Quote of the Day

Quark: Did you know this Congress of Economic Meddlers actually passed legislation, making monopolies illegal? What’s the point of being in business if you can’t corner the market, gouge your customers?

Rom: There’s something to be said for keeping prices down by ensuring healthy competition. So – what’re you gonna do with the bar?

Quark: You can’t even dump industrial waste anymore because it might harm the natural habitat. I’m supposed to start worrying about animals now. Look how they live, wallowing in dirt, sleeping in trees. That’s not natural!

Rom: I suppose you could argue that Ferenginar’s biodiversity is a precious resource that belongs to everyone. So… what are you going to do with the bar?

Quark: And don’t even get me started about this whole ‘labor rights’ thing. What have we come to if you can’t demand sexual favors from the people in your employ?

Rom: Unharassed workers are productive workers. So, what-are-you-going-to-do-with-the-bar?

Quote of the Day

Ezri Dax: At first, it struck me as a little… peculiar. But after I thought it over, I began to think that this might be a good sign after all.

Quark: How can hiding in one of Julian’s adolescent programs be a good sign?

Julian Bashir: Hey…

Jake Sisko: It could be worse. He could be hiding in the Alamo program.

Leeta: Or that ridiculous secret agent program.

Julian Bashir: Hey…

Rom: Or that stupid Viking program!

Julian Bashir: HEY!

Quote of the Day

Benjamin Sisko: Hey, Jake that was a hell of a game! A hell of a game!

Jake Sisko: I gave up ten runs.

Benjamin Sisko: They’re Vulcans. If they were humans you’d have held them to just two or three.

Jake Sisko:When you put it that way.

Benjamin Sisko: Yes. Now, pardon me. I owe you an apology.

Rom: No. Unless you really want to.

Benjamin Sisko: I’m sorry.

Rom: Apology accepted.

Benjamin Sisko: If you have some time one day, maybe you can teach me how to bunt.

Rom: Sure… What’s a bunt?

Nog: That’s my dad.

Solok: I fail to see why you are celebrating. The Ferengi’s bunt was an accident. And you still lost the game.

Benjamin Sisko: You are absolutely right. And I couldn’t be happier. Quark, a round of drinks for the house on my tab.

Quark: I’m way ahead of you, Captain.

Solok: You are attempting to manufacture a triumph where none exists.

Kasidy Yates: I’d say he succeeded.

Julian Bashir: To manufactured triumphs.

Benjamin Sisko: Manufactured triumph. Hear, hear!

Niners: Hear, hear!

Solok: This is a typical human reaction, based on emotionalism and illogic.

Benjamin Sisko: Did I hear irritation in that voice?

Solok: Certainly not.

Julian Bashir: That sounded positively defensive to me.

Miles O’Brien: With a hint of anger.

Quark: And just a touch of jealousy.

Kasidy Yates: And a lot of bitterness.

Ezri Dax: Are you always this emotional?

Solok:I refuse to engage in this human game of taunting.

Ezri Dax: Human? Did I forget to wear my spots today?

Quark: All that intelligence and he still doesn’t know what a human looks like.

Kira Nerys: Captain. Here’s something else for your desk.

(She throws him a baseball signed by the team.)

Benjamin Sisko: Well, will you look at that. Would you like to sign it?

(Solok leaves.)

Benjamin Sisko: No.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Season 7: Episode 4 – “Take Me Out to the Holosuite”

Quote of the Day

Benjamin Sisko: May I help you, gentlemen?

Rom: I was following you.

Quark: Must have taken a wrong turn.

Benjamin Sisko: It looks that way.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Season 6: Episode 10 – “The Magnificent Ferengi”

Quote of the Day

Rom: Latinum lasts longer than lust – Rule of Acquisition 229.

Miles O’Brien: Maybe. But lust can be a lot more fun.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Season 5: Episode 20 – “Ferengi Love Songs”

Quote of the Day

Julian Bashir: Quark, where do you want this?

Quark: What is it?

Julian Bashir: A case of Alvanian brandy. A patient sent it as payment but I can’t accept it.

Quark: Nice try, Doctor, but I don’t want your charity.

Julian Bashir: Oh, it’s not charity. I find it undrinkable. So do you want it or shall I dump it?

Jadzia Dax: Quark. My sister sent me these. I thought you might want them but they’re really ugly.

Rom: They’re not as ugly as the old ones, but they’re pretty bad.

Quark: This is all very amusing, but I can’t start a bar with a case of bad brandy and a set of ugly glasses.

Benjamin Sisko: Quark!

Quark: Yes, Captain?

Benjamin Sisko: We’re doing some structural repair work on level two of the Habitat ring. We need a place to store some extra furniture for the next few months and it looks like you have the room.

Odo: Captain, where do you want me to put all this furniture?

Benjamin Sisko: We have three levels, Constable. Use them all.

Odo: Understood.

Quark: Captain, you can’t do this! Not without paying a storage fee. A minimum storage fee. Practically nothing.

Benjamin Sisko: Send me the bill.

Quark: All right. Don’t just stand there, Odo. Move it all in.

Rom: Look at them, brother. And you thought you had no assets.

Quark: Sisko, Dax, Bashir, Morn? They’re my assets?

Rom: To name a few.

Quark: I guess you’re right. I need a drink.
