On The Same Page

"I don't think we are on the same page"

お前と俺では意見が合わないな。(映画「宇宙戦争」より)

On The Same Page ( different people are looking at an issue in the same way, as when reading from the same page ... )
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In business meetings and college classes people often make copies of a single report and hand a copy to each person at the meeting. While they discuss the different points in the report, each person needs to be reading from the same page ("on the same page"). Everyone is "on the same page" when they are all following along and understanding the basic idea that the group is sharing. "On the same page" has a further meaning of people being in basic understanding and agreement on something. Example: "Before we make any decisions today, I'd like to make sure that everyone is on the same page." People are "on the same page" when they look at a problem or a situation in the same way and agree on a course of action. Example: "Each of us has been busy with his own projects lately, so I called this meeting today to bring us all together on the same page."
