Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (1989) Poster

Leonard Nimoy: Spock



  • Kirk : What does God need with a starship?

    McCoy : Jim, what are you doing?

    Kirk : I'm asking a question.

    "God" : Who is this creature?

    Kirk : Who am I? Don't you know? Aren't you God?

    Sybok : He has his doubts.

    "God" : You doubt me?

    Kirk : I seek proof.

    McCoy : Jim! You don't ask the Almighty for his ID!

    "God" : Then here is the proof you seek.

    [Shoots Kirk with lightning] 

    Kirk : Why is God angry?

    Sybok : Why? Why have you done this to my friend?

    "God" : He doubts me.

    Spock : You have not answered his question. What does God need with a starship?

    "God" : [shoots Spock with lightning; then addresses McCoy]  Do you doubt me?

    McCoy : I doubt any God who inflicts pain for his own pleasure.

  • Kirk : I thought I was going to die.

    Spock : Not possible. You were never alone.

    [Kirk moves to hug Spock, and Spock stops him] 

    Spock : Please, Captain, not in front of the Klingons.

  • Kirk : Damn it Spock! God damn it!

    Spock : Captain, what have I done?

    Kirk : What you've done is betray every man on this ship!

    Spock : Worse I've betrayed you. I do not expect you to forgive me.

    Kirk : Forgive you? I oughta knock you on your goddamned ass!

    Spock : If you think it would help.

    McCoy : Do you want me to hold him, Jim?

    Kirk : You stay out of this! Why, Spock, why? All you had to do is pull the trigger!

    Spock : If I had done that Sybok would be dead.

    Kirk : I ordered you to defend your ship!

    Spock : You ordered me to kill my brother.

    Kirk : But the man may be a fellow Vulcan but he...

    Spock : No, no you do not understand. Sybok also is a son of Sarek.

    Kirk : You mean he's your "brother" brother?

    [Spock nods] 

    Kirk : You made that up.

    Spock : I did not.

    Kirk : You did too! Sybok couldn't possibly be your brother because I happen to know for a fact that you don't have a brother.

    Spock : Technically you are right I do not have a brother.

    Kirk : There! You see?

    Spock : I have a half-brother.

    Kirk : I gotta sit down.

  • Kirk : Go to bed, Spock. Good night, Bones.

    McCoy : Good night, Jim.

    Spock : Good night, doctor.

    McCoy : Good night, Spock.

    Spock : Good night, captain.

    Kirk : [to himself]  ... I don't know... I just don't know...

  • McCoy : I'll tell you one thing, Spock: You never cease to amaze me.

    Spock : Nor I, myself.

  • J'Onn : Where did you get this power?

    Sybok : The power was within you.

    J'Onn : I feel... as if a weight has been lifted from my heart. How can I repay you for this miracle?

    Spock : Join my quest.

    J'Onn : What is it you seek?

    Sybok : What you seek. What all men have sought since time began. The ultimate knowledge.

  • Sybok : Spock. It's me. It's Sybok. After all these years you've finally caught up with me. Don't you have anything to say to me?

    Spock : You are... under arrest. For seventeen violations of the Neutral Zone Treaty.

  • Kirk : [responds to a tapping within the wall]  What's that noise?

    Spock : [tapping continues]  I believe it is a primitive form of communication known as morse Code.

    Kirk : You're right. I'm out of practice.


    Kirk : That's an "S".

    Spock : "T".

    Kirk : "A"... "N"... "D", end of word.

    McCoy : "Stand".

    Kirk : New word... "B"... "A"...

    Spock : "C"... "K".

    McCoy : "Back". "Stand back".

    Kirk , Spock , McCoy : "Stand back"?

    [the wall explodes] 

    Scotty : [on the other side of the wall]  What are you standing around for? Do you not know a jailbreak when you see one?

  • Kirk : What are you doing?

    Spock : I am preparing to toast a marsh melon.

    McCoy : Well, I'll be damned. A marsh melon. Where'd you learn to do that?

    Spock : Before leaving the ship, I consulted the computer library to familiarize myself with the customs associated with "camping out".

    McCoy : Well, tell me, Spock. What do you do after we toast the marsh - er, marsh melons?

    Spock : We consume them.

    McCoy : I know we consume them. I mean after that.

    Spock : Oh. I believe we are required to engage in a ritual known as the sing-a-long.

  • [Around a campfire singing "Row Row Row Your Boat"] 

    Kirk : Come on. Spock... Why didn't you jump in?

