you.
    (maybe both?)

    When saying that it's not possible for you to agree:
    I can't agree with you.
    I couldn't agree with you. (not as a paste-tense sentence)
    (Maybe only the 1st one? 2nd one looks like saying about the past)

    Thank you so much.
