The friendship escalated a bit.

The end of Search for Spock but they mess up the fal-tor-pan and McCoy and Spock’s minds wind up in each others’ bodies, SNW "Spock Amok" hijinks-style.
They don't want to worry anyone further, so the entirety of The Voyage Home is exactly the same, except Bones and Spock are in each other's bodies and desperately trying not to let anyone know:
Gillian: Do you like Italian?
Bones in Spock's body: shit, does Spock like Italian? No. Yes. No.
Jim: I love Italian and so do you.
Bones: Of course. I forgot because I died.
Spock in Bones' body: please don't ask the doctor to run my station Him? I mean him, back at his post, like nothing happened. I don't know if you've got the whole picture but he isn't exactly working on all thrusters.
Bones, sitting at Spock's station: this was such a bad plan, Spock. What's something that fucker would say uh...a joke is a story with a humourous climax.
Jim: Bones, you stay here.
Spock in Bones' body: No way, ...somebody's gotta keep an eye on him! to make sure he doesn't do something massively illogical with my body
Bones, watching Jim sell the glasses Bones gave him: Excuse me, weren't those a birthday present from Doctor McCoy? asshole
Jim: it's ok he won't know
Scotty: I've travelled millions of miles
Spock: I must correct him; it bothers me too much Thousands.
Bones: I have to swear so badly but I can't. How would Spock swear? How would... They are not the hell your whales. close enough
Jim: You're acting a lot more formal and stiff than you used to.
Bones, who is overcompensating by trying to act as Vulcan as possible: I cannot tell a lie.
Spock: you took my body swimming WHERE
Bones: I had to ask the whales for their consent ok
The slingshot through time on the way back home throws them back into their own bodies, because that makes as much sense as anything else. They never tell anyone what happened.
Bones: What's this?
Kirk: It's my to-do list.
Bones: Oh? That's great. I'm so glad that you're starting to be more organized.
Bones: This just says "Spock".
Au where literally everything is the same, but vulcans have tails 😌😌
“Spock, are you… mad at me?”
“Negative, Captain. Vulcans do not ‘get mad’.”
[ID: An illustration of Kirk and Spock from Star Trek, they are facing each other. Spock appears upset, standing in a parade rest as his brow furrows. Kirk has his hand reaching up to rest along Spock’s jaw and neck, stroking a thumb across his cheek. Kirk looks stern, looking at Spock intently as he leans in close and brushes their lips together. /end ID]

(Process livestreamed on Twitch at "almalvo" - link pinned on my Tumblr)
Spock: Dr. McCoy, I think you should play the role of my father.
Bones: I don't wanna be your father.
Spock: That is perfect. You already know your lines.
“I am not, the hell, a man. Nor am I from the so-called sunshine state” florida man stated in an exclusive interview.

[ID: An illustration of Kirk and Spock from Star Trek. Kirk is leaning in and kissing Spock’s cheek while Spock leans away and is looking annoyed. There is dialogue above them: Kirk says, “I’m sorry for cheating on our chess match, Spock.” “It is unforgivable,” said by Spock. Kirk says, “Worse than the Kobayashi Maru?” Spock says, “Yes.” /end ID]
