Episode Quotes


Halkan Leader: "You do have might to force the crystals from us, of course."
James T. Kirk: "But we won't. Consider that."
Mirror Spock: "One man cannot summon the future." 
James T. Kirk : "But one man can change the present."
Mirror Spock: "I do not want to command the Enterprise, but if it should befall 
me, I suggest that you remember that my operatives would avenge my 
death.....and some of them.....are Vulcans."
McCoy: "I'm a doctor, not an engineer."
Scott : "Now you're an engineer."
Kirk: "Conquest is easy. Control is not."
Spock: "May I point out that I had an opportunity to observe your 
counterparts here quite closely. They were brutal, savage, 
unprincipled, uncivilized, treacherous -- in every way, splendid 
examples of homo sapiens. The very flower of humanity. I found 
them quite refreshing."
Kirk: "I'm not sure, but I think we've been insulted."
McCoy: "I'm sure."
  McCoy: (talking about Spock) "Jim, I think I liked him with a beard 
better. Gave him character. Of course, almost any change would be 
a distinct improvement."
  Kirk: "If change is inevitable, predictable, beneficial, doesn't 
logic demand that you be a part of it? One man cannot summon the 
future. But one man can change the present. Be the Captain of this 
Enterprise, Mr. Spock. Find a logical reason for sparing the 
Halkans and make it stick. Push till it gives. You can defend 
yourself better than any man in the fleet."
Kirk: "What are you doing here?"
Marlena: (stretching) "Oiling my traps, darling."
