There are two files you can use to control this for the next boot; if either
file exists, it will be removed after the next boot so the change only
applies to the next boot.
If a file named /fastboot exists, fsck will not be run on the next boot;
useful when you're going to give a presentation.
If a file named /forcefsck exists, the file system will be checked at the
next boot, resetting the 30-mount count.
To create one of these files, you will need root permission: run
$ sudo touch /fastboot
$ sudo touch /forcefsck
to create an appropriately-named empty file.
