    Voyager featured many lines that required a double-take. "There's coffee in that nebula" is a classic one which inspired the subtitle of this forum. "It's pon farr night at the Vulcan nightclub" is from the episode "In the Flesh," and is possibly one of the biggest come-on lines ever. What are some of your favorite one-liners from Voyager?

    Hair is one of my specialties, despite evidence to the contrary. (The EMH)

    KIM: I keep telling you, we've got to reinforce the hull with kellinite. That's all there is to it.
    TUVOK: Proposing the same flawed strategy over and over again will not make it more effective, Ensign.

    Tim Russ (Tuvok) is hilarious in real life, so I have to wonder if he came up with some of these lines himself. Here's another from him as he explains how to deal with Tom Paris:
    "I wait until his own illogic overwhelms him."

    CHAKOTAY: It's not every day we go looking for the Borg. What's up?
    JANEWAY: Seven needs a new cortical node.
    TUVOK: Captain, need I remind you the Borg often return to salvage damaged cubes.
    JANEWAY: It's a risk I'm willing to take.
    CHAKOTAY: I want to help Seven as much as anyone, but if we're not careful we'll all end up with cortical nodes.

    Was this before or after the entire senior staff were assimilated and presumably left with cortical nodes?:lol:

    Tuvok has great lines.

    TUVOK: it appears we have lost our sex appeal.

    He sure does... which brings me back to my favorite exchange from Sate of Flux:

    CHAKOTAY: Can I ask you to be honest with me, Lieutenant?
    TUVOK: As a Vulcan, I am at all times honest, Commander.
    CHAKOTAY: That's not exactly true. You lied to me when you passed yourself off as a Maquis to get on my crew.
    TUVOK: I was honest to my own convictions within the defined parameters of my mission.
    CHAKOTAY: You damned Vulcans and your defined parameters. That's easy for you.
    TUVOK: On the contrary. The demands on a Vulcan's character are extraordinarily difficult. Do not mistake composure for ease. How may I be honest with you today?
    CHAKOTAY: I'd just like to know, from someone else who pulled the wool over my eyes, was I particularly naive? Was I not paying enough attention? What the hell was it that let all you spies get by me?
    TUVOK: Like all humans, you depend on feelings and instincts to guide you, and they invariably let you down. But particularly naive? No, Commander, and I've always considered your attention span to be adequate.
    CHAKOTAY: Did you ever see anything about Seska that make you suspicious?
    TUVOK: No. She quite expertly pulled the wool over my eyes as well.
    CHAKOTAY: Well, that makes me feel a little better. Thanks.
    TUVOK: Curious.
    CHAKOTAY: What?
    TUVOK: That my failure, added to your own, should improve your feelings.
    CHAKOTAY: Misery loves company, Tuvok.

    From Time and Again, the EMH after finding out the captain is missing, "It seems I've found myself on the voyage of the damned".

    From Live Fast and Prosper

    <Mobar, upon meeting the man he impersonates>
    MOBAR: Logic would indicate that neither of us has the advantage.
    TUVOK: Your logic is flawed.
    <blinds him with flashlight and shoots him>

    Attempts at out-Tuvoking Tuvok are doomed from the start!

    From message in a bottle:

    <EMH2 telling EMH about his heroic exploits>
    EMH to EMH2: The end. You know, you really should keep a personal log. Why bore others needlessly?

    Not particularly funny in itself- until you realise who is saying it.

    There were so many great one liners in Message in a Bottle.

    "She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts."

    Oops, that's Han Solo. Could've been Tom Paris, though.
