    Unless he is encouraging you to take your clothes off with him, it would definately be "bear with me"!!

    This has the meaning of "stay with me on this", "this may take a while to explain - so please be patient", "it may seem that this make no sense, but if you wait it will become clear".

    Hope that helps
