Continuity mistake: When Spock, wearing rocket boots, is in the turboshaft carrying Kirk and McCoy on either arm, he fires the booster rockets, thus propelling the three of them up the turboshaft. If you watch carefully, the deck numbers in the background as they rise upwards go as follows: 35, 52, 64, back to 52, 77, 78, and then 78 again! Not content with one goof, Kirk and McCoy can quite clearly be seen with their feet dangling in mid air, not on Spock's boots. They aren't exactly clinging to him either, more like leaning against him. Surely Kirk and McCoy would be unable to hold onto him!
Uhura: Bad news gentlemen, shore leave has been cancelled.
Chekov: Rescued at last!
Uhura: Return to pre arranged coordinates for pick up.
Chekov: Don't tell them you're lost, you'll never live it down!
Uhura: Is there a problem, gentlemen?
Sulu: Uh, yes, uh... We've been, uh, we've been caught in a blizzard!
Chekov: [Blowing into the communicator.] And we can't see a thing! Request you direct us to the coordinates!
Uhura: My visual says sunny skies and 70°!
Chekov: Sulu look! The sun has come out! It's a miracle!
Uhura: Don't worry fellas! Your secret's safe with me. I'll send a shuttlecraft to pick you up.
Sulu: Uhura, I owe you one. Sulu out.
