At the end of a telephone conversation Paul thanks Mr. Berman for help in discharging Holly from prison. Berman says just one word: "Right!".
What does he mean by that?

Interesting, dictionaries say nothing about such a meaning of 'right'. Is that some out-dated usage? Or maybe regional?
I once thanked an American gentleman for holding a door open for me. He said 'Certainly'.
That's not in dictionaries, either.
People sometimes like to find alternatives for clichéed expressions like 'You're welcome'.
