Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: You must have weapons, some way to defend yourselves. How many of 'em are there?
E'lis: Usually seven.
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Seven? You've got 'em outnumbered - nine or ten to one.
Tessic: You've never seen a Klingon in battle, have you?
Captain Jonathan Archer: There's a saying on my world: "Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach him to fish, and he eats for a lifetime."
Lieutenant Malcolm Reed: This battle won't be won with firepower. Deception and surprise can be just as potent as brute force.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: Klingons are aggressive warriors. But their tactics are crude. They're slow to adapt to changing circumstances.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I've never liked bullies, Trip. Not on Earth, and not out here.
[T'Pol is demonstrating Vulcan self-defense tactics, using Travis as sparring partner]
Sub-Commander T'Pol: [to Travis] Try to strike me.
Sub-Commander T'Pol: You won't hurt me.
Ensign Travis Mayweather: It's not you that I'm worried about.
[Q'Ell has expressed his wish to take part in the pending battle, claiming that he is very skilled in shooting at lizards]
Commander Charles 'Trip' Tucker III: Shootin' at a lizard is a whole lot different than shootin' at a person. And, er... lizards don't shoot back.
[awaiting their encounter with the Klingons, Archer tells Tessic about his first run-in with the Suliban]
Captain Jonathan Archer: ...I got shot in the leg. Just before I passed out, I remember thinking, "This isn't what I signed up for. I should be mapping star clusters or... making first contact with friendly species." But when those Suliban started firing at my crew... I knew I didn't have any choice but to fight back. I'm not ashamed to admit I was nervous. I'm nervous now. But I know... we can do this.
[the colonists have piled up several containers of deuterium for Enterprise]
Captain Jonathan Archer: There must be over 1,000 liters here.
Captain Jonathan Archer: Our deal was for 200.
Tessic: Our deal was for power cells, medical supplies and repair work. You provided us with much more than that.
