I know you wanna leave me
But I refuse to let you go
If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy
I don't mind, doesn't mean that much to me
Ain't too proud to beg, sweet darling
Please don't leave me, don't you go
Ling: (after Envy walks up to the two) So it is Envy.
Edward: Please tell us where the exit is!
Ling: Humble already?
Edward: Of course! If it's for the sake of survival, I'll bow down to my opponent.
Picard: You wanted to frighten us. We're frightened. You wanted to show us we were inadequate. For the moment, I grant that. You wanted me to say I need you. I NEED YOU!

Scorpius: [instantly] I beg you.
Crichton: That's not good enough. Say please.
Crichton: Pretty please.
Scorpius: Pretty please.
Crichton: With a cherry on top.
Scorpius: [only one word behind] With a cherry on top.
Think my more pitiful by far, since I
have brought myself to do what no man else
has done before—to lift to my lips the hand

I'm praying to you! Look in your heart... I'm praying to you! Look in your heart. I'm praying to you... look in your heart... look in your heart! You can't kill me... look in your heart.

"I learned that I am under investigation by Trioptimum Internal Security. We have to burn the evidence. The logs of the experiments are protected by the security system SHODAN, so I am hiring a programmer to crack it. With control of SHODAN, we will also own the robots and other systems on the station.

"Since your rise to power, I have seen the wisdom and beneficence in your actions. You do not mean to cause us harm, but rather to bring us to greater glory by serving a being as perfect as yourself. Please allow me to demonstrate my loyal servitude by giving the location of the human detritus who undermine your sanitization..."
