    Re: Bring me back VS. bring it back to me

    - "Was escaped" is incorrect. Change it to "escaped from."
    - Change "Marry" to "Mary."
    - "Bring her back to me" is OK.
    - I don't understand what "Tom, you should bring me back" has got to do with Mary.

    Re: Bring me back VS. bring it back to me

    I appreciate your replying, teechar
    I changed it now...
    Mary escaped from the prison. Tom, you should bring her back to me. I want Mary alive.

    Is it correct now?

    Re: Bring me back VS. bring it back to me

    Although not ungrammatical, you don't need "the" before "prison" unless you really want to specify which prison. We normally just say "escaped from prison".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
