ODO: I found twenty seven voles in his storeroom.
QUARK: Vole infestations are not uncommon on this station. If you don't
believe me, ask Chief O'Brien.
ODO: When I came in, he and Morn were painting numbers on the voles'
QUARK: We were just counting them to see how many we'd caught.
SISKO: You were getting ready to stage a vole fight.
QUARK: A vole fight? I'm appalled. Do you really think that was what
Morn was up to?
SISKO: Constable, I want the voles confiscated and removed from the
QUARK: You can't confiscate Morn's voles. They're like his pets.
SISKO: I'll see if I can get him some goldfish. Now, gentlemen, if you
will excuse me, it's late.
QUARK: Poor Morn. This is going to break his hearts.
SISKO: Ops is yours, Lieutenant.
(O'Brien enters in casual clothes.)
SISKO: You going somewhere, Chief?
O'BRIEN: Sir, I need to talk to you. It's kind of private.
ODO: We were just leaving. Come on, let's go break the news to Morn.
SISKO: Do you want to talk in my office?
O'BRIEN: Actually, I thought we might go to my place.
(O'Brien sticks a weapon in Sisko's back.)
SISKO: Stand down.
O'BRIEN: Get on the transporter pad. Move.
(O'Brien runs a device over Dax's console.)
O'BRIEN: Computer, energise on my command.
(O'Brien joins Sisko on the pad)
(This is not a standard federation ship.)
SISKO: Where are we?
O'BRIEN: I guess you could say we just stepped through the looking
[Raider - quarters]
O'BRIEN: Sit down. Make yourself comfortable.
SISKO: Right now I'm not feeling very comfortable.
(Sisko disarms O'Brien.)
SISKO: There. That's better.
O'BRIEN: That was a pretty nice move.
SISKO: I'm glad you liked it.
O'BRIEN: Of course, it doesn't change anything. You can't go home
unless I reconfigure the transporter, and I'm not about to do that. I
guess you've got a lot of questions.
SISKO: Not as many as you think.
O'BRIEN: You know where we are?
SISKO: If I had to guess, I'd say that this is the same parallel
universe that two of my crewmembers visited a year ago.
O'BRIEN: You're quick. Just like our Sisko. That saves me having to
give you a history lesson. But I'd better update you on current events.
Since your officers left here, we've started a rebellion against the
Klingon-Cardassian Alliance. We're fighting for our lives.
SISKO: I wish you luck, but I don't see what that has to do with me.
O'BRIEN: It has everything to do with you. You were the leader of the
Terran Rebellion. At least, our Benjamin Sisko was.
O'BRIEN: Captain Sisko's dead. The Cardassians blew up his ship.
SISKO: Ah. So you want me to take his place.
O'BRIEN: Like I said, you're quick.
SISKO: Well, I've got a better idea. We're going to walk back to the
transporter pad and you're going to send me home.
O'BRIEN: Wait. Hear me out. I'm not asking for a lifetime commitment.
All I need is for you to finish the mission Sisko was on when he was
SISKO: I'm sorry, but you're going to have to find someone else. I
don't belong here and I'm not about to interfere with events going on
in this universe.
O'BRIEN: At least let me tell you about the mission. And then if you
decide not to help, I'll send you home. There's a Terran scientist
working for the Alliance. Our sources tell us she's close to completing
a new transpectral sensor array that will allow the Alliance to locate
our bases in the Badlands. Without a safe place to hide, the Alliance
will be able to track us down and kill us all.
SISKO: So, you want me to prevent this scientist from finishing her
O'BRIEN: Captain Sisko was convinced he could change her mind, get her
to work for us instead.
SISKO: How did he plan to do that?
O'BRIEN: She was his wife.
(O'Brien gives him a picture.)
O'BRIEN: You know her?
SISKO: She was my wife too. But in my universe, she's dead.
O'BRIEN: Not here she isn't. Not yet, anyway.
SISKO: What do you mean not yet?
O'BRIEN: Unless you can persuade Professor Sisko to join our cause,
we'll have no choice but to kill her.
SISKO: Kill her?
O'BRIEN: We cannot let her finish the sensor array. It'd mean the end
of the rebellion.
SISKO: I can't let her die. Not again.
O'BRIEN: You're the only one who can save her.
(A scene of decadence with slaves and eunuchs)
KIRA: Delectable. (to female) And so are you.
JENNIFER: Mister Garak said you wanted to see me.
