"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Reunion (#4.7)" (1990)
Lieutenant Worf: You have never seen death...?
[Alexander shakes his head]
Lieutenant Worf: Then look - and always remember.

Lieutenant Worf: There is no honor in attacking the weak.

K'Ehleyr: A few minutes ago, you looked like someone with a question to ask.
Lieutenant Worf: Must I ask the question?
K'Ehleyr: Yes. You must.

Lieutenant Worf: You should not have kept *this* from me!
K'Ehleyr: Well... now you know.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [after Worf has refused to meeting K'Ehleyr with regard to his dishonor] Lieutenant, you are a member of this crew, and you will not go into hiding whenever a Klingon vessel uncloaks!
Lieutenant Worf: [agrees] I withdraw my request, sir.

K'Ehleyr: Were you concerned about me?
Lieutenant Worf: As Head of Security, it is my duty to be... concerned.
K'Ehleyr: Is that it? Just "official" concern for my well-being?

Lieutenant Worf: [referring to his dishonor] Respect my wishes in this matter. I cannot take the oath with you. Nor can I claim your son.
K'Ehleyr: If you cannot be his father... at least be his friend.

Lieutenant Worf: I know little of Gowron - only that he is an outsider who has often challenged the Council. But Duras... I know *him*! His heart is *not* Klingon.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mister Worf, we have a conspiracy on our hands that could be a direct threat to the security of the Federation.
Lieutenant Worf: Yes, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: As Chief Security Officer, I want you to accompany me to the next proceeding.
Lieutenant Worf: Captain, they will be incensed. My presence will be disruptive.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Yes. It will.

Alexander Rozhenko: Where are the other Klingons?
Lieutenant Worf: There are no others on board.
Alexander Rozhenko: Why?
Lieutenant Worf: The Federation and the Klingon Empire were enemies for many years. No other Klingons have asked to serve in Starfleet.
Alexander Rozhenko: Why?
Lieutenant Worf: A warrior does not ask so many questions!

Lieutenant Worf: [of Alexander] He knows nothing of our ways!
K'Ehleyr: *Our* ways? You mean Klingon ways, don't you?
Lieutenant Worf: He *is* Klingon!
K'Ehleyr: He is also my son and I am half Human. He will find his own ways. Why the sudden concern? You won't even acknowledge that he's yours.

Duras: I'm the only one, Worf - the only one who can prove your innocence. Kill me and you're a traitor forever.
Lieutenant Worf: Then that is how it shall be!

Lieutenant Worf: [about the bat'leth] Do not think of it as a weapon. Make it part of your hand - part of your arm. Make it part of you.

[Worf has branded Duras a traitor, due to Duras' father's collaboration with the Romulans]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Klingon tradition may hold the son responsible for his father's sin. I cannot. Treason was his father's crime. Duras' crime was to lay that blame on your father. I will not forget that. But you should not forget that you chose to accept the consequences of that lie.
Lieutenant Worf: [agrees] To preserve the Empire.

[Worf has to answer to Picard for his act of vengeance on Duras]
Lieutenant Worf: Sir, I have acted within the boundaries of Klingon law and tradition.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The High Council would seem to agree; they consider the matter closed. I don't. Mister Worf, the Enterprise crew currently includes representatives from thirteen planets. They each have their individual beliefs and values and I respect them all. But they have all chosen to serve Starfleet. If anyone cannot perform his or her duty, because of the demands of their society, they should resign. Do you wish to resign?
Lieutenant Worf: No, sir.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mister Worf - isn't it time for the truth about your father's innocence to be told? After all, you only accepted this dishonor to protect the name of Duras and hold the Empire together. Now that he has died in disgrace, what is gained by further silence?
Lieutenant Worf: Each member of the Klingon High Council has shared in that lie. They will not be so willing to admit their own dishonor. But the day will come when my brother and I will... convince them to speak the truth.

Alexander Rozhenko: Are you my father?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. I am your father.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Birthright: Part 2 (#6.17)" (1993)
L'Kor: Why did you come here Worf? If you had found your father, you would have found... only dishonor.
Lieutenant Worf: If he had been captured, as you were, if I had found him here - I would be glad to see him. There is no room in my heart for shame.
L'Kor: I can only hope that if *my* son came here - he would be Klingon enough to kill me.

Lieutenant Worf: You robbed the Klingons of who they were. You dishonored them.
Tokath: By not slitting their throats when we found them unconscious?
Lieutenant Worf: I do not expect you to understand. You are a Romulan.

Tokath: When I informed the High Command that the Klingons wanted to remain here, I was told that unless I stayed to oversee them myself, they would be killed. My decision ended my military career.
Lieutenant Worf: Why did you do it?
Tokath: I don't expect you to understand. You're a Klingon.

Tokath: Well, Worf - you've had quite an effect on the young people.
Lieutenant Worf: I have done nothing more than show them who they are.
Tokath: No. You have shown them what you want them to be.

[Worf and Toq are on the hunt]
Toq: I can feel my heart pounding!
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. This is the moment where life and death meet. This is what we are - warriors.
Toq: I was never taught that.
Lieutenant Worf: There is much you were never taught.

Tokath: We've put aside the old hatreds. Here, Romulans and Klingons live in peace. I won't allow you to destroy what we have.
Lieutenant Worf: Do not deceive yourself. These people are not happy here. I see the sadness in their eyes.
Tokath: That's not what I see when I look in my wife's eyes. I married a Klingon. So you see, when I warn you not to disrupt our lives here, I'm not speaking just as a jailor; but as a man protecting his family.

Lieutenant Worf: Are you afraid to die while escaping?
L'Kor: We are dead, Worf. We died at Khitomer.

L'Kor: In time, you will grow accustomed to life here.
Lieutenant Worf: Never.

Lieutenant Worf: I would not have thought it possible... to love a Romulan.

Lieutenant Worf: If there were a way, I would take you away with me.
Ba'el: If there is anything that I've learned from you, from your reaction to me, it's that I have no place out there. Other Klingons will not accept me for what I am.
Lieutenant Worf: And if I stay here, these Klingons will not accept me for what I am.

Lieutenant Worf: And what about Toq? I saw what happened to him when he caught the scent of his prey on the wind. For the first time in his life, he felt powerful, and that is what he has been denied living here, and that is what you have tried to take away from him. Now, you may be content to sit here in the jungle and wither to old age. But Toq and the others have tasted what it is to feel truly alive, and they will not give that up now!
Tokath: Enough of this. We could talk all night and not convince each other. I offer you a choice: live with us, as one of us...
Lieutenant Worf: Or?
Tokath: Or I will have you... put to death.
Lieutenant Worf: Then that is what you will have to do.

Tokath: I know that there are those among you who may question what I'm about to do. And you would not be wrong to do so. I have questioned myself; I have spent the night considering my decision, challenging myself to justify whether it *is* right. And I have reached the conclusion that it is absolutely necessary... to put this man to death. What we have built together would be destroyed by this man. And I cannot allow that to happen.
Tokath: [to Worf] I give you one last chance to accept our way of life.
Lieutenant Worf: Those are eloquent words, Tokath. But the truth is, I am being executed because I've brought something dangerous to your young people: knowledge.

[Ba'el tries to help Worf escape, which he refuses]
Ba'el: They will kill you!
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. But they will not defeat me.

Lieutenant Worf: The young people will see what it is to die - as a Klingon.

Lieutenant Worf: [to the young Klingons] Years ago, your parents made a great sacrifice for the sake of their families. Today, they do so again. For that, we must honor them. You must promise them never to reveal their secret. No one must know of this place.

[last lines]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: You found what you were looking for, Mr. Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: No, sir. There was no prison camp. Those young people are survivors of a vessel that crashed in the Carraya system four years ago. No one survived Khitomer.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [truthfully] I understand.

Ba'el: Worf - you never answered my question. Did Kahless ever find his father's sword?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. He found it.
Ba'el: The stories that you tell - are they true?
Lieutenant Worf: I have studied them all of my life and find new truths in them, every time.
Ba'el: This Kahless - did he ever... take a mate?
Lieutenant Worf: That is another story.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Emissary (#2.20)" (1989)
[after being intimate with K'Ehleyr, Worf initiates a formal Klingon oath of marriage]
K'Ehleyr: Wait. You can't mean...
Lieutenant Worf: We are mated.
K'Ehleyr: Yes, I know! I was there!

K'Ehleyr: I will *not* take the oath!
Lieutenant Worf: Then this night had no meaning! And *that* I will not believe.
K'Ehleyr: Believe what you will.

Lieutenant Worf: Talk or play. Not both.

Lieutenant Worf: You are late.
K'Ehleyr: Sorry. Had to make myself beautiful.
Lieutenant Worf: I fail to understand why.
K'Ehleyr: Worf, we're alone now. You don't have to act like a Klingon glacier. I don't bite. Well, that's wrong. I *do* bite.

Lieutenant Worf: Klingons never bluff.

Lieutenant Worf: Welcome to the 24th century.

Lieutenant Worf: I've noted that some people use humor as a shield. They talk much, yet say little.

K'Ehleyr: Damn you, Worf! You'd let me go without saying another word, wouldn't you?
Lieutenant Worf: What needs to be said?
K'Ehleyr: Nothing. Everything.

K'Ehleyr: Tell me one thing. You would have gone through with the oath, wouldn't you? Regardless of the consequences to our careers, to our lives.
Lieutenant Worf: Honor demanded no less.
K'Ehleyr: What do you want? Is honor all you care about? Don't you *feel* anything else?

[in order to accustom a rather suspicious Captain K'Temoc to the 24th century, Worf poses as Captain of the Enterprise]
Lieutenant Worf: Captain, as you are new to this century, I have tried to be patient. But I will tolerate no further insubordination. Drop your shields, immediately!
Capt. K'Temoc: And if I refuse?
Lieutenant Worf: Then die in ignorance. I can waste no more time on you.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Lieutenant, I order you to relax.
Lieutenant Worf: [agitated] I *am* relaxed!

[after Worf has temporarily played "Captain" of the Enterprise]
Commander William T. Riker: How did you like command?
Lieutenant Worf: Comfortable chair.

K'Ehleyr: I hid the truth from you. Last night did have meaning. I was tempted to take the oath with you. It scared me. I've never had such strong feelings toward anyone.
Lieutenant Worf: Nor have I.
K'Ehleyr: Then it *was* more than just a point of honor. Maybe someday, when our paths cross again... I won't be so easy to get rid of.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: K'Ehleyr - I will not be complete without you.

K'Ehleyr: [having dispatched Worf's exercise program] It's not much of a program.
Lieutenant Worf: [gives her a look] Computer... level two.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sons of Mogh (#4.14)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: I am indebted to you.
Odo: Yes, you are. And Mr. Worf - you'll find I'm a man who collects on his debts.

Lt. Commander Worf: He decided to kill me while I was looking him right in the eyes and I never saw it. But Kurn did, and he was three meters away.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Worf, I don't think you can tell someone's going to kill you by looking at them.
Lt. Commander Worf: A Klingon can. It is an instinct - the ability to look someone in the eyes and see the decision to kill. An instinct I no longer have. Kurn was right. I have lived with Humans so long I no longer think like a Klingon.

[after a fighting practice in the holosuite, Worf and Dax discuss the merits of Klingon weapons]
Lt. Commander Worf: I find using a large and intimidating weapon like the bat'leth often leads to overconfidence.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: So you think that I was overconfident?
Lt. Commander Worf: You *were* overconfident. You thought by distracting me with your outfit, you would gain an advantage.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: My outfit?
Lt. Commander Worf: Erm... I thought that... I mean, I only assumed that...
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You thought that I wore this for you? Talk about overconfidence!

Kurn: Soon there will be only one son of Mogh. I came for Mauk-to'Vor.
Lt. Commander Worf: What?
Kurn: Yes, Brother. I want you to kill me.

Lt. Commander Worf: I do not apologize for what I have done. I could not join Gowron in his war with Cardassia or the Federation. It would have been dishonorable.
Kurn: Oh, so, in avoiding dishonor for yourself, you brought it down on the rest of your family. What a noble act. How selfless!

Lt. Commander Worf: For a long time, I have tried to walk the line between the Empire and the Federation. I told myself I could live in either world, that it was *my* choice. But the truth is, I cannot go back to the Empire.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Do you want to go back?
Lt. Commander Worf: I had always hoped that one day, the House of Mogh would reclaim its rightful place and that I would return. But now I know that even if I did... I have no place there.
[he takes off his combadge]
Lt. Commander Worf: *This* is all I have.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Is *that* enough?
Lt. Commander Worf: It will have to be.

Lt. Commander Worf: How do you feel?
Kurn: Like a man who's tired of waking up and seeing a Human doctor's face.

Kurn: You know what... my one regret is, Worf? That we weren't raised together. In the Empire, on Earth, it wouldn't have mattered. But the sons of Mogh should have never been separated.
Lt. Commander Worf: On that, we both agree.

Kurn: I have never understood you, Worf. But I do know this: in your own way... you are an... honorable man.
[he slums on the table]
Lt. Commander Worf: And you will be an honorable man again. But not as my brother.

Lt. Commander Worf: Goodbye, my brother.
Kurn: Good... bye!

[last lines]
Rodek: [formerly Kurn] Who are you?
Lt. Commander Worf: I am Worf.
Rodek: Are you part of my family?
Lt. Commander Worf: I have no family.

Lt. Commander Worf: Kurn, where have you been? It has been four months since your last message.
Kurn: I've been overseeing the end of a once proud house. Perhaps you've heard of it. It was called the House of Mogh.

[Worf tries to persuade Kurn to help uncover a Klingon conspiracy against the Federation, which could backfire on the Klingon Empire]
Lt. Commander Worf: Our people have turned their backs on us, but we have not turned our backs on them. Let it be the sons of Mogh, side by side, saving our people.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [the scene opens with a shot of a bloodied Klingon dagger, before the camera pans to a righteously pissed Sisko] Kurn's going to make it. Julian said he'll be up on his feet by tomorrow morning.
Captain Sisko: Good. Mister Worf, I want you to tell me why I shouldn't put you on the next transport out of here.
Lt. Commander Worf: You are well within your right to do so.
Captain Sisko: I'm not talking about my rights. Answer my question.
Lt. Commander Worf: Captain, I do not have an answer. Sir, I realize my actions were in violation of Starfleet regulations, but...
Captain Sisko: "Regulations"? We're not talking about some obscure technicality, Mister Worf. You tried to commit premeditated murder!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Benjamin, it wasn't murder. Worf and Kurn were performing a Mauk-to'Vor ritual. It's part of Klingon belief that...
Captain Sisko: At the moment, I don't give a damn about Klingon beliefs, rituals, or custom! Now I have given you both a lot of leeway when it comes to following Klingon traditions, but in case you haven't noticed, this is not a Klingon station, and those are not Klingon uniforms you're wearing! There is a limit to how far I'll go to accommodate cultural diversity among my officers, and you've just reached it! When your brother is released from the infirmary, you'd better find another way to settle your family problems. Is that clear?
Lt. Commander Worf: Captain, it may not be possible to...
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: It's clear! There are definitely other possibilities for Kurn. This will never happen again.
Captain Sisko: You're damned right it won't! Now both of you get out!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Sins of the Father (#3.17)" (1990)
[Worf has shown a strong reaction to Kurn's offense]
Kurn: So, your blood is not so thin after all.
Lieutenant Worf: I am a Klingon! If you doubt it, a demonstration can be arranged.
Kurn: That is the response of a Klingon - the response I would expect... from my older brother.

Duras: You are a fool. And your challenge can only result in a fool's death.
Lieutenant Worf: It is a good day to die, Duras. And the day is not yet over.

Kurn: Are your quarters so comfortable?
Lieutenant Worf: They serve me.

[repeated line]
Lieutenant Worf: I am a Klingon!

Lieutenant Worf: So, you asked to serve aboard the Enterprise to watch me.
Kurn: It was an excellent opportunity to see what kind of Klingon you were - or if you were Klingon at all.
Lieutenant Worf: Your deception offends me, Brother.
Kurn: It should. But it was required.
Lieutenant Worf: To satisfy your curiosity.
Kurn: No. Much more. You are the eldest son. The challenge is yours to make.
Lieutenant Worf: [perplexed] Challenge?
Kurn: The Klingon High Council has judged our father a traitor to the Empire.

Lieutenant Worf: The family of a Klingon warrior is responsible for his actions, and he is responsible for theirs. If I fail in my challenge, I will be executed. - Will you grant my leave, Captain?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: No. If I understand correctly, a Starfleet officer, a respected member of my crew, could be accused of a capital crime. Your actions in this matter will reflect on this ship and on the Federation. Therefore, it seems only appropriate that your Captain should be at your side while you make your challenge. I'm sure you would do no less for me.

Kurn: The two sons of Mogh. Together, we'll restore the family honor.
Lieutenant Worf: No. For the proceedings, you will not reveal your true father.
Kurn: I must.
Lieutenant Worf: You will not!
Kurn: Because it would mean my death as well if you fail? A Klingon's honor means more to him than his life. Perhaps your Human values have clouded your judgment. I insist.
Lieutenant Worf: On this ship, you are my Commander, and I obey. In Council chambers, you are *my* cha'DIch. You do not insist. *You* obey.

[Picard informs Worf that he will go into the city's old quarter to look for Kahlest]
Lieutenant Worf: It is too dangerous. You must not go alone.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hey... I'm your cha'DIch.

[Kurn has barely survived an attack from Duras's assassins]
Lieutenant Worf: We should have let him die. Now that Duras knows his bloodlines, we will both be executed.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: You sound like you've already lost, Worf.

K'mpec: [on accepting discommendation] It would be the same as admitting your father's guilt, Worf.
Lieutenant Worf: So be it.
K'mpec: Your heart... is Klingon.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: You must also... Brother.

Lieutenant Worf: [indicating Duras] *This* ha'bIDaH should've been fed to the dogs!

Lieutenant Worf: [to Duras] You... are the son of a traitor!
[he gives him a backhand slap in the face]
Lieutenant Worf: Now I am ready.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Parallels (#7.11)" (1993)
[his shipmates sing a Klingon version of "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" to Worf]
Lieutenant Worf: [irritated] That was not a Klingon song!
Counselor Troi: It wasn't easy to translate. There doesn't seem to be a Klingon word for "jolly".

[Worf asks Troi to become his son's 'SoH-chim']
Lieutenant Worf: You would become his surrogate mother. In case anything ever happened to me, you would be responsible for him.
Counselor Troi: I don't know what to say. It's a great honor. So, um... that would make me your...?
Lieutenant Worf: The closest analogy is... step-sister.
Counselor Troi: [smiles] That would make my mother your step-mother.
Lieutenant Worf: [looks aghast] I had not considered that.
[thinks it over]
Lieutenant Worf: It is a risk I am willing to take.

