What does Kirk need with a toupee?
We must have encountered a temporal distortion, because suddenly it's night and Bones is clanging a triangle for dinner. Kirk laughingly tells him to "cut it out" since they're right there, "and we're starving," and he sticks his nose job into the pot on the fire. Spock leans in to examine the food and asks, "Bipodal seeds, doctor?" "Beans, Spock!" Bones corrects him. "But no ordinary beans -- they're from an old Southern recipe handed down to me by my father, and if you stick your Vulcan nose up at these, you're not only insulting me but generations of McCoys." Spock says that he has little choice but to sample McCoy's beans; he takes a bite and says, "Surprisingly good. It does have a flavoring I'm not familiar with." Bones grins and says it's a secret ingredient. Kirk asks if he has any more of that "secret ingredient," and Bones passes a flask over. Spock raises an eyebrow, "Am I to understand that your secret ingredient is alcohol?" "Whisky, Tennessee whisky, Spock," Bones informs him. "Care for a snort?" "Beans and whisky, an explosive combination," Kirk says, and Spock makes a mental note not to sleep in the captain's tent that night. Kirk, channeling his Iowa frat days, says, "Do you think Spock can handle it?" Bones cracks that Spock's Vulcan metabolism would allow him to eat a bowl of termites and still be okay. Spock retaliates with, "As you're so fond of pointing out, Doctor, I'm half human." "Well, it certainly doesn't show," Bones says patronizingly. "Thank you," Spock zings. Bones comments that Spock never changes. Kirk takes a swig of whisky and exhales. You know, outside of Hollywood, I don't think I've ever seen anyone drink whisky and do that dramatic exhaling thing that male actors always seem to do.
