    SHAW: Doctor, you are, on the record, an expert in psychology, especially space psychology. Patterns which develop in the close quarters of a ship during long voyages in deep space.

    SHAW: You have just heard the testimony of your own personnel officer, that it was an action of the then Ensign Kirk, which placed an unerasable blot on the record of the then Lt. Finney. Psychologically, Doctor, is it possible that Lt. Finney blamed Kirk for the incident?

    SHAW: He could have hated Kirk down through the years, blamed him for being passed over for promotion, blamed him for never being given a command of his own, correct?

    SHAW: Now, let us hypothesize, Doctor. Is it normal for a person to return affection for hatred?

    SHAW: Do we not tend to at first resent and then actively dislike the person who hates us?

    SHAW: Hypothetically. Would not Captain Smith begin to hate Lieutenant Commander Jones once he learned that Lieutenant Commander Jones hated and detested him?

    SHAW: Then I ask you, is it not possible that Captain Kirk became aware of Lt. Commander Finney's hatred toward him and perhaps, even involuntarily, began to reciprocate?
