Saavik: "Sir, may I ask you a question?"
Kirk: "What's on your mind, Lieutenant?"
Saavik: "The Kobayashi Maru, sir."
Kirk: "Are you asking me if we're playing out that scenario now?"
Saavik: "On the test, sir. Will you tell me what you did? I would really like
to know."
McCoy: "Lieutenant, you are looking at the only Starfleet cadet who ever beat
the no-win scenario."
Saavik: "How?"
Kirk: "I reprogrammed the simulation so it was possible to rescue the ship."
Saavik: "What?"
David: "He cheated."
Kirk: "I changed the conditions of the test. Got a commendation for original
thinking. I don't like to lose."
Saavik: "Then you never faced that situation. Faced death."
Kirk: "I don't believe in the no-win scenario."
