Spock: "Thrusters on full..."?
 
I sort of get the emotional idea behind it, but why, really, in the last scene at the academy, where Spock's watching Kirk's accolades, does he say "Thrusters on full..." before the final sequence of the Enterprise? Is he remembering his days on the ship, or something? It captures a good emotion of the moment but still doesn't really seem to actually make sense for him to say that there.

This has already been discussed in a couple threads. Maybe M'Sharak can find them...

I thought it had to do with his Viagra kicking in.

He knows their adventure is about to begin.

Hence the line

He's thinking about it all starting over again, remembering his younger self and his friend on the bridge about to go blasting across the unknown. Good line.

this was mentioned in another thread, but to clarify:

It was actually Leonard Nimoy's line (he came up with it, and asked Abrams if he could say a line there when he was initially meant to be silent). Abrams mentions this on the DVD commentary, during the cave scene when Spock Prime meets Kirk. In the commentary it's revealed that he came up with the line while on set, and that it's "his blessing to the future of Star Trek."

I think "Warp speed ahead" or "Second star to the right" would have been better. Who goes on an adventure using thrusters? :p
