    Greetings,

    If John punches Fred in the head, Fred may say, “I'll get even with you!”

    Then, after Fred has punched John in the head in turn, Fred may say, “We’re even!”

    What are these two expressions in Colloquial Turkish, please?

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    PS For “We’re even!”, “We’re quits!” is also used.

    Then Fred may say: (Şimdi) ödeştik (işte).

    Many thanks - so when you threaten to get even with someone do you say "Seninle ödeşirim!"?

    I think we'd use future: Seninle ödeşeceğiz!

    We quite often use biz when we mean "you and I" or "s/he and I" even if we have already said seninle or onunla.
