"Star Trek: What Are Little Girls Made Of? (#1.7)" (1966)
Dr. Roger Korby: Do you realize the number of discoveries lost because of superstition, of ignorance, a layman's inability to comprehend?

Captain James T. Kirk: [referring to Ruk] He's an android? Like Brown?
Ruk: More complex than Brown. Much superior. I was left here by the Old Ones.
Dr. Roger Korby: Ruk was still tending the machinery when we arrived here. How many centuries?
[Ruk remains silent]
Dr. Roger Korby: Even Ruk doesn't know. With his help, with the records I could find, we built Brown.
Captain James T. Kirk: You've convinced me, Doctor. You've convinced me that you are dangerous.
[pushes over a table and makes a run for it]

Dr. Roger Korby: Christine, you must realise an android is like a computer. It does only what I program. As a trained scientist yourself, you must realise...
Christine Chapel: That given a mechanical Dr. Brown, a mechanical geisha would be no more difficult?
Dr. Roger Korby: You think I could love a machine?
Christine Chapel: Did you?
Dr. Roger Korby: Andrea is incapable of that. She simply obeys orders.

Captain James T. Kirk: Well, there's one difference between us: I'm hungry.
Kirk Android: The difference is your weakness, Captain, not mine.
Dr. Roger Korby: One at a time, gentlemen. Captain?
Captain James T. Kirk: Eating is a pleasure, sir. Unfortunately one you will never know.
Kirk Android: Perhaps. But I will never starve, sir.

Dr. Roger Korby: You might as well try to outthink a calculating machine.
Captain James T. Kirk: Obviously I can't.

Dr. Roger Korby: Can you imagine how life could be improved if we could do away with jealousy, greed, hate?
Captain James T. Kirk: It can also be improved by eliminating love, tenderness, sentiment. The other side of the coin, Doctor.

Captain James T. Kirk: Agreed, Doctor. However, there will be two of us.
Christine Chapel: Hello, Roger.
Dr. Roger Korby: [over intercom] Christine?
Christine Chapel: Yes, Roger.
Dr. Roger Korby: Darling, how - where are you? Yes, yes, by all means, Captain. I - I had no idea, no hope. Darling, are you all right?
Christine Chapel: Yes, Roger. Everything's all right now.
Captain James T. Kirk: We're on our way, Doctor. We'll be with you in a moment. Enterprise out.

Andrea: I do not understand. Why are you unhappy? You are with Roger again.
Christine Chapel: Where is Captain Kirk?
Andrea: You are concerned about the Captain?
Christine Chapel: Yes, I am concerned.
Andrea: How can you love Roger without trusting him? Why does it bother you when I use the name Roger?
Dr. Roger Korby: Andrea, it's sufficient that it does disturb her. You will call me Dr. Korby from now on, Andrea.
Andrea: Yes, Dr. Korby.

Dr. Roger Korby: I need time to explain and demonstrate to him and you. Shall we start with Andrea?
Christine Chapel: Yes, let's start with Andrea.

Andrea: I'm like Dr. Brown - an android. Didn't you know?
Dr. Roger Korby: Remarkable, isn't she? Notice the lifelike pigmentation, the variations in skin tones. The flesh - the flesh has warmth. There's even a pulse. Physical sensation.
Christine Chapel: [sarcastically] How convenient.
Dr. Roger Korby: Christine, you must realize an android is like a computer. It does only what I program. As a trained scientist yourself, you must realize...
Christine Chapel: That given a mechanical Dr. Brown, a mechanical geisha would be no more difficult.
Dr. Roger Korby: You think I could love a machine?
Christine Chapel: Did you?
Dr. Roger Korby: Andrea's incapable of that.

Dr. Roger Korby: It's still me, Christine. Roger. I'm in here. You can't imagine how it was. I was frozen, dying. My legs were gone. I was... I had only my brain between life and death. This can be repaired, easier than another man can set a broken finger. I'm still the same as I was before, Christine, perhaps even better.
Christine Chapel: Are you, Roger?

Dr. Roger Korby: Christine, Christine, let me prove myself. Does this make such a difference?
Christine Chapel: [voice breaking] Don't you see, Roger? Everything you've done has proved it isn't you.
Dr. Roger Korby: I am Roger Korby!
Captain James T. Kirk: Then prove it. Give me that phaser gun. If there's any human left in you, give it to me.
