Picard: Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again.

Riker: Speak for yourself sir, I plan to live forever.

Kirk: Oh, be quiet.

Scotty: Finding retirement a little lonely, are we?
Kirk: You know, I’m glad you’re an engineer. With tact like that, you’d make a lousy psychiatrist.

Dr. Soran: Normal is what everyone else is and you are not.

Kirk: I take it the odds are against us and the situation is grim.
Picard: You could say that.
Kirk: Sounds like fun!
