Question
A: Itís kind of cool we both have jobs.
B: Totally.

- Dear Sally! This is a short context from an American movie. What does "totally" mean in this context?

Thanks very much, Sally!

Answer
hi, Steven,

In this context, "Totally" is slang and an abbreviated way to say: "I totally [completely] agree with you on what you just said and the emotions you're expressing as well."

I hope that helps!

Best to you, and please rate my response.
