Hello. I'd like to know if there's any difference between:

1) Best I can do is have you accompany us.
2) The best I can do is have you accompany us.

I think both mean the same. Maybe the first is more common, but I'm not sure about any of this. So, I'd be glad if you could help me.
Thanks in advance, guys!

    Remember, in common everyday speech things get dropped out of sentences. This is a simple case of "the" getting left off because it isn't entirely necessary.
