English term or phrase: As just quickly as we were out....we were in.
The bouncer said," If you're not on the list you can't come in" and gently but firmly pushed me aside. Fortunately, at this moment Hilary Swank arrived wearing a see-through dress and the paparazzi went nuts. Everyone took this opportunity to rush the door, and we were swept up into a wave of unstoppable, fabulously dressed humaity, shoving past the now screaming guards. And "just as quickly as we were out...we were in."

Explanation:
In the blink of an eye - because of the confusion with the arrival of Hilary Swank in a see-through dress and the ensuing madness created by the paparazzi, they were able to be swept in at the very moment they were being escorted out.
