Which episode or movie (or book) establishes this? I can't find the on-screen source.

Although I have used the script search, it is also stated in San Francisco Memory Alpha article as the leading quote.
While stranded in a damaged shuttlecraft, Kirk, Sulu, Chekov, and Scotty recall their Starfleet Academy Command School experiences with the simulation scenario The Kobayashi Maru. Within the narrative of his story, Sulu describes his grandfather making a thousand paper cranes which are released on to the water near their family home in San Francisco Bay.
