Sybok: Shakari... the source... Heaven... Eden... call it what you will. The Klingons call it "Kuitu". For Romulans it's "Vortavor". The Andorian word is... is unpronouncable.
Kirk: What does God need with a starship?
McCoy: Jim, what are you doing?
Kirk: I'm asking a question.
"God": Who is this creature?
Kirk: Who am I? Don't you know? Aren't you God?
Sybok: He has his doubts.
"God": You doubt me?
Kirk: I seek proof.
McCoy: Jim! You don't ask the Almighty for his ID!
"God": Then here is the proof you seek.
[Hits Kirk with lightning]
Kirk: Why is God angry?
Sybok: Why? Why have you done this to my friend?
"God": He doubts me.
Spock: You have not answered his question. What does God need with a starship?
"God": [hits Spock with lightning; then addresses McCoy] Do you doubt me?
McCoy: I doubt any God who inflicts pain for his own pleasure.
McCoy: We were speculating. Is God really out there?
Kirk: Maybe he's not out there, Bones. Maybe he's right here.
[points to his heart]
Kirk: Human heart.
[from deleted scene]
Korrd: [says something in Klingon]
Caithlin Dar: What did he say? Tell me his exact words!
St. John Talbot: He said, the only thing he wants *you* to open is your blouse.
Caithlin Dar: Well, you can tell Counsel Korrd that - never mind. I'll tell him myself, in the only Klingon I know.
Caithlin Dar: [says something in Klingon]
Korrd: [lets out a long growl] SCREW YOU, TOO!
Caithlin Dar: He *does* speak English!
Spock: [Kirk clings precariously to El Capitan] I do not believe you realize the gravity of your situation.
Kirk: [Almost slips; a rock drops] Gravity was foremost on my mind.
Kirk: What is this power you have to control the minds of my crew?
Sybok: I don't control minds. I free them.
Kirk: Damn it, Bones, you're a doctor. You know that pain and guilt can't be taken away with a wave of a magic wand. They're the things we carry with us, the things that make us who we are. If we lose them, we lose ourselves. I don't want my pain taken away! I need my pain!
Spock: [after Kirk has fallen off El Capitan] Perhaps "because it is there" is not sufficient reason for climbing a mountain.
Kirk: I am hardly in a position to disagree.
[see McCoy running toward him]
Kirk: Hi, Bones! Mind if we drop in for dinner?
Kirk: I've always known I'll die alone.
Kirk: Mr. Scott, you're a miracle!
Scotty: There's no miracle about it. I know this ship like the back of my hand.
[walks into low-hanging beam, knocks himself out cold]
Kirk: Excuse me... Excuse me... I just wanted to ask a question. What does God need with a starship?
[Around camp fire singing "Row Row Row your Boat"]
Kirk: Come on. Spock... Why didn't you jump in?
Spock: I was trying to comprehend the meaning of the words.
McCoy: It's a song, you green-blooded... Vulcan. You sing it. The words aren't important. What's important is that you have a good time singing it.
Spock: Oh, I am sorry Doctor. Were we having a good time?
McCoy: God I liked him better before he died.
Spock: Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons.
J'Onn: Where did you get this power?
Sybok: The power was within you.
J'Onn: I feel as if a weight has been lifted from my heart. How can I repay you for this miracle?
Spock: Join my quest.
J'Onn: What is it you seek?
Sybok: What you seek. What all men have sought since time began. Ultimate knowledge.
Kirk: I ordered you to defend your ship!
Spock: You ordered me to kill my brother.
Kirk: The man may be a fellow Vulcan, but that doesn't mean...
Spock: No, you do not understand. Sybok is also a son of Sarek.
Kirk: You mean he's your BROTHER brother?
Kirk: You made that up.
Spock: I did not.
Kirk: You did too. Sybok couldn't possibly be your brother because I happen to know for a fact you don't HAVE a brother.
Spock: Technically, you are correct. I do not have a brother.
Kirk: There, you see? See?
Spock: I have a half-brother.
Kirk: ...I gotta sit down.
Spock: I've lost a brother.
Kirk: I had lost a brother once. Would you like to hear how I got him back?
McCoy: I thought you said men like us don't have families.
Kirk: I was wrong.
