Major Kira: Odo, I know you don't need to eat. But did you ever try it anyway?
Odo: Once, not long after I was first able to assume the humanoid form.
Major Kira: And?
Odo: And since I don't have taste buds, it was very unsatisfying, not to mention... messy.
Major Kira: Messy?
Odo: I'd rather not talk about it.
Major Kira: [introducing] This is Tiron, a... business associate of Quark's. This is Odo - my lover.
Tiron: Well... You're a very lucky man.
Major Kira: I'm... a lucky woman.
Odo: [bewildered] Yes - we're both very lucky.
Tiron: So, Mr. Odo, what is it that you do?
Odo: I'm Chief of Security on this station.
Tiron: Oh. A station this size must be a very challenging job. I hope you're well compensated.
Major Kira: Oh, money doesn't matter. All we need is each other. Isn't that right - sweetheart?
Odo: Yes - sweetheart.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: The gravimetric distortions are intensifying. But they don't seem to be coming from the star itself.
Chief O'Brien: But where else could they be coming from? There aren't any planets in this system.
[the Defiant receives a heavy jolt, and before her appears a planet out of nowhere]
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: There are now...
Seltin Rakal: We were just about to sit down for First Meal. Why don't you join us?
Commander Sisko: We'd like that. I just need to know your planet is not going to disappear in the middle of dessert.
[Deral gives Dax a fruit to taste]
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: It's delicious.
Deral: Especially if you've been looking forward to it for sixty years.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Sixty years?
Chief O'Brien: Phew - that's a long time between meals.
Deral: I was admiring... your markings. Are they decorative?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: No. Are yours?
Deral: No. If you don't mind my asking... how far down do they go?
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: All the way.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: How about this? We work for a few more hours, and then we go back to your room and count each other's spots.
Deral: Can I go first?
Deral: Ever since my wife died, everyone's been wondering when I was gonna find myself another companion.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Why haven't you?
Deral: I guess I was waiting for the right woman to fall out of the sky.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: [laughs] That doesn't happen too often.
Deral: It only had to happen once...
[Quark is honoring Kira as his one millionth customer]
Major Kira: Quark, I don't have time for this!
Major Kira: [pointing at the next customer] Why don't you make him your one millionth customer?
Quark: But Major, that would be dishonest.
Major Kira: That never stopped you before!
Major Kira: What do you think you're doing, Quark?
Major Kira: Then what's this?
Quark: Oh, you mean this holo-imager? I was just recording the image of the Promenade to send home to my mother.
Major Kira: You're trying to take a holo-scan of me, and I wanna know why.
Quark: Of you? Not at all! You just happened to get in the frame.
Quark: Will you stop doing that?
Odo: Not until you start telling the truth.
[Dax has decided to stay with Deral on Meridian for the next 60-year cycle]
Commander Sisko: Next time we see each other, I'll probably be a great-grandfather.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: [laughs] Good, then I can call *you* 'old man'.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Tell Quark I'll be back to collect the three strips of gold latinum he owes me - with sixty years interest.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: After eight lifetimes as a humanoid, existing as pure consciousness... might be interesting.
Commander Sisko: Jadzia, I'm sorry.
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Benjamin, don't. There's nothing you can do, er... I just need some time.
[Sisko acknowledges and leaves]
Lieutenant Jadzia Dax: Just sixty years or so...
