    call from (in) the car

    Hi,

    I've come across the dialogue below in 'Dexter':

    A: What about Dexter?
    B: We'll call him from the car.

    What if I say, '...in the car'? How does the meaning change?

    Thanks.

    Re: call from (in) the car

    From the car means that you will be in the car when you call. In the car means he'll be in the car when you call him.
