Well, you might need that after you announced to discover the toilet. (Such a sentence occurred here before.)

This is confusing. "Aus" was not in the peek list for "off", and Google translate suggests that it should be "Hosen ab!", while also translating "Hosen aus!" to "Pants on!" So wich is it?

'Hosen ab' doesn't exist, it would definitely be 'Hosen aus'. 'Pants on' would translate to 'Hosen an'. There are many cases where you can translate 'off' into 'aus' (The light is off - Das Licht is aus)
