Captain Janeway: “In case I never get a chance to say this: I realise that I’ve been hard on you at times, but it was never out of anger, or regret that I brought you on board. I’m your Captain. That means I can’t always be a friend. Understand?”

7 of 9: ” No. However, if we are assimilated, our thoughts will become one, and I’m sure I will understand perfectly. [to a shocked Janeway] A joke, Captain. You yourself have encouraged me to use my sense of humor.”