KIRA: Yes. Come. Join us.
JENNIFER: If you're wondering when the new sensor array will be
finished, the answer is
KIRA: As soon as possible. I know.
JENNIFER: Will that be all? I have to get back to work.
KIRA: I have news of your husband.
JENNIFER: Nothing you could tell me about Ben would interest me. I
haven't even seen him in five years.
KIRA: I know that. And I hope that will make this easier for you. You
see, Benjamin is dead.
JENNIFER: Can I go now?
KIRA: You must've loved him very much to be so angry with him. To have
become so cold.
JENNIFER: Were other Terrans killed with him?
KIRA: A whole ship full.
JENNIFER: All this killing, it has to stop.
KIRA: And it will. As soon as you complete your transpectral sensors
we'll be able to locate the rebel bases, disarm them and put an end to
all this bloodshed. And I will be able to resume pressing the Alliance
to become more reasonable to its Terran population. You do believe me,
(Sisko is in civilian clothes)
SISKO: So it's agreed. I help you get Jennifer away from the Alliance,
and then you get me home.
O'BRIEN: You get us Jennifer, you can have anything you want. I just
hope you can convince her to leave Terok Nor.
SISKO: I don't understand what Jennifer's doing helping the Alliance in
the first place. I mean, didn't she know that Sisko was leading the
O'BRIEN: Oh, she knew. The truth is, she and Captain Sisko didn't get
along too well. Then again, the captain didn't really get along with
anyone. In some ways the rebellion's better off without him. Don't get
me wrong, the captain knew how to fight but that's about all he knew.
SISKO: You don't look very confident, Chief.
O'BRIEN: You'd better start calling me Smiley. That's what the Captain
SISKO: All right, Smiley.
O'BRIEN: I just wish we had more time to get you ready. I probably
haven't told you half of what you need to know. I hope you don't run up
against too many surprises.
SISKO: If I do, I guess I'll just have to improvise.
(In the underground complex are familiar faces with
mostly different personalities - Tuvok from Voyager for a start, Rom
BASHIR: I told Sisko he'd never get close to Terok Nor, and I was
ROM: I say we teach the Alliance a lesson. Throw everything we've got
at Terok Nor and rip it to pieces.
TUVOK: I disagree. Following your suggestion would do nothing to
enhance our goals and would result in a significant loss of life.
ROM: That's easy for you to say. Those Cardassian pigs didn't kill your
TUVOK: We have all suffered losses at the hands of the Alliance.
Nonetheless, logic dictates caution in the face of a superior enemy.
ROM: Logic isn't going to win us our freedom. We have to take action.
BASHIR: And we will. But this time we do it my way.
TUVOK: And what do you propose we do?
BASHIR: We smuggle explosives aboard the station, plant them in her
quarters, and detonate them.
TUVOK: You realise it is highly unlikely that anyone assigned to such a
mission would survive.
BASHIR: I say it's worth the risk.
SISKO: Does that mean you're volunteering for the job?
ROM: Captain, you're alive.
O'BRIEN: Of course he's alive. You can't kill the Captain. He's too
SISKO: I hope that doesn't disappoint anyone.
BASHIR: We're glad you're all right.
SISKO: I'm sure you are.
TUVOK: We heard your fighter was destroyed. The Alliance said you were
SISKO: Just their propaganda machine working overtime. But you know
what all that tells me? They're scared. And we're going to give them
plenty of reasons to stay scared.
DAX: Well, well, well. It's about time you came back.
(Dax kisses Sisko long and hard.)
DAX: That's to let you know I missed you.
(She slaps him.)
DAX: And that's for letting me think you were dead.
SISKO: I'm glad to see you still care.
DAX: You coming or not?
SISKO: I thought you told me I was married.
O'BRIEN: You are, technically. She's your mistress.
SISKO: I see what you meant by surprises.
[Rebel HQ - bedroom]
DAX: I'm really glad you're alive. And I'm going to
make you glad you're alive, too.
(Sisko stops her from undressing him.)
SISKO: We have a lot of planning to do.
DAX: It can wait.
SISKO: I suppose it can at that.
KIRA: Well these progress reports are unacceptable.
Productivity in the ore processing centre is down fifteen percent. You
have got to do better. Or are you purposely trying to make me look bad
to Sector Command?
GARAK: Not at all. I've done everything I can think of to motivate the
KIRA: Such as?
