I'm Giving Her all she's got Captain!

Hey all, new here but am desperately seeking some info from the original series. I need to locate an episode that contains the exchange between Scotty and Captain Kirk. Preaching Sunday, tomorrow, and want to use that as part of my message.

Any help locating a specific episode with that verbiage would be greatly appreciateProbably quickest to reply to jsrodulski@gmail.com if you have any ideas.

Thanks!

Re: I'm Giving Her all she's got Captain!

I'm actually beginning to think that's one of those "beam me up, Scotty"/"Play it again Sam" lines...the ones that never actually were said. I did some Googling and the closest lines I can find are:

SCOTT: Coming, sir. If I push these impulse engines too hard in the condition they're in, they'll blow apart.
--The Doomsday Machine

KIRK: Full power to the shields, Mister Scott.
SCOTT: Giving them all we got.
--The Changeling

The line is from Star Trek 2009. I don't believe the exact wording was ever used in TOS - neither the series, nor the movies.

Thanks for the help all! I guess I was mistaken I had thought I had heard that line regarding something or the other but I guess maybe not.

Thanks again!

Airport (the movie)

Co-pilot: "She can't take anymore Mister Patroni."

Joe Patroni: "Well by God, she going to get it."

Re: I'm Giving Her all she's got Captain!

It's not TOS, or even anything official, but Scotty does say "I'm Giving Her all she's got Captain!" in How it Should have Ended's parody of the last movie.

I'd probably use it in a sermon... (but then it seems I'm a few days late)

I think Scott did utter something along those lines in ST IV.

I dunno whether it was said in the series, but it's certainly something I tell my wife when we're in bed...

According to http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Star...oaded_Weapon_1, in Loaded Weapon 1:
James Doohan appears in a small cameo as "Scotty" (wearing a police uniform) in this 1993 comedy, repairing the coffee machine, complaining with his thick Scottish accent: "I'm giving her all she's got, Captain!". Also, the main villain of the movie is played by William Shatner.

You're right. Overnight, I thought some more, and realized that Scott had a variation of another semi-iconic line. It was something like: "The crystals can't take much more of this."

Will someone with better memory please clarify? Thanks.

Re: I'm Giving Her all she's got Captain!

This seems to spring from Scotty's general panicky attitude when they exceed warp 6 or whatever. He'd pipe off with some "if we stay at warp 6 the engines will blow up, cap'n!" overdrama, and that became part of his pop culture persona. So he's not being quoted, just mocked for his panic.
