Star Trek (2009) Poster


Simon Pegg: Scotty



  • Spock Prime : What if I told you that your transwarp theory was correct, that is is indeed possible to beam onto a ship that is traveling at warp speed?

    Scotty : I think if that equation had been discovered, I'd have heard about it.

    Spock Prime : The reason you haven't heard of it, Mr. Scott, is because you haven't discovered it yet.

    Scotty : I'm s... Wha... It... Are you from the future?

    James T. Kirk : Yeah, he is. I'm not.

    Scotty : Well, that's brilliant. Do they still have sandwiches there?

  • Scotty : I like this ship! You know, it's exciting!

  • Scotty : Except, the thing is, even if I believed you, right, where you're from, what I've done - which I don't, by the way - you're still talking about beaming aboard the Enterprise while she's traveling faster than light, without a proper receiving pad.

    Scotty : [to Keenser]  Get off there! It's not a climbing frame!

    Scotty : [back to Spock Prime]  The notion of transwarp beaming is like trying to hit a bullet with a smaller bullet whilst wearing a blindfold, riding a horse.

    [Spock writes on a paper] 

    Scotty : What's that?

    Spock Prime : Your equation for achieving transwarp beaming.

    Scotty : [to himself]  He's out of it

    Scotty : [reads the equation]  Imagine that! It never occurred to me to think of SPACE as the thing that was moving!

  • Spock Prime : You are, in fact, the Mr. Scott who postulated the theory of transwarp beaming?

    Scotty : That's what I'm talking about! How do you think I wound up here? Had a little debate with my instructor on relativistic physics and how it pertains to subspace travel. He seemed to think that the range of transporting something like a... like a grapefruit was limited to about 100 miles. I told him that I could not only beam a grapefruit from one planet to the adjacent planet in the same system - which is easy, by the way - I could do it with a life form. So, I tested it out on Admiral Archer's prized beagle.

    James T. Kirk : Wait, I know that dog. What happened to it?

    Scotty : I'll tell you when it reappears. Ahem. I don't know, I do feel guilty about that.

  • Spock : We are traveling at warp speed. How did you manage to beam aboard this ship?

    James T. Kirk : Hey, you're the genius. You figure it out.

    Spock : As acting captain of this vessel, I order you to answer the question.

    James T. Kirk : Well, I'm not telling, "Acting Captain." What, did...?

    [Kirk smiles] 

    James T. Kirk : What, now, that doesn't frustrate you, does it? My lack of cooperation? That-that doesn't make you angry...

    Spock : [Spock turns to Scotty]  Are you a member of Starfleet?

    Scotty : I, um, yes. Can I get a towel, please?

    Spock : Under penalty of court martial, I order you to explain to me how you were able to beam aboard this ship while moving at warp.

    Scotty : Well...

    James T. Kirk : Don't answer him.

    Spock : You will answer me.

    Scotty : [pause]  I'd rather not take sides.

  • [the U.S.S. Enterprise is being sucked into a black hole, seconds away from doom] 

    Scotty : I'm giving her all she's got, Captain!

    [the bridge ceiling begins to crack as the ship's drawn closer] 

    James T. Kirk : All she's got isn't good enough! What else ya got?

    Scotty : Um... Okay, if we eject the core and detonate, the blast could be enough to push us away! I cannae promise anything, though!

    [the viewing window starts to rupture] 

    James T. Kirk : DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!

  • [Spock Prime and Kirk arrive at a derelict Starfleet outpost, and discover...] 

    Scotty : You realize how unacceptable this is?

    Spock Prime : Fascinating!

    Scotty : Okay, I'm sure you're just doing your job, but could you not have come a wee bit sooner? Six months I've been here, living off Starfleet protein nibs and the promise of a good meal! And I know exactly what's going on here, okay? Punishment, isn't it? Ongoing! For something that was clearly an accident!

    Spock Prime : [pleased]  You are Montgomery Scott.

    James T. Kirk : You know him?

    Scotty : Aye, that's me. You're in the right place. Unless there's another hardworking, equally starved Starfleet officer around.

    Keenser : Me.

    Scotty : Get aff! Shut up! You don't eat anything! You can eat, like, a bean, and you're done. I'm talking about food. REAL food!

  • Scotty : I've never beamed three people from two targets onto one pad before!

  • Scotty : So, the Enterprise has had its maiden voyage, has it? She is one well-endowed lady. I'd like to get my hands on her "ample nacelles," if you pardon the engineering parlance.

  • James T. Kirk : Scotty, how we doin'?

    Scotty : Dilithium chamber at maximum, Captain.

    Scotty : [noticing Keenser straddling a console]  GET DOWN!
