Memorable quotes

  • What, and miss all of the fun. This reminds me of when we were kids.
    Are you talking about our camp out on Deneva. Just as soon as we headed out, the planet’s weather modification system failed.
    Yeah, that’s how I remember. It poured the whole time, but we had a lot of fun.
    Jenna Carson and Susan Cassoday
  • Still, it seems like we keep running into obstacles in getting the com fixed.
    Compared to what we’ve been through, this is a piece of cake.
    Susan Cassoday amd Sonya Fiehrer
  • Maybe we could do something together after this is all over. We could both use a little leave, and I’m sure your brother-in-law would be more than happy to loan the Kennedy Compound to us.
    Bernie Tyler
  • Just like old times. So, what was it that attracted you to me in the first place.
    I’d say your infectious personality, great sense of humor, and your lovely figure.
    You men are all the same. At least you put personality and humor above looks.
    Still, looks certainly can’t hurt, and they certainly drew me in. I still remember this shy young ensign aboard the Tien An Men.”
    You approached me in the mess hall and asked if you could join me for my meal.
    I got you talking when we traded academy stories.
    Soon after that, I was spending most of my free time with you.
    And you hooked me with your personality.
    Bernie and Roslyn, on how they met
  • I bet 5 slips that Roslyn is in that turbocar as well.
    That’s too easy. Seven slips that they will be snogging each other when that lift opens on the bridge.
    Jenna and Sonya, on Bernie and Roslyn’s relationship
  • “I hate to interrupt; however, you just cost me seven strips of latinum.”
    “Sorry, captain, it won’t happen again.”
    Jenna and Bernie
