"You know the Captain isn't going to like this, Data."
"I have an idea, you shall make the android hair look like a character from the Little Rascals, and I shall concoct a story about differing part numbers, together I calculate a 75%..."
"Shh, Data, here he comes! How's this look?"
"Suitably wacky, Commander."
Man it's a fucking good thing Worf wasn't there. Ti'PAR is one of the most offensive insults in the language. He would have been honor-bound to headbutt Riker right in the head!
Dang, sosage beat me to it.

Captain Picard clearly didn't vet his androids well enough before he had them steer his fucking command ship.
At least Data had productive functions. Ask yourself why they didn't just permanently dismantle the holodecks and turn the spaces into recreational areas that don't wig out and take over the ship, almost killing everyone on board every other episode.
SPOILER: This is actually Data's head. Because in this episode Data travels back in time to stop a group of alien ghosts from destroying 1880's San Fransisco with their secret weapon, a magic cane that turns into a snake. Data gets decapitated so they bury his head in a cave where he finds it 500 years later. But it's okay because Data had a spare head in his closet or something. The evil aliens are defeated by Mark Twain, who thinks this whole affair is just kooky.
Picard etching a message into Data's brain with a metal file, in binary.

Someone, on another video, made the astute observation that TNG would eventually be seen as just as corny as the original Star Trek given enough time. And this video is evidence.
There is really nothing particularly extraordinary or outlandish about this scene, in context. And yet, there is just something strangely hilarious about the delivery of the lines.
"Yes sir, Type-R."
