Archer: You looking forward to seeing Earth?
TUCKER: Sure. I just didn't think I'd be seeing it so soon.
Archer: This time, we won't be leaving before we're ready.
Tucker: Are your ears a little pointier than usual?
ARCHER: I never said we didn't belong out here. I just wish we'd have launched with all our systems online, especially weapons.
TUCKER: If we hadn't launched when we did, they'd have sent Klaang back to Kronos in a box.
ARCHER: I keep reminding myself of that. But I rushed us out of Spacedock because I had something to prove and I risked the lives of 81 humans, a Vulcan, and a Denobulan to do it.
TUCKER: Don't forget Porthos.
TUCKER: In the old days, astronauts rode rockets with millions of liters of hydrogen burning under their seats. You think they said, gee I'd love to go to the moon today but it seems a little risky? I think if you asked anyone on board whether they thought this mission was worth the risk you'd get the same answer from every one of them.
ARCHER: Let me know when we're ready to go to warp.
TUCKER: Aye, sir.

TUCKER: Have you still got those guns of yours hooked up to the impulse engines?
REED: I'm just disconnecting them now.
TUCKER: Hang on a minute. You're sure this'll work?
Reed: Yes, Commander, I am.
TUCKER: Then based on the recommendation of the Armoury officer, the Chief Engineer finds the level of risk acceptable.
REED: In that case, if the Chief Engineer wouldn't mind getting his hands dirty, I could use some help.
Captain's starlog, September 1, 2151. It's been two days now with no sign of the alien vessel.
Archer: My crew has managed to do in forty eight hours what would've taken the armoury team at Jupiter Station at least a week. To say that I'm proud of them would be an understatement. We're preparing our first test. Everybody has their fingers crossed, including me.
Archer: (referring to crater pocked asteroid on viewscreen) You're sure there's nothing down there?
T'POL: Yes, Captain.