Kirk: Stand by to execute emergency landing plan... "B."
[a brief pause]
Chekov: What's emergency landing plan "B?"
Scotty: I don't have a clue.
Kirk: [on Comm system] "B" as in Barricade.
Scotty: He can't be serious.
Scotty: [to Kirk about ship status] Ah. All I can say is they don't make them like they used to.
Kirk: You told me you could get this ship operational in two weeks, I gave you three, what happened?
Scotty: I think you gave me TOO much time, Captain.
Kirk: Very well, Mr Scott. Carry on.
Scotty: Aye, sir.
[Spots a junior engineer nearby]
Scotty: How many times do I have to tell you, the right tool for the right job!
McCoy: [laughs] I don't think I've ever seen him happier.
[They enter the turbolift]
Kirk: Bridge... I hope.
McCoy: Jim... if you ask me, and you haven't, I think this is a terrible idea. We're bound to bump into the Klingons, and they don't exactly like you.
Kirk: Feeling's mutual.
[Chief Engineer Scott making a log entry]
Scotty: USS Enterprise, shakedown crew's report. I think this new ship was put together by monkeys. Oh, she's got a fine engine, but half the doors won't open, and guess whose job it is to make it right.
Kirk: Damn it Spock, goddamn it!
Spock: Captain, what I have done?
Kirk: What you have done is betrayed every man on the ship.
Spock: Worse, I have betrayed you. I do not expect you to forgive me.
Kirk: Forgive you? I ought to knock you on your goddamned ass.
Spock: If you think it would help?
McCoy: You want me to hold him, Jim?
Kirk: You stay out of this!
Sybok: Spock. It's me. It's Sybok. After all these years you've finally caught up with me. Don't you have anything to say to me?
Spock: You are... under arrest. For seventeen violations of the Neutral Zone Treaty.
Kirk: I miss my old chair.
Kirk: Spock, we're on leave you can call me 'Jim'.
Kirk: Yes, Spock?
Spock: Life... is not a dream.
Kirk: Go to sleep, Spock.
Sybok: Your pain runs deep.
J'Onn: What do you know of my pain?
Sybok: Let us explore it... together. Each man hides a secret pain. It must be exposed and reckoned with. It must be dragged from the darkness and forced into the light. Share your pain. Share your pain with me... and gain strength from the sharing.
Kirk: Spock, my top priority right now is to regain control of the ship. After that, you can debate Shakari until you're green in the face.
Spock: This is a new brig, Captain. Completely escape-proof. To guarantee that, they used the most intelligent, most resourceful person they could find. He was unable to escape.
Kirk: This person didn't happen to have pointed ears, and a propensity for getting his shipmates in trouble, did he?
Spock: He did have pointed ears.
Dr McCoy: All that time in space, getting on each other's nerves. And what do we do when shore leave comes along? We spend it together. Other people have families.
Kirk: Other people, Bones. Not us.
Uhura: [Chekov and Sulu are lost in the woods of Yellowstone] Is there a problem, gentlemen?
Sulu: Uh, yes. We've been caught in a... we've been caught in a blizzard.
[Chekov blows on the communicator, simulating wind noises]
Chekov: And we can't see a thing. Request you direct us to the coordinates.
Uhura: My scanners show clear skies and 70 degrees.
Chekov: [stops blowing] Sulu, look. The sun's come out. It's a miracle.
Kirk: Go to bed, Spock. Good night, Bones.
McCoy: Good night, Jim.
Spock: Good night, doctor.
McCoy: Good night, Spock.
Spock: Good night, captain.
Kirk: [to himself] ... I don't know... I just don't know...
Kirk: [responds to a tapping within the wall] What's that noise?
Spock: [tapping continues] I believe it is a primitive form of communication known as morse Code.
Kirk: You're right. I'm out of practice.
Kirk: That's an "S".
Kirk: "A"... "N"... "D", end of word.
Kirk: New word... "B"... "A"...
Spock: "C"... "K".
McCoy: "Back". "Stand back".
[the wall explodes]
Scotty: [on the other side of the wall] What are you standing around for? Do you not know a jailbreak when you see one?
Bones: [in response to Spock carrying Kirk while wearing jet-boots] You two go on ahead, I'll wait for the next car.
