    Remarque... = Look (here) or Listen (here)
    Pas de quoi = No big thing or Don't worry about it
    Zut = Dang (it) or Darn (it) or Drat (it)
    La paix = Hush up or Lemme alone
    La ferme = Zip it or Shut up
    Tu parles! = Whatever or Get out of here
    Alors = So (what)


    I'd love to know if there is an equivalent for "Bite me".

    Je ne sais pas si mes traductions seront correctes, mais j'essayerai
    errr or erm = ben?? (on hésite)
    you know/ y'know = tu sais??
    oh my god = oh mon dieu
    like = sais pas, ce mot est utilisé partout dans leurs diologues, les jeunes
    e.g. it was, like, an amazing trip. le mot ne veux dire rien. c'est juste là.
    Voila, mes efforts!

    wow/ ouah that's really good tresley! do you know if there's an equivalent for the filler word 'like' or is that just an american/english thing?

    like -> tu sais, souvent abbrégé en t'sais (tic de langage qui traduit d'après moi très bien à 'like' dans ce sens là) :D

    I think "quoi" would be a quasi-equivalent of "like" as used where I'm from, i.e. stuck at the end of phrases without any particular meaning... vous voyez ce que je veux dire quoi?

    Au Québec, pour like, les ados disent "comme", simplement. Enfin jusqu'à récemment...
