Verad Dax: (clasping Sisko's arms) We are still friends, aren't we, Benjamin?
Sisko: I hope so. Come with me down to the infirmary and prove it.
Verad Dax: I can't do that.
Sisko: (thrusting Dax's arms off him) Then you're not the Dax that I know. Our friendship is over!
Verad: Either you help me, or you and your friends will die.
Tim Russ would later play Tuvok on Star Trek: Voyager.
