Good try, but no. Btw, you should drop by the fiver quote thread; you're likely to know the current one.

I sooooooooooo need to rewatch VOY. I adored the show and I haven't seen any of it since it aired.

Okay, big hint time: the character chastising the Doctor also appeared on Deep Space Nine.

Zimmerman. It's the episode where the Doctor gets FTPed back to the Alpha Quadrant or something.

Half right. It's Zimmerman, but an earlier appearance.

Oh, then it has to be "The Swarm." Zimmerman (actually the holo-diagnostic) is bitching that his program is cluttered with irrelevant crap, and Doc protests that he sings opera or whatever during his off-hours.

How many holograms that look like Robert Picardo does that ship have?

There's the EMH (Holodoc) and the diagnostic hologram, which was only used the once. There apparently existed at least one backup which was lost on a planet in "Living Witness," but said backup is never mentioned again, so we don't know if they built a new one.

There are approximately 680 EMH Mark Is (the Holodoc's model) in existence. Almost all of them were repurposed to non-medical tasks. One of the few which remained as an EMH made it to the Enterprise, surprisingly.

Bob Picardo has never turned in a bad performance, including when Jeri Ryan played him, so there could have been half a dozen Holodocs on the ship and I wouldn't have complained.

Agreed, although like the Cynic, I think his shtick started to wear thin in the later seasons. The writers knew what a great thing they had with Picardo, and that naturally led to overuse, just as it did with Jeri Ryan. When something like "Virtuoso" is taking up space that other characters could use, you've got a problem.

(Btw, they didn't start phasing out Mark I EMHs until after First Contact. The Mark II was still only a prototype a year later.)

That was kind of a group effort, but evay got the episode, so she's up next.

That's gotta be Tom Paris, but I can't think of a time he would've been asked to do that. Hmm... let's try "Dark Frontier" and "Live Fast and Prosper".

Right character, wrong episode. I'll give you a hint if you want one.

Might be a good idea, yeah.

In keeping with our previous discussion, it was a Doc-heavy episode. And I'll even tell you it was S5.

Let's try "Latent Image" and "Bliss", then.

Nope. "Warhead." Janeway wants Tom to simulate the feeling of going through a minefield so that they can get Seven into Sickbay, so her magic nanoprobes can extricate Doc from the intelligent bomb.

Let's try again with a simpler one:

"With all these new personalities floating around, it's a shame we can't find one for you."

That's gotta be "Infinite Regress".

Since this is fast becoming the Voyager quote game, let's switch it up. In Peter David's Vendetta, the characters mention the autobiography of James Kirk: "Risk Is Our Business". That title is, of course, a quote from himself. When did he say it?
