SOLOK: Why, yes, he is an extraordinary man.
Crusher: (damsel in distress voice) That's why we came here, because only Solok could help us. I guess there's some things that even Solok can't do. It's too bad.
Crusher starts to stroke Solok's lobe
Crusher: Because, if he could, I would be very, very...
SOLOK: (quivering with excitement) When do you want to leave?
PICARD: Beverly, make sure that your tricorder is keeping a precise map of the route. We could very easily get lost in here.
CRUSHER: Right. I'm picking up some subspace signals, but I can't seem to get a lock on them.
PICARD: That's typical of theta-band emissions. You have to compress the detection band width in order to determine the fix. The source emission is five hundred metres east of here. And seven hundred meters below. (something flies overhead) It's all right. They're called lynars, a kind of Celtrine bat. They're harmless.
CRUSHER: You're not afraid of bats, are you, Worf?
Worf: Of course not.
Enterprise is nose-to-nose with a Cardassian warship
First Officer's log, supplemental. We have rendezvoused with the Cardassian ship Reklar to begin diplomatic talks designed to ease tensions along the border.
RIKER: Gul Lemec has arrived. He's waiting for you in the Observation Lounge.
Jellico: Very good. I'll be in my Ready room. (A moment later in the ready room, the wall of which is now decorated with pictures from his son, the door chimes) Yes?
TROI: Captain, I think there's been a slight miscommunication. Did you want to meet with Gul Lemec in here?
Jellico: No, the observation lounge is appropriate.
TROI: I see.
JELLICO: Lemec is a Cardassian, and Cardassians are like timber wolves, predators, bold in large numbers, cautious by themselves, and with an instinctive need to establish a dominant position in any social gathering.
TROI: So you're trying to establish a dominant position by making him wait for you. The trouble with wolves is that sometimes, in the fight for dominance, one of them ends up dead.
JELLICO: In that case, the trick is to be the wolf that's still standing at the end.
CRUSHER: The floor is over five hundred meters down from here.
