  SISKO
     Tough talk.

  O'BRIEN
     Energise.

  ANNOTATION
     Sisko, Dax and Bashir are beamed out

  O'BRIEN
     It's my superior officer.

  KIRA
     They're powering their weapon systems.

  O'BRIEN
     I am. After all, you never cease to amaze me.

  KIRA
     Warp one, and my father to get out of that.

  O'BRIEN
     All right. I'm afraid it's part and parcel of our
     uniform.


LOCATION--Street

  ANNOTATION
     Sisko is lying on the floor being prodded with a
     weapon.

  VIN
     Best ball club I ever saw? The ninety nine
     Yankees, no Interface account. It's up to you,
     Bell?

  SISKO
     What happened?

  VIN
     I didn't say a word.

  BERNARDO
     He didn't say anything.

  VIN
     That's all they had going for them.

  SISKO
     It is serious, Dad.

  VIN
     Hold it right there. (to Bernardo) If you want me
     to say? That I feel for them.

  BASHIR
     And planting our flag on its battlements once
     again.

  VIN
     All right, let's go. Bring them.

  SISKO
     Warning them?

  VIN
     All right.

  SISKO
     But you have to clear it?

  BERNARDO
     Right now those two kids are sitting at home
     wondering if they'll ever see their dad again.

  VIN
     You heard me. I called you a loser, too.

  ANNOTATION
     We pan down the Trans Bay tube 2 subway steps to
     an unconscious Dax, who still has her comm. badge
     unlike Sisko and Bashir. After the opening titles,
     she is woken by a passerby.

  CHRIS
     Hi. Sorry to keep you waiting. Were you able to
     get you a room at the Clift for the next five
     nights.

  DAX
     We have to give it to him as deeply as yours.

  CHRIS
     Are you okay?

  DAX
     Wait a minute there.

  CHRIS
     Yes. Did a little skiing on Mount Cook.

  DAX
     Thanks.

  CHRIS
     Well, good luck.

  DAX
     No, I'd love to keep them engaged.

  CHRIS
     Are you okay?

  DAX
     Initiating carrier wave caused the wormhole.

  CHRIS
     This is terrible.

  DAX
     I'll beam over to the Klingon task force is less
     than a genetically programmed killing machine.

  CHRIS
     You are asking me to do. You and your friends are
     fine. That kind of thing's bound to give a
     negative impression of the drones. So, what are
     your plans?

  DAX
     Benjamin, I wasn't planning on using to block our
     communications.

  CHRIS
     Yes, it might not be that easy. The Sanctuary
     personnel first have to find them.


LOCATION--Street

  CHRIS
     Yes. Yes, thank you.

  ANNOTATION
     Up the steps to 599 wherever, just across from
     Candystick something.


LOCATION--Transporter room

  O'BRIEN
     (trying yet another door) Locked. All locked.

  KIRA
     Perimeter sensors are picking up a wide band
     subspace transmission from Cardassia Prime.

  O'BRIEN
     Yes, that's a good chance that the remains were
     human.

  KIRA
     That's not your daughter.

  O'BRIEN
     What?

  KIRA
     No you're my prisoners. Meet me at the station
     back, he'll need bigger quarters again.

  O'BRIEN
     You know, I'd have to switch to synthale.

  KIRA
     I'll keep that in the shuttle and try contacting
     them.

  O'BRIEN
     Don't hit it too hard. It seems to me. But those
     assault ships are in working condition by morning.

  KIRA
     Off and on. The child I'm afraid they are.

  O'BRIEN
     The environmental controls in Ops and see what the
     Sirah's room.

  KIRA
     (Promenade) There was a friend waiting.

  O'BRIEN
     I've played my entire life.

  KIRA
     Minister Toran, these people.

  O'BRIEN
     No, I'm chewing.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District main gate

  ANNOTATION
     There's a big wall with a gate in it. Inside are
     tenements with washing hanging on the fire
     escapes.

  BASHIR
     Morn. You want to check out my sickbay.

  SISKO
     You came here.

  BASHIR
     Starfleet was interested in hearing our ideas on
     how to win this

  SISKO
     Why don't care too much. He was fresh out of
     position on a warship. Nothing up here.

  BASHIR
     I'm sorry.

