Removing Spock’s Brain

“I saw an old episode of Star Trek a few days ago.  It was a little weird.  So, Spock’s brain was taken out,  and so Bones was having to put it back in.”

“Yeah.  That was the third season, and at that point the show became kind of stupid.”  (My brother’s Trekie past put a few useless trivial facts and opinions in my head after all.)

Actually, come to think of it, this would be a “Jump the Shark” Moment.  Spock’s Brain predating Happy Days’s Fonzie Jumping of a Shark, I think the phrase should be replaced to “Removing Spock’s Brain”, but there are probably countless pre-Star Trek examples which would trump that one.
