I know I don't have to remind you that I've felt the same way for years, and I'm just so happy you're finally comfortable talking about it."
"I have learned that I do not have to sacrifice the scientist I have always been in order to appreciate love," said Spock. "My love for you is like a repeating decimal--it continues.... forever."
Kirk broke into a grin. "Then I'm glad you don't think it's *irrational*!"
