    MERIBOR: Analyzing soil samples. There isn't any anaerobic bacteria. The soil is dead. This isn't just a very long drought, is it, Father? I have entries in my log that go back ten years. You have data preceding that for fifteen years. You've reached the same conclusion, I know you have.

    Picard: I haven't reached any conclusion. A good scientist doesn't function by conjecture.

    MERIBOR: A good scientist functions by hypothesizing and then proving or disproving that hypothesis. That's what I did.

    Picard: No, I'm not. I'm just hypothesising that he's in love with you.

    MERIBOR: You've taught me to pursue the truth, no matter how painful it is. It's too late to back off now. This planet is dying.

    PICARD: No, I don't. It just saddens me to see you burdened with the knowledge things you can't change.
