Quark: [285th Rule of Acquisition] No good deed ever goes unpunished.
Odo: Secretary Kubus! Last I heard, you were living on Cardassia.
Kubus: I decided it was time to come home.
Odo: Welcome back. You're under arrest.
[Kubus, a former collaborator, has requested that he be allowed to return to Bajor, which Kira denies]
Kubus: Major! I'm an old man. I don't have many years left. What's the harm of letting me live them out on Bajor?
Major Kira: When the Cardassians needed a new group of Bajorans to work in the mines, who approved those work orders?
Kubus: The Bajoran government.
Major Kira: Whose signature was on those authorization forms?
Kubus: [after some hesitation] Mine.
Major Kira: And you had to know that those authorizations were death sentences. Did you ever *once* refuse to sign them?
Kubus: [shakes his head] No.
Major Kira: And that's why you can never be allowed to set foot on Bajor again. Because if you do, it would dishonor the memory of every person you sentenced to death.
[Kira and Odo are paying Quark a visit]
Quark: Whatever she told you, I didn't do it.
Odo: Relax, Quark, no one's accusing you of anything.
Quark: Huh... The day's still young.
Quark: You want something from me, don't you?
Major Kira: How'd you guess?
Odo: It's simple: we've been here more than a minute, and we haven't insulted him, threatened him or arrested him.
Vedek Winn: [to a group of children] Remember now: honor the Prophets, and they will always love you.
[the children leave]
Vedek Bareil: As I understand the Sacred Texts, the Prophets' love is unconditional. They ask nothing in return.
Vedek Winn: Thank you, Vedek Bareil, for reminding us how the Sacred Text can be so easily misinterpreted.
Vedek Bareil: Nothing pleases me more than providing you with an opposing viewpoint, Vedek Winn.
Vedek Winn: Somehow you never fail to do that.
Major Kira: What brings you to the station, Vedek Winn?
Vedek Winn: My child, if I thought the Prophets wanted you to know the purpose of my visit, I would have informed you of it in advance.
Major Kira: Well, now that I know you're here, I'll be sure to inform Constable Odo to increase station Security.
Vedek Winn: That won't be necessary. I feel quite safe here.
Major Kira: No, it wasn't... *your* safety that concerned me.
Vedek Winn: My child, I know you still hold me responsible for the deplorable attempt on Vedek Bareil's life. But I can only pray that someday, you'll be cured of this unfortunate misconception.
Major Kira: Well, that's one prayer that will never be answered.
[in Bareil's orb experience, Kira cuts a man loose who has hung himself]
Major Kira: Who is it?
Vedek Bareil: [turning the man around] It's Prylar Bek.
Major Kira: No, it's not... It's you.
Odo: The one thing I've learned about humanoids is that in extreme situations, even the best of you are capable of doing terrible things.
Odo: You humanoids - when it comes to emotional attachments, you never see the obvious.
Major Kira: We need access to certain communication files in the Vedek Assembly records.
Quark: Perfect. Not only is it illegal, it's sacrilegious.
Major Kira: I believed in you. I defended you. And Winn was right all along. And now she's gonna destroy you.
Vedek Bareil: No. I've destroyed myself.
[Winn has been elected the new Kai]
Major Kira: So... instead of you, we have Winn to lead us.
Vedek Bareil: It is the will of the Prophets.
Major Kira: The question is... *where* will she lead us?
Vedek Bareil: Down paths she cannot possibly imagine. She's gonna need our help along the way, even if she doesn't realize it yet.