Sybok: The people of your world once believed the world was flat. Columbus proved it was round. They said the sound barrier could never be broken!... It was broken. They said warp-speed could not be accomplished.
Spock: [the Enterprise is being attacked by Klaa] General, I am in need your assistance.
Korrd: *My* assistance?
Spock: You are his superior officer.
Korrd: I am a foolish old man.
Spock: Damn you, sir. You will try.
Scotty: [cursing, on his back trying to fix a computer console] "Let's see what she's got," said the captain. And then we found out, didn't we?
Uhura: [walking in] I know you'll whip her into shape, Scotty, you always do.
Scotty: [getting up] Uhura, I thought you were on leave.
Uhura: And I thought we were supposed to be going together.
Scotty: Oh, I can't leave her now when she needs me the most.
Uhura: [stroking Scotty's cheek] I had a feeling you would say something like that, so I brought us...
[whipping up two packages]
Scotty: [grabbing a package] Oh, lassie. You're the most understanding woman I know.
Starfleet Officer: [transmission on a malfunctioning computer] Red-Red-Red Alert. Red Alert. Red-Red-Red Alert.
Scotty: I just fixed that damn thing! Turn it off, will you?
Kirk: Engine room!
Scotty: Scotty here.
Kirk: We'll need all the power you can muster, mister.
Scotty: Don't you worry, Captain. We'll beat those Klingon devils, even if I have to get out and push.
Kirk: I hope it won't come to that, Mr. Scott.
Kirk: All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer by.
Spock: ...John Maysfield.
McCoy: Are you sure about that?
Spock: I am well-versed in the classics, Doctor.
McCoy: Then how come you don't know "Row, Row, Row Your Boat?"
[Kirk and McCoy agree to let Spock carry them up the shaft using rocket boots, only for the trio to float downwards]
Spock: It appears we're too heavy.
Kirk: Must be all those marshmallows.
[after Sybok relinquishes command of the Enterprise, Kirk decides to take Sybok, Spock and McCoy to the planet]
Kirk: Well, don't just stand there. God's a busy man!
St. John Talbot: And tell me, Miss Dar, how did you end up stuck here, in the armpit of the galaxy?
Caithlin Dar: I volunteered.
St. John Talbot: Volunteered?
[Relays this to General Korrd in Klingon, and the two burst with laughter]
Vulcan: Your son, Ambassador Sarek.
Young Sarek: ...So human.
Vulcan: Sarek, your son.
Sarek: ...So human.
Spock: [shakes his head] Sybok has failed. I resolved this pain... long ago.
Sybok: [whispering] Spock.
[the room darkens, Spock begins to turn]
Sybok: Spock...! I must go! Now!
Spock: [childlike voice] Sybok? Wait!
Sybok: I can't. They've banished me!
Spock: Take me with you!
Sybok: No. You've chosen the Vulcan way.
Spock: I want to go with you!
Sybok: It's not possible. I'm a heretic. I'm an enemy of the people. It would be dangerous for you.
Spock: But where will you go?
Sybok: Where I can be free. Where I can prove I'm right! I will find Sha Ka Ree.
[a long silence]
Sulu: [hiking near Mount Rushmore] I still think I should have gone to Yosemite with the Captain.
Chekov: What's the difference? You've seen one national park, you've seen them all.
"God": [appearing as Sybok, laughing] What's the matter? Don't you like this face? I have so many, but this one suits you best.
Sybok: No...! It's not possible...
[hiking in the woods of Yellowstone]
Chekov: Admit it, we're lost.
Sulu: All right, we're lost. But we're making good time!
[eating a campfire dinner]
Spock: Bipodal seeds, Doctor?
McCoy: Beans, Spock. But no ordinary beans. These are from a special Southern recipe handed down by my father. And if you stick your Vulcan nose up at these, you're not only insulting me, but generations of McCoys.
Spock: In that case, I have little choice but to sample your beans.
Caithlin Dar: Gentlemen, I'm Caithlin Dar.
St. John Talbot: Ah, yes. Our new Romulan representative. Welcome to Nimbus III, so called 'Planet of Galactic Peace.' I'm St. John Talbot, and this is our Klingon consul, Korrd.
