Without further ado, let's dive right in!

Answering Terima Kasih

There are a few answers to this. First, you can answer it by saying,
Terima kasih kembali.
You can hear how to pronounce this sentence in the video below.

This one is rather formal, and you rarely hear this in everyday conversation.

You can also answer with this,
Kembali kasih.
And this one is very rare. But you can say this to impress your Indonesian friends. This phrase in meaning is wonderful because terima means that you are receiving, and kasih means love. So in the literal meaning, terima kasih means I'm receiving the love you gave to me.

And kembali kasih means I'm giving back the love that you gave to me, so it's a term that rarely been used in everyday conversation, but you can use it, and it has good meaning.

And this is how you pronounce "kembali kasih."

The next one is the one that is very commonly used in everyday conversation. That is,
You can hear how to pronounce this in the video below.

The scene from the movie that we're going to watch, it is using the second one. But they add the other word in front of the phrase "sama-sama."

Let's watch this first scene down below.

You can read the conversation's transcription in this video with English translation in my article, How to Say Thank You In Indonesian.

You can see that the woman says this,
Iya, sama-sama.
There is the word "iya" before "sama-sama." Iya means yes. It means that she is receiving your thank you.

Now, let's watch the second scene. Also, from the same movie, Mimpi Metropolitan, you can also read the transcript of the conversation in the article that I've just given you the link. Or you can just CLICK HERE.

Let's watch the scene.

Here, the waiter is adding the word "oke" before the word "sama-sama."
Oke, sama-sama.
Oke is okay. Again, it's just showing that the waiter is receiving that you thank him.

Now, let's watch the third scene.

And below is the conversation in that scene with English translation.
A: Tuh, siapa tuh? (Who is that?) 
B: Hai. (Hi.) 
A: Huh, males! (Huh, I don’t like this!) 
B: Ini tadi aku bikin puding buah, buat mba Angel dan mas Adi. Mari dicoba. (I made fruit pudding, for you Angel and Adi. Please try it.) 
C: Tuh! Makasih ya. (Thank you.)
B: Iya. Sama-sama. (You’re welcome.) 
C: Masukin kulkas dulu ya. (I’ll put this in the refrigerator first.) 
B: Iya. (Okay.)
