In English, /get out/ can be used transitively. When used that way, it 
means the same thing as /take out./

/I get out my pocket watch and show it to the child.
/*buq tlhaqwIj vIlel 'ej puqvaD vI'agh.*

Using /get out/ this way in English is less formal than /take out./ 
English teachers might balk at it and want you to change it to /take out./
