    Don't tell me that there's only "אל תגיד לי ש"...

    תודה מראש

    This is the only option I can think of. Don't tell me that you're moving to New York - אל תגיד לי שאתה עובר לניו יורק. Maybe if you find some synonyms in English, we can translate them.

    That's basically all I can think of. Unless you want to add something to it, like "are you serious?" "אתה רציני?" or "are you joking?" "אתה צוחק?" or "are you working one over on me?" "אתה עובד עליי?"

    I guess such way of talking exists also in English: the speaker doesn't really doubt, but pretend to doubt..
    Don't tell me that you're moving to New York = I guess its true but it is so surprising that I will act as if I don't believe and let you "convience" me you are serious..
