Nog: This is bad, very bad.
Kira Nerys: You say that every time we take the Defiant into battle.
Nog: Impulse manifold purged and clear. – If we lose the Chin’toka system, we lose our only foothold in the Dominion territory. I think that qualifies as bad.
Kira Nerys: Oh, we haven’t lost it yet. – Initiating impulse pre-start sequence.
Nog: Microfusion generators online. – But the Breen, they seem unstoppable. First Earth, now Chin’toka?
Worf: Ensign, no one is unstoppable. – Collimate the nadion emitters.
Nog: Collimation sequence in progress.

Miles O’Brien: I wouldn’t call it nothing.
Ezri Dax: Autonomous guidance system initialized and active.
Miles O’Brien: He lost Travis.
Kira Nerys: Hm – sounds serious. – Verify astrometric database.
Julian Bashir: Miles built this Alamo model, replete with small figures. Quite spectacular, actually. – Data sets loaded and verified. – Anyway, he was showing it to me in Quark’s when we – rather I – accidentally misplaced Colonel Travis.
Nog: Phaser safeties engaged. – Can’t you make another one?

Miles O’Brien: It’s not a toy! It’s a model, built to scale.
Julian Bashir: He really did a fantastic job.
Miles O’Brien: Nacelles holding at pre-warp threshold.
Julian Bashir: Miles, look…
