Quotes

Kirk: [46:41] Scotty, you're as good as your word.

Scotty: Aye, sir. The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.

[giving McCoy a handful of computer chips]

Scotty: Here, Doctor, souvenirs from one surgeon to another. I took them out of her main transwarp computer drive.

McCoy: Nice of you to tell me in advance.

Kirk: That's what you get for missing staff meetings, Doctor. Gentlemen, your work today has been outstanding and I intend to recommend you all for promotion... in whatever fleet we end up serving.

Sarek: Kirk, I thank you. What you have done is...

Kirk: What I have done, I had to do.

Sarek: But at what cost? Your ship. Your son.

Kirk: If I hadn't tried, the cost would have been my soul.

[last lines]

Captain Spock: My father says that you have been my friend. You came back for me.

Kirk: You would have done the same for me.

Captain Spock: Why would you do this?

Kirk: Because the needs of the one... outweigh the needs of the many.

Captain Spock: [begins to remember] I have been and ever shall be your friend.

Kirk: Yes. Yes, Spock.

Captain Spock: The ship... out of danger?

Kirk: You saved the ship. You saved us all. Don't you remember?

Captain Spock: Jim... your name is Jim.

Kirk: How much refit time 'til we can take her out again?

Scotty: Eight weeks, sir. But ye don't have eight weeks, so I'll do it for ye in two.

Kirk: Mr. Scott. Have you always multiplied your repair estimates by a factor of four?

Scotty: Certainly, sir. How else can I keep my reputation as a miracle worker?

Kirk: Your reputation is secure, Scotty.

Uhura: Would you look at that.

Kirk: My friends, the great experiment: The Excelsior. Ready for trial runs.

Sulu: She's supposed to have transwarp drive.

Scotty: Aye. And if my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon.

Kruge: Speaking? Let me hear it.

Saavik: My lord, we are survivors of a doomed expedition. This planet will destroy itself in hours. The Genesis experiment is a failure.

Kruge: A failure? The most destructive force ever created? You will tell me the secret of the Genesis torpedo.

Saavik: I have no knowledge.

Kruge: Then I hope pain's something you enjoy.

Saavik: Only one thing, sir. Get him off this planet. His aging is part of what's going on around us.

Vulcan High Priestess: Sarek! Child of S'kon, child of So'kar! The body of your son breathes still. What is your wish?

Sarek: I ask for fal tor pan: the refusion.

Vulcan High Priestess: What you seek has not been done in ages past and then, only in legend. Your request is not logical.

Sarek: Forgive me, T'layr. My logic is uncertain where my son is concerned.

Vulcan High Priestess: Who is the keeper of the katra?

McCoy: I am. McCoy, Leonard H, son of David.

Vulcan High Priestess: McCoy, son of David, since thou art human, we cannot expect thee to fully comprehend what Sarek has requested. Spock's body lives: with your approval, we shall use all our powers to return to his body that which you possess.

Vulcan High Priestess: But McCoy, you must now be warned. The danger to thyself is as grave as the danger to Spock. You must make the choice.

McCoy: I choose the danger. Hell of a time to ask.

Uhura: Peace and quiet appeals to me, Lieutenant.

Mr. Adventure: Well, maybe that's okay for someone like you, whose career is winding down. But me, I need some excitement, some adventure... maybe even just a surprise or two.

Uhura: Well, you know what they say, Lieutenant. Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.

Uhura: This isn't reality.

Kirk: USS Enterprise Captain's Personal Log: With most of our battle damage repaired we're almost home. Yet I feel uneasy and I wonder why? Perhaps it is the emptiness of this vessel. Most of our training crew have been reassigned. Lt. Saavik and my son David are exploring the Genesis planet which he helped create and Enterprise feels like a house with all the children gone. No more empty even then that. The death of Spock is like an open wound. It seem that I have left the most noblest part of myself back there on that newborn planet.

Sarek: Spare me your human platitutes, Kirk. I have been to your government and I've seen the Genesis information and your report.

Kirk: Then you know how bravely your son met his death.

Sarek: Why did you leave him on Genesis? Spock trusted you! and you denied him his future.

Kirk: I saw no future.

Sarek: Only his body was in death, Kirk! and you were the last one to be with him.

Kirk: Yes! I was.

Sarek: And you must know that you should had to come with him to Vulcan.

Kirk: But - why?

Sarek: Because he asked you too! He entrusted you! With his very esscence. With everything that was not of the body. He asked you to bring him to us and to bring that which he gave you. His Katra. His living spirit.

Kirk: Sir. Your son meant to me more than you could know. I would had given my life if I could save his. Believe me when I tell you, he made no request of me.

Sarek: He would not had spoken of it openly.

Admiral Morrow: Now, wait a minute. This business about Spock and McCoy; honestly, I never understood Vulcan mysticism.

Kirk: You don't have to believe. I'm not even sure that I believe. But if there's even a chance that Spock has an eternal soul, then it's my responsibility.

Admiral Morrow: No, Jim! The Enterprise would never stand the pounding and you know it.

