Default Trek quote game

Rules:

(1) Name the source episode.
(2) Guessers must get it from memory; no Google or reference books.
(3) Two guesses allowed per post.
(4) You can guess again as soon as someone else has guessed.
(5) First to answer correctly must give the next quote.

We'll begin with this classic: "I love all jazz, except Dixieland."

Minuet in "10011001", or whatever that binary number is. She doesn't like Dixieland because you can't dance to it.

Quark in...uhhh...the DS9 episode where the Klingons invade Cardassia, whining to Garak about how his bar will go broke because there won't be anymore Cardassians to buy his fish sauce or the corn syrup they call booze.

I think.

"A simple yes would have sufficed."

Picard in "Where Silence Has Lease". Great episode. (And the DS9 ep is called "Way of the Warrior".)

"The Enemy". It's also the 285th Rule of Acquisition, so it must show up elsewhere, but I know it only from LaForge's line in "The Enemy."

Next up: "They had brains the size of a walnut. That's very small."

That's a really funny coincidence. Archer says that in "Azati Prime" when he's getting beaten up -- and the one I actually had in mind for my quote is another such episode, namely "The Andorian Incident." (Trip says it there.) It came to my mind because I happened to make the TV Tropes page for this idea; I should've remembered there was more than one Trek example.

[ETA: I just checked; "The Collaborator" and "The Sound of Her Voice" are the episodes where Quark quotes that particular rule. It's the 285th and last.]

"I know you'll try. And I know you'll FAIL!"
