YOUNG SPOCK: Yes, father.
SAREK: You constantly display your emotions. You have even been seen fighting in the street.
SAREK: The time draws near when you will have to decide whether you will follow Vulcan or human philosophy. Vulcan offers much. No war, no crime. Order, logic and control in place of raw emotions and instinct. Once on the path you choose, you cannot turn back.
AMANDA: I hope you were not disturbed by my son's behavior, Selek.
SPOCK: No, my lady Amanda. Any child has much to learn. My young cousin has a more difficult road to travel than others.
(And this time around, we can all imagine Jane Wyatt's voice instead of Majel's )
Amanda: You seem to understand my son better than my husband.
SPOCK: It is difficult for a father to bear less than perfection in his son. Spock will find his way.
Amanda: I hope so. I respect Vulcan and all it's traditions, but it's a demanding life.
SPOCK: The boy goes through the kahs-wan ordeal soon, does he not?
Amanda: Next month.
SPOCK: But tomorrow is the twentieth day of Tasmeen.
AMANDA: Yes. Is something wrong?
SPOCK: I seem to have lost track of time.
SAREK: Soon you will undergo your test of adulthood in the desert. To survive for ten days without food, water or weapon on Vulcan's Forge will demand more of you than anything ever has. To fail once is not a disgrace for others. If you fail, there will be those who will call you a coward all your life. I do not expect you to fail.
YOUNG SPOCK: What if I do, father?
Sarek: There is no need to ask that question. You will not disappoint me. Not if your heart and spirit are Vulcan.
