The Fires of Lorn (Link)

McCoy, upon first being assigned to the Enterprise, is standoffish, and Kirk tries to get him to warm up. In the end, he accomplishes this by saving from being burned alive--rather a literal warming up!

Kirk was puzzled.

Since the new Senior Medical Officer, Dr. McCoy, had come on board the Enterprise, he had been trying to develop some sort of relationship with him - in vain. McCoy, it seemed, did not want any sort of Human relationship; even Spock had noticed it. But then, neither did he want a Vulcan one, Spock had tried speaking to him, and had been rudely rebuffed.
