When Riker indignantly asks Troi whether it's obvious to her that Mrs. Apgar is lying, her tactful response leaves unsaid something I'd really not noticed until now.

In Riker's deposition, he portrays himself as a paragon of virtue, a business-first-and-only type—which we know from having watched the series is not entirely accurate. Apgar's widow insists he tried to ravish her, while his version of events shows him nobly fending her off and attempting to stay on point of purpose for their visit.

We've all heard the phrase, "Your version, my version, and the truth."

I've finally realized that she at first came on to him (though possibly as a result of some Riker wattage directed her way), he was quite willing (but perhaps a bit reluctant with Apgar on the premises), and that the professor interrupted them minutes before they would have been in flagrante delecto.

He certainly didn't deserve to die for it, but ... Riker's perfectly capable of banging an older man's frustrated wife.

And that's exactly what he was going to do.

I wager Apgar's grievance, at least on this score, would have been justified.

If you're one of those bitter US soccer fans that refuses to root for Mexico ... grow the Hell up.
