    Should I be worried that I know what half of those things are?

    Yes, but it's from a scene that was cut from the theatrical release.

    This one gets my vote.

    This. If I want to watch TWOK, I'll watch TWOK.


    I thought that was more funny than bad, I sort of enjoyed it.

    Ah, I see. I was going to ask about this, as I did not remember that line.

    That whole segment was cut - starting with Valeris sliding down the "fire pole" and bouncing against the wobbly cardboard wall with no backing support. That entire scene just seemed really badly done and I can understand why it was cut. Was Nick Meyer out that day and an understudy or a B-roll director in charge of things? It always appeared very out of place to me.

    GEORDI (big smile)I know what you're thinking!! Shift
    down and then blow hard into warp nine, yes? Come back fighting.... whoooey!

    RIKER: Can we do it, Geordi?

    GEORDI: Ask me after it's done, sir. (To the engineers)
    I want a slow reverse-power drop-off over five minutes...

    We'll show them what this baby can do, sir!

    RIKER: Give me everything you've got Laforge!!.

    GEORDI AAAye, aye, sir!!!!

    It was supposed to be a motivating scene, but that sounded so dorky.

    And yet I miss the way they talked :lol:

    Come to think of it, that dialogue was pornagraphic :lol:

    Of all the words they choose to use, they always chose the strangest words to say something.

    Not the worst line, per se, but I was always bugged by this exchange from The Paradise Syndrome:

    Chief: We do not know what you wish to be called
    Kirk: Ki...(thinking)...Kir...
    Chief: Kirok?

    That is no more believable than if, say, Spock had been in Kirk's place:

    Chief: We do not know what you wish to be called
    Spock: Sp...(thinking)...Spo...
    Chief: Spock?

    I'd repressed that, it was so bad.

    ^^^ Yes and sounding almost haughty and arrogant. Somewhat out of character for Spock - unless he's sniping at McCoy, of course...

    Early TNG is goldmine of this stuff.

    Peak Performance- Data was playing some strategy game against some snooty obnoxious alien, and lost, so later Dr. Pulaski told Data to 'bust him up'.

    That term, in that century--just sounded odd. "bust him up", oh brother....

    And then in the same episode;

    Quark and Nog spoke normally, what was with this? :lol:

    Well the guy was dumb enough to engage in an act of war in an oversized freighter over an 80 year old relic. Clearly his actions speak almost as loudly as his voice to how stupid he is.

    It's a tossup for me.

    "So you're astronauts? On some kind of....star trek?" *cringe*

    "Lock and load." *cringe and vomit*

    "Commander! This is a mechanism."

    McCoy's comment to Decker completely ruined the moment he was having with the Ilia probe. Why did he feel the need to remind Decker (again) that the probe wasn't the woman Decker had fallen in love with?

    He likely wanted to warn Decker that he was probably about to have sex with the universe's most perfectly constructed blow-up doll... :evil:

    But why? Kirk spent the majority of the five-year mission screwing anything and everything he could his hands on. What did it matter if it helped Decker relate to the probe better?

    (I'm only joking, of course.)

    In an early TNG episode, Picard discussing the US & French flags. That line was so damn cheesy. Can't not cringe.
