Picard: "What are you looking at?"
Data: "I am not looking at anything, sir. I am continuing to organize my files."
Picard: "But you were looking at me."

On Vulcan the "teddy bears" are alive, and they have 6-inch fangs.

"Ask him a question only the REAL CAPTAIN KIRK WOULD KNOW!"

Oh, wait, that's not an actual Star Trek quote. That's just what I scream at the TV every time Turnabout Intruder comes on.

When it comes to understanding temporal paradoxes, Ensign, my advice is: Don't even try.

Quark: Mog, don't get mixed up in Federation affairs! They're not civilized like us! Oh sure, they can act all friendly and agreeable, but trust me, take away their creature comforts and they can become as irritated and dangerous as the most bloodthirsty Klingon!

Capt. Kirk: ...the unfortunate accident he had as a child. He caught his head in a mechanical... rice picker... but, fortunately, there was an American missionary living close by who was actually a, uh, skilled, uh, plastic surgeon in civilian life...

This didn't sound quite right to me, so I checked IMDb.com. It was:

Lieutenant Commander Data: Captain, I believe I am feeling... anxiety. It is an intriguing sensation. A most distracting...

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data, I'm sure it's a fascinating experience, but perhaps you should deactivate your emotion chip for now.

Lieutenant Commander Data: Good idea, sir. [beep] Done.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Data, there are times that I envy you.

To which of course Spock shortly afterwards replied "Live long and prosper" in such a manner that it seemed that it should have concluded "...and the horse you rode in on".

Don't you people from the 24th century ever pee?

You didn't expect to find me! You thought this was... Ceti Alpha 6. (Then, with tremendous menace) Why...are you here?

Admiral Kirk! Admiral...

Of all the souls I have encountered in my travels, his was the most... human.

Data to Q upon learning he was punished by becoming a human: "It means you have achieved in disgrace what I have always aspired to be."

Spock: I am receiving a number of distress calls.
McCoy: I don't doubt it.

Resistance is futile.

You are wrong! Jackson Roykirk, your creator, is dead. You have mistaken me for him. You are in error. You did not discover your mistake. You have made two errors. You are flawed and imperfect and you have not corrected by sterilisation. You have made three errors.

And he piled upon the whale's white hump, the sum of all the rage and hate felt by his whole race. If his chest had been a cannon, he would have shot his heart upon it.
