NOG: I think they mean the trees and stuff.
SISKO: Quark, this is as close to paradise as you're going to get. All you need to do is allow yourself to see it.
QUARK: I can tell you what I see in two words: exploitable resources.
SISKO: I suppose you want to cut down all these trees and start strip mining the entire planet.
QUARK: As a wise man once wrote, 'Nature decays, but latinum lasts forever.'
(Quark scratches behind his ear)
NOG: Rule of Acquisition number one oh two.
Quark: Good lad. Nog, I have some ointment in one of my bags. Get it.
SISKO: What's the problem?
Quark: Oh, I get a mild reaction now and then.
SISKO: To what?
SISKO: Perhaps you'd be more comfortable sleeping on the runabout.
QUARK: And miss all the fun? Never. Besides, I'm really looking forward to our getting to know each other better.
(Sisko gazes to heaven, then walks on)
(Further on, they are resting by a tree and lots of flowers as Quark paints bright aqua ointment on his lobes.)
QUARK: Ahh, that's much better. Now, if it only wasn't so hot.
SISKO: I hadn't noticed.
QUARK: It isn't the heat so much as the humidity. And the insects, the stench of these flowers... I'm glad we could talk like this. There's nothing like facing the wilderness to bring people closer.
Sisko: The answer is still no, Quark.
[Don't ever change, Quark. ]
QUARK: No? No to what?
SISKO: I'm not going to allow you to sell merchandise over the station's monitors.
QUARK: Why not? It's a brilliant idea. With my connections, I could offer a whole range of merchandise which normally couldn't be acquired in this sector.
Sisko: Are you still trying to move those self sealing stem-bolts Quark?
