Paris: Checking. We seem to be tethered to some kind of large plant.
JANEWAY: Let's see it. Computer, I need a wider angle.
(They are an ornament on a Christmas tree.)
Q: [on viewscreen] You can't hide from me, Q.
Quinn: And you can't take me by force. I'll stalemate you for eternity if I have to!
JANEWAY: The hell you will. The vaunted Q Continuum. Self-anointed guardians of the universe. How dare you come aboard this ship and endanger this crew with your personal tug of war.
Q: (on viewscreen) Did anyone ever tell you you're angry when you're beautiful?
Q vanishes from the viewscreen and reappears sitting on the edge of the main viewer, which becomes an image of a starfield.
PARIS: We're back where we started from, Captain.
QUINN: It's doesn't matter. I'm not going into that cell.
Q: How would you like to spend eternity as a Gorokian midwife toad.
Quinn: Just try it!
Quinn is about to gesture, but Janeway stops him.
JANEWAY: Stop! You want asylum? Fine. We'll have a hearing.
Q: A hearing? You would have me put his future in your delicate little hands? Oh, so touchably soft. What is your secret, dear?
JANEWAY: (Pulls her hand free. ) When the captain of a Starfleet vessel receives an official request for asylum, there is a clear procedure to follow. I suggest to end your deadlock, and to save my ship, that we follow it to the letter.
Q: Well, this could go on for a millennium or two. All right, I accept on behalf of the continuum on one condition: if you rule in our favor, Q agrees to return to his confinement.
QUINN: I have a condition of my own. If you rule in my favour, then the Continuum must grant me mortality.
Q: Why? So you can kill yourself?
Q: Accepted. Well, this is going to be an amusing diversion. Will you send him to prison for eternity or will you assist his suicide plan? That's a toughie, but that's why they made you captain, isn't it? To handle the real tough ones? My, my. I guess now we get to find out if the pants really fit.
(Quinn zaps in as Tuvok is reading a PADD.)
QUINN: Am I interrupting anything?
TUVOK: I am curious. Have the Q always had an absence of manners, or is it the result of some natural evolutionary process that comes with omnipotence?
