    For better or for worse(preferably the latter), what are some one liners you remember?

    I've got one to start-
    "You shouldn't go fishing today... You won't catch anything."
    -Thomas Riker

    The clinic located by the Q Continuum
    Geordi (Season 1, possibly "The Arsenal of Freedom"): "We've got a bogey at " (some number)
    Riker (season 2): "Have we nailed down our little hiccup yet?"

    And the real winner is:
    Riker (season 1, again, not surprising it it?): "a blind man teaching an android how to paint? That'll make a couple pages in someone's history book"



    (in full context, woot woot)

    (After the alien shapeshifter is captured)
    Doctor McCoy: I'm glad to see him under guard, Jim. If he'd turned into a second Spock, it would have been too much to take.

    Mr. Spock: Perhaps, but then two Dr. McCoys just MIGHT bring the level of medical efficiency on this ship up to acceptable levels
    Spock's best clapback ever

    I'll go with the one that made me turn off H&I's rerun of VOY last night: "There's coffee in that nebula."

    I imagine it’s in the eye of the beholder. They’re memorable lines, up to the individual reader whether they are good, bad or cheesy.

    I don’t believe it was said in the way many like to claim.

    I'm partial to the schwarzenegger one-liners-

    "Time's...UP!"
    -Janeway

    "Worf, Destroy that thing"
    -Picard

    Or the obligatory
    "This is gonna take some...time...to explain."
    -spoken at the end of every time travel episode.

    "Go ahead, make my day." Wait a minute, wrong franchise. Let's try this again.

    "He's dead, Jim."

    Check out TNG and the beginning of 'Booby Trap', Geordi on a date, awkward perhaps?

    "Another coco-no-no?"

    Leave it to Janeway:

    "Chronowerx stock is about to crash"

    "Time to take out the garbage."

    "We have to find a way to out-think the Think Tank."
