Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)
Captain Spock: If I were human I believe my response would be "go to hell." If I were human.
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: Course heading, Captain?
Captain James T. Kirk: Second star to the right and straight on till morning.

Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: [to Uhura] Guess who's coming to dinner.

[Watching a replay of the torpedo hit]
Commander Pavel Chekov: It is Enterprise. We fired them.
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: That is not possible! All weapons visually accounted for, sir.
Captain Spock: An ancestor of mine maintained that when you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth. If we did not fire those torpedoes, another ship did.

Lieutenant Valeris: A Bird-of-Prey?
Captain Spock: A Bird-of-Prey.
Commander Pavel Chekov: Cloaked?
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: A Bird-of-Prey cannot open fire when she's cloaked!
Captain Spock: All things being equal, Mr. Scott, I would agree with you. However, all things are not equal. This one can.

Commander Pavel Chekov: I don't understand. If there was another ship underneath us, surely the assassins beamed aboard from that vessel, not Enterprise.
Captain Spock: You're forgetting something, Mr. Chekov. According to our ship's databanks, this ship fired those torpedoes. If we did, the killers are here. If we did not, whoever altered the databanks is here. In either case, what we are looking for, is here.

[the crew enter the bridge]
Kirk: Once again, we've saved civilization as we know it.
McCoy: And the good news is they're not going to prosecute.
Uhuru: They might as well have prosecuted me. I felt like Lt. Valeris.
McCoy: [looks at Spock] Well, they don't prosecute people for having feelings.
Chekov: Just as well, or we'll all have to turn ourselves in.

Cmdr. Nyota Uhura: You are Crewman Dax?
Crewman Dax: Yes Commander. What is the problem?
Commander Pavel Chekov: Perhaps you have heard Russian epic of Cinderella? If shoe fits, wear it!
[drops magnetic boots at Dax's feet]
Captain Spock: Mr. Chekov...
[camera pans down to show that Dax's feet are incapable of fitting into boots]

Kirk: What are we all doing here?
McCoy: Maybe they're throwing us a retirement party.
Scotty: That suits me. I just bought a boat.
Uhuru: This had better be good. I'm supposed to be chairing a seminar at the Academy.
Chekov: Captain, isn't this just for top brass?
McCoy: If we're all here, where's Sulu?
Kirk: *Captain* Sulu, on assignment. Where's Spock?

Captain James T. Kirk: [Spock has beamed Kirk and Bones aboard just before they find out who framed them] No! No! Of all the - son of a - Couldn't you have waited two seconds? They were just about to tell us the whole thing!
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: You want to go back?
Commander Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, M.D.: Absolutely not!
Captain James T. Kirk: [whispering] It's cold.

Captain James T. Kirk: Valeris, know anything about a radiation surge?
Lieutenant Valeris: Sir?
Captain James T. Kirk: Chekov?
Commander Pavel Chekov: Only the size of my head.
Captain James T. Kirk: [to himself] I know what you mean.

Captain Spock: [to Lt. Valeris] Lieutenant, the torpedo hit, once again, please.
[Valeris replays video]
Captain Spock: Hold.
[replay pauses]
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: It *is* Enterprise. *We* fired.
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: That is *not* possible! All weapons *visually* accounted for,
[to Spock]
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: sir.
Captain Spock: An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
Cmdr. Nyota Uhura: What, exactly, does *that* mean?
Captain Spock: It means that we can not have fired those torpedoes, someone else did.
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: Well, they dinna fire on themselves, and there were no the ships present.
Captain Spock: There was an enormous neutron energy surge.
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: Not from us!
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: A neutron surge that big could only be produced by another ship.
Cmdr. Nyota Uhura: Kronos One?
Captain Spock: Too far away. Very near *us*. Possibly *beneath* us.
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: If there were a ship beneath us, the Klingons would have seen her.
Captain Spock: [pause] Would they?
Lieutenant Valeris: A bird-of-prey.
Captain Spock: A bird-of-prey.
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: *Cloaked?*
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: A bird-of-prey cannot fire when she's cloaked.
Captain Spock: All things being equal, Mr. Scott, I would agree. However, things are not equal. This one *can*.
Lieutenant Valeris: We must inform Starfleet Command.
Captain Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: Inform them of what? A new weapon that is invisible? Raving lunatics, that's what they'll call us. They'll say we're so desperate to exonerate the Captain, we'll say *anything*.
Captain Spock: And they would be correct. We have no evidence, only a theory which happens to fit the facts.
Cmdr. Nyota Uhura: Assuming you're right, Mr. Spock, why would they fire on their own president?
Captain Spock: Indeed.

Captain Spock: This ship will be searched from bow to stern, Lieutenant Valeris, you'll be in charge.
Lieutenant Valeris: Aye, sir.
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: I do not understand. If there *was* a ship underneath us, surely the assassins beamed aboard from *that* vessel, not Enterprise.
Captain Spock: You're forgetting something, Mr. Chekov. According to out databanks, this ship fired those torpedoes. If we *did*, the killers are here. If we did *not*, whoever altered the databanks is here. In either case, what we are looking for *is* here.
Commander Pavel Andreievich Chekov: What *are* we looking for, sir?
Captain Spock: Lieutenant?
Lieutenant Valeris: Two pairs of gravity boots.


Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)
Chekov: Admiral. We have found the nuclear wessel.
Kirk: Well done, Team two.
Chekov: And Admiral... it is the *Enterprise*.
[Kirk and Spock look at each other]
Kirk: Understood.

Chekov: [to a policeman] Excuse me, sir! Can you direct us to the naval base in Alameda? It's where they keep the nuclear wessels.
[He pauses, looks at Uhura, and tries again]
Chekov: *Nuclear wessels*.

[Chekov is being interrogated]
FBI agent interrogating Chekov: Name.
Chekov: My name?
FBI agent interrogating Chekov: [sarcastically] No, my name.
Chekov: I do not know your name.
FBI agent interrogating Chekov: You play games with me, Mister, and you're through.
Chekov: I am? May I go now?

Chekov: Cloaking device now available on all flight modes.
Kirk: I'm impressed - That's a lot of work for a short voyage.
Chekov: We are in an enemy wessel, sir. I did not wish to be shot down on our way to our own funeral.
Kirk: Good thinking.

FBI agent interrogating Chekov: What do you think?
FBI Agent 2: He's a Russki.
FBI agent interrogating Chekov: That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life, of course he's a Russki but he's a retard or something...
FBI Agent 2: You better call Washington.
Chekov: [picks up his phaser from the table, aiming at the FBI agents] Don't move!
FBI agent interrogating Chekov: OK, make nice, give us the ray gun.
Chekov: I warn you, if you don't lie on the floor... I will have to stun you.
FBI agent interrogating Chekov: Go ahead. Stun me.
Chekov: I'm very sorry, but...
[tries to fire the phaser, but it jams. Laughs nervously]
Chekov: Heh, must be the radiation.
[throws the phaser at the FBI agent and escapes through a back door]

[to 20th Century American interrogators]
Chekov: I am Pavel Chekov, a commander in Starfleet. United Federation of Planets Service Number 656-5827D.

Kirk: [Trying to revive Mr. Checkov] Pavel, talk to me
[pause]
Kirk: Name! Rank!
Chekov: [groggily] Chekov, Pavel. Rank
[pause]
Chekov: Admiral!

Chekov: Please, please - We're looking for the naval base in Alameda can you tell us where the nuclear wessels are?
Random Passerby: Oh, I don't know if I know the answer to that. I think it's across the Bay. In Alameda!
Chekov: That's what I said - Alameda, I know that.
Cmdr. Uhura: But where is Alameda?

[Captain Kirk and his crew prepare to time warp in order to retrieve Humpback whales from the past; via sling-shooting around the sun]
Kirk: [to himself] May fortune favor the foolish...
[normal voice]
Kirk: Warp speed, Mister Sulu.
Sulu: Aye, sir. Warp speed.
[the captured Klingon Vessel speeds up at warp speed]
Sulu: [silence in the cockpit; nonchalantly] Warp two... warp three.
Kirk: [uneasy] Steady as she goes...
Sulu: Warp four...
[a metallic reading plate slips off of Spock's desk. Spock reaches for it, but it falls into the grate. As the ship gets closer and closer to the sun, the interior of the Klingon vessel begins to vibrate gradually]
Sulu: Warp five...
[Another metallic reading plate slips off of Uhura's communications desk; clattering to the floor]
Sulu: Warp six...
[several objects fall to the floor noisily in the background as the ship's alarms go off]
Sulu: Warp seven... warp eight...
Chekov: Sir... heat shield's at maximum!
Sulu: [over the alarms] warp NINE! Time warp two, Time warp three...
Kirk: [over the noise] We need to break away the speed.
Sulu: [literally shouting over the alarms] Time warp five, Time warp six, Time warp seven, Time warp eight...
[a screen bursts into shatters due to the pressure from the sun; Uhura screams. Kirk, Chekov, McCoy and Spock immediately turn their heads toward Uhrua's direction]
Cmdr. Uhura: [over the noise] I'm fine... I'm all right.
[Kirk lets out a sigh of relief; steam hisses as the ceiling cracks; the window shows that they are getting really close to the sun]
Kirk: [shouts] NOW MISTER SULU!
[the ship successfully maneuvers around the sun]


"Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II: To Serve All My Days (#1.2)" (2006)
Lt. Pavel Chekov: This is starting to get... very Russian...

Lt. Pavel Chekov: I should be on that bridge. That Klingon is still out there and I'm the best weapons officer the Keptin has.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: Best in the fleet!

Ambassador Rayna Morgan: Oh Pavel, if ever you were needed, it would be in the next few hours.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: That may be all the time I have left...

Lt. Pavel Chekov: How much time do I have, honestly?
Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Damn it, Pavel, I'm a doctor. Not a watchmaker.
[pause]
Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Soon.

