TUCKER: What if there's a surge?
REED: I've thought of that. These inverters were designed to cut in at the first sign of an overload.
TUCKER: We've got to do this by the book, or we'll end up blowing a bigger hole in ourselves than the bad guys.
REED: I've run a dozen simulations. It's an acceptable risk.
TUCKER: When it comes to modifying ship systems, why don't you let the Chief Engineer decide what's an acceptable risk?
REED: Sir, if we do this by the book those aliens are likely to be back before we're done.
Trip: I want to get this job done as quickly as you do, Lieutenant, but not if it means taking shortcuts that could get our people killed.
REED: Yes, sir.
Archer: Don't you ever rest?
TUCKER: You know, I can't sleep without the warp engines online. If I don't feel those vibrations, something just doesn't seem right.
Archer: Well, I hope you get them fixed soon because you look like hell.
TUCKER: Well, with all due respect, Captain, you shouldn't be talking.
ARCHER: How's it coming?
Trip: It'll be online by the end of the day tomorrow, guaranteed. Could ya check the dilithium alignment for me?
Archer: Sure. Point oh six microns. At least we'll be flying home under our own power.
Trip: Let me know if it drops below .03.
Archer: I tried to get a message to the Vulcan High Command, but it didn't go through. If it had, we'd be expecting a Surak class ship tomorrow, oh so politely offering to help us.
TUCKER: Well, the Vulcans would have loved that. Towing the pride of Starfleet back to base.
Archer: Maybe we should thank our visitors for blowing up the subspace amplifiers. It's holding at .05.
TUCKER: Keep an eye on it.