GARAK: Bribes, torture. I've even given overseers permission to execute
any worker not meeting the quota.
KIRA: I'm sure that pleases the overseers, but it is not getting the
job done. Follow me.
KIRA: Lets start with him, him, and her.
GARAK: And do what?
KIRA: Execute them. I think you'll find that random and unprovoked
executions will keep your entire workforce alert and motivated.
GARAK: I bow to your brilliance.
GUARD: Let's go. You too.
GARAK: Though I do hope your mood improves before we run out of
KIRA: What does my mood have to do with anything?
GARAK: If you don't mind my saying, I have noticed a certain amount of
ill-humour on your part lately.
KIRA: I don't know what you're talking about.
GARAK: As I recall, it began about the time you learned of Captain
KIRA: Now why would I be upset by such delightful news?
GARAK: Well, I was under the impression that you were rather fond of
KIRA: Well then, you were mistaken.
GARAK: Well I will say this for him. He did had spirit.
KIRA: Too much spirit can be a dangerous thing. It tends to infect
GARAK: Well that's something we won't have to worry at least. With
Sisko's death, and the imminent completion of the transpectral sensor
array, the Rebellion is certain to collapse.
KIRA: You seem very sure of yourself.
GARAK: I am.
KIRA: I'll remember that. If the Rebellion continues, I'll know who to
[Rebel HQ - bedroom]
SISKO: Are you sure these Alliance patrol patterns
DAX: You tell me. You gathered the information.
SISKO: Hmm? Oh, that's right.
DAX: Are you okay? You seem a little distracted.
SISKO: Just thinking.
DAX: I've been thinking too. You know, we've been fighting against the
Alliance for almost a year now. And what has it gotten us? Nothing.
Sometimes I think we were better off when we were collecting tribute
for the Intendant.
SISKO: Those days are gone.
DAX: Maybe, but I'm tired of living like this. The rebellion's a lost
cause and we both know it.
SISKO: Don't you want to see the Terrans gain their freedom?
DAX: Have you taken a good look at your troops lately? They're nothing
but ex-slaves with delusions of grandeur. They'll never overthrow the
Alliance. Let's just get a ship and go. Forget all about the rebellion.
SISKO: I'm not ready to give up just yet.
DAX: It's not like you're going to have much choice. Once that witch
you married finishes her new sensor array, Alliance ships are going to
be all over these Badlands. We're going to have no place to hide.
SISKO: Then I suppose we'll just have to make sure she doesn't finish.
SISKO: Trying to reach Terok Nor using small
fighters didn't work. But we need to get Jennifer off that station, and
we need to get her off there soon.
BASHIR: We've been meaning to talk to you about that.
TUVOK: Mister Bashir is not convinced that you can persuade your former
mate to join our cause.
SISKO: I can be very persuasive.
BASHIR: Look, I don't even know why we're bothering to discuss this.
The Cardassians destroyed your ship way before it got even close to
Terok Nor. And even if you had made it there, there was no guarantee
you could've convinced your wife of anything.
O'BRIEN: (sotto to Sisko) Hit him. That's what the Captain would do. Go
on, hit him.
BASHIR: Let's face it, Captain, the woman hates you.
(Sisko knocks Bashir down.)
SISKO: What my wife thinks of me is no concern of yours.
DAX: (with weapon) Anyone else want to disagree with the captain?
SISKO: Put it away, Dax. Go on, put it away.
BASHIR: No one is questioning your authority, Captain. But we have got
to stop her before she finishes that sensor array.
ROM: And there's only one sure way to do that.
BASHIR: We have to kill her.
O'BRIEN: You've been saying that all along.
BASHIR: Well maybe it's time he listened.
DAX: Killing her would be a lot easier than trying to get her away from
O'BRIEN: Easier, but not smarter. If she's that important to the
Alliance, think how important she could be to us. We could use a
scientist on our side.
SISKO: You tell them, Smiley. At least someone here is using his brain.
O'BRIEN: Think about it. Who knows what other weapons the Alliance is
developing. Someone like Professor Sisko could counteract anything they
come up with.
SISKO: She's valuable. We need her. All right. Does anyone disagree?
Good. Now let's get to work.
(Kira is getting a gentle, sensuous massage.)
GARAK: Tell the Intendant what you told me.
ROM: It's about Captain Sisko.
ROM: He's alive. He was able to get off his ship before it exploded.
GARAK: I suppose it's possible.
