Daily Star Trek Quote Challenge, 7/18/2006

- It's ironic. When the Klingons attacked this station, Gul Dukat and I fought side-by-side. At one point, when he was struggling with a Klingon, he turned his back to me, and I have to admit, for a moment, he made a very tempting target.

- You'd shoot a man in the back?

- That's the safest way, isn't it? But then I thought, "I can't fight all these Klingons by myself," so I let him live.

- And now you regret it.

- My dear ____, before this day is over, everyone on this station is going to regret it.

GARAK: My dear Constable, before this day is over, everyone on this station is going to regret it.

I always liked these "prepare for a last stand" kind of episodes - where everyone at DS9 realizes that they are in it together and they can forget petty (but real) differences. If it were only like that in the real world!
