ODO: I'll help any way I can, but I think you'll find my reports were quite thorough.
SISKO: Admiral, I doubt you brought us all this way just for a debriefing.
Leyton: Of course not. Ben, Earth is in danger, maybe the greatest danger its faced since the last world war. Something has to be done about these shapeshifters, and that's why you're here. You know more about the Dominion than anyone in Starfleet and so effective immediately, I'm making you Chief of Starfleet Security here on Earth.
COMMANDER BENTEEN: Congratulations, Captain.
(A cosy, friendly dining place with baseball photos and a stuffed alligator hanging from the ceiling. The kitchen is in full view of the patrons.)
JOSEPH: This is one beautiful fish. Seems a shame to eat a trout this pretty. Why, you should thank me for the privilege of simply looking at it. Well, go on, take a bite. It won't bite you back. Now, I don't want to see anybody studying the dessert menu. If you order anything but the bread pudding soufflé, you'll be making a mistake you will regret the rest of your lives.
SISKO: You should listen to him. The man knows his bread pudding.
(Hugs all around.)
JOSEPH: When are you going to stop growing? If you keep this up, you'll be bumping your head on that alligator before too long!
JAKE: I remember when you used to tell me that alligator was just in stasis, and you let it down at night to guard the restaurant.
JOSEPH: I had to stop doing that. It got to be too much trouble wrestling it back up to the ceiling every morning! Come on. I'll get Nathan to bring you both something to eat and we can catch up. Nathan, some gumbo for these fine young men.
NATHAN: Yes, sah!
JOSEPH: So, where's this shape-shifting fellow you were coming with?
SISKO: With things the way they are, Odo thought it would be better if he stayed at Starfleet Headquarters.
JOSEPH: I don't blame him. I haven't seen people so nervous since the Borg scare. Now personally, I'd like to meet him, though I have to admit, I'm a little suspicious of anyone who doesn't eat.
SISKO: Well, aren't you going to eat anything?
JOSEPH: I ate before you got here. Son, don't look at me that way.
