->''"So, why don't you make like a tree and get outta here?"''
-->-- '''Biff Tannen''', ''Film/BackToTheFuture''

The good guys have just activated the self-destruct on the BigBad's KillSat or carefully laid a time bomb in the center of the ElaborateUndergroundBase. Or maybe they have advance warning for a natural disaster... Whatever the reason, it's time to beat a hasty retreat!

According to an official TabletopGame/TrivialPursuit question, this is the second most often used StockPhrase in movies, right after "I love you."

Someone has edited together a montage of the abuses of this trope covering many of the film and live action TV examples: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taZwviU0sy0 "Let's Get Out of Here!"]]

[[folder: Film]]
* ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''
* TheMovie of ''Film/JamesAndTheGiantPeach''.
* One of the most memorable scenes in ''Film/TheGoonies''. "Let's--" "get--" "out--" "of here!" "Like, NOW!"
* ''Film/{{Alien}}'' Several times throughout the film:
** Lambert says these words after seeing the derelict space ship, before the alien infestation even begins. They probably should have listened to her.
** Lambert also yells it at Dallas when she sees the alien closing in on him on the motion tracker screen. It only serves to make him panic and run right into the alien's open arms.
** Lambert again (it's kind of a theme for her) after Dallas' death. Ripley has to remind her that the shuttle can't take all four of them.
** And in [[Film/{{Aliens}} the sequel]], Hicks yells out during the evacuation to Drake, who is hanging back, that they are ''leaving''. [[ScareChord It]] [[TakingYouWithMe doesn't]] [[HollywoodAcid end]] [[ImMelting well]].
** And "I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit" does involve getting out of here first.
* ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' - Han Solo realizes that the "cave" in the asteroid in which they sought refuge was actually a giant space slug.
* ''Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest'': Will Turner sees Jack come running out of the jungle.... [[ChasedByAngryNatives pursued by a horde of angry cannibals.]]
* Gwen from ''Film/GalaxyQuest'', upon discovering a horde of cannibalistic aliens: "Let's get out of here before one of those things [[RedShirt kills Guy!]]"

[[folder: Literature]]
* Used at least twice in ''Literature/TheTomorrowSeries'', each time followed by Lee (or Ellie) pointing out that it's a very commonly used movie line.
* Sort of invoked by Lt. Blouse in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'', after they used the enemy's portable clacks to send a false intel report.
--> '''Blouse:''' "Now we leave as quickly as possible. I believe the phrase is, 'Let us get the heck out of here.'"
--> '''Polly:''' "Close, sir. Quite close."
* ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'': In the story "Labyrinth", after cooking Baron Ryoval's gene banks:
-->"Now," [Miles] said to Taura, who was still meditating on the dial, and her hand, with her gold eyes glowing, "we have to get out of here. Now we ''really'' have to get out of here." Lest her next tactics lesson turn out to be, Don't blow up the bridge you're standing on, Miles allowed nervously.

[[folder: Live Action TV]]
* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' - Captain Kirk said "Let's get the hell out of here" (which for broadcast TV in those days was almost a PrecisionFStrike) at the end of "The City on the Edge of Forever" after saving the entire natural timeline and future at the cost of letting Edith Keeler die.
** This actually comes up quite often over the course of the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' franchise. Generally in the form of ordering a course setting and saying "Maximum Warp, Engage!". On one occasion, [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Captain Picard]] simply ordered the ship to warp on ''any'' course, when trying to escape from a NegativeSpaceWedgie.
* ''Series/{{MASH}}'': When Trapper and Hawkeye realize they've cut the wrong wire in an unexploded bomb.
* The cast of ''Series/RedDwarf'' were asked, "What does "[[UnusualEuphemism smeg]]" mean?" by a young boy at an event where they were fielding questions from the audience. After a bit of throat-clearing, Robert Llewellyn looked at Craig Charles. Craig looked at Robert. ...and both got on their hands and knees, crawled behind their chairs and out behind the stage curtain, Robert glancing back to 'check' if anyone was following.

[[folder: Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' - Garrus Vakarian "needing some distance from this place" after seeking revenge against Sidonis on the Citadel.
** Also Shepard's "I've had enough of this colony" after getting chewed out by Kaidan/Ashley on Horizon.
* The entire sinking tanker escape scene of the second ''[[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare]]'' mission, "Crew Expendable", is nothing but this trope and ContinueYourMissionDammit.
--> ''Captain Price:'' On your feet, soldier! [[PunctuatedForEmphasis We are LEAVING!!]]
* The first level of ''VideoGame/MetalWolfChaos'', where you fight your out of the White House take off in UsefulNotes/AirForceOne [[CrazyAwesome through the]] [[RuleOfCool Washington Monument reflection pool]] and fly away.
* Hostages you rescue in ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'' also say this line after you get to them.

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* Practically OnceAnEpisode on ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''.
* Used on ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' whenever someone gets injured and, rather than do the courageous thing and help the victim, the other characters run and leave him (or her) for dead. Was used in a non–injury-related scene on "New Kid on the Block," where after Kearney (who's with fellow bully Dolph) hits on Laura with "Hey, baby, how 'bout puttin' your finger in my ear!", Laura snaps back, "Well, I dunno. Your boyfriend looks like the jealous type." Kearney and Dolph are so shocked by the comeback, they shout, "Let's get outta here!"
* Creator/WilliamShatner uses the line again in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "Where No Fan Has Gone Before", after Fry reminds the Original Series cast that the paradise they just left required them spending eternity with the universe's biggest Trekkie.
* Several classmates from ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'' [[SpeakInUnison say it in unison]] as blood-borne bacteria multiply in front of them. ([[IncredibleShrinkingMan Yes, they are in the blood, too.]])
* In ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}} in Paradise'', Jon says it rather quietly at the sight of mean-looking islanders, but TheAllegedCar won't start. Fortunately for him and his pets, they're a CargoCult and worship the car.
* In ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer'', after the rescue from the snow monster's cave.
-->'''Yukon Cornelius''': Let's get out of here!
* This line is uttered twice in ''WesternAnimation/TheLittleRascals'' episode "Yachtsa' Luck": first by Wheelhouse Willie after he and his henchman, Slats, rob the treasure chest on Waldo's yacht, and then by Alfalfa and Spanky when they're afraid of Waldo blaming them for the theft.
* During the "Pooh Moon" episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheNewAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'', Rabbit suggests a strategic retreat from an (imagined) danger.
-->'''Rabbit''': P-perhaps we should retreat and think this over...
-->'''Tigger''': [[DistinctionWithoutADifference Never mind the retreat, let's get out of here!!]]
