Kirk: Physician, heal thyself.
McCoy: Is that’s all you gotta say? What about my performance?
Kirk: I’m not a drama critic… Well, Mister Saavik, are you going to stay with the sinking ship?
Saavik: Permission to speak candidly, sir?
Saavik: I don’t believe this was a fair test of my command abilities.
Kirk: And why not?
Saavik: Because… there was no way to win.
Kirk: A no-win situation is a possibility every commander may face. Has that never occurred to you?
Saavik: No sir. It has not.
Kirk: How we deal with death is at least as important as how we deal with life, wouldn’t you say?
Saavik: As I indicated, Admiral, that thought had not occurred to me.
Kirk: Well, now you have something new to think about. Carry on.
McCoy: Admiral? Wouldn’t it be easier to just put an experienced crew back on the ship?
Kirk: Galloping about the cosmos is a game for the young, Doctor.
Uhura: Now what is that supposed to mean?
