So friends what is the difference. A couple of days ago i was watching an Indian sitcom named Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain. In it I saw one of the main leads of the show saying it to the other person. I am sorry if the context is not clear. So please tell me which one is correct and if both are correct, what do they mean? Thanks in advance

  • Both are possible. "From" is more idiomatic. – Andrew Feb 2 '18 at 15:26
  • Was the context that they were Vampires? – aslum Feb 2 '18 at 15:32
  • Yes ASLUM, the male lead is pretending to be a Vampire. – kuldeep sharma Feb 2 '18 at 15:34

    From sounds more personal to me; out of sounds clinical. – Davo Feb 2 '18 at 16:53

    Possible duplicate of "took out of" or "took from" – Gossar Mar 5 '18 at 6:22

Both are "correct". They mean the same.

While appropriate for vampires, this isn't a common phrase for humans, but you could say

I'm going to pull the plug (out of/from) the socket.

Both are correct and mean the same.
