Daily Star Trek Quote Challenge, 7/17/2006

- [Roars and suddenly stops] That is how the Klingon lures a mate.

- Are you telling me to go yell at Salia?

- No. Men do not roar. Women roar. Then they hurl heavy objects. And claw at you.

- What does the man do?

- He reads love poetry...He ducks a lot.

- Worf, it, it sounds like it works great for the Klingons, but I need to try something a little less...dangerous?

- Go to her door. Beg like a human.

Star Trek: The Next Generation
Episode 146: "The Dauphin"

[on the bridge with Data and other crew members present]
Worf: [Roars and suddenly stops] That is how the Klingon lures a mate.

Wesley: Are you telling me to go yell at Salia?

Worf: No. Men do not roar. Women roar. Then they hurl heavy objects. And claw at you.

Wesley: What does the man do?

Worf: He reads love poetry...He ducks a lot.

Wesley: Worf, it, it sounds like it works great for the Klingons, but I need to try something a little less...dangerous?

Worf: Go to her door. Beg like a human.

Never did like the Wesley Crusher character. And this exchange is particularly stupid. Wesley has asked how to approach a girl/woman. Rather than answer with what he, as a Klingon male, would do, Worf shows what to do if you are a Klingon female. And since Salia isn't a Klingon female, there's no reason Wesley should think it'd be dangerous. And love poetry? Right. Now that sounds more like Wesley.

Good points. Maybe Wesley came up and said, "How do Klingons approach each other when they're interested?" Then to make a dramatic example, Worf simply started roaring, suddenly stopped, etc. Also perhaps Wesley, being the quintessential nerd (book smart but knowing nothing of street life), was dense enough to think that Worf meant Salia should also act like a Klingon.

I didn't find Wesley too bad, just annoying. "Journey's End" was certainly awful, though.

Wesley's love poety, hmm.

Shall I compare thee to an isolinear chip?
Thou art more perfect in thy body's curves
And the symmetry of thine humanoid breasts
Please me more than any fractal pattern
