    McCoy: The only possible answer would conclusively prove that I'm either unconscious or demented. This looks like old Earth, around 1920 or 25.

    Edith: I have a friend that talks about Earth the same way that you do. Would you like to meet him?

    EDITH: I hope it means (she stumbles on the step and Kirk catches her, while Spock watches.) Oh! How stupid! I've been up and down those stairs a thousand times. I could have broken my neck.
