Used in theatre, when a director is giving "notes" to the actors after a rehearsal or performance. Many people feel the need to defend their actions or get defensive when receiving criticism or correction. It is meant as a conversation stopper to avoid protracted arguments and to demonstrate the objectiviy needed to progress.
"Freddie, I know they mug like that on the West End, but here I need you to pull it in a little."

"Well, yes, but I was trying to convey a sense of urgency..."

"Freddie, pull it in."

"Yes, but I'd like to express myself fully..."

"Freddie. Pull it in."

"Yes, but..."

"Freddie. Take the note."
