Wesley Crusher: [to Riker] What should I say? How do I act? What do I do?
Commander William T. Riker: Guinan, I need your help. Could you step over here a minute?
Guinan: Sounds simple enough.
Commander William T. Riker: [to Wesley] Now, first words out of your mouth are the most important. You may want to start with something like this.
Commander William T. Riker: You are the most beautiful woman in the galaxy...
Commander William T. Riker: But that might not work.
Guinan: Yes! Yes, it would.
Commander William T. Riker: [to Guinan] You don't know how long I've wanted to tell you that.
Guinan: But you were afraid.
Guinan: Of me?
Commander William T. Riker: Of us. Of what we might become...
[Wesley tries to interrupt]
Commander William T. Riker: ... or that you might think that was a line.
Guinan: Maybe I do think it's a line.
Commander William T. Riker: Then you think I'm not sincere.
Guinan: I didn't say that. There's nothing wrong with a line. It's like a knock at the door.
Commander William T. Riker: Then you're inviting me in.
Guinan: I'm not sending you away.
Commander William T. Riker: That's more than I expected.
Guinan: Is it as much as you hoped?
Commander William T. Riker: To hope is to recognize the possibility; I had only dreams.
Guinan: Dreams can be dangerous.
Commander William T. Riker: Not these dreams. I dream of a galaxy where your eyes are the stars and the universe worships the night.
Guinan: Careful. Putting me on a pedestal so high, you may not be able to reach me.
Commander William T. Riker: Then I'll learn how to fly. You are the heart in my day and the soul in my night.
Wesley Crusher: [interrupting] I don't think this is my style.
Guinan: Shut up, kid!
[to Riker, saucily]
Guinan: Tell me more about my eyes.
Wesley Crusher: I'm never gonna feel this way about anyone else.
Guinan: You're right.
Wesley Crusher: I didn't expect you to say that.
Guinan: There'll be others, but every time you feel love, it'll be different. Every time it's different.
Wesley Crusher: Knowing that doesn't make it any easier.
Guinan: It's not supposed to.
[Worf gives Wesley advice on romance from a Klingon perspective]
Wesley Crusher: Are you telling me to go yell at Salia?
Lieutenant Worf: No. Men do not roar. Women roar. Then they hurl heavy objects... and claw at you.
Wesley Crusher: What does the man do?
Lieutenant Worf: [dreamily] He reads love poetry...
Lieutenant Worf: [back to his serious self] He ducks a lot.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The most dangerous animal is a mother protecting her young.
Guinan: Just because a girl runs out doesn't mean she doesn't wish you to follow.
Anya: You'll be happy to see me leave.
Lieutenant Worf: No. You are a worthy opponent.
Anya: Thank you. At heart, we are very much alike.
Lieutenant Worf: Yes, we are.
Anya: Perhaps we shall fight again. On the same side?
Lieutenant Worf: It would be an honor.
Lt. Commander Data: Judging by her appearance, it is likely you and Salia are biologically compatible. Of course there could be a difference in the histocompatibility complex of the cell membrane, but...
Wesley Crusher: Data - I want to meet her, not dissect her.
Wesley Crusher: I think I need to try something a little less... dangerous.
Lieutenant Worf: Go to her door. Beg like a human.
Lieutenant Worf: Do not be fooled by her looks. The body is just a shell.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Mr. Worf, have our passengers' accommodation met with their approval?
Lieutenant Worf: I doubt if anything ever meets with that woman's approval - sir.
Anya: Salia, do an old woman a favor and obey me for the rest of this trip.
Salia: You are no more an old woman than I am a leader.
[Worf appears at their quarters to escort Anya on a tour of the ship]
Anya: You *are* a leader. And I... am older than you could ever imagine.
[Anya has turned out to be an allasomorph, a shapeshifting species]
Lieutenant Worf: Captain - what if Anya transforms?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Improvise.
