Don't get him wrong now, he likes Jim, he does. However, it's when he has several tests the next morning to prepare for and Jim still drags him from his dorm anyway that makes McCoy want to strangle the farm boy. And these weren't just any tests, they were midterms and he had to do better than good, he had to excel because that's just how McCoy was - overachiever. You had to be at Starfleet Academy.

"Damn it, Jim, I'm pretty sure we're supposed to wait until after we learned we've past our tests tomorrow that we go out drinking." Someone had to be the voice of reason here, Kirk sure as hell wouldn't be. "We should applying our time to something more useful like, oh I dunno, studying? You especially. You've got more to lose should you fail than I do." And lecturing with continue, even as they enter the bar in search of vacant seats at the counter.
