When I saw it live, Rick Green was better at doing Kirk, and the line used to prove humans’ worth to Kritchpoof was “We got rid of Brian Mulroney!”, which got a huge cheer from the audience.
“Did you ever see that episode of Star Trek where they use logic to defeat the alien computer?”
(This is a variation on another joke: “Did you ever see the episode of Gilligan’s Island where they almost get off the island?”)
That last panel… I do not remember the episode with unintelligible screaming and outrageous flirting.
The last panel needs a trollface on Kirk.
Or just a tribble on his shoulder…
I might start watching just for those.
It’s like the episode of twilight zone where you wake up and everything is the same but different.
Which one was that?
Oh, they were all like that.

This is genius:
my favourite thing about The Tholian Web is that during the usual
ridiculous end-of-episode banter/flirting, the camera actually cuts to
chekov and sulu and we just see them shaking their heads in disbelief
can you imagine though the entire bridge crew must be SO SICK OF IT
like uhura spends so much time rolling her eyes she’s afraid they’ll
stay like that permanently and the number of times sulu has had to cover
a snort with a coughing fit and how scotty won’t stay on the bridge any
longer than necessary and chekov just plain LAUGHS
and meanwhile our intrepid heroes remain completely oblivious to the
amusement of their longsuffering crewmates and jim probably thinks he
still commands solemn respect and spock would fairly die of
mortification if he knew and bones would grump off to sickbay and wield
his hypos threateningly at anyone who came near
(Did I crash the BBS just now trying to post that URL…?)
Or like that episode of CSI where there’s a murder that almost doesn’t get solved but for some sketchy piece of evidence and great lighting.
Or the episode of Gilligan’s Island where it starts with Gilligan running through the jungle shouting “Skipper! Skipper!”?
