SISKO: Oh, no. She may not be Curzon, but she is Dax.
HUDSON: Yes, that would be extremely strange. So, Ben, how is Jake?
SISKO: As tall as me.
SISKO: He throws inside to knock the old man off the plate.
HUDSON: A little chin music, huh?
SISKO: He's growing up too fast.
HUDSON: It must have been difficult for you. At least I didn't have a child to raise by myself.
SISKO: Well, we kind of helped each other through it. When I heard about Gretchen, I wanted to be there for you. There was just no way to get back.
HUDSON: I know that, Ben. You know, I was hoping when they sent me to the colonies that you and I would have time for some R and R together.
SISKO: Who's got R and R time?
HUDSON: I know. You can't imagine how my life has changed since the Federation abandoned these colonies.
SISKO: Abandoned them? Doesn't your presence there...?
HUDSON: My presence there is a joke. I am supposed to help these colonies function under the terms of the new treaty. Now Ben, what the hell does that mean?
SISKO: I thought these colonists wanted to stay. That they refused to evacuate.
HUDSON: The treaty gave away their territory to the Cardassians, territory that these people had invested their lives in. Now, Ben, if you knew them as I do, you'd know why they can't leave. It's a bad treaty. The Federation gave away too much.
SISKO: Several Cardassian colonies wanted to stay on the Federation side of the Zone too. It seemed like a reasonable compromise
HUDSON: Well, yes, the Cardassians would love to have their colonies in our territory. Because they knew we'd protect them. But they have no intention of doing the same for ours.
SISKO: A number of admirals at Starfleet Command are worried the destruction of the Bok'Nor might jeopardize the treaty.
HUDSON: Oh, are they really?
