Do you get it? = Do you understand it? Get dressed = dress oneself (Slang) Get a grip = calm down, get control of yourself. Get the gist = Understand the main point of what is being said. Get out = leave Get in = enter, as in get in a car. Get on a plane = board the plane (I hope you're not ON it, but IN it.)

"Get" is simply one of those nebulous words you will have to get used to. ;) The best option is to look at the context - ie. the whole phrase - and you'll get the meaning.
