Do either of you care to guess the quote?

Flying Gremlin, if you were concealing a guess it was clever, but I'd still like you to name the speakers and episode.

For the record, I wasn't guessing. I was just expanding on your cauldron stuff with a Shakespearean reference of my own.

Fine, teeny hint. It's not a Shakespeare quote, but it's from an episode where a lot of Shakespeare IS quoted...

It's from Karidian in "Conscience of the King."

I had to spoil it because in my Netflix watching I rediscovered a quote that I'm rather fond of.

"If I were not a consummate professional, and a X, I would find this entire procedure insulting."

The X would be too much of a giveaway.

A very entertaining episode. Entertaining tonight, in fact, after rereading the MA entry on it.

Data, "The Icarus Factor".

The thread died again.

Kirk about Natira in "For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky".

"She was my friend, but you are also my friends. And I want my friends in my life."

I gave up on this, and I even tried to cheat and use Google. Still came up dry.

I'm sure I muffed the quote a bit. Hint: DS9.

You did, of a sort, but I understand that was trying to make it so it was a little bit of a challenge. As soon as you said DS9, it was an easy deduction. I pulled the exact quote from the transcript and bolded what you said:

"I never shook her hand and I never saw her face, but she made me laugh and she made me weep. She was all by herself and I was surrounded by my friends, yet I felt more alone than she did. We've grown apart, the lot of us. We didn't mean for it to happen but it did. The war changed us, pulled us apart. Lisa Cusak was my friend. But you are also my friends, and I want my friends in my life because someday we're going to wake up and we're going to find that someone is missing from this circle, and on that day we're going to mourn, and we shouldn't have to mourn alone."

O'Brien, "The Sound of Her Voice"



As it would be my turn now:

"I understand perfectly. You aren't the first female who's ever had a man run out on her."

The thread died.

Torres in "The Q and the Grey."

"...You'll wish you'd gone into botany." That's Sisko to Worf at the end of "Rules of Engagement." Great line from an odd but fun episode.

I was about to say there's not much point in trying to bring back the quote game until we get more people here, but ST:D is bound to have that effect, so why not? Let's see...

"Am I making any sense here?"
"No, but that's okay."

That's Harry and Janeway in one of the anomaly episodes. The other Voyager that they see is themselves from the past, and he's confused as to how they could receive a hail before they sent it. The precise episode title is escaping me at the moment.

Or is it Harry and Janeway after the ship is duplicated and he's the only adult from the duplicate Voyager to survive? There's no difference, but he's still bothered.

Close enough (first reply). It's Tom rather than Harry, and the episode is "Parallax".

[ED: You were probably thinking Harry because of the bit from your second reply, which is a similar moment with a memorable Janeway response: "You're in Starfleet, Ensign. Weird's part of the job."]
