Not to mention that they had three months on Vulcan to swap stories about the events of the previous film.
The only thing I can think of that makes sense is the Vulcan IDIC (Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations), which might be interpreted as Spock saying something like that.
Actually, I think James Blish was the first to give Spock a saying that he supposedly was known for, but was never actually spoken by Leonard Nimoy in the role: "A difference which makes no difference is no difference." It's been a long time since I looked at my 44-year-old (!) first edition of Spock Must Die!, but I'm pretty sure Spock says this more than once in that novel.
(Speaking of which: I can't imagine Blish would want to call his one-and-only original Trek novel by such a title, which isn't even accurate for the story. I mean, at most one Spock or the other supposedly would have to die - assuming a Thomas Riker-type solution to the dilemma couldn't have been found, with the variation that the duplicate would have to synthesize dextro- instead of levo- nutrients for himself. Has anyone ever heard what Blish might have titled his manuscript? Would his widow know?)
? My first edition copy of Spock Must Die! is only 40 years old. How did that happen?
All I know is that I bought mine in 1970, and it has a 1970 copyright date. Its cover has the mirror-reflected publicity photo of Spock holding an Erlenmeyer flask.
Mine must have sat on a shelf somewhere before it was brought to the book fair I bought it at. I got mine in '74.
