Gentlemen, your work today has been outstanding and I intend to recommend you all for promotion... in whatever fleet we end up serving.

Kirk

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?

Lieutenant Saavik

The needs of the one outweighed the needs of the many.

Kirk

[to an unconscious Spock] I'm gonna tell you something that I... never thought I'd ever hear myself say. But it seems I've... missed you. And I don't know if I could stand to lose you again.

McCoy

Shakari... the source... Heaven... Eden... call it what you will. The Klingons call it "Kuitu". For Romulans it's "Vortavor". The Andorian word is... is unpronouncable.

Sybok

Kirk: What is this power you have to control the minds of my crew?
ybok: I don't control minds. I free them.

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

I've always known I'll die alone.

Kirk

Spock: He reminds me of someone I knew in my youth.
Bones: Why, Spock, I didn't know you had one.

Excuse me... Excuse me... I just wanted to ask a question. What does God need with a starship?

Kirk

Please Captain, not in front of the Klingons.

Spock

USS Enterprise, shakedown crew's report. I think this new ship was put together by monkeys. Oh, she's got a fine engine, but half the doors won't open, and guess whose job it is to make it right.
