Funny: Star Trek: The Animated Series
  • The "KIRK IS A JERK" moment from "The Practical Joker."
  • "The Practical Joker" again: the computer has fun ordering Kirk around.
    Computer: Say 'please'.
    Spock: Compliance would seem to be the logical response, Captain.
    Kirk (from between his teeth): PLEASE.
    Computer: Say 'pretty please with sugar on.'
  • In the episode "The Jihad", from Spock no less.
    Em/3/Green: We'll all die here!
    Spock: A statistical probability.
    Lara: You ever quote anything beside statistics, Vulcan?
    Spock: Yes, but philosophy and poetry are not appropriate here.
  • "Sometimes, Spock, I wish I'd been a librarian."
  • "Bem". After being captured and caged by the local Lizard Folk:
    Spock: I assume that's a rhetorical question, Captain, not requiring an answer.
    Kirk: I was just expressing my curiosity at our ability to get into these kinds of situations.
    Spock: Fate, Captain, fate..
    Kirk: Fate, Spock?
    Spock: I believe that's the correct Earth term.
    Kirk: Well, why don't you try your, uh, Vulcan Nerve Pinch?
    Spock: Captain. I am only a Vulcan. There are limits.
  • "More Tribbles, More Troubles" is a Call Back to TOS's most hilarious episode, "The Trouble with Tribbles" and introduces a number of throw backs and new gags:
    • Remember the time in TOS when Kirk sat on a tribble? This time, there is a Running Gag where a large tribble sits in that chair. Two times, Kirk has to shove it off. The third time, though, it's too large to deal with, and he concedes: "I think I'll stand."
    • The Klingons use a new weapon to cripple the Enterprise and prepare it for boarding. So Kirk's intiates "Emergency Defense Plan B": Beam a bunch of huge tribbles onto the Klingon ship. The tribbles cover the Klingon transporters and generally raise havoc, making the move very effective. Perhaps the funnier part? It was Spock's idea.
    Spock: We could always throw tribbles at them.
    Kirk: Spock, I thought Vulcans didn't have senses of humor.
    Spock: They don't, Captain.
    • Koloth orders Korax to blast a giant tribble with a disruptor. The resultant blast causes it to explode into hundreds of little tribbles which bury them.
    Korax: Any other orders, sir?
    Koloth: Yes. Don't do that again. Ever.
    • The glommer, a critter that eats tribbles, meets a gigantic one and flees in terror.
    • Finally, at the end McCoy has begun to administer a cure to the tribbles which causes them not to reproduce endlessly or gather into colony balls. Kirk notices one up a chute and calls attention to it, but he has barely finished speaking when the ball disintegrates into individual tribbles and buries the captain once again. His reaction makes it funnier:
    Kirk: Some day I'll learn.
