Star Trek: The Motion Picture

Chekov: "No casualties reported, Doctor."
Bones: "Wrong Mr. Chekov. There are casualties... my witts as in frightened out of Captain Sir."

Bones: "He's dead Jim."

Kirk: "Evaluation, Mr. Spock."
Spock: "Fascinating."

Spock: "It's life, Captain, but not life as we know it."

[Kirk apologizes for assuming command from Captain Decker.]
Kirk: "I'm sorry, Will."
Decker: "No, Admiral. I don't think you're sorry. Not one damned bit. I remember when you recommended me for this command. You told me how envious you were and how much you hoped you would get a starship command again. Well sir, it looks like you found a way."

[A transporter accident has just occurred.]
Transporter chief: "Enterprise, what we got back didn't live very long... fortunately."

Capt. Kirk: "Well, for a man who swore he'd never return to the Starfleet..."
Dr. McCoy: "Just a moment, Captain sir! Your revered Admiral Nogura invoked a little-known, seldom-used "reserve activation clause." In simpler language, Captain, they DRAFTED me!"
Capt. Kirk in mock horror: "They didn't!"
Dr. McCoy: "This was your idea! This was your idea, wasn't it?!"
Capt. Kirk: "Bones, there's a thing out there."
Dr. McCoy: "Why is any object we don't understand always called "a thing"?"

Dr. McCoy: "Well Jim... I hear Chapel's an M.D. now. Well I'm gonna need a top nurse... not a doctor who'll argue every little diagnosis with me. And they probably redesigned the whole sickbay, too! I know engineers, they LOVE to change things."

Captain Kirk; "Well, Bones. Do the new medical facilities meet with your approval?"
Dr. McCoy: "They do not. It's like working in a damn computer center."

[Comments on the immense size of V'ger.]
Uhura: "It could hold a crew of... tens of thousands."
Dr. McCoy: "Or a crew of a thousand ten miles tall."

[After Spock comments that, mentally, V'ger is a child.]
Dr. McCoy: "Spock, this "child" is about to wipe out every living thing on Earth! Now what do you suggest we do? Spank it?"
Spock: "Each of us, at some time in our lives, turns to someone - a father, a brother, a God - and asks, "Why am I here? What was I meant to be?""

Chief DeFalco: "Heading sir?"
Captain Kirk: "Out there... thataway."
