    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!!!

    Continuing Spock:

    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.

    KIRK [OC]: No. No, no, you'd better not. Any disturbance might bring down the rest of the wall.

    [Cavern]

    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,
    (off camera)

    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.