Lieutenant Worf: Commander... how long have I been married to Counselor Troi?
Lt. Commander Data: Two years, one month, twelve days.
Lieutenant Worf: And when did this relationship begin?
Lt. Commander Data: It is my understanding your romantic affiliation began shortly after you recovered from your spinal injury on stardate 45587. It was six months later that you asked Commander Riker for his formal permission to court Counselor Troi. You felt to do otherwise would be dishonorable.
Lieutenant Worf: And then we mated?
Lt. Commander Data: I am not privy to the exact details of when, where or how your first coupling took place. I could investigate it.
Lieutenant Worf: No, that is all right.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How old are you?
Lieutenant Worf: I am... old enough.

[first lines]
Lieutenant Worf: Personal log, stardate 47391.2 - I am returning from the bat'leth competition on Forcas III. The conditions were difficult. Several contestants were maimed, but... I was triumphant. I won Champion Standing. I am looking forward to resuming my duties aboard the Enterprise. However, I am anticipating a troubling situation.

[in an alternate universe]
Lieutenant Worf: Personal log, stardate 47391.2 - I am returning from the bat'leth competition on Forcas III. The conditions were difficult. Several contenders were maimed. One of the contenders used an illegal T'Gha maneuver on me. The judges chose to ignore it, and I was robbed of my rightful standing. I was awarded... ninth place. I am looking forward to resuming my duties aboard the En...

[in yet another alternate universe]
Lieutenant Worf: Personal log, stardate 47391.2 - There has been a malfunction in the ship's main deflector. It will require two more days of repairs. As a result, I will not be able to compete in the bat'leth tournament on Forcas III. I have asked my brother to take my place. He does not have my prowess with the blade, but...

Commander William T. Riker: Something wrong?
Lieutenant Worf: I know what you are planning, sir. I will not be surprised.
Commander William T. Riker: Surprised? I don't know what you're talking about.
Lieutenant Worf: Of course you don't.

[Worf has been given a painting from Data for his birthday. Shortly after, he appears slightly dizzy]
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Worf, are you all right?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. Yes, I... think Data's painting is making me dizzy.

Alternate Captain William T. Riker #1: You don't remember any of this, do you?
Lieutenant Worf: I do remember. I just remember differently.

[Worf is back in his own reality and quarters]
Counselor Troi: Welcome home, Worf. I hope you don't mind I let myself in. I promised Alexander I'd feed his Dalvin hissing beetle while you were both away.
Lieutenant Worf: So, you do not live here?
Counselor Troi: What's that supposed to mean?
Lieutenant Worf: It is a long story.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: [to replicator] Champagne!


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Change of Heart (#6.16)" (1998)
Worf: I have a sense of humor. On the Enterprise, I was considered to be quite amusing.
Lieutenant Commander Jadzia Dax: That must've been one dull ship.
Worf: That is a joke. I get it. It is not funny, but I get it.

Lt. Commander Worf: Very well. Room service.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Really?
Lt. Commander Worf: Really.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Oh, that was easy.
Lt. Commander Worf: Did you want to fight over it?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: No, it's just, I didn't expect you to surrender so quickly.
Lt. Commander Worf: Surrender?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Bad word.
Lt. Commander Worf: Very bad.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: So, how are you enjoying your honeymoon? Are you suffering enough?
Lt. Commander Worf: Almost.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Is there anything I can get for you?
Lt. Commander Worf: More pain - less cold.

Chief O'Brien: [about tongo] You have absolutely no idea how this game is played, do you?
Lt. Commander Worf: No. But I have developed a new appreciation for it.
Chief O'Brien: Since when?
Lt. Commander Worf: Since I married a tongo player.

[Worf and O'Brien are running a bet - for a bottle of blood wine against a bottle of scotch whiskey respectively - about the outcome of a tongo game between Dax and 206-times-winner Quark, during which Dax seems to come out on top]
Lt. Commander Worf: [cheering, to O'Brien] I like my blood wine very young and very sweet.
Quark: [at the tongo table] Is he a friend of yours?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Just a fan.
Quark: I'm afraid I'm gonna have to disappoint all your fans.
[lays down his cards]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [disbelieving] A full consortium?
Chief O'Brien: [to Worf] 207. A single malt, preferably something from the Highlands.

Lt. Commander Worf: Of course, our tricorders will be useless from now on.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: There you go again - looking for the cloud in the silver lining.
Lt. Commander Worf: I am not complaining. I look forward to walking through the jungle without a map and no idea what lies ahead.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Well, the funny thing is, you probably are.

Lt. Commander Worf: Your problem is, you cannot accept change.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: *I* can't accept change?
Lt. Commander Worf: That is correct.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Oh, you've gotta be kidding! I've changed bodies six times, Worf.
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes, but you are still very set in your ways.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: And look who's talking.
Lt. Commander Worf: Well, I do not have to sleep on the same side of the bed every night, or brush my hair exactly fifty strokes every night, or eat the same thing for breakfast every day, or read the last page of the book before the beginning, or lift up the...
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I get the point! I don't know how you can live with someone so monotonous.
Lt. Commander Worf: It is not easy... *That* was a joke.

Lt. Commander Worf: You were at my wedding. You heard the story of the first two Klingon hearts, and how nothing could stand against them, and how they even destroyed the gods that had created them. I've heard that story since I was a boy; but I never understood it - I mean really understood it. Until I was standing in the jungle, with my heart pounding in my chest. And I found that even I could not stand against my own heart. I had to go back. And it did not matter what Starfleet thought or what the consequences were. She was my wife, and I could not leave her.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I know how much your career means to you.
Lt. Commander Worf: You come first - before career, before duty, before anything. I do not regret what I did; and I would do it again.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I don't know what to say.
Lt. Commander Worf: You could say 'thank you for saving my life'.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Thank you for saving my life.
Lt. Commander Worf: And you could say 'I would do the same for you, Worf'.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Well - I'd have to think about that. My career is very important to me, you know.

[Dax is flying the runabout through an asteroid field]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Want me to slow down?
Lt. Commander Worf: No. Unless you think you should.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Not at all. In fact, it could go faster.
Lt. Commander Worf: By all means.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Oh. A man after my own heart!

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Worf, my love - let me make this very clear: I do not want to spend my honeymoon climbing, hiking, sweating, bleeding or suffering in any way.
Lt. Commander Worf: All right, what do you want?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Room service.
Lt. Commander Worf: Room service?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Room Service. I want to be pampered. I want a staff to cater to our every whim. I want to be embarrassed by the size of our room. I want a balcony, with a view that would make you want to break down and cry from the sheer beauty of it all. And I *don't* want to spend one moment of our honeymoon suffering from anything except guilt about our complete self-indulgence.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Worf... it's been a great two months, hasn't it?
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Fistful of Datas (#6.8)" (1992)
Lieutenant Worf: [on the holodeck] Where are we?
Alexander Rozhenko: Deadwood. 19th century Earth - the Ancient West.
Lieutenant Worf: What is our function here?
Alexander Rozhenko: You are the sheriff, and I am the deputy.

Annie: What'll you have?
Lieutenant Worf: Um... Klingon firewine!

Lieutenant Worf: You have been accused of committing a homicide.
Eli: If you mean murder, then I guess I'm guilty. I've killed 23 men, Sheriff. One more ain't gonna make much of a difference. 'course... shootin' someone as ugly as you couldn't be considered a crime, could it? Was you born that way? Or did your momma marry an armadillo?

Lieutenant Worf: Where have they taken my son? Where is he?
[grabs Eli by his collar]
Eli Hollander: Temper, temper, Sheriff. My pa ain't gonna like it if I come home all bruised.

Lieutenant Worf: [when getting involved in a saloon brawl] I'm beginning to see the appeal of this program!

Counselor Deanna Troi: [playing her role as the mysterious stranger] Durango! I'm called Durango!
Lieutenant Worf: Yes, er - Counselor Durango...

[a lightly dressed woman is posing from a saloon balcony]
Lieutenant Worf: You wrote this holodeck program yourself?
Alexander Rozhenko: Well - Mr. Barclay helped a little.
Lieutenant Worf: I must have a little talk with Mr. Barclay.

Lieutenant Worf: You are a murderer and a thief!
Eli: A man's got to make a living.

[Worf has arrested Eli and put him in jail]
Lieutenant Worf: What are his rights in this century? Is there a, a trial? Or shall I execute him?

Eli: Frankly, I don't think I'll be around here that long. Not after my old man hears about this.
Lieutenant Worf: What "old man" are you referring to?
Eli: My pa. When he breaks me out of this tin can... gravedigger'll be working overtime.

[last lines]
Alexander Rozhenko: Father? After what happened, I guess you'll never want to go back to the Ancient West.
Lieutenant Worf: The town of Deadwood may face danger once again. If they do... they will need a sheriff... and a deputy.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Let He Who Is Without Sin... (#5.7)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: Do not hug me!

Captain Sisko: I can't believe you actually convinced Worf to go to a pleasure planet. He must really be loosening up.
Odo: I hadn't noticed it.
Captain Sisko: Come to think of it, neither have I.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Oh no, he's still the same old Worf.
[Worf enters the replimat and goes to the replicator]
Lt. Commander Worf: Prune juice, extra large!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: See what I mean?

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Worf's upset because I had lunch with Captain Boday.
Odo: The Gallamite?
Lt. Commander Worf: His skull is transparent.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: And if you couldn't see his brains, would it make you feel any better?

Lt. Commander Worf: If you were a Klingon woman we would already be married.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: In case you haven't noticed, I'm not a Klingon woman.
Lt. Commander Worf: That is no excuse!

[repeated line]
Lt. Commander Worf: We have much to discuss.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Not every relationship has to end like a Klingon opera.
Lt. Commander Worf: Oh no... no. Just the ones that are important.

Lt. Commander Worf: If Federation citizens cannot handle a little bad weather, how will they handle a Dominion invasion?

Fullerton: I thought you were one of us?
Lt. Commander Worf: Perhaps I was for a time. But I believe the Federation will survive the Dominion, the Borg... and people like you!

Lt. Commander Worf: You say that we have to return to traditional Federation values. Well, I agree. But one of those values... is trust. It is essential that we remember that.
[turns to leave]
Fullerton: Don't you walk away from me!
[he slaps Worf]
Lt. Commander Worf: [grabs Fullerton by his collar] I will do as I please!
[throws him against the wall]
Lt. Commander Worf: I am on vacation.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [after arriving on the pleasure planet] Aren't you uncomfortable in that uniform?
Lt. Commander Worf: Starfleet uniforms are designed for comfort even in the most extreme environments.

[Worf tells Jadzia how he had once, as a child, caused a fatal accident to a human boy]
Lt. Commander Worf: Compared to Klingons, humans are fragile creatures. I realized at that moment, to live among them I must practice restraint.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: That must have been difficult for you.
Lt. Commander Worf: At first. In time it became a part of who I was, who I am.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Way of the Warrior (#4.1)" (1995)
Doctor Bashir: Care for a game of darts?
Lt. Commander Worf: I do not play games.
Chief O'Brien: It's like poker... with pointed tips!

Martok: You robbed my son of his honor just to get my attention?
Lt. Commander Worf: You cannot take away what someone does not have.

Lt. Commander Worf: Nice hat.
[on Kira's Guinevere costume, during their first encounter]

Lt. Commander Worf: Curzon's name is an honored one among my people.
[Curzon was the Dax symbiont's previous host, and was central to peace negotiations between the Federation and the Klingon Empire]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [in Klingon] Yeah, but I'm a lot better looking than he was.
Lt. Commander Worf: I suppose so. Excuse me.
Major Kira: [after Dax has spoken to Worf in Klingon] What did you say to him?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: It loses something in the translation.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [ordering two holo-bat'leths for herself and Worf] I thought you might be tired of fighting holograms.
Lt. Commander Worf: It would not be a fair match.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I'll go easy on you.

[Worf and O'Brien are reminiscing about their days on the Enterprise]
Lt. Commander Worf: We were like warriors from the ancient sagas. There was nothing we could not do.
Chief O'Brien: Except keep the holodecks working right.

Lt. Commander Worf: Worf, son of Mogh, does not break his word.

[Worf has decided to resign from Starfleet, not unlike Sisko had almost done once]
Captain Sisko: I understand you're headed for the Nyberrite Alliance?
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes, I leave this afternoon.
Captain Sisko: For me, it was a job on Earth - directing construction of orbital habitats.
Lt. Commander Worf: Why did you change your mind?
Captain Sisko: I finally realized that it wasn't Starfleet I wanted to get away from. I was trying to escape the pain I felt, after my wife's death. I thought I could take the uniform, wrap it around that pain and toss them both away. But it doesn't work like that. Running may help for a little while. But sooner or later, the pain catches up with you; and the only way to get rid of it is to stand your ground, and face it.
Lt. Commander Worf: But wearing that uniform must remind you of what you have lost.
Captain Sisko: Sometimes. But it also reminds me of what I've gained, and who I am. Oh, I can throw away the uniform, resign my commission, run all the way to the Nyberrite Alliance. But it really wouldn't matter. A Starfleet officer - that's what I am, and that's what I'll always be.

Lt. Commander Worf: In war, there is nothing more honorable than victory.

Lt. Commander Worf: Kahless himself said "Destroying an Empire to win a war is no victory."
Gowron: "And ending a battle to save an Empire is no defeat."

Quark: [Worf arrives at the promenade for the first time] Let me guess, Kilngon bloodwine.
Lt. Commander Worf: Prune juice. Chilled.
Quark: [laughs] Prune juice!
[Worf glares at him]
Quark: If you say so.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Rightful Heir (#6.23)" (1993)
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Have you lost your faith in Sto-vo-kor?
Lieutenant Worf: To lose something, one must first possess it.

Koroth: What is the story of The Promise, Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: When Kahless had united our people and gave them the laws of honor, he saw that his work was done. So one night he gathered his belongings and departed for the edge of the city to say goodbye.
Koroth: The people wept. They did not want him to go.
Lieutenant Worf: Then Kahless said: "You are Klingons. You need no one but yourselves. I will go now to Sto-vo-kor. But I promise, one day I will return." Then Kahless pointed to a star in the sky and said: "Look for me there, on that point of light."

Lt. Commander Data: I once had what could be considered a crisis of the spirit.
Lieutenant Worf: You?
Lt. Commander Data: Yes. The Starfleet officers who first activated me on Omicron Theta told me I was an android - nothing more than a sophisticated machine with human form. However, I realized that if I was simply a machine, I could never be anything else; I could never grow beyond my programming. I found that difficult to accept. So I chose to believe... that I was a person; that I had the potential to be more than a collection of circuits and subprocessors. It is a belief which I still hold.
Lieutenant Worf: How did you come to your decision?
Lt. Commander Data: I made... a leap of faith.

Lieutenant Worf: [on the impact of Kahless's return] It will be glorious!
Gowron: It will be war!

Kahless: Are you contemplating yet another question for me? After three days, I'm beginning to wonder if you know how to do anything else.
Lieutenant Worf: Questions are the beginning of wisdom, the mark of a true warrior.
Kahless: Do not forget that a leader need not answer questions of those he leads. It is enough that he says to do a thing, and they will do it. If he says to run, they run. If he says to fight, they fight. If he says to die - they die.

Kahless: You still do not believe it is me, do you, Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: I want to believe.
Kahless: That is a beginning.

Lieutenant Worf: It is true - Kahless has returned!

[Worf has suggested that Kahless be made Emperor and spiritual leader of the Klingon world]
Koroth: The title is meaningless without the power to back it up!
Lieutenant Worf: Real power comes from within the heart.

Lieutenant Worf: Even if he is not the real Kahless, he is the rightful heir to Kahless.

Lieutenant Worf: I went to Boreth to find my faith. For a time, I thought I had. But my heart is empty again. I do not know what to believe.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Strange Bedfellows (#7.19)" (1999)
Damar: [after Worf has killed Weyoun 7] They'll just make another copy of him, you know. You should've killed me. There's only one Damar.
Lt. Commander Worf: I will keep that in mind.

[Dax and Worf are hung up upside down]
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: I hate to say it, but this is doing wonders for my back.
Lt. Commander Worf: I doubt that is what our captors had in mind.

Lt. Commander Worf: We must get back to the station and warn Starfleet about the Breen.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You're right. There's just a few problems. We're on a Jem'Hadar ship, heading in the wrong direction, hanging upside down, and...
Lt. Commander Worf: And what?
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: I think I'm getting space-sick.

Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You have the biggest ego of any man I've ever known!
Lt. Commander Worf: Considering how many men you have known, that is quite a statement.

Lt. Commander Worf: You never listen!
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Look who's talking.

Lt. Commander Worf: I realize, Jadzia saw physical love differently than I do. To her it could mean many things, but to me it was a deeply spiritual act. When I made love to you... my motives were not spiritual. It was an unworthy impulse.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Worf, we're not gods or prophets. We're people. We make mistakes.

Lieutenant Ezri Dax: [after reconciling with Worf] Friends?
Lt. Commander Worf: And more.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: And more.

Lt. Commander Worf: It appears, all we have left to do is to be executed.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Sounds like a lazy day to me.

[Damar helps Dax and Worf to escape]
Lt. Commander Worf: Why are you doing this?
Damar: I want you to give a message to the Federation: tell them they have an ally here on Cardassia.
Lt. Commander Worf: Why should we trust you?
Damar: You can either trust me, or you can stay here and be executed.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: I vote for Option One.

Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You know, Worf, I have had just about enough of your little Klingon aphorisms. The only reason I came on this mission was to save your miserable life, so the least you could do is stop acting like a self-righteous targ!
Lt. Commander Worf: Your motives for rescuing me are not honorable.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Do you really think that I would disobey orders and risk my life so that I could seduce you? I hate to burst your bubble, Worf, but it wasn't that good.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Homeward (#7.13)" (1994)
Dobara: [about Nikolai] He is a brave and compassionate man, and I love him. Please, go to him. Make things right between you. I want us to be a family.
Lieutenant Worf: "Us"?
Dobara: Yes. I want you to consider yourself my brother. After all...
[she takes Worf's hand and places it on her belly]
Dobara: ...you're going to be the uncle of my child.

Lieutenant Worf: [to Nikolai] You have not changed. You still expect people to solve the problems you create.

Lieutenant Worf: [of the holodeck malfunctions] It is the sign... of La Forge.

Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: I wasn't going to let those people die just because your Captain started quoting Federation dogma to me.
Lieutenant Worf: Your duty was to respect the Captain's orders and to uphold the Prime Directive.
Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: Duty. That's all that really matters to you, isn't it? Well, I refuse to be bound by an abstraction.

[Vorin is drawing the chronicle of his village]
Vorin: Doesn't your village keep a chronicle?
Lieutenant Worf: Not in this manner.
Vorin: Then how do you teach your children their history? Who their ancestors were, where they come from?
Lieutenant Worf: We... tell each other stories. Make up songs.
Vorin: Stories change with each person who tells them. This - this will always be the same.

Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: Things were never easy between us, were they?
Lieutenant Worf: No.
Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: It's my fault. If I'd been more like you, we wouldn't have had so many problems.
Lieutenant Worf: No. If you had been more like me, these people would not be here now. You gave them a chance at a new life.

Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: The village will need a new chronicle. Someone has to begin it. My child will need a father. My place is here. I'm finally taking responsibility.
Lieutenant Worf: You were never good at drawing. How will you keep a chronicle?
Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: I learn quickly.
Lieutenant Worf: Then perhaps there is hope.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: I will have to explain all of this to Mother and Father.
Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: They won't understand.
Lieutenant Worf: They may. I will tell them... that you are happy.

Dr. Nikolai Rozhenko: [Nikolai has illicitly beamed aboard a colony of Boralaans to one of the Enterprise's Holodecks to save them from a planetary catastrophe] You worry too much, Worf. You always did. Everything will work out.
Lieutenant Worf: You have disgraced yourself. And you have disgraced me. And I want nothing more to do with you.


Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: [before blasting some Borg] Assimilate this!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, do you remember your zero G combat training?
Lt. Commander Worf: I remember how it made me sick to my stomach.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: You want to destroy the ship and run away, you coward.
Lt. Commander Worf: If you were any other man, I would kill you where you stand.

Lt. Commander Worf: The Defiant?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Adrift but salvageable.
Cmdr. William Riker: Tough little ship.
Lt. Commander Worf: Little?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf... I regret some of the things I said to you earlier.
Lt. Commander Worf: "Some"?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: As a matter of fact, I think you're the bravest man I have ever known.
Lt. Commander Worf: Thank you, sir.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Initiate auto-destruct sequence. Authorization: Picard, 4 7 Alpha Tango.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: Computer, Commander Beverly Crusher. Confirm auto-destruct sequence. Authorization: Crusher, 2 2 Beta Charlie.
Lt. Commander Worf: Computer, Lieutenant Commander Worf. Confirm auto-destruct sequence. Authorization: Worf, 3 7 Gamma Echo.
Computer: Command authorization accepted. Awaiting final command.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Destruct sequence: Alpha 1. 15 minutes, silent countdown. Enable.
Computer: Auto-destruct in 15 minutes. There will be no further audio warnings.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: So much for the Enterprise-E.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: We barely knew her.
Dr. Beverly Crusher: Think they'll build another one?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Plenty of letters left in the alphabet.

Defiant Helm Crewman: Main power is off-line, we've lost shields and our weapons are gone!
Lt. Commander Worf: [hits console] Perhaps today *is* a good day to die! Prepare for ramming speed!
Defiant Helm Crewman: Sir, there's another star ship coming in... it's the Enterprise!

Lt. Commander Worf: The Borg have cut primary power to all decks... *except* sixteen.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The Borg won't stay on deck sixteen.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [Picard, Worf and Hawk are walking to the main deflector dish on the Enterprise hull. Picard notices Worf is breathing heavily] How are you doing, Mr. Worf?
Lt. Commander Worf: Not well, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Try not to look at the stars. Keep your eyes on the hull.
[Worf turns his attention to the hull, and looks up toward the deflector dish]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Let's go.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Sword of Kahless (#4.8)" (1995)
Kor: I am on a quest, a quest for the most revered icon in Klingon history, an icon that predates the Klingon Empire, an icon more sacred than the Torch of G'boj, more revered than Sabak's armor, and more coveted than the Emperor's crown.
Lt. Commander Worf: The Sword of Kahless!

Lt. Commander Worf: A true warrior has no need to exaggerate his feats.
Kor: Well, you'd better hope that I exaggerate, or else when they start singing songs about this quest and come to your verse, it will be "and Worf came along".

Kor: The Sword will unite us - if it's held by a true Klingon. Not a politician like Gowron. Or some toothless figurehead, like the Emperor. The Sword must rest in the hands of someone who has been hardened by battle, pure of heart. Who understands loyalty and honor. A warrior like Kang and Koloth.
Lt. Commander Worf: Someone like you?
Kor: ...The Empire could do far worse.

Kor: [after finding the Sword] To think, Kahless himself once held this Bat'leth!
[he passes it on to Worf]
Lt. Commander Worf: With this he slew Molor, conquered the Fek'Ihri, and forged the first Empire. And now, I hold it in my hands!

Lt. Commander Worf: When I held the Sword in my hand, I felt the spirit of Kahless himself had guided me to it. Don't you see? He wants me to have it! He wants me to lead his people!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You sound like Kor.
Lt. Commander Worf: Kor is an old man. His greatest days are behind him. Mine are still ahead.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Then we have a bit of a problem. There's only one Sword, and you both want it.

Kor: [referring to Worf] If he hadn't spared Toral's life, we'd be on the way to Qo'noS.
Lt. Commander Worf: And if you had not been drunk and told a tavernful of people what you were planning, Toral would not have followed us here in the first place.
Kor: I told them nothing of consequence! How can I know that Toral was going to send a Lethean to steal my thoughts?
Lt. Commander Worf: You should have been more discreet!
Kor: And you should've been more of a Klingon!

Lt. Commander Worf: The Sword is not meant for us. It was never our destiny to find it.
Kor: You're wrong. It was our destiny to find it. It just wasn't our destiny... to keep it.

[last lines]
[Worf has beamed the Sword into space]
Lt. Commander Worf: It is done.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Good. It's for the best.
Kor: I hope you're right. It could be lost for another thousand years.
Lt. Commander Worf: When it is destined to be found... it will be.

Kor: [to Worf] I am on a quest, a quest for the most revered icon in Klingon history.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [warningly] Kor...
Kor: An icon that predates the Klingon Empire. An icon more sacred than the torch of G'Bok...
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Kor!
Kor: [ignoring her] ... more revered than Sabak's armor, and more coveted than the Emperor's Crown.
Lt. Commander Worf: The Sword of Kahless!
Kor: Ah!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You told *me* not to tell anybody.
Kor: He guessed!


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Soldiers of the Empire (#5.21)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Worf: [to Martok] May glory and honor follow you on your journey.

Lt. Commander Worf: I am Worf, son of Mogh. I now take my place as first officer. I serve the captain; but I stand for the crew.

Lt. Commander Worf: [to the crew] It is clear to me that none of you are worthy of my blood or my life. But I will stand for you; and together, we will restore honor to this ship and bring glory to the Empire.

Lt. Commander Worf: I have accepted the crew's battle records, and on their behalf, I pledge you our lives and ask that you lead us as Commander of this ship.
Martok: I accept your lives into my hands.

Lt. Commander Worf: You know that I was forced to fight the Jem'Hadar guards in the camp. Each day they would call me to the ring, and each day I would fight. But then there came a day when I... wavered.
Captain Sisko: You mean you didn't want to go back into the ring?
Lt. Commander Worf: No, I mean I considered letting them kill me. It seemed like the only way out. Just before I went into the ring, Martok turned to wish me success. And then he saw what I was planning, he saw it in my eyes. It was a moment of tova'dok.
Captain Sisko: Of what?
Lt. Commander Worf: There is no Human word for it. It is a moment of... clarity, between two warriors on a field of battle. Much is said without the need for words. In that moment, he knew what was in my mind. Once I realized that he saw my intention to give up I could no longer go through with it. I went back into the ring and fought once more. He had given me his warrior's heart. - Perhaps it is something a Human cannot understand.

Martok: On the bridge, during the fight, when you dropped your guard - how did you know I would not kill you?
Lt. Commander Worf: I did not know.

Martok: Your... actions on the Rotarran - at the time I thought they were disloyal. But I have come to realize that your intention was to remind me of my duty as a soldier of the Empire and as a warrior. For that, I am grateful.
Lt. Commander Worf: You did the same for me once.

[last lines]
Martok: I see you're still wearing the crest of the House of Mogh.
Worf: Yes. Jadzia calls it a... sentimental gesture.
Martok: Ah... Perhaps you would consider replacing sentiment with the symbol of a new beginning? The House of Martok would be honored to welcome the son of Mogh into our family, as a warrior - and as a brother.
[he hands his crest to Worf, who replaces his own with it]
Martok, Worf: [both, clasping hands] Qapla'!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Disaster (#5.5)" (1991)
Keiko O'Brien: [during a crisis] I'm having contractions!
Lieutenant Worf: I believe that is not uncommon in the late months of pregnancy.
Keiko O'Brien: No, I mean contractions. I'm going into labor.
Lieutenant Worf: You cannot. This is not a good time, Keiko.
Keiko O'Brien: It's not open for debate. Like it or not, this baby is coming.

Lieutenant Worf: Dilation has gone to seven centimeters since the onset of labor. That did not take long.
Keiko O'Brien: That's easy for you to say.

Keiko O'Brien: Worf, have you ever done this before? Delivered a baby?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. No. I took the Starfleet emergency medical course. In a computerized simulation, I assisted in delivery of a human baby.
Keiko O'Brien: Sometimes it doesn't go by the book, Worf.

[Worf is assisting Keiko in the delivery of her baby]
Lieutenant Worf: I must urge you gently but firmly to push harder.

Lieutenant Worf: Congratulations. You are fully dilated to ten centimeters. You may now give birth.
Keiko O'Brien: [groans] That's what I've been doing.

Lieutenant Worf: My computer simulation was not like this. That delivery was very orderly.
Keiko O'Brien: Well, I'm sorry!

[after the delivery]
Lieutenant Worf: [about Keiko's baby] I believe she looks like Chief O'Brien.

Lieutenant Worf: [Worf is delivering Keiko's baby, and is urging her on with all the intensity and passion as if he was leading a typing class] Push. Push, Keiko. Push.
Keiko O'Brien: [fed up] I AM PUSHING!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Heart of Glory (#1.19)" (1988)
Lieutenant Worf: Why do you mock me? Why do you wish to anger me?
Captain Korris: Only to see if it is still possible.
Lieutenant Worf: It is.

Lieutenant Tasha Yar: I thought for a minute we had a problem.
Lieutenant Worf: Oh?
Lieutenant Tasha Yar: Yes, it looked like Korris was going to hold that little girl as a hostage.
Lieutenant Worf: That is not our way. Cowards take hostages. Klingons do not.

Lieutenant Worf: What burns in their eyes, fires my soul. I hear their words, and I see it all as it was. Part of me longs for that time.
Captain K'Nera: It's bred in the bone. We all do.

Lieutenant Worf: You look for battles in the wrong place. The true test of a warrior is not without, it is within.
[he thumps against his chest]
Lieutenant Worf: Here, here is where we meet the challenge. It is the weaknesses in here a warrior must overcome.
Captain Korris: No.
Lieutenant Worf: You have talked of glory and of conquest, and legends we will write.
Captain Korris: Yes. The birthright of every Klingon.
Lieutenant Worf: Yet in all you say, where are the words 'duty', 'honor', 'loyalty'? Without which a warrior is nothing!

[Worf has refused Korris's offer to join him]
Captain Korris: You are a sham! My words were dust upon the ground. Your blood has no fire. You are weak like them! I don't care what you look like. You are no Klingon!
Lieutenant Worf: Perhaps not.
[shoots Korris]

Captain K'Nera: How did they die?
Lieutenant Worf: They died well.

[Worf has expressed his gratitude to Captain K'Nera for offering him a position on his ship, which earns him inquiring looks from the entire bridge crew]
Lieutenant Worf: I was just being polite, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Ah! Commendable, Lieutenant.
[... ]
Lieutenant Worf: Really. I have no desire to leave the Enterprise.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [surprised about Worf's persistence] Good.


Star Trek: Nemesis (2002)
[Worf picks up B-4's arm]
Data: It appears to be a robotic arm.
Worf: [sarcastically] Very astute.

Geordi La Forge: You ever think about getting married again?
Guinan: No. Twenty-three was my limit.
[Worf groans with his head down on the table]
Guinan: Worf, are you alright?
Worf: [feeling groggy] Romulan ale should be illegal.
Geordi La Forge: It is.

[Data is singing "Blue Skies" at the wedding]
Worf: [nauseous] Irving Berlin...
[his head slumps back on the table]

Commander Deanna Troi: [pleading] It's tradition, Worf! You of all people should appreciate that.
Worf: [angry and a little embarrassed] I will not do it!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [entering the bridge] Won't do what, Mr. Worf?
Worf: Captain, I do not think it is appropriate for a Starfleet officer to appear... naked.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Oh, come now. A big, handsome, strapping fellow like you? What can you be afraid of?

Commander William T. Riker: [referring to the two decloaking Romulan warbirds] Just when I thought this couldn't get any worse.
Worf: We are being hailed.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: On screen.
Commander Donatra: Captain Picard. Commander Donatra of the Warbird Valdore. Might we be of assistance?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Assistance?
Commander Donatra: The Empire considers this a matter of internal security. We regret you've become involved.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [relieved] Commander, when this is over, I owe you a drink.
[the Valdore is attacked]
Commander Donatra: Romulan ale, Captain. Let's get to work.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: You heard the lady. Let's go to work!

Worf: [to Data, when discovering B-4's head] It's you!
Data: The resemblance is... striking.

Worf: The Romulans fought with honor.
Commander William T. Riker: Yes, they did, Mr. Worf.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Tacking Into the Wind (#7.22)" (1999)
Lt. Commander Worf: We cannot attack Sarpedion.
Gowron: I decide what can and cannot be done!
Lt. Commander Worf: You rule without wisdom and without honor. The warriors that are gathered here will not say this to you, but I will. You are squandering our ships and our lives on a petty act of vengeance!
Gowron: I should have known better than to trust you again. If you were a true Klingon, I would kill you where you stand! Fortunately for you, that 'child's' uniform shields you from you rightful fate.

Lt. Commander Worf: [referring to Martok] He likes you, and he considers you an honorable woman, a worthy successor to Jadzia. And so do I.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: That's very sweet of him.
Lt. Commander Worf: Sweet?
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Not a very Klingon word, is it?
Lt. Commander Worf: No.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: It's very... honorable.
Lt. Commander Worf: Better - albeit a little obvious.

Lieutenant Ezri Dax: I tend to look at the Empire with a little more skepticism than Curzon or Jadzia did. I see a society that is in deep denial about itself. We're talking about a warrior culture that prides itself on maintaining centuries-old traditions of honor and integrity. But in reality, it's willing to accept corruption at the highest levels.
Lt. Commander Worf: You are overstating your case.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Am I? Who was the last leader of the High Council that you respected? Has there even been one? And how many times have you had to cover up the crimes of Klingon leaders because you were told that it was for the good of the Empire? I... I know this sounds harsh, but the truth is, you have been willing to accept a government that you know is corrupt. Gowron is just the latest example. Worf, you are the most honorable and decent man that I've ever met. And if *you're* willing to tolerate men like Gowron, then what hope is there for the Empire?

Martok: You want me to become chancellor - me! Tell me, Worf, how do you think the members of the High Council will react when they're asked to follow a common man from the Ketha lowlands, a man without a drop of noble blood in his veins?
Worf: Kahless himself was not high-born.
Martok: Kahless was divine!

Lt. Commander Worf: [citing Kahless] Great men do not seek power. They have power thrust upon them.

Lt. Commander Worf: What I say now, I say as a member of the House of Martok, not a Starfleet officer.
[to Gowron]
Lt. Commander Worf: You have dishonored yourself and the Empire, and you are not worthy to lead the Council.

Lt. Commander Worf: What I have done was for the Empire. A new day must dawn for our people. I am not the man to usher in that day. But there is a man here who can.
Martok: Worf - I do not seek the leadership.
Lt. Commander Worf: Kahless said "Great men do not seek power. They have power thrust upon them."
[Worf hands the Chancellor's robes to Martok]
Lt. Commander Worf: Hail Martok, leader of the Empire - leader of destiny!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ethics (#5.16)" (1992)
[first lines]
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: No question about it. She was bluffing, Worf.
Lieutenant Worf: Bluffing is not one of Counselor Troi's strong suits -... - No, it would've been unwise to call. Yes, my hand was not strong enough.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: You had jacks and eights, and she bluffed you with a pair of sixes.
Lieutenant Worf: How did *you* know what I had?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Let's just say I had a special insight into the cards.
[points at his VISOR]
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Maybe next time you should bring a deck that's not transparent to infrared light.
[Worf looks at him suspiciously]
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: [jovially] Not to worry, Worf. I only peek after the hand is over.

Lieutenant Worf: I have a personal favor to ask.
Commander William T. Riker: Name it.
Lieutenant Worf: I want you to assist me in performing the Hegh'bat ceremony. I want you to help me die.

Lieutenant Worf: Will you, or will you not, help me with the Hegh'bat?
Commander William T. Riker: You are my friend. And in spite of everything I've said, if it were my place, I would probably help you. But I have been studying Klingon ritual and Klingon law, and I've discovered... it is not my place to fill that role. According to tradition, that honor falls to a family member - preferably the oldest son.
Lieutenant Worf: That is impossible. He is a child.
Commander William T. Riker: "The son of a Klingon is a man the day he can first hold a blade." True?
Lieutenant Worf: Alexander is not fully Klingon. He is part Human!
Commander William T. Riker: That's an excuse. What you really mean... is, it would be too hard to look at your son and tell him to bring you the knife, watch you stab it into your heart, then pull the knife out of your chest and wipe your blood on his sleeve. That's the rite of death, isn't it? Well, I'm sorry, Mr. Worf - I can't help you. There's only one person on this ship who can.

Commander William T. Riker: Remember Sandoval? Hit with a disrupter blast two years ago - she lived for about a week... Fang-Lee, Marla Aster, Tasha Yar? How many men and women, how many friends have we watched die? I've lost count. Every one of them, every single one fought for life until the very end!
Lieutenant Worf: I do not welcome death, Commander.
Commander William T. Riker: Are you sure? Because I get the sense you're feeling pretty noble about this whole thing. "Look at me! Aren't I courageous, aren't I an honorable Klingon?" Let me remind you of something: a Klingon does not put his desires above those of his family, or his friends.

Lieutenant Worf: I need you to help me.
Alexander Rozhenko: Anything, Father.
Lieutenant Worf: I have taught you about... Klingon customs - the beliefs which we value. According to a tradition, I must take my life, after suffering this kind of injury. But I have decided to break with tradition. I have decided to live.
Alexander Rozhenko: I'm glad, Father.
Lieutenant Worf: I will still have to undergo a dangerous operation. I may still die. But it will not be by my own hand.
[hands Alexander his ritual knife]
Lieutenant Worf: Return this to our quarters.
Alexander Rozhenko: [takes it] Yes, sir.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: We will work together.
Alexander Rozhenko: Yes, sir.

Lieutenant Worf: [Worf refusing to try a procedure that would grant him limited mobility after his paralysis] I will not be seen lurching through corridors like some half-Klingon machine. An object of ridicule and disgust.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Dauphin (#2.10)" (1989)
[Worf gives Wesley advice on romance from a Klingon perspective]
Wesley Crusher: Are you telling me to go yell at Salia?
Lieutenant Worf: No. Men do not roar. Women roar. Then they hurl heavy objects... and claw at you.
Wesley Crusher: What does the man do?
Lieutenant Worf: [dreamily] He reads love poetry...
Lieutenant Worf: [back to his serious self] He ducks a lot.

Wesley Crusher: I think I need to try something a little less... dangerous.
Lieutenant Worf: Go to her door. Beg like a human.

