scooch

Posted in verb at 3:01 pm by Feng

scooch — to move the buttocks over, around or up and down [ODE]

On ‘Friends’, Ross asks people sitting on a bench to move a bit to make a room for his ex-wife. He says: “People, scooch down please?” This is a word primarily used in America, and English people here generally claim that they never heard of this word. “In that situation,” an English lady explains, “we usually say: scoot over or move along.”
