A girl asks different questions to a boy and the boy always answers "Не скажу" - "I will not say", but then, when she says "Та коли ж твоя добра ласка, то й скажеш" - "If you will be very kind to me then you will say", the boy answer to her question. "Будь ласка" have a similar meaning and action :)
