Thank-you, Thank you, Thanks
It doesn't sem to me that you are obliged to use a hyphen in the phrase
"thank you." It may be *permissible* in certain circumstances where the
phrase becomes an adjective connected to a noun, such as "a thank-you
note." The parallel would be the term "how to" turned into an andjective as
in a "how-to book." While it is permissible and in some circumstances
customary, I'm not clear why it would be required.
