scoot over

2018.10.03

Meaning:

‘scoot’ is a casual word that means ‘move quickly’. For example, ‘I have to scoot off now; I’m meeting my friend in 5 minutes.’ The phrasal verb ‘scoot over’ is a friendlier way to say ‘move over’. For example, we use this expression with friends and family when we’re sharing the sofa. We would not say ‘scoot over’ to a stranger on the train or a client in a business meeting.

Example:

A: Did you read this newspaper article about Trump?
B: What’s he done now? Scoot over so I can see the paper.

A: I’m home!
B: Hi honey. Did you have a good day?
A: Sure. Scoot over and I’ll sit down and tell you about it.
