PARDEK: Permit me to withdraw.
NERAL: Will we see you and your wife tomorrow at the state dinner?
PARDEK: We're looking forward to it.
NERAL: It's been years since old Pardek's been invited to an official function. He's far too attached to the common man for most peoples' comfort.
SPOCK: That is their loss. I have found Pardek to have a unique insight into many issues.
NERAL: Let me tell you something, Spock. We're going to start something here, you and I, that will redraw the face of the quadrant.
SPOCK: Are you prepared to support reunification?
NERAL: I believe it must eventually come. Our two worlds need each other.
SPOCK: Forgive me, I did not expect to hear a Romulan Proconsul speak like a member of your underground.
NERAL: I want you to know exactly where I stand.
Spock: And do you believe that you can get the support of the full senate?
SPOCK: And do you believe that you can gain the support of your full Senate?
NERAL: Things are not what they once were in the Senate. The old leaders have lost the respect of the people. Involvement in the Klingon War, endless confrontations with the Federation, they're tired of it. Times are changing, and leaders who refuse to change with them will no longer be leaders. Spock, I am prepared to publicly endorse the opening of talks between our peoples. What do you think the Vulcan people think of that?
SPOCK: They will be cautious. There are generations of distrust to overcome.
NERAL: But surely with a man of your influence leading the way?
WOMAN [OC]: Proconsul, the Senate has been recalled into session.
NERAL: Very well. Can we meet again tomorrow?
SPOCK: As you wish.
NERAL: Good. Jolan tru, Spock. Oh. Live long and prosper.
