You know what? Star Trek III: The Search for Spock is better than most people give it credit for.
With the exception of the upholstery Chekov is wearing, of course.

Journey to Babel has to be one of my all time favorite episodes. This is just gorgeous.
I want to cry every time I see this. That’s Deforest Kelley and Brent Spiner, aka Bones and Data, in the pilot episode of The Next Generation. He lovingly makes fun of Vulcans, being old, and then says that the new Enterprise has the right name, and to treat the ship right, like a lady, and that she’ll always bring you home. He’s an Admiral, and refuses to take transporter beams. He’s also 137 years old.
McCOY: Have you got some reason why you want my atoms scattered all over space, boy?
DATA: No sir. But at your age, sir, I thought you shouldn’t have to put up with the time and trouble of a shuttlecraft.
McCOY: Hold it right there, boy.
McCOY: What about my age?
DATA: Sorry, sir. If that subject troubles you -
McCOY: Troubles me? What’s so damned troublesome about not having died? How old you think I am, anyway?
DATA: 137 years, Admiral, according to Starfleet records.
McCOY: Explain how you remember that so… exactly.
DATA: I remember every fact I am exposed to, sir.
McCOY: I don’t see no points on your ears, boy. But you sound like a Vulcan.
DATA: No sir. I am an android.
McCOY (laughs): Almost as bad.
DATA: I thought it was generally accepted, sir, that Vulcans are an advanced and most honorable race.
McCOY: Yeah, they are. And damned annoying at times.
DATA: Yes sir.
McCOY: Well, this is a new ship. But she’s got the right name. Now you remember that, you hear?
DATA: I will sir.
McCOY: You treat her like a lady, and she’ll always bring you home.

Was DeForest Kelley pretending to stab William Shatner while Kristie Alley and Merritt Butrick looked on at your birthday party?
No? Then your birthday party sucked.
