SISKO: The Celestial Temple.
KASIDY: This is scaring me. Let's go home.
SISKO: I can't. Not now.
KASIDY: Why not? Oh, God. This is it, isn't it? The sorrow that the Prophets warned us about.
SISKO: It's difficult to explain. It's not linear.
KASIDY: What isn't?
SISKO: My life, my destiny. The Prophets saved me, Kasidy. I'm their Emissary and they still have a great deal for me to do. But first, there is much to learn. Things only the Prophets can teach me.
KASIDY: When will you be back?
SISKO: It's hard to say. Maybe a year, maybe yesterday. But I will be back.
KASIDY: I will be waiting.
JAKE: Kas, can you hear me? You seemed pretty far away for a second.
KASIDY: I was talking to your father.
(The O'Briens leaving a pile of packing crates. Miles spots the missing Colonel Travis on the floor as Minstrel Boy plays, and we are treated to a montage of memories. The Alamo model, the secret agent holoprogramme, putting his dislocated shoulder back, the tribbles, meals, racquetball, getting drunk with Julian.)
(Martok goes into the airlock and Worf takes a last look around. He remembers his arrival on the station, the secret agent holoprogramme, making love to Ezri, fighting Gowron, hanging upside down with Ezri. Ezri waves goodbye from the upper level.)
(Odo gives Kira his old bucket, and remembers the plant he put in it, dancing at Vic's, the first kiss on the Promenade and when he morphed over her.)
(Quark polishes glasses and remembers him and Odo stranded on the cold planet, Miles and Julian as Battle of Britain pilots, Rom pouring liquid in his ear, not catching a baseball, seeing Fontaine's Eight walk along the Promenade.)
(Jake takes a model chair from the house that Sisko built, and remembers when his dad told him they were going to DS9, the hugs, the laughter, the solar- wind powered spaceship.)
KIRA: You sure you want to leave without saying goodbye?
ODO: I'm sure. I've never been good at goodbyes.
KIRA: There are going to be a lot of people that are disappointed.
ODO: If they don't know how I feel about them now, a few parting words won't make the difference.
QUARK: Ah ha! I knew it! When I saw the two of you slip out, I said to myself, that no good, misanthropic, cantankerous, changeling is trying to sneak off the station without anyone noticing.
ODO: That was the idea.
QUARK: Well, it's not going to happen.
ODO: Apparently not.
