ARCHER: I'm listening.
Phlox: Sim won't survive the transplant.
ARCHER: You told me you could remove the tissue without harming him.
Phlox: That assessment was based on Simbiots grown from Lyssarian DNA. My tests on Sim show that human based simbiots are not as resilient. If I excise the quantity of neural tissue to save Commander Tucker, Sim will die. I'm sorry Captain.
SIM: Why not give up my life? I've only got five, six days left anyway.
Archer: That isn't how we see it.
SIM: Let me ask you something, Doc. When you researched Lyssarrian larvae did you come across any references to the Velandran Circe?
Phlox: They were a group of Lysarrian scientists who conducted illegal experiments on symbionts. They claimed to have developed an enzyme that stopped the rapid aging process.
ARCHER: Is there any truth to it?
SIM: Why do you think he kept it a secret?
Sim: Why do you think he kept it a secret?
PHLOX: The enzyme is experimental, with very little empirical evidence to suggest that it works. That's why I didn't mention it.
SIM: There's not much evidence, but it exists. The fact is, I may not have to grow old and die in a week. There's a chance that I can live out a normal lifespan. I can't change what happened to him but maybe I can change what's going to happen to me.
SIM: Come in.
ARCHER: How long have you been staying here?
Sim: I was on my way to my room last night, but I came here instead.
ARCHER: These are Trip's quarters.
SIM: Which is where I belong. I have his memories, I have his feelings, I have his body. How am I not Trip?
ARCHER: Commander Tucker is lying in Sickbay.
SIM: Then what am I? Just something you grew in a lab? Does that make it easier for you to condemn me to death?
