Can I Use external js file for Usercontrol script?

here is the

<html xmlns="" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>

    <script src="JScript1.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">
        <uc1:WebUserControl1 ID="WebUserControl11" runat="server" />

Here is the usercontrol page

<script type ="text/javascript"></script>
<asp:Label ID="Name1" runat="server" Text="Label" /><asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" /><br />
<asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" Text="Button" OnClientClick="return ShowName();" />

and here is javascript code
function ShowName()
  var obj = $get('<%= this.TextBox1.ClientID %>');
  alert ( obj.value);
  return false;

I getting error on the   var obj = $get('<%= this.TextBox1.ClientID %>'); line.

If I put the script on the user control page then it works but I want to all my script in one js file and link it on the .aspx page using the controls.
