: [reciting a poem she has written
] Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?/Thou art more lovely and more temperate/Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May/And summer's lease hath all... Garth
] You wrote that? Marta
: Yesterday, as a matter of fact. Garth
: It was written by an Earthman named Shakespeare a long time ago! Marta
: Which does NOT alter the fact that I wrote it again yesterday!
: Why can't I blow off just one of his ears? Garth
: Stop that, Marta. Mr. Spock will think you're lacking in hospitality.
: I may have you beaten to death. Marta
: No, you won't, because I am the most beautiful woman on this planet. Garth
: You're the only woman on this planet, you stupid cow!
: Gentlemen, you have eyes... but you cannot see! Galaxies surround us, limitless vistas, and yet the Federation would have US grub away like some ants on some... somewhat larger than usual anthill. But I am not an insect! I am master of the universe and I must claim my domain.
: On you knees before me! All the others before me have failed: Alexander, Caesar, Napoleon, Hitler, Lee Kuan, Krotus. All of them are dust!
: [after fumbling around with a high explosive
] How are your nerves, Kirk? Captain James T. Kirk
: All I can say, Garth: if it happens to me, it happens to you.
: They were humanitarians and statesmen, and they had a dream, a dream that became a reality and spread throughout the stars, a dream that made Mr. Spock and me brothers. Garth
: Mr. Spock, do you consider Capt. Kirk and yourself brothers? Capt. Kirk
: Capt. Kirk speaks somewhat figuratively and with undue emotion; however, what he says is logical, and I do, in fact, agree with it.
: Silence! The chatter of inferior weaklings wearies me.
: [as Marta dances
] Marvelous, isn't she, Captain? Capt. Kirk
: Yes, uh... incredible. Garth
: What is your reaction, Mr. Spock? Mr. Spock
: Well, I find it, um... mildly interesting and somewhat nostalgic, if I understand the use of that word. Garth
: Nostalgic? Mr. Spock
: Yes, it is somewhat reminiscent of the dances that Vulcan children do in nursery school.
: How could you, a starship fleet captain, believe that a Federation crew would blindly obey your order to destroy the entire Antos race, a people famous for their benevolence and peaceful pursuits? Garth
: That was my only miscalculation.
: You do refuse to enter into the spirit of the thing, don't you, Captain? Perhaps you'd like a larger role in the ceremony. You could serve as human sacrifice, for example. Capt. Kirk
: No, I wouldn't enjoy that at all.
: Marta, my dear, won't you dance for our guests. Captain James T. Kirk
: That's very magnanimous of you. Garth
: Well, you'll find that I am magnanimous to friends and merciless to enemies. And, I want you, both of you, to be my friends. Mr. Spock
: On what precisely is our friendship to be based? Garth
: Well, upon the firmest of foundations, Mr. Spock: enlightened self interest.
