The goto keyword returns the flow of operation to the label which follows it. Labels can be created by putting a colon after any word. e.g.

thelabel:       // This is a label
 System.Console.WriteLine("Blah blah blah");
 goto thelabel; // Program flow returns to thelabel

The use of goto is very controversial, because, when used frivolously, it creates code that jumps from place to place and is disorganized and hard to read. It is rarely even necessary because the same thing can often be accomplished with a more organized for loop or while loop.
