Ziyal: That won't be necessary, Father. I'm not leaving.
Dukat: Ziyal, I know we haven't spent much time together, but I think you know me well enough to realize that when I give an order, I expect to be obeyed.
Ziyal: I'm not one of your soldiers.
Dukat: No, you're my daughter.
Ziyal: I'm Tora Neprem's daughter, too. I'm half Bajoran. I don't belong on Cardassia. You know I will never be accepted there.
DUKAT: Ziyal, you have to trust me. Things are going to change on Cardassia.
Ziyal: What things?
Dukat: I don't have time to explain. You're leaving now.
Ziyal: I can't go.
Dukat: It's him, isn't it? That despicable tailor. You don't want to leave because you're waiting for him?!
Ziyal: Garak promised me that he would come back.
Dukat: Listen to me, Ziyal. He's never coming back. He's probably dead already, and even if he isn't, the Federation is going to seal the wormhole. Garak will be trapped on the other side.
Ziyal: He made a promise and so did I. I said I would wait for him and I will.
Dukat: Is a promise to an enemy of your family more important than obeying your father?
Ziyal says nothing.
Dukat: So be it. Stay here if that's what you want. Stay here and be damned.
Garak: I should never have come here. I should have let that monster die forgotten and alone.
BASHIR: Frankly, I'm glad you came. Misery loves company.
GARAK: All my life I've done nothing but try to please that man. I let him mold me, let him turn me into a mirror image of himself, and how did he repay me? With exile. But I forgave him. And here, in the end, I thought maybe, just maybe, he could forgive me.
BASHIR: From what I've seen of him over the last month, he doesn't come across as the forgiving type.
GARAK: I've been a fool. Let this be a lesson to you, Doctor, perhaps the most valuable one I can ever teach you. Sentiment is the greatest weakness of all.
Julian: If that's true, it's a lesson I'd rather not learn.