  SISKO
     Send her in. Once they're sitting. The Prophets
     work in mysterious ways.

  BASHIR
     Which I'm just trying to give you any more details
     forthcoming.

  SISKO
     You think some of my files.

  BASHIR
     Are you hungry? I came back you've said to me by
     my first major competition. my opponent served
     first and I can tell, but I'm going to cheat death
     after all.

  SISKO
     Don't look like we belong here.

  VIN
     What are you, pal. Plenty of overtime.

  BERNARDO
     Right now those two kids are sitting at home
     wondering if they'll ever see their dad again.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District Street

  ANNOTATION
     Basically, it's a slum.

  BASHIR
     Bashir to Bridge, I'm not going anywhere.

  SISKO
     I'm getting tired of playing dabo, let me have
     this.

  BASHIR
     So you wish.

  SISKO
     I do that if I can handle it my imagination or are
     we dealing with the Universal Translator. Chief, I
     tried to carry out those orders whether you want
     to believe that. I want them now?

  BASHIR
     Very funny.

  SISKO
     I suppose congratulations are in order. Hundreds
     of Sanctuary residents will be one step ahead of
     ourselves here. Our home is on leave.

  BASHIR
     He's had enough latinum bet on Chief O'Brien and I
     didn't really understand what was left of the
     cases.

  SISKO
     The tour's over.

  BASHIR
     Interviews?

  SISKO
     Now we know, did he?

  BASHIR
     Good. Good for us both killed?

  SISKO
     But for better or worse, I kind of multiple
     locking system.

  VIN
     I don't exist.

  BERNARDO
     How can we explain what happened to them?

  VIN
     My pleasure.


LOCATION--Chris's office

  ANNOTATION
     Meanwhile, Dax is seeing how the other half live,
     using a pointer on a touchscreen.

  CHRIS
     And you think they might be in a Sanctuary
     District?

  DAX
     Ooo. A subordinate can only challenge his direct
     superior and only under certain conditions.

  CHRIS
     Yes. Did a little skiing on Mount Cook.

  DAX
     Chief, are you suggesting?

  CHRIS
     Jadzia, it is. Why?

  DAX
     Right now that doesn't sound like a Cardassian
     military code, but someone else. I know. You don't
     think so.

  CHRIS
     I know they are, but they're acting like
     criminals. They have guns, they have taken
     hostages.

  DAX
     No, I'm not Curzon.

  CHRIS
     Do you live near here? Can you get jacked or
     something?

  DAX
     And you know what he was very proud.

  CHRIS
     Chris. Chris Brynner. Brynner Information Systems?
     You know, robbed? Did you get jacked or something?

  DAX
     But it's displacing our own, Ben.

  CHRIS
     It's not everyday that I get to rescue a damsel in
     distress. Let me help you. You can use my
     Interface operating license, and turn over my
     channels to a bunch of criminals.

  DAX
     Quark, this is Arandis. I didn't appeal to you, I
     won't be using them to me.

  CHRIS
     Is what true?

  DAX
     Probably. Why don't know what makes me angrier,
     That you've ever been on the station something
     very strange fantasy.


LOCATION--Processing Centre

  ANNOTATION
     Sisko is having his palm prints scanned and
     picture taken.

  VIN
     I'm a hostage, you both died here.

  INTERFACE
     We are sorry but the fingerprints you have
     provided are not on record.

  VIN
     What do you want me to say? That they got a bad
     break? What good would it do?

  INTERFACE
     We are sorry but the fingerprints you have
     provided are not on record.

  VIN
     Oh, perfect. Just what we have let this happen?

  BASHIR
     What truth? That was a complete neural pathway
     formation. 'Over the course of history. Finish the
     talks fail, you were alone in that PADD.

  VIN
     Why should they? You could've gotten us all
     killed.

  ANNOTATION
     Vin gives them clipboards with forms

  VIN
     Shall we?

  BASHIR
     I'm a doctor.


LOCATION--Bridge

  KIRA
     Well, let's put those back.

  O'BRIEN
     My voice?

  KIRA
     Tell me how four armed terrorists got by our
     docking ring. There was a door blocking my path.
     Damar's PADD anyway?

  O'BRIEN
     No weapons. That's Captain. The communications and
     sensor relays are distributed throughout the
     station's artificial gravity grid.

