"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.
