Socrates: You can't put your title on this work and claim it's yours.
Plato: Can too.
Socrates: Not.
Plato: Too.

This expression is childish or humorous, right? Is it rarely used?

Hi Francois, I used to hear "Can too" in movies, what does it exactly mean?!

Thanks!

Hi sweetheart,

'Can too' is an alternative to 'Yes, I can!', when someone says you cannot do something. This seems to be an usual preamble to some 'yes! no! yes! no!' war.

Right. :lol: It's not rare among children.

A: (Yes, I) can (do it) too.
B: (No, you can) not.
A: (Yes, I Can) too.
B: Mom!