Kirk: Then I'll find a ship. I'll hire a ship.

Admiral Morrow: Out of the question, my friend. The council has ordered that no one but the science team goes to Genesis. Jim, your life and your career stand for rationality, not for intellectual chaos. Keep up this emotional behavior and you'll lose everything. You'll destroy yourself. Do you understand me, Jim?

Kruge: Admiral Kirk, this is your opponent speaking. Dot not lecture me about treaty violations. The Federation, in creating an ultimate weapon, has become a gang of intergalactic criminals. It is not I who will surrender. It is you. On the planet below, I have three prisoners from the team who developed your doomsday weapon. If you do not surrender immediately, I will execute them one at a time as enemies of galactic peace!

Kirk: Who is this? How dare you take prisoners?

Kruge: Who I am is not important. That I have them is.

Sulu: Don't call me tiny.

Saavik: We have reached the destination planet at .035.

Captain Esteban: Very well, Lieutenant. Helm, execute standard orbital approach.

Helm: Standard orbit. Aye, sir.

Captain Esteban: Communications. Send a coded message for Starfleet Commander, priority 1. "Federation science vessel Grissom arriving Genesis Planet, Mutara sector, to begin research. J.T. Esteban, commanding."

Communications: Aye, sir. Coding now.

Captain Esteban: Dr. Marcus, it's your planet.

David Marcus: Begin scanning, please.

[whispering in her ear]

David Marcus: This is where the fun begins, Saavik.

Saavik: Just like your father; so human.

Saavik: It's time for total truth between us. This planet is not what you intended or hoped for, is it?

David Marcus: Not exactly.

Saavik: Why?

David Marcus: I used protomatter in the Genesis matrix.

Saavik: Protomatter. An unstable substance which every ethical scientist in the galaxy has denounced as dangerously unpredictable.

David Marcus: It was the only way to solve certain problems.

Saavik: So, like your father, you changed the rules.

David Marcus: If I hadn't, it might have been years or never.

Saavik: How many have paid the price for your impatience? How many have died? How much damage have you done? And what is yet to come?

Admiral Morrow: You've all done remarkable service under the most difficult conditions. You'll be receiving Starfleet's highest commendation, and more importantly, extended shore leave. That is, all but you, Mr. Scott. They need your wisdom on the new Excelsior. Report there tomorrow as captain of Engineering.

Scotty: With all appreciation, sir, I'd prefer to supervise the refit of Enterprise.

Admiral Morrow: I'm afraid that won't be necessary.

Scotty: But, sir...

Admiral Morrow: I'm sorry, Mr. Scott, but there will be no refit.

Kirk: Admiral. I don't understand. The Enterprise is not...

Admiral Morrow: Jim, the Enterprise is 20 years old. We feel her day is over.

Kirk: But we had requested... we'd hoped to take her back to Genesis.

Admiral Morrow: That is out of the question.

Kirk: May I ask why?

Admiral Morrow: In your absence, Genesis has become a galactic controversy. Until the Federation Council makes policy, you are all under orders not to discuss with anyone your knowledge of Genesis. Consider it a quarantined planet and a forbidden subject.

Chekov: Admiral? This is not possible.

Kirk: Mr. Chekov?

Chekov: An energy reading from C deck, from... inside Mr. Spock's quarters.

Kirk: I ordered Spock's quarters sealed.

Chekov: Yes, sir. I sealed the room myself. Nevertheless, I am reading a life form there.

Kirk: This entire crew seems on the edge of obsessive behavior concerning Mr. Spock.

Uhura: Sir, security reports the door to Spock's quarters has been forced.

Kirk: I'm on my way.

Kirk: Scotty, progress report.

Scotty: It's almost done, sir. You'll be fully automated by the time we dock.

Kirk: Your timing is excellent, Mr. Scott. You fixed the barn door after the horse has come home.

David Marcus: I don't believe it.

Captain Esteban: What is it?

Saavik: If equipment is functioning properly, indications are an animal life-form.

Captain Esteban: You said there wouldn't be any.

David Marcus: There shouldn't be any.

Saavik: Cross-referenced and verified. An unidentifiable life-form reading.

Communications: Do you wish to advise Starfleet, sir?

Captain Esteban: Wait a minute. We don't know what we're talking about here.

David Marcus: Why don't we beam it up?

Captain Esteban: Oh, no, you don't. Regulations specifically state nothing shall be beamed aboard until danger of contamination has been eliminated.

Saavik: Captain, the logical alternative is obvious. Beaming down to the surface is permitted.

Captain Esteban: If the captain decides that the mission is vital and reasonably free of danger.

David Marcus: Captain, please, we'll take the risk, but we've got to find out what it is.

Saavik: Or who.

David Marcus: There are your life-forms. These were microbes on the tube's surface. We shot them here from Enterprise. They were fruitful and multiplied.

Saavik: But how could they have evolved so quickly?

David Marcus: [opening the tube] Saavik?

[taking out and handing her a black cloak]

David Marcus: What is it?

Saavik: Spock's burial robe.

Saavik: I give two minutes for you and your gallant crew
