Chekov: This place is even better than Leningrad.
SCOTT: Absolutely fantastic. Handworked to the finest tolerances, microvision, and a nanopulse laser. I've never seen the like before.
Norman: You may command us to make anything for you, or do the work yourself for pleasure. You may have the services of any number of craftsmen, exclusive use of the computer facilities. Anything.
SCOTT: Captain, you should see this shop! Why, they have facilities we've never even thought of.
Kirk: Is that the way you're going to do it, Mudd? Hit my people at their weakest point?
NORMAN: We only wish to make you happy and comfortable, Captain. If we are to serve your kind, we must understand you. Our Lord, Harry Mudd, was only one example for us. Now we are learning a great deal from all of you.
Later in the living area...
Kirk: All right, here we are, birds in a gilded cage. The question is, how do we get out of it?
Chekov: I don't know sir, but it's a very nice gilded cage.
UHURA: And it is a very pleasant place, Captain.
Scotty: What did they offer you, Uhura?
UHURA: Oh, nothing really important. Just immortality.
Kirk: Alright. We're getting back to the ship, and don't you forget it. Straighten up! This may be a gilded cage filled with everything you always wanted, but it's still a cage. We don't belong here. We belong on that ship up there.
ALICE 471: Do you require something, lord?
KIRK: No. Yes. My ship.
Kirk: No. Yes! My ship!
Too slow again!
Alice 471: I am not programed....
ALICE and KIRK: ...to respond in that area.
Kirk: Yes, I know.
ALICE 471: Is there anything any of you require to please you?
Kirk: Alice, give us back our ship to please us. Return us to our ship because we desire it.
Alice 471: We are programmed to serve. We shall serve you to your best interests to make you happy.
