GUINAN: And so you stayed for that?
PICARD: I didn't want anything to happen to you. You're far too important to me.
GUINAN: You know an awful lot about me.
PICARD: Believe me, in the future the tables will be turned.
Guinan: So we become friends?
Picard: It goes far beyond friendship.
GUINAN: Oh, but I'll have to wait almost five hundred years, and when we meet I won't be able to tell you about this, will I?
PICARD: No. Because for me, none of this will have happened yet.
Guinan: What's that?
Picard: That's history fufilling itself.
Gore-ac, may I ask a favor? Would you please change your avatar? That one really turns my stomach.
GUINAN: History has to fulfill itself. Even Picard knew that.
RIKER: You were there in the cavern. You know what happened. What am I supposed to do?
Guinan: If I told you what happened in that cavern, it would affect any decision you'd make now. I can't do that. I won't.
RIKER: Not telling me might affect my decision. Did you think of that? We're talking about Jean-Luc Picard. I can't sit around and hope it all works out. I've got to do something.
CLEMENS: Any place that doesn't stock a good cigar doesn't rank high in my book.
TROI: If you must have one, I'm sure we can replicate it for you.
CLEMENS: You think one of these imitations can take the place of a hand wrapped Havana?
TROI: I wouldn't know.
CLEMENS: Well, that's the problem I see here. All this technology it only serves to take away life's simple pleasures. You don't even let a man open the door for a lady.
TROI: I think what we've gained far outweighs anything that might have been lost.
