"Star Trek: Elaan of Troyius (#3.13)" (1968)
Captain James T. Kirk: Your Glory doesn't seem to be responding to instruction.
Elaan: I will never forgive the council for putting me through this torture! Were you responding to my demand for better quarters?
Captain James T. Kirk: There are none better. I suggest you make do with these.
Elaan: You SUGGEST?
[She grabs a pillow angrily]
Captain James T. Kirk: There are no more available, but if that's the only way you can get gratification, I'll arrange to have the whole room filled from floor to ceiling with breakable objects.
Elaan: I will not be humiliated!
Captain James T. Kirk: Then act in a civilized fashion.
Elaan: I did not give you permission to leave!
Captain James T. Kirk: I didn't ask for any.
Elaan: [screams while pounding a pillow in frustration] OOOOOOH!
[Kirk walks out]
Ambassador Petri: [in corridor] Captain, I wish to contact my government. I cannot fulfill my mission. It would be an insult to our ruler to bring this incorrigible monster as a bride!
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!

Ambassador Petri: If I recover, it will be no thanks to you, Captain.
Captain James T. Kirk: I said talk with her, not fight with her.

Nurse Christine Chapel: Ambassador, if Elasian women are that vicious, why are men so overwhelmingly attracted to them? I mean, what magic do they possess?
Ambassador Petri: It's not magic, it's biochemical. A man whose flesh is once touched by the tears of a woman of Elas has his heart enslaved forever.

Captain James T. Kirk: [after the ambassador's friendly overtures to Elaan have been rebuffed] You're as bad as she is. It's not required that you like each other; just do your job.
Ambassador Petri: The job - the job is impossible. We cannot make peace with people we detest.
Captain James T. Kirk: Stop trying to kill each other, then worry about being friendly.