Lt. Pavel Chekov: Who would have thought I'd live so long in such a short time?

Ambassador Rayna Morgan: You know, you remind me so much of someone I knew a long time ago.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: Would that be because I resemble my grandfather, Dimitri Chekov, Federation ambassador to Russia?

Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Take this shift off. Go back to your quarters and relax.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: But doctor, I feel fine!
Dr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Hey, doctor's orders. And if you decide to disobey, remember, I can pull you in here for a complete two day medical exam, with probes, just because.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: I think I'll go back to my quarters... and relax.


Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982)
Khan: Captain, Captain, Captain... save your strength. These people have sworn to live and die at my command two hundred years before you were born. Do you mean he never told you the tale? To amuse your Captain, no? Never told you how the Enterprise picked up the Botany Bay, lost in space from the year 1996 with myself and the ship's company in cryogenic freeze?
Capt. Terrell: I never even met Admiral Kirk.
Khan: 'Admiral?' 'Admiral!' 'Admiral'... Never told you how 'Admiral' Kirk sent seventy of us into exile in this barren sandheap with only the contents of these cargo bays to sustain us?
Chekov: You lie! On Ceti Alpha Five there was life! A fair chance...
Khan: [shouts] THIS IS CETI ALPHA FIVE! Ceti Alpha Six exploded six months after we were left here. The shock shifted the orbit of this planet and everything was laid waste. 'Admiral' Kirk never bothered to check on our progress. It was only the fact of my genetically-engineered intellect that allowed us to survive. On Earth, two hundred years ago, I was a prince with power over millions...
Chekov: Captain Kirk was your host. You repaid his hospitality by trying to steal his ship and murder him!

[Khan, about to put Ceti Eels in Terrell and Chekov's ears]
Khan: You see, their young enter through the ears and wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex. This has the effect of rendering the victim extremely susceptible to suggestion. Later, as they grow, follows madness and death.
Chekov: Khan, listen to me...
Khan: These are pets, of course. Not quite domesticated.

[Terrell and Chekov have beamed down into a sandstorm]
Capt. Terrell: Chekov, are you *sure* these are the correct coordinates?
Chekov: Captain, this is the garden spot of Ceti Alpha Six!

Chekov: [to Khan] Captain Kirk was your host. You repaid his hospitality by trying to steal his ship and murder him!

[Chekov has noticed an energy flux reading on the scanner, prompting Terrell to contact Dr. Carol Marcus]
Captain Clark Terrell: Maybe it's something we can transplant, uhm?
Cmdr. Pavel Chekov: You *know* what she'll say.

Chekov: Oh, sir, it was Khan! We picked him up on Ceti Alpha Five... He put... creatures... in our bodies... to control our minds. He made us... say lies... do things. He thought he controlled us, but he did not. The Captain was strong.

Kirk: Time?
Saavik: Three minutes, thirty seconds.
Kirk: Distance from Reliant?
Chekov: 4000 kilometers.
Sulu: We're not going to make it, are we?
[Kirk turns to look at David, who slowly shakes his head]


Star Trek: Of Gods and Men (2007) (V)
Captain Pavel Chekov: This almost makes me feel like a kid again!
Captain Nyota Uhura: Well, it should. The last time you sat in that seat, you were a kid.

Captain Pavel Chekov: Deja vu all over again.

Chekov: Nyota, I'm honored to know you. In both lifetimes.

Chekov: Damn it! Where's Scotty when you need him?

Uhura: [raising her glass] Here's to forty years of high adventure!
Admiral Chekov: [raises his] Here's to the next forty.
Admiral Chekov: [Uhura gives him a puzzled look] Well, as Spock is so fond of saying: there is always a possibility...

Chekov: Say good-bye, Mr. Mitchell.


Star Trek (2009)
James T. Kirk: [hurling to his death with Sulu] Kirk to Enterprise. We're falling without a chute. Beam us up!
Transport Chief: I'm trying. I can't lock onto your signal.
James T. Kirk: Beam us up!
Transport Chief: You're moving too fast!
James T. Kirk: Beam us up!
Pavel Chekov: I can do zat! I can do zat!

Pavel Chekov: Ensign Authorization code: nine-five-wictor-wictor-two!
[Authorization is not recognized]

Christopher Pike: Russian whizkid, what's your name? Chanko? Cherpov?
Pavel Chekov: Ensign Chekov, Pavel Andreievich, sir.

Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Wait a minute, kid. How old are you?
Pavel Chekov: Seventeen, sir.
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Oh... oh, good, he's seventeen.
Spock: Doctor... Mr. Chekov is correct.

