Episode Quotes
McCoy: I must have taken a little nap.
Spock: Doctor, you are a man of curious habits, but I have never known you to nap on the laboratory floor.

Romulan Commander: You appear to have a propensity for trespassing in Neutral Zone, Captain Kirk.
Kirk: It was not deliberate, I assure you.
Romulan Commander: It never is.

McCoy: You caught him.
Spock: Acute observation, Doctor.
McCoy: I'm glad to see him under guard, Jim. If he'd turned into a second Spock, it would've been too much to take.
Spock: Perhaps. But then two Dr. McCoys just might bring the level of medical efficiency on this ship up to acceptable levels.
