'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' (1979) — Misquote
The multi-part sci-fi "Star Trek" TV and film series (first telecast as a one-hour TV show in 1966 and lasting until 1969 before syndication, and inspiring numerous feature films, beginning with "Star Trek: The Motion Picture"), popularized the common phrase, "Beam me up, Scotty." Contrary to popular belief, Captain Kirk (William Shatner) never uttered the line: “Beam me up, Scotty”.
