Jake: So how's everything at the Academy?
NOG: Jake, they call it the Academy, but what it really is is school.
Jake: I want to hear about it.
NOG: It's a lot of work. Lots of classes, lots of studying. I'm doing okay. Now where are those tube grubs?
(Later, the last of the satisfied customers are leaving.)
Joseph: Good night. You come back soon. Come on, Ben. I've got a nice bottle of cognac I've been saving for a special occasion, and I think this qualifies.
SISKO: I think you're right.
Ben and Joseph leave...
NOG: Ah. There's nothing like a full stomach to make life worth living.
JAKE: So, you going to tell me what's on your mind or not?
NOG: What do you mean?
JAKE: I mean you didn't stay here until closing just to get one more root beer. Something's up.
NOG: My friend the writer. Always looking for a good story.
JAKE: If you don't want to tell me, fine. Don't tell me.
NOG: It's nothing. It's stupid.
JAKE: All right. Forget about it.
NOG: It's just the Academy is different than I thought it would be.
JAKE: Different how?
NOG: Some of the cadets. They're kind of standoffish, especially the upperclassmen.
JAKE: Because you're a Ferengi?
NOG: That's what I thought at first. But then I heard some of the other freshmen complaining about the same thing.
JAKE: Complaining about what?
