    DATA: I have the same safeguards as the ship's computer. Therefore, I must report any inquiry regarding restricted information to the Captain. Your reaction suggests you do not wish the Captain to be informed of your inquiry.

    T’Pel: I was not interested in the information. I was curious as to your security safeguards. They appear to be adequate. Cancel request. You may leave. (Data leaves)

    [In Corridor] DATA [OC]: Commander Maddox, I have often wished for the sense that humans call intuition or instinct. Since Vulcans are incapable of lying, I must accept the Ambassador's explanation as the truth, but I would still prefer a gut feeling to back up this conclusion.

    (Data steps up to Holodeck doors and presses a button.
    Computer: Program Crusher Four in progress.
    Data enters the Holodeck.)
    Crusher: Hi Data. Well what do you think? It is a recreation of the studio I had my first dance lesson in.

    Crusher: Let's start with something real simple. (She taps out a step.) Stomp…hop. Try it. (Data repeats the step) Again. Good. Good!

    Crusher: Okay. (She taps a few steps and after her watching her run through it once begins to copy her.) That’s great. Watch. (She adds more steps. Data copies them.) Good. Triples. (She taps a triple step and Data copies her.) Watch. (She adds more steps and Data copies her.) Stop, Data. And you say you're never done this before? Try this. (She starts showing him more tap steps which he sorta follows. They dance around the room ending up in a striding step. She stops, but when he doesn’t…) Stop, Data. Not bad. Yeah, not bad.

    Crusher: Well yes. They don't do a lot of tap dancing at weddings.
