Dax: This is ridiculous, Ben! Are we really going to keep surrendering, endangering civilians, and running like little girls?
Sisko: No, and I really don't know what the Admirals were thinking with that strategy. We're going to retake Deep Space Nine or blow our special effects budget trying.
Dax: It's about time! What made up your mind?
Sisko: I have a sneaking suspicion that Dukat won't feed my fish. I want to get back there before they croak.
Dax: What about Jake?
Sisko: I'm pretty sure he can feed himself.
Heh heh heh.

Dukat: Ahh. Nothing like the sight of mine replication units being destroyed to make your day.
Weyoun: Yes, very nice.
Dukat: The window is over here.
Weyoun: Ah. Thank you. We Vorta have very weak eyesight, you know.
Dukat: Is that so? How many fingers am I holding up?
Weyoun: One, you bastard.
Dukat: I thought you said...
Weyoun: Oh, I didn't see it. I didn't need to.

Female Shapeshifter: I said "Leave us alone." I need to speak with Weyoun. Go wait in your quarters.
Odo: Certainly.

Weyoun: I'm sorry, I meant no disrespect.
Female Shapeshifter: Of course not. Here, have a Vorta Snack.

Good ones, all. Outta here for the weekend -- back Tuesday-ish. I'm guessing I'll probably have quite a bit to catch up on by then.

I noticed quite a number of Farpointy references in both.

That clarification does not help at all.

Not in the slightest. I don't think I made it past that level.

See, you regret NOT killing just as much as killing.

WOO! Cliffhanger Week is awesome!

No "AHHHHHH! CLIFF!"? I'm disappointed. Although number ten on that list litterally happened in one Doctor Who story, though it was one of the bizzarrest cliffhangers that Who has ever had.

Yeah yeah, the other stuff was good too I guess (spitballs, heh).
