    Which episode did this famous meme, the Picard facepalm, come from?

    And how about the double facepalm?

    The facepalm appears in "Deja Q" and the double facepalm is from "A matter of perspective", two consecutive third season episodes.

    I believe the 'double facepalm' is actually a bit of Photoshop magic.

    And a double facepalm, maybe from The Offspring?

    Yeah, I think so too. Riker's is from when the prosecution's recreation of events isn't making him look good, I think Picard's is the Deja Q one overlayed on the observing Picard that's originally in the shot.

    Worf too. It's a real Trek staple. :)

    Indeed. Here's the original image, as seen in the episode.

    Just caught that on Netflix last night, coincidentally. Nice 24th century law and order episode.

    Facepalm? No.

    ...it's just a way of hiding your eyes while you check if your fly is unzipped.
