[in the Genesis Cave]
Saavik: [to Kirk] Sir, may I ask you a question?
James T. Kirk: What's on your mind, Lieutenant?
Saavik: The Kobyashi Maru.
James T. Kirk: Are you asking me if we're playing out that scenario now?
Saavik: On the test, sir, would you tell me what you did? I would really like to know.
Leonard McCoy: Lieutenant, you are looking at the only Starfleet cadet to ever beat the no-win senario. [points to Kirk]
Saavik: How?
James T. Kirk: I reprogrammed the simulator so that it was possible to rescue the ship.
Saavik: What?
David Marcus: He cheated.
James T. Kirk: I changed the conditions of the test; got a commendation for original thinking. I don't like to lose.
Saavik: Then you've never faced that situation... faced death.
James T. Kirk: I don't believe in the no-win senario. [pulls out communicator] Kirk to Spock, it's two hours, are you ready?
Spock: [over communicator] Right on schedule, Admiral. Just give us your co-ordinates and we'll beam you aboard.
James T. Kirk: All right. [to Saavik] I don't like to lose.
