friday movie quote

Zefram Cochrane

“You wanna know what my vision is? Dollar signs. Money! I didn’t build this ship to usher in a new era for humanity. You think I wanna see the stars? I don’t even like to fly. I take trains! I built this ship so I could retire to some tropical island filled with naked women. That’s Zefram Cochrane. That’s his vision. This other guy you keep talking about, this historical figure? I never met him. I can’t imagine I ever will.”

-Zefram Cochrane (James Cromwell), Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
