WORF: You increased the difficulty level, sir.
Picard: Mr. Worf, it's going to be far more difficult where we're going.
BEVERLY: Which is where exactly?
Picard: I'm sorry I can't tell you that yet.
WORF: It would be helpful to know something about our mission.
Picard: Mr. Worf, I have my orders, I'm sure you understand that. And Doctor, the deflector wasn't set properly. It must be positioned so the emitter blocks the entire passage way or it's useless.
BEVERLY: Sorry. I was concentrating on getting away from the last Cardassian. Or maybe it was the falling rocks.
Picard: I understand this is difficult. All I can do is ask you to trust me.
BEVERLY: All right, let's do it again.
PICARD: All right, Mister Worf. I want you to time the Doctor and me through that first tunnel. And this time we're going to pick up those five seconds.

RIKER: Welcome aboard, sir. I'm Commander...
Jellico: ...William T. Riker, class of '57, graduated 8th in his class, I've been looking forward to serving with you Commander.
RIKER: Thank you. And I you.
Jellico: I'm sure this change in command has taken everyone a little by surprise.
Riker: Well...uh...yes, sir.
Jellico: It caught me by surprise too. I must admit, I miss the Cairo already. But a Galaxy class ship, that's something special. I can understand why you turned down a ship of your own to remain aboard.
RIKER: Yes, sir.
Jellico: How many duty watches does the crew stand?
RIKER: We've a standard three shift rotation.
Jellico: I'd like to change that to four starting tonight. I'd also like to examine the duty roster and the crew evaluations as soon as possible. I want readiness reports from each department head by fourteen hundred hours, and a meeting of the senior staff at fifteen hundred. Do you prefer Will or William?
