A term used by people when in extremely awkward or un-wanted situations. Often said at a quick pace and often accompanied by a rolling of the eyes. It is a short response which actually has paragraphs of meaning behind it. If you have "Gotta go" said to you by someone else you have probably just made a fool of yourself. Consider jumping off the next cliff you see.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

Bud: "Let's hang out sometime and play Teletubbies."
Jill: "Gotta go!"

Person 1: "Want to come up to my room and finish Shrek!?"
Person 2: "Gotta go."

Person 1: (Says this to someone with a boyfriend deployed to Iraq.) "Oh my gosh, I miss my boyfriend so much. I haven't seen him in 3 hours!"
Person 2: (Instead of punching person one in face) "Gotta go!"

Get the Gotta Go Fast neck gaiter and mug.
An exclamatory phrase uttered to highlight a truly incredible moment, exemplary act, or memorable event. This excited utterance is most prominently used when there are simply no other words to describe the pure awesome-ness of the situation.

NOTE: Learned etymologists recognize that only a rare number of events or circumstances are actually worthy of this phrase, and so do not overuse it. In the event that a person is so fortunate as to live in or experience an incident or situation that may be deemed to be an even greater, more momentous moment – a pinnacle amongst pinnacles, as it were – the phrase may be expressed in all-caps in order to further emphasize its supreme significance.
