    I ask a friend if she's busy, she says fortunately, I reply with:

    I ask a friend if she's busy, she says fortunately, I reply with:

    Meaning, being busy is a good thing then?

    Or

    Meaning - being busy is a good thing then?

    Or

    Meaning: being busy is a good thing then?

    Are all three okay?

    If you said it, they'd all sound the same.

    In writing, I'd use no punctuation after 'meaning'.

    'Meaning "being busy" is a good thing, then?'

    Note: In writing: '...she says "Fortunately"'.
