"Some day, my people are going to come up with some sort of a doctrine, something that tells us what we can and can't do out here, should and shouldn't do. But until somebody tells me that they have drafted that directive, I'm going to have to remind myself that we didn't come out here to play god." - Archer to Phlox
ENT : Dear Doctor

ENT : Future Tense
"I might have expected something like this from a first year recruit, but not you. You did exactly what I'd do? If that's true then I've done a pretty lousy job setting an example around here. You're a senior officer on this ship, you're privy to the moral challenges I've had to face. You know I've wrestled with the fine line between doing what I think is right and interfering with other species. So don't tell me you know what I would have done when I don't even know what I would have done!" - Archer to Trip

Of all the captains who will sit in this chair, I can't imagine any of them being more proud than I am right now." - Archer to crew

Trip : "You did the right thing."
Archer : "Seems the longer we're out here, the more I have to keep saying that to myself."
  People :  Charles Tucker III, Jonathan Archer

ENT : The Council
"I've been told that people are calling us heroes. When it comes to my crew, you won't get any argument from me." - Archer to well, just about everybody!

  People :  Jonathan Archer, Doctor Noonien Soong
ENT : The Forge
"Maybe you've evolved into beings with abilities I can't comprehend. But you've paid a hell of a price. You've lost compassion and empathy, things that give life meaning. If that's what it takes to be advanced, I don't want any part of it." - Archer to the Organian
ENT : Observer Effect
"If you want to know what it means to be Human, you need to do more than observe." - Archer to Organians
ENT : Observer Effect
Gral : "I'm told this ship is the pride of Starfleet. I find it small and unimpressive."
Archer : "Funny. I was about to say the same thing about you."
  People :  Jonathan Archer, Gral
ENT : Babel One
Navaar : "I can see you're not very experienced at making threats."
Archer : "I'm a lot better at carrying them out."
  People :  Jonathan Archer, Navaar

ENT : In A Mirror, Darkly, Part 2
"Up until about a hundred years ago, there was one question that burned in every human, that made us study the stars and dream of travelling to them, 'Are we alone?' Our generation is privileged to know the answer to that question. We are all explorers, driven to know what's over the horizon, what's beyond our own shores. And yet, the more I've experienced, the more I've learned that no matter how far we travel, or how fast we get there, the most profound discoveries are not necessarily beyond that next star. They're within us, woven into the threads that bind us, all of us, to each other. A final frontier begins in this hall. Let's explore it together." - Archer to the conference
ENT : Terra Prime
Picard : "Space, the final frontier these are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. It's continuing mission..."

Archer : "...to boldly go where no man has gone before."
