[the away team is looking over the wild characters on the 20th century LA Boardwalk]
Lieutenant Tuvok: We could've worn our Starfleet uniforms. I doubt if anyone would've noticed.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Lighten up, Tuvok. This was a great time and place, and you're getting to see it first-hand. Come on, take off your shirt.
Lieutenant Tuvok: And risk dermal dysplasia? No thank you.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: [scoffs] Vulcans! Deep down, you're all a bunch of hypochondriacs.
Neelix: We have come across some very intriguing televised broadcasts. Take a look at this: it's a form of entertainment called a 'soap opera'. The exploration of human relationships is fascinating.
Ensign Harry Kim: Hm. I can't imagine just watching the story and not being a part of it.
Kes: That's because you've been spoiled by the holodeck. There's something to be said for non-interactive stories like this, being swept away in the narrative.
Rain Robinson: Who are you people? And what is that thing in your pants?
Lieutenant Tuvok: I beg your pardon?
Captain Janeway: Ensign Kim, you have an impeccable sense of timing. Not bad for your first day in the big chair.
[after she and Chakotay have been rescued out of Starling's office]
Rain Robinson: The best stars in Hollywood are right above us!
Captain Janeway: As I recall, Tom, you're something of an aficionado on 20th century America.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: That's right.
Captain Janeway: What will we need to pass as locals in this era?
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Simple: nice clothes, fast car - lots of money!
Captain Janeway: The question isn't where we are - it's *when* we are.
Lieutenant Tuvok: I am curious, Lieutenant. What does it mean, 'groovy'?
Neelix: I can't wait to see if Blaine's twin brother is the father of Jessica's baby.
[Janeway is jostled by a skater]
Captain Janeway: For all I know, she could be my great great great... great grandmother.
Commander Chakotay: She does have your legs.
Capt. Braxton: Your vessel is responsible for a disaster in my century, a temporal explosion that will destroy all of Earth's solar system. I've come back in time to prevent that occurrence. My mission is your destruction. You must not resist!
Captain Janeway: I won't sacrifice this ship and crew based on a ten second conversation. I need proof.
Rain Robinson: It was my understanding you wanted to be notified immediately if I ever picked up a gamma emission that matched the frequency profile you gave me. Well - I did. So, I am.
Henry Starling: This could be a close encounter, but then again, it could be a flock of geese.
Rain Robinson: Mmm... Geese don't park themselves 20,000 kilometers above North America.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: You know, you might get better resolution if you adjust your amplitude parameters.
Rain Robinson: You're probably right.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Or you might try using a theta band filter.
Rain Robinson: You know a lot for someone who can't find his way past Saturn.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: It's a shame though. She was about to make the biggest discovery in human history. Could have changed her career.
Lieutenant Tuvok: And ended ours.
Lieutenant Tuvok: Perhaps we should find a more secluded parking place. This is, after all, a stolen vehicle.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Nobody's around, Tuvok. We're fine.
Lieutenant Tuvok: A taxi cab would've been less worrisome and more ethical.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: We haven't stolen anything. We borrowed a car, and we'll return it to the dealership as soon as we're done.
Lieutenant Tuvok: I was referring to the ethics of time travel.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Somehow I doubt that taking a test drive is gonna alter the course of the universe.
Henry Starling: Do you think E.T. likes Chateau Coeur?
Rain Robinson: Well, if he doesn't, I've got a six-pack in the fridge.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: I majored in astrophysics.
Rain Robinson: Where?
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Starfleet Academy.
Rain Robinson: Never heard of it.
Lieutenant Tom Paris: Uh... East Coast school.
Capt. Braxton: All things are set in motion. The temporal explosion will occur. The end is coming! The future's end!
Captain Janeway: I've got a starship in orbit that can vaporise this entire building in the blink of an eye.
Henry Starling: And you along with it.
Captain Janeway: If necessary.
Henry Starling: Captain... you've got some cojones.
Science Division Officer: [Voyager has been hailed by Rain Robinson, while orbiting 20th Century Earth] Should I respond?
Ensign Harry Kim: Absolutely not.
