    Spock cries with one eye instead of two. Yes, I know, it looks more memorable, and since 1989 or so it's been a staple in movies, but who among us has this capability?
    Illogic at its greatest. IS it possible?

    He tried to route power from one eye tear support to the logical circuits, but it ended up in his vocal cords.

    One Human eye for the crying, one Vulcan eye for the not-crying. THAT'S HOW INTERSPECIES GENETICS WORKS, DAMMIT!

    Do people walk around in daily life screaming "plot hole" at random things they think are wrong?

    No, they just think they're being clever.

    Maybe the plot hole in his other eye is blocked.

    When a beloved pet or lab experiment of mine dies, I cry. But I don't always cry from both eyes at the same time. Sure, they both get a bit watery, but gravity, variances in capillary action, and the vagaries of air currents often get one leaking well in advance of the other.

    Besides, you forget Spock is half human. Clearly, that was his human half crying, as ITL notes.

    A lot of Trek fans tend to moan at the smallest of things but how many eyes a characters cries from must surely rank as the weirdest :lol:

    I know you're not serious.

    But when you're crying, both eyes tear up and sometimes only the tear drops from one eye. Especially if you're trying to hold back the tears, happened to me at a funeral once without me realising it.

    Why are we acting like this is a new thing?

    It's probably where they got the idea for the single tear! :lol:

    It's not a new thing, of course. It's been all over the place since Denzel Washington in GLORY, and maybe it did start with Nimoy. But ever since then, EVERY film, EVERY time, single tear. It's a cliche now. Did Robert Wise make it one tear in the Director's Cut, but two in the original 1979 version? In this case I don't recall Nimoy single-tearing, thus I ask.

    That's probably because Spock's crying was cut out completely in the original 1979 version of TMP, reinstated in the extended 1983 TV version (and later the Director's Cut).

    Jeez, it didn't start with Nimoy and there's nothing remarkable about it happening in Glory along with hundreds of other films. Are you actually at all familiar with movies?
