: I was happy living on Yadera Prime - that is, until the Dominion took over, and changed our whole way of life. And I realized one morning that I didn't really belong there anymore. So I came here, and I used a holo-generator to recreate all the things that I'd lost. I've lived here in my village for nearly thirty years. I've watched the people marry, have children, grow old. And sometimes I even forgot that they were holograms. But it's over. It's over; and I would appreciate it if you'd take me back to Yadera Prime. Odo
: But... what about the villagers, what about your granddaughter? Rurigan
: She's not real. Odo
: Technically I suppose you're right. Maybe, by our definition, Taya is not real; her memories are stored in a computer, her body is made up of omicron particles. But who is to say that our definition of life is the only valid one?
: I saw the way you held her hand when she was sad. I saw the way you tried to comfort her when she was frightened. Rurigan
: I-I didn't want her to get hurt. Odo
: If she's not real, what does it matter? Rurigan
: It matters. It matters to me. Odo
: Why should it matter to you if a hologram cries? Rurigan
: Because I love her.
: [after Dax has restored the holographic village with all its inhabitants
] We just have to get used to the fact that we're holograms. Rurigan
: We're alive and we have our families back, that's the only thing that counts. Colyus
: I wonder who created all this. Odo
: Whoever it was did a fine job. Colyus
: They did, didn't they?
