SPOCK: Mother, how can you have lived on Vulcan so long, married a Vulcan, raised a son on Vulcan, without understanding what it means to be a Vulcan? AMANDA: Well, if this is what it means, I don’t want to know. SPOCK: It means to adopt a philosophy, a way of life, which is logical and beneficial. We cannot disregard that philosophy merely for personal gain, no matter how important that gain might be. AMANDA: Nothing is as important as your father’s life. SPOCK: Can you imagine what my father would say if I were to agree? If I were to give up command of this vessel, jeopardize hundreds of lives, risk interplanetary war, all for the life of one person?
