Ohya you go zai masu: Good Morning in Japanese

In this conversion, Tomita asks Tamaki.
Do want to have a coffee? - [Co fui no mu?]

And, Tamki replied "Yes, please"- [hai i ta da ki ma su] in Japanese.

Co fui no mu is casual way of asking. So, it literally means "Want to have a coffee" rather than "Would you like to have a coffee?".
On the other hand, tamaki replied more politely, as he was asked by his boss.
Thus, his reply is "Yes, please"
