SIRELLA: Thank you, Captain. Where is she?
Martok: Jadzia's quarters are in the habitat ring, section 25 Alpha. May I escort you? It's quite far away.
SIRELLA: I'll find my way. If you'll excuse me.
MARTOK: Magnificent, isn't she?
In Jadzia's Quarters, Dax is lighting a set of candles.
Worf: Are these real var'Hama candles?
DAX: Yes, Worf. I traveled to Kronos, I captured 3 targs in the Hamar Mountains, made the ritual sacrifice at dawn, came back to the station, asked Quark to boil their shoulders into tallow. Then I spent 2 days molding them into candles with my own hands.
Worf: I was just asking.
DAX: You were criticizng. Again. Relax. She's not going to reject a prospective daughter because the var'Hama candles in her welcoming display were replicated.
Come in. Tuq son bosh mok A'Beh Sirella koh. E'Gagh vet moh.
Sirella: What is he doing here?
Worf: I meant no disrespect-
SIRELLA: Then leave.
Sirella (continued): Your worthiness to join our House will now be judged according to the traditions of my family.
Dax: I am prepared, my lady.
SIRELLA: I doubt that. A Klingon woman would find it difficult to gain my favour. For an alien, it will most likely be impossible.
Dax: I like a challenge.
SIRELLA: I will not have my authority challenged by you.
DAX: That's not what I meant.
SIRELLA: If you cannot say what you mean, say nothing at all. The evaluation will begin tomorrow morning. Have the traditional meal prepared before I arrive. And in the future, if you cannot trouble yourself to make real var'Hama candles, try not to use such obvious fakes.
Later in the Rotarran's ready room
Worf: You never told me that your wife was opposed to this marriage.
MARTOK: Sirella is a woman of strong convictions. She believes that by bringing aliens into our families we risk losing our identity as Klingons.
WORF: That is a prejudiced, xenophobic view.
