The overuse of the word "happen" in this sequence of dialogue makes me laugh like nothing else.
A friend of mine suggested that this was a pattern in the film, things being repeated in different ways for emphasis for the slow and stupid among the viewers...(cf. the sequence about the "alternate universe" between nuSpock etc. later).

Also, Nero's accent sounded to me closer to a Southerner than a Romulan.
