    B: Me too.

    Can I say "And you?" in place of both phrases?

    Hello teacher,

    Can we say 'and you' to obtain the same meaning?

    It is very short but the result is the same.

    Have a nice day. (do not hesitate to correct me, your corrections help me to build my understanding of English).

    Yes you can. I think your English is improving by the way.
