** A {{Downplayed}} example in the pizza joint--Gillian starts tearing up at the thought of saying goodbye to the whales while worrying about their survival in the open sea--and then Kirk gets a call on his "pocket pager." His pathetic attempt to be discreet about it, as well as the dialogue between him and Scotty (including Scotty calling him "Admiral", just like Spock), have Gillian clearly wondering just what the hell she's gotten herself involved in.

** A captured Chekov plays the fool for his captors, escapes despite his phaser malfunctioning (complete with wacky noises), leads the crew of an aircraft carrier on a merry chase to upbeat music - then runs out of carrier and falls onto concrete hard enough to be fatally injured - at least, by 20th century medical standards...

* ListOfTransgressions: After saving the world, Kirk and his crew appear before the Federation Council, with the president reading the list of offenses they committed over the last two movies. Kirk pleads guilty to all of them, and then the president dismisses all but one, using that to demote Kirk to "Captain"--[[{{Unishment which made him very happy]].

* MoodWhiplash: When Gillian starts showing videos of actual whale disassembling. In theaters, the audiences often got ''very'' quiet at this point. Sorta-mimicked in the Novelization, in a way: most of the tour group watch the videos without much trouble, but Kirk and Spock are disturbed to say the least, because to them such violence was uncommon in their century.

* RapidFireTyping: Scotty goes from not even understanding the concept of a computer without voice commands to apparently being able type 3 million words per minute. Also combines with HollywoodHacking -- the action on the computer's screen doesn't even remotely synch with his keystrokes.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: There was actually a scene in the script for Sulu to steal the helicopter by at first taking the pilot away from the helicopter and then take a running leap into the helicopter while he was away. Unfortunately/fortunately, George Takei had taken place in a marathon and was too sore to do the scene, and with only few days to complete the film the scene was scrapped
* RefugeInAudacity: Chekov, in obviously Russian accent, going around the streets asking about "nuclear wessels" and ''getting away with it.'' Doesn't help him when he actually gets found on board one, however.

** Chekhov and Uhura illegally boarding a US Navy vessel and stealing power (for the purposes of recrystallizing the dilithium matrix in the warp drive allowing them to get home); then Kirk and co. removing a criminal suspect under arrest (Chekhov, who gets captured in the process) from police custody.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodSandwich: Actually averted in the restaurant; for once a movie remembers that that there's an interval of time between ordering and receiving food that they can put dialogue into. And when Kirk bolts just as the pizza arrives, Gillian has the waiter box it to go.

* {{Troll}}: Scotty referring to Bones as "his assistant". Scotty's look after implies that he said it just to mess with him. Also one wonders if Spock's misuse of swears didn't become purposeful over time, especially after Kirk criticized him for it.

* TroubleFromThePast: The humans of the past hunted whales to extinction and that turned out to be a bad idea.
