    Default Man alive!

    Phoebe: It's fine. I mean, this is something that you've been thinking about since you were what,14?"(She's referring to the Halloween picture.)

    Rachel: No, I was ten. I just developed early.

    Phoebe: (looking at the picture again) Man alive!

    =>What does "Man alive!" mean?

    It's an expression of surprise or shock, like 'Good God', etc.
