To fall over
Fall over is most commonly used to describe someone tripping over something.
To fall down
To fall down can also be used in the same way as fall over but not commonly. Fall down means to, like it suggests, fall down something, but not over. So you can fall down a flight of stairs but you cannot fall down a cliff. Okay, so you can fall off a cliff or anything really that has a substantial gap between the object you were on before you fell and the object you landed on after you fell.
To fall out
The best example of falling out is to fall out of love or out of friendship. It is to fall from either an emotional or physical object. So strangely enough you can fall out of a plane but not a cliff. This is because you are not in a cliff but you are on a cliff.
To fall out of
To fall out of something you must be in it. As for being in love, this is emotional and you are in this with another. This is confusing I know but I hope it helped.

Aussie88To sum up.... 'Jim fell over a rock while hiking, he then fell down the hill. As Jim was falling he couldn't stop so he fell off the edge off a cliff. By some miracle Jim survived and he was put in an ambulance. As the ambulance was driving the back door opened and Jim fell out and onto the road.'
