It's Naked Time all right, when he has that long complicated camera move scene wrapping around him, alone in the briefing room. It was the last shot of the day and everyone was wanting to leave before overtime kicked in, and Nimoy knew he had to get it right the first time.

"Two... four... six... eight... (cries)"

Being picky, but TATV points out they were already into Golden Time, but it is still an amazing scene/shot, a nice collaboration between Nimoy and Marc Daniels on the fly

Re: LOL Sobbing what? DVD/BR subtitles question

Yeah, I was recalling it from memory. I've not read the source nor seen the episode in over 20 years.

"Picky, picky, picky." --Pat Paulsen

More from Paulsen:

"All the problems we face in the United States today can be traced to an unenlightened immigration policy on the part of the American Indian."

"I don’t want to say too much about illegal immigration. I’m afraid my views will be reported on the Cinco O’Clock News."

"Why should we tell kidnappers, murderers, and embezzlers their rights? If they don't know their rights, they shouldn't be in the business."

But can anyone confirm "sobbing mathematically" are really in the disc subtitles?
No. (I just watched this episode on Blu-ray; the subtitles only say "CRYING".)

There was always a little something "off" and unsettling when Nimoy's Spock went emotional. It reinforced that he was still an alien, and that there was a reason that Vulcan's kept their feelings bottled up. Mark Lenard (and Patrick Stewart channeling his character) also pulled this off.

This is what disappoints me with Laurence Luckinbill's performance as an "emotional Vulcan" in STV...he didn't capture any of that. Take off the ears, you're just playing a human.
Wait, you're comparing the performance of characters who were stoic 99.99 percent of the time and then had some kind of traumatic break---

to a character who long ago decided it was okay to be as emotional as the everyday human?

You totally missed the point.

Funny, I always thought that the people behind STV were the ones missing the point....
