Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • This is the first time we see the Breen on camera.

    • This marks the first appearance of Tora Ziyal.

    • Cardasssians have very strict taboos about non-Cardassians seeing their dead. They feel it dishonors them. Bajorans, on the other hand, don't worry about that sort of thing. To them the body is an empty shell that demonstrates that the soul's pagh has returned to the Prophets.

    • Nitpick: In later episodes when the Breen join the Dominion, there is much speculation as to what they look like. Apparently, both Kira and Dukat told no one what they saw when they stole uniforms from Breen in this episode.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Dukat: Invigorating, isn't it? A bit sunny, perhaps, but this heat feels wonderful!
      Kira: Only a Cardassian would call this hellhole invigorating.

    • Razka Karn: Smuggling might not've been the safest line of work, but it was a lot more exciting than selling scrap metal.

    • Quark: You hu-mons! All you want to do is please your women, you want them to be your friends. But we Ferengi know better. Women are the enemy, and should be treated accordingly.

    • Dukat: (when Kira laughs at him trying to heal a wound in his posterior) This isn't funny!
      Kira: It is from this angle!

    • Jadzia: What if your woman leaves you?
      Quark: That's what holosuites are for.

    • Sisko: (talking abot women) I don't recall asking your opinion, Quark.
      Quark: Maybe you should. I mean, who knows more about women than me?
      Bashir: Everyone.

    • Dukat: I believe the time will come when Cardassia and Bajor will grow to be not only allies, but also... close friends.
      Kira: Cardassia and Bajor... maybe. You and me... I doubt it.

    • Dukat: I know it's hard for you to accept, but I think that, in some ways, the occupation actually helped Bajor.
      Kira: Which part? The massacres or the strip mining?

    • Dukat: You're so determined, so competent. You're the embodiment of the new Bajor. A Bajoran born out of the ashes of the occupation, a Bajoran tempered with Cardassian steel.
      Kira: Captain Sisko's right. You are in love with the sound of your own voice.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The Searchers
      Gul Dukat's quest to find his daughter with the intent of killing her because of her racially mixed influence only to find that he cannot is very similar to the plot of the 1956 movie The Searchers, starring John Wayne as Ethan Edwards. Ethan Edwards tracks down the daughter of his best friend's wife with the intent of killing her because the Native Americans have "spoiled" her. When he tracks her down, he cannot kill her, because he sees her mother in her whom he deeply loved.
