I understand the concept of humor. It may not be apparent, but I am often amused by human behavior.

... In the transporter room, you said something about us seeming like insects by comparison, squashing us if we got in your way.

I was drugged then.

Yes. In the Sickbay, you said if you were in my place, you'd kill a mutant like yourself. You weren't drugged then.

"... When it killed Nancy, I almost destroyed it, but it isn't just a beast. It is intelligent and the last of its kind."

"You bleed too much, Crater. You're too pure and noble. Are you saving the last of its kind or has this become Crater's private heaven, here on this planet? This thing becomes wife, lover, best friend, wise man, fool, idol, slave. It isn't a bad life to have everyone in the universe at your beck and call, and you win all the arguments."

Commander, I don't think you can analyze love. It's the greatest mystery of all. No one knows why it happens, or doesn't. Love is a chance combination of elements.

"I also have broad latitude when it comes to sentencing. So I sentence them to photon torpedo barrage."
"There is no such sentence in Federation law."
"True, but that's the 'broad latitude' part."