Lieutenant Worf: Do not be fooled by her looks. The body is just a shell.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, have our passengers' accommodation met with their approval?
Lieutenant Worf: I doubt if anything ever meets with that woman's approval - sir.

[Anya has turned out to be an allasomorph, a shapeshifting species]
Lieutenant Worf: Captain - what if Anya transforms?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Improvise.

Anya: You'll be happy to see me leave.
Lieutenant Worf: No. You are a worthy opponent.
Anya: Thank you. At heart, we are very much alike.
Lieutenant Worf: Yes, we are.
Anya: Perhaps we shall fight again. On the same side?
Lieutenant Worf: It would be an honor.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Redemption (#4.26)" (1991)
[Worf and Guinan during target practice]
Guinan: You know, I had a bet with the Captain that I could make you laugh before you became lieutenant commander.
Lieutenant Worf: Not a good bet today.
Guinan: I've seen you laugh. I like it.
Lieutenant Worf: Klingons do not laugh.
Guinan: Oh, yes, they do. Absolutely they do. You don't. But I've heard Klingon belly laughs that'd curl your hair.
[both continue with their target practice for a while]
Guinan: Your son laughs. He's Klingon.
Lieutenant Worf: He is a child and part Human!
Guinan: That's right. And you're not; you're a full Klingon, except... you don't laugh.

Kurn: Gowron *spits* in your face when you ask him to give back what is rightfully ours. And you would support him?
Lieutenant Worf: We cannot regain honor by acting dishonorably.

Lieutenant Worf: I believe you to be a man of honor, Gowron. I ask you: restore my family name.
Gowron: Worf - you killed Duras. I consider that no small favor. But what you ask is impossible.
Lieutenant Worf: But after your installation...
Gowron: The grasp of Duras reaches out from the grave. Much of the Council is still loyal to his family. I must have the Council's support, to survive. I cannot expose their treachery. You chose to accept this disgrace, for the good of the Empire. Now you must live with your decision, like a Klingon.

Lieutenant Worf: I have been told that patience is sometimes a more effective weapon than the sword.

Lieutenant Worf: I was rescued from Khitomer - by Humans. Raised and loved by Human parents. I spent most of my life around Humans, fought beside them. But I was born a Klingon. My heart is of that world. I... do hear the cry of the warrior. I belong with my people.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Being the only Klingon ever to serve in Starfleet gave you a singular distinction. But... I felt that what was unique about you was your humanity: compassion, generosity, fairness. You took the best qualities of humanity and made them part of you. The result was a man who I was proud to call one of my officers.

Lieutenant Worf: Permission to leave the ship, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Permission granted. Qapla'!
Lieutenant Worf: Goodbye.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Once More Unto the Breach (#7.7)" (1998)
General Martok: One ship - against ten. It doesn't seem possible.
Lt. Commander Worf: He will succeed. He is Kor, the Dahar Master.

[O'Brien and Bashir are arguing about the alleged end of Davy Crockett at the Alamo]
Lt. Commander Worf: You are both wrong. The only real question is whether you believe in the legend of Davy Crockett or not. If you do, then there should be no doubt in your mind that he died a hero's death. If you do not believe in the legend, then he was just a man, and it does not matter how he died.

Lt. Commander Worf: I must tell you that using my own authority, I appointed Kor an officer in the Ninth Fleet.
General Martok: Made him an officer, just like that? That's the difference between his name and mine. His opens doors; mine closes them.

Lt. Commander Worf: Today was not my day to die.

[last lines]
Kolana: He's done it. The Jem'Hadar are out of time. They can no longer overtake us before we reach the Defiant.
General Martok: How? How did that pompous old man hold off an entire Jem'Hadar fleet with only one ship?
Lt. Commander Worf: Does it matter?
General Martok: Darok, give me that bottle.
[cuts off the stopper and raises the bottle]
General Martok: To Kor, a Dahar Master, and noble warrior to the end!
[the other Klingons fall into a battle song, in honor to Kor]

Kor: I heard the news about Jadzia.
Lt. Commander Worf: She died a warrior.
Kor: I expected nothing less.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places (#5.3)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: I am a fool.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You're in love. Which, I suppose, is the same thing.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: What is it you see in her anyway? I mean, she's attractive, but other than that?
Lt. Commander Worf: It is everything about her. The way she carries herself, confident and strong. She commands those around her. The proud tilt of her head, the way her face betrays none of her true feelings, the power of her voice. And her eyes, they're as hard as separ gemstones, and twice as sharp.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Sounds like you're describing a statue. What would you do with a woman like that? Put her up on a pedestal and clean her every week?

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: If I were in your shoes, I would be looking for someone a little more entertaining, a little more fun and maybe even a little more attainable.
Lt. Commander Worf: You are not in my shoes.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Too bad. You'd be amazed at what I can do in a pair of size 18 boots.

Quark: Her bodyguard was giving me threatening looks all night.
Lt. Commander Worf: That is to be expected. The idea of a Ferengi courting a great lady is... offensive.
Quark: You know, it's attitudes like that that keep you people from getting invited to all the really good parties.

[Thopok has challenged Quark to a fight to the death]
Quark: So my choices are to not show up, be branded a coward and lose Grilka, or die?
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes.
Quark: Oh, come on now, there must be another way out of this! You people have rituals for everything except waste extraction. You must have a ceremony or a secret handshake or something I can do?

Doctor Bashir: [running a medical scanner over Quark] A compound fracture of the right radius, 2 fractured ribs, torn ligaments, strained tendons, numerous contusions, bruises, and scratches. What have you been doing?
Quark: You mean,
[trades a Look with Grilka]
Quark: what have *we* been doing?
Doctor Bashir: [realization dawning] Never mind. I don't need that particular image running around in my head. I'll just treat you.
Doctor Bashir: [the door opens, and a battered Dax and Worf enter] What happened to you two?
Lt. Commander Worf: We, um...
[looks to Dax]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Well, um... if you must know...
Doctor Bashir: No! No, I don't need that image, either. In fact, I'm going to stop asking that question altogether! People can come in, I will treat them, and that's all!


Star Trek: Insurrection (1998)
Lieutenant Commander Worf: The Son'a wish to negotiate a cease-fire. It may have to do with the fact that we only have three minutes of air left.

[there is a blemish on Worf's face]
Captain Picard: Have you been in a fight, Mr Worf?
Lieutenant Commander Worf: [sighs] No sir... it is a "gorch".
Captain Picard: Gorch?
Data: [whispers] Pimple, sir.
Captain Picard: Oh... it's hardly noticeable.

Captain Picard: Mr. Worf, do you know Gilbert and Sullivan?
Lieutenant Commander Worf: No sir, I have not had a chance to meet all the new crew members since I have been back.

Lieutenant Commander Worf: [after disabling a drone with his phaser-compression rifle] Definitely feeling aggressive tendency, sir!

Counselor Deanna Troi: Have you noticed how your boobs have firmed up?
Cmdr. Beverly Crusher: Not that we care about that in this day and age.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Uh huh.
Cmdr. Beverly Crusher: [notices Data] Thank you, Data.
Data: [walks over to Worf]
Lieutenant Commander Worf: I've an odd craving for the blood of a live Kolar beast.
Data: And have you noticed how your boobs have firmed up? Not that we care about tha...

Sona Officer: He wouldn't?
Lieutenant Commander Worf: Yes, he would!


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: You Are Cordially Invited... (#6.7)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Worf: Anyone can see that we are hopelessly mismatched. She is a Trill, I'm a Klingon. She has had five marriages; this would be my first. When she is laughing, I am somber. When I am happy, she is crying. She plays tongo with the Ferengi bartender; I can barely stand him. She mocks everything, while I take everything seriously. She is nothing like the woman I thought I would marry.
Martok: We are not accorded the luxury of choosing the women we fall in love with. Do you think Sirella is anything like the woman I thought that I'd marry? She is a prideful, arrogant, mercurial woman, who shares my bed far too infrequently for my taste. And yet... I love her, deeply. We Klingons often tout our prowess in battle, our desire for glory and honor above all else. But how hollow is the sound of victory without someone to share it with. Honor gives little comfort to a man alone in his home... and in his heart.

Lt. Commander Worf: As you probably know by now, Jadzia and I will be married here on the station in six days.
Doctor Bashir: There's nothing more romantic than a wedding on DS9 in springtime.
Chief O'Brien: When the neutrinos are in bloom.

Lt. Commander Worf: There are six trials we must face on the path to Kal'Hyah. This is the first - deprivation. We now begin a fast that will continue until the day of the wedding.
Doctor Bashir: That's four days away.
Martok: It is a short time, I know, but we must make the best of it.
Captain Sisko: What are the other five trials?
Lt. Commander Worf: Blood, pain, sacrifice, anguish, and death.
Doctor Bashir: Sounds like marriage alright.
Chief O'Brien: How would you know?

Lt. Commander Worf: Now begins the trial of blood.
Martok: Let rivers flow from our veins.
Lt. Commander Worf: Who will be first?
[O'Brien, Sisko and Alexander clandestinely move one step backwards, while Bashir, somewhat groggy, stays put]
Lt. Commander Worf: I did not expect it to be you, Doctor.
Doctor Bashir: [looks around] Neither did I.

Lt. Commander Worf: You are forbidden to join the House of Martok.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: So I won't be invited to the family picnics. I'll live.

Lt. Commander Worf: [referring to a number of pugil sticks] These... are Ma'Stakas.
Doctor Bashir: What, er... what do we do with them?
General Martok: At the conclusion of the wedding ceremony, you will use them to attack Worf and Dax.
Chief O'Brien: Obviously. Don't you know anything?
Lt. Commander Worf: The tradition dates back to the wedding of Kahless and Lukara, who were nearly killed by Molor's troops, moments after they were married. Until the ceremony, you should keep these with you at all times.
Captain Sisko: I trust this combat is non-lethal?
General Martok: It is a symbolic attack only.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Up the Long Ladder (#2.18)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: Madam, have you ever considered a career in Security?
Brenna Odell: If it's anything like babysitting, I'm an authority!

Lieutenant Worf: I am fine.
Doctor Pulaski: You're not fine, you fainted.
Lieutenant Worf: I did not faint. Klingons do not faint.
Doctor Pulaski: Excuse me, I'll rephrase: this Klingon suffered a dramatic drop in blood pressure; his blood glucose level dropped. There was deficient blood flow resulting from circulatory failure. In other words, he curled up his toes and lay unconscious on the floor.
Lieutenant Worf: Doctor, there is no need to insult me.

Lieutenant Worf: [about Klingon tea ceremony] It is a test of bravery - of one's ability to look at the face of mortality. It is also a reminder that death is an experience best shared - like the tea.
Doctor Pulaski: Worf, you're a romantic!
Lieutenant Worf: It is among the Klingons that love poetry achieves its fullest flower.

[Worf shows Odell how to use the replicator]
Danilo Odell: Whisky!
[a glass materializes, Danilo sniffs it, takes a sip, and winces in disgust]
Danilo Odell: Terrible! It has no bite.
Lieutenant Worf: [to replicator] Chech'tluth!
[a smoking Klingon goblet appears. Odell takes a sip... and then a deep breath, as his eyes cross]
Danilo Odell: [hoarsely] Now, that's what I call a wee drop of the creature.

[Odell has complained about "lightning bolts" falling from the ceiling]
Danilo Odell: Yeah, what the hell was that thing?
Lieutenant Worf: Automated fire system. A force field contains the flame until the remaining oxygen has been consumed.
Danilo Odell: Ah, yeah, w-what if I had been under that thing?
Lieutenant Worf: You would have been standing in the fire.
Danilo Odell: Yeah, well, leaving that aside for the moment, I mean, what would have happened to me?
Lieutenant Worf: You would have suffocated and died.
Danilo Odell: Ye-ah, sweet mercy.

Doctor Pulaski: Tell me, is your entire population made up of clones, Prime Minister?
Lieutenant Worf: Clones?
Commander William T. Riker: Clones?
Prime Minister Granger: Clones.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Déjà Q (#3.13)" (1990)
Capt. Picard: Return that moon to its orbit.
Q: I have no powers! Q the ordinary.
Capt. Picard: Q the liar! Q the misanthrope!
Q: Q the miserable, Q the desperate! What must I do to convince you people?
Lieutenant Worf: Die.
Q: Oh, very clever, Worf. Eat any good books lately?

[Q tries unsuccessfully to convince Worf that he has truly become an ordinary human]
Lieutenant Worf: You have fooled us too often, Q.
Q: Oh, perspicacity incarnate. Please don't feel compelled now to tell me the story of "The Boy Who Cried 'Worf'".

Capt. Picard: Fine. You want to be treated as human?
Q: Absolutely.
Capt. Picard: All right. Mr. Worf - throw him in the brig!
Lieutenant Worf: Delighted, Captain.

Q: It was a mistake. I never should have picked human. I knew it the moment I said it. To think of a future in this shell... forced to cover myself with a fabric because of some outdated human morality, to say nothing of being too hot or too cold. Growing feeble with age, losing my hair, catching a disease, being ticklish, sneezing, having an itch, a pimple, bad breath...
[looks at Worf]
Q: Having to *bathe!*
Lieutenant Worf: Too bad!

Lieutenant Worf: Be quiet! Or disappear back where you came from.
Q: I can't disappear - any more than you could win a beauty contest.

Q: You can't do this to me, Jean-Luc.
Lieutenant Worf: [grabs Q's arm and starts to pull] You will walk or I will carry you.
Q: Given the option, I - I'll walk. You disappointment me, Jean-Luc. I'm disappointed.
[Worf and Q enter turbolift]
Q: Hey, I'm claustrophobic. I don't like it in here.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Peak Performance (#2.21)" (1989)
Lt. Cmdr. Data: For over nine millennia, potential foes have regarded the Zakdorns as having the greatest innately strategic minds in the galaxy.
Lieutenant Worf: So, no one is willing to test that perception in combat?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Exactly.
Lieutenant Worf: Then the reputation means nothing.

Commander William T. Riker: You're outmanned, you're outgunned, you're outequipped. What else have you got?
Lieutenant Worf: Guile.

Lt. Cmdr. Data: If the warp engines fail to function, the result could be... unfortunate.
Lieutenant Worf: Very unfortunate. We will be dead.

Lieutenant Worf: I have wagered heavily in the ship's pool that you will take him past the sixth plateau.
Commander William T. Riker: And if I don't?
Lieutenant Worf: I will be... irritated.

Lieutenant Worf: If there is nothing to lose, no... sacrifice, then there is nothing to gain.

Lt. Cmdr. Data: If the warp drive fails to activate, the results could be... unfortunate.
Lieutenant Worf: Very unfortunate. We will be dead.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Firstborn (#7.21)" (1994)
[first lines]
Lieutenant Worf: As time passes, a boy inevitably becomes a man. But what is not inevitable is that a man become a warrior. A warrior must be forged like a sword, tempered by... by...
Lieutenant Worf: [remembers] Tempered by experience.

Lieutenant Worf: [repeating his speech to Alexander] As time passes, a boy inevitably becomes a man. But what is not inevitable is that a man becomes a sword...

Lieutenant Worf: If you are Alexander, you will remember your mother's last words before she died.
Alexander Rozhenko at 50: I was three years old. She was dying when we found her. She barely managed to whisper my name. And then she took my hand and placed it in yours. And she died. And then you howled in rage, and said "Look upon her. Look upon death, and always remember." And I always have.

Lieutenant Worf: [showing Lursa and B'Etor a knife] This was dropped by one of the assassins. It bears the crest of your house.
Lursa: Someone must have given it to the assassins to implicate us.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Why would someone do that?
B'Etor: In order to tarnish our good name.
Lieutenant Worf: You cannot tarnish a rusted blade.

Alexander Rozhenko at 50: [referring to young Alexander] I staged the assassination attempt to try and frighten him, to make him realize that he must follow the ways of the warrior. If I had listened to you, if I had become the warrior that you had wanted me to be... you would not have died in my arms.
Lieutenant Worf: No. Who knows what the future will be, now that you have disrupted time. I may die tomorrow, or I may outlive you. But when I die, I would like an honorable death; and the only way that is possible is for you to accept yourself as you are, and stay true to what you believe.

Lieutenant Worf: You have given me a glimpse into my son's future. And I know now that he has his own destiny. And I believe it will be a great one.
[they hug]
Alexander Rozhenko at 50: I love you, Father.
Lieutenant Worf: And I you, Alexander.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Shattered Mirror (#4.19)" (1996)
Garak: The Intendant was bad enough. She was irrational, accusatory, unappreciative, but at least...
Regent Worf: At least... what?
Garak: At least... I was able to please her now and then.
Regent Worf: You are not my type!
Garak: I never said I was.

Regent Worf: Terek Nor will soon be ours again! Then you can spend the rest of your life contemplating your failure as you labour alongside the other slaves in the ore processing center!
Garak: It's nice to have something to look forward to.

Garak: Believe me, my Regent, it will take the blood of many rebels to quench the thirst of my revenge.
Regent Worf: [laughs] Spoken like a Klingon!
Garak: I'm trying.

Regent Worf: Make it so!

[Regent Worf suspects Garak to have stolen a key]
Garak: You've searched me three times already. Where could I possibly be hiding it?
Regent Worf: Perhaps you swallowed it.
Garak: Impossible. I'm very particular about what I eat.

Regent Worf: This time, I will deal with the rebels myself.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: New Ground (#5.10)" (1992)
Helena Rozhenko: Alexander is a, is a fine boy, Worf. He's, he's smart and he's high-spirited, a lot like you were at that age. And sometimes, when he comes running through the house, then he knocks over that big green lamp, just like you used to do.
Lieutenant Worf: I don't remember you smiling when I knocked over that lamp.
Helena Rozhenko: Well, maybe once, when you weren't looking.

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Data! Data, isn't this exciting? We are going to witness a moment in history!
Lt. Commander Data: [puzzled] Every nanosecond in this continuum is a moment in history, once it has elapsed.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: No, no, no, no, I mean, we are gonna see something that people will talk about for years! I mean, think about it: no more bulky warp engines, or nacelles. A ship just generates a soliton wave and then rides it through space, like a surfboard. This is going to be like being there to watch Chuck Yeager break the sound barrier, or Zefram Cochrane engage the first warp drive!
Lt. Commander Data: [emotionless] It should be interesting.
Lieutenant Worf: [equally unenthusiastic] Very exciting.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I'm talking to the wrong crowd. Er, D-Donaldson! Donaldson, you're an engineer...!
[hurries off]

Lieutenant Worf: I apologize for being late Captain. I was detained in school.

Lieutenant Worf: Lieutenant Worf, personal log, stardate 45376.8 - Alexander has acted shamefully, and as his father, I must now deal with him. But I find that I would rather fight ten Balduk warriors than face one small child.

Counselor Deanna Troi: Have you ever wondered how Alexander felt about being sent away?
Lieutenant Worf: He was... very young. I am sure that he was confused.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Do you think he felt abandoned? After all, he left very soon after K'Ehleyr's death. In a way, he not only lost his mother; he lost his father as well.

