motion is sidetracked by other discussion

What can I say if I want the discussion to return to the motion for further discussion before a vote?

When a motion is immediately pending, debate must be confined to the merits of that motion. If discussion drifts, raise a point of order, citing the following:

"In debate a member's remarks must be germane to the question before the assembly -- that is, his statements must have bearing on whether the immediately pending motion should be adopted…" - RONR (11th ed.), p. 392, ll. 6-10.
