    SPOCK: Fascinating is a word I use for the unexpected. In this case, I should think interesting would suffice.

    SPOCK: That his food has no taste, his wine no flavor? No. It simply means that Trelane knows all of the Earth forms, but none of the substance.

    KIRK: And if he's fallible, he can't be all powerful. Which means he has something helping him.

    TRELANE: Ah, my dear, don't we make a graceful pair? Except for one small detail. That dress hardly matches this charming scene.
    (Suddenly she's wearing an empire line dress with feathers in her hair. Idealised Jane Austen)
    TRELANE: Ah, yes, that's more what we want. The dashing warrior and his elegant lady.

    KIRK: That mirror. It's part of his audience, his ego. He never wanders from it.

    KIRK: No, no, Mister Spock, that's not the reason. What kind of a machine could do these things?

    SPOCK: A machine with the ability to turn energy into matter guided by thought waves. It would have a very complex memory bank, and would be extremely sophisticated.

    KIRK: Like a computer, only much more. Could the machine that maintains the environment in this immediate area be kept in this house?

    SPOCK: I think not. A device capable of keeping out this planet's natural atmosphere would be immense.

    KIRK: If I'm not mistaken, Mister Spock, I think I can turn his lights off at the source. (raises his voice) Don't be too upset by what you see, gentlemen. After all, his actions are those of an immature, unbalanced mind.