[last lines]
[Worf had considered sending Alexander to a Klingon school]
Lieutenant Worf: Klingon schools are designed to be difficult. The physical and mental hardships faced by the students are meant to build character and strength. However - if you wish to face a greater challenge, you may stay here with me. It would not be easy - for either of us. But perhaps we can face the challenge together.
Alexander Rozhenko: I accept your challenge, Father. I will stay.
Lieutenant Worf: I believe your mother would be pleased.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Transfigurations (#3.25)" (1990)
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: That's her.
Lieutenant Worf: Which one?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: The one on the right. Don't stare!
Lieutenant Worf: Why not?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Because she'll see!
Lieutenant Worf: Good. You must let her see the fire in your eyes.

Lieutenant Worf: Less talk - more synthehol!

Lieutenant Worf: Words come later. It is the scent that first speaks of love.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Thanks, Worf. That helps a lot!

Lieutenant Worf: I have much to teach you about women!
[after La Forge has made a fool of himself when approached by Christy]

Lieutenant Worf: [to Data] I've been tutoring him. He learns very quickly.
[after La Forge has made a smooth pass at Christy]


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Broken Link (#4.25)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: Captain! Was Dax's last host as argumentative as this one?
Captain Sisko: Worse.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Thank you Benjamin - I think.

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Benjamin, someone's requesting permission to come on board.
Captain Sisko: Who is it?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Garak.
Lt. Commander Worf: Tell him the ship is off limits to Cardassian spies.

[Major Kira starts having one of her sneezing fits]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [counting] ... two... three... I say she stops at seven.
Captain Sisko: I say eight. Mr. Worf?
Lt. Commander Worf: Ten!
[Kira stops after eight sneezes]
Major Kira: I hate being pregnant!
Captain Sisko: I win!

Lt. Commander Worf: You fight well - for a tailor.

Chief O'Brien: It's funny - I've served on half a dozen ships, and none of them have had cloaking devices except the Defiant. Now that we're not using it I feel... naked.
Lt. Commander Worf: It is disconcerting, to say the least.
Captain Sisko: Gentlemen, I feel the same breeze you do.
[Dax smiles to herself]
Chief O'Brien: What're you smiling at?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I don't know, I guess it's just being in the same room with so many naked men.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sons and Daughters (#6.3)" (1997)
[Dax has told Worf that she'd refuse to join the House of Martok]
Lt. Commander Worf: If you refuse, it will be a grave dishonor. General Martok will not understand...!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Worf - I'm joking.
Lt. Commander Worf: So you *will* join our House?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Of course I will.
Lt. Commander Worf: I can see, our lives together will not be easy.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: True. But they'll be fun.

Alexander Rozhenko: [presenting himself to Martok and Worf] Alexander Rozhenko.
Lt. Commander Worf: Alexander.
Martok: Rozhenko? Of what House is Rozhenko?
Alexander Rozhenko: Of no House, sir. My honor will be my own.

Martok: Nothing breaks the tension better than a tankard of warnog - except maybe a good brawl...
Lt. Commander Worf: You heard about the fight in the mess hall.
Martok: Yes, but not from my First Officer. I lost him the moment his son stepped aboard this ship.

Lt. Commander Worf: We both know you do not belong here. You heard what I expect from the rest of the crew. Twice that I expect from you! Do we understand each other?
Alexander Rozhenko: Perfectly.

Lt. Commander Worf: I cannot change the mistakes I have made. But from this day forward, I promise, I will stand with you.
Alexander Rozhenko: We'll see if you mean it.
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes, we will. What you're about to do entails a grave obligation. Do not accept it lightly.
Alexander Rozhenko: I understand. And I accept.
Lt. Commander Worf: Good. I will teach you what you need to know to be a warrior. And you will teach me what I need to know to be a father.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: In Purgatory's Shadow (#5.14)" (1997)
Worf: What about Garak?
Captain Sisko: I want him back too. I suppose I don't have to tell you to keep a close eye on him.
Worf: At the first sign of betrayal I will kill him, but I promise to return the body intact.
Captain Sisko: I assume that's a joke?
Worf: We will see.

Elim Garak: Lying is a skill like any other, and if you want to maintain a level of excellence you have to practice constantly.
Worf: Practice on someone else.
Elim Garak: Mr. Worf, you're no fun at all.
Worf: Good!

Elim Garak: Remember: it's not just Tain we're looking for. The Maryland, the Proxima, the Sarajevo, Starfleet ships that have been lost in the Gamma Quadrant for years; and their crews - brave soldiers, warriors of the Federation unaccounted for... We owe it to them to do everything in our power to find them and bring them home. It's the honorable thing to do.
Worf: You use that word, but you have no idea what it means.
Elim Garak: Maybe not. But you do.

Worf: [referring to Tain] What is wrong with him?
Martok: It's his heart.
Elim Garak: Really? There are many people who'd say he doesn't have one.

Worf: A Klingon warrior does not have to explain why he chooses to face danger, not even to his Par'Mach'kai.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: So in other words, you were afraid I'd make a scene, that I'd embarrass you, maybe even cry.
Worf: You are capable of anything.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Matter of Honor (#2.8)" (1989)
Commander William T. Riker: It's been my understanding that one of the duties of the first officer of the Klingon vessel is to assassinate his captain?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes, sir.
Commander William T. Riker: Wouldn't that bring about chaos?
Lieutenant Worf: Of course not. See, when and if the captain becomes weak or unable to perform, it is expected that his honorable retirement should be assisted by his First. Your second officer will assassinate you for the same reasons.

Commander William T. Riker: It is different.
Lieutenant Worf: Many things will be different.

Lieutenant Worf: Ensign Mendon - you may impress *me*!

[last lines]
Commander William T. Riker: You come from a very brave and unique people. I'm glad you're with us on the Enterprise.
Lieutenant Worf: Thank you, Commander. And... welcome home.

Ensign Mendon: [Mendon intercepts Picard just as he was about to enter a turbolift] Sir, I'm Ensign Mendon. I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am to be aboard the Enterprise.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [a little distracted] Yes, of course. Nice to have you on board.
Ensign Mendon: [Picard moves to leave but Mendon isn't finished] If you have a few minutes I've noticed a few procedural items that could speed up operations on the Bridge. I pick things up very quickly.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I'm sure you do Ensign, you have an excellent record. However, on the Enterprise we use the chain of command. You may report your observations to Lt Worf.
Ensign Mendon: [a little embarrassed] I didn't mean to challenge your authority... I just wanted to impress upon you...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: No need to apologise, Ensign... we should have explained it better at your indoctrination.
[Picard leaves for the turbolift]
Lieutenant Worf: [Worf, who was listening to the whole conversation with increasing irritation sidles over to Mendon] Ensign Mendon... You may impress me.
[Worf returns to the Tactical station, and Mendon looks quite humbled]


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Outrageous Okona (#2.4)" (1988)
Capt. Thadiun Okona: A Klingon Security Officer?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes.
Capt. Thadiun Okona: No wars available, eh?

Lieutenant Worf: [of the Straleb security vessel] Another glob fly.

Lieutenant Worf: Captain! They're now locking lasers on us.
Commander William T. Riker: Lasers?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Lasers can't even penetrate our navigation shields, don't they know that?
Commander William T. Riker: Regulations... do call for yellow alert.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hm... Very old regulation. Well, make it so, Number One. And reduce speed. Drop main shields as well.
Commander William T. Riker: May I ask why, sir?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: In case we decide to surrender to them, Number One.

[Worf finds Okona in deep embrace with a woman in her quarters]
Lieutenant Worf: You will come with me to the main bridge!
Capt. Thadiun Okona: I'm sure it can wait a few minutes?
[continues kissing the woman]
Lieutenant Worf: NOW!
[Okana turns and has a stare-down with Worf]
Lieutenant Worf: [growls] I'd like that! But I have my orders.
Capt. Thadiun Okona: [smugly] Some other time.
[Okana turns to the woman he was kissing]
Capt. Thadiun Okona: Remember what it took to drag me from your arms!

Wesley Crusher: Say goodbye, Data.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Goodbye, Data.
[crew laughs]
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Was that funny?
Wesley Crusher: [laughs]
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Accessing. Ah! Burns and Allen, Roxy Theater, New York City, 1932. It still works.
[pauses]
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Then there was the one about the girl in the nudist colony, that nothing looked good on?
Lieutenant Worf: We're ready to get under way, sir.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Take my Worf, please.
Commander William T. Riker: [to Captain Picard] Warp speed, sir?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Please.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: By Inferno's Light (#5.15)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Worf: First they demand we come out here, then they make us wait.
General Martok: They're worthy fighters; but they have no sense of honor.

Lt. Commander Worf: Is there no Jem'Hadar willing to face me?
Deyos: Fascinating. Even after all he's been through, the Klingon still thirsts for battle. Doesn't he ever tire of it?
Ikat'ika: I never do.
Deyos: You fight because that is what you were designed to do. All that motivates him is some barbaric sense of honor.
Ikat'ika: And that is something you will never understand.

Ikat'ika: Prepare yourself. I've found you a worthy opponent.
Lt. Commander Worf: Where is he?
Ikat'ika: Right in front of you.
[Worf nods]
Ikat'ika: Victory is life!
Lt. Commander Worf: Today is a good day to die.

General Martok: Seven battles, and seven victories! What hero of legend could have done as well?
Lt. Commander Worf: Heroes of legends don't ache so much.

Lt. Commander Worf: Garak - you did well.
Garak: So did you.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cost of Living (#5.20)" (1992)
Counselor Troi: Alexander, this is my mother.
Lwaxana Troi: Alexander? What a wonderful name! You know, I once knew a tall, handsome warrior named Alexander. Oh, he utterly adored me and we went everywhere - simply everywhere. Have you been anywhere yet - Contract? What contract?
Counselor Troi: Between father and son. A fair and balanced way to achieve a mutual sense of order.
Lwaxana Troi: [at Alexander] Well, how ghastly for you. And you are doing this to your own child, Mr. Woof?
Counselor Troi: Mother!
Lieutenant Worf: It is Worf, madam.
Lwaxana Troi: Contracts are usually between people who don't really trust one another. A child who is trusted becomes worthy of that trust.

Lieutenant Worf: The boy is unreasonable.
Lwaxana Troi: Well, of course he's unreasonable, he's a child!

Counselor Troi: What would you like your father to promise, Alexander?
Alexander Rozhenko: No yelling.
Lieutenant Worf: I DO N... - I do not yell.

Lieutenant Worf: A Klingon never breaks his word.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: [in the mud bath] You're just supposed to sit here?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Enemy (#3.7)" (1989)
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Lieutenant - sometimes, the moral obligations of command are less than clear. I have to weigh the good of the many against the needs of the individual, and try to balance them as realistically as possible. God knows, I don't always succeed.
Lieutenant Worf: I have not had cause to complain, Captain.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Oh. Lieutenant, you wouldn't complain even if you had cause.

[Worf has refused to serve as donor for a seriously injured Romulan]
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Lieutenant, I understand your feelings about the Romulans, but this is not the time or the place...
Lieutenant Worf: If you had seen them kill your parents, you would understand, Doctor. It is always the time and place for those feelings!
Doctor Beverly Crusher: *This* Romulan didn't murder your parents. And you are the only one who can save his life.
Lieutenant Worf: Then he will die.

Lieutenant Worf: [on how to deal with the injured Romulan] My Starfleet training tells me one thing. But everything I am tells me another.

Lieutenant Worf: I am asked to give up the very lifeblood of my mother and my father to those who murdered them!
Commander William T. Riker: So you blame all Romulans for that?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes!
Commander William T. Riker: Forever? What if someday, the Federation made peace with the Romulans?
Lieutenant Worf: Impossible.
Commander William T. Riker: That's what your people said a few years ago, about Humans. Think how many died on both sides in that war. Would you and I be here now like this, if we hadn't been able to let go of the anger and the blame? Where does it end, Worf? If that Romulan dies... does his family carry the bitterness on another generation?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Commander, how is it that we were not informed of the presence of the second Romulan on Galondon Core?
Commander Tomalak: A simple misunderstanding, Captain Picard. I was obviously misinformed as to the size of the craft. I assure you, I intended no deception.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Of course not.
Commander Tomalak: You doubt my good faith?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Let's just say my faith would be reinforced by a gesture from you - such as powering down your disruptors.
[Tomalak turns and nods to someone offscreen]
Lieutenant Worf: Disruptors powering down.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Thank you.


Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning (2005) (V)
[subtitled version]
Commander Dwarf: Fleet reporting: practically all light balls expended.
Info: In that case, approach to twinkler range at full shove power. Our losses should not exceed 68.4 percent.
Commander Dwarf: I guess it's a passable day to die.

[subtitled version]
Commander Dwarf: Wars aren't won by avoiding battles.
Keisari James B. Pirk: Enough with your sorry Plingon proverbs.

[subtitled version]
Commander Dwarf: Plingon warriors do not take showers!

[subtitled version]
Commander Dwarf: Tactical is still missing a chair!

Commander Dwarf: Tactical is still missing a chair!

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: All Good Things... (#7.25)" (1994)
[first lines]
Counselor Deanna Troi: [exiting the holodeck] That was an incredible program!
Lieutenant Worf: I am glad you approve. I have always found the Black Sea at night to be a most stimulating experience.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Worf - we were walking barefoot on the beach, with balalaika music in the air, ocean breeze washing over us, stars in the sky, a full moon rising - and the most you can say is "stimulating"?
Lieutenant Worf: It was... *very* stimulating.

[Worf has denied the Pasteur to cross the border into Klingon space, referring to "regulations"]
Picard: Well, I know that I am an old man and I am out of touch. But the Worf that I remember was more concerned with things like honor and loyalty than rules and regulations. But that was a long time ago, and maybe you're not the Worf I once knew.
[Worf curses in Klingon]
Worf: You have always used your knowledge of Klingon honor and tradition to get what you want from me.
Picard: Because it always works, Worf! Your problem is that you really *do* have a sense of honor, and you really *do* care about trust and loyalty. Don't blame me for knowing you so well.

[Worf's last line of the series]
Lieutenant Worf: Agreed.

Lieutenant Worf: [in a poker round] Four hands in a row. How does he do it?
Commander William T. Riker: I cheat.
[Data looks up, suspicious]
Commander William T. Riker: I'm kidding!

[Picard has called for Q]
Lieutenant JG Worf: What is a 'Q'?
Lt. Tasha Yar: It's a letter of the alphabet, as far as I know.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Phantasms (#7.6)" (1993)
Lieutenant Worf: Mmm... Delicious.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: What kind of cake are you eating?
Lieutenant Worf: It is a cellular peptide cake... with mint frosting.

Lieutenant Worf: Ever since you gave Alexander that music program, he's been playing it all night. *Every* night!
Commander William T. Riker: Just wanted to broaden his horizons. Besides, he likes it.
Lieutenant Worf: It is screeching, pounding dissonance. It is not music.
Commander William T. Riker: Worf, It's better than music. It's jazz.

Capt. Picard: Mr. Data, what kind of cake is this?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: It is a cellular peptide cake.
Lieutenant Worf: [with his mouth full] With mint frosting.

Lieutenant Worf: [attempting to take care of Spot] Spot! Come here!

Lt. Cmdr. Data: [asking Worf to take care of Spot] He will need to be fed once a day. He prefers feline supplement number 25.
Lieutenant Worf: I understand.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: And he will require water. And you must provide him with a sandbox - and you must talk to him. Tell him he is a pretty cat, and a good cat...
Lieutenant Worf: I will feed him.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Perhaps that will be enough.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Lower Decks (#7.15)" (1994)
[repeated line]
Lieutenant Worf: Defend yourself!

Sito Jaxa: How am I supposed to defend myself when I can't see a thing?
Lieutenant Worf: Stop making excuses! Replace the blindfold!
Sito Jaxa: No! It's not a fair test.
Lieutenant Worf: Very good, Ensign. You have passed the challenge.

Sito Jaxa: Sir... is there really such a thing as a gik'tal challenge?
Lieutenant Worf: No, there is not. But perhaps next time you are judged unfairly, it will not take so many bruises for you to protest.

Lieutenant Worf: [about Sito's mission] Be certain you understand the risk you are taking. If you are captured...
Sito Jaxa: I'm Bajoran. No one knows better than I do what Cardassians do to their prisoners.

[last lines]
Ben: Excuse me, sir, but I need to move this table.
Lieutenant Worf: What?
Ben: [indicating the table occupied by Lavelle, Taurik and Ogawa] There's an empty seat over there.
Lieutenant Worf: I appreciate what you're trying to do. But it is not appropriate. You were her friends. I was only her commanding officer.
Ben: Sir - I happen to know that she considered you a friend.
[Worf ponders this, then gets up and joins the other friends at their table]


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: What You Leave Behind (#7.25)" (1999)
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You're sure you're not angry?
Lt. Commander Worf: Why should I be angry? I have been asking you to tell the Doctor how you feel about him for the past month.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Well - now that he knows how I feel...?
Lt. Commander Worf: I am happy for you.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: That's a relief.
Lt. Commander Worf: But... I am going to kill him.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You're kidding, right?
Lt. Commander Worf: And Jadzia said I did not have a sense of humor.

Jake Sisko: [discussing O'Brien's move to Earth] Any idea where you're gonna live?
O'Brien: No, Keiko and I're still mulling over a few possibilities.
Worf: Have you ever considered Minsk?
O'Brien: I don't think that's on our list.
Sisko: New Orleans is a gorgeous city.
Kasidy Yates: I've heard great things about Paris.
Worf: Minsk.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Jadzia loved Rio.
Odo: Well, you've certainly got a lot of choices.
O'Brien: Yeah, too many, hm?
Worf: Minsk.

Admiral Ross: Commander, how would you feel about being named Federation Ambassador to Qo'noS?
Lt. Commander Worf: I am not a diplomat.
Martok: And I am not a politician. But sometimes, fate plays cruel tricks on us, Worf.

[Worf's last line of the series]
Lt. Commander Worf: Colonel Kira and Chief O'Brien have completed another scan of the planet. As far as they can tell, he is not there.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Apocalypse Rising (#5.1)" (1996)
Chief O'Brien: So, let me get this straight: all we have to do is get past an enemy fleet, avoid a tachyon detection grid, beam into the middle of Klingon headquarters and avoid the Brotherhood of the Sword long enough to set these things up and activate them in front of Gowron?
Lt. Commander Worf: If we succeed, there will be many songs sung in our honor.
Chief O'Brien: Let's hope we're there to hear them.

[Worf is testing his comrades' Klingon reactions]
Lt. Commander Worf: Are you a Klingon warrior or an Alverian dung beetle?
Odo: [as Kodrak] I really don't see the point.
Lt. Commander Worf: Do not look away from me! I called you a dung beetle.
Odo: I heard you.
Lt. Commander Worf: And what is your response?
Odo: You should have your eyes examined.

