Man: Where did you er...
Woman: Where did I get it?
Man: Yeah! That’s exactly what I was going to say....!

I go shopping whenever I'm sad or have troubles because it help me to relax and forget all damn things for a while. Buy things on Internet is comfortable but be careful with cheating.
The guy said, That’s exactly what I was going to say
Is it also correct to say? That’s exactly what I am going to say. I don't know the difference.
Hi amber 0204!
Sorry, but it's not correct to say "That's exactly what I am going to say." This is because 'was going' is for the past - he was thinking about saying it, but he's not going to say it now, because the woman already guessed his question. 'I am going to say...' would mean he still wants to say it.
Hope that helps!

it is very difficult , the guy speaks quickly
sorry to tell you that i can not see the vedio, is there a bug?
Sorry you can't see the video. Unfortunately it's the same for all our users in China (and Iran). As you know, many websites are not available in China (Facebook, YouTube, Google Documents) and our video host is one of them. We are trying to find a solution to this.
