Quote of the Day

Jake Sisko: Come on, Nog.

Nog: No.

Jake Sisko: Why not?

Nog: It’s my money, Jake. If you want to bid at the auction, use your own money.

Jake Sisko: I’m human, I don’t have any money.

Nog: It’s not my fault that your species decided to abandon currency-based economics in favour of some philosophy of self-enhancement.

Jake Sisko: Hey, watch it. There’s nothing wrong with our philosophy. We work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity.

Nog: What does that mean exactly?

Jake Sisko: It means… It means we don’t need money.

Nog: Well if you don’t need money, then you certainly don’t need mine.

Jake Sisko: How much latinum do you have? How much?

Nog: Five bars.

Jake Sisko: Five bars!

Nog: Look, it’s taken me a lifetime to save up that much money, and I’m not going to just throw it away for some baseball card.

Jake Sisko: Not even for my father, the man who made it possible for you to enter Starfleet Academy.

Nog: Oh no, that’s not fair.

Jake Sisko: The man who believed in you when no one else would.

Nog: Oh, this is so low.

Jake Sisko: I can’t believe you would rather keep your filthy money locked away in a box under a bed than use it to give him endless moments of happiness.

Nog: Argh! All right, all right. I’ll do it.

Jake Sisko: That’s very generous, Nog. I’m proud of you. Now let’s get that money.

Nog: Hew-mons.
