Can you not just pause where you want to take the picture then right click then copy the image and paste on textedit?

Take a screenshot of the quicktime movie as it is playing at the place you want the image. I recommend snapNdrag as a replacement for the default screenshot abilities of Mac OS X, as it will capture pretty much anything.

Move the playhead to the frame you want to export.
Choose File > Export.
Choose "Movie to Picture" from the Export pop-up menu.
Click Options and choose a format from the "Compression type" pop-up menu.
