* BeamMeUpScotty: The actual line from Howard Beale's rant is "I'm ''as'' mad as hell, and I'm not ''going'' to take ''this'' anymore!" Often misquoted as "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not gonna take it anymore!" Also, Beale doesn't shout it out the window; only his viewers do, although their wording differs slightly... which makes this case of BeamMeUpScotty understandable.
