Quotes[edit]

Oh, I'd give a lot to see the hospital. Probably needles and sutures. All the pain. They used to hand-cut and sew people like garments. Needles and sutures. Oh, the terrible pain! ~ Harlan Ellison
Watching you, I assumed it was trial and error. ~ Gene Roddenberry and Gene L. Coon
Capt. Kirk: He is a healer, let him heal.
  • Dr. McCoy: Biped. Small. Good cranial development. No doubt considerable human ancestry. Is that how you're able to fake all of this? Very good. Modern museum perfection. Right down to the cement beams. Very, very good. Oh, I'd give a lot to see the hospital. Probably needles and sutures. All the pain. They used to hand-cut and sew people like garments. Needles and sutures. Oh, the terrible pain!
  • Patient: Doctor.
Dr. McCoy: What's the matter with you?
Woman Patient: Kidney ...dialysis.
Dr. McCoy: Dialysis? My god, what is this, the Dark Ages? Here, you swallow that. If you have a problem, just call me.
  • Intern #1: Did you hear anything?
Intern #2: I was there. I heard the whole thing.
Intern #1: Weintrub said radical chemotherapy or she's gonna croak. Just like that.
Intern #2: Well, what about Gottlieb?
Intern #1: All he talked about was image therapy, or otherwise he'd cut it out.
Dr. McCoy: Unbelievable.
Intern #1: You have a different view, Doctor?
McCoy: It sounds like the goddam Spanish Inquisition!
  • Doctor #1: A simple evacuation of the expanding epidural hematoma will relieve the pressure.
McCoy: My God, man, drilling holes in his head's not the answer. The artery must be repaired. Now put away your butcher knives and let me save this patient before it's too late!
Doctor #1: I'm going to have you removed.
Kirk: Doctors! Such unprofessional behaviour. ...Into that little room please.
Doctor #1: What is that? A gun?
Medical Staff: What is this? ...I have no idea! (Kirk fuses the lock of the little room with his phaser)
Doctor #1: He melted the lock!
McCoy: We're dealing with medievalism here! ...Chemotherapy! ...Fundoscopic examinations!
  • Vina: They found me in the wreckage, dying. A lump of flesh. They rebuilt me. Everything works. But they had never seen a human. They had no guide for putting me back together.
  • Mr. Spock: Doctor, if I were able to show emotion, your new infatuation with that term would begin to annoy me.
Dr. McCoy: What term? 'Logic'? Medical men are trained in logic, Mr. Spock.
Mr. Spock: Really, Doctor? I had no idea they were trained. Watching you, I assumed it was trial and error.
