What do you say when someone knocks on the door at a public place that doesn't sound awkward?

Like in a single bathroom, or a fitting room in a store?

Generally I just say something like "sorry, someone's in here". I mean it's going to be somewhat awkward no matter what, so there's no real reason to make a big deal out of it.

How about "one minute" or "be right out"

I say "Just a minute." Kind of on a singing, happy voice.

That'll probably be fine for the bathroom.

I usually say "I'll be out in a minute" or, "Someone is in here." It isn't a big deal.
