"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Strange Bedfellows (#7.19)" (1999)
Damar: Overconfidence - the hallmark of the Weyouns.

Damar: You expect me to agree to territorial concessions, when I haven't even seen what they are?
Weyoun: Damar, you are missing the point. We need the Breen to win this war. When it's over, there will be more than enough territories available to compensate Cardassia for the loss of a few minor planets.
Damar: There're no minor planets in the Cardassian Union.

Damar: [after Worf has killed Weyoun 7] They'll just make another copy of him, you know. You should've killed me. There's only one Damar.
Lt. Commander Worf: I will keep that in mind.

Weyoun: The Founder - she wishes to see me. She has to be told about this.
Damar: Oh, I'm sure she'll understand. But if she doesn't, I look forward to meeting Weyoun 9.

[Weyoun's latest clone enters]
Damar: Well, hello!
[chuckles heartily]
Weyoun: I'm glad to see you find the death of my predecessor so amusing.
Damar: Oh, you misjudge me. I miss him deeply. Here, let's drink to Weyoun 7!

[Damar helps Dax and Worf to escape]
Lt. Commander Worf: Why are you doing this?
Damar: I want you to give a message to the Federation: tell them they have an ally here on Cardassia.
Lt. Commander Worf: Why should we trust you?
Damar: You can either trust me, or you can stay here and be executed.
Lieutenant Ezri Dax: I vote for Option One.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Changing Face of Evil (#7.20)" (1999)
[Damar, the Cardassian leader, speaks to his people]
Damar: And so two years ago, our government signed a treaty with the Dominion. In it the Dominion promised to extend Cardassia's influence throughout the Alpha Quadrant. In exchange, we pledged ourselves to join the war against the Federation and its allies. Cardassians have never been afraid of war, a fact we've proven time and again over these past two years. Seven million of our brave soldiers have given their lives to fulfill our part of the agreement, and what has the Dominion done in return? Nothing. We've gained no new territories. In fact, our influence throughout the quadrant has diminished. And to make matters worse, we are no longer masters in our own home. Travel anywhere in Cardassia and what do you find? Jem'Hadar, Vorta, and now Breen. Instead of the invaders, we have become the invaded. Our allies have conquered us without firing a single shot. Well, no longer. This morning, detachments of the Cardassian First, Third and Ninth Orders attacked the Dominion outpost on Rondac III. This assault marks the first step toward the liberation of our homeland, from the true oppressors of the Alpha Quadrant. I call upon Cardassians everywhere. Resist. Resist today. Resist tomorrow. Resist till the last Dominion soldier has been driven from our soil!

Weyoun: There's something... different about you today, Damar, I can't quite put my finger on it. It's almost as if you're only... half-dressed...
Damar: What're you talking about?
Weyoun: [with fake realization] You don't have a bottle in your hand!

Damar: The Dominion victories are no longer our victories.

Damar: [Weyoun has left the command center, leaving Damar alone with the Breen] By the way, in case Weyoun neglected to mention it, the Dominion once sang Cardassia's praises as well.
[garbled Breen question]
Damar: That's really quite simple. They expected the war to be over long ago; it's not. For that, they blame us. Now, if the war isn't ended soon, they'll shift the blame to you.
[garbled Breen statement]
Damar: Maybe so. But win or lose, I wouldn't turn my back on Weyoun if I were you.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Sacrifice of Angels (#6.6)" (1997)
Damar: I'd like to toss that smug little Vorta out the nearest airlock. And his Founder with him.
Gul Dukat: [laughs] Now, now, Damar, that's no way to talk about our valued allies. Not until this war is over, anyway.

Gul Dukat: Victory was within our grasp!
Damar: We have to evacuate the station, sir!
Gul Dukat: Bajor! The Federation! the Alpha Quadrant! All lost!

Damar: The wormhole is opening.
[Only one ship emerges from the wormhole]
Damar: The Defiant!
Gul Dukat: Our reinforcements must be right behind.
[the wormhole closes]
Damar: No, sir. There's no sign of them.
Weyoun: That's... impossible! Check our listening posts in the Gamma Quadrant.
Damar: They're not they're either.
Gul Dukat: But they entered the wormhole... where are they?
Damar: I don't know!
[the station rocks]
Damar: The Defiant has opened fire on us!
Weyoun: [sardonically] Obviously!

Damar: You don't have anything to hide, do you?
[Looks at Leeta as she walks past]
Damar: You certainly don't.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Tacking Into the Wind (#7.22)" (1999)
Colonel Kira: [after another argument with Rusot] You gonna do something about him?
Damar: I am. I'm giving him my support.

[Damar's family has been killed]
Damar: To kill her and my son - the casual brutality of it, the waste of life... What kind of state tolerates the murder of innocent women and children? What kind of people give those orders?
Colonel Kira: Yeah, Damar, what kind of people give those orders...?

