    DATA [OC]: I find Lieutenant Worf to be what is called a kindred spirit. We were both orphans rescued by Starfleet officers. In many ways, we are both still outsiders in human society.
    DATA: Are you here to find a wedding gift?

    Worf: Of course. I have attended human weddings before. (The screen shows different items available then a set of crystal wine glasses.) Hold.

    Worf: Yes, my adoptive parents often give these...things at family weddings. A human custom. (Worf continues looking at the display and now the image of a glass swan is shown.) Hold.

    DATA: It is my understanding that the item selected should reflect the personality of whoever is giving it. This does not remind me of you. Have you ever been an actual participant in a human wedding?

    Worf: An honor, perhaps. But human bonding rituals often involve a great deal of talking, dancing, and crying.

    Data: I am rarely in need of Doctor Beverly Crusher's professional services as my biomechanical maintenance program is self-sufficient. But I often observe as she practices medicine on others and have learned a great deal about the human interaction from her.
    Doctor, may I ask a favor of you?
