Whoa. In "Hollow Pursuits" we have this dialog (emphasis mine):
BARCLAY: I just didn't know what to say.
TROI: What do you wish you had said?
BARCLAY: I should have told him to mind his own damned business. I knew about the flux capacitor. I didn't need to hear about it from some seventeen year old kid.
TROI: You're letting it get you much too upset.
BARCLAY: You think so?
BARCLAY: I, I, I realise that
LAFORGE: But we shouldn't ignore the possibilities, Wes.
WESLEY: You ought to check the flow capacitor. A breakdown of that could have caused a chain collapse of the antigrav fields.
BARCLAY: I, I was going to.
LAFORGE: Good. Okay, then let's go over the realignment procedure. Gentlemen.
So what's behind this? It appears either someone misspoke or Barclay was confused. Was the script written this way? Is it an Easter egg? By whom -- the writers or Dwight Schultz?