Kirk: [Bolts out of bed suddenly from being sedated] Lightning storm!
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Ah, Jim, you're awake. How do you feel?
[He looks down, suddenly growing alarmed]
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Good God, man!
Kirk: What? AH!
[He yelps and raises his hands, which are now twice their normal size]
Kirk: What the hell's this?
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: A reaction to the vaccine, dammit! Nurse Chapel, I need 50 cc's of cortizone!
Nurse Chapel: Yes, sir!
[He starts scanning Kirk while Kirk replays Chekov's message]
Pavel Chekov: [on the computer] ... appeared to be a lightning storm in space.
Kirk: Bones! We gotta stop the ship!
[He takes off running down the hall]
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: [running after him] Jim! I'm not kidding, you need to keep your heart rate down!
[he fumbles through a first aid kit while Jim accesses another computer console]
Kirk: Computer, locate crew member Uhura.
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: You know, I haven't seen a reaction this bad since med school!
Kirk: We're flying into a trap!
[He starts running again]
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy: Dammit, Jim, stand still!
[injects him yet again]
Kirk: [yelps in pain] OW! STOP THAT!
[he runs through the engine room, looking for Uhura]


Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989)
Kirk: Stand by to execute emergency landing plan... "B."
[a brief pause]
Chekov: What's emergency landing plan "B?"
Scotty: I don't have a clue.
Kirk: [on Comm system] "B" as in Barricade.
Scotty: He can't be serious.

Uhura: [Chekov and Sulu are lost in the woods of Yellowstone] Is there a problem, gentlemen?
Sulu: Uh, yes. We've been caught in a... we've been caught in a blizzard.
[Chekov blows on the communicator, simulating wind noises]
Chekov: And we can't see a thing. Request you direct us to the coordinates.
Uhura: My visual says sunny skies and seventy degrees.
Chekov: [stops blowing] Sulu, look. The sun's come out. It's a miracle.
Uhura: [over communicator] Don't worry, fellas. Your secret's safe with me. I'll sent a shutlecraft to pick you up.
Sulu: Uhura, I owe you one! Sulu out.

[hiking in the woods of Yellowstone]
Chekov: Admit it, we're lost.
Sulu: All right, we're lost. But we're making good time!
Uhura: [over communicator] Commander Sulu, come in please.
Sulu: I don't believe this! Commander Sulu here.
Uhura: Bad news, gentlemen. Shore leave's been canceled.
Chekov: [relieved] Rescued at last!
Uhura: Return to the pre-arranged coordinates for pickup.
Chekov: Don't tell them we're lost. We'll never live it down here.

Chekov: This is Captain Pavel Chekov speaking. You are in wiolation of Neutral Zone Treaty. I adwise you to release your hostages at once, or suffer the consequences.
Sybok: Your threats amuse me, Captain Chekov. What consequences did you have in mind?


"Star Trek: The Trouble with Tribbles (#2.15)" (1967)
Capt. Kirk: How close will we come to the nearest Klingon outpost if we continue on our present course?
Chekov: Ah, one parsec, sir. Close enough to smell them.
[grins broadly]
Spock: That is illogical, Ensign. Odors cannot travel through the vacuum of space.
Chekov: I was making a little joke, sir.
Spock: Extremely little, Ensign.

Scott: When are you gonna get off that milk diet, lad?
Chekov: This is vodka.
Scott: Where I come from, that's soda pop.
Scott: [raising his glass] Now this is a drink for a man.
Chekov: Scotch?
Scott: Aye.
Chekov: It was invented by a little old lady from Leningrad.

Korax: [the tribbles squeal as he pours some of his drink into Cyrano Jones' glass] The Earthers like those fuzzy things. Don't they?
Cyrano Jones: [accepts drink, laughs nervously] Oh, yes.
Korax: Well, frankly, I never liked Earthers. They remind me of Regulan bloodworms.
[the Klingons laugh]
Chekov: That cossack!
Scott: Easy, lad. You ought to be more forgiving.
Korax: Though... I just remembered. There is one Earth man who doesn't remind me of a Regulan bloodworm. That's Kirk. A Regulan bloodworm is soft, and shapeless. But Kirk isn't soft. Kirk may be a swaggering, overbearing, tin-plated dictator with delusions of godhood. But he's not soft.
Scott: [as Chekov gets up] Take it easy, lad. Everybody is entitled to an opinion.
[Chekov sits down]
Korax: That's right. And if I think that Kirk is a Denebian slime devil, well, that's my opinion, too.
Scott: [as Chekov gets up again] Don't do it, mister, and that's an order.
Chekov: But you heard what he called the Captain!
Scott: Forget it. It's not worth fighting for. We're big enough to take a few insults.
[swaps Chekov's empty glass with another]
Scott: Now, drink your drink.
[Chekov sits down and obliges]
Korax: Of course, I'd say that Captain Kirk deserves his ship. We like the Enterprise. We, we really do! That sagging, old rust bucket is designed like a garbage scow.
[Scotty's ears perk up]
Korax: Half the quadrant knows it; that's why they're learning to speak Klingoni!
Chekov: [outraged] Mr. Scott!
Scott: [to Korax] Laddie... don't ya think you should... rephrase that?
Korax: [in Scottish brogue] You're right. I should.
Korax: [normal voice] I didn't mean to say that the Enterprise should be hauling garbage. I meant to say that it should be hauled away AS garbage!
[Korax laughs. Scotty stands up, decks him, and a brawl ensues]

Capt. Kirk: [handing Chekov a container] Mr. Chekov, what do you make of this?
Chekov: Oh, quadrotriticale. I've read about this, but, er, I've never seen any before.
Capt. Kirk: Does everybody know about this wheat but me?
Chekov: Oh, not everyone, Captain. It's a Russian invention.


