KIRK: The Horta is intelligent, peaceful, mild. She had no objection to sharing this planet with you, till you broke into her nursery and started destroying her eggs. Then she fought back in the only way she knew how, as any mother would fight when her children are in danger.

Van der Berg: We didn't know. How could we? You mean if these eggs hatch, there'll be thousands of those things crawling around down here?

KIRK: Yes, I know. Here's your circulating pump. You've complained this planet is a mineralogical treasure house if you had the equipment to get at it. Gentlemen, the Horta moves through rock the way we move through air, and it leaves tunnels. The greatest natural miners in the universe. It seems to me we could make an agreement, reach a modus vivendi. They tunnel. You collect and process, and your process operation would be a thousand times more profitable.

SPOCK: Except for one thing: the Horta is badly wounded. It may die.

MCCOY: It won't die. By golly, Jim, I'm beginning to think I can cure a rainy day.

Re: "The Devil in the Dark'' Line-by-Line

MCCOY: Well, I had the ship beam down a hundred pounds of that thermo-concrete. You know, the kind we use to build emergency shelters out of. It's mostly silicone. So I just troweled it into the wound, and it'll act like a bandage until it heals. Take a look. It's as good as new.

Kirk: Well Mr. Spock, I'm going to have to ask you to get in touch with the Horta again. Tell her our proposition. She and her children can do all the tunneling they want, our people will remove the minerals, and each side will leave the other alone. Do you think she'll go for it?

SPOCK: It seems logical, Captain. The Horta has a very logical mind. And after close association with humans, I find that curiously refreshing.
