--> '''Evil Spock''': You must return to your universe. I must have my captain back. I shall operate the transporter. [[RaceAgainstTheClock You have two minutes and ten seconds.]]
--> '''Kirk''': In that time [[AnAesop I have something to say]]. How long before the Halkan prediction of galactic revolt is realised?
--> '''Evil Spock''': Approximately two hundred and forty years.
--> '''Kirk''': The inevitable outcome?

--> '''Evil Spock''': You have one minute and twenty three seconds.
--> '''Kirk''': If [[GrowingTheBeard change is inevitable, predictable, beneficial]], doesn't logic demand that you be a part of it?
--> '''Evil Spock''': One man cannot summon the future.
--> '''Kirk''': But one man can change the present. Be TheCaptain of this Enterprise, Mister Spock. Find a logical reason for [[AdoptTheDog sparing the Halkans]] and make it stick. Push till it gives. You can defend yourself better than any man in the fleet.
--> '''Scotty''': Captain, get in the transporter!
--> '''Kirk''': What will it be? Past or future? [[GiveMeLibertyOrGiveMeDeath Tyranny or freedom]]? [[TheOnlyOne It's up to you]].

--> '''Kirk''': In every revolution, there's [[MessianicArchetype one man with a vision]].

** UnbuiltTrope: This story helped to popularize the MirrorUniverse trope, but showed that the universes weren't really that different as the later Mirror Universe episodes on ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' would show them to be. Even though his mirror counterpart had a BeardOfEvil, Spock was, as the show put it, "A man of honor in both universes", [[AntiVillain and not strictly evil in the mirror universe]] despite clearly being on the side of the angels in the primary reality. Also, the Aliens of the Week, the Halkans, were {{Actual Pacifist}}s in both the 'real' universe and in the Mirror Universe.

* FanService: Of both [[MrFanservice male]] and [[MsFanservice female]] varieties. Most notable are Uhura and Marlena in their [[TheissTitillationTheory barely there]] uniforms, but '60s Shatner had some nice arms.

to:

* ExactWords: Captain Kirk tricks Marlena by saying things that are perfectly accurate descriptions of his plans, but are vague enough that Marlena interprets them to mean that he's got an EvilPlan going on.

Added DiffLines:

* SureLetsGoWithThat: Marlena suspects that Kirk's unusual behavior is part of a scheme to gain rank and power. Kirk plays along with a [[ExactWords technically true]] [[SarcasticConfession statement of his intentions]] that Marlena [[DoubleMeaning interprets to mean]] that he's planning to take over the Empire.

* GilliganCut: Bones and Kirk worry about what havoc their evil counterparts are wreaking in their universe. Turns out Spock had them figured out right away and tossed them in the brig.
