    MULHALL: A physician? In contrast to what we are, you are a prancing, savage medicine man. You dare defy one you should be on your knees worshipping? I could destroy you with a single thought.

    (McCoy is suddenly writhing in pain as he is surrounded by flames.)

    MULHALL: ..Stop! Sargon was right. The temptations within a living body are too great. Forgive me.

    MULHALL: Sargon? Where are you? I thought you destroyed by Henoch.

    MULHALL: Yes. Yes, I see. I understand. Just as we would have placed our consciousness within robots, Sargon has placed his into your vessel.

    [McCoy's office]

    (McCoy leaves the room, and the door shuts and locks behind him. The ship shakes as he activates his desk monitor.)

    MCCOY: This is Sickbay. Get me-

    (The door opens, and Chapel walks out, staring blankly ahead.)

    MCCOY: Nurse Chapel, what in the devil?

    [Sickbay]

    (He goes back into the ward.)
    MCCOY: Jim? Are you all right?

    MULHALL: She is now with Sargon, Doctor. I'm Ann Mulhall, back in my own body.

    (Then we see the three blackened and broken spheres.)

    MCCOY: Jim, the receptacles. Spock's consciousness was in one of them.

    MCCOY: What are you talking about? There is no Spock to return to his body. You've killed a loyal officer, your best friend.

    Kirk: Bones, prepare a hypo. The fastest, deadliest poison to Vulcans. Spock's consciousness is gone. We must kill his body, the thing in it.

    [Bridge]

    (Uhura is screaming in terror before collapsing across her console. Chapel is standing rigid by the Captain's chair.)

    SPOCK: Must I make an example of you, too, Helm?

    (Kirk, Mulhall and McCoy enter.)

    SPOCK: Pain, Captain. And you, my dear?

    (As Kirk and Mulhall double over, McCoy dashes to Spock's side, ready to inject him.)

    SPOCK: Fortunately, Doctor, I know every thought of every mind around me. See? Take the hypo from him. And inject him with it.

    (But she injects Spock/Henoch instead! He leaps from his seat.)

    SPOCK: Fools. I'll simply transfer to another place, another body. Sargon! No, Sargon, please. Let me. Let me transfer.

    (He falls to the floor and his victims are freed from their pain.)





    ^ (Does this all count as "a single" line? Without interruption by another character, after all.)

    (I think it does)

    Kirk: Spock. My friend Spock. If there'd only been another way.

    SARGON [OC]: I could not allow your sacrifice of one so close to you.
    (Lights dim and glow, then Chapel wobbles.)
