MAKBAR: Proceed Mister Korvat.
KOVAT: Mister O'Brien, were you abused as a child?
Kovat: Were your parents especially abusive? Did you hate them very much?
O'BRIEN: I loved my parents...
Kovat: I see. Spousal abuse, perhaps? Was your wife causing you severe psychological stress?
O'BRIEN: My wife is the most supportive, wonderful woman I've ever known.
KOVAT: Excuse me for asking. I'm merely trying to establish why a fine man like you could turn into a criminal. Perhaps you could help me.
O'BRIEN: I can't help you because I'm no criminal.
KOVAT: Well, I tried.
Makbar: Tell me, Mister O'Brien. How many Cardassians have you killed?
MABAR: Tell me, Mister O'Brien -- how many Cardassians have you killed.
O'BRIEN: Killed? None. Since the war, that is.
MAKBAR: Including the war, how many Cardassians have you killed?
ODO: Madame Archon, what relevance does Mister O'Brien's war experiences have?
MAKBAR: His past criminal record is very much relevant to these proceedings, sir. Answer the question.
O'BRIEN: I'm not sure.
MAKBAR: That many, eh?
O'BRIEN: It was war. Both sides did things they had to do.
MAKBAR:Tell me, Mister O'Brien, now that we are at peace, do you have a warm place in your heart for your Cardassian neighbors?Or are you deeply prejudiced against Cardassians... do you not in fact hate Cardassians... have you not on several occasions publicly stated your opposition to the treaty because and I quote "the bloody Cardies can't be trusted?"
