Data: I suggest we postpone our greetings for another occasion.
PICARD: Agreed. Get us out of here.
LAFORGE: If we tune a phaser to the approximate frequency of triolic waves and lay down a field burst, it might respond.
(the phaser shot turns the cane head into a writhing snake's head)
TROI: The ophidian the aliens were carrying.
(it sends off energy charges before reverting to the cane)
Riker: What the?
LAFORGE: These look like minute distortions in the space-time continuum; like the one we saw on Devidia 2.
Riker: They were so small, and they lasted only a second.
DATA: The aliens appear to be able to concentrate the distortion and direct it to a specific time and place.
CRUSHER: Maybe they have something, a mechanism that focuses it.
LAFORGE: Any device like that would produce significant levels of triolic waves. Like the ones in the cavern where Data's head was found.
DATA: I have located that cavern.
(knocking on the door and frantic activity)
CARMICHAEL [OC]: Mister Pikerd! I know you're in there. Open the door!
TROI: Mrs. Carmichael.
DATA: How now, spirit. Whither wander you?
CRUSHER: [reading from a play book] Over hill, over dale, thorough bush, thorough brier...
[Picard lets Ms. Carmichael in.]
TROI: Mrs. Carmichael, thank goodness you're here.
PICARD: We need someone to read a part. You're just in time.
CARMICHAEL: Mister Picard, I need to be talking to you.
Crusher: My mistress would that he be gone.
RIKER: Ill met by moonlight, proud Titania.
