8. That's my favorite line from 'Wrath of Khan'.

Though Spock would find it insulting.

10. A little close to Roger Ebert's review

"In 2009, he was back in a new big-screen version of "Star Trek," this time playing an older Spock who meets his younger self, played by Zachary Quinto. Critic Roger Ebert called the older Spock "the most human character in the film.""

22. For a treat, here's Nimoy's impression of Shatner delivering that line...

The whole interview , by the way, is fascinating! The segment where Mr. Nimoy pokes fun at Bill Shatner's line reading starts around 14:26.

29. I feel like I have lost two dear friends

Spock was the first character on television I admired, I watched the show mostly for him.

Then I found other works by Leonard Nimoy, I liked his poetry a lot as well. I was aware of him being a very different individual from who he portrayed in Star Trek and I loved them both.
