    I hope this isn't too selfish a request.

    I'm in a sardonic mood and I'd like to hear some nuggets of wisdom from everybody's favorite (former?) Cardassian spy.

    Garak's my favorite DS9 character.

    "Treason, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder."
    "Paranoid is what they call people who imagine threats against their life. I have threats against my life."

    Odo: "You'd shoot a man in the back?"
    Garak: "Well, it's the safest way, isn't it?"

    This one's also good.

    GARAK: I've locked him in his quarters. I've also left him with the distinct impression that if he attempts to force open the door, it may... explode.
    SISKO: I hope that's just an impression.
    GARAK: It's best not to dwell on such minutiae.

    Garak is also my favorite DS9 character. I wish he had been made part of the main cast.

    Anywho here are some of my faves.


    Ziyal: You're intelligent and cultured...and kind.
    Garak: My dear, you're young, so I realize that you're a poor judge of character.


    Odo: I think you secretly enjoyed destroying your own shop.
    Garak: Well, I admit watching it burn wasn't exactly tragic.


    Bashir: Assuming you're not a spy...
    Garak: Assuming...
    Bashir: ...then maybe you're an outcast.
    Garak: Or maybe I'm an outcast spy.
    Bashir: How could you be both?
    Garak: I never said I was either.


    Garak: Well, it's just that... Lately I've noticed everyone seems to trust me. It's quite unnerving, I'm still trying to get used to it. Next thing I know, people are going to be inviting me to their homes for dinner.
    O'Brien: Well, if it makes you feel any better, I promise I will never have you over.


    Garak: Toran!
    Gul Toran: It's Gul Toran now.
    Garak: They made you a Gul? I didn't realize the situation on Cardassia had gotten so desperate.


    And of course this scene which was already said, but it's my favorite~~~!!!!

    Bashir: What I want to know is, out of all the stories you told me which ones were true and which ones weren't?
    Garak: My dear doctor...they're all true.
    Bashir: Even the lies?
    Garak: Especially the lies.

    :adore: :adore: :adore:
