get in here/get in from here

have some questions and I'd like to know if you could help me with them. Please!!

In a movie, I heard the following sentence:

(Two robbers looking at a map): " We get in from here and I think the best way out is coming from here"

Couldn't I say just "We get in here and I think the best way out is coming out of here"??"

Can't I say "Get in here"?

Thank you!

    Yes, you probably could say that. I can't be sure, since I didn't see the scene.

    But if your sentence is correct, that doesn't mean his sentence is incorrect. His sentence is correct.

    Why does he use "from"? He may be saying "we get in from the east side" but he replaces "east side" with "here" plus a hand motion. Or something else.
