“Beam me up, Scotty”

MIA: There was a phony murder?
LORELAI: Yeah, the town’s too dull to work up a real murder.
RORY: But you’re one ‘beam me up Scotty’ reference away from being the victim of one.

“Beam me up, Scotty” is a catchphrase associated with the original series of Star Trek, from the command Captain Kirk gives chief engineer Montgomery Scott (“Scotty”) when he needs to be transported back to the Enterprise.

In fact, the phrase was never actually used on the show, although similar lines were said, such as, “Scotty, beam us up”, and “Mr Scott, beam us up”.