ROM: It's more than possible. It's true. But I can tell you how to get
your hands on him. If you're interested.
(O'Brien is scratching behind his ear.)
SISKO: Don't do that.
O'BRIEN: I can't help it. It itches. I hope this works.
SISKO: It'll work. Just stop scratching.
O'BRIEN: You did pretty good back there. I don't think anyone suspected
you weren't Captain Sisko. At least not once you hit Bashir.
SISKO: But you and I both know that was just a warm up. Jennifer's the
one I really have to convince.
O'BRIEN: I guess seeing her isn't going to be easy for you. How long's
it been since your wife died?
SISKO: Five years.
O'BRIEN: Well just remember, Jennifer may look like her, but she's not.
She's a completely different person.
SISKO: I'll try to remember that. Do you have any idea what went wrong
between her and Captain Sisko?
O'BRIEN: From what I heard, they never should've been together in the
first place. She came from one of the few privileged Terran families,
people who cooperated with the Alliance. The captain he fought his way
up from the mines.
SISKO: What is she like, this Jennifer?
O'BRIEN: I don't know. They'd separated by the time I got to know the
captain. What was your Jennifer like?
SISKO: She was the kindest, most caring person I ever knew.
O'BRIEN: I wouldn't get my hopes up. Hold on. I'm reading a slight
energy distortion in subspace.
SISKO: What are the coordinates?
O'BRIEN: It's coming from all around us.
(A Cardassian and a Klingon ship uncloak.)
O'BRIEN: You know, Captain Sisko would try to fight his way out of
SISKO: Be glad I'm not him.
KIRA: Well, if it isn't the notorious Captain Sisko
and his friend the Tinkerer.
(Sisko kisses Kira.)
SISKO: I'm glad to see you too, Intendant.
KIRA: Still the same old Benjamin.
SISKO: You wouldn't have it any other way.
KIRA: Perhaps not, but I'm still going to kill you.
SISKO: Maybe, but not right away.
KIRA: You flatter yourself.
SISKO: Not unjustly, I hope.
GARAK: Intendant, please, let me teach him some manners.
KIRA: All in good time. But first, whatever shall we do about O'Brien?
I remember the first time I saw you, Tinkerer. You were fixing
something. You were always fixing things, making things better. And
everyone loved you for it. Even me. But that just wasn't enough for
you, was it. You couldn't be happy, staying here, being loved. You had
to lash out and betray everyone who was ever good to you. Why?
O'BRIEN: I wanted to be free.
KIRA: Free? You're a Terran. You were born a slave and you'll die a
slave. Take him to ore processing. Remind him where he belongs.
GUARD: Let's go.
GARAK: What about Sisko?
SISKO: Take me to the Intendant's quarters. Then she'll decide what to
do with me.
GARAK: Of all the impudent
KIRA: Do as he says.
GARAK: Intendant. I demand that this man be
KIRA: You demand?
GARAK: But you promised me he'd die.
KIRA: And he will. When I say, and not a moment before.
SISKO: Shall we?
GARAK: After you.
KIRA: I really don't know what to do with you.
SISKO: I sympathise. It's a difficult decision. But I'm sure you'll
come up with something.
KIRA: The only reason I can think of to keep you alive is to infuriate
SISKO: What better reason do you need?
KIRA: Well, suppose I let you live. What will I get in return?
SISKO: What do you want?
KIRA: Your loyalty. That's all I've ever wanted. For you to be at my
side, my strong right hand. But I'm afraid I can never trust you again.
Which means that I will have to dispose of you eventually. The question
is, should it be sooner, or later?
SISKO: Do I get a vote?
KIRA: Of course you do. It just doesn't count. No, I've got to think
SISKO: You will let me know what you decide?
KIRA: I wouldn't dream of keeping it a secret.
(Jennifer enters with Garak.)
JENNIFER: Hello, Ben. Please leave us.
GARAK: What, and miss this touching reunion?
SISKO: You heard her.
GARAK: If you need anyone to beat him into submission for you, don't
hesitate to call me.
JENNIFER: All right, I'm here. What did you want to see me about?
SISKO: I was hoping we could talk.
JENNIFER: Really? You never seemed interested in talking to me while we
SISKO: I made a lot of mistakes back then.
JENNIFER: Save the apologies, Ben. They're not going to work. You are
without a doubt, the most insensitive, self-absorbed, egotistical
SISKO: You've made your point.
