"Star Trek: The Next Generation: I Borg (#5.23)" (1992)
[La Forge has provided the Borg with an energy supplying device]
Third of Five: Why do you do this?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I'm just a nice guy at heart. You feeling better?
Third of Five: You are not Borg.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: That's right. And I hope to stay that way.
Third of Five: You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: That's gratitude for you.

Third of Five: We are Borg.
Guinan: Aren't you gonna tell me you have to assimilate me?
Third of Five: You wish to be assimilated?
Guinan: No, but that's what you... things do, isn't it?
[the Borg nods]
Guinan: Resistance is futile?
Third of Five: Resistance is futile.
Guinan: It isn't. My people resisted when the Borg came, to assimilate us. Some of us survived.
Third of Five: Resistance... is not futile?
Guinan: No. But thanks to you, there are very few of us left. We're scattered throughout the galaxy. We don't even have a home anymore.
Third of Five: What you are saying... is that you are lonely.
Guinan: What?
Third of Five: You have no others. You have no home. We... are also lonely.

Third of Five: You will be assimilated.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yes, but before that happens, could we ask you a few questions?

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Part of what we do is learn more about other species.
Third of Five: We assimilate species. Then we know everything about them.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah. I know.

Third of Five: We... are Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Just look around, pal. You're hardly in a position to make any demands.
Third of Five: We must return to the Collective.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Who's "we"?
Third of Five: We... are Borg.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yeah, but... there's only one of you. Do you have a name? A means of identification?
Third of Five: Third of Five.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: [understanding] There were five on your ship. Is that it, just a number?
Third of Five: Third of Five.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Does kinda suit you.

Doctor Beverly Crusher: We don't have designations, we have names. I'm Beverly. This is Geordi.
Third of Five: Do I have a name?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Do you want one?
Third of Five: A name.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: I'm Beverly, he's Geordi, and you...
Third of Five: You.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: You...
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: No, no, wait a minute - that's it: Hugh! What do you think?
Third of Five: 'You'?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: No, not 'you'. 'Hugh'.
Third of Five: 'Hugh'.
Doctor Beverly Crusher: Okay. Now, I'm Beverly.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: I'm Geordi.
Third of Five: We are Hugh.

Third of Five: Are you ever... lonely?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Sometimes. But that's why we have friends.
Third of Five: Friends?
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Sure. Someone you can talk to. Who will be with you when you're lonely. Someone... someone who makes you feel better.
Third of Five: Like Geordi - and Hugh.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Identify yourself.
Third of Five: Hugh.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Identify yourself.
Third of Five: We are Hugh.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is not a Borg identification.
Third of Five: [after a moment] Third of Five.

[at his encounter with Hugh, Picard is acting as Locutus of Borg]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Resistance is futile.
Third of Five: Resistance... is not futile. Some have escaped.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: They will be found. It is inevitable. All will be assimilated.
Third of Five: Must Geordi be assimilated?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Yes.
Third of Five: He does not wish it. He would rather die than be assimilated.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Then he will die.
Third of Five: No. Geordi must not die. Geordi is a friend.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: You will assist us to assimilate this vessel. You are Borg. You will assist us.
Third of Five: I will not.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: What did you say?
Third of Five: I - will not - assist you.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: "I"?
Third of Five: Geordi must not be assimilated.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: But you are Borg.
Third of Five: No. I am Hugh.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: We must know what you want.
Third of Five: You are many. I am one. What I want is not important.

Third of Five: Choose... what I want.

[last lines]
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Well, I guess this is it, huh? So long, Hugh.
Third of Five: Goodbye, Geordi. I will try to remember you.

Third of Five: Captain, I do not want to forget that I am Hugh.