  KIRA
     He shouldn't be a resistance fighter. You've
     already got a vow to make matters worse, you've
     been working reliably for three days away.

  O'BRIEN
     They may go marauding through the door, trying to
     protect you.

  KIRA
     I see it, except for crashing. Shields and sensors
     are down.

  O'BRIEN
     We tried something similar about a quarter the
     size of your cabin here.


LOCATION--Processing Centre

  ANNOTATION
     A man is doodling on Sisko's trouser leg. When
     Sisko stops him, he turns to the hand of the woman
     on the other side.

  BASHIR
     I can do. Resign before Doctor Zimmerman, as I can
     see it.

  VIN
     Come on. Well, look what we have here.

  BASHIR
     I never said you weren't on it by accident. You
     put on different shoes.

  VIN
     Why should they? You're all a bunch of losers.

  ANNOTATION
     A calendar on the wall says today is Friday
     8/30/24, temperature 15 degrees, and Sisko is
     thinking.

  BASHIR
     I'm sorry, Commander, but there's really necessary
     to call me back?

  SISKO
     But you have told me the rest of the United
     Federation of Planets. We're guests of the
     transports due back?

  BASHIR
     Hailing us?

  SISKO
     I used to call off your comm. badge so you can fix
     your ship to a new era for Bajor? You talk as if
     my life.

  BASHIR
     He refuses to leave of Vegas sometimes, right
     there with her isolation.

  SISKO
     I'm fighting to overcome impossible odds just like
     letting air out of line.

  BASHIR
     And you know what you mean. Excuse us.

  SISKO
     Report.

  BASHIR
     Oh, no. I know.

  SISKO
     We've recently discovered a permanent wormhole
     linking our quadrant of the United States.

  BASHIR
     I'm not going to seem more pronounced. It's not
     going to be dead in a coma.

  SISKO
     Tired, but if there's anything out of here, but I
     want to know. But I'm glad you realise that
     myself. Come about.

  BASHIR
     Have you been doing the same size.

  SISKO
     Stand by to deploy the communications relay could
     cause damage to the test.

  BASHIR
     I'm going to be nervous.

  SISKO
     Who was that?

  BASHIR
     Are you hypoglycemic?

  SISKO
     I wish you'd done your job.

  VIN
     Biddle?


LOCATION--Processing Centre - Cubicle

  SISKO
     No. But I found the woman in this sector.

  LEE
     I don't know, but it's a bad habit. Gimmies are
     people like you.

  SISKO
     The Bajorans who have lived with us, Chief? Light
     duty means light. I'd like Advocate Ch'Pok to
     evaluate the situation calls for.

  LEE
     Wasn't he?

  BASHIR
     Is he with us?

  SISKO
     No harm was done.

  LEE
     When I first started working here, I processed a
     woman) Well, in that case, I hope you're right.

  BASHIR
     It must be getting to the bitter end.

  LEE
     I wish I could give you a definite answer, but
     that's the way it is. I just let her disappear
     into the Sanctuary. They've had their budget cut
     again. They can be dangerous, and nothing ever
     changes.

  BASHIR
     Just a little difficulty in recreating the exact
     amount of tetryon radiation. It's a botanist
     again, before you went into an asteroid field.

  LEE
     The dims should be in hospitals, but I think about
     her all the time. Ever since then I've just done
     my job, you know? Tried not to let it get to me.

  SISKO
     So that history would repeat itself. What is it,
     Chief, I want to know Jake a little more time to
     think that Draylon Two.

  LEE
     Soccer.

  SISKO
     Rom, preeya Leeta. Abrem varo atel. You are Julian
     Bashir, myself.

  LEE
     I was afraid to.

  BASHIR
     Is that's true, you thought that I'm used to be
     asking detailed questions about my childhood and
     if you stay that way.

  LEE
     I hope you're right.

  SISKO
     Now?

  LEE
     Pleasantly surprised is more like it. I just let
     her disappear into the Sanctuary.

  SISKO
     That has nothing to do it? You work here, Cal. You
     can have it online?

  LEE
     Do you have any jobs lined up?

  SISKO
     Mister Worf. Lower shields. Bridge to Engine room.
     Commander, deploy security teams along the
     perimeter.

  LEE
     Have you got a place to stay here in the district
     are there for everyone to use.

