Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

I also love Garak, I recommend "A stitch in time" for everyone who likes Garak.

Also, I wonder: if all of Garak's stories about how he became an exile are true... then which parts? Obviously not the part about his "friend" Elim, because Garak IS Elim. Was he saying that he betrayed himself?
It's simple, all parts are true, especially the lies

I've heard nothing but good things about that book. I suppose I'll just have to read it. If I can find it anywhere!

Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

I think Garak was just trying to drop elements of truth fictitiously.

It's never confirmed what he actually did but strongly implied it was humanitarian.

I got the overall impression he either had a crisis of conscience, or just stepped on the wrong toes.

Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

In "The Search"...

Suddenly two Jem'Hadar appear around
the corner.

JEM'HADAR SOLDIER
Halt. Put down your weapons.

Without missing a beat Garak points his phaser at Sisko and
the others.

GARAK
By all means Commander, do as he
says.

BASHIR
Garak?

GARAK
You heard me Doctor.

Sisko and the others toss down their weapons.

GARAK
Good.

Garak moves towards the Jem'Hadar soldiers, his phaser held
loosely by his side.

GARAK
I'm glad to see everything's going
according to plan.

The Jem'Hadar seem as surprised by Garak's action as our
heroes do.

JEM'HADAR SOLDIER
What plan is that?

GARAK
Didn't anyone tell you? You see, I
pretend to be their friend... and
then I shoot you.

And before the Jem'Hadar soldiers can react Garak raises his
weapon and blows them both away.

Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

Garak: "Are you sure that's the point, Doctor?"
Bashir: "Of course. What else could it be?"
Garak: "That you should never tell the same lie twice."
...
Garak: "The truth is usually just an excuse for lack of imagination."
....
Odo: "You'd shoot a man in the back?"
Garak: "Well, it's the safest way, isn't it?"

Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

Because the episode is fresh in my mind, pretty much everything Garak says in "Our Man Bashir". But especially:

"If I were in your shoes, I'd grab a bottle of champagne and shoot me."

"I must say, Doctor, this is more than I ever wanted to know about your fantasy life."

"Kiss the girl, get the key. They never taught me that in the Obsidian Order."

TBH, the joke doesn't reach his peak until the next line:

"Thanks to you, my injuries are fully healed--but the damage I did to them...will last a lifetime! "

Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

My favorite lines:

"You know, I think that actually helped my back."

---

"A wonderful move on the part of the major. You should have been paying attention..."

---

"Let's... haggle!"

---

Congratulations, captain, you wanted them angry; they're angry!"

---

"Cadet, there may be hope for you yet."

---

"perfect. How are you?"

---

"What makes you think I haven't already. (beat) I'm joking, of course."

(same scene)
"I thought you'd appreciate it on an aesthetic level."

---

"If I don't return within 52 hours, I want you to take that rod, and EAT it."

---

"It's best not to dwell on such minutia."

---

"You never told me that you had a secret mountain hideaway."

---

"Secure is such a relative term, don't you think?"

---

"Let me guess: you're either lost, or desperately searching for a good tailor."

---


"Unlucky for you, my sewing kit went down with the ship."

---

"Where you offer kindness, I offer mystery. Where you offer sympathy, I offer intrigue. Just give me a seat next to Odo's bed and I promise you I'll conjure up enough innuendos, half-truths and bald-faced lies about my so-called career in the Obsidian Order to keep the Constable distracted for days."

---

(upon being told that he final words are not permitted before his execution)

"How disappointing."

---

"I'll be along shortly to say... hello."

---

"Do you have any suspects?"
"Well, there's always Major Kira."
"Garak, be serious."
"I'm being serious! I don't think she likes me."
"She doesn't. But if she wanted you dead, you would be."
"You do have a point."

Re: Favorite Garak moments! Go!

One favorite moment comes from "Afterimage" when Garak verbally rips Ezri apart and then tells her to leave "before I say something unkind". I like it not because he puts down Ezri (I don't hate her) but because it gives me the impression that he could do that to anyone on the station at anytime. They're all spared only because Garak's too civilized to do that very often.

"I worked for the wrong intelligence service." When Bashir was describing his James Bond lifestyle. I also liked how Bashir ripped off his lines at the end.

That episode was pure gold. Avery Brooks would made a great Bond villain too.
