And the closing line is a stinker.
The line "What of Lazarus?" has always struck me as a literary allusion, given the way it was delivered. It doesn't seem to be an actual Bible quote, but in Googling it, I've found it used in a number of posts, articles, sermons, etc. about the Biblical Lazarus, though I don't know what the original source is. It just seems to be a commonly used phrase.
That pretentiousness inherent in the line is part of why I hate it. Shatner delivers the line perfectly, for what it is, so it's not his fault.
