    Uhura: Would you look at that.

    Kirk: My friends, the great experiment: The Excelsior. Ready for trial runs.

    Sulu: She's supposed to have transwarp drive.

    Scotty: Aye. And if my grandmother had wheels, she'd be a wagon.

  • Mr. Adventure: Look at you. You're a twenty-year space veteran, yet you pick the worst duty station in town. I mean, look at this place. This is the hind end of space.

    Uhura: All true.

    Mr. Adventure: So what are we gonna do about it?

    Uhura: I'm not gonna do anything about it. You're gonna sit in the closet.

    Mr. Adventure: The *closet*? Have you lost your sense of reality?

    Uhura: This isn't reality.

    [Turns a phaser on him]

    Uhura: This is fantasy. You wanted adventure, how's this? The old adrenaline going, huh? Good boy. Now get in the closet.

    Uhura: Go on.

    Mr. Adventure: I'll just get in the closet. All right! Damn!

    [Falls into the closet and shuts the door]

    McCoy: I'm glad you're on *our* side!

    Chekov: And we can't see a thing. Request you direct us to the coordinates.

    Uhura: My visual says sunny skies and seventy degrees.

    Chekov: [stops blowing] Sulu, look. The sun's come out. It's a miracle.

    Chekov: Don't tell them we're lost. We'll never live it down here.

  • Uhura: [arriving to pick up Kirk from shore leave] Captain, we've received important orders from Starfleet Command.

    Kirk: Why didn't you just beep my communicator?

    Uhura: You 'forgot' to take it with you.

    Kirk: Oh... I wonder 'why' I did that?

  • Scotty: [cursing, on his back trying to fix a computer console] "Let's see what she's got," said the captain. And then we found out, didn't we?

    Scotty: [getting up] Uhura, I thought you were on leave.

    Scotty: Oh, I can't leave her now when she needs me the most.

    Uhura: [stroking Scotty's cheek] I had a feeling you would say something like that, so I brought us...

    Uhura: dinner.

    Scotty: [grabbing a package] Oh, lassie. You're the most understanding woman I know.

    Starfleet Officer: [transmission on a malfunctioning computer] Red-Red-Red Alert. Red Alert. Red-Red-Red Alert.
