Romulan Commander: I neglected to mention. I'll expect you for dinner. We have much to discuss.
Spock: Indeed.
Romulan Commander: Allow me to... to rephrase. Will you join me for dinner?
Spock: I am honored, Commander. Are the guards also invited?

Captain James T. Kirk: What earns Spock your special interest?

Romulan Commander: There's no force that I can use on a Vulcan that will make him speak. That is a fact. But there are Romulan methods completely effective against Humans, and Human weaknesses.

Romulan Commander: Then they will leave him dead. Or what might be worse than dead.

Romulan Commander: Or is it that no one has offered you, a Vulcan, that opportunity?
Spock: Such opportunities are extremely rare.

Spock: That thought has occasionally crossed my mind.

Romulan Commander: Romulan women are not like Vulcan females. We're not dedicated to... pure logic, and the sterility of non-emotion. Our people are warriors. Often savage. But we are also many other pleasant things.

Romulan Commander: Of course. It's expected.

Romulan Commander: Why would you do this to me? What are you that you could do this?
Spock: First Officer of the Enterprise.
[the Romulan commander realizes that Spock has betrayed her and slaps him]
Spock: [dispassionately] What is your present form of execution?

Spock: It is regrettable that you were made an unwilling passenger. It was not intentional. All the Federation wanted was the cloaking device.

Spock: It was my only interest when I boarded your vessel.
Romulan Commander: And that's exactly all you came away with.
Spock: You underestimate yourself, Commander.

Spock: It was the only choice possible. You would not respect any other.
