    Wink Re: What's "Move Along"?

    Move (somebody/something) along something:
    1. go along a road, path etc.
    "We moved along the motorway until the junction at Swindon."
    Move along (usually imperative):
    2. to leave and wait in a particular place
    The police officer told me: "Just move along, sir."
    Something moves along:
    3. you are continuing with something and making progress
    The work moved along smoothly.

    Re: What's "Move Along"?

    Here is the my sentence:

    "Can we move this along a bit?"(In talk)

    This means continue to talk?

    Re: What's "Move Along"?

    I guess you're right about your other meaning of 'move along' - 'continue to be the same' like in: "I love you, my dear. Move along, move along like I know you..."
    Cheers.

    Used in this context, it means can we please speed things up, maybe change the topic?

    It implies that the speaker has dwelled too long on one subject, and everyone else is weary of the topic. Particularly if it's in the context of a meeting, and they have a limited amount of time for discussion.
