Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984) Poster

James Doohan: Scotty



  • [their first look at the USS Excelsior] 

    Uhura : Would you look at that.

    Kirk : My friends, the great experiment: The Excelsior. Ready for trial runs.

    Sulu : She's supposed to have transwarp drive.

    Scotty : Aye. And if my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon.

    Kirk : Come, come, Mr. Scott. Young minds, fresh ideas. Be tolerant.

  • Kirk : How much refit time before we can take her out again?

    Scotty : Eight weeks, sir. But ye don't have eight weeks, so I'll do it for ye in two.

    Kirk : Mr. Scott. Have you always multiplied your repair estimates by a factor of four?

    Scotty : Certainly, sir. How else can I keep my reputation as a miracle worker?

    Kirk : [over the intercom]  Your reputation is secure, Scotty.

  • Scotty : All systems automated and ready. A chimpanzee and two trainees could run her.

    Kirk : Thank you, Mr. Scott. I'll try not to take that personally.

  • Kirk : Scotty, you're as good as your word.

    Scotty : Aye, sir. The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

    [giving McCoy a handful of computer chips] 

    Scotty : Here, Doctor, souvenirs from one surgeon to another. I took them out of her main transwarp computer drive.

    McCoy : Nice of you to tell me in advance.

    Kirk : That's what you get for missing staff meetings, Doctor. Gentlemen, your work today has been outstanding and I intend to recommend you all for promotion... in whatever fleet we end up serving.

  • Captain Styles : Ah, Mr. Scott. Calling it a night?

    Scotty : Uh, yes sir.

    Captain Styles : Turning in myself, looking forward to breaking some of the Enterprise's speed records tomorrow.

    Scotty : Ah, yes sir.

    [behind his back, frowning] 

    Scotty : Good night.

    Elevator voice : Level, please.

    Scotty : Transporter room.

    Elevator voice : Thank you.

    Scotty : [under breath]  Up your shaft.

  • Scotty : [studying the Klingon Bird-of-Prey's helm]  Where's the damn antimatter inducer?

    Chekov : This?... no, *this*!

    Scotty : That or nothing.

    Sulu : If I read this right, sir, we have full power.

    Kirk : [exasperated]  Go, Sulu!

  • Elevator voice : Level please.

    Scotty : Transporter room.

    Elevator voice : Thank you.

    Scotty : Up your shaft.

  • [the Enterprise is approaching the closed Spacedock doors] 

    Kirk : And... *now*, Mr. Scott.

    Scotty : Sir?

    Kirk : The doors, Mr. Scott!

    Scotty : Aye, sir, I'm working on it!
