James T. Kirk: [to Bones] Physician, heal thyself.
Leonard McCoy: Is that all you've got to say? What about my performance?

James T. Kirk: We are gathered here today to pay final respects to our honored dead. But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life, the sunrise of a new world; a world that our beloved comrade gave his life to protect and nourish.

Leonard McCoy: Go? Where are we going?
James T. Kirk: Where they went.
Leonard McCoy: Suppose they went nowhere?
James T. Kirk: Then this will be your big chance to get away from it all.

Leonard McCoy: No! You'll flood the whole compartment!
James T. Kirk: He'll die!
Montgomery Scott: Sir! He's dead already.
Leonard McCoy: It's too late.

[Spock is about to sacrifice himself to save the ship]

Spock: As you are so fond of observing, Doctor, I am not human.
Leonard McCoy: [grabs Spock] You're not going in there.
Spock: Perhaps you're right. What is Mr. Scott's condition?
Leonard McCoy: Well, I don't think that he— [Spock nerve-pinches McCoy]
