KIRK: But we're unhappy here.
Alice 471: Explain "unhappy."
Spock: Unhappiness is the state which occurs in the human when wants and desires are not fulfilled.
Alice 471: Which wants and desires of yours are not being fulfilled?
KIRK: We want the Enterprise.
(Alice's label flashes.)
Alice 471: The Enterprise is not a want or a desire. It is a mechanical device.
KIRK: No, it's a beautiful lady, and we love her.
Alice 471: Illogical. Illogical. All units relate. All units. Norman, co-ordinate. Unhappiness does not relate. We must study this.
KIRK: Bones, have you had time to take any psychological readings of the androids?
McCoy: I did. And you can forget it. They're perfect, flawless, mentally and physically. No weaknesses, perfectly disciplined. No vices, no fears, no faults. Just a sense of purpose. Believe me, there's nothing tougher to overcome, even among humans.
Kirk: Yes, that's what this crew needs, a little sense of purpose.
Later in the throne room, Mudd is joyfully shaking the hands of androids when Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty, Uhura and Chekov enter.
Kirk: Mudd, I have a few questions for you.
Mudd: Afraid I won't have time to answer them. My bags are all packed. The androids will take the Enterprise out of orbit in less than twenty four hours. But it's been a real pleasure having you here, Kirk. Is there anything I can get for you?
KIRK: Yes. My ship.
Mudd: You're a stubborn fellow, aren't you? But I don't mind. I don't mind that at all. Because I'll be leaving here quickly enough, and then you can be stubborn at your own leisure. One last time. Stella, dear.
(The Stella android begins to awaken and looks toward Harry)
Stella Mudd: mmmmmmmmm........Harcourt Fenton Mudd, where have you been?! What have you been up to?! Have you been drinking again, you miserable sot! You good-for-nothing.......!
Harry Mudd: Shut up!
Stella: Thing, thing, thing.
Mudd: Alice number 2, my little love. Will you have my bags transported to the ship?
