Bashir: it wasn't 7 days, it was 5. 5 days.
SLOAN: Now that's odd, because General Martok said you were gone for seven days.
Bashir: He's wrong. It was 5 days.
Sloan: Why would he lie about something like that?
Bashir: He wasn't lying.
Sloan: You can't both be right.
Bashir: He must have lost count of the days. He was under a great deal of stress.
Sloan: And you weren't?
BASHIR: Human beings are more adaptable to incarceration than Klingons.
SLOAN: Especially when they're genetically engineered?
Bashir: Meaning what?
SLOAN: Let's move on to the matter of your escape from the camp. I'll quote from your own report. "We constructed a transmitter using components from the barracks' life support system. We used it to contact our runabout and beam ourselves out of the camp." Forgive me, Doctor. That sounds a little hard to believe.
Bashir: It's what happened.
SLOAN: Why would the Dominion leave your runabout orbiting the camp unattended?
Bashir: They didn't think we'd be able to contact it.
SLOAN: Why not? They left you everything you needed to build a transmitter. Isn't it more plausible that the Dominion wanted you to escape?
Bashir: Why? Why would they do that?
Sloan: So that you could start working for them.
BASHIR: But I'm not working for them.
SLOAN: How can you be sure?
