On agreeing to disagree

What do you say to people who say, “we’ll just have to agree to disagree?”

Response #1 (The High Road): “‘We’ll just have to agree to disagree’ is a thought terminating cliché that implies your argument is on equal footing as mine. It’s not, and if you aren’t willing to defend your position any further, then we’ll just have to agree you’ve conceded the point.”

Response #2 (The Middle Road): “We’ll just have to agree you’re wrong, so go sit in the corner and be wrong in your wrongness.”

Response #3 (The Low Road): “Agree to go fuck yourself.”
