The Devil in the Dark Quotes

  • (Unnamed) "Jim, I remind you that this is a silicon-based form of life. Dr. McCoy's medical knowledge will be totally useless."
  • (Unnamed) "He is a healer, let him heal."
  • (Unnamed) "Well, what do we do, just -- talk it over?"
  • (Unnamed) "Well, you can be hurt, can't you?"
  • (Unnamed) "We just sit here? It's your move."
  • (Unnamed) "You can't be serious. That thing is virtually made out of stone."
  • (Unnamed) "Help it. Treat it."
  • (Unnamed) "I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer."
  • (Unnamed) "You're a healer. There's a patient. That's an order."
  • (Unnamed) "The Horta is badly wounded. It may die."
  • (Unnamed) "It won't die. By golly, Jim, I'm beginning to think I can cure a rainy day."
  • (Unnamed) "Can you help it?"
  • (Unnamed) "Helped it? I cured it."
  • (Unnamed) "How?"
  • (Unnamed) "Well, I had the ship beam down 100 pounds of that thermal concrete. You know, the kind we use to build emergency shelters out of 'em. It's mostly silicone. So I just troweled it into the wound, and it'll act like a bandage until it heals. Take a look. It's as good as new."
  • (Unnamed) "Well, Mr. Spock, I'm gonna have to ask you to get in touch with the Horta again. Tell her our proposition: She and her children can do all the tunneling they want, our people will remove the minerals, and each side will leave the other alone. You think she'll go for it?"
  • (Unnamed) "It seems logical, Captain. The Horta has a very logical mind; and after close association with humans, I find that curiously refreshing."
  • (Unnamed) "Curious. What Chief Vanderberg said about the horta is exactly what the mother horta said to me. She found humanoid appearance revolting -- but she thought she could get used to it."
  • (Unnamed) "Oh, she did, did she? Now, tell me, did she happen to make any comment about those ears?"
  • (Unnamed) "Not specifically, but I did get the distinct impression she found them the most attractive human characteristic of all. I didn't have the heart to tell her that only I have --"
  • (Unnamed) "She really liked those ears?"
  • (Unnamed) "Captain, the horta is a remarkably intelligent and sensitive creature -- with impeccable taste."
  • (Unnamed) "Because she approved of you?"
  • (Unnamed) "Really, Captain, my modesty --"
  • (Unnamed) "-- does not bear close examination, Mr. Spock. I suspect you're becoming more and more human all the time."
  • (Unnamed) "You -- Captain, I see no reason to stand here and be insulted."
  • (Unnamed) "Ahead Warp Factor Two."
  • (Unnamed) "Mr. Vanderberg, what is this?"
  • (Unnamed) "It's a silicon nodule. There're a million of 'em down there. No commercial value."
  • (Unnamed) "But a geological oddity, to say the least. Pure silicon?"
  • (Unnamed) "A few trace elements. Look, we didn't call you here so you could collect rocks."
  • (Unnamed) "Captain, there are literally thousands of these tunnels in this general area alone. Far too many to be cut by the one creature in an ordinary lifetime."
  • (Unnamed) "Then we're dealing with more than one creature, despite your tricorder readings, or; we have a creature with an extremely long lifespan."
  • (Unnamed) "Or, it is the last of a race of creatures which made these tunnels. If so, if it is the only survivor of a dead race, to kill it would be a crime against science."
  • (Unnamed) "Captain, we are being watched."
  • (Unnamed) "Are you sure? Intuition?"
  • (Unnamed) "No, sir. We're being watched."
  • (Unnamed) "When that creature appears, men die."
  • (Unnamed) "Schmitter didn't burn to death, Jim, not in the usual sense anyway."
  • (Unnamed) "Explain that."
  • (Unnamed) "Well, there are only fragments of bone and teeth left, but the plant's physician agrees with me; a chemical corrosion, almost as if he'd been thrown into a vat of extremely corrosive acid."
  • (Unnamed) "Strong enough to eat machinery?"
  • (Unnamed) "Strong enough to eat anything else the way we can think of."
  • (Unnamed) "Mr. Spock, we seem to have been given a choice: death by asphyxiation or death by radiation poisoning."
  • (Unnamed) "Mr. Spock, give us a report on life beneath the surface."
  • (Unnamed) "Within range of our sensors, there is no life other than the accountable human residents of this colony beneath the surface. Eh, at least, no life as we know it."
