[last lines]

Ro Laren: I was raised with Bajoran beliefs. And I even followed some of the practices. But I never really believed in a life after death. And then suddenly I was dead... and there was this other life. And that made me feel like I'd been pretty arrogant, to discount everything I'd been taught, you know? Now I don't know what to believe.

Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Hmm... Well, maybe we should develop our own interphase device. If it can teach Ro Laren humility, it can do anything.

[both laugh heartily]

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.

[pause]

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.

Lieutenant Worf: I am very happy for Commander La Forge. He has crossed over to that which is beyond. For a Klingon, this is a joyful time. A friend has died in the line of duty, and he has earned a place among the honored dead. It is not a time to mourn.

Ensign Ro Laren: [visiting Picard in his ready room] Captain...

[stops short, not knowing what to say]

Ensign Ro Laren: I don't believe this. I'm dead. You can't even hear me, and I'm still intimidated by you.

Captain Jean-Luc Picard: I've been thinking about the first time I met Geordi La Forge. He was a young officer, assigned to pilot me on an inspection tour. And I made some offhand remark about the... shuttle's engine efficiency not being what it should. And the next morning I found that... he'd stayed up all night refitting the fusion initiators. Well, I knew then that I wanted to have him with me on my next command.

Lt. Commander Data: Do you think the others will find this service appropriate?

Doctor Beverly Crusher: Look around you, Data. Everybody's sharing their memories of Geordi and Ro, laughing and talking. What could be more appropriate than that?
