GARAK: What do you think?
WORF: I think it is a bad idea.
GARAK: I'd write the actual letter myself. I just need you to sign it.
WORF: Find someone else.
Garak: Why? Because I'm a Cardassian? You're a Klingon, Nog is a Ferengi. Starfleet Academy is a very accepting place.
WORF: You are not just a Cardassian. You are a spy, an assassin and a saboteur.
GARAK: I know I've done some unfortunate things in the past and I regret them. That's why I want to join Starfleet. Why I need to join Starfleet. I'm looking for a fresh start, a way to make up for all the damage I've done. I need to prove to myself that I can be better than I am; but I need your help, your support, to start me on my way to redemption.
Worf: If that is how you feel, I will consider your request.
GARAK: That's all I ask. Frankly, I think I can be quite an asset to Starfleet. With my extensive experience I could skip the lower ranks entirely and begin my career as a Commander. Maybe you should suggest that in your letter? Tell them you'd be honored to serve under me.
Worf: Do not play games with me. You have no desire to join Starfleet, do you?"
Garak: No, I'm afraid I don't.
WORF: Then why all of this deception?
Garak: Because lying is a skill like any other, and if you want to maintain a level of excellence, you have to practise constantly.
WORF: Practice on someone else.
Garak: Mister Worf, you're no fun at all.
Dukat: Major, you and I have to talk.
Kira: Dukat, I've had a busy day. I just want to drink my coffee and-
Dukat: I left my daughter in your care. You promised me you would look after her. I trusted you.
KIRA: Listen, if this is about taking Ziyal to services at the Bajoran shrine..
