KIRK: Bridge, have you found Mister Spock yet?
Scotty: If you wanted to chance odds of ten thousand to one, maybe, assuming we had a row of computers working weeks on the right formula....
UHURA: Mister Spock is not on the Bridge, Captain.
(In sickbay, McCoy is standing over Sulu, who he has just given a hypo shot of something to, Sulu is sitting upright, screaming at the top of his lungs until he finally calms down and seems to have come back to his senses)
Sulu: I... I was on the Bridge. (McCoy realizes the serum works and rushes over to the intercom, gently lifting Chapel out of the seat so he can sit in it) Hey Doc, what am I doing here?
MCCOY: McCoy to Bio. We've isolated it. Start preparing serum.
Harrison (giggling): What, Doctor?
MCCOY: It's water. Somehow on this planet, water's changed to a complex chain of molecules.
Harrison (giggling): What's that, Doctor?
MCCOY: That's how we missed it. It passed from man to man through perspiration. Once in the bloodstream, it acts like alcohol, depresses the centres of judgment, self-control. Now get someone to the lab. Tell them the serum works, and start preparing more.
(Unfortunately for McCoy, Harrison is too busy laughing his fool head off. Frustrated, McCoy turns off the intercom and heads out of sickbay for the lab himself. Before he can leave...)
Sulu: Doc, will you let me outta here, I'm alright!
SCOTT [OC]: Engineers, man your stations. Engine rooms, report. Cycling station, report. This will be an emergency restart of engines.
(McCoy snaps his fingers)
McCoy: Release him!
(In comes Kirk after a desperate search for Spock)
Kirk: Where have you been?! What happened?!
SPOCK: My mother. I could never tell her I loved her.
(Why? It happens. )
Kirk (incredulous): We've got four minutes, maybe five!
SPOCK: An Earth woman, living on a planet where love, emotion, is bad taste.
Kirk (desperately trying to get through to Spock): We've got to risk a full-power start! The engines were shut off, no time to regenerate them! Do you hear me? We've got to risk a full-power start!
SPOCK: I respected my father, our customs. I was ashamed of my Earth blood. (Kirk slaps him) Jim, when I feel friendship for you, I'm ashamed.
Kirk (hitting him repeatedly): You've got to hear me! (Spock finally catches his hand) We need a formula! We've got to risk implosion!
SPOCK: It's never been done! Understand, Jim. I've spent a whole lifetime learning to hide my feelings. (finally hits Kirk back)
(Kirk flies over the top of the table and rolls over the other side to the floor. After a moment, he stands up on that side, bloody lip and all, and faces Spock directly)
Kirk: We've got to risk implosion, it's our only chance!
