I can think of a couple other possibilities, but the most obvious is "The Mind's Eye".

You are correct. That's the last line of the episode.

I want to say that's Riker some time in the first season, possibly the episode where Geordi gets command because absolutely everyone above him is stuck on a planet being shot at by L'Oreal Eggs.

Beyond that, I've got nothing (not even the episode title).

Right character, wrong episode (the one you have in mind is "The Arsenal of Freedom"). I can tell you the episode you want is from S2 and has a somewhat similar premise.

Trip and Mal being rescued at the end of "United."

(I know, I know, but it fits, doesn't it?)

Yeah, it does fit. But this one was Riker from "Contagion".

Next: "If I get lost, I'll just follow the ship in front of us."

Nog, What You Leave Behind, as the combined Federation-Klingon-Romulan fleet heads for Cardassia Prime.

Dead on. Out of curiosity, is there any special reason you know this one so well?

It seemed like a neat line, especially in the middle of the glorious CGI panorama of all the ships the Alliance still seemed to have despite Starfleet getting curbstomped in every single battle. Seriously, the Second Fleet was said to be down to 33% strength at one point, the Seventh Fleet took 88% losses in a single engagement...I don't understand how there was a Starfleet left by the end of the summer hiatus, let along how they went on the offensive.

Ummm, next line. An easy one:

In search of his brain, doctor.

Dear dog, that has to be from the ridiculous "Spock's Brain," but I've no idea who said it.

Well, it was said to McCoy, and it clearly wasn't Spock...

"Kirk" would have to be my random guess, since it's not one of the "Brain and brain, what is brain?" alien chickies.

Correct. None of the other four series regulars ever got any meaningful lines, so it probably wasn't them, and the aliens chickies weren't portrayed as being smart enough to understand McCoy's title (misogyny much?), which leaves Scene-Stealer Shatner as the only logical choice.

My turn, probably another softball:

"Yeah, and my underwear's flame-retardant... That doesn't mean I'm gonna light myself on fire to prove it!"

That's gotta be Trip (or maybe Tom Paris), but it'll definitely take some narrowing down.

One of your guesses is correct.

(Fun fact: Connor Trinneer and Robbie McNeill at one point had planned to do a two-handed theatre run of "True West," alternating roles each night, the way Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller did with Danny Boyle's "Frankenstein" in London.)

Heh, that's neat.

It would have to be after someone does something risky/stupid to test a theory. Tom in "Waking Moments"?

Nope. Wrong on all counts.
