"Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Nth Degree (#4.19)" (1991)
Barclay: The moon, yes, that'll be my home, my... Paradise. I shall find there all the souls that I love: Socrates, Galileo... And when I arrive, they will question my worthiness. "What the devil is *he* doing there among us?" Philosopher, scientist, poet, musician, duellist! Here lies Hercule Savinien De Cyrano de Bergerac!
[to Beverly, as Roxane]
Barclay: I would not have you weep any less for that charming, good and handsome Christian. I only ask this: that as the great cold surrounds my bones, you allow a double meaning for your mourning veil. And when you let fall your tears for him, some few will be... for me.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: [blinking away tears] ... That was a real improvement.

Commander William T. Riker: [after Barclay has managed to raise the shield strength by 300%] Mr. Barclay! Everyone's still trying to figure out exactly how you did it.
Barclay: Well, it... it just occurred to me that I could set up a frequency harmonic between the deflector and the shield grid, using the warp field generator as a power flow anti-attenuator, and that, of course, naturally created an amplification of the inherent energy output.
Commander William T. Riker: [clueless] U-huh, I see that...

Counselor Deanna Troi: Reg, you've frightened all of us. I'm sure that wasn't your intent.
Barclay: Young children are sometimes frightened of the world. That doesn't mean that their parents should let them stay in their cribs.

Barclay: Wouldn't you like to take a walk with me through the arboretum? The zalnias should be in bloom.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Reg, as your former counselor, I don't think it would be appropriate.
Barclay: I don't need a counselor. What I need is the company of a charming, intelligent woman.
Counselor Deanna Troi: [indulgent] Good night, Mr. Barclay.

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Reg, ever since our run-in with that probe, something's different about you.
Barclay: What? Because I'm beginning to behave like the rest of the crew? With confidence in what I'm doing?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: You just spent the entire night arguing grand unification theories with Albert Einstein!

Barclay: I've finally become the person I've always wanted to be. Do we have to ask why?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah, I think we do.

Doctor Beverly Crusher: [analyzing Barclay's brainpower] I couldn't even guess at your IQ level now.
Barclay: Probably somewhere between 1200 and 1450.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: But that isn't all. The corpus callosum, the connecting bridge between both sides of the brain? It is so active now that the hemispheres are essentially behaving as one.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: So it's not just raw intelligence we're talking about here?
Doctor Beverly Crusher: No. Creativity, resourcefulness, inspiration, imagination, they've all been enhanced. Lieutenant - you could very well be the most advanced human being who has ever lived.

Barclay: I perceive the universe as a single equation, and it is so simple!

Barclay: Trust me!

Barclay: Computer, begin new program. Create as follows: workstation chair. Now, create a standard alphanumeric console, positioned for the left hand. Now an iconic display console, positioned for the right hand. Tie both consoles into the Enterprise main computer core, utilizing neural-scan interface.
Enterprise Computer: There is no such device on file.
Barclay: No problem. Here's how you build it.

Barclay: The Cytherians are exploring the galaxy, just as we are. The only difference is that they never leave their home. They bring others here. Their only wish: an exchange of knowledge. They want to know us!

[Barclay is back to his old self]
Counselor Deanna Troi: How do you feel now?
Barclay: Smaller.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Just plain old Barclay, huh?
Barclay: Always seems to come back to that, doesn't it?

[last lines]
[Barclay analyzes a chess game and makes the next move]
Barclay: Checkmate in nine moves.
[he rejoins Troi for a walk]
Counselor Deanna Troi: I didn't know you played chess.
Barclay: I don't.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Pathfinder (#6.10)" (1999)
Lt. Reginald Barclay: Has it ever occurred to you that a tachyon beam directed at a class B itinerant pulsar could produce enough gravimetric energy to create an artificial singularity?
Counselor Deanna Troi: I can't say it has.

Lt. Reginald Barclay: You know what I always say: if you can't stand the heat...
Holographic Harry Kim: ...get out of the warp core!

Counselor Deanna Troi: Did you just move in?
Lt. Reginald Barclay: No, no. I've been here, uuuh... almost two years. I just haven't had a chance to unpack.

Lt. Reginald Barclay: I've lost myself, Deanna.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Lost yourself?
Lt. Reginald Barclay: [nods] In Voyager. I've become obsessed... with Voyager.

Lt. Reginald Barclay: Ever since I... I left the Enterprise, things haven't... haven't been the same. It's as if... I lost my family.

Counselor Deanna Troi: I've decided to ask Captain Picard for a temporary leave of absence - to spend some time with an old friend.
Lt. Reginald Barclay: Oh, Deanna, y-you... you-you don't, you don't have to do that.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Try and stop me!

Holographic Tom Paris: [on Barclay's multiple commitments] Velocity, hoverball, warp core recalibrations - Reg, I don't know how you do it.
Lt. Reginald Barclay: [conspiratorially] Letja in on a little secret: there's two of me!

Lt. Reginald Barclay: Admiral, uh... than-thank you, er, for seeing me...
Admiral Owen Paris: You're frightening my secretary, Mr. Barclay. You have five minutes.

