The day before thanksgiving!

Last night was a good one. I had the day off so I got up and I watched Star Trek II: Wrath Of Khan. There were a lot of good quotes in that movie, one of which I used in Secret Sentence. The other ones that I liked were....

Kirk: There's a man out there I haven't seen in 15 years who's trying to kill me. You show me a son that'd be happy to help. My son. My life that could have been... and wasn't. How do I feel? Old. Worn out

These quotes came from and entire scene, but there is one part in blue that I liked the most!

Kirk: Khan, you bloodsucker. You're gonna have to do your own dirty work now, do you hear me? Do you?
Khan: Kirk. You're still alive, old friend.
Kirk: Still, "old friend." You've managed to kill everyone else but like a poor marksman, you keep missing the target.
Khan: Perhaps I no longer need to try, Admiral. [beams the Genesis device away]
Kirk: Khan... Khan, you've got Genesis, but you don't have me. You were going to kill me, Khan. You're gonna have to come down here. You're gonna have to come down here.
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: KHAAANNNN. [echo]

Khan: 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.

I enjoyed this scene too, although it made me sad (when I was a kid and now). It was after Spock sacrificed his life by going into the radiation chamber and reactivated the warp drive to save Enterprise from Genesis Effect.

Kirk: Spock. Spock: Ship... out of danger?
Kirk: Yes.
Spock: Don't grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh...
Kirk: ...the needs of the few.
Spock: ...Or the one. I never took the Kobayashi Maru test until now. What do you think of my solution?
Kirk: Spock...
Spock: I have been and always shall be your friend.
[Holds up his hand in the Vulcan salute]
Spock: Live long and prosper.

I'll miss the Original crew, I even mentioned to my brother that Star Trek will never be the same again, especially now that Deforest Kelly and James Doohan are gone. I mentioned it to him during brother bonding, while playing Madden 2006.
Which reminds me......

My own favorite lines are:

McCoy: But what if this transporter is set to go nowwhere?
Kirk: Well, this will be your big chance to get away from it all.

You've got to lean when commenting somewhere to leave your journal address! sheesh..

I had to comment here.. I was a friend of the Kelley's for about 10 yrs before DeForest passed away (and Carolyn his wife died a year ago)..

If i could say one time that I was "at a loss for words" with De it was when he brought a few of us onto the sets while he was making Star Trek 6..

We arrived and were standing around looking at everyone in their "uniforms" and talking with Jimmy Doohand when DeForest walked in.. mind you.. I KNOW DEFOREST..i do NOT KNOW "McCoy".. lord.. my heart stopped.. something about a uniform i guess.. it wasn't De.. it was McCoy.. and he had in everyway become McCoy! I never saw such a transformation in my life!..

So i am always glad to meet others who enjoyed Trek.. but i also loved the westerns that De was in.. that was MORE acting then playing the doctor as he was the nicest most southern gentleman you could meet and in westerns.. he was on "bad-assed" cowboy! lol

You are right.. the "originals are leaving us"... there are times when "change" really stinks!
