** Their argument over who endures the torture is a platonic example of ActOfTrueLoveStalemate.

** Kirk vs. Spock in "[[Recap/StarTrekS2E1AmokTime Amok Time]]" is the other classic example. Spock is {{Badass}} enough when he's in his right mind. Spock ''driven beyond the point of insanity'' by his mating instinct is horrifying for Kirk and [=McCoy=]!

* BluffingTheAuthorities: The episode "City on the Edge of Forever". After Kirk and Spock go back in time to 1930's New York City they're about to steal some clothing to replace their Enterprise uniforms but meet a police officer and have to explain Spock's pointed Vulcan ears. They come up with a story that Spock is Chinese and had a childhood accident involving a mechanical rice picker and plastic surgery, but the cop doesn't buy it.

* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: In the episode "Operation - Annihilate", Spock is temporarily blinded when they test a cure for a neural parasite on him before using it to free a planetary population. In the novelization of that episode, the planet is freed from the infection before Spock goes through the procedure, which does not blind him.

* {{Badass}}: ''Everyone''. Admittedly, some of the supporting characters don't come into full bloom until the movies, but still.

** In the episode "[[Recap/StarTrekS1E4TheNakedTime The Naked Time]]", Kirk does this to Spock. After several slaps, Spock finally retaliates and sends Kirk flying across the room. It does seem to work though.
** Kirk attempts it on [=McCoy=], who is under the influence of the LotusEaterMachine in "[[Recap/StarTrekS1E21TheReturnOfTheArchons The Return of the Archons]]". This one isn't so successful.
