    The dialogue is fine. It's Standard English. The response given by Mr Y is short for the sentence below:

    Mr Y: Don't be sorry, because I'm not sorry.

    Mr Y left out the words "sorry" and "because", and leaving them out is OK to do becuase the word "sorry" was mentioned already, and the word "because" is implied by the use of the comma ( , ).

    All the best,
