Ok. Since someone somewhere in this long list of questions said something about this movie and since I watched it this weekend, I thought I'd bring this up. There is one point in the film where Spock says that he is "understandably curious" about such and such test results. This seems like an odd thing to say about oneself, since it seems that it would be difficult to judge whether others would fully understand why one is curious. Now, we all know that Vulcans are pretty logical. But is Spock's statement a logical thing to say?

When one has spent a year training a class of cadets, it is perfectly logical to be curious if your cadets are successful.

Old, Tired Kirk  
Sooo.... you're saying that your ego is on the line with your cadet's rating?

Old, Tired Spock  
As you know, I have no ego to bruise.

Old, Tired Kirk  
So then why do you care if your cadets pass?

Old, Tired Spock  
With a secondary evaluation of my cadets, I can better prepare for the next class.

Old, Tired Kirk  
Oh please. Ego, ego, ego!

Old, Tired Spock  
Captain, with all due respect, shut up.
