Oh, um, what's it called, "That Which Survives". The one with the three underground brainglobes. Right?

"Do you know why you're not afraid to die, Spock? You're more afraid of living. Each day you stay alive is just one more day you might slip and let your human half peek out. That's it, isn't it? Insecurity. Why, you wouldn't know what to do with a genuine, warm, decent feeling."

McCoy's the one talking, but that isn't the episode.

If it helps, they've been captured. If it doesn't help, Kirk isn't in the room with them.

No, but there are three words in the title.

Arrrgh! Shatner and his ego were in every bloody scene. How many Kirkless conversations could Bones and Spock possibly have?

How about The Paradise Syndrome? Kirk spends the entire episode off banging hot transplanted-human chick.

Edit: Changed "McCoy" to "Spock". Bones *is* McCoy.

I'm disqualified since I looked this up (I thought Sa'ar was right, and wanted to confirm). Nah, I think you should give a bigger hint -- the correct episode wouldn't have been among my first ten guesses based on the quote alone.

Even for McCoy, this one's really harsh. Bad enough as a personal attack and borderline racist to boot. But then, that's what made the TOS characters so real. Gene would never have let his characters talk this way about each other in the TNG days.

Borderline racism? How about Patterns of Force (Space Nazis!)

Edit: Or Catspaw. They got captured in that one too.

(Anyone else wanna guess?)

At this rate I'm just going to start at the pilot and guess each episode systematically.

Yeah, I had to Google it and I wouldn't have gotten that one either. Obviously I have to get back to watching TOS over lunch.

Not Patterns of Force, but a more ancient Earth society than the Nazis.

Sorry, that was the best hint I could think of. I'm not very good at giving hints.

LOL. Well, Kirk was busy being complimented by one of the local high men on the totem pole. Maybe that's how Kelley and Nimoy got to have the scene to themselves.

Okay, NAHTMMM, you've officially stumped the panel. Can you reveal the ep and pick a new quote, please?

It's from "Bread and Circuses".

Since KJ and I will be on a trip for the next week, I award Sa'ar the Trying Really Hard Prize, which consists of giving everyone the next quote to guess.

"It happened."

I'll give you a hint up front: that's Geordi, insisting really hard that something he remembers occurring did in fact occur.
