ROMULAN 1: It's everything we could have hoped for.
Spock: More than we could have hoped for.
PARDEK: But if Neral is ready to publicly endorse reunification.
Picard: It's hard to believe that he could rise to the rank of Senate Proconsul without the support of the Romulan Traditionalists.
PARDEK: That may be true.
Picard: Then how can he turn his back on them so easily? How can he endorse reunification when it's considered subversive?
ROMULAN 1: Because he's not afraid of them. He knows that we'll support him.
SPOCK: Captain Picard is correct. It is not logical for the Proconsul to support reunification at this time.
Romulan Woman: Why would Neral lie?
PICARD: Perhaps because he's hoping to expose members of your movement.
Romulan Woman: No, this is our chance for acceptance. Finally to be heard.
ROMULAN: I believe it's the Federation that fears an alliance between Romulus and Vulcan.
Picard: That is not true!
SPOCK: I came here to determine the potential for reunification. In spite of what has occurred, I intend to continue with my efforts. I intend to meet with the Proconsul as planned.
Picard and Spock leave and head into another area of the caves.
Picard: You let their emotion sway you.
SPOCK: On the contrary, I am pursuing the most logical course.
Picard: You're as skeptical as I am, is it logical to ignore your own good sense?
SPOCK: I fear the influence of Sarek has coloured your attitudes, Captain, toward reunification and perhaps toward me.
PICARD: That is the second time you have accused me of speaking with another man's voice. It's true he will always be a part of me. His experiences, his spirit. But I speak with my own voice, not his.
Spock: Curious, that I should hear him so clearly, now that he is dead. It is possible that I have brought my argument with Sarek to you, Captain. If so, I apologize.
