  • Trivia

    • Watch closely in the background of the Observation Lounge surprise party scene, and you will see Jonathan Frakes uncontrollably laughing at his other cast members' reactions, and Michael Dorn is trying to settle him down by giving him harsh looks.

    • The game works through the eyes. How can Geordi play the game? It can't use his eyes and I cannot believe it can work with his VISOR, because it works with heat and chemical/electronical sight.

    • As Wesley is forced to watch the mind controlling game, he tries to prevent its effects by closing his eyes, but Riker and Worf force them open by pulling his eyelids apart. As they are doing this, Wesley blinks. Surely if you can blink, you can close your eyes.

  • Quotes

    • Troi: First, you spoon the fudge around the rim, leaving only ice cream in the middle. (eats a bite) Then, gently spoon the ice cream around the sides like you're sculpting it. (eats another bite) Relish every bite. Make every one an event. And on the last bite, close your eyes.
      (She closes her eyes and has a spoonful.)

    • Troi: I never met a chocolate I didn't like.

    • Wesley: What was your first year like ?
      Data: Although I did extremely well scholastically, my lack of human understanding often created social obstacles.
      Wesley: Like what?
      Data: I particularly remember the phenomenon of practical jokes, several which I fell victim to.

    • Riker: Chocolate ice-cream, chocolate fudge and chocolate chips. You aren't depressed, are you?
      Troi: I'm fine, Commander.

    • Data: A conflict has arisen between the planetary evolution team and the stellar physicists. Each wishes to be the first to use the thermal imaging array.
      Geordi: Well, tell them to flip a coin. We got to work together on this mission or otherwise we'll never get it done.
      Data: A coin. Very well, I will replicate one immediately.
