  • Quotes

    • Gowron: Your blood will paint the way to the future.

    • Picard: (to the Duras sisters) You have manipulated the circumstances with the skill of a Romulan. My decision will be announced tomorrow at high sun. Excellent tea. Good day, ladies.

    • Gowron: You both fought as warriors. You have proven your hearts are Klingon. I return your family honor. I give you back that which was wrongfully taken from you. Let your name be spoken once again. You are Worf, son of Mogh.

    • Worf: Klingons do not laugh.
      Guinan: Oh yes they do. Absolutely they do. You don't, but I've heard Klingon belly laughs that would curl your hair.

    • Worf: I have been told that patience is sometimes a more effective weapon than the sword.
      Picard: Patience is a human virtue, one that I am glad to see you've taken to heart. But doesn't this situation require a more Klingon response? Your discommendation is a facade to protect less honorable men. It is a lie. Lies must be challenged.

    • Sela: Humans have a way of showing up when you least expect them.

    • Worf: We cannot restore honor by acting dishonorably.
