    Re: You can say it again

    The exact idiom is, "You can say that again." It means, "I agree completely."

    I think "You can say it again" may imply: "OK, you're all right."
    Or, "I'm sure you're right."

    Re: You can say it again

    Does " I couldn't agree you more " mean the same thing ?

    You need to either add a with or drop the you, but these three are equivalent, to my ear:

    I couldn't agree with you more

    I couldn't agree more

    You can say that again


    Maybe You can say that again is very slightly less formal and I couldn't agree with you more is very slightly more formal, but the registers are very close.
