But he wasn't particularly enthusiastic about it, either. Here's the dialog: RIKER: Now, will you help me? LANEL: If you make love to me. RIKER: What? LANEL: I've always wanted to make love with an alien. RIKER: Listen, Miss LANEL: Lanel. RIKER: Lanel, I really have to get going. All the other aliens are waiting for me. LANEL: Oh, it's not so much to ask, and then I'll help you escape. RIKER: It's not that easy. There are differences in the way that my people make love. LANEL: I can't wait to learn. (she takes of her spectacles) RIKER: But it's LANEL: It's your only way out of here, my alien. Also, when he tells her 'next time I'm in the system I'll call you' on her question if they'll ever meet again, it's clear from his facial expression he's just deflecting giving a real answer.
