I'll catch heat for this (not just because it's a two-liner), but I still laugh at this...

"Mr. Spock, the women on your planet are logical. It is the only planet in the galaxy that can make that claim."

Yes, whenever I watch that episode and hear Kirk say that I kind of cringe and wonder how many female Trek fans didn't appreciate that line.

I can't help it. I have to post again....

Spock's Brain:

McCoy asks Kirk if noticed the delight aspects of the Sigma Draconis women.

Kirk : "Yes, I certainly did notice those delightful aspects."

So many... Two that stick are McCoy's:

"You mean I have to die to discuss your insights on death?"

"I know engineers. They love to change things."

Kirk to newly unemployed Lawgiver : "And you can get rid of those robes. If I were you, I'd start looking for another job."

Re: Your Favorite One-Liner From Any TOS Character

Hard to choose just one, so here are a few:

Kirk explaining Spock's ears to a 1930's policeman: "He caught his head in a mechanical rice picker." (City On The Edge Of Forever")

Spock to Matt Decker: "Vulcans never bluff." ("The Doomsday Machine")

Kirk to Spock, explaining Trick-or-Treat: "You'd be a natural." ("Catspaw")

Khan: "Captain, although your abilities intrigue me, you are quite honestly inferior. Mentally, physically."

That sentence is all one requires to understand Khan--not his past, or politics (or defense of both), but that one line. Of course, it also explains his (ultimately) destructive ego in "Space Seed" & TWOK.

The set-up from McCoy: "I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer."

Best line ever, from Kirk: "You're a healer, there's a patient. That's an order."

Gene Coon was a genius. Genius, I tell you!
