Harry Kim: [on taking the night shifts on the bridge] This is an opportunity to get command experience. You might put in for some yourself.
Tom Paris: What's the point of trying to compete with an ambitious upstart like you? Just promise me one thing: when you reach the top, you'll remember all the little people you climbed over to get there, and won't make them work night shifts.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: Assemble the staff. We're going to find a way to outsmart a smart bomb.
Tom Paris: Asking me to give you a bumpy ride is like asking a virtuoso to sing off-key.
Tom Paris: Show mercy!
Neelix: You people have a saying: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. In other words, your credit's no good here.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: How is he doing?
Chakotay: Well, let's see. I haven't heard from him in almost five minutes, so he should be checking in right about...
Harry Kim: [over communicator] Away team to Voyager.
Captain Kathryn Janeway: That's our Harry! If I were you, I'd watch out for your job.
Harry Kim: You're a sentient being. You don't have to be a slave to your programming. Look at the Doctor.
The Doctor/Warhead: He's a tool, a holographic puppet.
Harry Kim: That "puppet" saved your life. If it weren't for him, you'd still be damaged and alone on that planet. He's the one that convinced me to beam you aboard. And when we discovered what you were, and some people wanted to destroy you, the Doctor defended your right to exist.
The Doctor/Warhead: What's your point?
Harry Kim: Even though he was only programmed to be a doctor, he's become more than that. He's made friends, he's piloted a starship, he even sings.
The Doctor/Warhead: Despite all of his achievements, did he ever stop being a doctor?
Harry Kim: No, but...
The Doctor/Warhead: And I can't stop being a weapon.
The Doctor: I was the one who asked you to bring that device aboard in the first place. I even argued with the Captain to keep it aboard after we learned what it was.
Harry Kim: 'It' was an artificial intelligence, like you. But I have to admit, his personality made you seem like Mr. Congeniality.
Harry Kim: Uh, do me a favor.
Ensign Jenkins: Of course, sir.
Harry Kim: No more distress calls - at least not tonight.
Harry Kim: I better get to the bridge. You never know when Ensign Kim'll be called upon to take command again.
The Doctor: Voyager could do worse.
Harry Kim: Chakotay lets me make a command decision. What do I do? I beam a talking bomb on board.
B'Elanna Torres: The first time I commanded an away mission, I led my people into a cave that I thought was a Cardassian military installation. Turned out I'd mistaken unstable mineral deposits for weapon signatures. There was a rock slide and we were stuck there for three days.
Harry Kim: What did you do?
B'Elanna Torres: We dug ourselves out with our bare hands.
[Kim walks out of the room]
B'Elanna Torres: Where're you going?
Harry Kim: To dig us out.
The Doctor/Warhead: Reintegrate my neural matrix, and return me to the others.
Harry Kim: We won't do that.
The Doctor/Warhead: I have no intention of proceeding to my target. I will stop them.
Harry Kim: How?
The Doctor/Warhead: I am a weapon of mass destruction.
[Kim is still looking unsure]
The Doctor/Warhead: You want me to see past my programming. Then you must try to see past your doubts.
The Doctor/Warhead: I am simply completing my mission. Only the target has changed.
Harry Kim: Look, Doc, the truth is, I never would have gotten through to him without you.
The Doctor: Of what I heard, I wasn't much help.
Harry Kim: You were. I held you up as an example of how an artificial intelligence could exceed its programming. I didn't realize how true that was, until today.
