Rejoinder; a French expression meaning "Just as well."

For extra emphasis, you can preface the phrase with "mais" (which means "but").

Considering the reputation of France in the US right now, best used only at cocktails where white wine and brie are served.
A: "He only won the silver in Turin."
B: "Mais quand meme."
