Hoshi: "Sorry Captain, but I owe it to these kids."
Archer: "I could order you."
Hoshi: I'm on leave from Starfleet, remember?
You'd have to forcibly recall me, which would require a reprimand...
...which would disqualify me from serving on an active vessel.
Archer: "I need someone with your ear."
Hoshi: ...and you'll have her...in three weeks!
Klaang: "Bak do kachai, Qapla!"
Hoshi: (looks at dinky audio device that Archer's holding up)
"Oooh... what's that?"
Archer: "Klingon. Ambassador Soval gave us a sampling of their linguistic database."
Hoshi: "I thought you said the Vulcans were opposed to this."
Archer: "They are. But we agreed to make a few... compromises."
HOSHI: "Let me hear that again?"
(*Re-listens to Klingon language samples*)
Archer: "Not much. An empire of warriors, with 80 polyguttural dialects constructed on an adaptive syntax."
Hoshi: "Turn it up."

Somewhere in there should be...
"What do we know about these Klingons?"
^ I think apenpaap's line was a reply to that.
Archer: Think about it. You'd be the first human to talk to these people. Do you really want someone else to do it?
Hoshi reaction close-up.
Cut to a space shot. Barely visable within space dock, drydock, whatever... is our hero ship.
We're on the bridge now and the turbolift opens, with Archer and Tucker exiting. Crossing in front of some railing which borders the Situation Room, heading towards the door on the left and the Captain's Ready Room.
Trip: "Since when do we need Vulcan Science Officers?"
Archer: "Since we needed their starcharts to get to Qo'noS."
Trip: "So we get a few maps... and they get to put a spy on our ship?"
Archer: "Admiral Forrest says we should think of her more as a chaperone."
Tucker: I thought the whole point of this was to get away from the Vulcans.
Archer: "Four days there, four days back... then she's gone. In the meantime, we're to extend her every courtesy."
