A
  • Hey, what's up?
  • Not much. Just watching TV. How about you?
  • Same old. What are you doing tonight?
  • Nothing really. Why?
  • Wanna go to the movies?
  • Sure. What time?
  • The show starts at 7:15. I can pick you up at 6:30, if you want.
  • Sounds great! See you then!
  • OK. See you!
 
B
  • Hey, it's me!
  • Hey, long time no talk! What's new!
  • Not much. Just thought it's been awhile. Wanna get together? Grab a coffee, catch up on things...
  • Sure! Although I can't tonight. Have plans. But how about tomorrow?
  • Tomorrow I'm going to a hockey game. I'm free Monday night though.
  • Monday works for me!
  • Cool! Our usual spot, 7 o'clock?
  • Sure!
  • OK, I'll see you there on Monday at 7 then!
  • Perfect. See you then!
  • Alright!
Comments & Explanation:   
  1. This is a very informal chat. You won't be talking to your boss like that.
  2. Wanna = 'Want to' - an informal and very popular formula. 'Wanna go to the movies?'  = 'Do you want to go to the movies?'
  3. Grab a coffee = have a coffee (разг. форма)
  4. Catch up on things. Catch up - означает догонять. В данном контексте это значит встретиться и обменяться последними  новостями; как бы "догнать" друг друга в смысле информации, о том, что происходит в жизни каждой из сторон.
