      • Leonard Nimoy: The analogy is weak. Klingons, while warlike, are bound by a strong code of honor, while Vulcans, though logical, can also be quite emotional. For example during the mating ritual known as Pon Farr, you remember it from the episode Amok Time. As you recall McCoy had noticed that I was....
        Jon Stewart: I'm sorry Lenny, to interrupt, I've got call waiting coming in.

      • Tony Snow (White House Press Secretary): Ask a simple question, if the U.S. withdraws, does it make Osama bin Laden happy or sad?

      • Bush: I've committed more than 20,000 additional American troops to Iraq....Thank you, and goodnight.
        (crickets begin to chirp in the background)
        Jon Stewart: You'd think planning a major speech like that someone would have checked the White House for crickets.

      • Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.):This president has listened to some people, the so-called Vulcans in the White House, the ideologues. But you know, unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek who made the decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on ideology. These aren't Vulcans. There are Klingons in the White House. But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek, these Klingons have never fought a battle of their own.
