What mean I'll just get that? Are there other forms to say it?

Hello Alexander Bladeck,

I'll just get that here means that the speaker is going to answer the phone. We often use get in this way for answering phone calls, a knock at the door etc:

I'll get that = I'll answer it.

Can you get that? = Can you answer that?

Thank you. Your explanation is very helpful.

Thanks ♥

Wow thank you a lot Peter I learned something new.

If this ringing not urgent, I answer.

When I am with other people I try to not answer calls but if it is an important call, I answer it.

When I'm with other people I'm not off phone but I not agree calls.

Wao, I'm surprised with this grammar. I thought than I knew writing correctly but I dude it, now. British English is perfect to be polite and sophisticated.

Hi Kirk,
Could you explaine to me why Sammy uses "something" instead "anything" in this sentence: "Julia, so, shall we get something to eat?" You know, according to the rules in interrogative sentences they use "anything".
