    I'll go with you!

    My son is going to the movies. And I jokingly say:

    I'll go with you!

    VS

    I'll come with you!

    Are both okay here?

    I am not a teacher.

    Now you know that there isn't.

    Your post #3 is not a question, by the way.

    Come and go, though opposite in meaning,can be used in the same sentence in some contexts.

    BTW, I can't see the need for the exclamation mark at the end.

    Most sons don't want their dads to go to the movies with them. They'd be embarrassed.

    So, he jokingly exclaims that he would love to go with him!

    Batman, you have been told before that there is no need to write a new post to say Thank you or to quote our replies back to us. Simply click the Thank button on any posts you find helpful. It means that we don't have to open the thread again to read your new post and then find that it doesn't include any new information or an additional question.

    It saves everybody's time.
