"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Unification II (#5.8)" (1991)
Sela: Excuse me, I'm just finishing up a speech. For you, Mister Spock. I rather enjoy writing. I don't get to do it very often in this job.
Lt. Commander Data: Perhaps you would be happier in another job.

[Sela has prepared a speech for Spock]
Ambassador Spock: I will not read this or any other statement.
Sela: If you do not, you will die. All of you will die.
Ambassador Spock: Since it is logical to conclude that you will kill us in any event, I choose not to cooperate.
Sela: [fuming] I hate Vulcans. I hate the logic, I hate the arrogance.

Sela: You'll never get out of this building.
Lt. Commander Data: I disagree, Commander. After studying the design of this structure, I have determined that our best route of escape would be the underground exit to the east of this wing. I have disconnected certain security scanners to assist us. I am afraid we cannot allow you to warn your guards.
[he uses the Vulcan nerve pinch on Sela, who goes down unconscious]
Ambassador Spock: Not bad.

[Spock, Picard and Data have fallen victim to a Romulan setup]
Sela: Do not be distressed. Your dream of reunification is not dead. It will simply take a different form - the Romulan conquest of Vulcan.

[Sela outlines the Romulan plan to conquer Vulcan]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Do you seriously believe that the Federation will not immediately intervene?
Sela: Of course it will. And we're fully prepared for it. But we will *be* there, entrenched. And it will be very difficult to get us out, once we are. Reunification will become a fact of life.

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Redemption II (#5.1)" (1991)
[Picard has asked Sela about her mother, Tasha Yar]
Sela: One night, when I was four years old, she came to me. She bundled me up and she told me to stay quiet as we left the compound. I realized she was taking me away, she was taking me away from my home, my father... So I cried out. My father offered her life, he gave her a home, he gave her a child - and how did she repay him? By betrayal. They executed her!
[she turns away and looks out the window for a moment, then turns back]
Sela: Everything in me that was Human died that day with my mother. All that's left now is Romulan. Never doubt that.

Sela: [referring to Toral] Silence the child or send him away!

"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Redemption (#4.26)" (1991)
[last lines of season 4]
Sela: We should not discount Jean-Luc Picard yet. He is Human; and Humans have a way of showing up when you least expect them.
