"You are wondering who we are. Why we have done this. Time has come that I stand before you, the image of a being from so long ago. Life evolved at my planet before all others in this part of the galaxy. We left our world, explored the stars and found none like ourselves. Our civilization thrived for ages, but what is the life of one race compared to the vast stretches of cosmic time. We knew that one day we would be gone, that nothing of us would survive. So, we left you."

"You know, I've never been to a formal inquiry."
"Well, I'll see if I can arrange one for you. All you have to do is disobey orders, violate medical ethics and cause an interstellar incident."
"Well, I guess that would do it."
Guinan and Beverly in ST:TNG "Suspicions"

"I don't want you to get involved in this."
"Is that an order, doctor ?"
"Yes."
"Too bad you are not my boss anymore."
Beverly and Alyssa Ogawa in ST:TNG "Suspicions"

"Thank you, doctor, this looks like a great racket, but .. I don't play tennis. Never have."

"Lieutenant, I am curious about something. If you met a double of yourself, would you have difficulty interacting with him ?"
"I think so."
"Why ?"

"I was trying to feed Spot."
"Data's cat!"
"I told him I'll feed him while he's gone. Was putting down the bowl of food, the next thing I know is hissing ball of fur coming at my face. I hate cats."
"I love cats."
Riker and Beverly in ST:TNG "Timescape"

"Captain, I think this is gonna work, but .. it's gonna take some time."
"Well, Mister LaForge. It seem that time is something we have plenty of."
Geordi and Picard in ST:TNG "Timescape"

"Captain, I believe I found the cause of the power surge. There is a warp core breach in progress."
Data to Picard in ST:TNG "Timescape"

"Come in." (Riker looks around from the doorstep) "Where's that cat of yours?"
"Spot is sleeping, sir. Why do you ask?"
"No reason."
Data and Riker in ST:TNG "Timescape"

"I have been testing the aphorism 'A watched pot never boils.' I boiled the same amount of water in this kettle 62 times. In some cases I have ignored the kettle, in others I have watched it intently. In every instance the water reached its boiling point in precisely 51.7 seconds. It appears I am not capable of perceiving time any differently than my internal chronometer."
"Why don't you turn it off ?"
"Sir ?"
"Data, people do not have internal chronometers. Why don't you see what happens if you turn yours off ?"
"Thank you, sir. I will try that."
"Just don't be late for your shift."

"We do not assimilate inferior biological organisms -- we destroy them."
Crosis of Borg in ST:TNG "Descent"

"It .. would be unethical to take pleasure in another being's death."
"You didn't answer my question. Did it feel good to kill?"
".. Yes."

"Why are you here, Commander Riker? Hasn't the crew of the Enterprise caused enough damage already?"
Hugh in ST:TNG "Descent, Part II"

"Hehe, you decided to go swimming, hehe, and when you jumped out of the boat you sank straight to the bottom."
"I did not have enough bouyancy to get back to the surface."
"You had to walk over a kilometer along the bottom to get back to shore."
"One kilometer fourty-six meters."
"It took almost two weeks to get the water out of your servos."
"I am ready to irradiate your existing brain cells."

"Worf, they're going to be here any minute."
"I am having problems !"
"If I didn't know you better, I would say you are procrastinating."
"Klingons do not procrastinate. It is a .. tactical delay."
Riker and Worf in ST:TNG "Liaisons"

"They look like dresses." (Starfleet dress uniforms)
"That is incredible outmoded and sexist attitude. I'm suprised at you. .. Besides, you look good in a dress."
Worf and Riker in ST:TNG "Liaisons"

"Dessert, what is this ?"
"Oh, It's something we eat after the main course. It's usually very sweet, it's usually very bad for you and we eat it purely for pleasure. If you ask me, it's the best part of any meal."
"My people eat only for nourishment."

"How is your diplomatic assignment progressing ?"
"Fine."
"I have heard that in moments of diplomatic tension it is often helpful to find elements of commonality."
"Mister Byleth is demanding, temperamental and rude."
"You share all of those qualities in abundance. Perhaps you should build on your similarities."
Data and Worf in ST:TNG "Liaisons"

"This transmitter module has been totally destroyed. How could've that happened. Looks though it has been hit by a phaser blast.
"I used a phaser to cut it free. Maybe I accidentally damaged it."
Picard and Anna in ST:TNG "Liaisons"

Riker: "You look a little sore." (to Worf)
Byleth: "Lieutenant Worf was kind enough to engage me in eleven hours of holodeck battle exercises."
Riker: "Eleven hours !"
Byleth: "Yes, I learned a great deal about the concept of antagonism."
Worf: "It was .. excruciating."

"You are supposed to verify its authenticity. Then I am supposed to kill you. Then I take your place."
"Will, you always seem to be after my job."
Picard (as Gaylen) to Riker in ST:TNG "Gambit, Part II"

"He's all right. He's only stunned."
"I must admit, I am experiencing a similar sensation."
Troi (about Riker) and Data in ST:TNG "Gambit, Part II"

Picard: "Number one, will you set course for starbase 227. I'll join you on the bridge shortly."
Riker: "Wait a minute. You've been declared dead. You can't give orders around here."
Data: "If we are to adhere to the exact letter of Starfleet regulations, then, technically, sir, you have been declared a renegade. In fact, I believe you are facing 12 counts of court-martial offences. You cannot give orders either, sir."
Picard: "That's quite right, and as I'm supposed to be dead, I'll go and get some sleep and, Mister Data, I suggest that you escort Commander Riker to the brig."
Data: "Aye, sir. (Picard leaves) .. This way, sir."
Riker: "Data, he was joking. You know that, right ? .. Data ?"

