Does the phrase "get out" always need to be rude? Could we use it for a friend or a person we should be respectful to?

    You can use it with a friend if it's clear that you're joking. That depends on the tone of voice, your expression- and your relationship with your friend. Said with a smile, it might not be viewed as rude.

    Almost always, it's not WHAT we say, but HOW we say it and to whom, that counts.

    Of course you can say it to a friend and family.And yes, you could even say it to a person you want to be polite to, but you must be VERY careful that it's totally clear you're joking.

    It has been used among friends when one tells a whopper and the other derides the story by saying, "Come on get out of here."

    It's often said jokingly in a very friendly way, like if you came up to me and said, "Wow, you look hot," I might laughingly answer, "Oh get out," sometimes followed up with "of town."

    "get out" can mean "You are joking, right?"