"Star Trek: Spock's Brain (#3.1)" (1968)
Captain James T. Kirk: Show us the three Class M planets, Mr. Chekov.
Chekov: The one on the left, number 3, it rates letter B on the industrial scale.
Captain James T. Kirk: Earth equivalent approximately... 1485.
Chekov: Yes, sir. Second planet Class M, number 4, rates letter G.
Captain James T. Kirk: The year 2030.
Sulu: But that ship, Captain, either was many years ahead of us, or it was the most incredible design fluke in history.
Captain James T. Kirk: Third Class M planet, Mr. Chekov?
Chekov: Number 6. No sign of industrial development. At last report, in a glacial age. Sapient life plentiful, but on a most primitive level.
Captain James T. Kirk: Now, as I understand it, Mr. Chekov, there are three Class M planets...
Chekov: Yes, sir.
Captain James T. Kirk: ...not one of which is capable of launching an interstellar flight...
Chekov: No, sir.
Captain James T. Kirk: ...yet one of them accomplished it.
Chekov: Yes, sir.
Captain James T. Kirk: Thank you, Mr. Chekov.

Captain James T. Kirk: Readout, Mr. Chekov.
Chekov: No structures, Captain. No mechanized objects that I can read, no surface consumption, no generation of energy. Atmosphere is perfectly all right, of course. Temperature, a high maximum of 40 - livable.
Captain James T. Kirk: [regarding Chekov] You have a thick skin.

Captain James T. Kirk: A dead and buried city... on a planet in a glacial age.
Chekov: And the male humanoid who doesn't know the meaning of the word "female".


"Star Trek: I, Mudd (#2.8)" (1967)
Captain Kirk: Well, opinions?
Chekov: I think we're in a lot of trouble.
Captain Kirk: That's a great help, Mr. Chekov. Bones?
McCoy: I think Chekov's right, we are in a lot of trouble.
Captain Kirk: Spock, and if you say we're in a lot of trouble...
Spock: We are.

Alice #1 through 250: You desire something else, lord?
Chekov: What a shame you're not real.
Alice #251 through 500: We are real, my lord.
Chekov: Oh, I mean 'real girls'.
Alice #1 through 250: We are programmed to function as human females, lord.
Chekov: You are?
Alice #1 through 250, Alice #251 through 500: [In unison] Yes, my lord.
Chekov: Harry Mudd programmed you?
Alice #1 through 250, Alice #251 through 500: [in unison] Yes, my lord.
Chekov: That unprincipled, evil-minded, lecherous, kulak, Harry Mudd programmed you?
Alice #1 through 250, Alice #251 through 500: [In unison] Yes, my lord.
Chekov: This place is even better than Leningrad.

Chekov: You know this man, Captain?
Captain Kirk: Oh, do I know him? Harcourt Fenton Mudd. Thief.
Harcourt Fenton Mudd: Oh, come now.
Captain Kirk: Swindler and con man.
Harcourt Fenton Mudd: Entrepreneur.
Captain Kirk: Liar and rogue.
Harcourt Fenton Mudd: Did I leave you with that impression?


"Star Trek: The Apple (#2.5)" (1967)
Yeoman Martha Landon: All this beauty, and now Mr. Hendorff dead, somebody watching us. It's frightening.
Chekov: [puts his arms around her] If you insist on worrying, worry about me. I've been wanting to get you in a place like this for a long time.
Capt. Kirk: Mr. Chekov, Lieutenant Landon. I know you find each other fascinating, but we're not here to conduct a field experiment in human biology.

Chekov: [appraising the planet] It makes me homesick. Just like Russia.
Dr. McCoy: More like the Garden of Eden, Ensign.
Chekov: Of course, Doctor. The Garden of Eden was just outside Moscow. A very nice place. Must've made Adam and Eve very sad to leave.

Mr. Spock: Mr. Chekov, your tricorder readings are totally inefficient!
Chekov: Uh, mind your own business! Uh, for your information I have a very high efficiency rating!
Mr. Spock: Ensign, I will not have you address me in that tone of voice!
Chekov: What do you want, violins?


"Star Trek: The Gamesters of Triskelion (#2.16)" (1968)
Chekov: You... You have been selected for me?
Tamoon: No. I am only your drill thrall. I have brought you nourishment.
[sits down next to him]
Tamoon: It is a nice name: Chee-koof.
Chekov: Heh, heh. Chekov.
Tamoon: Chee... koof? It is a very nice name.

