TOS Spock pulling clothes from dresser

Which episode of TOS was this gif of Spock pulling clothes out of a dresser drawer taken from? I saw it on a Facebook comment and it's driving me crazy that I don't remember ever seeing this scene.

    Can you find a link to an actual GIF? It's not necessary to display it directly but some will definitely enjoy viewing it. Thanks!

The episode in question is Star Trek: The Original Series S01E12, "The Conscience of the King".

From Wikipedia:

"The Conscience of the King" is the 13th episode of the first season of the American science-fiction television series Star Trek. Written by Barry Trivers and directed by Gerd Oswald, it was first aired on December 8, 1966.

The episode takes its title from the concluding lines of Act II of Hamlet: "The play's the thing/Wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king."

In the episode, Captain Kirk crosses paths with an actor suspected of having been a mass-murdering dictator 20 years earlier.

From the Star Trek Prop, Costume & Auction Authority:

In the 1st season episode "The Conscience of the King" (first airdate: Dec. 8, 1966), some wide angle views capture the overall layout of the room that features a distinct sleeping area, an office area and a dresser/grooming area. The Quarters are being searched by Kirk and Spock who are trying to locate a phaser on overload that has been hidden in the room
