Should I write “repartee” with an accent?

Does repartee need an accent with it in writing? Also, what does it mean?

Edit: Can you please provide an example sentence or two? I’d really appreciate it!

Answer

Repartee is “conversation marked by a series of witty retorts” (wiktionary).

The word is spelled with no accents. It is apparently from the French repartie (with no accent).
