I just love this scene because it’s the only time we see them interact as student and teacher, and the only time we get even a glimpse of what’s ‘normal’ for them, before Nero destroys all normalcy. And I always wonder what the night before or that morning were like which is incredibly sad to think about - did Amanda send Spock some little note saying something incredibly mundane, like she forgot to tell him about this funny thing that happened the other day, or does he think he and Nyota will be able to come to Vulcan over their next break because Sarek’s schedule changed and they can’t make it to Earth next month like they thought? Did Spock and Nyota have a quick dinner of take out the night before since they both had a lot of work she had to go to the long range sensor lab, and he had to prep the Kobayashi Maru but no worries, because they had some other night to spend more time together (or perhaps more likely he was preparing for the hearing against Kirk)? Or did they have breakfast that morning while he went over Kirk’s subroutine and she reviewed for a quiz and they ate something really boring and healthy like plain yogurt and she left some of her textbooks at his place since she’d be back there that night and would finish that paper while he makes them dinner? And then they get back something like 84 hours later and her Intermediate Stellar Cartography text is sitting on his table where she left it, and their bowls are sitting in the dish drainer (cause Spock is the kind of guy who does dishes immediately) and they’re out of yogurt and how can this possibly be the same room, the same place they left?
On a different note, in the second one, he is totally smiling, which I didn’t ever notice before and just just. too. cute. But maybe, also, that’s the last time he smiles in a really, really long time.
