The Seasonal "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" Friday Afternoon Quote

Question:) What do Katie Holmes' singledom and The Seasonal "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" Friday Afternoon Quote have in common?

Answer:) They were both insanely wonderful things that had to come to an end.

Yes, my dearly devoted readers, the time you have all been dreading like your daughter marrying a Colorado football player has arrived. After today, The Seasonal "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" Friday Afternoon Quote will be no more. Why is it ending today, you ask? Because your loyal blogger will be out of commission next Friday for two reasons. 1.) It is the Friday before my birthday weekend and, by God, I'm going to spend it doing whatever the hell I want to do. 2.) I have to "get ready" for the glorious Nebraska Football Season which kicks off the following day at precisely 2:30 PM. I am so friggin' excited for this season I'm literally having trouble waiting for it to start. So, tragically, the existence of everyone's favorite tradition is about to cease. But this is not a time for mourning. This is a time for celebration as I have strategically saved the finest Seasonal "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" Friday Afternoon Quote for last!

During the course of the movie, Bones and Scotty are put in charge of finding something in which they can hold the humpback whales aboard their spaceship. They find themselves at a plexiglass company with Scotty posing as an infamous Scottish Professor. The plant manager Nichols initially indicates he was unaware of the visit which sends the Professor into a hissy fit. But the plant manager tries to calm him down and then Bones jumps into the fray by stating, "He has agreed to give us a tour of the plant personally." Scotty beams. "He has? Well, that's different." And that leads to the funniest exchange in the entire movie. Drum-roll please................

Scotty: "Would it be all right if my assistant joined us?"
Nichols: "Of course."
Bones: (to Scotty) "Don't bury yourself in the part."
