SPOCK: Should we separate?
KIRK: Two tunnels, two of us. We separate. (Kirk walks off down a real tunnel, while Spock has to hunch down to move through one of the new circular tunnels. Further on, Kirk's tunnel becomes circular too, then it opens into an area with flat floor, equipment and silicon nodules.)
KIRK: Mister Spock!!!
SPOCK: Yes, Captain.
KIRK: I've found a whole layer of these silicon nodules of yours, hundreds of them.
SPOCK (off camera): Indeed? I find that most illuminating, Captain.
SPOCK: Be absolutely certain you do not damage any of them.
SPOCK: Only a theory I have.
the Horta causes a cave in in front of Kirk
Spock: Captain! Are you all right? Jim?! JIM!
Kirk: Yes Mr. Spock, allright. We seem to have had a cave in.
SPOCK: I could phaser you out.
KIRK [OC]: No. No, no, you'd better not. Any disturbance might bring down the rest of the wall.
KIRK: Besides, it isn't necessary. The chart said the tunnels meet further on.
Spock: Very well, but I find it extremely disquieting that your roof choose that particular moment to collapse. Please proceed with extreme caution. I shall quicken my pace.
KIRK: Very well, Mister Spock. I'll meet you at the other end.
(Just then a part of the wall vanishes, and their strange adversary emerges, which looks rather like a large burnt pizza. The pair have a stand off, with the creature approaching when Kirk lowers his phaser, and backing off when he raises it. The communicator beeps.)
KIRK: Kirk here.
In a tunnel
Spock: Captain, I've just read some fresh signs,
The creature is in this area, I'll take a life form reading.
KIRK: It's not necessary, Mr. Spock. I know exactly where the creature is.
SPOCK: Where, Captain?
KIRK: Ten feet away from me.
SPOCK: Kill it, Captain. Quickly.
KIRK: It's not making any threatening moves, Spock.
SPOCK: You don't dare take the chance, Captain.
