Discussion in 'Star Trek - The Original & Animated Series' started by The Illusive Man, Sep 2, 2010.
SPOCK: Is the random element.
KIRK: In his condition, what does he do? Does he kill her?
SPOCK: Or perhaps he prevents her from being killed. We don't know which.
KIRK: Get this thing fixed. We must find out before McCoy arrives.
SPOCK: Captain, suppose we discover that in order to set things straight again, Edith Keeler must die?
(Bones arrives in the street.)
MCCOY: Assassins! Murderers! Murderers! Assassins! You! What planet is this? No! Don't run! I won't kill you! It's they who do the killing! Don't run! I won't kill you!
(Jim and Edith are climbing the stairs together.)
EDITH: Why? What is so funny about man reaching for the moon?
KIRK: How do you know?
EDITH: I just know, that's all. I feel it. And more, I think that one day they'll take all the money they spend now on war and death ...
KIRK: And make them spend it on life?
EDITH: Yes. You see the same things that I do. We speak the same language.
KIRK: The very same.
(They are outside room 33 when he leans in for the kiss.)
(McCoy catches the down-and-out.)
MCCOY: I'm glad you got away, too. Why do you think they want to kill us?
Vagrant: Look, fella, you take a sip too much of that old wood alky, and, and almost anything seems like it...
MCCOY: Where? Where are we? Earth? The constellations seem right, but. Explain! Explain this trick.
Vagrant: I... I...
MCCOY: Biped. Small. Good cranial development. No doubt considerable human ancestry. Is that how you're able to fake all of this? Very good. Modern museum perfection. Right down to the cement beams. Very, very good. Oh, I'd give a lot to see the hospital. Probably needles and sutures. All the pain. They used to hand-cut and sew people like garments. Needles and sutures. Oh, the terrible pain!
(He passes out on the ground and his colour starts to improve. The man frisks him, finds his phaser and runs off a little way. Then he fiddles with the phaser, and disintegrates himself.)
Kirk and Spocks Flop
Kirk: How long before we get an answer?
Spock: I'll need at least two more days before I dare make another attempt.
