: You are evil. Captain Sisko
: I am a Starfleet officer, the paragon of virtue. Kasidy Yates
: You're more like a parody of virtue.
: Miss me? Captain Sisko
: Were you gone?
: I dropped my crew off at a Maquis base. I had to come back, but I didn't see any reason to drag them here just to face a prison sentence. Captain Sisko
: You didn't have to come back either. Kasidy Yates
: Yes - I did. And I think we both know that's why you left us alone out there - to see if I would.
: I'm not gonna stand here and apologize for what I did. You had your duty. I had mine. Captain Sisko
: I still have my duty. Kasidy Yates
: I know.
] Kasidy Yates
: I'll be back. Captain Sisko
: I'll be here.
: [after being sick
] Reports of my death have been exaggerated, but not by much. Ooh... Jake Sisko
: Isn't there something she can take to make her feel better? Captain Sisko
: She doesn't like taking medication, unless it's absolutely necessary. Kasidy Yates
: Ooohh...! Jake Sisko
: Sounds necessary to me.
: [discussing O'Brien's move to Earth
] Any idea where you're gonna live? O'Brien
: No, Keiko and I're still mulling over a few possibilities. Worf
: Have you ever considered Minsk? O'Brien
: I don't think that's on our list. Sisko
: New Orleans is a gorgeous city. Kasidy Yates
: I've heard great things about Paris. Worf
: Minsk. Lieutenant Ezri Dax
: Jadzia loved Rio. Odo
: Well, you've certainly got a lot of choices. O'Brien
: Yeah, too many, hm? Worf
: When will you be back? Captain Sisko
: It's hard to say - maybe a year, maybe... yesterday. But I will be back. Kasidy Yates
: And I will be waiting.
[Kasidy's last line of the series
] Kasidy Yates
: I was talking to your father.
: Maybe someday, I'll retire here. Kasidy Yates
: Ah! Oh, I could see you now - sitting in your rocking chair, watching the sun set over the mountains every night... wondering where you put your teeth. Captain Sisko
: Just like my great-great-grandfather - in the glass, next to the chair.
: From the moment I set foot on this station, nothing has turned out the way I imagined it. This was supposed to be just a temporary assignment. But it's become much more than that. I guess I was meant to come here. You see, it's almost like my... my... Kasidy Yates
: Destiny. Captain Sisko
: Destiny, yes. Kasidy Yates
: I guess when your mother turns out to be part Prophet or part wormhole alien or whatever it is you want to call her, words like 'destiny' begin to mean something.
: About the guest list - I wanted to keep it... small, just family and friends. Captain Sisko
: Well, that's fine by me, there's only room for 30 or 40 people in the wardroom. -... - Kasidy, what else do we need to talk about? I have the feeling we're forgetting something. Kasidy Yates
: You tell me. You're the one who's been married before. Captain Sisko
: Well, that's just it, it was a lot more complicated before. Kasidy Yates
: People get carried away with weddings. I... just want it to be nice and simple.
: Can I be one of your dais bearers? Kasidy Yates
: My what, honey? Saghi
: For the bridal procession. I know you can only choose 51 girls, but it would be such an honor for me. Kasidy Yates
: Well, um... Saghi
: People are saying it's gonna be the biggest wedding Bajor's ever seen. Kasidy Yates
: They are? Saghi
: The Emissary's getting married! Kasidy Yates
: Ben...? Captain Sisko
: [looking over to the Promenade...
] Kasidy... I think this is going to be a little more complicated than we thought.
[... where a crowd of Bajorans has gathered to catch a glimpse of the Emissary and his bride-to-be
[Kasidy has burned the dinner
] Captain Sisko
: What're you... you doing? You don't cook! Kasidy Yates
: I know; I was just making sure.
: From now on, *you* wear the apron in the family.
[Sisko has made up with Kasidy wih a bunch of flowers, when the door chimes
] Captain Sisko
: Ah, that must be Quark with the necklace. Kasidy Yates
: The necklace? Captain Sisko
: Just in case the flowers didn't work.
: I know that look. It's the I'd-really-like-to-smash-something-but-she'll-think-I'm-crazy look. Well, don't let me stop you - they're your quarters. Smash away if it'll make you feel better.
: [telling the story of him and Solok to Kasidy
] We were in the same class at the academy. One weekend, I was with some friends in a bar off campus, The Launching Pad, when Solok came in with a group of Vulcan cadets. Said they were doing research on 'illogical human bonding rituals'. We didn't take too kindly to that. Kasidy Yates
: And you'd had a few drinks. Captain Sisko
: One or two. Well, we got into a debate and Solok said that Vulcans were naturally superior to Humans and other 'emotionally handicapped species'. Of course, I took the opposite position. So there I am, drunk and debating logic versus emotion with a smug and very sober Vulcan. Well, to make a long story short, I decided that the best way to prove that Humans were every bit the equal of Vulcans was to challenge him to a wrestling match. Kasidy Yates
