I dont mean the phrase "I'm coming with you" specifically, but the concept that when the main character is going on a big quest, some secondary character will want to tag along--against the main character's wishes. Sometimes this secondary character will be a love interest or potential love interest, or maybe a companion that wasnt deemed to be "important" or "can't take care of himself". Sometimes that character will do everything in their power to get on the quest too--like Sam following Frodo in the lord of the rings. Sometimes that character is sent home after they are on the quest, sometimes they die, and sometimes they save the hero's life.
