Call anybody you want, they can't do anything to me, not any more, and nor can any of you. I am a human being, dammit! You can deny me all you want, but you can't deny Ben Sisko. He exists! That future, that space station, all those people--they exist in here. In my mind. I created it. And everyone of you knew it. You read it. It's here! Do you hear what I'm telling you? You can pulp a story, but you cannot destroy an idea. Don't you understand? That's ancient knowledge. You cannot destroy an idea! That future--I created it, and it's real! Don't you understand? It is real. I created it. And it's real! It's REAL! Oh God!

VIC: I'll pretend I didn't hear that.

Posted by: Section47 May 30 2015, 08:32 AM
I really am very grateful for all you've done, Quark. That is why I'm going to let you take your hand off my thigh instead of shattering every bone in your body.
--Grillka, The House of Quark

Posted by: Sloan May 31 2015, 02:03 PM
I'm not interested in exposing your secret, Doctor. All I care about is Jadzia. And I promise you, if she dies, I will see to it that the entire planet knows why.
--Sisko, Equilibrium, (referring to the fact hidden from the public that all Trills were capable of hosting symbionts)

Posted by: Gint Jun 2 2015, 02:04 PM
Perhaps the biggest disappointment in my life is that the Bajoran people still refuse to appreciate how lucky they were to have me as their liberator. I protected them in so many ways, cared for them as if they were my own children. But to this day, is there a single statue of me on Bajor?
--Dukat, Sacrifice of Angels

Posted by: LCARS 24 Jun 15 2015, 03:54 AM

--Quark, The Homecoming

Posted by: LCARS 24 Jun 18 2015, 08:19 AM
Lie to yourself if you must, but not to me. You do not hear the warrior's call. I ask again: Why are you here?
--Martok, to Alexander Rozhenko, Sons and Daughters

Posted by: LCARS 24 Jun 20 2015, 04:56 AM
Major, I don't think I've ever seen you looking so ravishing.

This 'wilderness' is my home.
Kira, to Bashir, who had just referred to Bajoran space as the wilderness, Emissary

Posted by: dancer Jul 3 2015, 02:59 PM
Go ahead, kill me. That's why I'm here, isn't it, to be killed? Well, here I am, so go ahead and do it. You all want me to pick up that sword and try to fight him, don't you? But I don't have a chance and you know it. You only want me to put up a fight so your precious honor will be satisfied. Well, I'm not going to make it so easy for you. Having me fight D'Ghor is nothing more than an execution, so, if that's what you want, that's what you'll get. An execution. No honor, no glory. And when you tell your children and your grandchildren the glorious story of how you rose to power and took Grilka's house from her, I hope you remember to tell them how you heroically killed an unarmed Ferengi half your size.
--Quark, The House of Quark

Posted by: LCARS 24 Jul 7 2015, 06:54 PM

Oh, I love a woman in uniform.
--Quark, Emissary

Posted by: LCARS 24 Sep 16 2015, 06:55 PM
Since you are not, in fact, working for the soulless minions of orthodoxy that have hounded my work and plagued my existence, I have decided to open negotiations regarding the sale of a mint-condition 1951 Willie Mays rookie card, without the original packaging or chewing gum.

Posted by: LCARS 24 Apr 15 2017, 12:11 PM
Wait until you get four pips on that collar. You’ll wish you had gone into botany.

Posted by: Section47 May 13 2017, 09:14 AM
I know this is small comfort, but I never intended you any harm.
--Dukat, after killing Jadzia, Tears Of The Prophets

Posted by: Section47 May 18 2017, 08:51 AM
I would not give that man the gnawed bones of my last meal, much less command of a ship.

In fact, as far as I'm concerned, the Ferenginar that I knew doesn't exist anymore. No, I take that back. It will exist. Right here in this bar. This establishment will be the last outpost of what made Ferenginar great. The unrelenting lust for profit. Broik, water the drinks! M'Pella, rig the dabo table! Rom, I want to buy back the bar.
--Quark, The Dogs Of War
