There Was A Freakish Man Who Had A Freakish Smile
Kirk orders Rand to bring the same dietary salad to Bones. Bones puts a stop to this by saying that he only eats after the crew eats. Is that a take-off on the saying that a captain of a ship sleeps only after his crew sleeps? Kirk thanks Rand, and she leaves. On the comm system, Beetle prepares to put the crew through more paces. "When I get my hands on the headquarters genius that assigned me a female yeoman --" Kirk starts. Either he's trying to invoke the whole asinine "female driver" analogy, which...don't even get me started, or he's saying that the very fact of his irresistibility means female yeomen will hover over and annoy him. Either way, it's sexist. "What's the matter, Jim, don't you trust yourself?" Bones wonders. I love Bones. Kirk pulls a face until we hear Sulu ordering an alert and repeating that it is not a drill. Kirk calls the Bridge, and Spock tells him they're picking up an object. Kirk says he's on his way. He tosses Yeoman Rand's underwear on top of his salad before walking out. Bones just sits there and shakes his head. I agree -- what way to ruin a good plate of arugula.
