    McCoy: There's a growing imbalance of bodily functions. As if in our bodies, huge amounts of adrenaline were being constantly pumped into our blood stream. Now I can't find it in my bio-comps, Spock won't tell me what it is. But if it isn't stopped somehow... the physical and emotional pressures will simply kill him!

    MCCOY: He does, and he's as tightlipped about it as an Aldebaran Shellmouth. No use to ask him, Jim. He won't talk.

    KIRK: Stay. McCoy has given me his medical evaluation of your condition. He says you're going to die unless something is done. What? Is it something only your planet can do for you? Spock! You've been called the best first officer in the fleet. That's an enormous asset to me. If I have to lose that first officer, I want to know why.

    Spock: (walks around the cabin briefly contemplating what to say) It is a thing no out-worlder may know except those very few who have been involved. A Vulcan understands, but even we do not speak of it among ourselves. It is a deeply personal thing. Can you see that, Captain, and understand?

    Spock: Captain, there are some things that transcend even the discipline of the service.

    KIRK: You mean the biology of Vulcans? Biology as in reproduction? Well, there's no need to be embarrassed about it, Mister Spock. It happens to the birds and the bees.

    SPOCK: ...If they were, if any creature as proudly logical as us were to have their logic ripped from them as this time does to us. How do Vulcans choose their mates? Haven't you wondered?

    KIRK: I guess the rest of us assume that it's done quite logically.
