It was supposed to be a motivating scene, but that sounded so dorky.

Come to think of it, that dialogue was pornagraphic

Of all the words they choose to use, they always chose the strangest words to say something.

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

Not the worst line, per se, but I was always bugged by this exchange from The Paradise Syndrome:

Chief: We do not know what you wish to be called
Kirk: Ki...(thinking)...Kir...
Chief: Kirok?

That is no more believable than if, say, Spock had been in Kirk's place:

Chief: We do not know what you wish to be called
Spock: Sp...(thinking)...Spo...
Chief: Spock?

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

I wince every time at this one, from TOS: Errand of Mercy (overall, a pretty good episode):

SPOCK: Inhabited by humanoids. A very peaceful, friendly people living on a primitive level. Little of intrinsic value. Approximately Class D minus on Richter's scale of cultures.
Richter's scale?!? D minus!?!

^^^ Yes and sounding almost haughty and arrogant. Somewhat out of character for Spock - unless he's sniping at McCoy, of course...

Early TNG is goldmine of this stuff.

Peak Performance- Data was playing some strategy game against some snooty obnoxious alien, and lost, so later Dr. Pulaski told Data to 'bust him up'.

Data: In the present context, what did she (Dr. Pulaski) mean by, "Bust him up?"

TROI Doctor Pulaski, in her own way, is instructing you to take the shortest route to victory.
That term, in that century--just sounded odd. "bust him up", oh brother....

And then in the same episode;

BRACTOR: I am BRACTOR, leader of the Ferengi attack vessel Kreechta!!!!.

I shall have the secret of the other Federation ship. If you surrender it to me, I will allow your Enterprise to leave unharmed.

You have ten of your minutes.
Quark and Nog spoke normally, what was with this?

Well the guy was dumb enough to engage in an act of war in an oversized freighter over an 80 year old relic. Clearly his actions speak almost as loudly as his voice to how stupid he is.

It's a tossup for me.

"Commander! This is a mechanism."

McCoy's comment to Decker completely ruined the moment he was having with the Ilia probe. Why did he feel the need to remind Decker (again) that the probe wasn't the woman Decker had fallen in love with?

He likely wanted to warn Decker that he was probably about to have sex with the universe's most perfectly constructed blow-up doll...

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

But why? Kirk spent the majority of the five-year mission screwing anything and everything he could his hands on. What did it matter if it helped Decker relate to the probe better?

(I'm only joking, of course.)

In an early TNG episode, Picard discussing the US & French flags. That line was so damn cheesy. Can't not cringe.
