Uhura Quotes in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock (1984)
[their first look at the USS Excelsior]
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.
Kirk: Come, come, Mr. Scott. Young minds, fresh ideas. Be tolerant.
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: Peace and quiet appeals to me, Lieutenant.
Mr. Adventure: Well, maybe that's okay for someone like you, whose career is winding down. But me, I need some excitement, some adventure... maybe even just a surprise or two.
Uhura: Well, you know what they say, Lieutenant. Be careful what you wish for. You might get it.
[Kirk, McCoy and Sulu enter the transporter room]
Kirk: Uhura, is everything ready?
Uhura: Step into my parlor, gentlemen.
Mr. Adventure: That's Admiral Kirk, my God!
Uhura: Very good for you, Lieutenant.
Mr. Adventure: But it's damned irregular. No destination points, no encoded ID's.
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.
Mr. Adventure: All right...
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!
Kirk: [Pointing to the closet] Are you sure you can handle...?
Uhura: Oh, I'll have "Mr. Adventure" eating out of my hand, sir. And I'll see all of you at the rendezvous.
Uhura: [Chekov and Sulu are lost in the woods of Yellowstone] Is there a problem, gentlemen?
Sulu: Uh, yes. We've been caught in a... we've been caught in a blizzard.
[Chekov blows on the communicator, simulating wind noises]
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.
Uhura: [over communicator] Don't worry, fellas. Your secret's safe with me. I'll sent a shutlecraft to pick you up.
Sulu: Uhura, I owe you one! Sulu out.
[hiking in the woods of Yellowstone]
Chekov: Admit it, we're lost.
Sulu: All right, we're lost. But we're making good time!
Uhura: [over communicator] Commander Sulu, come in please.
Sulu: I don't believe this! Commander Sulu here.
Uhura: Bad news, gentlemen. Shore leave's been canceled.
Chekov: [relieved] Rescued at last!
Uhura: Return to the pre-arranged coordinates for pickup.
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?
Uhura: [walking in] I know you'll whip her into shape, Scotty, you always do.
Scotty: [getting up] Uhura, I thought you were on leave.
Uhura: And I thought we were supposed to be going together.
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...
[whipping up two packages]
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.
Scotty: I just fixed that damn thing! Turn it off, will you?
