Up the Long Ladder - What did Danilo say?
 
In TNG's "Up the Long Ladder", during the final Observation Lounge scene where Wilson Granger (the Mariposan prime minister) first meets Danilo O'Dell (the Bringloidi elder), the two wind up bickering.

GRANGER
I'm sorry, Captain. It's out of the question. You're trying to dump your problems on us. We have problems of our own.

PICARD
But, don't you understand? The Bringloidi can help you.

GRANGER
Look at him! How could we ever integrate THAT into our society?

O'DELL
You're no prize, yerself!

GRANGER
Primitive, hostile, disruptive! It would require an enormous effort to even educate them.

O'DELL
Oh, FORGET IT, Captain Picard! I'm not gonna come in here, with my hat in my hand, begging charity from this ________!

PICARD
Now, stop!


Fill in the blank. What was the missing word that Danilo O'Dell said? Are there any transcriptions on TNG episodes anywhere on the web to confirm it?

DANILO (standing) Forget it, Captain Picard. I'm not coming with my hat in my hand to beg charity from this bastard.

It doesn't sound like "bastard". It sounds like "blathiscythe".
