    FLAVIUS: Long ago there were rebellions, but they were suppressed. And with each century, the slaves acquired more rights under the law. They received rights to medicine, the right to government payments in their old age, and they slowly learned to be content.

    SPOCK: Even more fascinating. Slavery evolving into an institution with guaranteed medical payments, old-age pensions.

    MCCOY: Quite logical, I'd say, Mister Spock. Just as it's logical that twentieth-century Rome would use television to show its gladiator contests or name a new car the Jupiter Eight.

    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.

    KIRK: I'm not sure they're sure. When the slaves began to worship the sun, they became discontent again. When did all this happen?

    FLAVIUS: Long ago. Perhaps as long ago as the beginning of the empire. The message of the sun, that all men are brothers, was kept from us. Perhaps I'm a fool to believe it. It does often seem that man must fight to live.

    KIRK: (looking at McCoy) I doubt if he'll get very far. He feels ill.

    KIRK: All right, but he'll double over before we get very far. (Spock and Kirk take McCoy's arms.)
