If I assign SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb().Title to a string, do I need to dispose of it (if possible)?

string title = SPContext.Current.Site.OpenWeb().Title;

I'm still a little fuzzy on when to dispose of sp objects, so I always dispose of my SPWeb and SPSite objects... But, if I don't assign the statement above to an object first, is there any disposing I need to do? I also understand that there are certain cases where using Current eliminates the need to dispose.