Galt: You begin, Uhura.
Uhura: No!
Galt: It is not allowed to refuse a training exercise.
Uhura: I don't care whether it's allowed or not. I will not do it.
Captain James T. Kirk: None of us will do it, Galt.
Galt: It is part of your training. The Providers wish it.
Captain James T. Kirk: The devil with the Providers!
Chekov: Cossacks.

[Kirk releases Chekov from his cell]
Chekov: This is going to kill our romance.


"Star Trek: Spectre of the Gun (#3.6)" (1968)
Capt. Kirk: In the late nineteenth century in Arizona, two factions fought for control of the town Tombstone. The Earps - Morgan, Virgil and Wyatt - who were the town marshals, along with Doc Holliday.
Spock: And the Clanton gang. On October 26th, they... had it out.
Chekov: Who won?
Capt. Kirk: The Clantons lost, Mr. Chekov.
Chekov: And we... are... the Clantons?

Capt. Kirk: [as Sylvia kisses Chekov passionately] Um, Mr. Chekov?
Chekov: [slowly disengaging] What can I do, Keptin? You know we're always supposed to maintain good relations with the natives.

Melkotian Buoy: [voice] Aliens. You have encroached on the space of the Melkot. You will turn back immediately. This is the only warning you will receive.
Spock: Vulcan, Captain.
Capt. Kirk: English.
Chekov: It was Russian, sir. Every word.
Uhura: No, Captain, it was Swahili.
Capt. Kirk: Interesting. Telepathy.
Spock: Unquestionably. Most impressive.


Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984)
Sulu: The word, sir?
Kirk: The word is no. I am therefore going anyway.
Sulu: You can count our help, sir.
Kirk: Thank you, Mr. Sulu, I'll need it.
Chekov: Shall I alert Dr. McCoy?
Kirk: Please. He has a long journey ahead of him.

Scotty: [studying the Klingon Bird-of-Prey's helm] Where's the damn antimatter inducer?
Chekov: This?... no, *this*!
Scotty: That or nothing.
Sulu: If I read this right, sir, we have full power.
Kirk: [exasperated] Go, Sulu!

Kirk: Unit two, this is unit one. The Kobayashi Maru has set sail for the promised land. Acknowledge.
Chekov: [on communicator] Message acknowledged. All units will be informed.
McCoy: You're taking me to the promised land?
Kirk: What are friends for?


"Star Trek: Who Mourns for Adonais? (#2.2)" (1967)
Apollo: I am Apollo!
Ensign Pavel Chekov: [sarcastically] And I am the Czar of all the Russias!
Capt. Kirk: Mister Chekov!

Capt. Kirk: And you haven't yet.

Chekov: Sir, some creatures can generate and control energy with no harm to themselves: The electric eel on Earth, the giant dry worm of Antos 4, the fluffy...
Dr. McCoy: [interrupting] Not the whole encyclopedia, Chekov.
Chekov: The captain requires complete information.
Dr. McCoy: Spock's contaminating this boy, Jim.
Capt. Kirk: Are you suggesting that he, Apollo, taps a flow of energy and channels it through his body?
Chekov: That would seem most likely, sir.
Capt. Kirk: Mr. Chekov, I think you've earned your pay for the week.

Chekov: [Kirk is about to persuade Carolyn] Eh, perhaps if I assisted?
Capt. Kirk: How old are you?
Chekov: Twenty-two, sir.
Capt. Kirk: Then I'd better handle it.


"Star Trek: Friday's Child (#2.11)" (1967)
Scott: There's an old, old saying on earth, Mr. Sulu: "Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me."
Chekov: I know this saying. It was invented in Russia.
[smiles devilishly]

Chekov: Mr. Scott. Picking up something on the sensors, sir. Seems to be another ship.
Scott: Well, let's put it on the screen.
[screen reveals nothing]
Chekov: It's just at the edge of our sensor range, sir. Hard to get an exact reading.
Sulu: You think it's a Klingon ship?
Scott: Who else would be playing cat and mouse with a starship?

Scotty: On Earth, we have a saying: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
Chekov: I know this saying. It was invented in Russia.


Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979)
Lt. Pavel Chekov: No casualties reported, Doctor.
Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, M.D.: Wrong, Mr. Chekov. There are casualties: my wits!

Commander Willard Decker: [shouting] Don't interfere with it!
Lt. Pavel Chekov: Absolutely I will not interfere.


"Star Trek: The Lights of Zetar (#3.18)" (1969)
Chekov: I didn't think Mr. Scott would go for the brainy type.
Sulu: I don't think he's even noticed she HAS a brain.

Uhura: During the disturbance, Memory Alpha was hailing. I wanted to respond but I couldn't make my hand move.
Chekov: Captain. It was not hands that were paralyzed. It was eyes. I could not force my eyes to look down and set a new course.
Sulu: No. No, it was speech that was affected. I couldn't utter a sound.


Star Trek Beyond (2016)
Chekov: Proximity alert, sir. We have unknown ship heading right for us.