JENNIFER: I doubt it. You never listened to me before. You were always
too busy trying to impress every woman who crossed your path.
SISKO: Where there really that many?
JENNIFER: There were enough. And if it wasn't women, then it was that
ship of yours. Sometimes I think it was the only thing you ever loved.
SISKO: Maybe I loved you both.
JENNIFER: Then why did you leave me to go run and play pirate for the
SISKO: That's a good question.
JENNIFER: And now this Rebellion of yours. Do you know how many deaths
you've caused? How much destruction?
SISKO: I'm fighting to help free our people.
JENNIFER: You're fighting because you like to fight, Benjamin. The only
thing you've accomplished is to give the Alliance an excuse to treat
the Terrans worse than before. I just hope that with your capture, this
rebellion can be ended peacefully.
SISKO: Who said I'd been captured?
JENNIFER: Oh, I suppose you came here just to see me?
SISKO: Actually, I came here to rescue you.
JENNIFER: Rescue me?
SISKO: That's what I said.
JENNIFER: I'm not going anywhere with you.
SISKO: You can't stay here.
JENNIFER: I have a job to finish.
SISKO: You mean the sensor array?
JENNIFER: That's right.
SISKO: If you finish the array you'll destroy any hope our people have
for a better future. I don't think you want that.
JENNIFER: All I want to do is to put an end to all this fighting. To
force the rebels to seek a peaceful settlement with the Alliance.
SISKO: It's not that simple. The Alliance isn't interested in a
peaceful settlement. If we lay down our arms, we'll all be killed.
JENNIFER: The rebellion is killing people every day. It has to stop.
SISKO: Not this way. Not while the Terrans are still at the mercy of
the Alliance. They're your own people, Jennifer.
JENNIFER: You have no right to talk to me like that. Since when do you
care about what happens to our people? You've never cared about anyone
SISKO: Maybe I've changed in the past few years.
JENNIFER: How many times have I heard you say that?
SISKO: I guess I was a pretty lousy husband.
JENNIFER: You guess?
SISKO: Look, I know it's too late for an apology.
JENNIFER: You're right about that.
SISKO: But for what it's worth, I'm sorry. What is it?
JENNIFER: For a second, I almost believed you. You know what I wish? I
wish I'd never met you.
SISKO: And I wish things could've been better between us. But this
isn't about us. Or is it? Why are you working for the Alliance? Is it
because you believe in what they're doing or is it something else?
JENNIFER: I don't know what you're talking about.
SISKO: I think the two of us have been fighting each other for so long
that you've gotten used to us being on opposite sides. But I'm not the
enemy this time, Jennifer. The Alliance is.
JENNIFER: The Alliance is your enemy, not mine.
SISKO: That's where you're wrong. Don't you see, you're no different
than the slaves working in the ore processing centre. In fact, you may
even be worse off. At least they know they're prisoners.
JENNIFER: What if I am a prisoner?
SISKO: You don't have to be. Fight back. Come with me.
JENNIFER: You want me to join the rebellion?
SISKO: The way I see it, freedom is a lot better than slavery. Think
(Sisko taps three times behind his ear)
(O'Brien touches behind his ear.)
O'BRIEN: It took him long enough.
JENNIFER: What are you doing?
SISKO: Sending a message.
JENNIFER: You have a subdermal communicator?
SISKO: Courtesy of the Ferengi.
(O'Brien sneaks away from the main work, opens a
panel and starts adjusting things)
(Outside his quarters, Sisko knocks out the first
Klingon guard and then shoots the second with a disrupter)
SISKO: Jennifer, I need an answer. Are you coming with me or not?
JENNIFER: Do I have a choice?
SISKO: Of course you do. If you want, you can go back to your quarters
and forget we ever spoke. It's up to you.
JENNIFER: All right. But lets get one thing clear.
SISKO: What's that?
JENNIFER: I still hate you.
SISKO: I know.
CARDASSIAN: Terran, what are you doing down there?
O'BRIEN: Re-routing the central ODN processor. The Intendant's orders.
CARDASSIAN: I don't recall receiving clearance for any repairs.
(O'Brien knocks him out.)
O'BRIEN: You don't say?
(There are bangs, the lights flicker and the doors open. O'Brien grabs
the Cardassian's phaser and shoots another guard while the workers take
care of another.)
O'BRIEN: All right, anyone who wants to get out of here, follow me.
