For example:

No, thank you

Sure. Thanks

I'd better not. Thanks anyway.

Okay. Thank you

No, but thanks for offering

 

Would you like to go see a movie?

Okay. Sounds good.

No, I'd rather not.

  Sure, I'd love to.


I'm sorry, but I can't.


  Yeah. Good idea


No, but thanks for inviting me.

 

How about some more pie?

All right. Thanks

No, thanks

  Looks good. Thanks


I'm really full, Thanks anyway.


  Don't mind if I do.


Looks delicious, but I'll have to pass.

 

How about going skiing this weekend?

Great. What time?