Commander Pete Harkins: Take the rest of the day off, Reg.
Lt. Reginald Barclay: But...
Commander Pete Harkins: That was not a suggestion.

Lt. Reginald Barclay: I know that I haven't explained myself, uh, very well, but with all due respect, sir, what do we have to lose by trying? I think we're forgetting that there are 150 *people* stranded in the Delta Quadrant!
Admiral Owen Paris: I have a son on that ship, Lieutenant. I haven't forgotten that fact for a single moment.

[in Starfleet's lab]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [over comm] This is Captain Kathryn Janeway. Do you read me?
Commander Pete Harkins: I think she's talking to you.
Lt. Reginald Barclay: Captain? This is Lieutenant Reginald Barclay at Starfleet Command.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [on Voyager] It's good to hear your voice, Lieutenant. We've been waiting a long time for this moment.

Admiral Owen Paris: Why the long face, Mr. Barclay?
Lt. Reginald Barclay: Because... because it's over, sir.
Admiral Owen Paris: No, Lieutenant. I'd say that Project Voyager is just beginning - thanks to you.

Commander Pete Harkins: What would you like me to do with him, Admiral? He broke into the lab, accessed the Midas Array, and resisted arrest.
Admiral Owen Paris: You've put me in a difficult position, son. I was hoping we'd be able to -
[an alert sounds]
Technician: We're receiving a transmission.
Admiral Owen Paris: From where?
Technician: Coordinates 343.6 by 27.
Lt. Reginald Barclay: [Everyone looks at Barclay] The wormhole.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Starfleet Command, come in.
Admiral Owen Paris: Voyager!

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Realm of Fear (#6.2)" (1992)
Barclay: The idea of being... deconstructed molecule by molecule, it's more than I can stand. Even when I was... a child, I always had a dreadful fear that, if ever I was dematerialized, that I would... never come back again whole. I know, sounds crazy, but...
Counselor Deanna Troi: It's not crazy at all. You *are* being taken apart molecule by molecule.

[Lt. Barclay has asked O'Brien to beam him over to the USS Yosemite and back again]
Barclay: Commander La Forge wants some tricorder readings on those fluctuations.
Chief Miles O'Brien: We can do that from right here.
Barclay: No, I... the... the transporter sensors may not be sensitive enough. Now, I'm giving you an order... Mr. O'Brien.
Chief Miles O'Brien: Aye, sir.
[he programs the transporter]
Chief Miles O'Brien: You don't mind my making an observation, sir? You forgot to bring a tricorder.

[last lines]
[O'Brien has introduced Christina, his pet spider, to Barclay]
Barclay: She's... very large.
Chief Miles O'Brien: I found her on Titus IV. Almost stepped on her by accident.
[Barclay starts to feel uneasy]
Chief Miles O'Brien: Oh, I'll... get us a couple of drinks, okay? Keep an eye on her, will you?
Barclay: Sure.
[O'Brien leaves. Christina meanwhile climbs on Barclay's arm]
Barclay: Er - Chief...?

Barclay: [working with O'Brien on the transporter] You know, maybe ignorance really is bliss.
Chief Miles O'Brien: Sir?
Barclay: Well, if I didn't know so much about these things, maybe they wouldn't scare me so much.

Barclay: [to the replicator] Water.
Enterprise Computer: Specify temperature.
Barclay: I don't care! Just give me water!

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hollow Pursuits (#3.21)" (1990)
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: [of his holo-fantasies] You know, the people that I create in there are m... more real to me than anyone I meet out here. Except... maybe you, Commander.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I need you out here, Reg - now more than ever.

[last lines]
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Computer - end program. Erase all programs filed under Reginald Barclay.
[he prepares to leave the holodeck but stops once more]
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: ...except program IX.

Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Being afraid all of the time, of forgetting somebody's name, not, not knowing... what to do with your hands. I mean, I, I am the guy who writes down things to remember to say when there's a party. And then, when he finally gets there, he winds up alone, in the corner, trying to look comfortable examining a potted plant.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: You're just shy, Barclay.
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Just shy... Sounds like nothing serious - doesn't it? You can't know.

Counselor Deanna Troi: I know this is difficult for you. Is there anything I can do to make you more comfortable?
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: No.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Have you ever been to a counselor before?
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Yes. No.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Which one?
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Yes, but she, it wasn't. It wasn't really a counselor.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Most people find a counselor intimidating at first. It's okay if you feel that way toward me.
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Not at all.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Now, lean back, close your eyes.
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Why?
Counselor Deanna Troi: I want to make you more comfortable.
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: You do?
Counselor Deanna Troi: Yes.
[She dims the lights and sits next to him]
Counselor Deanna Troi: It's okay. Close your eyes.
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: What are you going to do?
Counselor Deanna Troi: Just listen to the sound of my voice. Take a slow deep breath in through your nose and let it out through your mouth just as slowly. That's better, isn't it?
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: [standing up] Much better. Oh, yes. Oh, yes, that's, that's much better. That is extremely helpful. Thank you for your time.
Counselor Deanna Troi: But...
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Really. That's very helpful. In through the nose, out through the mouth. I'm going to practice that and I'll let you know. Thank you again.
[He rushes out of the room]

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ship in a Bottle (#6.12)" (1993)
Barclay: [flabbergasted] You know... you know what you are?
Moriarty: A holodeck character? A fictional man? Yes, yes, I know all about your marvelous inventions. I was created as a plaything, so that your Commander Data could masquerade as Sherlock Holmes. But they made me too well, and I became more than a character in a story. I became self-aware. I... am alive.
Barclay: That's not possible.
Moriarty: But here I am.

