I love how Kirk (in my view) knows that McCoy is in one of his moods, and doesn't even acknowledge the question.

Re: "Why is any object we don't understand always called a thing?"

Reading the script, I see the conversation as the banter between two friends. I see McCoy venting his frustration at someone he trusts and respects. I see Kirk knowing when to respond and when to let his friend vent. I wish that there been more revealed on what McCoy was doing before he was reactivated to explain his frustration.

In an earlier draft of the script, it's revealed that McCoy went into veterinary medicine. He said his patients didn't complain so much. I don't know how long that lasted in subsequent drafts.

Also, in Roddenberry's novelization of the TMP, I think he mentions that Bones has been studying Fabrini medicine.
