Henry Janeway: I see. Well, um... what does this have to do with anything?
Shannon O'Donnell: They didn't taste good, Henry. It wasn't the same. I just kept thinking about you, and how I wish you'd been there.

Shannon O'Donnell: Oh, you don't know what you're missing.

Shannon O'Donnell: [smiles] And I'll have a few connections. I could probably get you a nice remote location, so nobody would bother you.
Henry Janeway: Not much profit in that. You sure you won't drive away again?
Shannon O'Donnell: No. But if I do, we'll make the trip together.