: Wrestling? Captain Sisko
: All I wanted to do was wipe that arrogant look off his face so with everyone watching, in the heat of the moment, I challenged him. Kasidy Yates
: And? Captain Sisko
: I ended up in the infirmary with a separated shoulder, two cracked ribs and a very bruised ego. Kasidy Yates
] Oh Ben! I don't mean to laugh but what did you expect? A Vulcan has three times the strength of a human. Captain Sisko
] And they're faster too. But you're right - I got what I deserved. And if it had ended right there it would've been fine. But it didn't. Solok took every opportunity to remind me about our match. He used to point me out whenever I walked across the campus. In fact, he wrote 5 psychology papers about our match. I became the living embodiment of why Vulcans were inherently superior to Humans. Kasidy Yates
: You don't mean he was gloating? A Vulcan? Captain Sisko
: That's exactly what I mean. He may have hidden it beneath that Vulcan calm of his, but he loved every minute of it. And you'd think that once we graduated it would have stopped. But it didn't. Over the years, Solok wrote over a dozen papers on Vulcan/Human comparative profiles, and at the beginning of every paper is an analysis of that damn wrestling match. Kasidy Yates
: And now he comes to your station and announces that he's put together a baseball team. Captain Sisko
: Solok doesn't care about baseball. All he wants to do is rub it in my nose on more time but this time he's using my game. My game!
: Alright Niners! Let's hear some chatter! Hey batter! Kasidy Yates
: Hey batter batter batter batter batter! Leeta
: Hey batter batter batter batter batter batter! Worf
: Death to the opposition!
: You know, I was thinking about what Dax said. Maybe I should get quarters on the station. Captain Sisko
: That's a big step. Kasidy Yates
: What does that mean? Captain Sisko
: I just meant... it's a big step. Kasidy Yates
: A bad big step or a good big step? Captain Sisko
: A good one. Kasidy Yates
: Could you muster up a little more enthusiasm? Captain Sisko
: I *am* enthusiastic!
: I think you should take the job, I... *want* you to take the job. Kasidy Yates
: You've been talking to Jake. Captain Sisko
: How do you know? Kasidy Yates
: Oh, he's a smart boy. Must take after his mother.
: Look... I could stay here and listen to you apologize all day. But I've got to get to Bajor. Captain Sisko
: Bajor? I-I thought... Kasidy Yates
: Oh - I know what you thought. But I took the job. Do you think I'd give up a great opportunity just because *you* got cold feet? You're a good man, Benjamin Sisko. But you got a lot to learn about women - especially this one.
: There are times when I just can't figure you out. Captain Sisko
: Well - maybe that's part of the attraction. Kasidy Yates
: Believe that if you want to.
: You want to know... you *really* want to know what my problem is? I'll tell you: Las Vegas 1962, that's my problem. In 1962, black people weren't very welcome there. Oh sure, they could be performers or janitors, but customers? Never. Kasidy Yates
: Maybe that's the way it was in the real Vegas, but that is not the way it is at Vic's. I have never felt uncomfortable there, and neither has Jake. Captain Sisko
: But don't you see? That's the lie. In 1962, the civil rights movement was still in its infancy. It wasn't an easy time for our people, and I'm not going to pretend that it was. Kasidy Yates
: Baby - I know that Vic's isn't a totally accurate representation of the way things were, but... it isn't meant to be. It shows us the way things could've been - the way they should've been. Captain Sisko
: We cannot ignore the truth about the past. Kasidy Yates
: Going to Vic's isn't going to make us forget who we are or where we came from. What it does is reminds us that we are no longer bound by any limitations - except the ones we impose on ourselves.
: If you're gonna do something, do it right; that's what my father used to say. Captain Sisko
: Every father says that. Even I say that. Kasidy Yates
: That's why you're a good parent. You know all the clichés by heart.
: [about Bashir, who is sparing with words
] There was a time when you couldn't get him to shut up. Captain Sisko
: I think I like him better this way. Kasidy Yates
: That's mean. Captain Sisko
: I was just kidding. Kasidy Yates
: No - you weren't.

: Ben, I can't say I understand what you've gone through. I know you feel you've lost something important, and maybe you have. But believe me...
[she takes Jake by the hand

: ...you've held on to something important as well.
[she takes Ben's hand as well, and joins it together with his son's

: A baby.
