quickly scored 14 points to win, 43-32.

got 'em all tonight.

although sammy davis jr. was trying to kiss her on the lips but it was on his bad side...

and kirk kissed a lot of women: blue ones, green ones, ones with antennae or those whose forheads look like a snow tire track...

btw, what was kirk's first middle initial, and later, his middle name?

We watched that episode today. In fact, as soon as I read what you wrote about the grave marker saying "James R Kirk," James immediately knew the episode.
