RIKER: I'm going back to the 19th century to get the Captain. Doctor?
CRUSHER: My analysis of the phasers suggests you'd be able to open the rift, but it won't be stable enough to transport more than one person.
Riker: You mean if I go back, only one of us can return?
Crusher: That's right.
CLEMENS: Then I have the perfect solution for you. I'm the one who should return to the 19th century and remain there so your Captain can return here.
RIKER: There's a risk. We're not sure how stable the rift will be.
Clemens: There's risk in everything. The point is, it's the right choice. I've got more books to write, and your Captain has a job to do here.
RIKER: Geordi, you'll brief him on what he needs to know?
LAFORGE: Aye, sir.
CLEMENS: I'm glad I have the chance to thank you.
Data: For what, Sir?
CLEMENS: Why for starting me out on the greatest adventure a man's ever had. And for helping a bitter old man to open his eyes and see that the future turned out pretty well after all.
Back in the 19th Century
Guinan: I'm thirsty.
PICARD: I'm going to get help. We have to get you out of here.
Guinan: No, don't go. They'll be back for you soon.
Picard: No, you need help.
CLEMENS: This thing put me down in the middle of Market Street. Took forever to get here.
as a Bay Area man, that is a problem that has not been solved in the 21st Century.
Back on the Enterprise...
Worf: Commander La Forge has completed the reconfiguration of the Photon Torpedoes.
RIKER: If Clemens got back, the Captain should have been here by now.
