Harry Kim: When I first came on board Voyager, I was pretty green, right?
Tom Paris: A deep, almost fluorescent green, if I remember correctly.
Tom Paris: [on ways to compensate for Voyager's lack of fuel] We could set up a bicycle in the mess hall, attach a generator, pedal home.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Now, why didn't I think of that?
Tom Paris: And I volunteer Harry to take the first shift.
[Kim intends to shuttle to the demon class planet to collect deuterium, despite Janeway's and Tuvok's reservations]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Even if I agreed, I'd never let you go alone.
Harry Kim: Of course not. That's why I'm volunteering my good buddy Tom here to go with me.
[the Doctor is complaining to Chakotay about Neelix and a few other crew members who are trying to use sickbay as temporary quarters]
Chakotay: We are short on beds for now. We've got to adapt.
The Doctor: But... what if there's a medical emergency?
Chakotay: Then Neelix and the others will get out of the way.
The Doctor: But... this isn't just sickbay. It's my residence.
Neelix: And we promise to be the most perfect houseguests.
Chakotay: What more can you ask for?
The Doctor: But... I have a routine. I'm a night owl. What if one of them should snore while I'm listening to Puccini?
Chakotay: Well, if you feel that strongly about it, Doc, I suppose we'll have to consider other options.
The Doctor: Thank you, Commander.
[sneers at Neelix]
Chakotay: For example, we could shut down your program until you're needed. The Captain asked me to look for ways to conserve power. And it would spare you from having to listen to them snore.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [over communicator] Commander Chakotay to the bridge.
Chakotay: On my way.
The Doctor: But...
Tom Paris: Just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
[on the dangerous flight through the planet's atmosphere]
Tom Paris: All right, I'm gonna set us down. On my mark.
[the shuttle sets down with a violent jolt]
Tom Paris: Mark!
Harry Kim: You did that on purpose, didn't you?
Tom Paris II: You know what they say about your life passing before your eyes? Well, it's true. I was finally getting past puberty when suddenly, I lost consciousness.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [analyzing the silvery substance] Deuterium, hydrogen sulfate, dichromates...
B'Elanna Torres: Add a little sodium chloride and it would probably taste a lot like Neelix's soup.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: We should be so lucky.
The Doctor: [about Paris II] Aside from his ability to breathe the rarified air on this planet, he's the exact duplicate of Mr. Paris. He even seems to share his memories, not to mention his winning personality.
Tom Paris II: [to Chakotay] Don't tell me that a big tough guy like you is afraid of a little poisoned atmosphere.
[Chakotay is going to look for Kim and Paris on the planet's surface]
B'Elanna Torres: Do me a favor.
B'Elanna Torres: Take Seven of Nine with you.
Chakotay: You're recommending her?
B'Elanna Torres: You said you needed cool heads, didn't you? Nobody's head is cooler than hers.
[Voyager has landed on the demon class planet]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Status?
Tuvok: I could give you a litany of damaged systems, Captain. But suffice it to say, now that we're down, we won't be going up again soon.
The Doctor: Yes.
Neelix: Thanks for you hospitality. And if you ever need a place to stay - my door is always open.
Ensign Vorik: Lieutenant.
B'Elanna Torres: Yes.
Ensign Vorik: We should have transporters back online within the hour.
B'Elanna Torres: Well, that's great. But right now, I'm more concerned with little things, like... oh, I don't know, say, life support?
Ensign Vorik: Indeed. According to my calculations, environmental systems will cease to function in two hours.
B'Elanna Torres: You say that like you're giving me the weather report.
Ensign Vorik: I agree the situation is dire, but losing our cool will not help matters.
B'Elanna Torres: "Losing our cool"? Where did you pick up that expression?
Ensign Vorik: Mr. Paris.
B'Elanna Torres: [pats his arm] Well, there's hope for you yet.
Harry Kim II: [about the biomimetic compound] It's never been conscious, never sentient. Before now, before me and the other.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Tom Paris.
Harry Kim II: We're the first. Don't you see? You came here, you showed us. When the compound came in contact with Tom and Harry, it experienced awareness for the first time. Before, it was only instinct - sound and light and heat. But those two... showed us *thought*!
Harry Kim II: We'd rather die than be alone. We deserve life.
Chakotay: [on Kim and Paris] Looks like they went this way.
Seven of Nine: My tricorder isn't picking up any life signs. How did you reach that conclusion?
Chakotay: [indicates the soil] Footprints. - I guess you never assimilated any Indian scouts.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: [to Kim II] It's time to meet your new family.
Tom Paris: Do me a favor: the next time you try to assert yourself, leave me out of it. I hate hot weather.
Harry Kim: Don't worry, we can cut some holes in the environmental suits, get some ventilation going.
Tom Paris: Harry - while you're busy improving yourself, you might try working on your sense of humor.
Harry Kim: *My* sense of humor? And what about that stupid gag about the bicycle?
Tom Paris: Oh-ho-ho, *that* was funny!
