    get comfort you /to you?

    Hi

    When I was a little girl I saw a movie , "Cat Balou" [ I`m not sure about the exact spelling of the title]and I remember a sentence which I have never seen in written form, something like : "I`ve come to get comfort you !" Should it be :"I`ve come to get comfort to you"?
    Thank you very much

    Mmm... I guess that what you probably heard was something like "I've come to comfort you" or "I've come to give comfort to you". I'm not sure about "I've come to get comfort to you"; it's grammatically right, but I think it's not used.


    greetings,

    Adrian.

    Hi

    Well, you might be right. I don`t remember the exact words and I am sometimes confused [ even now after so many years of studying English] when I have to reproduce words uttered by an English native.

    Thank you
    Keep in touch.