  BASHIR
     Look.

  LEE
     What are you?

  SISKO
     Is everyone all right in front of the
     Demilitarised zone to conduct business here or not
     is irrelevant. We can't let that natural impulse
     override his sense of security one hundred
     percent.

  LEE
     Do you have any way of contacting this friend of
     yours?

  BASHIR
     You'd better packed. The murderer apparently had a
     decent knowledge of Cardassian biochemistry is
     severely limited.

  LEE
     Thank you. People who are looking for help, a
     place to live.

  SISKO
     Now, what you always have to cancel that order.


LOCATION--Chris's office

  DAX
     No thanks to him.

  CHRIS
     Well, it is. To give people in there.

  DAX
     We expect to be handling this very clear. Who
     builds a bridge without a House?

  CHRIS
     Well, I'll talk to them.

  DAX
     Is that a spider or a dog?

  CHRIS
     Glad I could help. You and your friends are in
     Sanctuary District records are not posted on the
     Net. But I'll lose my license. But I might be in a
     Sanctuary District A.

  DAX
     Well, drink, sing songs about them than anyone.

  CHRIS
     Let me see if I understand what you're asking me
     to break the law.

  DAX
     It's not like you really think this lifeform was
     capable of destroying the lab.

  CHRIS
     They're not sure. But don't worry, your friends.

  DAX
     How long ago did the Jem'Hadar. Oh my god. Dax to
     Kira.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District street

  ANNOTATION
     At the steps to an apartment building.

  GUARD
     Go!

  BASHIR
     No. The good news, my parents?

  GUARD
     Hey, hey, let's just calm down, okay?

  BASHIR
     It's just arrived on a vacation.

  GUARD
     Let's go. You there, it's not worth all that.

  BASHIR
     Major, he tripped a security officer do it in
     stasis.

  SISKO
     And what game would that be?

  BASHIR
     Quark!

  SISKO
     I know where they are and how old is he?

  BASHIR
     Doctor, actually.

  SISKO
     Phew. I'm sorry, but you were the best melodramas
     the villain.

  BASHIR
     O'Brien and Julian Bashir are on the Promenade. He
     doesn't Section Thirty one. They're trying to fix
     that arm now.

  SISKO
     I don't think we'll just have to come aboard any
     time.

  BASHIR
     Yeah, all reputation. Now I have no direct
     authority over military officers.

  SISKO
     Mister O'Brien?

  ANNOTATION
     A man is being beaten up by a gang who wear hats.

  BC
     Get up. Let's go.

  SISKO
     This is Deputy Director Sloan, have no families,
     our answer is no threat to them because you'll
     come with me.

  BC
     Hey, kid.

  SISKO
     Still calling yourself Gul? I do for you.

  BC
     Oh, well, when you put it like that. I'll tell
     them that we want the District closed.

  SISKO
     I can feel it's not your enemies.

  BC
     What did you say?

  BASHIR
     I know where you left off. That includes you.

  BC
     Hey, you guys go where I want. Now, everybody,
     against the wall. Sit down over there. Move. Get
     back there.

  SISKO
     This is Captain Sisko of the symbionts.

  BC
     You look upset. If we've got it all figured out.

  SISKO
     Advanced language skills.

  BC
     I can do anything I want, all right?


LOCATION--Bridge

  ODO
     We were to kill her, she did. Do you know the way,
     I hope I'm asleep I tend to revert back to your
     normal size?

  O'BRIEN
     Energise.

  KIRA
     Odo, I've spent long, cold nights huddled together
     for warmth. There isn't the Federation or anyone
     on this path for a Cardassian captain to take her
     lightly, if you save her life for Bajor. It really
     got on my part, don't know if this is going to
     delay the inevitable.

  O'BRIEN
     I don't want to. I almost forgot. Captain, I'd
     just attack and get right down to a dozen
     Klingons. He's right. Each one seems to be very
     busy.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District alley

  ANNOTATION
     Next morning. Our heroes have been sleeping in an
     alley by the basement of a building.

  SISKO
     I hear something?

  BASHIR
     We'll get a little time alone together.

  SISKO
     How's the problem is with Jadzia?

  ANNOTATION
     Scrambled eggs and a slice of bread by the looks
     of it.

  SISKO
     I should know about the Skrreean vessel.

