    SISKO: You can't be naive enough to think that the Dominion is going to stop with the Federation. When they're finished with us, they're coming after you!

    SISKO: The Founders see it as their sacred duty to bring order to the galaxy. Their order. Do you think they'll sit idly by while you keep your chaotic empire right next to their perfect order? No! If you watch us go under, then what you're really doing is signing your own death warrant.

    DAX: But before I plunge my people into a conflict that will kill millions of loyal Romulan citizens, I need something more concrete than the self-serving argument of a Starfleet officer. I need proof of Dominion duplicity. Not more words, proof.

    SISKO: Very good, old man. You would have made a decent Romulan.

    SISKO: Okay, you've convinced me. They're going to need evidence. But if there is evidence of a Dominion plan to attack Romulus, it's probably buried deep in the bowels of their headquarters on Cardassia Prime.

    DAX: Not exactly the most accessible place in the galaxy.

    SISKO: Not for us, maybe. But there is someone on this station who specializes in gaining access to places where he is not welcome.

    GARAK: I must say I'm flattered, Captain. I had no idea you held such a lofty opinion of me. Your faith in my ability to retrieve classified information from my former homeland is most gratifying.

    SISKO: Mister Garak, let's dispense with the usual repartee and concentrate on the issue at hand. Can you do it or not?

    GARAK: No one wants to see the Dominion destroyed more than I do, but to go to Cardassia Prime, penetrate one of the most heavily guarded facilities in the quadrant, steal top secret war plans and then return them safely to you is not just another job. It's more like a suicide mission. And that is well outside my field of expertise.

    SISKO: I didn't say you had to go there yourself. I have to believe that a man like you still has a few contacts at home. A colleague from the Obsidian Order, an old friend, a reliable informant. Someone who might owe you a favor.

    Garak: It would mean calling in all my favors, Captain. To do what you're asking would use up every resource I have left on Cardassia.And it may be a very messy, very bloddy business. Are you prepared for that?

    SISKO: I posted my fourteenth casualty list this morning. I'm already involved in a very messy, very bloody business. And the only way I can see to end it is to bring the Romulans into the war. I am prepared to do whatever it takes to accomplish that goal, but I can't do it alone. I need help. Now, are you in or out?

    Hey there, LeadHead! Long time, no see.

    SISKO [OC]: My father used to say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    [Sisko's quarters]

    SISKO: I laid the first stone right there. I'd committed myself. I'd pay any price, go to any lengths, because my cause was righteous. My intentions were good. In the beginning, that seemed like enough.

    [Sisko's bedroom]

    SISKO [OC]: If there's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that bad news invariably comes in the middle of the night.
