Beam me up, Scotty

Everyone knows that the popular catchphrase "Beam me up, Scotty" came from 'Star Trek'. Except it didn't.

It seems that "Beam me up, Scotty" was never used by William Shatner (Captain Kirk) in 'Star Trek'. The nearest he came to it was "Beam us up, Scotty" on the Star Trek animated series
