Improbable Cause Quotes

  • (Elim Garak) "It's been my observation -- that you always act from a sense of justice, or at least what you consider justice. There's no feeling behind what you do, no emotion beyond a certain distaste for loose ends and disorder. You don't know what it means to care about someone, do you? People are just interesting creatures to be studied and analyzed."
  • (Odo) "Is there any point to this?"
  • (Elim Garak) "Only that -- I find it interesting that you ascribe feelings and motivations to me that you know nothing about. Or am I wrong? Tell me; is there one person in this universe you do care for? One person who's more than just an interesting puzzle to be solved? Is there, Odo? Anyone?"
  • (Odo) "If there were, I certainly wouldn't tell you."
  • (Elim Garak) "And that would be a wise decision."
  • (Enabran Tain) "Always burn your bridges behind you. You never know who might be trying to follow."
  • (Commander Sisko) "The question still remains, why would the Romulans want to have Garak killed?"
  • (Odo) "I don't know. Considering those uniforms of theirs, you'd think they'd appreciate a decent tailor."
  • (Commander Sisko) "Someone tried to kill you, Garak. Whoever it was may try again, so if I were you, I would give this matter some serious thought."
  • (Elim Garak) "Well, let me see. I mean, there's the Nausicaan whose wedding suit I misplaced; and the Yridian I owe money to; and of course, there's always Major Kira."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "This is serious, Garak."
  • (Elim Garak) "I'm being serious. I don't think she likes me."
  • (Odo) "She doesn't. But if she wanted you dead, you would be."
  • (Elim Garak) "You do have a point."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "Is there anything you need me to do while you're gone?"
  • (Elim Garak) "Like what?"
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "I don't know. Any unfinished business?"
  • (Elim Garak) "Actually, Doctor, there is something."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "What?"
  • (Elim Garak) "If you go into my quarters and examine the bulkhead next to the replicator, you'll notice there's a false panel. Behind that panel is a compartment containing an isolinear rod. If I'm not back within 78 hours, I want you to take that rod -- and eat it."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "Eat it?"
  • (Elim Garak) "Mm."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "You're joking."
  • (Elim Garak) "Yes doctor, I am."
  • (Elim Garak) "You wanted to see me."
  • (Odo) "I have bad news for you. Major Kira has an airtight alibi."
  • (Enabran Tain) "Cunning, isn't he? He makes a racial slur within earshot of two Romulans, putting me in the position of either defending them, thus giving away my allegiance to them, or letting the comment pass, in which case he's managed to plant a seed of discord between us."
  • (Odo) "Frankly I don't find any of this interesting. You both go to such lengths to hide the true meaning of your words, you end up saying nothing."
  • (Enabran Tain) "I think you'll find when I have something to say, you won't have any trouble understanding it."
  • (Enabran Tain) "Ah, Garak. It's good of you to come. It spares me the trouble of having to send someone else to kill you."
  • (Informant) "It has occurred to us, and we're ready for it if it should happen. But it doesn't make any sense."
  • (Odo) "Does war ever make sense?"
  • (Informant) "Still the wry observer of humanoid folly?"
  • (Elim Garak) "The Flaxian left two minutes ago. If we're going to follow him we'd better get moving."
  • (Odo) "What makes you think I'm going to follow him?"
  • (Elim Garak) "I happen to know that you're too dogged an investigator to allow the only witness in this case to simply disappear."
  • (Odo) "Oh, congratulations, your powers of deduction are truly astonishing. Now, if you will kindly disembark, I will get on with my "dogged" investigation."
  • (Elim Garak) "I'm sorry, Doctor, I just don't see the value of this man's work."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "But Garak, Shakespeare is one of the giants of Human literature."
  • (Elim Garak) "I knew Brutus was going to kill Caesar in the first act; but Caesar didn't figure it out until the knife was in his back."
  • (Dr. Julian Bashir) "But that's what makes it a tragedy. Caesar couldn't conceive that his best friend would plot to kill him."
  • (Elim Garak) "Tragedy is not the word I'd use. Farce would be more appropriate."
  • (Garak) "Never tell the same lie twice."
  • (Odo) "That's an interesting way of scrambling a signal."
  • (Elim Garak) "Yes, I thought you might appreciate it on an esthetic level."
