"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.

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!

[Jake and "Keiko" are talking about the myth of the Bajoran Pah-wraiths]

Keiko O'Brien/Pah-wraith: Maybe you will, you never know.

Keiko O'Brien/Pah-wraith: Strange, these corporeal bodies of yours - so fragile. Burst even a tiny blood vessel in the brain and every memory, every passionate emotion gone forever.

Keiko O'Brien/Pah-wraith: Another weakness of you corporeal lifeforms, your need for physical intimacy. It's especially irritating in your young.

O'Brien: [a Pah-wraith possessed Keiko wants O'Brien to target the wormhole and destroy the Prophets] Let's get on with it!
Keiko O'Brien/Pah-wraith: Miles, you have a lot to learn about patience.

Keiko O'Brien: I respect that the Bajoran people believe that it does.
Vedek Winn: But that's not what you teach?
Keiko O'Brien: No, I don't teach Bajoran spiritual beliefs; that's your job. Mine is to open the children's minds to history, to literature, to mathematics, to science.
Vedek Winn: You *are* opening the children's minds - to blasphemy. And I cannot permit it to continue.

Keiko O'Brien: I'm not teaching any philosophy. What I'm trying to teach is pure science.
Major Kira: Some might say pure science, taught without a spiritual context, *is* a philosophy, Mrs. O'Brien.

Keiko O'Brien: Perfect!

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.
