I make fun of the French sometimes but “touch’e” is a cool word
it is a French word, spelled touche. It means “touch” and comes from fencing. People use it when a point has been made.
American Heritage Dictionary
tou·ché (tōō-shā’) interj. Used to acknowledge a hit in fencing or a successful criticism or an effective point in argument.
[French, from past participle of toucher, to hit or wound in fencing, from Old French touchier, to touch; see touch.]
TOUCHE (or too-shay) is French for “to touch.” In the sport of fencing, it indicates a hit or touch. Or, it is an expression of acknowledgment to a telling remark , or a reply.
For instance, if someone says something you highly agree with, just respond, “Touche!”
It pretty much means ‘You got me there buddy’ you are right and I know it. MJ23 says it better.

“touché” — kinda like a cosmopolitan way to say “back atcha”
