This seems to spring from Scotty's general panicky attitude when they exceed warp 6 or whatever.
Well that or Kirk's boldness with the ship forcing the engineer to remind him of the design specs.

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

Nope.
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.
There's no such line in Trek V at all. The vaguely closest thing is, "We'll beat those Klingon devils, even if I have to get out and push."

The question was about IV, not V.

In the previews for Trek 6 (not the teaser with the archival footage), Scotty looks at a console during the attack and says "she cannot take much more of this!" In the film itself, I think all he says is "she's packing quite a whallop! Shields weaking!" It's been a little while since I've seen it though.

Whoops. Well, there's no such line in IV as released, albeit the script reads:

SCOTTY'S VOICE
I don't think she'll hold together,
sir!

During the first time warp, but that entire exchange didn't make the final edit.

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

In TVH, Scotty is talking about the dilithium crystals and says, "They're giving out. De-crystallizing." That's similar to a line in "The Time Trap," when he says "It's our dilithium crystals, sir. They're deteriorating rapidly."
