Dialogue:

Dwight: Oh hey, I've been to the amusement park that you referred to me last week. It was amazing!

Jim: You tell!

What does the response 'You tell!' means? The connotations of course.

  • @Tᴚoɯɐuo, is something wrong with the transcription? – mark42inbound Feb 28 '18 at 13:28
  • I am not familiar with the collocation You tell! for one thing, and referred to me also seemed questionable. – Tᴚoɯɐuo Feb 28 '18 at 15:53

From the context of you example conversation

You tell!

would mean

Tell me all about it!
Good for you!

A BrE speaker might use

Do tell!

  • 'Tell me all about it!' fits well. Mostly I've heard it in sitcoms. – mark42inbound Feb 28 '18 at 9:00
