ODO: I'll be in the next room if you need me
Leyton: Mind if I get a cup of coffee?
SISKO: Help yourself.
LEYTON: I haven't been getting a lot of sleep lately. Too much to do.
SISKO: Maybe you need a vacation.
LEYTON: Mmm. Somehow replicated coffee never tastes this good. I'm afraid I owe you an apology, Ben.
SISKO: The way I see it, you owe a lot of people an apology.
LEYTON: I wish I could have told you the truth from the beginning, but somehow I suspected we wouldn't see eye to eye on this thing.
SISKO: Then why did you bring me here?
LEYTON: Because I needed someone who knew how to fight Shape-shifters. And that's you. And I suppose on some level I hoped that once you saw what we were accomplishing, you'd join us. You always had a strong sense of duty.
SISKO: My duty is to protect the Federation.
LEYTON: Which is what we're trying to do.
SISKO: What you're trying to do is to seize control of Earth and place it under military rule.
LEYTON: If that's what it takes to stop the Dominion.
SISKO: So you're willing to destroy paradise in order to save it.
LEYTON: Do you remember when we were on the Okinawa fighting the Tzenkethi? That time when I wanted to take the ship into an asteroid belt to chase down those three raiders. We talked it over at the staff meeting...
SISKO: And I said it was an unnecessary risk.
LEYTON: You spoke your mind. Which is exactly what a good executive officer is supposed to do. But I overruled you. After the staff meeting you followed me into my ready room and tried to argue your point again.
SISKO: That's right, I did.
LEYTON: And remember what I told you?
