COREY: I'm glad you're here. Hand me that magnaspanner.
PICARD: Corey, I'm not here to help you. I'm here to stop you from making a serious mistake.
COREY: You sound like my mother.
PICARD: Cheating the Nausicaans could have serious consequences for all of us. It's a risk we can't afford to take.
COREY: You are my mother. Well gee, Mom, I guess I'll have to go tell those Nausicaans I don't mind if they cheat me.
Picard: This is not a joke, Corey.
COREY: It better be. Now, I'm going to finish my work here. If you want to help me, fine. If not, I'll see you back at the Starbase.
Picard: I said you're not doing this.
COREY: Are you going to hit me, Johnny?
Picard: No. But I'll tell the gambling foreman someone's been tampering with his dom-jot table.
COREY: All right. Have it your way, Ensign Picard.
[Starbase - Marta's quarters]
Picard: I just couldn't make him understand.
Marta: At least he did finally give it up.
PICARD: Yes, but he didn't take it very well.
MARTA: Oh, you know Corey. He'll forget all about it by tomorrow.
PICARD: I hope you're right, because he and I were friends for years after this. I mean, I hope we will be. You know, you keep smiling at me.
MARTA: Well, I've just never seen you like this before. You're so serious.
PICARD: Do I really seem that different?
Marta: Maybe I'm just not used to seeing you in your officer's uniform. No, it's more than that. You do seem different. Well, I'm not complaining or anything. I think it suits you.