[last lines]
Captain James T. Kirk: [epilogue] Space: the final frontier.
Commander Spock: These are the voyages of the starship...
Montgomery 'Scotty' Scott: ...Enterprise. Its continuing mission...
Doctor 'Bones' McCoy: ...to explore strange new worlds...
Sulu: ...to seek out new life...
Chekov: ...and new civilizations...
Lieutenant Uhura: ...to boldly go where no one has gone before.


Star Trek: Generations (1994)
[Kirk is invited to give a command to the new Enterprise-B]
Kirk: Take us out.
Chekov: Very good, sir.
Scotty: Brought a tear to my eye.
Kirk: Oh, be quiet.

Chekov: I was never that young.
Kirk: No, you were younger.


"Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II: Blood and Fire: Part Two (#1.5)" (2009)
Kirk: There's an old saying: when you have a Klingon by the tail...
Chekov: Klingons have tails?

Chekov: It is... it is a sparkle dancer!


"Star Trek: The Tholian Web (#3.9)" (1968)
Chekov: Captain. Visual detection of an object dead ahead.
Capt. Kirk: How about it, Spock?
Mr. Spock: Fascinating.

Chekov: I don't understand what's so special about this region of space.
Mr. Spock: Picture it this way, Mr. Chekov: we exist in a universe which co-exists with a multitude of others in the same physical space. At certain brief periods of time, an area of their space overlaps an area of ours. That is the time of interphase, during which we can connect with the Defiant's universe.
Uhura: Mr. Spock? We WILL be able to retrieve the Captain at that time... won't we?
Mr. Spock: Yes. However, the dimensional structure of each universe is totally dissimilar. Any use of power disturbs it. If we are not extremely careful, we shall lose the Captain, and become trapped ourselves.


"Star Trek: Is There in Truth No Beauty? (#3.5)" (1968)
Chekov: A madman got us into this, and it's beginning to look as if only a madman can get us out.
Mr. Spock: An entertaining suggestion, Mr. Chekov, but not very helpful.

Chekov: Our position is so close to the point where we entered the void, the difference isn't worth mentioning. Bullseye, Mr. Spock.
Mr. Spock: Thank you, Mr. Chekov.


"Star Trek: The Enterprise Incident (#3.2)" (1968)
[first lines]
Dr. McCoy: [voice-over] Enterprise Medical Log, stardate 5027.3, Dr. Leonard McCoy recording. I'm concerned about Captain Kirk. He shows indications of increasing tension and emotional stress.
Chekov: I have completed the assignment, Captain: a theoretical incursion...
Captain James T. Kirk: Yes, Mr. Chekov, I can read, and as usual, your theoretical evaluations do not tally with mine. Return to your duty, and I'll let you know when your work is satisfactory. Mr. Spock, full sensor scan on the region, please.
Spock: I did give a full report on it just...
Captain James T. Kirk: Yes, Mr. Spock, that was the past. I'm concerned with the present.
Captain James T. Kirk: [to the Bridge crew] Or is it becoming too much for this crew to present me with current information?
Spock: No, sir. Compliance presents no problem.
Captain James T. Kirk: Then, Mr. Spock, comply.
Spock: Sensor scan to one-half parsec... Negative, Captain.
Captain James T. Kirk: Very well.
Dr. McCoy: [voice-over] I can find no reason for the Captain's behavior, except possibly that we've been on patrol too long without relief and diversion. He has resisted all of my attempts to run a psychological profile on him.
Sulu: Maintaining course and speed, sir.
Captain James T. Kirk: Change course. Come about to 185, mark 3.
Sulu: But sir, that'll lead us directly into the Romulan Neutral Zone.
Captain James T. Kirk: Yes, very perceptive, Mr. Sulu. I know where the course change takes us. Execute.
Sulu: Aye, sir.

Sulu: Captain!
Chekov: You're alive!
Uhura: They said you'd been killed, sir.
Captain James T. Kirk: The report was premature.
Chekov: Captain, your ears. What happened?
Captain James T. Kirk: We'll discuss it later. Mister Sulu, lay in a course for home. Mister Chekov, take the sensors. Mister Spock is still aboard the Romulan flagship. I want his body readings pinpointed and isolated. That was not a request, gentlemen.
Chekov: Aye, sir.
Sulu: Aye, sir.
Uhura: Aye, sir.


"Star Trek New Voyages: Phase II: Blood and Fire: Part One (#1.4)" (2008)
Mr. Spock: The red giant is named Lear after King Lear. The blue dwarf is Iago.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: Hm. Somebody didn't know their Shakespeare very well. A Russian wouldn't make that mistake.
Mr. Spock: It is a metafore, Mr. Chekov. The red giant is a very old star. The blue-white dwarf is pulling the fire out of it. It will take thousands of centuries, of course.

Lt. Cmdr. Montgomery Scott: Sleep, there's no such thing. It's just an old space tale like Sparkle dancers or Klingons with a heart of gold.
Lt. Pavel Chekov: No, I remember sleep. I did it once. You lie down and don't do anything for six hours. Wonderful.


