    come at you ,get to you

    A few lines from the movie《The Shawshank Redemption》:
    Anybody come at you yet?Anybody get to you yet?Hey, we all need friends in here.I could be a friend to you.
    what do "come at you" and "get to you" mean?

    Re: come at you ,get to you

    As I said, I'm not at home with this dialogue. When I saw the film I assumed 'come at you' meant 'attacked you physically' and that 'got to you' meant either 'found your weak spot' or 'made you lose your self-control'.
