MARTA: Yes. It's very attractive. Johnny. Haven't you ever thought about us getting together?
Picard: Yes, I have, actually. I've thought about it for a long time.
MARTA: Why didn't you ever say so?

PICARD: And we're still friends.
Q: So what's next?
PICARD: I don't know. What I do know is, things will be different.
Q: I'm sure.