[Sisko/Jodmos hits Worf with the back of his hand]
Captain Sisko: [as Jodmos] Are you questioning the validity of my plan?
Lt. Commander Worf: Very convincing, Captain. But was it your intention to challenge me to a battle to the death?
Captain Sisko: [surprised] No, not at all.
Lt. Commander Worf: Then next time, do not strike me with the back of your hand. Use your fist.

Lt. Commander Worf: Getting close to Gowron will not be easy. He is guarded around the clock by the Yan-Isleth.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: The Brotherhood of the Sword.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Take Me Out to the Holosuite (#7.4)" (1998)
[during the baseball game, Odo, as umpire, didn't make a call after a player scored]
Nog: What's wrong?
Chief O'Brien: He didn't touch home, Nog!
Nog: Is that true?
[Odo harrumphs]
Nog: Wha- what do I do?
Worf: Find him and kill him!

Worf: [playing baseball] Death to the opposition!

Worf: We will destroy them.

Captain Sisko: Alright Niners! Let's hear some chatter! Hey batter!
Kasidy Yates: Hey batter batter batter batter batter!
Leeta: Hey batter batter batter batter batter batter!
Worf: Death to the opposition!


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Children of Time (#5.22)" (1997)
Gabriel: Are you the son of Mogh?
Worf: Yes, I am.
Gabriel: Is it true you can kill someone, just by looking at them?
Worf: Only when I am angry.

Brota: We are the sons of Mogh.
Worf: You're my descendants?
Brota: Some by blood, some by choice.

Brota: You said there was an enemy for us to fight.
Worf: They're attempting to plant their fields before the sun sets. Time is their enemy. We should help them defeat it.

Brota: Last year I slew a yar-bear, three meters tall. Your Mek'leth was my only weapon. The beast maimed me, and for a time it seemed I would die from my wounds. Now I wish I had. It would have been a warrior's death.
Parell: He could have taken his place among the honored dead in Sto-vo-kor.
Worf: Perhaps he will yet.
Brota: No. Ceasing to exist because my parents were never born - that is not a death worthy of Sto-vo-kor.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Royale (#2.12)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: What is this place? How did a being like you get here?
Asst. Manager: Why, this is the Royale, of course. And my personal life is really none of your business, thank you.
Commander William T. Riker: What he means is, what planet is this?
Asst. Manager: I beg your pardon?
Commander William T. Riker: This planet, what do you call it?
Asst. Manager: Earth. What do you call it?
Lieutenant Worf: We call it Theta VIII.
Asst. Manager: How charming.

Lieutenant Worf: Seems to be malfunctioning.
[about the 'turbolift' in the Royale, when its doors don't open automatically]

Lt. Commander Data: [examining skeletal remains in hotel bed] Definitely human. Male.
Commander William T. Riker: Looks like the poor devil died in his sleep.
Lieutenant Worf: What a terrible way to die.

Lieutenant Worf: [pauses, then picks up the phone] Yes?
[turns to Riker and Data]
Lieutenant Worf: There's a female voice asking if we want room service.
Lt. Commander Data: I believe she's asking if we want the room cleaned.
Commander William T. Riker: Tell her no.
Lieutenant Worf: [turns to phone] No.
[pauses, then hangs up slowly]
Commander William T. Riker: What did she say?
Lieutenant Worf: She said the kitchen will be open 24 hours a day if we change our minds.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Bar Association (#4.15)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: We are Starfleet officers; and Starfleet officers do not brawl with each other.
Chief O'Brien: It wasn't much of a brawl really - I grabbed you, you shoved me, and Julian was tossed over a table...

Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Mr. Worf, you're in love - with the Defiant.
Lt. Commander Worf: You exaggerate - as usual.

[Worf has decided to move his quarters to the Defiant]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You know, Worf, in the end, living on the Defiant isn't going to change anything. You're still going to have to get used to life on the station.
Lt. Commander Worf: I am not sure I agree.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Sooner or later, you're going to have to adapt.
Lt. Commander Worf: Perhaps in the end, it'll be all of you that have to adapt to me.

[Worf hauls a criminal into Odo's office]
Lt. Commander Worf: This p'tak just robbed my quarters.
Odo: [to deputy] Take him to a holding cell.
[the deputy takes the thief away]
Odo: I'll need a statement.
Lt. Commander Worf: And you will have one. But I want to know why such a security breach was allowed to occur in the first place.
Odo: Unfortunately, these things happen.
Lt. Commander Worf: They did not happen on the Enterprise.
Odo: Really? Now let me see.
[consults a PADD]
Odo: Stardate 46235.7: Ferengi privateers led by DaiMon Lurin boarded and seized control of the Enterprise using two salvaged Klingon Birds-of-Prey. Stardate 45349.1: Berlinghoff Rasmussen, a petty criminal impersonating a scientist, committed numerous acts of theft against the crew of the Enterprise. Shall I continue?
Lt. Commander Worf: That will not be necessary.
Odo: I know these incidents are the exception rather than the rule, but if security breaches like these could happen on the flagship of the Federation, imagine the difficulty of maintaining security at an open port such as DS9.
Lt. Commander Worf: I understand. It is just that I find it irritating.
Odo: So do I, but I'm afraid you're just going to have to get used to it.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Power Play (#5.15)" (1992)
Lieutenant Worf: Spiritual possessions of this sort have been reported throughout Klingon history. It is called jat'yIn - the taking of the living by the dead.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Human history is full of many similar legends.
Lieutenant Worf: Then you believe they may be telling the truth?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Not for one moment.
Lieutenant Worf: Sir, they know much about the Essex. If it *is* the spirit of Captain Shumar...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Then he should be behaving very much better, don't you think?

Data/"Mullen": Are you afraid?
Lieutenant Worf: I have no fear of death.
Data/"Mullen": And I have no fear of killing you!

[the spirits of the convicts are caught in a containment field]
Troi/"Shumar": Nooo!
Troi/"Shumar": [threatens Picard with her phaser] Let them go or you will all die!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Your threats are meaningless now.
O'Brien/"Kelly": We are still in control of these three bodies. We will not let them go.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Have you prepared to sacrifice the lives of these others? They'll all die when the cargo bay hatch is blown.
Data/"Mullen": You will die too, Picard!
Keiko O'Brien: I would die to save the life of my child.
Lieutenant Worf: To die defending one's ship is the hope of every Klingon.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: If you each know the officers you inhabit, then you know they're equally ready to give their lives for this ship. Free them now - and I will return you to the moon's surface.
[after a long pause, Troi slowly backs off]
Troi/"Shumar": I advise you, Picard, not to pass our way again.

Lt. Commander Data: Lieutenant, I must apologize for my inadvertent misconduct toward you.
Lieutenant Worf: No apology necessary.
Lt. Commander Data: Your restraint was most remarkable.
Lieutenant Worf: You have no idea.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Coming of Age (#1.18)" (1988)
Lieutenant Worf: Thinking about what you can't control only wastes energy, and creates its own enemy.

Lieutenant Worf: It is very difficult for me to depend on anyone for anything - but especially for my life.
Wesley Crusher: But on the Enterprise, you do that every day. Everyone depends on everyone else to protect them.
Lieutenant Worf: Yes.
Wesley Crusher: So you overcame it?
Lieutenant Worf: No. It is still my enemy.

Wesley Crusher: I thought there was nothing that could frighten a Klingon warrior.
Lieutenant Worf: Only fools have no fear.

Lt. Cmdr. Dexter Remmick: You don't like me very much, do you?
Lieutenant Worf: Is it required - sir?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Birthright: Part 1 (#6.16)" (1993)
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Worf... I don't see how you can eat that stuff. It tastes like... liquid polymer.
Lieutenant Worf: Delicious!

Lieutenant Worf: [to Data, but really more to himself] In the Klingon MajQa ritual, there is nothing more important than receiving a revelation about your father. Your father is a part of you. Always. Learning about him teaches you about yourself. That is why no matter... where he is or what he has done... you must find him!

[Troi walks in on Worf who has just smashed his glass table during an agitated mok'bara exercise]
Counselor Deanna Troi: Did the table do something wrong?
Lieutenant Worf: No.
Counselor Deanna Troi: I'm glad you weren't that hard on Ensign Lopez.
Lieutenant Worf: He made a mistake. The duty roster was inaccurate.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Would you like to talk about what's bothering you, or would you like to break some more furniture?

L'Kor: You should not have come here, Worf.
Lieutenant Worf: I do not understand.
L'Kor: You should not have come.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cause and Effect (#5.18)" (1992)
Commander William T. Riker: Sometimes I wonder if he's stacking the deck.
Lt. Commander Data: I assure you, Commander, the cards are sufficiently randomized.
Lieutenant Worf: I hope so.

Lieutenant Worf: [at the poker table] I am experiencing... nIb'poH - the feeling I have done this before.
Commander William T. Riker: Yes, last Tuesday night.
Lieutenant Worf: That's not what I mean.

Lieutenant Worf: It is a highly localized distortion of the space-time continuum.

[the Enterprise is faced with a cloud-like distortion]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Back us off, Ensign. Nice and slow.
Ensign Ro Laren: Aye, sir. Captain, maneuvering thrusters are not responding.
Lt. Commander Data: The distortion field is fluctuating.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: All main systems just went down. Power levels are dropping rapidly.
Commander William T. Riker: Red alert.
Lt. Commander Data: There is an energy build-up in the distortion field.
Counselor Deanna Troi: We have to get out of here, now.
Lt. Commander Data: Captain, something is emerging.
[another starship is coming out of the cloud]
Commander William T. Riker: Shields up. Evasive maneuvers.
Lieutenant Worf: Shields inoperative.
Ensign Ro Laren: The helm is not responding.
Lt. Commander Data: The vessel is on a collision course. Impact in 36 seconds.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Hail them.
Lieutenant Worf: No response.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Suggestions?
Commander William T. Riker: Decompress main shuttlebay. The explosive reaction may blow us out of the way.
Lt. Commander Data: Captain, I suggest we use the tractor beam to alter the other ship's trajectory.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Make it so, Mr. Worf.
Lieutenant Worf: Engaging tractor beam.
[the two ships collide]


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Bonding (#3.5)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: I cannot seek revenge against an enemy who's turned to dust centuries ago. Her death was senseless! The last victim of a forgotten war!

Lieutenant Worf: [to Jeremy] Join me in the R'uustai - the Bonding. You will become part of my family now and for all time. We will be brothers.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: SoS jIH batlh SoH.
Jeremy Aster: What does that mean?
Lieutenant Worf: It honors the memory of our mothers. We have bonded. And our families are stronger.
Jeremy Aster: SoS jIH batlh SoH.

Lieutenant Worf: The Marla Aster I knew and honored is not in this room, nor does she await you on the planet. She now only lives here...
[he touches his chest, then Jeremy's]
Lieutenant Worf: ...and here.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Time's Orphan (#6.24)" (1998)
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: By the way, what does 'gung-gung-gung' mean?
Lt. Commander Worf: Why do you ask?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Well, it was the strangest thing. I was taking Yoshi home, and he kept shaking his rattle saying "Gung-gung-gung!"
Lt. Commander Worf: He did?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: He seemed to get a big kick out of it. So what does it mean?
Lt. Commander Worf: That is between Yoshi and me.

Lt. Commander Worf: I am a Klingon warrior, and a Starfleet officer. I've piloted starships through Dominion minefields; I've stood in battle against Kelvans twice my size; I courted and won the heart of the magnificent Jadzia Dax. If I can do these things, I can make this child go to sleep!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Talk about losing perspective.

[Worf has been instructing Yoshi in hehh-duHpp]
Lt. Commander Worf: That's a Klingon exercise designed to teach children hand-eye coordination, so they will grow up to become warriors.
Doctor Bashir: Oh, I get it, the rattle is like, er, the baby's first bat'leth kind of thing.
Chief O'Brien: How'd he do?
Lt. Commander Worf: Uh, he acquitted himself well.
Chief O'Brien: Thanks for watching him.
[Worf is about to leave]
Doctor Bashir: Oh, Worf, um, you might want to leave the rattle, just in case Yoshi wants to practice his hehh-duHpping.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Drumhead (#4.21)" (1991)
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The Seventh Guarantee is one of the most important rights granted by the Federation. We cannot take a fundamental principle of the Constitution and turn it against a citizen.
Lieutenant Worf: Sir, the Federation *does* have enemies. We *must* seek them out!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Oh, yes. That's how it starts. But the road from legitimate suspicion to rampant paranoia is very much shorter than we think. Something is wrong here, Mister Worf. I don't like what we have become.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is not unlike a... a drumhead trial.
Lieutenant Worf: I do not understand.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: 500 years ago, military officers would upend a drum on the battlefield. They'd sit at it and dispense summary justice. Decisions were quick, punishments severe; appeals denied. Those who came to a drumhead were doomed.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: [referring to Admiral Satie] I believed her. I, I helped her. I did not see what she was.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mister Worf, villains who twirl their moustaches are easy to spot. Those who clothe themselves in good deeds are well camouflaged.
Lieutenant Worf: I think... after yesterday, people will not be so ready to trust her.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Maybe. But she, or someone like her, will always be with us, waiting for the right climate in which to flourish, spreading fear in the name of righteousness. Vigilance, Mister Worf - that is the price we have to continually pay.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Child (#2.1)" (1988)
Lieutenant Worf: [anticipating Picard to give Dr. Pulaski a telling-off] Not the best way to meet your new captain.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Acting Ensign Wesley Crusher has expressed his desire to remain on the Enterprise.
Commander William T. Riker: I see. And, how did you respond?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I haven't yet, Number One, I didn't feel it was my decision alone. His remaining, will have effects on all of us.
Commander William T. Riker: Good point, with his mother gone, who will see to his studies?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: That's true. Of course, that responsibility would fall to Commander Data.
Commander William T. Riker: And, who will tuck him in at night?
Wesley Crusher: [embarrassed] Come on, Commander!
Lieutenant Worf: [somewhat reluctant] I will accept that responsibility.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, we know he'll get his sleep
[looks to Worf and smiles]
Counselor Deanna Troi: .
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [looks to Riker, put his hand on his chin in thought] You know, Number One? It seems to me that you would be best suited for these responsibilities. Are you willing to serve?
Commander William T. Riker: Difficult decision.
[Riker looks to Wesley, who looks back in quiet anticipation. Riker grins]
Commander William T. Riker: Yes, I can do that.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [looks to Wesley] Very well, Mr. Crusher, contact your mother at Starfleet Medical, give her my regards, and tell her that you have my permission to remain on the Enterprise. But
[points to Wesley]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I will abide by her wishes.
Wesley Crusher: [grins] Yes, Sir! Thank you, Sir! I know she'll agree!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Now, do you have course and speed laid in?
Wesley Crusher: Yes Sir, they are!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Very well, Mr. Crusher. Engage.
[Wesley grins, and sets the Enterprise's next course]

Commander William T. Riker: I don't mean to be indelicate,
[turns to Troi]
Commander William T. Riker: but who's the father?
Counselor Deanna Troi: Last night, *while I slept*, something, that I can only describe as a presence, entered my body.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: A life form of unknown origin and intent, is *breeding*, right now, inside of Counselor Troi. Our purpose here today is determine what course of action we need to take.
Lieutenant Worf: The decision is clear. The pregnancy must be terminated to protect the ship.
Commander William T. Riker: [as the bridge crew is discussing the issue, Troi hears a heartbeat within her mind, and looks down at her stomach, then back up to the conference room screen which shows a gestating fetus. The crew's voices are muffled, but can still be clearly heard as Troi is focusing on the baby growing inside her] This situation presents a danger to us and the counselor. It's an invasion, of what, I don't know.
Lt. Commander Data: Captain, this is a life form. Denying it the right to survive, takes away our opportunity to study it.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Where Silence Has Lease (#2.2)" (1988)
[Riker and Worf have run one of Worf's rigorous calisthenics programs on the holodeck]
Commander William T. Riker: You do this every day?
Lieutenant Worf: No, Commander. Usually, my calisthenics are more... intense. But those sessions are too personal to be shared.
Commander William T. Riker: I'll bet they are.

[Worf is faced with a duplicated bridge and Riker on the "USS Yamato"]
Lieutenant Worf: What's going on? A ship has one bridge. One bridge! One Riker, one bridge!

Lieutenant Worf: [to himself] At ease, Lieutenant, at ease.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Liaisons (#7.2)" (1993)
Lt. Cmdr. Data: I have heard that in moments of diplomatic tension, it is often helpful to find elements of commonality.
Lieutenant Worf: Ambassador Byleth is... demanding, temperamental and rude!
Lt. Cmdr. Data: You share all of those qualities in abundance. Perhaps you should try to build on your similarities!

[Worf is getting ready for a diplomatic reception]
Lieutenant Worf: I do not see why it is necessary to wear these... ridiculous uniforms.
Commander William T. Riker: Protocol.
Lieutenant Worf: They look like dresses.
Commander William T. Riker: That is an incredibly outmoded and sexist attitude! I'm surprised at you. - Besides, you look good in a dress.

[Worf has accused Ambassador Byleth of cheating at poker]
Ambassador Byleth: Even if I were cheating, how would a plodding animal like you know it?
Lieutenant Worf: You are an insulting, pompous fool! And if you were not an ambassador, I would disembowel you right here!
Ambassador Byleth: Do not let my title inhibit you, Klingon!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Justice (#1.7)" (1987)
Lieutenant Worf: Nice planet.

Commander William T. Riker: When in Rome, eh?
Lieutenant Worf: When where, sir?

Lieutenant Worf: I am not concerned with pleasure, Commander. I am a warrior.
Commander William T. Riker: Even Klingons need love now and then.
Lieutenant Worf: For what we consider love, sir, I would need a Klingon woman.
Commander William T. Riker: What about plain old basic sex? You must have some need for that.
Lieutenant Worf: Of course. But with the females available to me, sir - Earth females - I must restrain myself too much. They are quite fragile, sir.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Contagion (#2.11)" (1989)
[Geordi is thrown onto the bridge from the turbolift. Riker helps him up]
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: Destroy the probe, sir, quickly!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Worf, target phasers!
Lieutenant Worf: Phasers locked on target.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Fire!
[the probe is destroyed]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Welcome to the bridge, Mr. La Forge.

Lieutenant Worf: Captain - you... will be killed.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I'll go through the gate.
Lieutenant Worf: But where will you end up?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Very shortly, anywhere will be preferable to this room.

Lieutenant Worf: [observing an ever-changing oblong] These scenes could be holographic images.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Be careful.
[Data approaches the oblong and puts his hand through]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data! That was very foolish.
Lt. Commander Data: But we have established that this is not a holograph.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Shadows and Symbols (#7.2)" (1998)
Quark: We're risking our lives to help Jadzia get into Sto-vo-kor. The very least Worf could do is show us some appreciation. Is it so hard to say 'thank you'?
Doctor Bashir: Thank you.
Quark: Nice try, Doctor, but I wanna hear it from him.
Chief O'Brien: Don't do this, Quark.
Quark: Do what? All I'm asking for is two little words.
Lt. Commander Worf: Be quiet!
Quark: That's two words all right. Just not the two I was hoping for.

