Mudd: The patrol reacted in a hostile manner.
^^^ beat me to it! EDIT!
Kirk; "They fired on him."
Kirk: They fired at him!
MUDD: They've no respect for private property. They damaged the bloody spaceship. Well, I got away, but I couldn't navigate, so I wandered out through unmapped space, and here I found Mudd.
Spock: You went to substantial risk and effort to lure a starship here, logically you must have a compelling motive.
MUDD: Spock, you're going to love it here. They all talk just the way you do.
Kirk: Come on, get on with it, Harry.
Mudd: Yes, well, right, laddybuck. So here I am in a planet with over two hundred thousand hard-working, happy androids, all of whom exist merely to serve my every whim. It's absolute paradise
SPOCK: Then I'm unable to discern your problem.
Mudd: They won't let me go! They want to study me! They want to learn more about human beings.
Kirk: They picked a fine representative.
Mudd: Watch your tongue, lad. You're talking about Mudd the First. Well, anyway, I ran out of ideas. I simply ran out of things for them to do, and they insisted that I bring them more human beings. They need human beings to serve, to study. So I had to promise them a prime sample. A starship captain. Bright, loyal, fearless and imaginative. Any captain would have done. I was lucky to get you. So you are going to take over for me here, and I can get off this rock and back to civilisation.
Kirk: I think not Harry.
Mudd: You misunderstand me, lad. I'm not asking you. I'm telling you. You've no choice. Show them to their quarters.
Norman/Alice's: Yes, my Lord Mudd
Alice: This way, please.
McCoy: (pointing to curtain) Harry, whats This?
Mudd: Ah. That, gentlemen, is a shrine to the memory of my beloved Stella.
Mudd: Stella, my wife.
(Reveals a woman with a sour face.)
