#235. The Phrase "Out Of" (4 short videos)

The phrase "out of" can be difficult to understand sometimes, especially when it sounds something like "ah-duh".  Three things are happening in this short phrase: 

1) the "ou" sounds like "ah";
2) the "t" sounds like "d"; and 
3) the "of" sounds like "uh" (the "v" is silent).

As a result, the phrase "out of" sometimes sounds like "ah-duh" [1].  Here are four short videos that will help you remember that if you hear "ah-duh", it's really "out of". 

1) Homer Simpson (4 seconds)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xiWw5dwngc
That's it.  I'm getting _____ here.

2) Homer Simpson (1 second)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vewkfFu8Q7I
That's it.  I'm _____ here.

3) Trump (10 seconds)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZCzHYMEIeo
Get him out.  Ready?  Are you ready?  Get him _____ here!  Get him _____ here!  Get the hell _____ here!

4) Took the Words Out of My Mouth (18 seconds)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HSInh_293E
Let's get literal, literal.  Wooo!
Statt! [2]
Mm?
Statt!
Mmm!?  
Oh, thanks!  You took the words right _____ my mouth.  Sorry it's slobbery [3].

Notes:

[1] Sometimes I write "ah-da" instead of "ah-duh".  The sound is the same. 
[2] Statt = that's the guy's name.
[3] slobbery = covered with slobber (saliva from his mouth).

Answers:

All of the answers are "out of".
