    GUINAN: Not all the Q are alike. Some are almost respectable.

    Picard: Ready and willing, able to serve. What would you do? Would you start as an ordinary crewman? Hmmm? What task is to…menial for an entity?

    Picard: Not at all, that’s the last thing I would do. You by definition are a part of our charter. Our mission is to seek out new and different life forms and you certainly qualify as one of the most unique I’ve ever encountered. To learn about you is frankly provocative, but you are next of kin to chaos.

    (Worf goes to stand guard outside.)

    Q: After our last encounter, I was asked to leave the Q Continuum. Since then, I've been wandering vaguely, bored really, my existence without purpose. Then I remembered all the good times I had with you.

    Riker: “Good times?” The first time we met you put us on trial for the crimes of humanity.

    Q: A big mistake that you did not accept my offer. More and more I realise that here, here is where I want to be. Think of the advantages. Now, I neither expect nor require any special treatment. And if necessary, although I can't imagine why, I will renounce my powers and become as weak and incompetent as all of you.

    Q: No? Oh, Captain, in fairness, let me try, I deserve at least that much.

    Q: I add a little excitement, a little spice to your lives, and all you do is complain. Where's your adventurous spirit, your imagination. Think, Picard, think. Think of the possibilities.

    Q: Oh. Well, you may not trust me, but you do need me. You're not prepared for what awaits you.

    Picard: How can we be prepared for that which we do not know? But I do know we are ready to encounter it.
