Quote of the Day

Kirk: Do you know the one, ‘All I ask is a tall ship’? 

McCoy: It’s a line from a poem. A very old poem, isn’t it? 

Kirk: 20th century Earth. ‘All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer her by’. You could feel the wind at your back in those days. The sounds of the sea beneath you. And even if you take away the wind and the water, it’s still the same. The ship is yours. You can feel her. And the stars are still there, Bones.

Quote of the Day

Scotty: I found this on Ganyroom, er, Ganymeer… mede. 

Tomar: What is it? 

Scotty: Well, it’s, er… (peers at it, sniffs it) …it’s green.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 21 — “By Any Other Name”

Quote of the Day

Kirk: Key in the ignition. Turn the ignition on. And nothing happens. Where’s the starter? There’s the starter. Yes! 

Spock: Interesting. 

Kirk: Oops! Gears. 

Spock: Yes. Oh. I believe they had a device known as a clutch. Clutch, Captain. Perhaps one of those pedals on the floor. 

Kirk: I kind of like this. I’m going to get one myself. 

Spock: Captain, you are an excellent starship commander, but as a taxi driver you leave much to be desired. 

Kirk: It was that bad? 

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 20 — “A Piece of the Action”

Quote of the Day

McCoy: The odds are not good.

Spock: No. I would say approximately four hundred…

McCoy: Don’t quote odds and don’t give me any more dispassionate logic, Mister Spock. Just keep looking for them. 

Spock: I would welcome a suggestion, Doctor, even an emotional one, as to where to look. 

McCoy: First time you’ve ever asked me for anything, and it has to be an occasion like this.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 17 — “The Gamesters of Triskelion”

Quote of the Day

Spock: Doctor, if I were able to show emotion, your new infatuation with that term would begin to annoy me. 

McCoy: What term? Logic? Medical men are trained in logic, Mister Spock. 

Spock: Really, Doctor, I had no idea they were trained. Watching you, I assumed it was trial and error. 

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 14 — “Bread and Circuses”

Quote of the Day

McCoy: What’s the matter, Spock? 

Spock: There’s something disquieting about these creatures. 

McCoy: Don’t tell me you’ve got a feeling. 

Spock: Don’t be insulting, Doctor. They remind me of the lilies of the field. They toil not, neither do they spin. But they seem to eat a great deal. I see no practical use for them. 

McCoy: Does everything have to have a practical use for you? They’re nice, soft, and furry, and they make a pleasant sound. 

Spock: So would an ermine violin, but I see no advantage in having one. 

McCoy: It’s a human characteristic to love little animals, especially if they’re attractive in some way. 

Spock: Doctor, I am well aware of human characteristics. I am frequently inundated by them, but I’ve trained myself to put up with practically anything. 

McCoy: Spock, I don’t know too much about these little tribbles yet, but there’s one thing that I have discovered. 

Spock: What is that, Doctor? 

McCoy: I like them… better than I like you. 

Spock: Doctor? 

McCoy: Yes? 

Spock: They do have one redeeming characteristic. 

McCoy: What’s that? 

Spock: They do not talk too much. If you’ll excuse me, sir.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 13 — “The Trouble with Tribbles”

Quote of the Day

Spock: Its trilling seems to have a tranquilizing effect on the Human nervous system. Fortunately, of course… I am immune… to its… effect.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 13 — “The Trouble with Tribbles”

Quote of the Day

Chekov: Give us some more blood, Chekov. The needle won’t hurt, Chekov. Take off your shirt, Chekov. Roll over, Chekov. Breathe deeply, Chekov. Blood sample, Chekov. Marrow sample, Chekov. Skin sample, Chekov. If I live long enough, I’m going to run out of samples. 

Sulu: You’ll live. 

Chekov: Oh, yes. I’ll live, but I won’t enjoy it.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 11 — “The Deadly Years”

Quote of the Day

Kirk: Scotty, can you do it? 

Scotty: Not by myself. I’ll need help. And you’d be too conspicuous. 

McCoy: I’m a doctor, not an engineer. 

Scotty: Now you’re an engineer.

Star Trek — Season 2: Episode 10 — “Mirror, Mirror”

Quote of the Day

Kirk: Bones, did you ever hear of a doomsday machine? 

McCoy: No. I’m a doctor, not a mechanic.
