Elaan: You are warned, Captain, never to touch me again!
Captain James T. Kirk: If I touch you again, Your Glory, it'll be to administer an ancient Earth custom called a spanking, a form of punishment administered to spoiled brats!

Captain James T. Kirk: Ambassador! AMBASSADOR! This is supposed to be a peaceful mission.
Ambassador Petri: There cannot be peace between us. We have deluded ourselves! Captain, when I am near them, I do not want peace; I want to KILL them!

Elaan: Remember me.
Captain James T. Kirk: I have no choice.
Elaan: [crying] Nor have I. I have only responsibilities and... obligations.

Elaan: [chuckles] Tell me, what can you teach me?
Captain James T. Kirk: Table manners, for one thing!

Elaan: You will return me to Elas immediately.
Captain James T. Kirk: That's impossible.
Elaan: Everything I order is possible.

Elaan: Captain, there is one thing you can teach me.
Captain James T. Kirk: No, no, you were right the first time: there's nothing I can teach you; there's nothing you do not know.
Elaan: I don't know how to make people like me.

Elaan: [to Scott] Engines are for mechanics and menials.

Captain James T. Kirk: Well, we're still faced with the same problem.

Elaan: I have eliminated that problem.
Captain James T. Kirk: You've eliminated the teacher; the problem still remains.

Elaan: You dare touch a member of the royal family?
Captain James T. Kirk: Only in self-defence. Now, are you gonna behave or not?
