Brother 1: Who's William Shatner?

Me: Dr. Spock.

Brother 1: He's my favorite person.

Me: Why?

Brother 1: He's the sexiest man alive.

Dad: You're a weirdo.

Brother 1: You've never stared into Dr. Spock's eyes like I have.

Nerd Gates Open:

Dr. Spock was not played by William Shatner. He was played by Leonard Nimoy, who also does the sound check at the Mugar Omni Theatre at the Boston Museum of Science as a slight joke.

William Shatner played the role of Captain James T. Kirk. Still acting now, you'll see him in Priceline commercials as well as his award winning performances on Boston Legal.

Nerd Gates Close.

Well, if you want to be really nerdy ...

Kristy, a coworker (and closet Trekkie) says that it's not Dr. Spock. It's Mr. Spock. There is only one doctor on the show, Bones, who says: "Dammit, Jim. I'm a doctor!" Dr. Spock writes baby books and is not at all affiliated with Star Trek.

I don't understand a word I just wrote.
