Voyager Computer: Warning. Last chance to be a hero, Doctor. Get going!
Voyager Computer: Warning. Warp core breach a lot sooner than you think.
The Doctor: Somewhere, in that totality known as the universe, is a galaxy called the Milky Way. Tucked into the corner of that galaxy is a planet named Earth. On that planet is a city called Mantua. Go straight ahead, past the fountain, turn right, then left, and right again. You'll find yourself walking along the water, listening, as a man sings of his beloved's unfaithful heart. And even the fish begin to weep. Quando La Donna E Mobile.
[the Doctor is singing La Donna E Mobile in the mess hall, when Tuvok begins to cry]
Tom Paris: [whispering] Tuvok?
[Tuvok goes from crying to laughing uncontrollably, then grunting, as if in pain]
Tom Paris: Tuvok!
[Tuvok starts thrashing around]
Captain Janeway: [clicks her combadge] Janeway to Security, get a team to the mess hall right away!
The Doctor: Stand back! He's been seized by the pon farr! A neurochemical imbalance is driving him to mate. We won't be able to reason with him!
[starts singing to the melody of the music]
The Doctor: Tuvok, I understand / you are a Vulcan man. You have just gone without / For seven years, about.
[signals to Tom]
The Doctor: Paris, please find a way / To load a hypospray. I will give you the sign / Just aim for his behind. Hormones are raging, synapses blazing. It's all so veee-...
[Tom loads and throws the hypospray to the Doctor, who catches it]
The Doctor: ...hery illogical.
[injects Tuvok in the butt with the hypospray, and Tuvok collapses]
The Doctor: Illogical. Iii-ll... illogical.
Captain Janeway: [reading from a PADD] "To Captain Kathryn Janeway, Starship Voyager, from Emergency Medical Hologram, Starship Voyager. Topic: Status of Emergency Medical Hologram, Starship Voyager."
[the Doctor has filed a formal grievance, along with a request to be made captain in the event of a catastrophic emergency]
Captain Janeway: I don't want anybody to be uncomfortable on this ship. I guess we should all try to be a little more considerate of his feelings.
Tom Paris: Captain, he does it to himself. He's Chief Medical Officer. Is it our fault that's not enough for him?
Neelix: On Talaxia, we have a saying: the dream dreams the dreamer.
The Borg: We are the Borg...
The Doctor: I know very well who you are. Stand down your weapons!
The Borg: State your designation.
The Doctor: Emergency Command Hologram, at your service.
The Borg: Designation unknown.
The Doctor: Not for long.
The Borg: You will be assimilated.
The Doctor: Over my dead program!
B'Elanna Torres: They say a doctor who operates on himself has a petaQ for a patient.
[while dreaming, the Doctor walks into a force field]
The Doctor: Pardon me, Miss.
[the crew is monitoring the Doctor's daydreams]
The Doctor: Computer, activate the Emergency Command Hologram.
Harry Kim: This is the part I like.
Captain Janeway: [commenting on the Doctor's nude drawings of Seven] He does the hands very well.
[Phlox has suggested to the Overlooker to tap into Voyager's computer core to get information on it]
The Overlooker: Unacceptable risk!
Devro: You're too confrontational. He'll report you.
Phlox: Hm... Acceptable - risk.
Phlox: The Hierarchy does not tolerate mistakes or misinformation. If they learn of my error... I'll lose my livelihood.
The Doctor: Well, that's what you get for being a peeping Tom.
The Doctor: The Borg, the Hierarchy, it's all the same to me - just another bully who didn't know when to back off.
Captain Janeway: Well, I guess it's time to turn fantasy into reality.
[the Doctor is about to try the Captain's chair]
Chakotay: It won't bite.
Tom Paris: What I wouldn't give right now for a whoopee cushion.
Harry Kim: A what?
Tom Paris: Ancient technology.
The Doctor: Tuvok! Activate the photonic cannon!
[everyone else is looking at each other, stunned]
The Doctor: Tuvok, that was an order!
Tuvok: Activating the photonic cannon - sir.
[the Doctor is afraid of failing in his first real command experience]
Harry Kim: Listen, Doc, the whole reason you wanted to be able to daydream was to test out possibilities, right? Well, consider this a field test.
Captain Janeway: [after the Doctor has mastered the 'field test'] I'm going to authorize a research project, to explore your command abilities. You're a natural.
Seven of Nine: Congratulations, Doctor.
[she kisses him on the cheek]
Seven of Nine: That was a platonic gesture. Don't expect me to pose for you.
The Doctor: Noted.
The Doctor: Thank you for this opportunity, Captain. All I've ever wanted was to live up to my full potential, to hone all my skills, expand my abilities, to help the people I love.
Crewman: Forget the children! Save yourselves!
