Beam me up, Scotty

Get me out of here! Take me away! This phrase comes from the TV show Star Trek, in which it was used (with slightly different wording) as a command to be brought back onto the starship Enterprise via a form of teleportation, often when faced with a dangerous situation. As screaming preschoolers ran all around me, all I could think was, "Beam me up, Scotty!"
