    Talking about one liners and COMMANDO in another thread got me thinking... what are some cool one liners the franchise has done?

    Obviously, favorites that pop up will likely be the McCoyisms, and the Vulcan greetings.

    Some of my favorites, in no particular order...

    "Especially the lies." - Garak, "THE WIRE"(Even taking it away from the conversation, his delivery was perfection.)

    "It appears we have lost our sex appeal, Captain." Lt. Tuvok, "ELOGIUM"

    "Captain, I protest! I am NOT a Merry Man!" - Lt. Worf, "Qpid"
    (Almost 30 years later since it first aired and I heard it, I still can't help but laugh uncontrollably.)

    "Haven't you ever seen a Klingon before?" - Captain Sisko, "APOCALYPSE RISING"


    What are your favorite one liners, folks?

    Tuvok (when he is asked how he manages to frustrates an opponent in a debate again and again): I wait until his own illogic overwhelms him.

    A couple of great threats...
    Subtle...
    DATA: "I believe that your handprint will open this door whether you are conscious or not."
    Not so subtle...
    WORF: "I am going to kill him. I will grab him by the throat and rip out his esophagus..."

    Perhaps there needs to be a separate thread for Worfisms

    "At the first sign of betrayal, I will kill him, but I promise to return the body intact." Worf, In Purgatory's Shadow

    “Today is a good day to die.” Many Klingons in many episodes.

    "Curious, how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want." Mr. Spock, "Errand of Mercy"

    “We all have to take a chance. Especially if one is all you get.” Kirk, “Tomorrow is Yesterday.”

    Conversely, I think there will be fewer examples from Garak for the simple reason that he really didn't give a lot of one-liners. His humor tended to be more complex, often part of a discursive tennis match.

    Of course, there are exceptions.

    "Oh, it was just something I overheard while hemming someone's trousers." Garak, Second Skin``

    Maybe not everything. But he did have some gems. Like "A pity. I rather liked him."
