Here's some of my favorite quotes of his from the movie Star Trek - The Voyage Home...
Scott: "I put it in another way. How thick would a piece of plexiglass need to be at sixty feet by ten feet to withstand the pressure of eighteen
thousand cubic feet of water?"
Nichols: "Oh, that's easy, six inches. We carry stuff that big in stock."
Scott: "I, uh, noticed. Now suppose...just suppose...I were to show you a way to manufacture a wall that would do the same job...but be only one inch
thick. Woul that be worth something to you?"
Nichols: [Laughs] "You're joking."
McCoy: "Perhaps the professor could use your computer."
Scott: "Computer? Computer?"
McCoy: [Hands Scott the mouse]
Scott: "Ah. Hello, computer."
Nichols: "Just use the keyboard."
Scott: "A keyboard! How quaint."
McCoy: "You, uh, realize, of course, if we give him the formula, we're altering the future."
Scott: "Why? How do we know he didn't invent the thing?"
Kirk: "Scotty, are the whale tanks secure?"
Scott: "Aye, sir. But I've never beamed up four-hundred tons before!"
Kirk: "Four-hundred tons?"
Scott: "Well, it's not just the whales...it's the water!"
Kirk: "Yes, of course."
Scott: "Admiral, there be whales here!"
Scott: "Hold on tight, Lassie. It gets bumpy from here."
