James T. Kirk: I should be on the bridge.
David Marcus: Can I talk to you for a minute?
James T. Kirk: I poured myself a drink. Would you like it?
David Marcus: Lieutenant Saavik was right. You never have faced death.
James T. Kirk: No, not like this. I haven't faced death. I've cheated death. I've tricked my way out of death... and patted myself on the back for my ingenuity. I know nothing.
David Marcus: You knew enough to tell Saavik that how we face death is at least as important as how we face life.
James T. Kirk: Just words.
David Marcus: But good words. That's where ideas begin. Maybe you should listen to them. I was wrong about you... and I'm sorry.
James T. Kirk: Is that what you came here to say?
David Marcus: Mainly. And also that I'm... proud. Very proud to be your son.
