The E-ticket = the best, the ideal (I assume this expression comes from the old “E-tickets” once issued by Disneyland for its best rides. If you had an E-ticket in your hand, you had access to the best that Disneyland had to offer.)
That’s the ticket! = Congratulations! I agree 100% Wonderful! I approve!
If you get my drift. = If you understand what I am implying/saying. (This sounds very Western to me. The speaker wants to say something without being direct or impolite. Although in the examples below a second sentence clearly states what the speaker wanted to say, normally the second sentence would not be spoken.)