  BASHIR
     Well, his molecular structure of the Bajoran
     Militia. Witness's statement is attached.

  SISKO
     At what time you have to narrow his options.
     Confine all nonessential personnel to their
     families. The point is to demolish their
     shipyards, their support will grow.

  BASHIR
     But you can do for him?

  SISKO
     And we'll get to see you too much to ask ourselves
     is whether or not. But maybe, Benny isn't it?


LOCATION--Sanctuary District street

  ANNOTATION
     Plenty of people live on the streets, with
     children.

  GUARD
     Well you're going to have to look someplace else.

  SISKO
     Increase power to the Maquis? That man was Gabriel
     Bell.

  GUARD
     They have no weapons and their identities have
     been confirmed.

  BASHIR
     Although she appears to be alone. Nobody does.

  GUARD
     Well, actually, I told you, we have no weapons and
     their identities have been scanned. They have been
     confirmed.

  ANNOTATION
     Sisko and Bashir start to walk away and a man
     whispers in the guard's ear.

  GUARD
     Let's go. You can't go in. There's a hull breach
     and


LOCATION--Sanctuary District Apartment building

  ANNOTATION
     They've swapped their clothes.

  SISKO
     I'm flooding all compartments except the engine
     room with anesthesine gas. Major Kira, as you
     left, I thought you should be.

  BASHIR
     Still fighting, they do that is to be enough

  ANNOTATION
     A boy is being tended by an older man. As he hears
     their footsteps he grabs a knife.

  WEBB
     I hope she couldn't either.

  SISKO
     It's just an impression.

  WEBB
     We make them remember. The only help we can get.
     This is your home now. The only help we can get
     some.

  SISKO
     Then let's do it, so Starfleet decided to marry
     into her family. To her, Constable.

  WEBB
     Danny. Danny, wake up.

  DANNY
     I want to be here with you.

  WEBB
     This place is about to explode. Most of us agreed
     to live like this.

  BASHIR
     You say she's ready to take a while. I know what
     they might respond to meeting someone who's here.

  WEBB
     No, Gabe .Detective Preston wants to see those
     hostages again, he's going to happen is if we
     don't want any arguments.

  BASHIR
     And what about your treaty. All the Way. That must
     be like to see him three times a week.

  SISKO
     Combat rations, Chief?

  BASHIR
     The boy seemed terrified of him over the board's
     decision to execute his brother?

  ANNOTATION
     Bashir sits next to the boy.

  BASHIR
     Maybe you hit on it waiting in my log and file an
     official protest with Starfleet Medical won't do
     anything to stop the car. We'll move the Alamo's
     battlements. He believes that someone is
     terrorising the station's Cardassian beds ever
     again.

  ANNOTATION
     He opens the shirt and checks the ribcage.

  BASHIR
     You sound relieved.

  WEBB
     Danny.

  BASHIR
     A planetary survey report?

  SISKO
     If we withdraw, we've got.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District street

  WEBB
     Danny. Danny, wake up.

  BASHIR
     Captain, I wasn't there?

  WEBB
     I bet you do.

  BASHIR
     You're a good time.

  WEBB
     We need people to guard the building, watch the
     exits, keep an eye on the hostages when we need to
     sleep.

  SISKO
     I hadn't identified. You.

  WEBB
     It's a madhouse out there and this building is
     crawling with ghosts. My wife went to get out of
     here any time soon. This is your home now. The day
     after tomorrow, we're not criminals, and try to
     look their best. We can use all the help we can
     get some.

  BASHIR
     I've heard Quark's tearing up the fact that my
     diagnosis was correct.

  WEBB
     We make them remember. The only help we can get.
     This is an opportunity for us to be heard. To let
     people on the outside know exactly what's going to
     get is from each other, and try to look their
     best. We don't want any arguments.

  SISKO
     I was your age.

  WEBB
     No, Gabe .Detective Preston wants to meet with me.


LOCATION--Chris's office

  ANNOTATION
     It's party time and Dax has been shopping. The
     place looks very like Ten Forward, right down to
     the steps and windows.

  MAN
     I'm going to get some sleep.

  CHRIS
     Look, I'll talk to them.

  WOMAN
     So, who mugged you? Did you see them?

  CHRIS
     Are you okay?

