Lily Sloane Quotes in Star Trek: First Contact (1996)
Lily Sloane Quotes:
Lily Sloane: Jean Luc, blow up the damn ship!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: No! Noooooooooo!
[Smashes glass and model ships with his phaser]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I will not sacrifice the Enterprise. We've made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our space and we fall back. They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And *I* will make them pay for what they've done!
Lily Sloane: You broke your little ships.
[Picard takes the phaser from Lily, and inspects it]
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Maximum setting. If you had fired this, you would have vaporized me.
Lily Sloane: [sheepish] It's my first ray gun.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Six years ago, they assimiated me into their collective. I had their cybernetic devices implanted throughout my body. I was linked to the hive mind. Every trace of individuality erased. I was one of them. So you can imagine, my dear, I have a somewhat unique perspective on the Borg, and I know how to fight them. Now if you'll excuse me, I have work to do.
Lily Sloane: I am such an idiot. It's so simple. The Borg HURT you, and now you're going to HURT them back!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: In my century, we don't succumb to revenge. We have a more evolved sensibility.
Lily Sloane: BULLSHIT! I saw the look your face when you shot those Borg on the Holodeck. You were almost ENJOYING it!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How dare you.
Lily Sloane: Oh, come on, Captain. You're not the first man to get a thrill out of murdering someone! I see it all the time!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: GET OUT!
Lily Sloane: Or what? You'll kill me, like you killed Ensign Lynch?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: There was no way to save him.
Lily Sloane: You didn't even try! Where were your evolved sensibilities then?
Lily Sloane: You gotta go?
[Picard nods "Yes"]
Lily Sloane: I envy you... the world you're going to.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I envy YOU... taking these first steps into a new frontier. I shall miss you, Lily.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The economics of the future are somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th century.
Lily Sloane: No money? You mean, you don't get paid?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force of our lives. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity. Actually, we're all like yourself and Dr. Cochrane.
Lily Sloane: Borg? Sounds Swedish.
Lily Sloane: [after having seen the Borg] Definitely not Swedish.
[Lily and Zefram had a few too much to drink at a bar]
Lily Sloane: You're going to regret this tomorrow.
Dr. Zefram Cochrane: One of the things you should have learned about me by now is that I don't have regrets.
[leaving the bar, Cochrane pulls Lily back]
Dr. Zefram Cochrane: Come on, Lily. One more round.
Lily Sloane: [pulling Cochrane off her] Z, you've had enough. I'm not going up in that thing with a drunken pilot.
Dr. Zefram Cochrane: Well I sure as hell am not going up in there sober.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I don't have time for this.
Lily Sloane: Hey, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to interrupt your little quest. Captain Ahab has to go hunt his whale!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: What?
Lily Sloane: You do have books in the 24th century.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is not about revenge.
Lily Sloane: LIAR!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: This is about saving the future of humanity!
Lily Sloane: [threatening with a phaser] You want to help me? Get me out of here!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Alright. You want a way out? Here it is.
[Picard opens window, revealing the Earth far, far below]
Lily Sloane: What is this?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: Australia. New Guinea. Solomon Islands. Montana will be up soon, but you may want to hold your breath - it's a long way down!
Lily Sloane: [pointing a phaser] I don't care who you're with! Get me the hell out of here! NOW!
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: That's not going to be easy.
Lily Sloane: Well, you'd better find a way to make it easy, soldier, or I'm going to start PUSHING BUTTONS!
Lily Sloane: Watch your caboose, Dix.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I intend to.
