How can I use the filter in Wireshark to find only those lines that have HTTP GET in them?

Put this string in the Filter: field:

http.request.method == "GET"

and click on Apply.

You might find it useful to click on Filter: to see a list of pre-defined filters and to click on Expression... to see a list of terms that you can use to build your own filter expressions. For example, scroll down the Expression... list to HTTP - Hypertext Transfer Protocol and click on the + to see a list of HTTP-related terms. Valid relations appear in the center of the dialog box and values can be entered on the right. Clicking on some of the pre-defined filters under Filter: will show you how the filters were constructed and give you an idea of how to construct your own.
