So do I!  Neither do I! 

So … I and Neither … I are used when agreeing with someone's opinion.  It's usually used in the first person, but it can be used in other ways.  See the examples below.

So + auxiliary verb or do + subject

Use this form to agree with someone's positive statement.
 
Ex.:   Catherine loves bowling.  So does Karen.
          I can play the piano. So can I.
          She's going to Sydney next week.  So am I.

Neither + Auxiliary Verb or Do + Subject

Use this form like "So...I" except when agreeing with someone's negative statement.
 
Ex:     I don't like broccoli.  Neither do I. 
          She can't type very well.  Neither can he.
          We haven't seen each other in a long time.  Neither have we.
