    I'd delete the Khan! yell. Was this Abrams' "valentine to the fans?" because it stuck out like a sore thumb. All the stuff that seemed like it was cut of TWOK and flipped the Kirk and Spock roles.

    I agree with the theory that if they just added some meat on the lines. Everyone in this movie and the first one seem to be in too big of a rush to say more than three words.

    All of which is to say that the one line you'd add is... ?

    I would change the line that Harrison was Khan and add the following:

    "My name was John Harrison. When our original leader--Khan Noonien Singh--died, I took over in his name. Now I am Khan."

    If you want it
    Millie: Hello!
    John: Hello.
    Millie: Oh, no, wait! You are-
    John: I'm not.
    Millie: Yes, you are, I know you are!
    John: I'm not, no.
    Millie: Well, you look just like him.
    John: Do I? You're the first one that's said that, ever.
    Millie: Yes, you do, look! [Shines an overhead light to a mirror on the wall for John to look at]
    John: [After looking in the mirror] Nah, my eyes are lighter. See, me nose...
    Millie: Yes, you're nose is very...
    John: Is it?
    Millie: I would say so.
    John: I know him better, you know.
    Millie: I do not. He's only a casual aquaintance.
    John: That's what you say.
    Millie: What have you heard.
    John: [Whispers in her ear] It's all over the place.
    Millie: Is it? Is it really?
    John: Mmmhmm. I would have none of it, though. I stood up for you.
    Millie: I knew I could rely on you.
    John: Thanks.
    Millie: [Looks at John with her glasses, then nods] You don't look like him at all.
    [Jon shyly nods, puts his hat on and walks up the stairs, briefly looking back]
    John: She looks more like him than I do.

    Okay, its more than one line.

    He's not going to live forever you know. This might be it, the last time we see him as Spock.

    That is pretty much what I had hoped would happen, if they were doing a Khan plot.

    Could have worked (Khan is a title as well as a name) but I'm fine with the way it actually was.

    Pointless? I was swooning right there in my seat! I spilled my popcorn when he appeared! Yes I had no idea he was going to be in it, it was lovely. LOVELY.

    Nimoy's appearance was one of the many highlights of the movie for me