Damar: [of Rusot] He was my friend. But his Cardassia is dead, and it won't be coming back.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Favor the Bold (#6.5)" (1997)
Quark: One kanar. Want me to leave the bottle?
Damar: Maybe I should have you taste it first - make sure it isn't poisoned.
Quark: Poisoning the customers is bad for business.
Damar: True. But some people may place their brother's revenge above business.
Quark: Not this Ferengi.

Damar: That attitude of yours, Major - it won't be tolerated forever.
Major Kira: You don't like my attitude, Damar? You're welcome to try to change it.

Ziyal: It should be obvious, even to you, Damar, that I am not a true daughter of Cardassia!
Damar: What is obvious to me is that your father should have left you to rot in that Breen prison camp. But he didn't. He took pity on you, and it's your duty to repay him. Now come with me!
Major Kira: Let her go.
Damar: And if I don't? What happens then?
Major Kira: I was hoping you'd ask.
[bashes Damar up until he goes down]
Ziyal: Did you kill him?
Major Kira: No. But I thought about it.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Dogs of War (#7.24)" (1999)
Mila: Everyone's talking about Damar and his rebels.
Colonel Kira: What are they saying? How stupid we were for walking into a Dominion trap?
Damar: How arrogant we were to think we could beat them in the first place?
Garak: How glad they are that we're all dead?
Mila: Actually, they don't really believe you *are* dead. Oh, you should hear the stories: "Damar is alive!" "My cousin saw him on Kelvas Prime." "He faked his own death." "He is plotting a new offensive from his secret mountain hideaway."
Garak: You never told me you had a secret mountain hideaway.
Damar: I was going to surprise you.

Jem'Hadar: Surrender yourself or die!
Damar: I choose neither.
[the Jem'Hadar soldiers are killed]

Damar: Citizens of Cardassia, hear me! The Dominion told you that the rebellion has been crushed. What you have seen here today proves that that is yet another lie. Our fight for freedom continues, but it will take place here, in the streets. I call on Cardassians everywhere to rise up, rise up and join me. I need *you* to be my army! If we stand together, nothing can oppose us. Freedom is ours for the taking!
Garak: Freedom!
Lonar: Freedom!
Cardassians: Freedom!

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Tears of the Prophets (#6.26)" (1998)
Weyoun: Pah-wraiths and Prophets. All this talk of gods strikes me as nothing more than superstitious nonsense.
Damar: You believe that the Founders are gods, don't you?
Weyoun: That's different.
Damar: [laughs] In what way?
Weyoun: The Founders *are* gods.

Damar: [watching the battle turn their favor] I believe you owe me an apology.
Weyoun: I believe you're right.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Image in the Sand (#7.1)" (1998)
Damar: I'd offer you a glass, but I know how much you dislike kanar.
Weyoun: I'm beginning to think you like it too much.
Damar: I wouldn't trust a Cardassian that didn't enjoy a glass of kanar every once in a while.

Damar: You ever wonder what goes on? Inside the wormhole, I mean?
Weyoun: ...Not really.
Damar: The Prophets and the Pah-wraiths locked in some form of celestial battle. It's fascinating.
Weyoun: I'd never realized you had such a vivid imagination.
Damar: Th' a lot about me you don't know.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: What You Leave Behind (#7.25)" (1999)
Ekoor: [after saving Damar, Kira and Garak from execution] Legate Damar, I pledge my life to free Cardassia from the Dominion.
Damar: With men like you on our side - how can we fail?

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: In the Pale Moonlight (#6.19)" (1998)
Damar (Hologram): Gul Dukat is a great man.
Weyoun (Hologram): Gul Dukat is a preening egotist and a fool.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 'Til Death Do Us Part (#7.18)" (1999)
Dukat: What happened to that brave officer I served with? The one who stood at my side while we fought the entire Klingon Empire with a single ship?
Damar: Those were simpler times.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Penumbra (#7.17)" (1999)
Weyoun: Damar.
Damar: Yes?
Weyoun: What's wrong with you? You're distracted.
Damar: Am I?
Weyoun: You've been pacing back and forth all morning.
Damar: ...Just trying to stay warm.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Treachery, Faith, and the Great River (#7.6)" (1998)
Damar: Clones - keeping track of them is a full-time job.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Waltz (#6.11)" (1998)
Gul Dukat: [about his dealings with the Bajorans during the Occupation] On and on it went, year after blood-soaked year. Time and again I would reach out with an open hand of friendship, and time and again they would slap it away.
Damar: The Bajorans understand a clenched fist, not an open hand.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Statistical Probabilities (#6.9)" (1997)
Weyoun: Odo...!
Odo: Yes, I know. I honor you with my presence.
Weyoun: We... seem to have gotten ourselves lost.
Odo: M-hm. They're not coming.
Damar: Who's not coming?
Odo: I had a feeling you were going to say that.

"Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Call to Arms (#5.26)" (1997)
Damar: Sir, the station shields are holding.
Weyoun: Impossible, Federation shields have always proven useless against our weapons.
Gul Dukat: I've found it wise to never underestimate the Federation's technical skill - or Captain Sisko's resourcefulness.
