KIRK: Grab your medical kit and come down here on the double. I've got a patient for you.
MCCOY [OC]: Is somebody injured? What happened?
KIRK: Never mind. Just come down to the twenty third level. You'll be led to us by tricorder readings. Kirk out.
Spock: Jim, I remind you that this is a silicon based form of life. Dr. McCoy's medical knowledge will be totally useless.
KIRK: He's a healer, let him heal. Mister Spock, you must re-establish communications. I want to know why it suddenly took to murder.
Spock: To obtain that kind of communication Captain, it will be necessary to touch it.
KIRK: We've seen how the creature destroys.
(While Kirk watches, Spock approaches the Horta and establishes a full meld. Kirk takes out communicator.)
KIRK: Lieutenant Commander Giotto.
Giotto here, Captain.Are you all right?
Kirk: Perfectly all right. Where are you?
GIOTTO: We're at the end of the tunnel. Mr. Vanderberg and his men are here, and they're pretty ugly. Shall I let them through?
Kirk: Under no circumstances allow them in here yet, The minute Dr. McCoy gets there send him through.
[Level twenty three]
GIOTTO: Aye, aye, sir.
SPOCK: (in meld) Murder. The thousands. Devils! Eternity ends. The chamber of the ages. The altar of tomorrow! Murderers! Stop them! Kill! Strike back! Monsters!
(McCoy runs in)
McCoy: What in the name of........
(McCoy walks over to Kirk)
What is Spock doing?
KIRK: It's wounded. Badly. You've got to help it.
McCoy: Help that!?
KIRK: Go take a look.
McCoy kneels by the wound and gets out his tricorder.
SPOCK: The end of life. Murderers.
MCCOY: You can't be serious. That thing is virtually made out of stone!
KIRK: Help it. Treat it.
(hence, relinquishing the episode's classic line)
MCCOY: I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer.
