Let's go with a classic, one of the lines I've most often referenced in fivers: "Sometimes you just have to punch your way through."

Now to look up the context for that Archer quote, because I have no idea why he was being so rude...

Are you sure that wasn't Janeway talking about whipping Voyager through the twin pulsars at the end of "Scientific Method"?

Or plowing into the giant space amoeba in that episode that I've actually seen?

Did I miss a post here? I didn't say anything about where the quote was from, but you guys are all "Are you sure it wasn't from X?"

I was just trying to guess, and ended up following evay's odd phrasing.

It's either "Parallax" or "The Cloud." I think. Defs Janeways. Defs a quote I already used in the Facebook version of this game. :P

No it's not. You used "There's coffee in that nebula". If you're gonna stick your tongue out at somebody, get your facts straight first.

The episode is in fact "Parallax", and it's such a perfect Janeway line that VVS9 used it as the quote on the new Voyager's dedication plaque. (I thought that was a bit silly. Quotes should be properly aged.) "The Cloud" is the one Sa'ar's remembering, and the source of the coffee quote. Back in the day, one of the big VOY sites was called The Coffee Nebula for that reason -- hence my rather dated blurb for the episode.

Wowbagger's up next.

OH, I finally figured out WTF is going on. Zeke wrote "I have to look up the context of that Archer quote," and he was referring to the quote about "You're uglier than I remembered," and somehow I connected that with "punch your way through" and thought that was the "rude Archer quote."

And since we're not allowed to Google, I read it and thought, "Gee, that sounds a lot more like Janeway." Which in fact it is.

Aha! I thought it might be something like that. No, the Archer quote is the ugly one; turns out he said it because diplomacy with Tellarites is based entirely on insults. I loved S4, but the details didn't stick with me like they did in S1 and S3. Maybe it's fiver-writing that does it...

That reminds me: when is my signed copy of Five-Minute "Zero Hour" coming in the mail? I've changed addresses since 2008.

"See you... out there."

1) Announcement about that shortly. 2) I woulda thought your quote was a real softball, but since it's still hanging there: Q in "All Good Things."

"A reasonable diagnosis... for a security officer." It should be easy to guess who's saying this, so which episode -- and what's the comeback?

Really, no takers? Maybe it'll help if I supply the comeback, which is delivered a few lines later: "A prudent security measure... for a doctor."

Yep, them's the characters. You're not gonna get the episode any time soon (watch VOY already!), but maybe you'll give someone else an assist.

I did. It hurt. Besides, it hasn't been off the air long enough for me to get into it.

I did finally watch all of Buffy and Angel over the last year, though. Woulda done Firefly too, but my computer didn't like the DVD.

I'm pretty sure it's do with the Borg (the "prudent security measure" was slapping a force field around something), but it's been too long, and I don't own the eps to rewatch them.

Yep, right species. So when did they have a (still-assimilated) Borg drone on the ship? There were only a couple of times, so if you can think of one, guess it!

I want to say it's the one where Holodoc's mobile emitter was assimilated and birthed "One." (I think that was the name of episode as well.) There wasn't much light-hearted banter at the beginning of S4, when Seven came onboard.

'Fraid not. The quote isn't from "Drone" ("One" was the one with Seven running the ship alone, later remade as "Doctor's Orders"). And since you've actually brought it up now and dismissed it, I may as well reveal that it WAS Seven they were talking about, and this was in "The Gift" (her last episode prior to de-assimilation).

Let's go with another VOY quote just to annoy Sa'ar. "You're supposed to be OFF during your off-hours!"
