In addition to the Church and my family, I love Star Trek (Original Series, thank you very much). While some of the episodes were, frankly, stupid ("All Our Yesterdays", anyone), the series did provide some great insights into life, love, and the mysteries of the universe. Here, in no particular order, are some of my favorites.
Spock: I've noticed that about your people, Doctor. You find it easier to understand the death of one than the death of a million. You speak about the objective hardness of the Vulcan heart, yet how little room there seems to be in yours.
McCoy: Suffer the death of thy neighbor, eh, Spock? You wouldn't wish that on us, would you?
Spock: It might have rendered your history a bit less bloody.--"The Immunity Syndrome".
Ambassador Sarek: Kirk, I thank you. What you have done is...
Kirk: What I have done, I had to do.
Ambassador Sarek: But at what cost ? Your ship. Your son.
Kirk: If I hadn't tried, the cost would have been my soul. .--Star Trek III: The Search for Spock

And finally, a last word from the Captain...
Second star to the right, and straight on till morning.--last on-screen line, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
