Yeah, none of those fixes really make sense for your situation. Honestly, I'd stay far away from Yahoo Answers for Skyrim questions - you're much better off at a more specialized site like this one. Most of the "help" you'll receive there is more or less "I took an arrow to the knee" or "create a new game."
she didnt. but i have taked to her after the quest and her dialogue options are the same. the online suggestions i tried were on sites like yahoo answers. most of the fixes they had were for PC and the only xbox ones i saw were talking to the bartender, talking to brynoff, and getting an update from xbox live. unforunatly none of those helped.
I've looked into things to fix this and this appears to be one of those problems where not much is currently known. Maybe some of our other members can be of more help than I, but I'm afraid you may be stuck waiting for a patch if reloading an older save isn't an option. Even PC users aren't able to fix this with the console; the PC "fix" is essentially to completely skip the quest, so the bug must be a serious one.
These potential solutions I'm going to give you probably won't work, but they're better than nothing and have been known to unglitch other quests.
[*]Make sure any other active quests you currently have don't involve the characters in the glitched quest. If there are any, complete them before trying to continue.
[*]Finish the Thieves Guild quest line. Although unrelated, it may trigger more dialogue options for Byrnjolf/Delphine if there was some sort of conflict.
[/list]Keep us updated and let us know if it works out or if you isolate the problem. If you have any other questions we'll be happy to help!

[*] You may have to skip forward to the start of the next quest, Alduin's Wall, by using the console and typing in setstage MQ203 5, which will allow you to continue.
[*] Use console command setstage MQ202 (stage #) to force Esbern to open the door and talk again. Stage 160 makes Esbern open the door, if bugged. Stage 170 makes Esbern talk again, if bugged. Another easier way to avoid bugs is to type in CompleteQuest MQ202, which would work for any quest value.
[/list]The UESP bug notes contain some fixes, as does the TES wiki. Note that I have personally not confirmed these, but they're worth a try if the suggestions in the above posts fail.
It's also worth noting that not all patch fixes claim to retroactively being bugged quests. Some of the patches only prevent the issue from popping up again in new games.
