Literal Translation: “I am trying to do whatever I can to finish this conversation as soon as possible, short of saying that I have to go, by agreeing with everything you say while looking like I am really enjoying this conversation. I also trying to make sure that I don’t say a word, so that I don’t run the risk of extending this interaction even for one extra second.”
