Picard: Yes. Absolutely. That’s why we’re out here.
Q: Oh, the arrogance. They don't have a clue as to what's out here.
Guinan: They will learn. Adapt. That is there greatest advantage.
Q: They're moving faster than expected, further than they should.
Picard: By whose calculations?
Q: You judge yourselves against the pitiful adversaries you have encountered so far. The Romulans, the Klingons. They are nothing compared to what's waiting. Picard, you are about to move into areas of the galaxy containing wonders more incredible than you can possibly imagine, and terrors to freeze your soul. I offer myself as guide only to be rejected out of hand.
Riker: We’ll just have to do the best we can without you.
Q: What justifies that smugness?
Picard: Not smugness. Not arrogance. We are resolute, we are determined and your help is not required.
Q: We'll just have to see how ready you are.
Q snaps his fingers and the Enterprise is hurled7,000 light years away.
PICARD: Bridge, this is the Captain. All stop.
Wesley: (over comm) Answering all stop, Sir.
Wesley (I over the com): Answering all stop, sir.
Data: According to these coordinates we have traveled 7,000 light years are located near the system J-25.
