"I had the most startling dream. You were trying to tell me something but I couldn't hear you."

"Why not, did you lose your cell phone again?"

"I do not lose my cell phones. They just disappear."

"Yes, usually when you are out searching for little green men. Oops, sorry, I know you're sensitive about that ... "

"See, you still can't hear me. What I'm trying to tell you is that it would be illogical for us to protest against our natures, don't you think?"

"When have we ever done that? You are the way you are. And I'm the way I am. It's what makes us such a good team. You're acting kind of strange, even for you, Spock. You aren't having one of those funky psychic episodes again are you?"

"Chapel ... please."

"Spock. Why are you acting this way? What are you doing? Okay, back off mister, don't make me draw my weapon!"

"Chapel, you don't understand."

"I understand this -- once again we're on one of your wild goose chases and now we're heading back to your home again, which by the way is why I'm here -- to tell you that the ship is headed forr Vulcan, where we will no doubt find your father involved in some vast government conspiracy and your mother consorting with our mortal enemy. Oh, and some other clue about your long lost sister will be dropped while we are there."

"Chapel, I don't have a long lost sister."

"Yeah, just like you don't have a long lost brother either. I have my sources, Spock. The lone phaser men don't work for you exclusively, you know!"

"So we're going home to Vulcan? "

"Yes."

"Then, perhaps you could make me some soup, Chapel."

"Make you some soup? Make you some soup??? It's always about you. Never mind the things I've lost. Never mind the sacrifices I've made. Or how my relationship with you has made me the laughing stock of headquarters. No, you want some soup? Get it yourself, Spock. I'm going to church."

"Chapel? Chapel, please don't go. Just one bowl?? Pleassssse."

"Can it, Spock. Go to bed and dream of aliens."

"I'll dream of you. I love you, Chapel."

"Oh, brother."
