    KIRK: Then why are you afraid?

    (he embraces her)

    KIRK: Don't be afraid.

    Rayna: Stop Command. Stop!

    M4 ignores the command and purses them as it moves in for the kill on Kirk, Spock vaporizes it with his phaser.

    FLINT: M4 was programmed to defend this household and its members. No doubt I should have altered its instructions to allow for unauthorized but predictable actions on your part. It thought you were attacking Rayna. A misinterpretation.

    A New M4 enters

    Flint: Too useful a device to be without, really. I created another. It will now go to the laboratory and join Doctor McCoy.

    Flint: Be thankfull that you did not attack me, Captain. I might have accepted battle, and I have twice your physical strength.

    FLINT: How childish he is, Rayna. Would you call him brave or a fool?

    FLINT: Of course! Death, when unnecessary, is a tragic thing. Doctor McCoy's in the laboratory with the new ryetalyn. He's satisfied as to its quality. May I suggest that you wait here patiently, safely. You have seen that my defense systems operate automatically and not always in accordance with my wishes. Come, Rayna. Rayna! Come.

    (Rayna reluctantly tears herself away from Kirk, and they both leave)

    KIRK: I don't like the way he orders her around.

    Spock: Since we are dependent on Mister Flint for the ryetalyn, Captain, may I respectfully suggest that you pay less attention to the young lady if you should encounter her again. Our host's interests do not appear to be confined to art and science.

    KIRK: Jealousy. Yes, that would explain the attack, but he seemed to want us together. The billiard game. He suggested we dance.