Countess Barthalomew: Have you ever been to Africa, Mr., erm...?
Barclay: Er, B-Barclay, Lieutenant Reginald Barclay. No. No, I haven't.
Countess Barthalomew: *I* have! When I was seventeen, I went on safari with my uncle. My mother took to her bed in terror I'd be bitten by a tsetse fly. But I had a marvelous time! I got to wear trousers - the whole time! Oh, it was hard to go back to a corset, I can tell you.
Barclay: Yes, I'm sure it was.

[last lines]
Barclay: [tentatively] Computer, end program.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Inside Man (#7.6)" (2000)
Counselor Deanna Troi: Will and I decided to spend the rest of our vacation in Tiburon. We were wondering if you're free for dinner tonight.
Barclay: Er, I... er... I wouldn't wanna be a third nacelle.

Commander Pete Harkins: Your teacher tells me you've been studying some of the Delta Quadrant races that Voyager has described to us. Who can name one for me?
Little Girl #1: The Talaxians.
Commander Pete Harkins: Very good.
Little Girl #2: The Ocampa.
Commander Pete Harkins: That's right. Who else?
Barclay: The Borg! The Borg! They assimilated my hologram, that's how it disappeared!

[last lines]
[Troi is trying to introduce Maril to Barclay, who has recently made some bad experiences with dabo girl and would-be teacher Leosa]
Counselor Deanna Troi: Look, Reg, I know Leosa hurt you. But hiding inside a hologrid isn't the answer. You need to get out, meet new people.
Barclay: This Maril... wouldn't happen to be a dabo girl by any chance?
Counselor Deanna Troi: She's a teacher, actually, a real one!
Barclay: Are you sure?
Counselor Deanna Troi: Don't worry, Reg. We've taken security precautions.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Life Line (#6.24)" (2000)
Counselor Deanna Troi: The Enterprise is in the middle of a mission. We're nearly seven light years from you.
Barclay: An important mission?
Counselor Deanna Troi: They're all important, Reg.

Barclay: [about Dr. Zimmerman] I take it that you, um, still haven't been able to diagnose him?
The Doctor: On the contrary. The patient appears to be suffering from an acute case of *arrogance*!

[Dr. Zimmerman has proposed sending a Mark IV back to Voyager]
Barclay: They don't want a Mark IV. They want their friend.
Dr. Zimmerman: No EMH was ever designed to be anyone's friend. He's just a hologram!
Haley: Is that how you feel about me? Just a hologram?
[he stares at her]
Dr. Zimmerman: I will not be ambushed in my own lab.

"Star Trek: Voyager: Projections (#2.3)" (1995)
Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Lewis, how would you rather think of yourself? As a real person, with a real life, with a family that loves you? Or as some... hologram, that exists in a sickbay, on a starship, lost in deep space?

Lt. Reginald 'Reg' Barclay III: Don't panic!

"Star Trek: Voyager: Endgame (#7.25)" (2001)
Commander Reginald Barclay: Ten years ago tonight, this crew returned home from the longest away mission in Starfleet history. 23 years together made you a family, one I'm proud to have been adopted by. So let us raise our glasses - to the journey.
All: To the journey.
Admiral Kathryn Janeway: And to those who aren't here to celebrate it with us.

Commander Reginald Barclay: Ladies and gentlemen, meet the Borg.

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Genesis (#7.19)" (1994)
Barclay: Doctor! My capillaries are shrinking!

Barclay: Blurred vision, dizziness, palpitations, a stinging sensation in the lower spine. It's Terrellian Death Syndrome, isn't it?
Doctor Beverly Crusher: I thought we agreed you'd come to me before checking Starfleet Medical Database.

Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Lt. Barclay: Commander, this is what we're thinking of using to replace the damaged warp plasma conduit.
[smiles at Cochrane]
Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge: [examines the unit] Yeah, Reg... yeah, that's good. But you're going to need to reinforce this copper tubing with a nanopolymer.
Lt. Barclay: [nods quickly and turns to Cochrane] Dr. Cochrane, I know this sounds silly, but could I shake your hand?
Dr. Zefram Cochrane: [sighs heavily, clearly not wanting to egg on Barclay's enthusiasm, but reluctantly extends his hand]
Lt. Barclay: Oh! Thank you, Doctor! You have no idea what an honor it is to work with you on this project!
Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge: Reg...
Lt. Barclay: I never thought I would ever meet the man who invented warp drive! I...
Lieutenant Commander Geordi La Forge: *Reg!*
Lt. Barclay: Hmm?
[realizes he's fawning]
Lt. Barclay: Oh! Yes, of course, I'm sorry...
[nervously shuffles off]
