Troped

Get Out

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
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

  • Beauty and the Beast has the Beast screeching this at Belle when she goes into the forbidden west wing of the castle.

  • Many of Wodehouse's bossier characters, like Sir Aylmer Bostock in Uncle Dynamite (whose nephew eventually turns the books on him), Sir Raymond Bastable in Cocktail Time, and Lord Tillbury (in a lot of books) are like that.

    Caroline In The City had a shared Catch Phrase: when hearing something incredible Caroline would say "Get Out!" and her friend Annie would rejoin "I'm out!" i.e., I Am Not Making This Up. (Or vice versa). One time her empolyee Richard was having an art show at an all-gay gallery due to being Mistaken For Gay; he tells Caroline he's sold a piece for $5000, she says "Get out" and he responds "I'm out!", which causes the crowd at the gallery to applaud.

    Urrgh, forgot to categorise the examples... I'll do it gradually or when I launch the trope. I'll probably launch in 24 hours time under the Three Rules Of Three rule, I'm being told to Just Launch It Already a lot recently ':(

    As a question, "get out" is almost always in the form of "Will you get OUT of here?!"
