The Vulcan nerve pinch, of course. ProfessorTrek 01:50, July 20, 2011 (UTC)

Actually this seems to be a common theme in time travel episodes, usually they try to bluff their way out of the situation before trying to run away, with varying success.

In "The City on the Edge of Forever" (TOS) Kirk and Spock are caught (stealing clothes) by a policeman. Afterward, it went something like this:

  • Kirk: How can your wife let you go out like that?
  • Spock: Yes, you look very untidy.
  • [Spock reaches up to brush off the policeman's shoulder and gives him a nerve pinch.]

Since Spock did it, it must be the logical thing to do.
