I was going to say "isn't it lovely that you used a quote from Firefly for your subject header", but I thought perhaps not... Seriously, though, when Dr McCoy said that to Data, you didn't see the bit just off camera. See, it wasn't just McCoy who was visiting the Enterprise D; Kirk was there too, incognito because everyone still thought he'd died when someone dropped a bridge on him, even though of course that's ridiculous. So McCoy's full line was actually "Treat her like a lady -- no, not like you treat a lady, Jim. Or else, treat her like Jim treats his toupee, and she'll alway bring you home." But that got cut 'cos the episode was running over time. So now you know!

Wil, I know you love short-short-short fiction (by which standard your 2700 words is the complete works of Robert Jordan) so you might like a little project I set up years ago and then kind of forgot about until recently: http://www.facefic.com/. The elevator pitch is: Facebook status updates are limited to 420 characters. That's enough space to write a story, surely? Surely! This comment is an example! Check it out.

Hey Wil, I feel I should come out of the closet here as someone who liked Wesley Crusher and was pleased to see him mature over time, although I can certainly see why your deep and burning hatred for the writers continues to this day, cos you know nobody likes being cast as Scrappy Doo, even if it's only cos there was a Writers' Strike that messed up the schedules. But you did good. I just wanted to pass on something that I wrote many years ago that I think you'd get a kick out of, even though it doesn't actually feature Wesley. It's a filk, specifically a rewrite of a certain venerable Queen song, all about the day that we all felt sure would come eventually: when Worf went power-mad and tried to take command of the Enterprise! Featuring the line, "I'm just a blind boy / Aided prosthetic'ly...": Dilithium Rhapsody Hope you enjoy it!

Among the bards and minstrels of the Society for Creative Anachronism, we have a little saying, directed at those people foolish enough to mistreat the loudest and most articulate communicators in our little club and think they can get away with it: Meddle not in the affairs of bards, for they are subtle and quick to anger, and your name scans to Greensleeves. Which is to say: if you're going to be a bastard to anyone, don't pick the one group of people who can immortalise your perfidy (and your undersized genitalia) in song and story for eternity.
