Picture is link to the full episode but for the Spock/Chapel stuff just watch the video under the cut.
I was way too lazy to make a new one so this does have scenes from "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" but includes others as well.
Instead of a transcript there happens to be the actual script.
Some highlights from the script:
I would have preferred for it to read, "Spock cannot hold back the unrepentant jealously boiling underneath his cool Vulcan exterior," but this sentiment is nice too.
Spock's glance toward Christine during her exit isn't mentioned in this script; must have come from Nimoy.
While "The Naked Time" was the first time Majel Barret appeared as Christine, "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" was where the character was first conceived and where we find out her last name is Chapel. This was the script that brought Majel on to the show:
"I was watching each of these scripts coming in, because I knew what I was going to do; they weren't going to
keep me out of this thing. It didn't happen until about the fifth or sixth script came in [‘What Are Little Girls
Made Of?']. There was a character by the name of Christine; originally her name wasn't Chapel—it was
something French. I had just finished a play using the last name of Chapel, and I just liked it so much. I.
thought, ‘Christine Chapel; ah, that sounds like Sistine Chapel. There's a little play on words.' The rest of the
story stayed the same—she was this doctor going out after her fiancé"
‘After you've been canned from a part in a pilot, the network doesn't want to see you again. So I bleached my
hair very, very blonde one morning and I went over and sat in Gene's office talking to Penny [Unger], who was
his secretary He came in and nodded at Penny, said ‘Good morning' to us and walked into his office. I thought.
'Well, that didn't make much of an impression at all; I'm going to lose this battle.' He came out again, gave
some papers to Penny and looked at me and nodded again, then turned and went hack into his room. And then
the door opened and he said, ‘Majel?!' 1 said ‘Gene. if I can fool you, I can fool NBC.' He said. ‘You're right,
obviously' And we pulled it off. We did it."
In this episode there is no indication of Chapel having feelings for Spock, yet "The Naked Time" would contradict this. From the interview with Majel we can see Christine was first conceived within this episode. Why do you think the writers/producers/directors would have her fall for Spock when they all knew she had a fiancé?
What do you think of Christine in this episode? It's supposed to revolve all around her love life yet she hardly does anything. Some have been angry that her loyalty to Kirk wavered. Should she have been allowed to stay on the Enterprise?
I always think Spock looks a little sad when it's revealed Korby is still alive. Am I seeing things that aren't there?
What's up with Spock interrupting Chapel and Kirk's conversation with his presence? What about watching her leave?
Kirk tells Spock about Chapel's plans with no prompting. Is Kirk a Spock/Chapel shipper?
