Bashir: They broke seven of your transverse ribs and fractured your clavicle.
Garak: But I got off several cutting remarks which no doubt did serious damage to their egos.

Always my favorite, from Bones: "In this galaxy, there's a mathematical probability of three million Earth-type planets. And in all of the universe, three million million galaxies like this. And in all of that and perhaps more, only one of each of us. Don't destroy the one named Kirk."
You beat me to it. This is my favorite line in all of Trek. As a gay teen contemplating suicide in the mid-1970s, it spoke to me as nothing else ever has.

I think that's wonderful - just shows how important Star Trek has been . . . still is I'd say.
I'm very glad you made it through and are still here.
And some people say there's no quality to Star Trek. But I've found often that those people are the same who tend to demean others.

"What am I a doctor or a moon shuttle conductor? If I jumped everytime a light came on around here, I'd end up talking to myself." -- To which McCoy is doing just that; talking to himself.

I started rooting for Garak in DS9 after he said that.

For me, too. And De Kelley's delivery of this speech was just sublime.

Another favorite, from Charlie X, when Kirk tells Charlie: "There are a million things you can have in this universe and a million things that you can't have. It's no fun facing that, but that's the way things are!"

From STID:

Spock: I am expressing multiple attitudes simultaneously. To which are you referring?

Kirk: Mr. Chekov, did you break my ship?

Re: Best Trek Quotes Thread

Here's a great conversation concerning the transporter.

Pulaski: Captain, if this hadn't worked? If...

Picard: It would have been necessary to beam your energy into empty space.

Pulaski: Why should I be concerned about having my atoms spread across the galaxy? I imagine that's what's going to happen every time I get into the damn thing.

How about this one which sums up Spock and Kirk

Edith Keeler to Spock: "You? At his side. As if you've always been there and always will. "

I actually liked Pulaski a lot more than Crusher. Maybe it's because I started watching TNG during the second season, but although she's a poor man's McCoy, she has more personality than Beverley, who basically never did anything except being the ship's doctor.

Didn't Pulaski save Picard's life? But I digress.

^^^That actually is a pretty powerful quote. It shows just how pathetic and desperate that character is.
