Freak out:      <source: Answers.com >

Behave or cause to behave irrationally and uncontrollably, with enthusiasm, excitement, fear, or madness. For example, The band's wild playing made the audience freak out, or It was such a close accident, it really freaked me out, or She freaked out and ended up in the psychiatric ward. [Slang; 1960s] Also see flip one's lid; wig out.

 

 

 

Interesting how much this expression was used even in the 70´s or so.

Some of my relatives and acquaintances talked about "alguém que teve um fricóte" at that time; ah, now I know whrere all this came from.
