It does involve Beverly Crusher, and it is part of the TNG 20th Anniversary releases. Chronologically it happens after The Buried Age but before The Child (TNG Second Season Episode)

To keep this thread from dying forever: if someone guesses right, please try to post your own quote within a day.

If nobody posts their own quote within 2 or 3 days, anyone can jump in and take over.
