Data: Her environment, sir?
PICARD: He believes the Daystrom annex on Galor Four would be more suitable.
Data: Then he wishes to relocate us?
PICARD: Not you, Data. Just her.
DATA: I would not be in favor of that, sir. There are many things that she can learn only from me. My lifetime of experiences, the mistakes I have made and what I have learned from them.
Worf [OC]: Captain, Commander Riker's shuttle has just returned.
PICARD: Acknowledged, Lieutenant. Will you advise Commander Riker I will meet with him in one hour. Picard out. The Admiral is taking the position that Lal's development should be overseen by the most experienced personnel.
DATA: Then he is questioning my ability as a parent.
PICARD: In a manner of speaking.
Data: Does the Admiral have children?
PICARD: Yes, I believe he does, Data. Why?
Data: I am forced to wonder how much experience he had as a parent when his first child was born.

GUINAN: You see?
LAL: What are they doing?
GUINAN: It's called flirting.
LAL: They seem to be communicating telepathically.
Guinan: They're both thinking the same thing, if that's what you mean.
LAL: Guinan, is the joining of hands a symbolic act for humans?
Guinan: It shows affection. Humans like to touch each other. They start with the hands, and go from there.
LAL: He's biting that female!
