Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [playing the role of Lwaxana's fanatic lover] My love... is a fever, longing still, For that which longer nurseth the disease.

Lwaxana Troi: Tell me more.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes, For they in thee a thousand errors see; But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise, Who, in despite of view, are pleased to dote. Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: When I have pluck'd the rose, I cannot give it vital growth again. It needs must wither.

Lwaxana Troi: Can you imagine that dreadful little creature talking to me like that? Doesn't he realize that I am the daughter of the Fifth House of Betazed? Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx?

Counselor Deanna Troi: The Sacred Chalice of Rixx is an old clay pot with mold growing inside it.

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, well, perhaps one day, when you're older and wiser, you'll understand.

Lwaxana Troi: I-I must admit, when you, uh, first approached me aboard the Enterprise, I was...

[clears her throat in disgust]

Lwaxana Troi: ...intrigued.

DaiMon Tog: You mean revolted.

Lwaxana Troi: Perhaps a little.

[Picard has rescued Lwaxana from DaiMon Tog]

Lwaxana Troi: Thank you, Jean-Luc. You were most convincing. You certainly convinced me.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I am truly grateful, Mrs. Troi, that you risked your life to save my people. I'll have you home in a few hours.

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, no, no, no, no, that won't be necessary. I'd just love to hear more of your poetry.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [disentangling himself from Lwaxana] Uhh... Perhaps another time. Please.

[offers her his chair, then walks up to Wesley at the helm]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Crusher, set course for Betazed.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [low voice] Warp nine.

[Wesley has missed his lift to Starfleet Academy and therefore has to stay on the Enterprise]

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I'm just thinking that... I'm saying goodbye to you, as you are today.

Wesley Crusher: But I thought you said I wasn't going to be able to go.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The Academy must make you wait, that's true; but... when I review your service to this ship, your crewmates, I cannot in all conscience make *you* wait for the Academy. You see, Wesley... in my eyes, you're an acting ensign in title only. I hereby grant you field promotion to full ensign with all the commensurate responsibilities and privileges of that rank. Congratulations.

Lwaxana Troi: [arguing with Deanna about getting married] You had your chance with Commander Riker. Look how you ruined that.

Counselor Deanna Troi: I did not ruin anything! We've become very good friends.

Lwaxana Troi: Well, all the better; you certainly wouldn't wanna marry an enemy.

Lwaxana Troi: I have a new love, Jean-Luc. And you can't keep killing all my lovers. Now, that simply has to stop.

DaiMon Tog: [alarmed] Killing?

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, he's insanely jealous.

Lwaxana Troi: You've got to enjoy life, relax, like I do. Find yourself the right man. Think of your future. Hm - think of *my* future.

DaiMon Tog: Lwaxana Troi, I desire you.

Lwaxana Troi: What?

DaiMon Tog: You see, your Betazoid skills would be very useful to me, and I find you very attractive. I am willing to pay handsomely for you.

Lwaxana Troi: I don't believe this.

DaiMon Tog: You must be aware that every female has her price.

Lwaxana Troi: Let's get one thing straight, little man. I am not for sale. And if, by some chance, I were to become available, I would rather eat Orion wing-slugs than deal with a toad-faced TROLL like you! So go away and find yourself somebody else to become your property!

Counselor Deanna Troi: I'm sorry, and I didn't mean to get so upset with you at the reception.

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, no. Deanna, try to understand. You're all I have. My only concern is for your happiness.

Counselor Deanna Troi: I am happy. Why can't you believe that?

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, I wish I could, but how much happiness is there in always being there for someone else and never being there for yourself?

Lwaxana Troi: All right, in case I have to spell it out for you, I am talking about finding a husband, having a child. That's what made me happy. At least, until now.

Commander William T. Riker: DaiMon Tog, I thought the Krayton left orbit hours ago.

DaiMon Tog: It did. But when I tried to get the image of Lwaxana Troi out of mind, I could not succeed.

