 Spock: Jim, there is a historic opportunity here.

Kirk: Don't believe them. Don't trust them.

Spock: They're dying.

Kirk: Let them die!

    • Although according to William Shatner's Star Trek Movie Memories, this wasn't how Shatner had intended the line to come off. As it is, the unedited shot includes Kirk physically recoiling, to provide the impression Kirk had regretted saying something so bloodthirsty. Nicholas Meyer, the director, promised Shatner he'd leave the full shot in. Guess who's still waiting.
  • Also, the very end of the film, Captain Sulu bringing in the cavalry. "Fly her apart, then!", not to mention "Target that explosion and fire." when he arrives. It's the closest you ever get to Sulu saying "That guy, ruin his shit." The man has a half-dozen lines and barely a minute of screen-time in the film and he still out-badasses Kirk.
  • Also, steering Excelsior into the Praxis shockwave and allowing the ship to ride it out. Awesome.
  • Scotty kicking a metal door down and phasering the "Klingon" sniper. And the Fandom Rejoiced.
  • The Klingon ambassador applauding Kirk's speech, after having called for his head both earlier in this movie and in Star Trek IV the Voyage Home.
