The Maquis (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) Quotes

  • (Odo) "And one other thing --"
  • (Odo) "How long do I keep him here?"
  • (Commander Sisko) "Forever."
  • (Commander Sisko) "According to Sakonna, the Maquis are going to attack the depot sometime within the next 52 hours."
  • (Gul Dukat) "But she didn't tell you on which colony the depot is hidden?"
  • (Commander Sisko) "She says she doesn't know."
  • (Gul Dukat) "How convenient."
  • (Commander Sisko) "I believe her."
  • (Gul Dukat) "Why? Because Vulcans don't lie?"
  • (Commander Sisko) "As a rule, they don't."
  • (Gul Dukat) "They don't blow up ships either, as a rule."
  • (Commander Sisko) "I just got a communique from Starfleet, congratulating me on my good work, and thanking me for preserving the peace with the Cardassians."
  • (Major Kira) "You deserve it. You prevented a war."
  • (Commander Sisko) "Did I? Or did I just delay the inevitable?"
  • (Gul Dukat) "In Cardassia, the verdict is always known before the trial begins; and it's always the same."
  • (Commander Sisko) "In that case, why bother with a trial at all?"
  • (Gul Dukat) "Because the people demand it. They enjoy watching justice triumph over evil, every time. They find it comforting."
  • (Commander Sisko) "Isn't there ever a chance you might try an innocent man by mistake?"
  • (Gul Dukat) "Cardassians don't make mistakes."
  • (Commander Sisko) "I'll have to remember that."
  • (Gul Dukat) "Anyone can blow up a ship. Ha. But to look your enemy in the eye, knowing you'll remember his face for the rest of your life, now that takes -- a stomach, much stronger than you'll ever have."
  • (Quark) "It all comes down to the Third Rule of Acquisition. You don't know that one, do you?"
  • (Sakonna) "I am not well-versed in Ferengi philosophy."
  • (Quark) "Remind me to give you a copy of the Rules, you'll never know when they'll come in handy. Now, the Third Rule clearly states, "Never spend more for an acquisition than you have to.""
  • (Sakonna) "Logical. But I fail to see how that applies to my situation."
  • (Quark) "You want to acquire peace. Fine, peace is good. But how much are you willing to pay for it?"
  • (Sakonna) "Whatever it costs."
  • (Quark) "That's the kind of irresponsible spending that causes so many business ventures to fail. You're forgetting the Third Rule. Right now, peace could be bought at a bargain price, and you don't even realize it."
  • (Sakonna) "-- I find this very confusing."
  • (Quark) "Then I'll make it so simple that even a Vulcan can understand: the Central Command has been caught red-handed smuggling weapons to their settlers. So every ship that approaches the de-militarized zone will be searched. Without the support of the Central Command, the Cardassian settlers won't be so eager to fight."
  • (Sakonna) "You forget the weapons they already have."
  • (Quark) "They have weapons, you have weapons, everyone has weapons; but right now, no one has a clear advantage. So the price of peace is at an all-time low. This is the perfect time to sit down and hammer out an agreement. Don't you get it? Attacking the Cardassians now will only escalate the conflict and make peace more expensive in the long run. Now, I ask you: is that logical?"
  • (Gul Dukat) "I'm sure he made some rather ugly threats on my behalf, hm?"
  • (Commander Sisko) "He said that you were the one responsible for smuggling weapons into the demilitarized zone. That if the Maquis did not execute you, then the Central Command would; after a comforting trial, I'm sure."
  • (Commander Sisko) "I said I would stop the Maquis. And one way or another, I will."
  • (Quark) "Surely it's no crime keeping company with a beautiful female. You ought to try it, Odo. It might improve your disposition."
  • (Commander Sisko) "Tell Cal Hudson I haven't told Starfleet anything yet. Tell him we can still solve this thing together, but we're running out of time. Tell him I still have his uniform; he can have it back any time he wants."
  • (Cal Hudson) "I never thought I'd see the day when you'd side with a Cardassian against me."
  • (Cal Hudson) "I'm going to miss you, Ben. You've been a good friend."
  • (Commander Sisko) "So have you."
  • (Quark) "Vulcans are a species that appreciate good ears."
  • (Quark) "I hope you're happy."
  • (Sakonna) "I am a Vulcan. My emotional state is irrelevant."
  • (Quark) "Well, I'm a Ferengi, and my emotional state is very relevant. And right now, I'm miserable; and it's all your fault."
  • (Quark) "Look, I know the Cardassians can't be trusted. I know the Central Command would like nothing better than to wipe out all the Federation colonies in the Demilitarized Zone."
  • (Sakonna) "Then you agree with our position."
  • (Quark) "Not for a second. Because your position is illogical."
  • (Sakonna) "Do you propose to lecture me on logic?"
  • (Quark) "I don't want to, but you leave me no choice."
  • (Commander Sisko) "The Central Command wants him dead. That's reason enough for us to want him alive."
  • (Parn) "I am afraid this place has lost its charm since the last time I was here."
  • (Commander Sisko) "You're throwing away your entire life."
  • (Cal Hudson) "And beginning a new one."
  • (Cal Hudson) "We're in a war here, and I intend to win it."
