    GUINAN: Don't be so sure. I just mean, if you don't go on this mission... [Guinan sprinkles an additive into the drink she's been mixing; the balance of the drink is thrown off and it instantly evaporates]... We'll never meet.

    (in a sight reminiscent of City on the Edge of Forever, Data has built a Contraption)

    (Jack London staggers in with an anvil)

    London: Sorry it took so long, Mister Data.

    DATA: Apology is not necessary.

    [Data effortlessly picks up the anvil with one hand and in reaction to surprise from London feigns over-exertion in his arm and drops the anvil back down, grabbing his arm in "pain.")

    DATA: Ow.

    DATA: I require a low intensity magnetic field core. I believe the iron mass of the anvil will provide that.

    London: If I were to guess, maybe a new kind of motor for one of those horseless carriages.
