[the Ferengi have plundered Enterprise]
Captain Jonathan Archer: What do you need all this for, anyway? You seem to already have plenty of technology.
Krem: One can never have too much. The Rules of Acquisition say "Expand or die."
Captain Jonathan Archer: "Rules of Acquisition"?
Krem: Mm, that's rule number 45. I've memorized all 173, including the most important one: "A man is only worth the sum of his possessions."

Captain Jonathan Archer: [to Krem] You... sure told him.

Captain Jonathan Archer: Not another word, Commander, that's an order!
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: I'm not letting 'em take my wife!
Ulis: Wife?
Krem: She's not the one with the pointy ears, is she?
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: No. Her name's Hoshi. And you're gonna keep your filthy hands off her! Do we have a deal?
Captain Jonathan Archer: You take them anywhere near that vault and I'll throw you in the brig for insubordination.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You don't give a damn about this crew. All you care about is your precious gold.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I'm warning you, Trip.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You're a greedy son of a bitch!
Captain Jonathan Archer: What's your wife worth? Five bars of gold, maybe six? Let them take Hoshi, and I'll give you ten.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: What?
Captain Jonathan Archer: All right, fifteen!

Captain Jonathan Archer: It's your loss.
