I don't care
I don't give a damn
I have no idea
(I) Havent (got) a clue
I wish I knew
It doesn't make sense
It doesn't matter
It doesn't prove a thing
It's a waste of time
It's all the same to me
It's none of your business
It's out of the question
Let's drop this subject
Mind your own business
That's not the point

So what? ?
What are you driving at? ?
What (the hell) are you talking about? ?!
What for? ?
What of it? ?
Who cares? ?
Why on earth ...? ... ?

I dont know him a great deal. .
I dont see eye to eye with him. - ( ).
I dont see much of him. .
I ran hell for leather. .
In the end things will even out. .
Ive had my fill. .
I was all ears. .
I wish I could turn it around. .
I wont rat on you. .
I would rather not (do something) = I'd rather not ( -)
if your hunch turns out to be right
It goes over my head. .
it goes without saying
It really took a load off. !
Its easy on the pocket. .
its raining cats and dogs
it is about time we leave
it is not my cup of tea ( , )
it is not too much of a bother
it seems to be on the cards
It was one hell of a day. !
it wont keep you very long
Keep things to yourself. .
to kick the bucket ()
kinky stuff
Lets face it. ( ).
Lets quit when the going is still good. , .
Lets start afresh. .
loads of something -
a lovely-dovey person ,
a man of action
a man-eater
to make up for lost time
My contacts have all gone cold. .
a nine days wonder
a peppy girl ,
to place more value on something -
The project is in cold storage. .
round the clock ,
seed money
Scotch flowed freely like water. .
The day began on the wrong foot. .
to see through someone - , -
someones blue-eyed boy -
Take your pick. .
to take ones breath away (, )
to talks through ones hat
that settles the issue
There is light at the end of the tunnel. .
They took him to the cleaners. .
things were at sixes and sevens
This bugs me no end. .
This calls for some celebration. .
to top it all / to crown it all
You are slow to catch on. .
you can count on my support
You have been taken for a ride. ().
you have done nothing out of turn
Your eyes will pop out. .
We will go Dutch. .
within a matter of months
Would you like a peg or two? ?
