Kore: You told me stories of a mother!
Adam: It made you happy.
Kore: It wasn't real!
Adam: Real? Real? Reality is a construct of simple-minded fools who can't function n the absence of boundaries. Real. Anyone can procreate. You exist because I willed it.

Guinan: Q was talking about you, but he was talking about all of you. It's what's special about humans.
Picard: Yeah, our inability to escape the past.
Guinan: The opposite. When something inside you is broken, it stays with you. You live in the past until you're able to reconcile it, even if it's painful. You do the work because you want to evolve. I almost forgot how unique that is in the galaxy.

Wells: Whole life built around this job. Still, I knew I'd get the ax one day.

Wells: Man Who Cried Alien. And was wrong once again.

Wells: Kind of a waste of a life though.
Guinan: Maybe not. My species, we believe in an ebb and flow to things. That our destinies run apart and together. And that time is not what we think it is. And that some moments are meant to happen even at great cost. Perhaps you had to be that boy ...
Wells: So I could be this man here, letting you go? Something to think about.
