Worst lines of dialogue in the entire series?
 
I'd like to know what you think are the worst lines of dialogue (for writing OR delivery) in the entire series. Here are some of my own nominations...

“Personally, I find the lady's taste questionable, but she obviously prefers you, and you obviously don't seem to mind.”

"He ran in, said you wanted us on the bridge."

"Gonna crack my knuckles and jump for joy ! Got a clean bill of health from Dr. McCoy!"

"Do you say you will fight me?"

Can't find fault with this one. It was supposed to sound goofy.

"I'm talking to Mr. Spock! Don't you understand!!!...I've got it! The disease! Love....blah blah blah...have you noticed her Mr. Spock? You're allowed to notice. Blah blah blah"

And this after Nimoy gets like three minutes for his scene. Shatner (whether by choice or not) gets...45 seconds?

Though "no beach to walk on" is okay.

"No, BLAH BLAH BLAH!"

"Somebody beaming down from the bridge."

"Brain and brain, what is brain?!"

"When I came aboard!!!" (the second use)

"What's happening to Lt. You-hear-rah!"

"Captain's log, stardate...armageddon."

In "The Ultimate Computer", when Kirk is in his cabin talking to McCoy.

"Unnuhununuhhh..."

Cracks me up every time. Even though it's Shatner's unique acting and not a real line.

Shat doesn't need 3 minutes. He can... speedthroughanydialogue, even, allowing... pauses... for, dramaticeffect.

The ... impostor had some ... interesting qualities, wouldn't you say, Yeoman?- Spock, to Rand in 'The Enemy Within'- There just is no way to make that comment come out remotely sane, much less good. Rand should have hauled off and belted him.

Here's one from "Patterns of Force":

SPOCK: Your uniform, Captain.
KIRK: Yes, it's a shame yours isn't as attractive as mine. Gestapo, I believe.
SPOCK: Quite correct. You should make a very convincing Nazi.


If Spock only had the uniform in mind, wouldn't he have said "IT should make a very convincing Nazi."?

It's a joke. It's one of the funniest lines in the series.

Spock got tons of practice in human insult humor while sparring with McCoy.

First one the comes to mind . . . "Double Red Alert!"

"Captain, I'm frightened".

"Captain, what'll we do?!!?"

But that line is the only good thing I like in the whole eps.
