Seeing that I've now mentioned that movie twice, I should share something with you. There's a scene where Olivia de Havilland as Virginia Cunningham is being interrogated by a panel of psychiatrists to see if she's ready to be released. She can't remember her social security number at one point and gets panicked. I got panicked as well, because I didn't know my social security number and was certain I would be put away for that if anyone ever found out. I was ten.
Kirk looks shiftily at everyone. Dr. Adams wants to get back to the toast. He hands out drinks but excludes Lethe, saying, "You'll forgive us, Lethe." She nods almost servilely, but doesn't leave the room. "To all mankind," Dr. Adams toasts. "May we never find space so vast, planets so cold, hearts and minds so empty that we cannot fill them with love and warmth." Throughout the toast, Lethe's oddly shadowed face seems to be staring daggers at Dr. Adams. "Is this a dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand?" Dr. Mathra recites as he strides about the room, stamping everything in sight with a big red "Stanford" stamp.
Sickbay. The Sweaty-Toothed Madman continues to sweat and act mad in front of Spock and Bones. He insists that he's not a criminal and does not require the neural neutralizer. Spock leans in. "Neural neutralizer?" he repeats. I think blue really is Nimoy's color -- he would have looked sallow in yellow, although I could see him pulling off red with his brunet tones. Spock tries to find out what a neural neutralizer is, but all he gets from the Sweaty-Toothed Madman is "a device," "store," "control panel," "a light," and "the light." The Sweaty-Toothed Madman gets quite agitated at having seen the light. Spock wants to know what happens when Carol Ann walks toward the light, but the Sweaty-Toothed Madman just yells a lot of incomprehensibles. Spock holds him down and signals to Bones to hypospray him. Again we get a shot of the Sweaty-Toothed Madman's bio-signs, which still mean nothing to me.