[gives Lwaxana flowers]

Lwaxana Troi: [takes them and tosses them over her shoulder] This is ludicrous. You mean, you came all the way back to Betazed for me?

Lwaxana Troi: Do you forgive me?

DaiMon Tog: Yes, but with your powers, we could be a formidable team.

[begins lowering her sleeve]

Lwaxana Troi: [quickly grabs his hand feigning attraction] My, you have great strength in your hands.

DaiMon Tog: And you like that?

Lwaxana Troi: [sighs] I've always admired strong males.

DaiMon Tog: You are beautiful. It is impossible for me to resist you.

Lwaxana Troi: Then, uh...

[clears throat]

Lwaxana Troi: ... don't.

[they awkwardly kiss; cuts to Deanna grimacing in disgust]

Lwaxana Troi: My, my, what, uh, big ears you have

[starts rubbing his ears]

Lwaxana Troi: . Has anyone ever told you how attractive they are?

[rolls eyes]

DaiMon Tog: Some females think they are my best feature.

[she looks at him quizzically]

DaiMon Tog: No one has ever given me oo-mox like this before.

Lwaxana Troi: Oo-mox?

DaiMon Tog: There's no translation, but the ear is one of our most erogenous zones.

[she becomes alarmed; he doesn't notice]

Lwaxana Troi: [after she has been beamed from the Ferengi ship Krayton to the Enterprise and is sitting on Picard's knee] You wonderfully jealous fool, you.

DaiMon Tog: Captain, I trust there will be no further action taken against us?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Such as my reporting this incident to your superiors who may question your competency as DaiMon? I will think about it. Screen off.

Lwaxana Troi: Thank you, Jean-Luc. You were most convincing. You certainly convinced me.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I am truly grateful, Mrs. Troi, that you risked your life to save my people. I'll have you home within a few hours.

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, no, no, no, no, that won't be necessary. I'd just love to hear more of your poetry.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Perhaps another time.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [Standing up] Please. Mister Crusher, set course for Betazed.

DaiMon Tog: Captain Picard, so good of you to meet us. We were on our way to Betazed to return our guests.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Of course you were, DaiMon. But you're still holding Lwaxana Troi.

Lwaxana Troi: When will you get it through your thick head that it's over between us, Jean-Luc?

Counselor Deanna Troi: [after having the transmission muted] I think I know what she's doing. You have to fight to get her back, Captain.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [Re-opening the transmission] Er, er. It's not over between us, Lwaxana. You're mine and I will not let you go. I insist you return to my side immediately.

Lwaxana Troi: You mean, you still care?

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: My love is a fever, longing still for that which longer nurseth the disease.

Lwaxana Troi: Tell me more.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: In faith, I do not love thee with mine eyes, for they in thee a thousand errors see. But 'tis my heart that loves what they despise, who in despite of view are please'd to dote. Shall I compare the to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate.

DaiMon Tog: You didn't tell me that you and Captain Picard were...

Lwaxana Troi: You said you didn't want to hear about my other romances.

Lwaxana Troi: I have a new love, Jean-Luc. And you can't keep killing all my lovers. That simply has to stop.

DaiMon Tog: Killing?

Lwaxana Troi: Oh, he's insanely jealous.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Listen, Tog, I must possesses Lwaxana. And if that means destroying your ship in the process, so be it.

DaiMon Tog: Captain, I had no idea Lwaxana was...

Lwaxana Troi: Don't let him threaten you. You can defeat him.

Lwaxana Troi: [to Picard] The only way you'll ever get me back is over Tog's dead body!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: That can be arranged. Mister Worf, arm phaser banks and photon torpedoes. If Lwaxana Troi is not in my arms in ten seconds, throw everything you've got at the Krayton.

DaiMon Tog: But you will destroy Lwaxana!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: When I have plucked the rose, I cannot give it vital growth again. It needs must wither. Nine, eight. 'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Seven, six.

DaiMon Tog: No, wait.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Five, four.

DaiMon Tog: Beam her to their Bridge, now!

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Two, one.
