Could you tell me if there is any difference in meaning between brings something and bring something by? In the 24th episode of the 8th season of The Office, Dwight used bring by, which was the first time I hear the phrasal verb used. Here is the context:
Dwight: Hey everybody, just a few hours left for the free family portrait studio. Darryl. We’d love to see little Jada come by. Angela? Why don’t you bring by your little angel?
Would the meaning of the sentence change if Dwight just used bring?
