A: Why was Toby fired?
B: The boss asked him to be more punctual but he talked back to him / he answered him back.
A: Will you talk to the boss about my salary?
B: No, I won't. If you are not happy with your salary, step into his room and say it right to his face.
A: You know Mr.Brown, I can't make ends meet with my present salary.
B: In other words, you want a pay raise.
A: You think I'm doing a foolish thing but I'm still determined to quit.
B: Mark my words. You will soon regret leaving this company.

B: Don’t waste your breath. She won't take your advice.
A: Did you enjoy your conversation with Mr.Williams?

B: Yeah. She has a big mouth.
A: I want to tell you something but it's only between you and me.
B: Don’t worry. I won't breathe a word of it to anyone.
A: I'm not prepared to speak in front of so many people.
B: It doesn’t matter. You can speak off the cuff pretty well.
A: Professor Smith is very knowledgeable.
