Commander William T. Riker: Facing death is the ultimate test of character. I don't wanna die, but if I have to - I'd like to do it with a little pride.
Counselor Deanna Troi: And a lot of impudence.
Commander William T. Riker: You bet.
Dr. Kate Pulaski: There may be some residual memory loss. I just want to be certain that you still know who you are.
[Riker looks at Picard and Data]
Commander William T. Riker: [shrewdly] Of course I know who I am. I'm Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I'm delighted that you're feeling better, Captain.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: [referring to Data] The Admiral and I were worried about you.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: [not understanding] Captain, I do not believe you have the authority to promote me to the rank of admiral.
[Dr. Pulaski reluctantly mounts the transporter platform]
Chief Miles O'Brien: I hope these are the right coordinates...
[she gives him an alarmed look]
Chief Miles O'Brien: Just kidding, Doctor. I know how much you love the transporter.
Dr. Kate Pulaski: About as much as I love comical transporter chiefs.
Commander William T. Riker: [about the tenacity of the Rikers] My great-grandfather once got bit by a rattlesnake. After three days of intense pain... the snake died.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Put your foot where it didn't belong, hm?
Commander William T. Riker: Doctor said she was getting bored; I just thought I'd give her a challenge.
[Riker has been infected with some unknown microbes]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: And the unknown can be benign... or malevolent.
Commander William T. Riker: Captain, one of the things I've learned on these voyages, and on this ship and from you... is that most life forms act out of an instinct for survival, not out of malice.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: It's an important lesson. And I admire your lack of resentment, Number One.
Commander William T. Riker: If you drop a hammer on your foot, it's hardly useful to get mad at the hammer.
[Data has analyzed the vines on the planet and found to be possibly predatory]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Then the vines infect animals, in order to kill them?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: It is possible. For Commander Riker's sake, I hope my hypothesis is in error.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Unfortunately, Commander Data, your hypotheses rarely are.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: What can I do?
Dr. Kate Pulaski: You can get out of my hair.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Aye, aye, Doctor.