Lt. Commander Worf: We are going to fly toward the molten heart of the sun, so close, that our ship will glow like a flaming comet.
Doctor Bashir: Well, hopefully not *that* close.

[last lines]
Ensign Ezri Dax: [arriving on DS9] Odo! Nerys, Julian, it's so good to see you. Worf, we need to talk!
Doctor Bashir: Who's that?
Jake Sisko: It's Dax.
Lt. Commander Worf: Dax?
Jake Sisko: That's right. Ezri Dax. Incredible, isn't it?
Lt. Commander Worf: It cannot be.
Quark: She's so much... shorter!
Odo: Just when you thought things couldn't get more interesting...


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Skin of Evil (#1.22)" (1988)
Lieutenant Worf: You are favored in the ship's pool.
Lt. Tasha Yar: You bet on me?
Lieutenant Worf: A sure thing.

Capt. Picard: Lieutenant Worf, you're now Acting Chief of Security.
Lieutenant Worf: I will do my best, sir.

Lieutenant Worf: The object here is not to engage the creature in battle. The goal is the safe return of Counselor Troi and Lieutenant Prieto. I can best accomplish this at the tactical station.
[Worf's first decision as Security Chief]


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint (#1.1)" (1987)
[Worf's first line]
Lieutenant Worf: Shields and deflectors up, sir!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Now hear this: printout message, urgent, all stations on all decks. Prepare for emergency saucer sep. You will command the saucer section, Lieutenant.
Lieutenant Worf: I'm a Klingon, sir. For me to seek escape when my Captain goes into battle...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: You are a Starfleet officer, Lieutenant!
Lieutenant Worf: Aye, sir.

Lieutenant Worf: And now a personal request, sir. Permission to clean up the bridge.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Eye of the Beholder (#7.18)" (1994)
Lieutenant Worf: I would never want to come between you and someone you are involved with, or had ever been involved with.
Commander William T. Riker: Is there someone in particular that you're talking about?
Lieutenant Worf: No. - Is there someone in particular you would rather I not be involved with?
Commander William T. Riker: Mr. Worf, you sound like a man who's asking his friend if he can start dating his sister.

Lieutenant Worf: We have played poker many times. I have never known you to bluff.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, it wouldn't be much of a bluff if you knew, would it?

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: Counselor... When I pulled you from the plasma stream, you seemed... surprised I was alive.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, actually - in my hallucination, you were killed.
Lieutenant Worf: May I ask by whom?
Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, you know what they say, Mr. Worf: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned."


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Angel One (#1.13)" (1988)
Lieutenant Worf: I think I may sneeze.
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: A Klingon sneeze?
Lieutenant Worf: Only kind I know.

Lieutenant Worf: Engineering reports computer ma... a... ATCHOO! I'm sorry - I'm getting sick.
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: I'm sure half the ship knows that by now.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: What is that smell?
Lieutenant Worf: Hm, yes - slightly reminiscent of night-blooming throgni, Captain. From home. Quite stimulating, wouldn't you say?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: No!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Matter of Time (#5.9)" (1991)
[Worf has hailed a small vessel drifting in space]
Lieutenant Worf: That's odd...
Commander William T. Riker: What's odd?
Lieutenant Worf: We've received a response, but...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Yes, Mr. Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: They want you to move over, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Reply that the Enterprise isn't going anywhere, Lieutenant.
Lieutenant Worf: Not the Enterprise, Captain. *You*.

Lieutenant Worf: I hate questionnaires.

Lieutenant Worf: [responding to an earlier question of Rasmussen] Phasers.
Rasmussen: Beg your pardon?
Lieutenant Worf: There were no phasers in the 22nd century.
Rasmussen: Ah, you see, Doctor? Our Klingon friend is a perfect example of what I was trying to tell you: he views history through the eyes of a hunter, a warrior. His passion lies in the perfection of the tools of violence. How delightfully primitive!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Last Outpost (#1.4)" (1987)
Lieutenant Worf: Uncle who?

Lieutenant Worf: Immobilized by the damn Ferengi!

Lieutenant Worf: Pygmy cretins!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Manhunt (#2.19)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: [of the fish-like Antedeans] What a handsome race.

Lwaxana Troi: Now, that's more like it. Your thoughts, they're primal, savage. I like that in a man.
Lieutenant Worf: I am not a man!

Lieutenant Worf: Captain, we are being hailed by a small transport vessel just coming into range.
Counselor Troi: [horrified] Oh, my god.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: What's the problem?
Counselor Troi: What's she doing here?
Wesley Crusher: On screen, captain.
Transporter Pilot: Starship Enterprise, come in.
Commander William T. Riker: We have you on viewer, pilot.
Transporter Pilot: Enterprise, I have a passenger, a VIP passenger who I more...
Lwaxana Troi: [shoving the pilot aside] Oh, let me talk to them. I'm sure I'm more articulate than that.
Counselor Troi: Mother.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hide and Q (#1.9)" (1987)
[Worf moves in on Q]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: No, Lieutenant Worf! You'll make no move against him unless I order it.
Q: Pity! You might have learned an interesting lesson, Macrohead - with a microbrain!
Lieutenant Worf: Grrr...

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Don't you see, Riker? He's nothing but a flim-flam man. He's been that ever since we met him at Farpoint!
Lieutenant Worf: "Flim-flam"?

[Worf has been "given" a Klingon woman, who is snarling at him]
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: Worf, is this your idea of sex?
Lieutenant Worf: This *is* sex. But I have no place for it in my life now!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Qpid (#4.20)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: Sir, I protest. I am *not* a merry man!

Lieutenant Worf: [of Vash] Nice legs... For a human.

Lieutenant Worf: Sorry.
[after smashing Alan-a-Dale's alias Geordi's mandolin against a tree]


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Ship (#5.2)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: That is no way for anyone to die.
Chief O'Brien: I told you, he is not going to die.
Lt. Commander Worf: It is only a matter of time.
Chief O'Brien: So we should just kill him, right?
Lt. Commander Worf: If you truly are his friend, you would consider that option. It would be a more honorable death than the one he's enduring.
Chief O'Brien: I'm not some bloodthirsty Klingon looking for an excuse to murder my friend.
Lt. Commander Worf: No. You're just another weak Human afraid to face death!

[the Jem'Hadar are shelling the area around the ship, rattling the Starfleet crew inside]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You'd think they'd be tired of playing this game with us by now!
Lt. Commander Worf: I have a game I would like to play with them, if only I could leave this prison and meet them face to face on a field of battle!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Right now, that doesn't sound like a bad idea.

[last lines]
[Worf compares O'Brien's vigil at Muñiz's casket with a Klingon tradition]
Lt. Commander Worf: When a warrior dies in battle, his comrades stay with the body to keep away predators. That allows the spirit to leave the body when it is time to make the long journey to Sto-vo-kor.
Chief O'Brien: It's a fine tradition.
[Worf sits down by Muñiz's casket, beside O'Brien]
Chief O'Brien: What're you doing?
Lt. Commander Worf: We will both keep the predators away.
Chief O'Brien: I'm sure Quique would like that.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Changing Face of Evil (#7.20)" (1999)
[On the Defiant, the crew is going through the pre-flight procedure]
Nog: This is bad, very bad.
Colonel Kira: You say that every time we take the Defiant into battle.
Nog: Impulse manifold purged and clear. - If we lose the Chin'toka system, we lose our only foothold in the Dominion territory. I think that qualifies as bad.
Colonel Kira: Oh, we haven't lost it yet. - Initiating impulse pre-start sequence.
Nog: Microfusion generators online. - But the Breen, they seem unstoppable. First Earth, now Chin'toka?
Lt. Commander Worf: Ensign, no one is unstoppable. - Collimate the nadion emitters.
Nog: Collimation sequence in progress.
[Bashir and O'Brien enter the bridge]
Doctor Bashir: What more can I say, Miles, but 'I'm sorry'?
Chief O'Brien: Dilithium matrix is aligned and calibrated. - Just be a bit more careful, that's all I ask.
Colonel Kira: Opening antimatter injector ports. - Trouble in paradise?
Doctor Bashir: It was nothing. - Emergency life support and damage control systems standing by.
Chief O'Brien: I wouldn't call it nothing.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Autonomous guidance system initialized and active.
Chief O'Brien: He lost Travis.
Colonel Kira: Hm - sounds serious. - Verify astrometric database.
Doctor Bashir: Miles built this Alamo model, replete with small figures. Quite spectacular, actually. - Data sets loaded and verified. - Anyway, he was showing it to me in Quark's when we - rather I - accidentally misplaced Colonel Travis.
Nog: Phaser safeties engaged. - Can't you make another one?
Chief O'Brien: What, so he can lose it again? - Field stabilizers online.
Colonel Kira: [playfully] Well, that's what happens when you share your toys. - Synchronizing warp plasma flow...
Chief O'Brien: It's not a toy! It's a model, built to scale.
Doctor Bashir: He really did a fantastic job.
Chief O'Brien: Nacelles holding at pre-warp threshold.
Doctor Bashir: Miles, look...

Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You're a good friend, Worf.
Lt. Commander Worf: I know.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Price (#3.8)" (1989)
DaiMon Goss: My name's DaiMon Goss, and these are my counsels Kol and Doctor Arridor. We'll need chairs.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I'm Captain Picard of the Enterprise; I am serving as host for these proceedings.
DaiMon Goss: Good. Then see to it we get some chairs.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Let me explain...
DaiMon Goss: Fine, fine, just have your Klingon servant get us some chairs!
Lieutenant Worf: I'm in charge of security!
DaiMon Goss: Then who gets the chairs?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: DaiMon, due to the delicate nature of these negotiations, all parties have agreed that one representative will suffice. Now, I will be happy to provide your consuls with accommodations, and you... may have *my* chair.

Lieutenant Worf: Captain, DaiMon Goss is demanding to know where his men are.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Advise him to set his coordinates for the Delta Quadrant. He may run into them in... 80 years or so.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: His Way (#6.20)" (1998)
Vic Fontaine: If you're gonna work Vegas in the '60s, you better know the score. Otherwise you're gonna look like a Clyde.
Major Kira: A Clyde?
Vic Fontaine: A Harvey, you know?
Lt. Commander Worf: Harvey?
Vic Fontaine: A square. You know what a square is, right?
Chief O'Brien: It's one side of a cube.
Vic Fontaine: Well, I guess that answers my question.

Lt. Commander Worf: I still prefer Klingon operas.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Tears of the Prophets (#6.26)" (1998)
[Worf and Dax return from the holo-suite]
Doctor Bashir: You were supposed to be up there exercising. I don't see any sweat. Where are all the bruises, the... the... the broken bones, the blood?
Lt. Commander Worf: We were talking.
Quark: For an hour and 45 minutes?
Lt. Commander Worf: It is a private matter.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: We're thinking about having a baby!
Lt. Commander Worf: It *was* a private matter.

[Dax and Worf, who is preparing to go into battle, are talking about their plans to have a baby]
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Just remember when you get back: we have a lot of work to do.
Lt. Commander Worf: I don't consider that 'work'.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Vengeance Factor (#3.9)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: [to Acamarians] Your ambushes would be more successful if you bathed more often!

[Chorgan's ship fires on the Enterprise]
Lieutenant Worf: Shield holding.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, contact Chorgan, tell him Brull has brought us to talk...
[the ship rocks again]
Lieutenant Worf: Chorgan is not responding.
[the ship rocks again]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, can we knock out their shields without seriously damaging their ship?
Lieutenant Worf: I believe we can, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Prepare phasers and open a channel.
Lieutenant Worf: Phasers locked, channel open.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Chorgan, this is Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Enterpr-
[the ship rocks yet again]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: All right... let's focus their attention. Mr. Worf, fire phasers.
[the Enterprise fires]
Lieutenant Worf: Their forward shields are inoperative.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Well done, Lieutenant.
Lieutenant Worf: We are being hailed, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: That's better.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Where No One Has Gone Before (#1.5)" (1987)
[a boar-like creature appears on the bridge]
Lieutenant Tasha Yar: What is it?
Lieutenant Worf: A Klingon targ! My pet... from home! But when I was a child...
Lieutenant Tasha Yar: You're telling me it's a kitty-cat?

Lieutenant Worf: Captain, can you allow a man who's made one mistake back into a position where he may make another?


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Rapture (#5.10)" (1996)
Quark: It's all about foot traffic. The more people come in, the more they drink, the more they drink, the more they talk, the more they talk, the more they let slip things that I shouldn't know, and that, oh, that always leads to latinum.
Lt. Commander Worf: Perhaps so, but there is one problem.
Quark: What's that?
Lt. Commander Worf: There's an ancient Klingon proverb that says, "You cannot loosen a man's tongue with root beer."

Major Kira: I know you're worried. But the Prophets are leading the Emissary on this path for a reason.
Lt. Commander Worf: Do not attempt to convince them, Major. They cannot understand.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Since when did you believe in the Prophets?
Lt. Commander Worf: What I believe in... is faith. Without it there can be no victory. If the Captain's faith is strong, he will prevail.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: That's not much to bet his life on.
Major Kira: You're wrong. It's everything.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Second Chances (#6.24)" (1993)
Lt. Commander Data: If you met a double of yourself, would you have difficulty interacting with him?
Lieutenant Worf: I think so.
Lt. Commander Data: Why?
Lieutenant Worf: I am not easy to get along with.

Lt. Commander Data: I have found that humans value their uniqueness - that sense that they are different from everyone else. The existence of a double would preclude that feeling. Could that be the source of the friction?
Lieutenant Worf: Or perhaps it is more a matter of seeing something in your double, something you do not like in yourself.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Schizoid Man (#2.6)" (1989)
Kareen Brianon: Excuse me, sir - are you a Romulan?
Lieutenant Worf: [snarling] Hardly!

Counselor Deanna Troi: [after a near-warp transport] This might sound crazy, but for a moment, I thought I was stuck in that wall.
Lieutenant Worf: For a moment, you were.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Survivors (#3.3)" (1989)
[Picard and Worf are invited to tea in the Uxbridges' house]
Rishon Uxbridge: Well, what do you think, Mr. Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: Good tea. Nice house.

Lieutenant Worf: Sir - may I say your attempt to hold the away team at bay with a non-functioning weapon was an act of unmitigated gall.
Kevin Uxbridge: Didn't fool you, huh?
Lieutenant Worf: I admire gall.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Best of Both Worlds: Part 2 (#4.1)" (1990)
Locutus: Worf - Klingon species. A warrior race. You, too, will be assimilated.
Lieutenant Worf: The Klingon Empire will never yield!
Locutus: Why do you resist? We only wish to raise quality of life, for all species.
Lieutenant Worf: I like my species the way it is!

Lieutenant Worf: The Borg have neither honor nor courage. *That* is our greatest advantage.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 'Til Death Do Us Part (#7.18)" (1999)
[Ezri tells Worf about a dream where she is chased by a Breen]
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Anyway, I got away from him; but then there was nowhere to run. And then, just when I thought he was about to kill me, he reached up and took off his helmet...
Lt. Commander Worf: And?
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: And... it was Julian.
Lt. Commander Worf: Dr. Bashir?
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Isn't that strange? I wonder what it meant.
Lt. Commander Worf: Dr. Bashir is a Breen.

Lieutenant Ezri Dax: I wonder what the Breen look like under those helmets.
Lt. Commander Worf: They say no one has ever seen one and lived to speak of it.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Maybe they're all furry. It's supposed to be very cold on Breen.
Lt. Commander Worf: One thing is certain...
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: They're horrible cooks?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Conspiracy (#1.24)" (1988)
Counselor Deanna Troi: Have you ever been for a real moonlight swim?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: One can swim in moonlight?
Counselor Deanna Troi: How about you, Mr. Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: [shakes his head] Swimming is too much like... bathing.

[La Forge is staggering and groaning]
Lieutenant Worf: Are you all right?
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: If I could see, I'd be seeing stars.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Redemption II (#5.1)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: You drink with our enemies?
Kurn: How many are Gowron's men? How many are Duras'? Does it matter? When we meet in battle, we will fight to the death, but here, here we're all warriors, all Klingons.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: Request permission to return to duty, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Granted.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Best of Both Worlds: Part 1 (#3.26)" (1990)
[after an attempt to rescue Picard has failed]
Commander William T. Riker: The Captain?
Lt. Commander Data: We were unable to retrieve him, sir. The Captain has been altered by the Borg.
Commander William T. Riker: Altered?
Lieutenant Worf: He IS a Borg.

[after the Borg have abducted Picard]
Lieutenant Worf: Sir, the coordinates they have set - they're on a direct course to sector 001. The Terran system.
Commander William T. Riker: Earth.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Half a Life (#4.22)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: It is Worf, madam, not Woof!

Lieutenant Worf: Mrs. Troi... I must protest your unauthorized presence on the bridge!
Lwaxana Troi: [pointing to tactical console] What does that little one do Mr. Woof?
Lieutenant Worf: Please Madame! That's is a torpedo launch initiator and it's - it is Worf madame, not Woof.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Penumbra (#7.17)" (1999)
[Dax has rescued Worf out of the Badlands]
Lt. Commander Worf: Why would Captain Sisko risk sending a runabout to look for me?
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: He didn't. I came without his permission.
[Worf looks at her stunned and incredulous]
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You're a fellow officer. I would've done the same for Kira or Julian.
Lt. Commander Worf: Of course.

Lt. Commander Worf: I killed it, and now I'm going to eat it.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Neutral Zone (#1.25)" (1988)
Lieutenant Worf: Captain, these are Romulans. They are without honor. They killed my parents in an attack on Khitomer when they were supposed to be our allies. They believe Humans and Klingons are a waste of skin!

Lieutenant Worf: What gives them the right to enter Federation space?
Commander Tebok: Silence your dog, Captain!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Lt. Worf's question is valid.
Subcommander Thei: To even ask such a question implies that we need permission. We do not.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: One Little Ship (#6.14)" (1998)
Lt. Commander Worf: This is the story of a little ship, that took a little trip...

Lt. Commander Worf: It is an ancient Klingon tradition to commemorate an important event with a poem. Jadzia asked me to compose one for this occasion.
Captain Sisko: Well, what have you got so far?
[Worf is about to answer when Nog returns their attention to the crew in the runabout]
Nog: They've penetrated the accretion disk!
Major Kira: [aside, to Sisko] Now is it my imagination, or did the kid just cover for him?
Captain Sisko: This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Hippocratic Oath (#4.3)" (1995)
Lt. Commander Worf: [on Regana Tosh] That man arrived on the station this afternoon and came directly here. I believe the Ferengi bartender is plotting something with him.
Major Kira: I wouldn't be surprised. Quark's always up to something.
Lt. Commander Worf: If he is a known criminal, why does your Security Chief not do anything about him?
Major Kira: Odo keeps him in check.
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes - but not in prison.

