Lt. Cmdr. Data: [after the "quarrel" with Jenna] In my study of interpersonal dynamics, I have found that conflict, followed by emotional release, often strengthens the connection between two people.
Lt. Jenna D'Sora: But... there's something so forced and artificial about the way you're doing it, Data. It's just not the real you.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: With regard to romantic relationships, there is no real me.

Lt. Jenna D'Sora: Kiss me.
[Data obliges]
Lt. Jenna D'Sora: What were you just thinking?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: In that particular moment, I was reconfiguring the warp field parameters, analyzing the collected works of Charles Dickens, calculating the maximum pressure I could safely apply to your lips, considering a new food supplement for Sp-ot...

Lt. Jenna D'Sora: You silver-tongued devil!

Lt. Jenna D'Sora: This is all part of a program?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Yes. One which I have just created for romantic relationships.
Lt. Jenna D'Sora: So I'm, erm... I'm just a small variable in one of your new computational environments?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: You are much more than that, Jenna. I have written a subroutine specifically for you - a program within the program. I have devoted a considerable share of my internal resources to its development.
Lt. Jenna D'Sora: Data... that's the nicest thing anybody's ever said to me.
