SPOCK: I hardly find that fitting.
Kirk: Than a small boy and a very naughty one at that.
SPOCK: It will make a strange entry in the library banks.
Kirk: Then he was a very strange small boy. On the other hand, he was probably doing things comparable to the same mischievous pranks you played when you were a small boy.
SPOCK: Mischievous pranks, Captain?
Kirk: Yes. Dipping little girls curls in inkwells (WTF?!!!!) Stealing apples from neighbors trees. Tying cans on-
Kirk is stopped by the shocked expression on Spock's face.
Kirk: Forgive me, Mister Spock. I should have known better.
SPOCK: I shall be delighted, Captain.
Huzzah! Capital job, as always everyone.
nicely done folks!
Sacre bleu... another episode we blazed through!
Good job everyone. Great work and...."blazed through"?
Granted, we didn't get through it in less than twenty-four, but this episode was completed faster than the previous line-by-line thread.
You know I can't help myself anymore.
Captain's Log, Stardate, 43989.1, The Enterprise has arrived at Jouret IV In response to a distress signal from one of the Federation's outer most colonies.
I can't either...
Captain! I've lost complete control o' me bowels!
Anything from the surface?
No Sir. There have been no communications from the colony for over 12 hours.
Okay folks, shoot the mirror and watch out for moving planets, it's time for the randomizer!
The participants from our current thread are as follows:
2. Admiral Shran
9. Terran Empire
Those names should be in the order in which each person first posted to the thread. No "weight" is given for who posted more or less often.
And, now the moment you've all been waiting for! Random.org, give us some love!
Congratulations to you! We've had a lot of unusual things happen recently, BlueStuff getting the numbers a lot, the Number 1 coming up, and now the last number coming up!

Once a new episode has been chosen, I will fire up the next line-by-line thread in the appropriate forum and post the link here.
NOTE: As has been agreed, when a person is selected as the "chooser," they will have 48 hours to post their selection. After 48 hours, I will assume they "pass" and will re-run the randomization.
WOW! Been a while since I got to pick an episode. Lemme think on it a bit and I'll get back with an answer later in the day.
I took the liberty of inserting a Scotty dialogue line not actually in the episode....once. Would it be considered too disruptive if such bits exponentially increased from time to time, MST3K-style, whether they were italicized or boldfaced?
Good question, I personally didn't mind all that much. Sometimes I will do something like that, but it's always with the line from the episode that I'm posting. You didn't post an actual line from the episode, therefore weren't part of the list. Somebody else chimed in doing something similar, they were not included either. You weren't singled out.
If a lot of interruptions were to be made in future threads, I can't speak for anyone else, but I would not be happy about it. I think you're line was funny, but don't run that into the ground.
Separate names with a comma.
