[Lutan has abducted Lieutenant Yar and taken her down to Ligon]

Lt. Commander Data: What Lutan did is similar to what certain American Indians once did called 'counting coup'. That is from an obscure language known as French. Counting coup...

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data. The French language, for centuries on Earth, represented civilization.

Lt. Commander Data: Indeed? But surely, sir...

Commander William T. Riker: [sotto voce] I suggest you drop it, Mr. Data.

Lutan: I find it odd, Captain, that a man of your experience has such difficulty in understanding ordinary politeness.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Such as the politeness of saying 'please' before abducting someone?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Some of it I do understand. She is a rather lovely female.
