    • Winn: (pulling away from Dukat's touch) Remember your place, Dukat! Dukat: I thought my place was in your bed.

    • Bashir: (talking about Section 31) They don't want me to find the cure. They're afraid the Founders will get hold of it.
      O'Brien: And to keep that from happening, they're willing to let Odo die.

    • Winn: You still don't understand, do you? The Pah-Wraiths have taken your sight as punishment for your arrogance. Only they can give it back to you. Dukat: I meant them no disrespect. I only wanted to study the book to help you learn how to release them. Winn: You wanted to see if you could do it without me. Well, you can't.

    • Bashir: Section 31 isn't trying to stop us from finding a cure. They're trying to cover up the fact that they've set out to commit genocide. O'Brien: Well, if they gave Odo this disease, then they must have a cure. Bashir: We have to find a way to get our hands on that cure. O'Brien: (anxious) Before Section 31 gets their hands on us.

    • Hilliard: I'm afraid those files are classified.
      Bashir: But... I thought you just asked me all these questions to clear me to receive them...
      Hilliard: No, no, you misunderstood. I can't release those files to anyone who doesn't have Sigma-9 clearance.
      Bashir: Listen, I don't give a damn about Sigma-9 clearance!! All I care about is finding a cure for this disease!!
      Hilliard: I fail to see why you're so determined to cure a disease that infects our enemy. We're at war, Doctor.
      Bashir: The Founders have nothing to do with it! Odo's life is at stake!!!
      Hilliard: Odo, which by your admission, is known to consort with the enemy.
      Bashir: (struggles to calm down) Sir, you have to understand the circumstances.
      Hilliard: I don't care about circumstances. If you find a cure, there's a good chance it will fall into Dominion hands. That's a risk Starfleet Medical is not willing to take. Request for the files is denied. Now if I were you, I would drop this matter. Otherwise I will have to refer to Starfleet Security.
