Lt. Commander Data : In almost all societies, it is traditional to say a ritual farewell to those you call friends. I never knew what a friend was until I met Geordi. He spoke to me as though I were human. He treated me no differently from anyone else. He accepted me for what I am. And that, I have learned, is friendship.
Lt. Commander Data : But I do not know how to say goodbye.
[Data is asking Worf for advice about La Forge's and Ro's funeral; the "ghostly" La Forge and Ro are watching]
Lt. Commander Data : Ensign Ro was a Bajoran. Her beliefs should be reflected as well. However, their death rituals are quite complicated.
Ensign Ro Laren : [groans] Oh, please, not the death chant.
Lieutenant Worf : The Bajoran death chant is over two hours long.
