Whoa, that’s a lot of truthiness.
Colbert lays down the fucking law
OH COME ON

I scrolled past this but I audibly whispered “NO…” to nobody in particular so here we are. Damn it.
Puncher: Montgomery Scott
Punchee: Klingon troublemaker
Memorable Lines: "Laddie, don’t you think you should rephrase that?"
Why it’s Awesome: Star Trek has always been known for its awesome ships. The one I want to talk about today is Scotty/Enterprise. (What did you think I meant?) When the Klingons try to start something by insulting the Captain, Scotty plays the voice of reason, keeping his fellow officers from letting themselves be provoked. But when the same troublemaker moves from the subject of the Captain to the good ship herself, well, it becomes a matter of pride. You just don’t talk like that about a lady - and certainly not in front of Scotty.
It’s worth noting - Klingons are stronger and faster than humans, trained as warriors… and Scotty knocks this one across the room and over a table, without really exerting himself. It just goes to show, you don’t mess with Scotty where the Enterprise is concerned. He’ll have rebuttal ready for you in two hours - but you don’t have two hours, so here’s a punch in the face.
