Was that an actually quote from Enterprise when Archer said "I'm doing the breast I can."? Or was that a blooper?
Sadly, it was a quote.

Archer was fatigued and keeping vigil on his sick dog in sickbay and is dealing with emotions concerning T'Pol and his "sexual tension"... or something. And he has a Freudian slip over best/breast. He has another than doesn't come to mind right now but it's just as bad if not worse.
From the Agony Booth recap:

But, what's this? Archer visibly softens here, and actually says "sorry" to T'Pol, and it almost sounds genuine! But lest you think this is the big breakthrough scene where the captain learns some humility, the dialogue is about to disabuse you of that notion.

Again, I really can't say for sure that this is the worst line in Star Trek history. But surely, it comes very close.

Archer: Sorry, I'm a little on edge. I haven't slept very much, but I'm doing the breast I... the best I can.

Yep, that about does it for this series. RIP, Enterprise. When all you have left is juvenile gags about the science officer's tits, you've reached the end of the road.

But T'Pol, as in 90% of her scenes, shows no reaction whatsoever. Phlox wanders past with a big "hmmmmm". Yeah, did you notice that subtle Freudian slip there, professor? I know it was hard to catch. But hang on, folks, because things are about to get way worse.

Showing that the Kreetassans aren't the only ones being anal retentive freaks, T'Pol says she's divided their "reconciliation demands" into "specific categories". Archer gripes, "My only concern right now is Porthos!" Which pretty much proves what she said earlier about his fucked up priorities, but I doubt anyone needs further convincing on this point, right?

Archer once again softens his tone.

Archer: When you get back to the bridge, why don't you send me your lips... Lisp! List!
It would almost be funny, if it weren't so sad.
