CHEKOV: Bridge. Navigation.
KIRK: Mister Chekov, lay in a course for Vulcan. Tell Engineering I want warp eight or better. Push her for all she'll take.
(Nurse Chapel leaves Sickbay, beaming.)
CHEKOV: Course already plotted. Laying it in, sir.
KIRK: I see. Very well. Carry on, Mister Chekov. Kirk, out
(Spock is lying on his bed, apparently asleep. Chapel thinks about touching him and then goes to leave.)
SPOCK: Miss Chapel.
Chapel: Yes, Mister Spock?
SPOCK: I had a most startling dream. You were trying to tell me something, but I couldn't hear you. It would be illogical for us to protest against our natures. Don't you think?
Chapel: I don't understand. (begins crying)
SPOCK: Your face is wet.
CHAPEL: I came to tell you that we are bound for Vulcan. We'll be there in just a few days.
SPOCK: Vulcan. Miss Chapel!
CHAPEL: My name is Christine.
SPOCK: Yes, I know, Christine. Would you make me some of that plomeek soup?
CHAPEL: Oh, I'd be very glad to do that, Mister Spock.
SPOCK: It is obvious that you have surmised my problem, Doctor. My compliments on your insight. Captain, there is a thing that happens to Vulcans at this time. Almost an insanity, which you would no doubt find distasteful.
Kirk: Would I? You've been most patient with my kinds of madness.
SPOCK: Then would you beam down to the planet's surface and stand with me? There is a brief ceremony.
Kirk: Is it permitted?
SPOCK: It is my right. By tradition, the male is accompanied by his closest friends.
