SISKO: Can't think of anything I'd rather do.
JOSEPH: Nathan, don't forget to stir the gumbo.
(A seagull lands and morphs into Odo)
BENTEEN: Odo. That was really something. I've never seen you imitate a lifeform before.
Odo: I was just taking a little aerial tour of San Francisco.
ODO: It's quite nice. Not as ancient as the cities on Bajor but almost as impressive.
BENTEEN: It makes me wonder how many other changelings might be flying around up there.
ODO: If all they're doing is flying around imitating seagulls, we don't have much to worry about.
LEYTON: I doubt that other changelings are wasting their time imitating birds. They don't all share Odo's lack of skill when it comes to mimicking humans.
ODO: That's right, they don't. I'm glad you're keeping that in mind.
BENTEEN: Well, if you ask me, that was a pretty convincing seagull.
ODO: Thank you. Though I'm not sure the gulls would agree.
LEYTON: Commander, I think we've taken up enough of Mister Odo's time. Keep practicing. You'll have those birds fooled in no time.
ODO: I know that Starfleet Command has always been a little uneasy about a changeling working in their midst. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the trust you've shown in me. Thank you.
LEYTON: You're welcome. (They shake hands and both their hands turn to goo) Well done, Odo.
(Leyton throws Odo off.)
BENTEEN: Are you all right?
ODO: I'm fine. (Leyton morphs into a seagull and flies off.)
[Sisko's SF office]
Leyton: How did you know he wasn't me?
ODO: I'm not sure exactly. It was as if... I could feel the changeling's hostility toward me.
SISKO: You're the only changeling who's ever harmed one of his own people. I'm sure that hasn't made you many friends.
