Episode Quotes


Beverly: "I couldn't even *guess* at your I.Q. level now."
Barclay: "Probably somewhere between twelve-hundred and fourteen-fifty."
Beverly: [to Barclay] "Lieutenant, you could very well be the most advanced human being who has ever lived."
Geordi: "What's he done? I mean, we're talking about locking a man up for being too smart."
Picard: "Has Mister Barclay done anything that could be considered... potentially threatening?"
Troi: "Well, he did make a pass at me last night ... a good one!"
Geordi: "I'd hardly consider that a threat."
Troi: "No, but it's certainly unusual behavior for Barclay."
Troi: "You've made tremendous progress."
Barclay: "I, uh, I, I guess."
Troi: "Don't you think so?"
Barclay: "Well, I just feel more comfortable, uh, playing somebody else. And maybe all of this, is, is, is not any better than, eh, escaping in, into a Holodeck fantasy."
Troi: "I disagree. This isn't fantasy, it's theatre. You used to withdraw onto the Holodeck. You isolated yourself inside your own imagination avoiding contact with real people. Look at yourself now. Look at all the other people you're with. You're not just acting, you're *interacting*."
Beverly: "Worf, I have an opening in my workshop."
Barclay: "Commander..."
LaForge: "Yeah, Reg?"
Barclay: "Thanks for uh, assigning me to this mission."
LaForge: "Don't mention it. You're one of my top engineers, it's about time you got in on some of the interesting stuff."
Barclay: "You shouldn't have to wait too long for the results."
Beverly: "What do you mean?"
Barclay: "Couldn't you use a global mode in your scanner? It would be a lot faster."
Beverly: "That's not possible. We're talking about human cells here, not isolinear circuits. I think you'd better stick to Engineering, Lieutenant."
Barclay: "A cell has an electromagnetic signature, just as a circuit element does. Theoretically, it should work, with just a few adjustments. I could set it up for you if you like."
Riker: "Mister Barclay, everyone is still trying to figure out exactly how you did it."
Barclay: "Well, it just occurred to me that I could set up a frequency harmonic between the deflector and the shield grid, using the warp-field generator as a power-flow anti-attainguator, and that of course, naturally created an amplification of the inherent energy output."
Riker: "Uh-huh, I see that."
Troi: "You know. almost everyone has a moment in their lives when they exceed their own limits, achieve what seems to be impossible."
Geordi: "The tricky part is what happens afterwards."
Troi: "You almost always feel a sense of loss, but it is possible to carry something of that experience through the rest of your life in ways that you aren't even aware of now."
Geordi: "It is almost impossible to tell where Barclay ends and the computer begins."