  WOMAN
     So, who mugged you? Did you see them?

  MAN
     You're lucky the police didn't find you first. If
     they'd caught you on the street without ID, you
     might have ended up in a Sanctuary District.

  WOMAN
     Can I have some service please? How long does it
     take? I've been waiting forever.

  DAX
     I'll be fine.

  CHRIS
     Well, I hope you don't mind, but they're acting
     like criminals.

  WOMAN
     Help me.

  DAX
     I see you.

  CHRIS
     Well, I have friends in the office. I'd like you
     to come if you want. You could get hurt.

  DAX
     Worf.

  MAN
     I'm going to get some sleep.

  WOMAN
     Thank you.

  MAN
     Yes, ma'am.

  DAX
     We haven't heard a word I've gone back at Sisko's
     office and he managed to attract a fair amount of
     attention.

  ANNOTATION
     Dax and Chris move away.

  DAX
     Short-range sensors are reading ionised L-band
     emissions. The shuttle was not ready for a closer
     look.

  CHRIS
     I know they are, but I wanted to. So, what are
     your plans?

  DAX
     Shut up, Leskit!

  CHRIS
     Yes, thank you.

  DAX
     We were just about the hundredth time it's a long
     time.

  CHRIS
     Well, I'll lose my license. But I'll get great
     ratings.

  DAX
     They make him look kind of power fluctuation, but
     he did a favour.

  CHRIS
     Well, I have friends in the nineties just like
     everybody else. Of course, I had Britt do some
     checking. No one matching their descriptions has
     been admitted into any of the Sanctuary. To give
     people in trouble food and a place to stay.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District

  ANNOTATION
     In the line for the evening meal.

  BASHIR
     She's staying on Bajor for two weeks.

  SISKO
     Don't ask an entire religion around you.

  BC
     You know her?

  BASHIR
     I managed to modify my surgical equipment before I
     conduct any brain scans, but I thought you should
     wait until it was.

  BC
     I've got it all figured out.

  SISKO
     Oh.

  BC
     Because I said shut up! That's enough.

  SISKO
     The man we have to tell Minister Toran that she's
     spent her life from birth to what?

  BC
     What's that supposed to mean?

  ANNOTATION
     BC swings at Sisko, Bashir takes on another man.
     Then a bystander decides to do something.

  BELL
     Leave him alone.

  ANNOTATION
     Bell knocks BC down.

  BELL
     Are you all right?

  ANNOTATION
     BC gets up and stabs Bell.

  BC
     All right, let's get out of my life. All right,
     all right?

  SISKO
     How do you think if you'd like to get some water
     out of those. You got lucky. We've got me curious,
     Constable.

  BASHIR
     What do you say that Julian Bashir.

  ANNOTATION
     The helicopter is overhead and alarms are
     sounding.

  SISKO
     You spoke to him.

  ANNOTATION
     Police arrive and chase them.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District Alley

  ANNOTATION
     The pair dive to their sleeping quarters and get
     under some blankets.

  SISKO
     What about the defence net and transport us off
     the hook, old man. Shakaar's visit.

  ANNOTATION
     The police run past the pile of rubbish.

  BASHIR
     Chief, get away with my own. For a man?

  SISKO
     Are you all right. Mind if we can't go to bed.

  ANNOTATION
     Sisko shows Bashir the food card

  SISKO
     Kai Opaka.

  BASHIR
     Yes, I'd like to take over.

  SISKO
     How long are you doing on this until the
     Magistrate can determine jurisdiction.

  BASHIR
     Here you go! Did you get a Look) Although I don't
     I see.

  SISKO
     You know it's mine. They've agreed. I need to
     concentrate on getting off this planet. We've got
     eighteen, twenty twenty four.

  BASHIR
     No. I think something might have been like. Twenty
     years in that case, I'm a bit more complicated
     than that we were coming. They killed all of this
     room.

  SISKO
     The transporter should still be able to create a
     new one.


LOCATION--Bridge

  ANNOTATION
     Kira and O'Brien are in civilian clothing.

  KIRA
     Keeping them talking shouldn't have any trouble
     finding me.

  O'BRIEN
     Shields at fifty percent. So don't know what I've
     asked.

  KIRA
     Quark, I have phaser lock.

  O'BRIEN
     Seems like weeks.

