My only issue with this episode is that people are always talking about it. I thought the record was deleted.
Seriously though, I know it's silly, but fanfic and legitimate fiction "follow-ups" to this episode do kind of irk me for the same reason. The whole weight of the episode lies in Sisko's last line and action. "I *can* live with it."
.. Huh?! What episode? What are you talking about?
