    Default all right = happy

    LDCE gives the following sample sentences:
    You passed? All right! - AmE
    I wonder which:
    1. One person is saying both sentences:
    "You passed? I'm happy to hear it."
    2. The first is a question and the second
    an answer by the other person:
    "You passed?" "Yes, I'm happy."
    Thank you.

    Default Re: all right = happy

    I imagine it goes as follows:
    "I passed."
    "You passed? All right!"
