“There was an episode, one of my favorite moments in Star Trek, when Captain Kirk looks over the cosmos and says, ‘Somewhere out there someone is saying the three most beautiful words in any language.’ Of course your heart sinks and you think it’s going to be, ‘I love you’ or whatever. He says, ‘Please help me.’ What a philosophically fantastic idea, that vulnerability and need is a beautiful thing.”


Hugh Laurie (via vayaconqueso)

It may be, but I think Hugh got the quote backwards. In City on the Edge of Forever, written by Harlan Ellison, Kirk told Edith Keeler,

Let me help. A hundred years or so from now, I believe, a famous novelist will write a classic using that theme. He’ll recommend those three words even over I love you.”

As someone else here says, reaching out and easing someone’s burden.

Unless Kirk reverses it somewhere else. I wouldn’t put it past him.
