ELINE: And you're just out of bed.
(she hands him a plate of soup)
Picard: It's delicious.
Eline: You always say that.
Pucard: Would you try to answer some questions for me, no matter how strange they may seem to you?
ELINE: Of course.
PICARD: Are there other planets in this star system? Do you visit any other systems...? All right. Is there any kind of communication system here? How do you send messages to...to other communities? Other places?
Eline: The usual way, by voice-transit conductor. Do you want to send a message?
Picard: Yes. When can that be arranged?
Eline: Tomorrow. Don't you want to ask about us?
PICARD: Of course. Anything you can tell me will be helpful. We're, er, um, married?
Eline: Three years ago. The happiest day of my life was the day we got married.
Picard: And what do I do here in Ressik?
ELINE: You're the best iron weaver in the community. At least I think so. You prefer playing the flute, of course.
Picard: The flute?
(she retrieves and hands him a small metal flute decorated with a tassel)
Picard: And when did I learn to play it?
ELINE: I'm afraid you never did, dear, but you keep trying.
(he gives it a trial blow with poor results)
PICARD: I see what you mean. Well, thank you for the soup. Thank you for your help. Tomorrow, will you help me send a message?
ELINE: Of course. Will you come to bed?
PICARD: Oh, I'll sleep here.