"Star Trek: Day of the Dove (#3.7)" (1968)
Chekov: Filthy Klingon murderers! You killed my brother, Pyotr. The Archanis IV research outpost. A hundred peaceful people massacred! Just like you did here. My brother - you killed my brother!
Kang: And you volunteer to join him. That is loyalty.

[as Chekov is going after the Klingons armed with a sword, Kirk tries to hold him back]
Chekov: Don't try to stop me, Captain. I saw what they left of Pyotr. And I swore on his grave I would avenge his murder.
[enters the turbolift]
Sulu: What's Chekov's grudge against the Klingons? Who's... Pyotr?
Captain James T. Kirk: His only brother, killed in a Klingon raid.
Sulu: His brother? He never had a brother. He's an only child.


"Star Trek: Let That Be Your Last Battlefield (#3.15)" (1969)
Chekov: There was persecution on Earth once. I remember reading about it in my history class.
Sulu: Yes, but it happened way back in the twentieth century. There's no such primitive thinking today.


"Star Trek: Amok Time (#2.1)" (1967)
Sulu: How do you figure it, Chekov? First we're going to Vulcan, then we're going to Altair, then we're headed to Vulcan again, and now we're headed back to Altair.
Chekov: I think I'm going to get space sick.


"Star Trek: Bread and Circuses (#2.25)" (1968)
[last lines]
Spock: [referring to Flavius] I wish we could've examined that belief of his more closely. It seems illogical for a sun worshiper to develop a philosophy of total brotherhood. Sun worship is usually a primitive superstition religion.
Uhura: I'm afraid you have it all wrong, Mister Spock, all of you. I've been monitoring some of their old-style radio waves, the empire spokesman trying to ridicule their religion. But he couldn't. Don't you understand? It's not the sun up in the sky. It's the Son of God.
Capt. Kirk: Caesar - and Christ. They had them both. And the word is spreading... only now.
Dr. McCoy: A philosophy of total love and total brotherhood.
Spock: It will replace their imperial Rome; but it will happen in their twentieth century.
Capt. Kirk: Wouldn't it be something to watch, to be a part of? To see it happen all over again? Mister Chekov, take us out of orbit. Ahead warp factor one.
Chekov: Aye, sir.


"Star Trek: The Immunity Syndrome (#2.18)" (1968)
[the viewscreen is completely blank]
Chekov: Captain, the stars are gone!
Capt. Kirk: Malfunction, Mr. Spock?
Mr. Spock: Negative, Captain. All systems functioning properly.
Capt. Kirk: Then kindly tell me what happened to the stars.


"Star Trek: Mirror, Mirror (#2.4)" (1967)
Mirror Chekov: So you die, Captain, and we all move up in rank. No one will question the assassination of a captain who has disobeyed prime orders of the Empire.


"Star Trek: Catspaw (#2.7)" (1967)
DeSalle: Mr. Chekov, recalibrate your sensors. If you need help...
Chekov: I can do it, sir. I'm not that green.


"Star Trek: The Way to Eden (#3.20)" (1969)
Chekov: The flower, sir. I touched it. It's like fire.


"Star Trek: Turnabout Intruder (#3.24)" (1969)
Sulu: The captain really must be going mad if he thinks he can get away with an execution.
Chekov: Keptin Kirk wouldn't order an execution even if he were going mad. That cannot be the keptin.
Sulu: What difference does it make WHO he is? Are we gonna allow an execution to take place?
Chekov: If security backs him up, how will we fight him?
Sulu: I'll fight them every way and ANY way I can.


"Star Trek: The Mark of Gideon (#3.16)" (1969)
Mr. Spock: The planet is shielded from our sensors, therefore, we cannot scan it. Therefore, we are unable to select coordinates, they must be provided by Gideon.
Chekov: We should never have agreed to such restrictions.
Mr. Spock: We did not, Mr. Chekov, the Federation did. Lt. Uhura.
Uhura: Yes, Mr. Spock.
Mr. Spock: Contact Starfleet immediately, explain our problem, request permission to use every means at our disposal to press the search for Captain Kirk.
Uhura: At once, sir.
Chekov: Are there any other possibilities?
Mr. Spock: They are endless, Mr Chekov.
Dr. McCoy: Where do we start, Mr. Spock.
Mr. Spock: Institute a sensor scan 360 degrees, one degree at a time.
Dr. McCoy: You mean you're going to scan space for him?
Chekov: But, sir, that could take years.
Mr. Spock: Then the sooner you begin, the better.


"Star Trek: The Deadly Years (#2.12)" (1967)
Chekov: [darkly] Give some more blood, Chekov. The needle won't hurt, Chekov. Take off your shirt, Chekov. Roll over, Chekov. Breathe deeply, Chekov. Blood sample, Chekov. Marrow sample, Chekov. Skin sample, Chekov. If-if I live long enough, I'm going to run out of samples.
Sulu: You'll live.
Chekov: Oh, yes, I'll live, but I won't enjoy it.


"Star Trek: For the World Is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky (#3.8)" (1968)
Chekov: Course of asteroid - I mean spaceship - 241 mark 17.
