My first impression of Data occurred in this episode---I saw him as the perfect friend for me. So childlike and free, yet so wise and mature.
And I still wonder what he and Tasha did behind her closed doors! What techniques did he use on her? Was she into roughhousing, or did she like just "gentleness", as she said she wanted "from you, Data..."
I imagine him the perfect lover and the perfect friend. His voice was so gentle: "I am sorry. I did not know." to Tasha's "Do you know how old I was when I was abandoned? Five. Five years old."
Gentleness, joy and love...
