    "Quentin Tarantino, who, with Roger Avary, wrote ..."

    The person who brought the phrase 'get medieval' to the public's attention is Quentin Tarantino, who, with Roger Avary, wrote the screenplay to the 1994 film Pulp Fiction. In the film, the character Marsellus Wallace swears revenge on an attacker:
    I ain't through with you by a damn sight. I'm gonna git Medieval on your ass.
    Would you wrong me if I wrote "Quentin Tarantino, with Roger Avary, wrote ...?" who, is excluded.

    In the original sentence, the 'who' is necessary.

    I would say you were wrong, I wouldn't wrong you. That would mean that I did you an injustice.
