You're so stolid! You weren't like that before the beard.

That's not what he said, farm boy. "Admiral, if we were to assume those whales are ours to do with as we please, we would be as guilty as those who caused..." -- past tense! -- "...their extinction." I have a photographic memory. I see words.

Unreal. Appearances only. They are shadows. Illusions. Nothing but ghosts of reality. They are lies. Falsehoods. Specters without body. They are to be ignored.

"Oh, on the Starship Enterprise There's someone who's in Satan's guise, Whose devil's ears and devil's eyes Could rip your heart from you! At first his look could hypnotize, And then his touch would barbarize. His alien love could victimize... And rip your heart from you! And that's why female astronauts Oh very female astronauts Wait terrified and overwrought To find what he will do. Oh girls in space, be wary, be wary, be wary! Girls in space, be wary! We know not what he'll do."

No, sir, I shall not withdraw a single charge that I have made. You are NOT Captain Kirk. You have ruthlessly appropriated his body, but the life entity within you is not that of Captain Kirk. You do NOT belong in charge of the Enterprise, and I shall do everything in my power against you.

One of my favorite Star Trek lines actually came from an SNL skit:

"Bones, we need your help, this woman is choking to death!"
"Dammit, Jim! I'm a doctor, not a... oh, right."

Dr. McCoy: Do you know what you get if you feed a tribble too much?

Capt. Kirk: A fat tribble.

Dr. McCoy: No. You get a whole bunch of hungry little tribbles.

Capt. Kirk: Well, Bones, all I can suggest... is you open up a maternity ward.
