    Question Informal way of saying "revenge"...

    Hi,

    Is there any informal verb or expression (BrE) meaning "taking revenge"? I'm looking for a verb that's used for simple situation, say, used by children. Thanks in advance.

    "I'll get you back", "I got him back", these might be possible.

    Hi,
    So many thanks dear bhaisahab. I've already heard of "I'll get my own back on you!". Has it got the same usage? Thanks again.
