Got you covered.
Spock yells at Marcus: "This is a Plot Hole!"
Khan yells at Nyota: "I love you!"
Jim yells at Marcus: "Double dumbass on you!"
Scotty: "Technobabble is dumb!"
Pavel: "I look hot in red. We Russians inwented red!"
Hikaru: "I hate sushi!"
Nyota: "Vulcans are hot. Khans are not!"
Carol: "I don't have Jim's baby. it's Faaaaake!"
Bones: "I'm a doctor, not a proctologist!"
Anyone: "This all seems...familiar..."
I've got a bad feeling about this!
Khan: I am....your Father!!!
Hello, my name is James Tiberius Kirk. You killed my father; prepare to die.
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."
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.
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.
"We can't raise New Vulcan."
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.
Dr. McCoy: Damn it, Jim! ...I love you.
So damage the film for the sake of a pointless cameo?
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
(John Harrison) My name is ... Shinzon!
*long awkward pause as no one knows or cares what he's on about*
*also, a tumbleweed*
(John Harrison): My name is…Ringo McCartney. (cue "Octopus' Garden")
Separate names with a comma.
