"Beam me up, Scotty" is a catchphrase that made its way into popular culture

exact phrase was never actually spoken in any Star Trek television episode

used to describe one's desire to be elsewhere, technology such as
teleportation, slang for certain drugs, or as a phrase to show appreciation
and association with the television show.
