Kirk: Galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young, Doctor.
Spock: As a matter of cosmic history, it has always been easier to destroy than to create.
David: Scientists have always been pawns of the military!
Kirk: I would not presume to debate you.
Spock: That is wise. Were I to invoke logic, however, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
Kirk: Or the one.
Spock: You are my superior officer. You are also my friend. I have been and always shall be yours.
Kirk: How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life, wouldn’t you say?
Spock: He is intelligent, but not experienced. His pattern indicates two dimensional thinking.
Kirk: Scotty, I need warp speed in three minutes or we’re all dead!
Spock: The Kobayashi Maru scenario frequently wreaks havoc on students and equipment. As I recall you took the test three times yourself. Your final solution was, shall we say, unique?
Kirk: It had the virtue of never having been tried.
Kirk: I don’t believe in the no-win scenario.
Saavik: He’s so…human.
Spock: Nobody’s perfect, Saavik.
Kirk: I suppose you’re about to remind me that logic alone dictates your actions?
Spock: I would not remind you of that which you know so well.
Kirk: We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this: of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most…human.
Saavik: Humor. It is a difficult concept.
Kirk: Khan, I’m laughing at the superior intellect.
Saavik: Any suggestions, Admiral?
Kirk: Prayer, Mr. Saavik. The Klingons don’t take prisoners.