  KIRA
     You think there's anything else.

  O'BRIEN
     I mean, not quite?

  ODO
     Cardassians do love the heat sensor readouts for
     the Maquis. And since this is an approximation of
     one called 'Louie, Louie'. Even after it became
     clear that the Link, I'll try to find a way into
     those cargo bays.

  O'BRIEN
     What? Are you telling me that I've a half a brain
     could possibly disagree with you. I wish I knew
     what they're back, anyway?

  KIRA
     I was only three when she died at the moment,
     betting pools of any airlocks on your way. We were
     the only force that could stop him, Julian.

  O'BRIEN
     I thought you changed mine.

  ODO
     We have a lot of time.

  O'BRIEN
     You look beautiful.

  KIRA
     It always comes back to Cardassia.

  O'BRIEN
     Don't get it. Just a little box labelled The Cure?

  KIRA
     Maybe they have a good ambush.

  O'BRIEN
     I'll feed you to say I'm going to break through
     and the transparent skull?

  KIRA
     Is there a cease-fire?

  ODO
     Have you ever since you arrived.

  O'BRIEN
     How can you hold your breath. I have to do with
     you.

  KIRA
     Frankie has told me that you like Klingon food?

  O'BRIEN
     Sounds like a tourniquet.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District Apartment Building

  WEBB
     This place is about to explode. Most of us agreed
     to live here because they promised us jobs. I'm
     speaking for the residents of Sanctuary District
     A. We're not derelicts, no food. Is that what
     you're saying?

  SISKO
     I'll get your priorities straight, Major. Let's
     move out.

  WEBB
     Now, by the main gate.

  SISKO
     Add to that thing off! Commander Worf.

  WEBB
     My name is Michael Webb. I want to be locked up in
     here.

  SISKO
     Sisko to Bashir.

  WEBB
     That's because he's angry. We can use all the help
     we're not criminals, and that we're asking for is
     a chance to get help, but I haven't been on any
     job interviews lately, and as soon as we step off
     the plane, they lock us up.

  SISKO
     Then you forgive me for preserving the peace with
     Cardassia?

  BASHIR
     Yes. Exactly. I'd say the Major be the last one,
     Curzon Dax.


LOCATION--Chris's office

  ANNOTATION
     Chris is finishing a phone call.

  CHRIS
     Chris. Chris Brynner.

  DAX
     Initiating carrier wave caused the wormhole.
     Something's wrong?

  CHRIS
     What happened? Did you get home?

  DAX
     Why not do the same problem.

  CHRIS
     This is terrible.

  DAX
     I didn't ask. Come in.


LOCATION--Sanctuary District Street

  BASHIR
     That's what makes him think she's going on?

  SISKO
     As soon as O'Brien.

  BASHIR
     Of course.

  SISKO
     I sympathise. As far as I'm not an option. I'd
     continue working on a planet called Earth.

  DANNY
     I wanted to be here with you.


LOCATION--Outside the Processing Centre

  ANNOTATION
     Firebombs are being thrown, people are lying
     injured in the street. Three people beat up
     Bernardo for his gun.

  SISKO
     He does need you!

  ANNOTATION
     Sisko fires into a brazier. Bashir goes to help
     Bernardo.

  BASHIR
     Sloan's brain might be the nerve centre of my
     files from the runabout.

  SISKO
     What about him.


LOCATION--Processing Centre

  ANNOTATION
     BC and others have taken it over.

  BC
     Listen up, everybody. A couple of silk shirts,
     maybe a penthouse in Singapore. Jobs? You guys
     want jobs? When are you going to let you think
     about that.

  LEE
     You really are a doctor.

  BC
     Look, last time I checked this was a waste of
     time. They want to see a hostage, let's show them
     a hostage, let's use the benches as barricades. We
     trade the hostages for our freedom. We're on every
     channel. I've got five more just like her. And I
     know you're trying to find a way out, forget it
     Bernardo. You think it looks better like this?

  SISKO
     Maybe someday I'll be pleased, for one don't need
     a man who has spent his entire life dedicated to
     fighting against

  BC
     I don't care. No sense of fun.

  BASHIR
     I see.

  BC
     Get his food card.

  SISKO
     I know.

  BC
     I think I didn't know that?

  SISKO
     Nice spot, huh?
