Re: Worst lines of dialogue in the entire series?

But the worst line that really makes me hate what I'm watching?

"Believe me, it is better to be dead than to live alone in the body of a woman."
Still don't get all the hate for this episode and Janice's sentiments in that. Janice is batshit crazy, and she sees herself and her career as an utter failure. Rather than accepting responsibility for that, she blames it on some sort of inherent bias against women in Starfleet. She's looking for an excuse. I don't take it as a factual statement about 23rd century attitudes concerning women. I take it as her attempting to rationalize her situation using whatever excuse she can find.
