“Someone got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning,” McCoy said brightly when Jim snapped at him for making fun of Spock.
“Doctor, I assure you that the captain was been on the same side of the bed for well over a year,” Spock piped up.
Even Jim, who’d been determined to stay angry as long as McCoy was on the bridge had to laugh at the shocked faces of the crew around them.
“And just how does ze kommender know zat?” Chekov asked Sulu as a bright red McCoy fled the bridge before he could be let in on any more disturbing secrets.
“Trust me, he’s got a lot of privileges you guys don’t,” Jim winked at his crew. His irritation had completely been forgotten. Spock’s literal interpretations sometimes came in handy.
