Hi teachers,
Would 'move rapidly' be an appropriate synonym for 'hurry up' in the following sentence?
There’s no time! Now hurry up (move rapidly). Give me the newspaper, Peter!
Would 'be rapid' be also an appropriate synonym?

Thanks in advance.

    Move does not make any sense if it refers to give me the newspaper.
    The word rapid is not often used in speech. We tend to say quick.
    So if you want someone to do something quickly, you can say Hurry up! or Be quick!
