Lex Luthor: Miss Teschmacher, when I was six years old, my father said to me—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). Often followed by, "And stay out!" 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. Sometimes, however, a character will not give in to the ultimatum, sometimes taking the demand, insults, and the thrown objects as a declaration of war, a situation which can cause the demand and aggressive behavior to backfire in a pretty scary way. These situations serve to remind the viewer that magic words that get slung around in fiction don't always work. And there's a couple comedic variants. In one, the scene happens as normal until the person realizes "hey, wait a minute, I just got thrown out of my own house"; in another, they keep tripping over stuff and their reply to "GET OUT!" is "I'm trying! I'm trying!". A final variant is the Literal Genie version, where a literal-minded person or a passive-aggressive person will interpret "GET OUT!" as "leave the area entirely", not "give me time to cool down", and if uttered, "I never want to see you again" will mean that the person won't be coming back, ever, unless, that is, they can convince them that they changed their mind. If this is a cartoon, expect them to be given the boot whether they were going to leave on their own or not, kicked far away from the place. 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 or window, or off the roof, while uttering some form of this, usually followed by "and don't come back!" Alternatively, someone commandeering or forcibly taking over a building or vehicle may say this to defeated defenders or frightened bystanders. It can also be a Moment of Awesome when used on someone discovered to be the mole, usually an employee or an ex-lover. Can be Nightmare Fuel if delivered by an omnipotent voice in a giant maze. It's also a classic line used by sentient Haunted Houses. And old Aztec temples. 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. Or both. 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. And there's also the more panicked variety when someone is about to come in who isn't supposed to see you, in which case, expect to be stuffed in closets, bathrooms, refrigerators, you name it, with an eventual response being that they've shoved them everywhere but through the exit door. It's also a very common Lame Pun Reaction. Bonus points if the maker of the pun actually gets up and leaves. Not to be confused with the expression of disbelief — saying, "No... get out! That's unbelievable!" There may be some House Amnesia, if the person who is supposed to leave actually owns the place they are leaving. If you are putting an example on a Stock Phrases page like this, please give context. If you're looking for the 2017 movie, see here.

Spike: So we had a fight. It's not our first, love, and it doesn't change anything—
- In "Crush," Buffy gives this to Spike upon discovering his obsession with her.

Giles: Please leave my home now.

Sahjhan: Or what? You can't kill me.
Holtz: But I can trap your dimensional essence in a Resikhian Urn. Wonderful devices the urns. They last a lifetime. That is, if you live forever.
Angel: Now take your new boyfriend and get out of my house.
- Angel tells Connor and Cordy this after seeing them having sex.
Wesley: You know that sinking feeling you sometimes get the morning after? It arrived early.

- Wesley after he starts Shagging Catwoman, specifically Amoral Attorney Lilah Morgan.
Lilah: (stretching) It's like a little death. Several, in fact.
Wesley: Get out.
Lilah: What? No sweet kiss? No 'When can I see you again?' (Death Glare from Wesley) Watch the dirty looks. That's what got me going in the first place. I'll give you this - you sure know how to channel your rage, frustration, and hate. Always a bigger turn on than love.
Angel: That's great. It's nice. You moved on. I can't. You found someone new. I'm not allowed to, remember? I see you again, it cuts me up inside, and the person I share that with is me. You don't know me anymore, so don't come down here with your great new life and expect me to do things your way! Go home.

- Family Matters: A form of this — "Steve, go home!" — is delivered to Urkel virtually Once per Episode. This Running Gag was formulatic: Urkel would be annoying one of the Winslows, the Winslow would say, "Go home, Steve," Urkel would continue on unabated, another "Go home, Steve!" would follow in a more irritated voice, Urkel would continue, and then a "Go home, go home, go home!" Urkel would then say, "I don't have to take this! I'm going home!" One time, in Season 3's "Words Hurt", Carl was so angry at Urkel (for causing him to ruin his ship-in-a-bottle that he had worked months on) that he kicked him out of the house — albeit in a cruelly angry way — and banished him from the house.
- Frasier. Frasier is prone to outbursts of this when another character Deadpan Snarks after he suffers an Epic Fail.
(Frasier has been humiliated by radio pranksters - AGAIN - this time while in the bathtub.)
Niles: Now, now, it won't get you down for long. You've always had a thick skin. (giggles) Unless that Tahitian Vanilla softened you up a bit...
Frasier: GET OUT!
Frasier: How dare you presume to know the workings of my heart? You can't understand the kind of feelings that Julia and I have for one another! You may as well ask me to describe the essence of music or the, the color of starlight!
- There was another episode where Frasier opened the door to his apartment to see Eddie the dog dressed as one of Santa's elves, which would prove to his girlfriend's mother that he wasn't Jewish (It Makes Sense in Context). Frasier roars "GET OUT!", sending Eddie running, and then turns to the baffled mother and genially says, "...of that coat already!"
- He pulls off a magnificent triple in "A man, A Plan and a Gal: Julia", in which Frasier has been defending Julia because of his desire to stay committed. Then she mocks his new Italian hand towels.
Julia: Nice towels, Frasier. You'd think a couple of old ladies lived here.
Frasier: Get out.
Julia: Excuse me?
Frasier: I said get out!
Julia: I can't believe this! You're actually kicking me out?

- In the Get Some In! episode "Exam Results", Drill Sergeant Nasty Corporal Marsh has been put on a charge for cheating on a nursing exam. He initially tries to persuade Squadron Leader Baker that the Flight Sergeant who put him on the charge was motivated by racial prejudice (Marsh is clearly white, but tries claiming that the tight curls in his hair are where his Afro-Caribbean ancestry comes out). When Baker finally bellows this line, it signals the beginning of Laser-Guided Karma striking Marsh for his constant bullying of the aircraftmen under his command over the previous four series.
Baker: This is utterly ridiculous! You have failed, you are a ward orderly!
Marsh: Yes sir, very well sir. (smiles) But you're not gonna keep me on that charge for cheating, are you, sir?
Baker: Of course I damn well am! Now get out of here before I put you on another charge for, for, for lying!
Marsh: (starting to panic) Er, I would like to apply for a transfer to the King's African Rifles, sir!

When they get into a fight with the Mertzes about the drum playing, Ricky yells at them to get out along with the rhythm:
Ricky: Out! Out! OUT, OUT, OUT!

"But tonight, we begin with this message to the Super Bowl organizing committee, the Denver Broncos, the Seattle Seahawks, the media, the league and team officials, the visitors, and even the passersby, on behalf of the citizens of New Jersey and greater New York, expressed in the context of the conclusion of the annual Media Day fiasco, expressed by a native and 40-year citizen of this city. And the message is this: Get Out. Take the game, and the tents in Times Square, and the disrupted traffic patterns, and the thirteen blocks of cordoned-off streets, and Marshawn Lynch and Radio Row, and Get Out.

Niles: (stands up and points to the door) GET OUT, OLD WOMAN!
