"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Shadowplay (#2.16)" (1994)
Rurigan: I was happy living on Yadera Prime - that is, until the Dominion took over, and changed our whole way of life. And I realized one morning that I didn't really belong there anymore. So I came here, and I used a holo-generator to recreate all the things that I'd lost. I've lived here in my village for nearly thirty years. I've watched the people marry, have children, grow old. And sometimes I even forgot that they were holograms. But it's over. It's over; and I would appreciate it if you'd take me back to Yadera Prime.
Odo: But... what about the villagers, what about your granddaughter?
Rurigan: She's not real.
Odo: Technically I suppose you're right. Maybe, by our definition, Taya is not real; her memories are stored in a computer, her body is made up of omicron particles. But who is to say that our definition of life is the only valid one?

Odo: I saw the way you held her hand when she was sad. I saw the way you tried to comfort her when she was frightened.
Rurigan: I-I didn't want her to get hurt.
Odo: If she's not real, what does it matter?
Rurigan: It matters. It matters to me.
Odo: Why should it matter to you if a hologram cries?
Rurigan: Because I love her.

Colyus: [after Dax has restored the holographic village with all its inhabitants] We just have to get used to the fact that we're holograms.
Rurigan: We're alive and we have our families back, that's the only thing that counts.
Colyus: I wonder who created all this.
Odo: Whoever it was did a fine job.
Colyus: They did, didn't they?
