    JARESH-INYO: A very effective entrance, Mister Odo.

    ODO: One that never should have been allowed to take place. Admiral Leyton and Captain Sisko walked in here without being searched, without being blood-tested, and without having their possessions subjected to phaser sweeps.

    SISKO: If Odo was a Dominion infiltrator, he could have killed you.

    LEYTON: Or replaced you. The way security is now, a changeling could get anywhere on Earth, replace anyone; even you.

    SISKO: Sir, all we want is your permission to increase security at Federation and Starfleet installations here on Earth. Blood tests will be limited to Starfleet officers and high- ranking Federation officials.The average citizen won't even notice the difference. I wish these security measures weren't necessary. But the safety of Earth... and the entire Federation... depends on them.

    JARESH-INYO: You present a convincing argument, Captain. It seems I have no choice but to accept your proposals.

    JARESH-INYO: Don't thank me. If I could think of another solution, I would use it. It took centuries for Earth to evolve into the peaceful haven it is today. I would hate to be remembered as the Federation President who destroyed paradise.

    SISKO: We're not looking to destroy paradise, Mr. President. We're looking to save it.

    (A device above the door sweeps the room for several seconds. Eventually the plant surrenders, revealing itself to be Odo.)
    SISKO: That's enough. How do you feel?

    COMMANDER BENTEEN: 3.1. If we set the phasers at 3.4, we should be able to stun any changeling we hit and force them back into a gelatinous state.

    ODO: I would make it three point five just to be on the safe side. But if you want to do more testing, you'll have to find another guinea pig. I've been shot quite enough for one day.

    SISKO: 3.5 it is. I want these units installed in every room at Starfleet and Federation Headquarters, then start working on the orbital stations.

    BENTEEN: For convincing the President to implement these security measures. It feels like we're finally on the right track.

    ODO: You'd think she'd've thanked me, too. After all, I'm the one who got shot thirteen times today.
