07/20/2005: Scotty beams up for the last time....
James Doohan, dead at age 85
My favorite Scotty line:
Scott: Do you mind a little advice? Starfleet captains are like children. They want everything right now, and they want it their way. But the secret is to give only what they need, not what they want!
LaForge: Yeah, well I told the captain I'd have this analysis done in an hour.
Scott: How long would it really take?
LaForge: An hour!
Scott: Oh, you didn't tell him how long it would really take, did you?
LaForge: Well of course I did.
Scott: Oh, laddie, you've got a lot to learn if you want people to think of you as a miracle worker!
