* In the same episode, Picard making a smiley face in the [[TimeStandsStill extremely slow-moving]] warp coolant (pictured at top).
** Though considering Picard is suffering SanitySlippage at that point, the GallowsHumor also comes off as NightmareFuel.
* "He just kept talking in one long incredibly unbroken sentence moving from topic to topic so that no-one had a chance to interrupt; it was really quite hypnotic."
* There's also this gem:
-->'''Troi''' [''impersonating Dr. Mizan'']: "So, Dianne... I understand you're an empath. I'm a very [''winks broadly''] sensitive man, myself. I'm doing a thesis on interspecies mating rituals. Would you care to join me in some empirical research?

* After the crew regains their memories, Riker comes into Ten-Forward to find Ro and Troi chatting at a table. This wouldn't normally be frightening, but given that [[spoiler: he and Ro spent the night together during the memory loss,]] the look of trepidation on his face when he sees them is priceless. As is the subsequent scene where the two of them proceed to torture him.
--> '''Ro:''' ''(deadpan)'' Commander, don't worry about it. As far as I'm concerned, you and I have shared something that we will treasure forever. ''(leaves)''\\

* While Clara and her ''friend'' Isabella are having a race through the corridors, they run straight into Worf. Worf turns out to be a softy and lets them off with a warning. Only Isabella has been startled to the point of being petrified, so Clara has to drag her along when they leave.

* Picard's reaction to the chaos is quite possibly the best part. His back is to the camera, so Riker assumes that Picard has reached his limit, but then the captain turns around laughing with the biggest grin on his face. Coming from Patrick Stewart just makes it adorable as well as hilarious.
