William Shatner: Kirk
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!
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.
[Shoots 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" : [shoots Spock with lightning; then addresses McCoy] Do you doubt me?
McCoy : I doubt any God who inflicts pain for his own pleasure.
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.
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".
Spock : "T".
Kirk : "A"... "N"... "D", end of word.
McCoy : "Stand".
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?
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 sing-a-long.
Kirk : I've always known I'll die alone.
[Around a campfire 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.
Kirk : Understand your situation, are unable to return to planet. Stand by to execute emergency landing plan... "B."
[Everyone in the shuttle stares at Kirk in confusion, and Spock mouths, "B?" Aboard the Enterprise:]
Chekov : What's emergency landing plan "B?"
Scotty : I don't have a clue.
Kirk : [over comm] "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]
Computer : Le-le-level?
Kirk : Bridge... I hope. I could use a shower.
Spock : [looks at Kirk] Yes.
Spock : This is a new brig, Captain. It is escape-proof.
Kirk : How do you know?
Spock : The designers tested it, using the most intelligent and resourceful person they could find. He failed to escape.
Kirk : This person... he didn't by any chance have pointed ears, and an unerring capacity for getting his shipmates into trouble, did he?
Spock : He did have pointed ears.
Kirk : [to "God"] Excuse me... Excuse me... I just wanted to ask a question. What does God need with a starship?
Kirk : Spock, my only concern is getting the ship back. When that's done and Sybok is in here, then you can debate Sha-Ka-Ree until you're green in the face.
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 : The feeling's mutual. Engine room.
Scotty : [over the intercom] 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.
[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!
Kirk : [to Spock, while being strangled by Sybok] PICK IT UP!
[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]
Starfleet Chief of Staff : Now, I know the Enterprise isn't exactly up to specs...
Kirk : With all due respect, the Enterprise is a disaster! There must be other ships in the quadrant.
Starfleet Chief of Staff : Other ships, yes. But no experienced commanders. Captain... I need Jim Kirk.
Kirk : [under his breath] Oh, please.
Starfleet Chief of Staff : Your orders are to proceed to Nimbus III, assess the situation, and avoid a confrontation if possible. But above all, however, get those hostages back safely.
Kirk : Have the Klingons responded?
Starfleet Chief of Staff : No, but you can bet they will.
Sybok : Sha-Ka-Ree... the source... Heaven... Eden... call it what you will. The Klingons call it "Qui-Tu". For the Romulans it's "Vorta Vor". The Andorian word is... is unpronouncable. Still, every culture in this galaxy shares this common dream of a place from which creation sprang. For us, that place will soon be reality.
Kirk : The only reality I see is that I'm a prisoner on my own ship. What is this power you have to control the minds of my crew?
Sybok : I don't control minds. I free them.
Spock : [sampling McCoy's baked beans] Mmm... surprisingly good. It does have a flavoring I'm not familiar with.
McCoy : Ah-ha, that's the secret ingredient.
Kirk : Got any more of that secret ingredient, Bones?
McCoy : [hands Kirk a bottle] Help yourself.
Spock : Am I to understand, Doctor, that your secret ingredient is alcohol?
McCoy : Whiskey, Tennessee whiskey, Spock. Care for a little snort?
