Re: Humor in STID (spoilers if you haven't seen it, yet)

Snarky Spock rules.
That whole exchange is gold.

The humor in STID is a lot better all around than ST'09 – almost all of it comes from character, without the dumb "fat hands"-style slapstick.

The conversation between Kirk and Spock just before the ill-fated briefing is another great moment. It's really funny, but it also sets up the gulf between their mindsets about family and duty, material that pays off in Kirk's death scene.
