Spock: Question; why are we unable to communicate with crew members McCoy, Sulu and Uhura?
Computer Voice: Answer; that is for me to know and for you to find out.
Kirk: Did I hear that right?
Spock: Affirmative. The dysfunction is more severe than I thought. Question; are you deliberately holding our missing crew members prisoner?
Computer Voice: I'll never tell.
Kirk: Let me try. This is Captain James T. Kirk speaking. You are programmed to obey any direct order I may give, correct?
Computer Voice: Correct.
Kirk: Very well, I order you to release McCoy, Sulu and Uhura immediately.
Computer Voice: Say "please."
Kirk: Well, I'll be...
Spock: I suggest compliance, Captain.
Kirk: (through clenched teeth) Please.
Computer Voice: Say "pretty please... with sugar on top."
