    Same To You

    Dear Teachers,

    A. Hey man! You’re really a crazy man.
    B. – What do you say? / what did you say? / What have you just said?
    - Which question is more natural?

    C. Have a good night! / Have fun! / Have a nice weekend!
    D. You, too. / same to you .
    - Which answer is more natural?

    Thanks

    "What did you say?" is most likely.

    The second one is probably more likely, but both are used.

    I have to disagree with Ron here. "The same to you" is correct and common.

    Re: Same To You

    I suppose.

    A: Have a good weekend.
    B: Same to you. (You have a good weekend too.)
