Datalore        Season 1        Episode 12**
Scene: Lore pours Data a glass of champagne.

Elementary, Dear Data        Season 2        Episode 3*
Scene: Data carries the piece of paper off of the holodeck.

Blooper: If the paper was like any other holo-object, it should have dissolved as soon as data left the holodeck, but it continued to exist long after he exited.

[Note: This happens many times in Star Trek. It could be explained in the episode "Encounter at farpoint", when Data explains to Riker how the holodeck works similiar to a replicator. I'll let you decide for yourself]
