There’s a girl that seems to like Chekov
Kirk tries to tell everyone that he’s a spaceman, but they just act like he’s joking. It actually gets annoying how many times they try to tell people who they are, only to be responded to by thinking it’s a joke
Kirk tries to reason with the Earps, but it doesn’t go so well

Bones and Spock make a gas grenade. They decide to test it on Scotty, but it doesn’t work
