In Greek: sas parakalo or se parakalo. (Sas) is more formal and can be used when speaking to multiple people.  


Se parakalo is more simple and direct to a single person.

Now that I am out of my turkey coma, I found this site sometime back. They actually have a list of phrases, and the word in different languages. Here's the one for "Thank you":

And just in case you ever need this phrase, "My hovercraft is full of eels" is also available:
