Star Trek: Enterprise: Broken Bow (1)

In the nine decades following Zefram Cochrane's visionary warp flight in space and the First Contact that followed, the human race has been slowly guided by the Vulcans toward developing the Warp Five engine. Mankind is at last able to explore the virgin depths of space with a revolutionary new starship, the Enterprise NX-01, under the command of Captain Jonathan Archer. Plans to launch Enterprise are moved up when a Klingon courier is shot down by unknown assailants and crash-lands in Broken Bow, Oklahoma. Feeling that the Vulcans have been condescending toward mankind for years, Archer insists it's the humans' responsibility to return the injured Klingon to his homeworld alive. Archer is fully backed by Starfleet Command, and the Vulcans' objections fall upon deaf ears.

Episode Quotes
T'Pol: My reason for being here is not espionage. My superiors simply asked me to assist you.
Archer: Your superiors don't think we can flush a toilet without one of you to assist us.

Travis: Course laid in, sir. Request permission to get underway.
(T'Pol looks at her console and turns to Captain Archer)
T'Pol: The coordinates are off by point two degrees.
Captain Archer: (slightly annoyed) Thank you.
(Captain Archer turns back to Mayweather)
Captain Archer: Let's go.
(Enterprise jumps into warp)

Archer: God she's beautiful.
Trip: And fast. Warp four point five next Thursday.
Archer: Neptune and back in six minutes.

Trip: If I didn't know better, I'd think you were afraid of flying.
Archer: If I'm afraid of anything, it's the scrambled eggs I had for breakfast.

Trip: Since when do we have Vulcan Science Officers?
Archer: Since we needed starcharts to get to Kronos.
Trip: So we get a few maps...and they get to put a spy on our ship?
Archer: Admiral Forrest says we should think of her more as a "chaperone."

T'Pol: Space is very big, Captain...a shadow on your sensors won't help you find them. This is a foolish mission.

T'Pol: You are going to be contacting Starfleet to advise them of our situation.
Archer: No, I'm not. And neither are you. Now get the hell out there and make yourself useful.

Archer: We've been deferring to their judgement for a hundred years.
Admiral Forrest: John...
Archer: How much longer?
T'Pol: Until you've proven you're ready.
Archer: Ready to what?!
T'Pol: To look beyond your provincial attitudes and volatile nature.
Archer: Volatile? You have no idea how much I'm restraining myself from knocking you on your ass!
