    They can be synonymous. It depends on context and level of familiarity.

    You could also use "get a move on", but that also depends on context and familiarity.

    Note that "be quick" and "get a move on" may not be polite in many situations.

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Hello, Jilibili:

    This is only for your vocabulary. NEVER, EVER say it to anyone. If you do, the consequences may be very unpleasant.

    Server (waitress): What would you like today?

    You: I want a hamburger and fries. And make it snappy!

    *****

    You can also indirectly indicate that you are in a hurry.

    Taxi driver: Where to?

    You: I have to get to 1234 Maple Avenue in 20 minutes. Is that possible?

    Taxi driver: No problem.
