    I need help

    I'm writing a novel and need help. What's correct:

    1) "Yeah, baby, I like you, too."

    2) "Yeah baby, I like you, too."

    Baby here means a grown girl or a woman, not an infant.

    Re: I need help

    Thank you (noted). I have another question. Would it be grammatically correct to say:

    1) Angry again I decided to hurt him. (without a comma after again?)

    No, you need the comma.
