Sometimes people say "Let's just agree to disagree" as a kind of rhetorical weapon to prematurely shut down discussion that is just getting started. Is there a good reposte, or antonym expression, other than, "FU"?

What is the witty way to NOT "agree to disagree"?

Note this is not the same as this thread: Alternative to "We'll just have to agree to disagree"

It's pretty much an antonym question :)

    What @Clare said. or with a bit of humor, “unfortunately this needs to be a fight to the death.”

    The question is too broad. And primarily opinion-based. Not to mention that a riposte to such a statement is generally misguided. The point of the statement is to request that both parties stop with the rejoinders. If you need to keep riposting then you haven't gotten the message, methinks. It is difficult to productively argue with someone who does not want to argue with you. Or are you perhaps just looking for the last word? (You can tell that I do not think of such a statement as a "rhetorical weapon". I don't see it being used that way.)

    I don't think it's opinion based. I think it calls for imagination and a sense of repartee.

5) If I'm not mistaken, compromise is out of the question.

6) You must be taking the piss, right?

7) FAT CHANCE :)

8) Well, I wouldn't want to be betting the family silver on this.

[sigh] can't think of any more of 'em.
