Watched a little bit of Star Trek this weekend. Perhaps I was stoned, but I was struck by this profound, perhaps quintessential, Spock quote. From Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (yeah I know, certainly not the best story line but whatever):
Spock’s mom: Spock, does the good of the many out weigh the good of the one?
Spock: I would accept that as an axiom.
He would accept that as an axiom. Now that is fucking hilarious, right? And here is where I should also provide support from McCoy: “Goddammit!”
Ok and now that I’ve looked it up to get it just right, one last quote because this is some funny shit. This is the scene when Kirk, McCoy, and Spock are camping out, just before sleeping and after a round of Row, Row, Row Your Boat:
Kirk: We’re on leave, you can call me Jim.
Kirk: Yes, Spock?
Spock: Life…is not a dream.
Kirk: Go to sleep, Spock.
