Star Trek: Deep Space Nine “Let He Who Is Without Sin...” (part 6 of 7)

Cut to Worf in his room, staring at a Whorega’hn as Dax enters in a lovely purple slip. She asks if he’s coming to bed, but unfortunately, it’s time for Banal Couple Argument #786, which is centered around how Dax is “too impulsive” sometimes, and has “no self-control”. Worf makes a point to mention, as he will do about a million times over the course of the series, that Jadzia is his par’machkai, which I guess is the Klingon equivalent of “Imzadi”—and if that’s the case, then par’machkai, my ass!—and everything she does makes him look bad. But, of course, neither one of them is going to change who they are to please the other. Blah blah blah, zzzz. Dax goes to bed, and Worf sits there thinking. You know, I appreciate the attempt to humanize the characters, and make them seem more like regular people, but there must be a better way to do it besides boring the crap out of me and simultaneously cribbing dialogue from a thirtysomething episode.
