Get Out YKTTW Discussion
A Stock Phrase delivered if one character has really pissed another character off. He or she may just mean out of the room, but may even mean "Get out of my house" or there may even be an implied "I never want to see you again." (speaking of stock phrases.) Any attempts to reason with the character who has made this demand will simply get them to restate it, more forcefully and usually shouting, or while on the brink of tears. Oh, and expect a few insults (or possibly items of furniture) to be thrown if the target of the ultimatum is stubborn or has really blown it. Usually a line spoken by a very angry Love Interest, pissed off friends and allies have been known to use it as well. Also used from time to time by a really pissed off character who is on the defensive and has just put an intruder on the bad side of a beat down. Cue them throwing the opponent out the nearest door, window or off the roof while uttering some form of this, usually followed by "and don't come back!" A case of a Naked First Impression or other scene where one character walks in on another in a state of undress may trigger this as well. Either that or a Megaton Punch. Its also an expression of disbelief. Ever heard someone say "No... get out! Thats unbelievable!" or something to that effect? Occasionally, characters are a bit more polite about it, choosing to deliver the trope as a question. "Will you get OUT of here? Please?" This is not a request, but a demand, and continued refusal to leave will lead to the original stock phrase being used. Examples Fairy Tales
