I liked what he said about escaping from Kronos with a busted warp drive. "It's like robbing a bank in a getaway car with a flat tire."

I love how the constant metaphors were starting to annoy Kirk.

LOL it's something Shanter's Kirk would've allowed to continue, But I like how Pine's Kirk just told Bones to shut up with the metaphors.

It wasn't a metaphor, but his comment about delivering Gorn octuplets was pretty funny too.

Was it Bones or Scotty who said that jumping from ship to ship would be like jumping out of a moving car into a shot glass?

Scotty, and Kirk then shrugs that off saying he's done that before.

It was when he was opening the torpedo with Carol Marcus. He said something like, "I once performed an emergency delivery on Gorn octuplets and those little bastards bite."

Metaphors aside, I think my favorite Bones line in the movie was when he said to Sulu, "Remind me never to piss you off."

I assumed it was in reference to the video game. Can anyone confirm or deny?

He was talking about the first film's skydive scene but it comes off as if he is talking about his drinking habits or that he's literally done it before.

The Gorn comment was hilarious. Then I noticed I was the only one near me that was laughing because I knew what a Gorn was. I'm so lame.

A coworker actually complained about the Gorn comment stating "They haven't went on the 5 year mission yet so they haven't encountered the gorn yet!"

I was like ....

Lol @ Bones, but the metaphors are an essential expository device in the Star Trek franchise, so I don't see Bones giving those up anytime soon.

Yea.. in this universe they have encountered Gorn before the 5 year mission. Also Kirk and Spock and the crew encounter Gorn in the movie tie in game which I believe is canon. By the way avoid that game like a plague as it sucks really bad.
