Funny: Star Trek: Insurrection
  • One of the best opening lines.
    Riker: Our guests have arrived. They are eating the floral arrangements on the banquet tables.
    Crusher: I guess they don't believe in cocktails before dinner.
    Troi: Oh, my God. Are they vegetarian? That's not in there!
    Picard: Perhaps we should have the chef whip up a light balsamic vinaigrette— Something that goes well with chrysanthemums.
  • "I seem to be missing several memory engrams." (Geordi shows Data several microchips he is holding) "...There they are."
  • Picard needs to get real, or get a new neck.
    Beverly Crusher: You either need a new uniform or a new neck.
    Picard: Euchene Chefaw. My collar size is exactly as it was at the Academy.
    Beverly Crusher: Of course it is.
  • In the event of a water landing, Data has been designed to serve as a flotation device.
  • How do Picard and Worf distract a crazy android? By singing, complete with Follow the Bouncing Ball.
    Picard: Mr. Worf, do you know Gilbert and Sullivan?
    Worf: No sir. I have not had a chance to meet all the new crew members since I have been back.
    • What sells the scene is Worf's panicked expression and shaking his head "NO!" before finally joining in.
    • When Data is reactivated and Picard asks him what he remembers, he immediately picks the song up where he left off.
      • The funniest thing about is that Geordi doesn't even bat an eyelash at this.
  • There's a really good bit when the bad guys decide to give up:
    Lieutenant: Sir, Ru'afo's ship is hailing us.
    Picard and Riker: On screen. (they exchange looks)
    Worf: Captain, the Son'a crew would like to negotiate a cease-fire. It may have something to do with the fact that we have three minutes of air left.
    Picard: We have plenty over here, Mr. Worf. Prepare to beam aboard.
  • "Have you noticed that your boobs have started to firm up?" - Data to Worf (It makes sense in context)
  • "Definitely feeling aggressive tendencies, sir!"
  • The moments between Data and Artim that aren't heartwarming - heck, even the funny moments are heartwarming!
    Data: I have to go home now.
    Artim: Okay, bye.
    Data: Bye.
  • After Deanna shaves off his beard, Riker meets up with Data and Picard on the way to the turbolift. At Data's startled look Riker remarks, to his clear consternation:
    Riker: Smooth as an android's butt, eh, Data?
    • But what really sells it is a few minutes later, after they've finished catching up on current events, when Data asks to touch Riker's newly-shaved face - and then just shakes his head smugly, and walks off.
