I'm totally confused why in some sentences the phrasal verb "hear out" is used instead of "hear".

For example:

Stewie: Look, I’m going to propose something and I need you to hear me out. Will you promise me you’ll do that?

To hear someone out is to let them speak all that they have to say, without interrupting.
