What is the grammar behind such phrases as:

See you later.
Talk to you later.

Are they just contractions with some words omitted?

[I will/shall/'m going to] see you later.

Or is it the subjunctive?


You are correct, it's kind of obscured when you read it but there is an implied "I" or "I'll". When an individual says: See you later they probably mean I'll see you later.
