Get to the point.

This might be used when someone is talking a lot without actually saying anything or without getting to the point; they aren't picking any direction and this is meant to spur them to just say, yes, no, or event maybe — pick a side, get to the point, wrap it up. Similar to "crap or get off the pot", but specifically with speech/speaking.
