Star Trek: Insurrection (1998) (part 6 of 9)

Picard, Data and Worf walk down a corridor and are intercepted by a now clean-shaven Riker. He reports that Admiral Dougherty wants to know why they haven’t left orbit yet. Picard replies with a steely “We’re not going anywhere.” Worf then symbolically hands the title of “Walking Prop for Patrick Stewart to Act Against” over to Dr. Crusher, when he tells Picard she wants to speak with him.

In Sickbay, Crusher reports that while the Head-Staplers are refusing to be examined, the Starfleet personnel seem to be fine, even better than they were before. Picard says not to release the Head-Staplers until he speaks with Ru’afo. Then we get some limp humor about Riker’s new beardless look, where Riker even says the line, “Smooth as an android’s bottom, eh, Data?” This may be the most repulsive line of dialogue I’ve ever heard.
