Mr. Scott With Computer

Posted on June 18, 2009 by under Movies.    

This is my favorite scene from Star Trek: The Voyage Home. Mr. Scott is so funny. Another funny scene occurs right at the beginning of the movie.

CAPT. KIRK: How long to re-fit?

MR. SCOTT: Eight weeks. But you don’t have eight weeks, so I’ll do it for you in two.

CAPT. KIRK: Do you always multiply your repair estimates by a factor of four?

MR. SCOTT: How else to maintain my reputation as a miracle worker?

CAPT. KIRK: Your reputation is safe with me.

It cracked me up because it is so Brian. I think Brian took pointers from Mr. Scott. He does this sort of thing — overestimating completion time frames — at work all the time. Sorry I outed you, babe. =P

    How weird! I was JUST thinking about that today. That scene and the one where Scotty ‘talks’ to the computer through the mouse.

    Are you a trekkie????

    Probably Trekkie in training? No. I don’t think we are Trekkies. Love the Star Trek franchise, though. Brian is a huge sci-fi nut.

    […] Star Trek: The Voyage Home (1986) A mysterious alien power threatens Earth by evaporating the oceans and destroying the atmosphere. Humpback whales, extinct in the 23rd century, are the only beings able to communicate with the alien probe. Kirk and his crew go back in time to retrieve a couple of humpback whales from the past, bring them back to the present and save the planet. Mr. Scott is really funny in this one. […]
