Quark and Rom are in a panic when the Ferengi liquidator posts a writ of accountability on the bar's walls. It's only after a couple of bribes does Quark find out what they're charged with. They're held accountable for criminal activities of their mother Ishka. Apparently she's been wearing other and earning profits, both strictly forbidden for Ferengi women. Quark is required by law to convince her to sign a confession and reveal her accomplices. Failure will result in her being placed in servitude and Quark will have to make restitution for her crimes, a prospect he doesn't fancy. Meanwhile, Jake tells his father the freighter captain Kasidy Yates is back on the station. He really wants them both to meet and wants to arrange dinner. Sisko wants to take it more easy and do things his own way. Written by
