YOUNG SPOCK: I had to see if I could do it. A personal test. I cannot fail.
SPOCK: That is your father's wish?
YOUNG SPOCK: Yes, and my mother's. They, they confuse me. Father wants me to do things his way, and Mother says I should. But then she goes...
Spock: She is a human woman, with strong emotion and sensitivities. She embarrasses you with those traits, and you are afraid when you see them in yourself.
YOUNG SPOCK: How did you know?
Spock: There is some Human Blood in my family line. It is not fatal. What you do not yet understand yet, Spock, is that Vulcans do not lack emotion. It is only that ours is controlled. Logic offers a serenity humans seldom experience in full. We have emotions but we deal with them and do not let them control us.
(I-Chaya collapses with a whimper)
YOUNG SPOCK: I-Chaya!
Spock: The le-matya struck him with its poison claws in the fight.
All the stories are self contained so there's no spoilers for other stories. The story with Thelin starts at the end of Star Trek II and goes from there.
YOUNG SPOCK: Is he dying?
Personal log. Something unexpected has again occurred. The sehlat, I-Chaya, was struck by the poisonous claws of the le-matya he fought. He is dying, unless we can find a healer, and soon.
SPOCK: We cannot get him back to the city to a healer. He is too large to move.
Young Spock: Then what?
SPOCK: You are a Vulcan. What is the logical thing to do?
Young Spock: I can bring a healer here.
SPOCK: It is a long journey across the desert. There are many dangers. I will go.
Young Spock: No. This is my duty. No one else can do it for me. Will you stay with him?
(Spock nods 'yes' and Young Spock heads back to the city)
SPOCK: This did not happen before. My life decision was made without the sacrifice of yours, old friend. I know there is pain. I can help a little. Sleep now.
(Young Spock continues his trek through the Vulcan desert, avoids a carnivorous plant, and makes it to another city where he finds the home of a healer)
Healer: The hour is late. I trust your errand is urgent?
YOUNG SPOCK: Most urgent, Healer. My sehlat fought a le-matya in the Llangon foothills. He suffered a small wound, but the poison of its claws is working in him now. Please, you must come with me. He needs your healing.
HEALER: You are Spock, son of Sarek, are you not?
YOUNG SPOCK: Yes, Healer.
