Re: Star Trek 2 The Wrath of Khan - Why did Kirk yell "KHAAAAAN!"?

I think it was written into the script that way to give the audience the feeling that Khan had triumphed. If Shatner had just said "Okey Dokey" then everyone would know some special plan was in the cards. I still remember the feeling of surprise and joy when he popped out his communicator and Spock was online and ready to beam them up.
I know this is out of the movie context, but the entire movie was well crafted to manipulate the viewer on several levels- that is what makes it so much fun to watch...
