Quotes

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Data, what velocity would put us back on schedule?

Lt. Commander Data: A resumption of our present course at warp six will place us in the T'lli Beta system in six days, thirteen hours, 47 minutes.

Commander William T. Riker: What, no seconds?

Lt. Commander Data: I have discovered, sir, a certain level of impatience when I calculate a lengthy time interval to the nearest second. However, if you wish...

Commander William T. Riker: No, no. Minutes is fine.

Doctor Beverly Crusher: If you were anyone else, you know the first thing I'd do? I'd send you to Counselor Troi.

Counselor Deanna Troi: Well, then I have an advantage, don't I? I see her quite often.

[Riker takes Troi in his arms to console her]

Counselor Deanna Troi: Is this how you handle all your personnel problems?

Commander William T. Riker: Sure. You'd be surprised how far a hug goes with Geordi - or Worf.

[Troi has lost her empathic powers]

Counselor Deanna Troi: How do you people live like this?

Doctor Beverly Crusher: We get by pretty well, actually. And so will you, in time.

Counselor Deanna Troi: You have no idea! No idea what this is like. How can you know what it's like to lose something you never had?

Counselor Deanna Troi: People come to talk to you about things they want to reveal. As ship's counselor, you have to get them to talk about things they *don't* want to reveal.

Counselor Deanna Troi: You have no idea how frightening it is to... to just be here, without sensing you, without sharing your feelings.

Commander William T. Riker: That's it, isn't it? We're on equal footing now.

Counselor Deanna Troi: What?

Commander William T. Riker: You always had an advantage, a little bit of control of every situation. That must have been a very safe position to be in. To be honest, I'd always thought there was something a little too... aristocratic about your Betazoid heritage, as if your Human side wasn't quite good enough for you.

Counselor Deanna Troi: That isn't true.

Commander William T. Riker: Isn't it?

Guinan: I get so tired of people coming in with their problems. They come in, they want a shoulder to cry on, and generally it turns out to be mine.

Counselor Deanna Troi: You'd make a good counselor.

Guinan: I think so too. So I'm going to talk to Picard about it.

Counselor Deanna Troi: About what? You becoming counselor?

Guinan: Well, yes, you are leaving. That means there won't be a counselor on board. And I suppose I'll have a very long line at that bar. It would be nice to have a nice office, too.

Guinan: Human intuition and instinct are not always right. But they do make life interesting.

Counselor Deanna Troi: So I'm discovering.

Counselor Deanna Troi: Right now, I feel as two-dimensional as our friends out there - in the universe, but barely aware of it. Just trying to survive... on instinct.

Ensign Janet Brooks: Maybe you couldn't sense what I was feeling. But you *helped*.

Counselor Deanna Troi: [on the two-dimensional beings] It's all right. They're home. We were wrong. The cosmic string was never dangerous to them; it was the one place in the galaxy they most wanted to be.

Commander William T. Riker: Deanna?

Counselor Deanna Troi: Yes - I sensed it!

Counselor Deanna Troi: I never fully appreciated how difficult, and how rewarding it is to be Human. But I had a lot of help.

Counselor Deanna Troi: Thank you for making me face my other half.

Commander William T. Riker: Frightening, wasn't it?

Counselor Deanna Troi: A little. You were right, though. There is something to be learned when you're not in control of every situation.

Commander William T. Riker: Welcome to the Human race.

Counselor Deanna Troi: By the way - the next time you call me 'aristocratic'...

Counselor Deanna Troi: You know what the worst part of this is? And I've seen it happen to so many patients.

Commander William T. Riker: What?

Counselor Deanna Troi: The way other people change. How they start to treat you differently. They walk on eggshells around you. Sometimes they avoid you altogether. Sometimes they become overbearing - "reach out a helping hand to the blind woman".

Commander William T. Riker: I'm sorry if I...

Counselor Deanna Troi: I will not be treated that way!
