movie in a movie

Whatever happened to chivalry? Does it only exist in 80’s movies? I want John Cusack holding a boombox outside my window. I wanna ride off on a lawnmower with Patrick Dempsey. I want Jake from Sixteen Candles waiting outside the church for me. I want Judd Nelson thrusting his fist into the air because he knows he got me. Just once I want my life to be like an 80’s movie, preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason. But no, no, John Hughes did not direct my life.

“If my surmise is correct, those boots will cling to the killers’ necks like a pair of Tiberian bats.”

~ Spock, The Undiscovered Country 


Folks, I want you to take a good look at this quote.

“… like a pair of Tiberian bats.”

^^^

This is a simile.

Isn’t it a little out of character for a Vulcan to employ a figure of speech?

Clearly, Leonard McCoy’s notorious usage of figurative language has rubbed off on Spock.
