    'There is a world of difference between saying “You are frigid” and saying “When I get frustrated, I accuse you of being frigid.” Likewise, there is huge gap between
    saying “You try to punish me” versus “When we get into the heat of things, I start feeling that you are trying to punish me.” A. Christensen 'Reconcilable differences'

    What does it exactly mean 'get into the heat of things'? Something like 'get into an argument'?

    Yes that is how I interpret it.
