"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Cost of Living (#5.20)" (1992)
Alexander Rozhenko: The higher - the fewer.

Lwaxana Troi: Now, if we're to be real friends, we've got to share only the truth.
Alexander Rozhenko: Why?
Lwaxana Troi: Well, for one thing, it's easier. When you tell the truth, you never have to remember later what you lied about.

Lwaxana Troi: I really wasn't in any trouble - until I saw this dress! Oohh... ugly, isn't it?
Alexander Rozhenko: What's it for?
Lwaxana Troi: I'm getting married.
Alexander Rozhenko: Why?
Lwaxana Troi: You sure my daughter didn't send you?
[he looks at her]
Lwaxana Troi: Oh, just a joke.

Lwaxana Troi: People get married because, um, because they want to spend their lives with someone.
Alexander Rozhenko: Their whole life? They must have to like that person a lot.
Lwaxana Troi: Well, if you're young and lucky, it'll be someone you like a lot, yes. And, uh, and if you're older...
Alexander Rozhenko: Are you very old?
Lwaxana Troi: [melancholic] Um... I'm alone, Alex. And, uh, when you do get older... and can no longer pick and choose from whatever may come your way... then you, uh... then you do what we call 'compromise'. Keeps you from being afraid.

Alexander Rozhenko: You know, maybe this would be a good time to get one of those little people that live inside of you, to... to come out and tell you what to do, or help you or something.

Alexander Rozhenko: I'm supposed to do everything right all the time. I don't know how.
Lwaxana Troi: [sighs] To tell you the truth, little warrior... neither do I.

Alexander Rozhenko: [referring to two holo-characters] Why are they arguing?
Juggler: They're friends. They love contradiction. They, they thrive on challenge. They flourish in conflict.
Alexander Rozhenko: Then why are they friends?
Lwaxana Troi: Who else're you gonna fight with if not your friends?

Counselor Troi: What would you like your father to promise, Alexander?
Alexander Rozhenko: No yelling.
Lieutenant Worf: I DO N... - I do not yell.

[the juggler appears downcast]
Alexander Rozhenko: What happened?
Juggler: Oh... I was just juggling, and I happened to - happ - catch one in my mouth. It tasted good, so I ate it. Before I knew it, I'd eaten up every one of my worlds. It never occurred to me that once they were gone, I'd have nothing left to juggle. If you ever have a world, plan ahead! Don't eat it.


"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sons and Daughters (#6.3)" (1997)
Alexander Rozhenko: [presenting himself to Martok and Worf] Alexander Rozhenko.
Lt. Commander Worf: Alexander.
Martok: Rozhenko? Of what House is Rozhenko?
Alexander Rozhenko: Of no House, sir. My honor will be my own.

Martok: Tell me, Alexander Rozhenko. Why are you on my ship?
Alexander Rozhenko: To serve the Empire, General.
Martok: That is a slogan, not an answer.

Lt. Commander Worf: We both know you do not belong here. You heard what I expect from the rest of the crew. Twice that I expect from you! Do we understand each other?
Alexander Rozhenko: Perfectly.

Alexander Rozhenko: You call yourself my father, but you haven't tried to see me or talk to me in five years. I wasn't the kind of son you wanted, so you pretended that you had no son. You never accepted me. You abandoned me.

Lt. Commander Worf: I cannot change the mistakes I have made. But from this day forward, I promise, I will stand with you.
Alexander Rozhenko: We'll see if you mean it.
Lt. Commander Worf: Yes, we will. What you're about to do entails a grave obligation. Do not accept it lightly.
Alexander Rozhenko: I understand. And I accept.
Lt. Commander Worf: Good. I will teach you what you need to know to be a warrior. And you will teach me what I need to know to be a father.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: A Fistful of Datas (#6.8)" (1992)
Alexander Rozhenko: Saddle up, Father!

Lieutenant Worf: [on the holodeck] Where are we?
Alexander Rozhenko: Deadwood. 19th century Earth - the Ancient West.
Lieutenant Worf: What is our function here?
Alexander Rozhenko: You are the sheriff, and I am the deputy.

[a lightly dressed woman is posing from a saloon balcony]
Lieutenant Worf: You wrote this holodeck program yourself?
Alexander Rozhenko: Well - Mr. Barclay helped a little.
Lieutenant Worf: I must have a little talk with Mr. Barclay.

[last lines]
Alexander Rozhenko: Father? After what happened, I guess you'll never want to go back to the Ancient West.
Lieutenant Worf: The town of Deadwood may face danger once again. If they do... they will need a sheriff... and a deputy.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Firstborn (#7.21)" (1994)
K'Mtar: Your head is filled with foolish Human notions about how things are. You're a Klingon! It is time you began to act like one.

K'Mtar: [as Worf prepares to strangle him] Father, stop! I am your son - I am Alexander!

K'Mtar: [about Quark] Could not he have been lying?
Commander William T. Riker: Why would he? I'd just be knocking on his door again in a few days, and I wouldn't be in as good a mood.

Alexander Rozhenko: I don't want to be a warrior!


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ethics (#5.16)" (1992)
Alexander Rozhenko: This is part of that Klingon stuff, isn't it? My mother always said Klingons had a lot of dumb ideas about honor.

Lieutenant Worf: I need you to help me.
Alexander Rozhenko: Anything, Father.
Lieutenant Worf: I have taught you about... Klingon customs - the beliefs which we value. According to a tradition, I must take my life, after suffering this kind of injury. But I have decided to break with tradition. I have decided to live.
Alexander Rozhenko: I'm glad, Father.
Lieutenant Worf: I will still have to undergo a dangerous operation. I may still die. But it will not be by my own hand.
[hands Alexander his ritual knife]
Lieutenant Worf: Return this to our quarters.
Alexander Rozhenko: [takes it] Yes, sir.

[last lines]
Lieutenant Worf: We will work together.
Alexander Rozhenko: Yes, sir.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: Reunion (#4.7)" (1990)
Alexander Rozhenko: Where are the other Klingons?
Lieutenant Worf: There are no others on board.
Alexander Rozhenko: Why?
Lieutenant Worf: The Federation and the Klingon Empire were enemies for many years. No other Klingons have asked to serve in Starfleet.
Alexander Rozhenko: Why?
Lieutenant Worf: A warrior does not ask so many questions!

[last lines]
Alexander Rozhenko: Are you my father?
Lieutenant Worf: Yes. I am your father.


"Star Trek: The Next Generation: New Ground (#5.10)" (1992)
[last lines]
[Worf had considered sending Alexander to a Klingon school]
Lieutenant Worf: Klingon schools are designed to be difficult. The physical and mental hardships faced by the students are meant to build character and strength. However - if you wish to face a greater challenge, you may stay here with me. It would not be easy - for either of us. But perhaps we can face the challenge together.
Alexander Rozhenko: I accept your challenge, Father. I will stay.
Lieutenant Worf: I believe your mother would be pleased.