"Something wrong, sir ?"
"I just got a message from Starfleet command."
"Bad news ?"
"You could say that. I have been invited to the annual Starfleet Admirals' Banquet."
"My condolences."
"I managed to avoid it in the past six years, but now it seems my luck has run out."
Riker and Picard in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"Strange is not a sufficient adjective to describe the experience."
Data (about his nightmare) in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"It appears Ensign Tyler still has a crush on you. It is clear you did not speak to her."
Data to Geordi in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"Data, you must be the first person who has come to my office and been excited of the prospect of a new neurosis."
Troi to Data in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"It is not music."
"Worf, it's better than music. It's jazz."

"May I ask a personal favor ?"
"Yes."
"Will you take care of Spot for me ?"
"Your animal ?"
"I am afraid if I have another waking dream, I might injure him."
"Of course. Spot, come here."
"Unlike a canine, Spot does not respond to verbal commands."
Data and Worf in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"He will need to be fed once a day. He prefers feline supplement number 25."
"I understand."
"And he will require water, and you must provide him with a sand box. And you must talk to him. Tell him he is a pretty cat .. and a good cat."
"I will feed him."
"Perhaps that will be enough."
Data and Worf (about Spot) in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"How long before we have warp power again ?"
"Well, we have got to manufacture a new conduit, that's at least six hours' work."
"Six hours! The banquet will be completely over by then. That's very unfortunate."
"I could try and speed up things a bit."
"No, NO, no. I wouldn't want to sacrifice the safety of the ship."
"Understood, sir."
Picard and Geordi in ST:TNG "Phantasms"

"Data! Sometimes a cake is just a cake."

"There is a way out of every box, solution to every puzzle. It's just the matter of finding it."
Picard in ST:TNG "Attached"

"So am I."
"What ?"
"I'm thirsty too."
"I didn't say anything about being thirsty."
"I heard you. You said 'I'm very thirsty'."
"I was thinking about it, but I didn't say anything."
Beverly and Picard in ST:TNG "Attached"

"You're right. We can't react on every random thought that crosses the other person's mind."
Picard to Beverly in ST:TNG "Attached"

"This way."
"You don't really know, do you ?"
"What ?"
"I mean, you are acting like you know exactly which way to go, but you are only guessing. Do you do this all the time ?"
"No, but there .. are times when it is necessary for a captain to give the appearance of confidence."

"Why is Spot under the bed ?"
"Probably because she knows if I catch her, I'm gonna kill her."
"Has Spot been misbehaving ?"
"So far, she's broken a vase, a teapot, she's ruined one of my chairs using it as a scratchpost and she has gotten hair-balls all over my carpet."
"These incidents are common to cat-owners. When you borrowed Spot, you said you wanted to experience the full range of feline behavior before getting a cat yourself."
Data and Geordi in ST:TNG "Force of Nature"

"Unfortunately, I have been less than successful." (at training Spot)
"I've got an idea. How about a phaser ? A low stun-setting at just the right moment might do the trick."
"Geordi, I can not stun my cat."
"I was kidding, Data."
Data and Geordi in ST:TNG "Force of Nature"

"What did she train her cat to do ?"
"She had that cat jumping on her arm on command."
"Interesting. Perhaps I can modify your sister's techniques to keep Spot from jumping on the console. Do you know how she was able to train her cat ?"
"Well, as I recall, she walked around for two months with a piece of tuna in her blouse."

"Spot. Spot. Spot. Down. Spot. Down. Down. (sigh) Spot. Down. This is down, down is good. This is up. Up is no."
Data in ST:TNG "Force of Nature"

"Don't tell me you are trying to teach the cat to use the console ?"
"It is part of her training program. I am teaching Spot to jump down from the desk on my command."
"How is it going ?"
"I have .. not been .. entirely successful."
Geordi and Data in ST:TNG "Force of Nature"

"Captain, we may be able to get out of here without using the warp engines."
"How, Geordi ?"

"I wanted to make you female, but your father insisted on a son. Oh, we argued about it endlessly. Right up until we were ready to assemble you."
"How did you decide ?"
"Noonian walked in with your head in his hand."
Doctor Juliana Tainer and Data in ST:TNG "Inheritance"

"Deanna Troi ? Is that who you are going to visit ?"
"Yes."
"Your father would be so pleased."
"Pleased ?"
"Well, he was worried that the sexuality program he designed for you wouldn't work."
"You misunderstand. Counselor Troi is a therapist--"
"Good night. .."
Doctor Tainer and Data in ST:TNG "Inheritance"

"Are you certain you are not saying this because you are my mother ? I have noticed, that parents tend to exaggerate when it comes to their children's accomplishments."
Data to Doctor Tainer in ST:TNG "Inheritance"

Geordi: "Basically, she's a Soong-type android except everything about her is designed to fool you into thinking she's human."
Beverly:"She has tear ducts .. sweat glands .. even veins and capillaries underneath her skin."
Riker: "Why does the scanner read her as human?"
Beverly:"Because she has a feedback processor designed to send out a false biosignal."
Geordi: "Part of her aging program. Not only does she age in appearance like Data, her vital signs change, too."

"How old are you ?"
"I'm .. old enough."
Picard and Worf in ST:TNG "Parallels"

"So, that would make me your .." (becoming a 'godmother' for Alexander)
"The closest analogy is .. step-sister."
"That would make my mother your step-mother."
"I had not considered that! .. It is a risk I'm willing to take."