    Spock : I was trying to comprehend the meaning of the words.

    McCoy : It's a song, you green-blooded... Vulcan. You sing it. The words aren't important. What's important is that you have a good time singing it.

    Spock : Oh, I am sorry, Doctor. Were we having a good time?

    McCoy : God, I liked him better before he died.

  • Spock : I've lost a brother.

    Kirk : Yes. I lost a brother once. I was lucky I got him back?

    McCoy : I thought you said men like us don't have families.

    Kirk : I was wrong.

  • Scotty : [to Kirk about ship status]  Ah. All I can say is they don't make them like they used to.

    Kirk : You told me you could get this ship operational in two weeks, I gave you three, what happened?

    Scotty : I think you gave me too much time, Captain.

    Kirk : Very well, Mr Scott. Carry on.

    Scotty : Aye, sir.

    [Spots a junior engineer nearby] 

    Scotty : How many times do I have to tell you, the right tool for the right job!

    McCoy : [laughs]  I don't think I've ever seen him happier.

    [They enter the turbolift] 

    Computer : Le-le-level?

    Kirk : Bridge... I hope. I could use a shower.

    Spock : [looks at Kirk]  Yes.

  • Spock : Captain.

    Kirk : Spock, we're on leave you can call me 'Jim'.

    Spock : Jim.

    Kirk : Yes, Spock?

    Spock : Life... is not a dream.

    Kirk : Go to sleep, Spock.

  • Spock : This is a new brig, Captain. It is escape-proof.

    Kirk : How do you know?

    Spock : The designers tested it, using the most intelligent and resourceful person they could find. He failed to escape.

    Kirk : This person... he didn't by any chance have pointed ears, and an unerring capacity for getting his shipmates into trouble, did he?

    Spock : He did have pointed ears.

  • [eating a campfire dinner] 

    Spock : Bipodal seeds, Doctor?

    McCoy : Beans, Spock. But no ordinary beans. These are from a special Southern recipe handed down by my father. And if you stick your Vulcan nose up at these, you're not only insulting me, but generations of McCoys.

    Spock : In that case, I have little choice but to sample your beans.

  • Spock : [Kirk clings precariously to El Capitan]  I do not believe you realize the gravity of your situation.

    Kirk : [Almost slips; a rock drops]  Gravity was foremost on my mind.

  • Spock : [after Kirk has fallen off El Capitan]  Perhaps "because it is there" is not sufficient reason for climbing a mountain.

    Kirk : I am hardly in a position to disagree.

    [see McCoy running toward him] 

    Kirk : Hi, Bones! Mind if we drop in for dinner?

  • Spock : [about Sybok]  He reminds me of someone I knew in my youth.

    McCoy : Why, Spock, I didn't know you had one.

    Spock : I do not often think of the past.

  • Kirk : Spock?

    Spock : Yes, captain?

    Kirk : Be one with the horse.

    Spock : Yes, captain.

  • Spock : [the Enterprise is being attacked by Klaa]  General, I am in need your assistance.

    Korrd : *My* assistance?

    Spock : You are his superior officer.

    Korrd : I am a foolish old man.

    Spock : Damn you, sir. You will try.

  • Kirk : "All I ask is a tall ship, and a star to steer by."

    McCoy : Melville.

    Spock : John Masefield.

    McCoy : Are you sure about that?

    Spock : I am well-versed in the classics, Doctor.

    McCoy : Then how come you don't know "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"?

    [Spock raises his eyebrows] 

  • [Kirk and McCoy agree to let Spock carry them up the shaft using rocket boots, only for the trio to float downwards] 

    Spock : It appears we're too heavy.

    Kirk : Must be all those marsh melons.

  • [last lines] 

    [around a campfire] 

    Kirk : [to Spock]  Are you just gonna sit there and pluck that thing? Or are you gonna play something?

    Spock : [starts playing] 

    Kirk , McCoy , Spock : [singing in canon]  Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream...

  • Spock : [sampling McCoy's baked beans]  Mmm... surprisingly good. It does have a flavoring I'm not familiar with.

    McCoy : Ah-ha, that's the secret ingredient.

    Kirk : Got any more of that secret ingredient, Bones?

    McCoy : [hands Kirk a bottle]  Help yourself.

    Spock : Am I to understand, Doctor, that your secret ingredient is alcohol?

    McCoy : Whiskey, Tennessee whiskey, Spock. Care for a little snort?