Captain Sisko: Starfleet officers often have trouble learning the unofficial rules of the station. There's no manual to study. You have to learn things as you go. A little different than... life on a starship.
Lt. Commander Worf: When I served aboard the Enterprise, I always knew who were my allies, and who were my enemies.
Captain Sisko: Let's just say, DS9 has more shades of gray. And Quark definitely is a shade of... gray. He has his own set of rules, and he follows them diligently. Once you understand them, you understand Quark. I'd say that's true for... everyone here.
[he offers Worf a glass of raktajino]
Captain Sisko: You'll fit in, Commander. Just give it time.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Field of Fire (#7.13)" (1999)
[Dax is investigating the murders on the station]
Lt. Commander Worf: I am certain that you will do whatever is necessary to complete your task.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: And how do you know that?
Lt. Commander Worf: You're Dax. It is your way.

Lt. Commander Worf: It is dangerous for you to be wandering the Promenade alone.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You were worried about me?
Lt. Commander Worf: There is a killer on the station. You have no right to endanger yourself this way!
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: You *were* worried about me. Thank you, Worf, that's... sweet.
Lt. Commander Worf: You are a fellow officer. I would have the same concern for Chief O'Brien... or Dr. Bashir.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: Of course! I didn't mean to imply otherwise.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Trials and Tribble-ations (#5.6)" (1996)
Doctor Bashir: [about the appearance of early Klingons] Those are Klingons?
Odo: Mister Worf?
Worf: They are Klingons, and it is a long story.
O'Brien: What happened? Some kind genetic engineering?
Doctor Bashir: A viral mutation?
Worf: We do not discuss it with outsiders.

Worf: Where did you get that... 'thing'?
Odo: From a man named Cyrano Jones. He told me tribbles like everyone. This one doesn't seem to like you.
Worf: [shouting] The feeling's...
Worf: [composing himself; softer] ... is mutual. They are detestable creatures!
Odo: Hm... interesting. It's been my observation that most humanoids love soft furry animals; especially if they make pleasing sounds...


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Starship Mine (#6.18)" (1993)
Lieutenant Worf: Captain! Request permission to be excused from Commander Hutchinson's reception.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Permission granted... I wish I could excuse myself as well.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Er, Captain, permission to be...
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. La Forge, I cannot excuse my entire senior staff! Mr. Worf beat you to it.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: Captain - you keep a saddle on board?
Commander William T. Riker: Mr. Worf, I'm surprised at you.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Anyone who is an experienced rider naturally has his own saddle.
Counselor Deanna Troi: It's perfectly normal.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Actually it came in handy. I only wish I'd had the opportunity to use it on a horse.
Lieutenant Worf: [confused] Of course...


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Rules of Engagement (#4.17)" (1996)
[on behalf of his crew, Sisko has invited Worf to a party at Quark's]
Lt. Commander Worf: But I do not feel like celebrating.
Captain Sisko: Part of being a captain is knowing when to smile. Make the troops happy, even when it's the last thing in the world you want to do. Because they're your troops, and you have to take care of them.

[last lines]
Lt. Commander Worf: Life is a great deal more complicated in this red uniform.
Captain Sisko: Wait till you get four pips on that collar. You'll wish you had gone into botany.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Chain of Command: Part 1 (#6.10)" (1992)
[in the caves on Celtris III, Picard, Worf and Dr. Crusher are surprised by bat-like creatures]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: It's all right. They're called lynars, a kind of Celtran bat; they're harmless.
Lieutenant Worf: [slightly intimidated] Bats?
Doctor Beverly Crusher: You're not afraid of bats, are you, Worf?
Lieutenant Worf: Of course not.

[Picard, Worf and Dr. Crusher have to rappel down a precipice]
Doctor Beverly Crusher: [slightly uneasy] We could try to find another way down.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Unfortunately, that would take several hours. We don't have the time.
Lieutenant Worf: You're not afraid of heights, are you, Doctor?
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Of course not.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: To the Death (#4.22)" (1996)
Worf: [to Sisko] You're asking us to lie to them about our mission. It is not honorable.
O'Brien: There's a lot of things about this mission that bother me. But lying to the Jem'Hadar is not on top of my list.

Worf: We consider Klingon women our partners in battle. They're the mothers of our children.
Jadzia Dax: And a lot of fun at parties too.
Worf: True.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Legacy (#4.6)" (1990)
[Troi and Worf have lost all their chips to Riker and Data at poker]
Counselor Deanna Troi: You two have successfully divided the evening between you.
Lieutenant Worf: [leaning over to her] I suspect conspiracy.

Lieutenant Worf: I understand you wish to join Starfleet.
Ishara Yar: Someday - if I'm lucky.
Lieutenant Worf: On that day, it is we who will be lucky.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Hunted (#3.11)" (1990)
[Roga Danar is on the loose on the Enterprise]
Lieutenant Worf: There is a full contingent of Security at all shuttlebays.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: You want my advice? Double it!

Lieutenant Worf: You are cunning. You must have Klingon blood. But the battle is over.
Roga Danar: My battle is never over.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Yesterday's Enterprise (#3.15)" (1990)
[Guinan has served Worf a drink to taste]
Guinan: It's an Earth drink. Prune juice.
Lieutenant Worf: A warrior's drink!

Guinan: You know, you always drink alone. It wouldn't hurt you to seek out a little... companionship.
Lieutenant Worf: I would require a Klingon woman for... companionship. Earth females are too fragile.
Guinan: Not all of them. There are a few on this ship that... would find you... tame.
[Worf laughs out loud]
Lieutenant Worf: Impossible.
Guinan: You never know till you try.
Lieutenant Worf: Then I will never know.
Guinan: Coward.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: In Theory (#4.25)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: Klingons do not pursue relationships. They conquer that which they desire. However - Lieutenant D'Sora serves under my command. If she were mistreated, I would be very displeased - sir.

[Picard finds his ready room inexplicably in disarray and consults Worf to investigate]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Well, perhaps we have a poltergeist.
Lieutenant Worf: [puzzled] Sir?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: A mischievous spirit.
Lieutenant Worf: [disbelieving] Sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Perhaps not.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Family (#4.2)" (1990)
Lieutenant Worf: My mother is *never* on time. It is so... human of her.

CPO Sergey Rozhenko, ret.: You look good, son. Put on a little weight, huh?
Lieutenant Worf: No.
CPO Sergey Rozhenko, ret.: Sure you have. Looks good on you. Still working out with those holodeck monsters, I bet.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Ties of Blood and Water (#5.19)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Worf: Major Kira - friends with a Cardassian - seems wrong.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: You should have known her five years ago. Back then I never thought she'd be friends with anyone.

Lt. Commander Worf: Cardassian politics are very complex.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I think they like it that way.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Next Phase (#5.24)" (1992)
[Data is asking Worf for advice about La Forge's and Ro's funeral; the "ghostly" La Forge and Ro are watching]
Lt. Commander Data: Ensign Ro was a Bajoran. Her beliefs should be reflected as well. However, their death rituals are quite complicated.
Ensign Ro Laren: [groans] Oh, please, not the death chant.
Lieutenant Worf: The Bajoran death chant is over two hours long.

Lieutenant Worf: I am very happy for Commander La Forge. He has crossed over to that which is beyond. For a Klingon, this is a joyful time. A friend has died in the line of duty, and he has earned a place among the honored dead. It is not a time to mourn.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: I Borg (#5.23)" (1992)
Lieutenant Worf: Kill it now. Make it appear that it died in the crash. Leave no evidence that we were ever here.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Galaxy's Child (#4.16)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: Captain, the creatures are accelerating their approach. They are changing color!


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Ascent (#5.9)" (1996)
[Odo has just been saved from the planet]
Odo: [slightly bemused] I'm alive.
Doctor Bashir: Yes, I'm gonna see you stay that way.
Odo: Quark?
Lt. Commander Worf: We found him on top of the mountain slumped over a subspace transmitter.
Odo: You mean he made it?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: If it wasn't for his signal, we never would have found you. Looks like he saved both of your lives.
Odo: I was afraid you'd say that.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Defector (#3.10)" (1990)
Admiral Jarok: How do you allow Klingon pahtk to walk around in a Starfleet uniform?
Lieutenant Worf: You are lucky this is not a Klingon ship. We know how to deal with spies.
Admiral Jarok: Remove this tohzah from my sight!
Commander William T. Riker: Your knowledge of Klingon curses is impressive. But as a Romulan might say, only a veruul would use such language in public.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Booby Trap (#3.6)" (1989)
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [of the Promellian battle cruiser] It is exactly as they left it, Number One - 'in the bottle'.
[Data and Worf, like Riker earlier, look at him rather blankly]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The ship in the bottle... Oh, good Lord, didn't anybody here build ships in bottles when they were boys?
Lieutenant Worf: I did not play with toys.
Lt. Commander Data: I was never a boy.
Chief Miles O'Brien: I did, sir.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [pleased] Thank you, Mr. O'Brien.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Doctor Bashir, I Presume? (#5.16)" (1997)

Lieutenant Worf: Data...!
[after Data's shuttle has exploded]


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Devil's Due (#4.13)" (1991)
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Just have Mr. Data fetch me in a shuttle. And have him bring along a uniform.
Lieutenant Worf: Did you say uniform?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [sternly] Yes, I did!


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Who Mourns for Morn? (#6.12)" (1998)
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [about Morn] I used to have a little crush on him.
Lt. Commander Worf: Morn?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: It was before we met! Besides, he wasn't interested.
Lt. Commander Worf: What do you mean, he wasn't interested?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Brothers (#4.3)" (1990)
Lt. Commander Data: [Data has commandeered the bridge and driven the rest of the crew out. Riker and Worf are attempting to regain access through a Jefferies tube] Computer: configure a perimeter field charge, Sections 9K through 12T.
Commander William T. Riker: [the field charge takes effect] What the hell was that?
Lieutenant Worf: He's activated a force field, sir.
Commander William T. Riker: Great. Just great.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Masks (#7.17)" (1994)
Lieutenant Worf: [about the transformations on the Enterprise] We have been receiving reports from the rest of the ship. Part of deck 12 is now an aqueduct.
Counselor Deanna Troi: What are we being transformed into?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I'm not sure I want to find out.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Muse (#4.20)" (1996)
[a rather glum and depressed group is sitting around Lwaxana Troi]
Lwaxana Troi: Odo! Won't you join the party?
Odo: Actually, I have some free time, and I was... wondering if you wanted to take a walk.
Lt. Commander Worf: [apathetic] I would.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Conundrum (#5.14)" (1992)
Lieutenant Worf: Now we are ready.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The question is... for what?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Unification II (#5.8)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: Do you know any Klingon opera?
Amarie: I'm afraid I don't get a lot of requests for it.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Icarus Factor (#2.14)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: [to Data] With all due respect... BEGONE!... sir.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Mind's Eye (#4.24)" (1991)
Ambassador Kell: There are some members of the High Council who would thank you, Worf.
Lieutenant Worf: Thank me?
Ambassador Kell: For killing Duras. No doubt that, had he lived, one day he would ascend to head the Council. Many were not looking forward to that.
Lieutenant Worf: My motives were personal, not political.
Ambassador Kell: Motives? Who cares for motives? Humans, perhaps. What matters is, you acted on that day as a true Klingon.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Lonely Among Us (#1.6)" (1987)
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: So, Worf, why the interest in this? It's just routine maintenance on the sensor assemblies.
Lieutenant Worf: Simple, Geordi. Our Captain wants his junior officers to learn, learn, learn.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Descent: Part 1 (#6.26)" (1993)
Commander William T. Riker: [about the Borg encountered on Ohniaka III] They were fast, aggressive, almost vicious. It was more like fighting Klingons than... Borg.
Commander William T. Riker: [to Worf] No offense.
Lieutenant Worf: None taken.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Pen Pals (#2.15)" (1989)
[the Enterprise is investigating unusual geological activity in the Selcundi Drema sector]
Lt. Commander Data: Commander, I have been reviewing the unmanned probe scans. At some point during the last 150 years, the fifth planet of Selcundi Drema has shattered, forming an asteroid belt.
Commander William T. Riker: I'd call that geological instability.
Lieutenant Worf: Is there any indication that this is the work of an unknown intelligence?
Commander William T. Riker: This is geology, not malevolence. These planets live fast and die hard. The question is, why?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Night Terrors (#4.17)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: I am no longer a warrior. I'm no longer strong. I... I feel...
Counselor Deanna Troi: What? What do you feel?
Lieutenant Worf: I feel fear.
Counselor Deanna Troi: To admit that you're afraid gives you strength.
Lieutenant Worf: Something is waiting for us. I am not strong enough to fight it!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Violations (#5.12)" (1992)
Lieutenant Worf: Klingons do not allow themselves to be... "probed".


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Sarek (#3.23)" (1990)
Commander William T. Riker: Is it my imagination, or have tempers become a little frayed on this ship lately?
Lieutenant Worf: I hadn't noticed.
[they enter Ten Forward, where a mass brawl is in full swing]
Lieutenant Worf: I see what you mean.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Homefront (#4.10)" (1996)
Lt. Commander Worf: Our gods are dead. Ancient Klingon warriors slew them a millennia ago. They were more trouble than they were worth.
Major Kira: I don't think I'll ever understand Klingons.
Chief O'Brien: Don't worry about it, Major. Nobody does. It's the way they like it.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Siege of AR-558 (#7.8)" (1998)
Lt. Commander Worf: This was a great victory - one worthy of story and song.
Captain Sisko: It cost enough.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Begotten (#5.12)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Worf: Constable... why are you talking to your beverage?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Time's Arrow: Part 1 (#5.26)" (1992)
Lieutenant Worf: If we find Commander Data, it may be our fate to die with him in the past. If our remains *are* in that cavern, they would have turned to dust long ago.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Dark Page (#7.7)" (1993)
Lwaxana Troi: Aren't you going to mingle, Mr. Woof?
Lieutenant Worf: I do not care for telepaths; they make me... uneasy.
Lwaxana Troi: Oh, don't worry. The Cairn couldn't read your thoughts even if they wanted to. Your brain isn't sophisticated enough.
[Riker smirks gleefully]
Lwaxana Troi: Neither is yours, dear. They can only communicate with other telepaths.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Resurrection (#6.8)" (1997)
Major Kira: Sometimes your taste in men frightens me.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: [arriving in Ops] I'll make sure to tell Worf you said so.
Lt. Commander Worf: [at his console] Tell me what?
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Don't be so nosy!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: 11001001 (#1.14)" (1988)
[Worf and a few other officers are about to play parrises squares]
Lieutenant Worf: Rest assured, Commander, we will be victorious, at whatever the cost.
Commander William T. Riker: Worf, it's just a game, a friendly little competition. You work up a sweat, you have a few laughs, and you make new friends.
Lieutenant Worf: If winning is not important, then, Commander - why keep score?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Clues (#4.14)" (1991)
Lieutenant Worf: A warrior does not complain about physical discomfort.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Time Squared (#2.13)" (1989)
Lieutenant Worf: Delicious.
[on Riker's omelets that everyone else seems to find inedible]


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: A Simple Investigation (#5.17)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Odo and a woman - it was bound to happen sooner or later, right?
Major Kira: I suppose.
Lt. Commander Worf: [interrupting, slightly disgruntled] You can begin your experiment at any time!
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: I'm talking to Kira.
Lt. Commander Worf: You're not talking, you're gossiping. And besides, Odo is quite capable of taking care of himself.
Lt. Commander Jadzia Dax: Don't shout across the room. If you want to... "gossip" with us, then come down here.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Treachery, Faith, and the Great River (#7.6)" (1998)
Nog: And remember: anytime you're shopping for wines or spirits, my cousin Gant is the man to see.
Lt. Commander Worf: We will keep that in mind.
[leaves]
Chief O'Brien: Your cousin Gant?
Nog: Just another sailor on the Great River.

[a welcoming party is preparing to meet mediator Riva on his planet]
Counselor Deanna Troi: Have your sensors indicated any problem down there, Lieutenant?
Lieutenant Worf: None.
Counselor Deanna Troi: But you're feeling a certain confusion about this mission.
Lieutenant Worf: No.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Yes! I've never known you to have such strong emotions, except when you're expecting to do battle.
Lieutenant Worf: I am not expecting battle.
Commander William T. Riker: Then what is bothering you?
Lieutenant Worf: [taking a moment] Riva.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Ah. Riva negotiated several treaties between the Klingons and the Federation.
Lieutenant Worf: Before him, there was no Klingon word for '*peace*-maker'.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Favor the Bold (#6.5)" (1997)
Lt. Commander Worf: They are not interrogating you, Mister Garak. They are debriefing. There is a difference.
Garak: Not from where I'm sitting.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Dogs of War (#7.24)" (1999)
Chief O'Brien: [on Bashir and Dax] I don't get it. He's interested, she's interested... What's the problem?
Lt. Commander Worf: He is an overgrown child, and she is very... confused.
Chief O'Brien: It could still work.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Emergence (#7.23)" (1994)
[despite having been shut down earlier, the holodeck has reactivated itself]
Lieutenant Worf: Which program is running?
Lt. Commander Data: Several different programs are running simultaneously.
Commander William T. Riker: This should be interesting.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: A Time to Stand (#6.1)" (1997)

Worf: As it should be.

Lieutenant Worf: Human bonding rituals often involve a great deal of talking and dancing and crying.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Arsenal of Freedom (#1.20)" (1988)
Lt. Commander Data: [scanning the planet Minos] No signs of intelligent life forms. Vegetation and animal life only.
Counselor Deanna Troi: What happened to all the people?
Lieutenant Worf: War?
Lt. Commander Data: Disease?
Lieutenant Geordi La Forge: A dissatisfied customer?


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Masterpiece Society (#5.13)" (1992)
Doctor Beverly Crusher: There must be something we can do to help.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: We may have done too much to help them already, Doctor.
Lieutenant Worf: But we saved them from destruction.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Did we?


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Rejoined (#4.5)" (1995)
Major Kira Nerys: What do Klingons dream about?
Worf: Things that would send cold chills down your spine, and wake you in the middle of the night. It is better you do not know. Excuse me.
[leaves]
Major Kira Nerys: I can never tell when he's joking.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Unnatural Selection (#2.7)" (1989)
Commander William T. Riker: [on seeing the dead crew of the USS Lantree] Looks like they had a battle with time.

[O'Brien has advised Worf earlier to go a little easier on the Engineering personnel]
Lt. Commander Worf: How long will the repairs take?
Stevens: Sixteen hours.
Chief O'Brien: Oh, you can do it in twelve.
Stevens: Twelve. Sure. No problem.
[walks off a little less enthusiastic]
Chief O'Brien: [to Worf] See? You can give 'em a little slack; but you can't take your hands off the reins.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Naked Now (#1.2)" (1987)
Lt. Cmdr. Data: There was a rather peculiar limerick, being delivered by someone in the shuttlecraft bay. I am not sure I understand it... "There was a young lady from Venus, whose body was shaped like a... "
Capt. Picard: Captain to Security, come in!
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Did I say something wrong?
Lieutenant Worf: I don't understand their humor either.
