All You Need is Love (Or, I need help for my friend's wedding)
 
In June, two of my friends are getting married. No, I'm not trying to break them up by subliminally suggesting things through Trek episodes; yes, we're happy for them. They both have an affinity for TV & movies, possibly moreso than they do for each other. Odd, but not my relationship. I've been recruited to help create a TV/Movie montage to help show their undying love for movies and TV, uh, I mean themselves. The montage has different clips of characters talking about love, relationships, and all that shippy stuff. They've specifically asked for Star Trek clips to be included with one caveat, they don't want any Troi/Riker clips.

Yeah, I know.

The bride is named after Deanna, and apparently she thought ahead and has banned the use of these clips. So much for paying homage to your namesake. But I have learned that if you keep the couple happy on their wedding day, you can keep the friendship after. So, given this condition, I'd figure I would ask for some help: what are some of the best/cutest/touching/awkward/beautiful moments or lines in Star Trek regarding love?

I know asking for a touching romantic moment in Trek is like asking for [Barack Obama/Sarah Palin] to [produce a birth certificate/make a coherent statement], it is not the franchises strength (Please choose whichever combination will garner a response). But there has to be something in the 40 year history, even if it is just playing "City on the Edge of Forever" on repeat. Any ideas?

Um... there are a few Picard/Crusher moments that come to mind, if you want to use them I can elaborate more...

Sure, share'em.

I should add, and maybe I could've made it clearer in my first post, but even though I've framed this using the wedding feel free to share any moment. It could lead to an interesting discussion regardless of I get anything usable. One that we've had before, sure, but hey why not (after 10 years, I've repeated a lot of conversations here). :p

Ok let me think...

There is the ready room scene in AGT where they kiss. It may be a reality that never occured but a nice romantic scene none the less.

There is the scene in sickbay in AGT where Picard holds Beverly by the shoulders and says something to the effect of having to put up with him for many years to come.

There is the steamy look in The Big Goodbye when they first see each other in their Dixon Hill era wardrobe.

The scene where Beverly comes back from her warp bubble in Remember Me they share a hug in engineering.

The scene in Allegience where they dance and kiss. (Although this is Picard's double and not really him and it comes to an abrupt end.)

There are more but these are a few that come to mind at the moment. I'll be back with them if you like. Also, Picard has a couple of touching moments with other women, but as you can see it is in direct conflict with my pairing of choice LOL so someone else is going to have to help you with those...

Yeah, I was able to pull that up but also figured people might have some other moments not included in the list.

There are some good moments in the episode where Data is courting a woman on the Enterprise ("In Theory"). Particularly when he goes to different people for advice about women. Worf demonstrates a roar, then says women throw things and men duck :klingon:, Picard says he'd be happy to give advice about women...as soon as he has any, and that rascal Riker tells Data the rewards make a relationship worth pursuing, putting on his big charmer smile and saying, "you'll have to find out for yourself" when Data asks him to be more specific about the rewards. :D

There's also that hilarious moment where the lady is holding Data's arm like a couple while they're talking to people in Ten Forward. She asks him to repeat what he'd told her earlier when he saw her room and he says, "I believe you have an aversion to orderliness." :lol:

Some of my favourite funny, yet insightful romance scenes in Star Trek involve Guinan giving advice. One is when she tries to explain to Lal kissing and holding hands in "The Offspring", and another is when she and Riker are trying to give Wesley advice in the "The Dauphin" as Riker simulates hitting on her to demonstrate how to woo a woman.

Guinan: [To Wesley]: "Shut up, kid."
Guinan: [To Riker]: "Now tell me about my eyes". :guffaw:

I'd say you can't go wrong with that, boss.

A few that spring to mind right now...

Janeway and Chakotay holding hands over the table in Resolutions. :D And/or him giving her the rose at the end of Coda...

Tom and B'Elanna's wedding in Course: Oblivion - very appropriate for a wedding! Ditto Sisko and Kasidy's wedding, or Miles and Keiko's, etc etc...

The EMH and Denara Pel on the Holodeck snuggling in the classic car.