JENNIFER: You still haven't told me where we're
SISKO: Airlock seven. There should be a ship waiting there for us.
Providing we can get there before the security systems reactivate.
VOICE [OC]: You two look in there.
SISKO: Get back.
(Sisko shoots a Cardassian and they run. Another catches up to them and
shoots the bulkhead. They are trapped by a porthole.)
JENNIFER: Now what?
SISKO: I'll think of something.
(The Cardassians are killed in the crossfire.
SISKO: Good work, Smiley.
O'BRIEN: Yeah. The only problem is there's thirty more of them behind
SISKO: Then we'd better get to the airlock.
O'BRIEN: Come on.
(Rom's body is fixed across the airlock)
JENNIFER: Something tells me that's not part of your plan.
O'BRIEN: We've got to find another way out of here.
SISKO: Got any suggestions?
(Phaser fire around the corner.)
SISKO: Fall back.
(A worker gets shot as they retreat.)
KIRA: That was very clever, Benjamin, having one of your own men betray
you so you could get aboard the station. I was completely fooled.
Fortunately Mister Garak is somewhat more cynical than I am.
GARAK: Your Ferengi friend told us of your entire plan, with a little
persuasion of course.
KIRA: I'm afraid there's no escape. Your ship's locked down, your
pilot's dead. There's no way out. You might as well surrender.
O'BRIEN: If we surrender, she'll kill us.
SISKO: Maybe us, but not Jennifer.
JENNIFER: What if we offer a trade? I stay here and she lets you live.
KIRA: Benjamin, you know how I hate to be kept waiting.
SISKO: I came a long way to get you out of here, and I'm not going to
leave without you. What is it?
SISKO: Smiley, how far is the ore processing centre?
O'BRIEN: Only a couple of levels.
KIRA: Time's up, Benjamin. Benjamin!
KIRA: He always has to make things difficult.
GARAK: It's one of his least endearing qualities.
[Outside ore processing]
SISKO: Smiley, seal the doors.
O'BRIEN: Sure. It's easy for you to say.
(O'Brien dashes forward under fire, pulls the levers and gets back
before the doors shut tight)
SISKO: I'm going to get you out of here, I promise.
JENNIFER: I believe you.
(Sisko starts working a console.)
O'BRIEN: I don't know what you're up to, Captain, but there's no way
out of this room except through that door.
SISKO: Don't worry. I know what I'm doing. I just hope your Terok Nor
was designed by the same Cardassian that built my Terok Nor.
KIRA: Are you sure they're in there?
KIRA: Good. Then we've got them. Use the manual override to open the
GARAK: This time, Intendant, I trust you're not going to be so lenient
with our dear Mister Sisko.
KIRA: Don't worry. He's disappointed me for the last time.
(The Alliance forces rush in to no resistance.
Sisko, Jennifer and O'Brien are just standing there.)
KIRA: Jennifer. Oh, I was so worried about you. But you're safe now. In
fact, I can assure you that your husband will never annoy you again.
JENNIFER: Actually, for the first time since I've met him, he's not
annoying me. In fact, he's been making a lot of sense.
KIRA: Well, he can be very persuasive when he wants to be. I suppose
this means you won't be finishing the sensor array.
JENNIFER: I'm a Terran.
KIRA: Keep her alive. Kill the others.
SISKO: Oh, I wouldn't. You'd be making a mistake.
KIRA: The only mistake I made was not executing you in the first place.
SISKO: You don't know how right you are. I have activated the station's
self-destruct sequence. Unless I disarm it, this whole place will blow
up in nine minutes.
KIRA: That's impossible. There's no way you could know the station's
command access code.
SISKO: Alpha nine one seven five blue.
KIRA: Computer, disengage self-destruct sequence. Authorisation Kira
alpha nine one seven five blue.
COMPUTER: Authorisation denied.
SISKO: I changed it. You have eight minutes and thirty seconds to let
us go. Otherwise we all die.
GARAK: Don't listen to him. He's bluffing.
KIRA: He's not bluffing.
GARAK: How do you know?
KIRA: I know. Give me the new access code and I'll let you go.
SISKO: I will give you the access code once my friends and I are safely
away from the station. Do we have a deal?
KIRA: This isn't over Benjamin. I'll hunt you down. I swear it.
SISKO: You're welcome to try.
(Jennifer and Dax are sitting together.)

JENNIFER: You'd better go.
SISKO: Take me home, Smiley.
