    There is the positive use “Budge over” or “Budge up” which seems to mean make room on a couch or bench or other seating implement.

  2. Steve Parkes:

    The Master — Noel Coward — took his cue from that greatest of Masters; “I’ll not budge an inch” is on the first page of “The taming of the shrew” (http://www.opensourceshakespeare.org/views/plays/play_view.php?WorkID=tamingshrew&Act=0&Scene=1&Scope=scene).

  3. Scott:

    When do you think the term “budge up” (as in “move over”) first came into use? Does anyone know?
