Hello nuam7273,

'Thought so' is an abbreviated form of 'I thought so', meaning that something another person said is not a surprise for us.

Sir, could you please explain these sentences:

1) I’m SUPPOSED TO BE meeting someone.
2) Olivia: Not him, BY ANY CHANCE?

Hello amit_ck

We use 'be supposed to' to talk about our obligations, arrangements we have made, as well as our expectations about something. In this case, Johnny has made an arrangement to meet Harry and expected to find him in the café.

Olivia uses 'by any chance' to make her question more polite here.

I'd encourage you to use an online dictionary to look up phrases you don't know.

All the best

Can I use the phrase "By any chance" in below the sentence .

#Can I talk with you on Skype, by any chance? :)

Hello amit_ck,

Yes, that is perfectly fine.
