The third is "I'm go off.", "I must be going."
Both mean "I have to go soon".

Also, when using "I'm go off.", It is common to add phrases such as "Anyway," and "Right then," to the beginning of the sentence.

The second is "It was nice to see you (again)."
The literal translation is "(again) I'm glad to see you."
When meeting and greeting someone, the phrase "It is nice to see you (again).", That is, "I'm glad to see you again" is often used.
"It was nice to see you (again)." Is a companion expression to this phrase, and the tense is in the past tense when saying goodbye.

The third is "Until we meet again."
Translated into Japanese, it means "until the day we meet again" and "be fine".
You can use this phrase in either case, even if you don't know when you'll meet next time, but if you know it.
If you know when you will meet next time, it is common practice to add the date of the next meeting after "Until" such as "Until next month."
