Storyline

"War is good for business" is the 34th Rule of Acquisition, but Quark is not noticing it at all. His bar is almost empty now people are leaving the station in droves in fear of the Dominion. Only a drunk Klingon, Kozak, is left and he refuses to pay. He assaults Quark and dies while accidentally falling on his knife. When Quark sees curious crowds outside the bar, he gets a great idea. He decides to tell everyone he killed the Klingon in a great fight to increase business. Odo warns him this might be dangerous, but arrogantly Quark refuses to listen. First he gets a visit by Zadok's brother D'Ghor seeking confirmation he died an honorable death, then he has to confess the truth to widow Grilka. She kidnaps him and forces him to marry her to save the House of Kozak. Meanwhile, Keiko has to close the school because all the Bajoran children left. Chief O'Brien tries everything to cheer her up.

Quotes

Quark: [D'Ghor has cornered Quark to interrogate him about his "brother"'s death] I wish you had been there. You would have been proud of your brother. He fought a brave and valiant battle right up to the end. It was an honor to kill him.
D'Ghor: I'm sure it was. Remember that when you tell your customers about the death of Kozak.

Light-hearted and a pretty funny.
20 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The House of Quark" is a very, very good episode of "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" and it's among the best of the occasionally funny shows in the series. It all begins with a nasty Klingon drunk in Quark's. The place is empty aside from the drunk, Quark and his brother. When the Klingon cannot pay for the blood wine and demands more, Quark tries to eject the guy. Suddenly, the drunk pulls out a knife and tries to stab Quark. In the ensuing scuffle, the drunk falls and dies--stabbed with his own knife. Quark, being a real opportunist, decides to concoct a story about him being attacked and him taking the knife and killing the Klingon in combat! He THINKS this will increase traffic into the bar---and it does. But it also sucks him into the middle of a Klingon struggle for succession to the head of the dead drunk's family. Now, Quark suddenly finds himself married AND about to be killed!! How can he possibly extricate himself from this mess?!

The show is very well written and kept my attention. Even my oldest daughter, who is not a fan of the series, laughed at this one. Well done and worth seeing.
