Alice 210: But I'm identical in every way with Alice 27.
Spock: Yes, of course. That is exactly why I hate you. Because you are identical. (The android's badges blink, then go steady, then they freeze, and cease to function) Fascinating.
MCCOY: All right, it's worked so far, but we're not out yet.
Spock: Success, Captain. We've been pruning the leaves and branches of the tree. Now it is time to get to work on the root.
KIRK: If Norman is the control center, he should be in a bind by what we've done. If we can overload him further, we should be able to immobilize all of them. Does everybody remember what to do?
McCoy: Aye, Sir.
Norman: What are you doing here?
Kirk: I want you to surrender.
Norman: That is illogical. We can move more quickly than you. We are invulnerable to attack. We are much stronger.
Kirk: No, we are stronger, and I'll prove it to you. Can you harm a man you're programmed to serve?
Mudd: But you already have, Norman, laddy. Human beings do not survive on bread alone, you poor soulless creature, but on the nourishments of liberty, for what indeed is a man without freedom? Naught but a mechanism trapped in the cogwheels of eternity.
McCoy: (in a robotic voice) You offer us only well being.
Scotty: (in a monotone) Food and drink and happiness mean nothing to us. We must be about our job.
McCoy: (in an android voice) Suffering in torment and pain. Laboring without end.
Scotty: Dying and crying and lamenting over our burdens.
BOTH: Only this way can we be happy.
