"Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Matter of Honor (#2.8)" (1989)
Tactics Officer: [about the two female Klingons on board the Pagh] They are inquisitive. They would like to know how you would endure.
Commander William T. Riker: Endure what?
Lt. Klag: Them.
Commander William T. Riker: [looks at the women] One or both?

[Riker is caught off guard when offered with a dish of live gagh]
Lt. Klag: Would you like something easier?
Commander William T. Riker: Easier?
Lt. Klag: Yes. If Klingon food is too strong for you, perhaps we could get one of the females to... breast-feed you.

[after questioning Riker's status as his commanding officer, Lieutenant Klag gets a thrashing from the former]
Commander William T. Riker: My oath is between Captain Kargan and myself. Your only concern is with how you obey my orders. Or do you prefer the rank of prisoner to that of lieutenant?
Lt. Klag: [subdued] I will take your orders.

Commander William T. Riker: After this tour, I may have some worthy questions.
Lt. Klag: Questions about what? About our future? Our future is honor. Our present is serving this ship.

Lt. Klag: My father was captured in battle by Romulans and not allowed to die. He eventually escaped.
Commander William T. Riker: Where is he now?
Lt. Klag: He is on our planet. He waits.
[Riker looks quizzically at the Tactics Officer]
Tactics Officer: He waits for his death.
Lt. Klag: He will eventually fade of a natural illness and die, weakened and useless. Honorless. I will not see him.
Commander William T. Riker: He's your father!
Lt. Klag: A Klingon is his work, not his family. That is the way of things.

Lt. Klag: Klingons do not express feeling the way you do.
Commander William T. Riker: Perhaps you should.
Lt. Klag: We would not know how.
Commander William T. Riker: Yesterday I did not know how to eat gagh.
[he takes a mouthful of that dish]

Lt. Klag: You understand the Klingons better than I thought, Commander.

[Captain Kargan intends to attack the Enterprise]
Commander William T. Riker: I recommend you don't fire until you're within 40,000 kilometers.
Lt. Klag: Why?
Commander William T. Riker: It will cut down their response time.
Lt. Klag: You are honoring your promise to serve us?
Commander William T. Riker: Would you do less?

Captain Kargan: You should have killed me.
Commander William T. Riker: I don't want your command.
Captain Kargan: But you tricked me to get it.
Commander William T. Riker: Either way you can have it back.
Captain Kargan: ...Then return to your station.
[Riker glances a Klag and stays where he is. Kargan hits him. Klag checks on Riker]
Captain Kargan: Get him off my ship!
Lt. Klag: Yes, Captain.
[to Riker]
Lt. Klag: You understand the Klingons better than I thought, Commander.
Commander William T. Riker: Thank you, my friend.

Lt. Klag: Riker may be a spy. But he's no coward.
