Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Ferengi codes are damn near impossible to break.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Gentlemen, I have the utmost confidence in your ability to perform... the impossible.
DaiMon Tog: Why continue to search for perfection, once you have found it?
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: 'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.
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.
Counselor Deanna Troi: Are we at war with the Ferengi yet?
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: Now, look, Demon Tog, or whatever you call yourself...
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!
Lwaxana Troi: Oh! I should have known. Even their transporters can't be trusted.
[after the Ferengi have beamed her and Deanna out of their clothes]
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...
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?
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]
