Original Last Name She Used Edit

Did Carol Marcus use the surname Wallace originally in the movie? I thought she used the surname Wallace. If she did, it might have been an in-joke about fans speculating that either Janet Wallace or Carol Marcus were the "blonde lab technician" Kirk nearly married. (Then again, I could have had the wrong surname...) --usscantabrian (talk) 22:09, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

You are correct, she used the name "Wallace", which was her mothers maiden name IIRC. -- Cid Highwind (talk) 22:10, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

So, Cid, did you feel this was kinda a "nod" or "in joke" to the "blonde lab technician" speculation? That's what I took away from it. -- usscantabrian (talk) 22:25, May 9, 2013 (UTC)

Does anyone recall if her mother's first name was mentioned? --Alientraveller (talk) 22:27, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
No, the mother's name was not mentioned. --usscantabrian (talk) 02:39, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
Actually, I was mostly annoyed that the cheap trick of a wrong/fake name being given was not only used once, but twice, in the same movie. ;) The possibility of an in-joke is nice, but would need to be sourced before being added to the article. It definitely flew over my head. Regarding Carols mother, I believe her first name was not mentioned. -- Cid Highwind (talk) 22:30, May 9, 2013 (UTC)
I have to admit, I was like you, a bit peeved about the second fake name. The first one (Carol Marcus) was essential to the plot, so I can forgive that one! --usscantabrian (talk) 02:39, May 10, 2013 (UTC)
