We were watching Midnight in Paris the other night, and there is a scene where F. Scott Fitzgerald asks Ernest Hemingway to come with him and leave the bar. Fitzgerald asks Hemingway to "come with." Not "come with me," just "come with."
Now, this is something I wouldn't have noticed because that's what I would say too, but Andrew immediately remarked how odd it is that Fitzgerald says "come with" because he's only ever heard Minnesotans say that. And for a split second, I almost didn't remember that F. Scott Fitzgerald is from Minnesota!
So, folks, is Woody Allen that attentive to details? Non-Minnesotans out there - do any of you also say "come with?"
p.s. a fun fact (for me at least) is that "come with" is the first thing I ever said to Andrew:
Me: I'm going to get my U card. Want to come with?
Andrew: Sure, of course, I would love to with you anywhere!! (or something along those lines...)
(He waited a few weeks to point out how odd he thinks it is that Minnesotans say "come with.")
p.p.s. Did you notice Carla Bruni is also in this film playing the tour guide at the Rodin museum?
