Rayna: Flint is my teacher. You are the only other men I've ever seen.
MCCOY: The misfortune of men everywhere, and our privilege.
Flint: If you would accompany my robot to the laboratory, Doctor, you can rest assured that the ryetalyn is being processed.
McCoy: Thank you Sir.
Flint: Your pleasure, gentlemen. Chess, billiards, conversation?
Kirk: Why not all three?
Spock: Captain, the crew is dying up there...
Kirk: Quiet Spock, I've got a good feeling about this game of billiards!
(M4 leads McCoy into a lab, then disappears through a door. McCoy examines the large colored jars on a table whilst M4 works behind an opaque window)
(Rayna sends the cue ball around all four cushions to hit both reds. Billiards)
Kirk: Did you teach her that?
FLINT: We play often.
RAYNA: May I show you, Captain?
KIRK: You said something about savagery, Mister Flint. When was the last time you visited Earth?
FLINT: You would tell me that it is no longer cruel. But it is, Captain. Look at your starship, bristling with weapons. Its mission to colonize, exploit, destroy, if necessary, to advance Federation causes.
(Rayna guides Kirk's shot, but he misses anyway)
KIRK: Thank you. Our missions are peaceful, our weapons defensive. If we were barbarians, we would not have asked for ryetalyn. Indeed, your greeting, not ours, lacked a certain benevolence.
FLINT: The result of pressures which are not your concern.
KIRK: Yes, well, those pressures are everywhere in everyone, urging him to what you call savagery. The private hells, the inner needs and mysteries, the beast of instinct. As human beings, that is the way it is. To be human is to be complex. You can't avoid a little ugliness from within and from without.
Flint: Why don't you play the waltz Mister Spock? To be human is also to seek pleasure, to laugh, to dance. Rayna is a most accomplished dancer.
KIRK: May I have the pleasure?
(So the couple do an old-fashioned waltz as Spock plays)
In the lab, M4 brings McCoy vials for inspection
McCoy returns to Kirk who is still dancing with Rayna
Kirk: Is something wrong?
MCCOY: Yes, there's something wrong. The ryetalyn is no good. It contains irillium, nearly one part per thousand.
Spock: Irillium will render the antitoxin inert and useless.
Spock: Irrilium will make the antitoxin inert and useless.
