Five-Minute "Cause and Effect"
La Forge: We're hit!|
Riker: Oh, crud. Captain, we have to....
Picard: No. Data, do something as long as it's not whatever Riker suggests.
Data: Ha! Data 1, Riker 0!
Captain's Log: See? We didn't just blow up! Ha! So there!
Data: Five aces. I win.
Crusher: La de da de do.
Data: The sensors can't find anything. I believe the Doctor is nuts.
Data: Let's do my idea.
Captain's Log: This area of space is unexplored, but somehow I have the feeling we'll be running into another Starfleet vessel.
Riker: Crapcrapcrapcrap...I mean, I raise you 50.
La Forge: Waaaah. My visor's all weird.
Crusher: I heard voices.
Data: Your idea's stupid.
Captain's Log: WHEEE! Again! Again!
Crusher: Watch this -- a ten, a seven, and a Queen.
Crusher: I heard voices in my quarters.
Data: The voices the Doctor heard were of people getting it on.
La Forge: We're in a time loop, so doing anything is pointless because we've probably already tried it.
Picard: Data, do your thing.
Captain's Log: If a ship blows up in a time loop, does anybody care?
Crusher: Oo! Oo! I know what the cards are going to be. A ten, a seven, a Queen, and a joker.
Data: We're getting what could be a message from the previous loop, but I think it's phony.
Data: Captain, let's do Riker's idea so he'll shut up.
Captain Bateson: You morons! You almost hit us!
