: I have been hanging out with some Brit friends who travel back and forth on a regular basis. I have noticed they are all making reference to "moments". "I thought we were going to have a moment there."

: Is this taking off in the UK or is it an American thing?

Somehow I can picture Judd Hirsch saying "I think we had a moment there" to his rotund and surly answering service operator in Taxi. That's U.S., late 1970's to early 1980's usage.
