Lip Readers, Need Help With Dr. Korby Line

In What Are Little Girls Made Of? Dr. Korby tells Andrea "Now, uh, kiss Captain Kirk" . Thanks to large screen HD, his lip movements don't even remotely appear that he is saying "Cap't Kirk". Any ideas?

The script (dated July 27, 1966) has the line scripted as, "Kiss Captain Kirk, Andrea" rather than the aired, "Andrea, kiss Captain Kirk." I don't have the episode in front of me, so I'm not sure if that's any help, but there it is.

Re: Lip Readers, Need Help With Dr. Korby Line

Actually, I had wanted to post a similar request recently, so I hope nobody minds adding my request for a skilled lip reader.

In the opening title scene of "Journey to Babel" we hear Bill Shatner's voice introducing the situation while the footage shows him giving Sarek and his wife a tour through the ship.

Walking towards the engine room Bill Shatner looks and points up and explains something but we can't hear it.

I'd really love to know whether it's meaningful dialogue or else.

Bob

Sorry, just had a Scarface flashback.

I never got what Kirk said to McCoy about ther rest of the inspection (in the engine room) in Star Trek II. Subtitles say "later", but I am not sure.

No, you're thinking of the Disney movie Frozen.

Unlikely, since I've never seen it.

Re: Lip Readers, Need Help With Dr. Korby Line

...or Shatner is telling Lenard about Apollo 4, the first unmanned testflight of a Saturn V rocket in early November 1967, which probably was a topic during the production of this episode.

However, given the devotion to accurate "in-universe" detail during production (Talos IV Report, primary phaser viewscreen schematics for "Space Seed" and "The Trouble With Tribbles") and the probability that this scene with Kirk and Sarek could have made it into the final episode with intact "in-universe" dialogue, I'd really like to know what was said here.