Korrd: [belches loudly]
Caithlin Dar: I expect that's Klingon for 'hello.'
Kirk: [to Spock, while being strangled by Sybok] PICK IT UP!
Sybok: I thought weapons were forbidden on this planet. Besides, I can't believe you'd kill me for a field of empty holes.
J'Onn: It's all I have.
[around a campfire]
Kirk: [to Spock] Are you just gonna sit there and pluck that thing? Or are you gonna play something?
Spock: [starts playing]
Kirk: What are you doing?
Spock: I am preparing to toast a marsh melon.
McCoy: Well, I'll be damned. A marsh melon. Where'd you learn to do that?
Spock: Before leaving the ship, I consulted the computer library to familiarize myself with the customs associated with "camping out."
McCoy: Well, tell me, Spock. What do you do after we toast the marsh - er, marsh melons?
Spock: We consume them.
McCoy: I know we consume them. I mean after that.
Spock: Oh. I believe we are required to engage in a ritual known as the "singalong."
Sybok: What are you doing?
Kirk: In order to lower and re-raise the shields as quickly as possible, we're going to forego the tractor beam, and fly her in manually.
Sybok: How often have you done this?
Sulu: [smiles] Actually, it's my first attempt.
Adm. Robert Bennett: Now, I know the Enterprise isn't exactly up to standards...
Kirk: With all due respect Admiral, the Enterprise is a disaster! There must be other ships in the quadrant.
Adm. Robert Bennett: Other ships, yes. But no experienced commanders. Captain... I need Jim Kirk.
Kirk: [under his breath] Oh, please.
Adm. Robert Bennett: Your orders are to proceed to the Neutral Zone. Avoid confrontation if possible. But at all costs, get the hostages out safely.
Kirk: Have the Klingons responded?
Adm. Robert Bennett: No, but you can bet they will.
[Chekov and Sulu are lost while hiking in Yellowstone, Uhura has just contacted them]
Uhura: Bad news gentlemen... shore leave's been canceled.
Chekov: [to Sulu] Rescued at last!
McCoy: [McCoy is watching Kirk climb a mountain] "You'll have a great time, Bones. You'll enjoy your shore leave. You'll relax." You call this relaxing? I'm a nervous wreck. I'm not careful, I'll end up talking to myself.
Kirk: Damn it Spock! God damn it!
Spock: Captain, what have I done?
Kirk: What you've done is betray every man on this ship!
Spock: Worse I've betrayed you. I do not expect you to forgive me.
Kirk: Forgive you? I oughta knock you on your goddamned ass!
Spock: If you think it would help.
McCoy: Do you want me to hold him, Jim?
Kirk: You stay out of this! Why, Spock, why? All you had to do is pull the trigger!
Spock: If I had done that Sybok would be dead.
Kirk: I ordered you to defend your ship!
Spock: You ordered me to kill my brother.
Kirk: But the man may be a fellow Vulcan but he...
Spock: No, no you do not understand. Sybok also is a son of Sarek.
Kirk: You mean he's your "brother" brother?
Kirk: You made that up.
Spock: I did not.
Kirk: You did too! Sybok couldn't possibly be your brother because I happen to know for a fact that you don't have a brother.
Spock: Technically you are right I do not have a brother.
Kirk: There! You see?
Spock: I have a half-brother.
Kirk: I gotta sit down.
Korrd: [to Kirk] Kirk, my *junior* officer has something he wishes to say to you.
[growls an order in Klingon]
Capt. Klaa: I... apologize.
Korrd: [growls another order in Klingon]
Capt. Klaa: [sheepishly] The attack on your vessel was not authorized by my government.
Uhura: [arriving to pick up Kirk from shore leave] Captain, we've received important orders from Starfleet Command.
Kirk: Why didn't you just beep my communicator?
Uhura: You 'forgot' to take it with you.
Kirk: Oh... I wonder 'why' I did that?
Kirk: Why does God need a starship?
Caithlin Dar: Twenty years ago, our three governments agreed to develop this planet together. A new age was born.
St. John Talbot: Our new age died a quick death. The settlers we conned into coming here, they were the dregs of the galaxy. They immediately took to fighting amongst themselves. We forbade them weapons, and they soon began to fashion their own.
