'''Kirk:''' (''touched and humbled'') Gentlemen, may the wind be at our backs. Stations, please.
** It seems that at least one of the writers of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' novelizations enjoyed this scene too. It's likely that a scene in the novel ''Ghost Ship'' is a take on it. When Picard needs someone to command the saucer section so the 900+ passengers of the ship can escape the destructive world-eating entity bearing down on them, (while the battle section distracts it, giving itself only an 18% chance of survival), not a single member of his bridge crew volunteers to take the mission - which would offer them a better chance of survival. Picard gets as choked up as the stoic leader ever does.
---> '''Picard''': ...I'm very proud of all of you.

** During the ceremony, couple of quick shots show Saavik and Sarek with their heads bowed as well. ''Every'' Vulcan in that temple was pouring their very soul into the effort to bring Spock back.

--> '''Bones''': I'm gonna tell you something that I... never thought I'd ever hear myself say. But it seems I've...missed you. And I don't know if I could stand to lose you again.
* The scene on the [[EarthShatteringKaboom self-destructing]] Genesis planet. Bloody-faced and traumatized by [[spoiler: his son's death]], our hero drags the katra-less Spock to his feet and holds him close as he orders transport. [[{{Tagline}} "How far would]] [[Film/FreeWilly you go for a friend?"]], indeed.
* [=McCoy=] comforting Kirk during his WhatHaveIDone moment as he watches [[spoiler: the ''Enterprise'' self destruct.]]
-->'''Kirk''': My God, Bones... What have I done?\\
'''[=McCoy=]''': What you had to do. What you always do. Turn death into a fighting chance to live.

* It's missed in the movie, but mentioned in the novelization that the Katra ritual takes hours, which is why T'Lar looks utterly exhausted as she's being carried away. The heartwarming moment comes from the fact that while the rest of the Enterprise crew sleeps through it (look close and you can see them getting up at the end of the ritual) Kirk stays awake the entire time, keeping a vigil for his friend.

* Kirk offering his hand to Kruge while the latter is hanging off a cliff. This reaffirms everything we know about James T. Kirk: that, even as furious as he is at Kruge ordering the [[spoiler: execution of David]], Kirk will still try to do the honorable thing and save his life. Of course, Kruge spurns the offer and Kirk finally does away with him but the the very fact he even tried shows Kirk remains an OfficerAndAGentleman.
