Great Scott!

My friend & me watched my favorite movie "Back To The Future 2, 3" on last night.
Whenever I watch the movie, I think this movie is great again and also Michael J. Fox is cool!!

By the way, in this movie, Doc was saying "Great Scott!" many times.
I thought meaning was someone who was named Scott did good job or something.
But my idea was wrong.
According to my electronic dictionary, it means like "Oh, my goodness".
And also I asked my roommate if she uses that now.
She said no but if you use it now, it may be funny.
Probably, it must be like a dead language (Shi-go in Japanese).

Movie is good to study English for me but sometimes I need to be careful cause sometimes phrases may be unused.
