GUINAN: But if the Earth is not alone, and there are millions of inhabited planets in the heavens...
CLEMENS: Quite my point. Man becomes a trivial creation, does he not? Lost in the vastness of the cosmic prairie, adrift on the deep ocean of time. A single one among countless others.
GUINAN: Someone may argue that a diamond is still a diamond, even if it is one amongst millions. It still shines as brightly.
Clemens: Someone might say that, dear lady, if someone thought that the human race was akin to a precious jewel. But this increasingly hypothetical someone would not be me.
[In the entrance hall of the home, Data enters and is stopped by a doorman]
DOORMAN: Good afternoon, sir.
Data: Good afternoon. I would like to speak to Guinan.
DOORMAN: And you are?
[The doorman looks over the guest list, not finding Data's name.]
DOORMAN: .... Mister Data.... Could it be under another name?
Doorman: I can't seem to find your name on the guest list, sir.
Data: I am a personal friend.
DOORMAN: Madam Guinan has discovered many personal friends since the newspaper announcement, but if your name is not on the guest list, there's nothing I can do.
DATA: It is urgent that I speak to her.
DOORMAN: Sir, unless you leave this house immediately, I will send for the police.
DATA: That is an excellent idea. I will wait for them in there. (Data does a neat side shuffle and gets through)
DOORMAN: Sir, please, you can't go in there.
DATA: Guinan! Excuse me. I must speak to you immediately.
DOORMAN: Forgive me, madam. He just barged right in.
DATA: I am sorry for the disruption, but he would not believe me when I told him we were friends.
