Re: The Single Worst Line of Dialogue in the entire Star Trek Franchis

Remember this scene? From Gambit Pt.1;

RIKER: I've got an open wound in here, it hurts like hell, and I don't want it to get better. I don't want to believe that everything's all right.

TROI: You're angry...

RIKER :You're damn right. And I intend to stay angry -- until I findwhoever's responsible for the Captain's death.

TROI:That's pretty selfish, Wil.(a beat as Riker is
taken aback)Do you think you're the only one in pain?

That you have a monopoly on loss? Well, I've got news for you! We're all hurting... we're all angry. And like it or not, you've got a responsibility to the crew! You can't just indulge your personal desire for revenge!

RIKER That's enough, Counselor.
This dialogue looks kind of like normal. It seems normal.

When you actually watch it, it doesn't come off as normal.

It comes off like a scene from a bad soap opera.
