In 2286, when Spock was writing a time entry program, he said to James T. Kirk that he had to base the variables off his memory. Upon hearing this, McCoy said, with his eyes to heaven, "Angels and ministers of grace, defend us." Spock identified this quote as one said in William Shakespeare's play Hamlet, thus confirming his memory was sound. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
