"Ah Kirk, my old friend. Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold? It is very cold in space." - Khan
Khan : "I've done far worse than kill you, Admiral. I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you. I shall leave you as you left me, as you left her, marooned for all eternity in the center of a dead planet. Buried alive. Buried alive..."
Kirk : "KHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNN!!!"
McCoy : "Lieutenant, you are looking at the only Starfleet cadet who ever beat the no-win scenario."
Saavik : "How?"
Kirk : "I reprogrammed the simulation so it was possible to rescue the ship."
Saavik : "What?"
David Marcus : "He cheated!"
"We tried it once your way Khan, are you game for a rematch? Khan... I'm laughing at the superior intellect." - Kirk; goading Khan
"From hell's heart I stab at thee... for hates sake I spit my last breath at thee..." - Khan; on Kirk
"I have been... and always shall be... your friend. Live long, and prosper." - Spock; His last words
"We are assembled here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. And yet, it should be noted that in the midst of our sorrow, this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world. A world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish. He did not feel this sacrifice a vain or empty one, and we will not debate his profound wisdom at these proceedings. Of my friend, I can only say this, of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... Human." - Kirk; on Spock
David : "You knew enough to tell Saavik that how we face death is at least as important as how we face life."
Kirk : "Just words."
David : "But good words. That's where ideas begin. Maybe you should listen to them. I was wrong about you. And I'm sorry."
Kirk : "Is that what you came here to say?"
David : "Mainly. And also that I'm proud... very proud... to be your son."
"There are always possibilities Spock said... and if Genesis is indeed life from death, I must return to this place again." - Kirk; His log entry
McCoy : "He's really not dead, as long as we remember him."
Kirk : "It's a far, far better thing I do than I have done before. A far better resting place I go to than I have ever known."
Carol : "Is that a poem?"
Kirk : "No, something Spock was trying to tell me, on my birthday."
McCoy : "Are you okay Jim? How do you feel?"
Kirk : "Young. I feel young."
