: [on seeing Kyle Riker after, as it seems, a very long time
] This is more than a surprise; it's total shock. Kyle Riker
: You mean you didn't bake me a cake?
: I've come here to help Will prepare for his first task as captain. Counselor Deanna Troi
: Are you sure he'll accept such a dangerous assignment? Kyle Riker
: He'll accept it just because it is dangerous. Counselor Deanna Troi
: How can you be so sure? Kyle Riker
: Because I would. And we aren't so different, Will and I.
: Why do I get the feeling that this is a set-up? Counselor Deanna Troi
: Because you're intelligent, wise and quite correct. Kyle Riker
: Well, I've never been set up better, that's for sure.
: How about a drink? Doctor Pulaski
: How about a kiss?
: I thought about you a lot. Doctor Pulaski
: Kyle, I don't need to hear what you don't need to say.
: Poor guy. Picked up the flu virus at our last stop at Nasreldine. Kyle Riker
: Sounds nasty. What's the therapy? Doctor Pulaski
: Tryptophan-lysine distillate, with a generous dose of PCS. Kyle Riker
: PCS? Doctor Pulaski
: "Pulaski's chicken soup".
: I came here to bury the hatchet with my son, only to find out that the ground was frozen solid.
: I may have something of a reputation for excellence. Counselor Deanna Troi
: And false humility. Kyle Riker
: My guess is that Will finds you pretty fascinating. Candor seems to be a trait he admires. Counselor Deanna Troi
: Honesty is the trait he admires most. And you should honestly consider why you're so competitive with your own son.
: I came here thinking we could talk this out. But maybe you're right. Maybe I am no father, and you are no son; and this fight is all we have left.
: You know... it's funny. I can talk to a whole roomful of admirals about anything in the galaxy. But I can't talk to you about how I feel.
