SISKO: And you just had to have some I'danian spice pudding.
JAKE: I still can't believe I couldn't get a decent bowl back on Earth.
SISKO: That didn't stop you from ordering it at every replicator you saw. So, is it good to be home?
JAKE: Yeah, I can't wait to sleep in my own bed again.
SISKO: Phew. I wonder when that happened?
SISKO: When did I start thinking of this Cardassian monstrosity as home?
JAKE: I think it happened last Thursday, around 1700 hours. When you took all this stuff out of storage back on Earth.
SISKO: Careful. That's a two thousand year old Yoruba mask and that stuff is one of the finest collections of ancient...
BOTH: African art you'll ever see.
JAKE: I know. And I also know how much it means to you. But to me this will always be the stuff in your library at home. When you took it out of storage so you could bring it here, it meant Earth wasn't home anymore. This was.
(Sisko takes the mask and holds it up against a bulkhead, in dappled starlight.)
SISKO: So, what do you think?

(Odo is stargazing.)
KIRA: Odo, there you are. I just finished talking to the Provisional Government and they want you to go with us to the Gamma Quadrant tomorrow to act as an official Bajoran representative.
ODO: I'm no diplomat.
KIRA: I know. That's why they want you to go. If we do locate the Founders, we're going to need more than diplomacy. We're going to need to size them up, see what kind of threat they pose to Bajor, analyse
ODO: You're the military expert, Major, not me. And I doubt that the Provisional Government contacted you and asked for my presence on this mission. If I'm not mistaken, this is a misguided attempt to make me feel better.
KIRA: Maybe it is. Maybe I'm your friend, and maybe I want you to see that you are still needed here no matter what some idiot Starfleet admiral might think. The Defiant leaves at 0700 hours.
ODO: You needn't brace yourself to give me unpleasant news, Commander, I'll save you the trouble: I've been relieved as Chief of Security.
I think you're behind a line or thirty, MacLeod.
