Picard: I just got a message from Starfleet Command
Riker: Bad news?
Picard: Could say that. (sighs) I've been invited to the Annual Starfleet Admiral's Banquet.
Riker: My condolences.
Picard: I managed to avoid it for the past six years, but now it'd seem that my luck has run out.

Data: It is a cellular peptide cake.
Dream Worf: With mint frosting!
Freud: The image of Counselor Troi, a female, is devoured by you, clearly indicating an unconscious desire to possess your own mother.
Data: But I do not have a mother.
Freud: Do not interrupt! The knife, in its violent connotation, suggests a certain feeling of sexual inadequacy.
Data: But I have no sexual desire.
Freud: Ah, impotence on top of everything! It is all becoming clear to me now.
Data: (regarding Spot) He will need to be fed once a day. He prefers feline supplement one-twenty-five.
Worf: I understand.
Data: And he will require water. And you must also provide him with a sand box. And you must talk to him. Tell him he is a pretty cat, and a good cat...
Worf: I will feed it!
Data: Perhaps that will be enough.
