Scott: "Do you mind a little advice? Starfleet captains are like
children. They want everything right now, and they want it their
way. But the secret is to give only what they need, not what they
want!" LaForge: "Yeah, well I told the captain I'd have this analysis
done in an hour." Scott: "How long would it really take?" LaForge:
"An hour!" Scott: "Oh, you didn't tell him how long it would *really*
take, did you?" LaForge: "Well of course I did." Scott: "Oh, laddie,
you've got a lot to learn if you want people to think of you as a
miracle worker!"
