* SlapSlapKiss: There's no kiss at the end and tons of slapping otherwise, but Grilka is affectionately grateful to Quark for his defense of her House.

* HonorBeforeReason: Played VERY straight this episode. Any like minded Ferengi would have pulled ScrewThisImOuttaHere.

* HonorBeforeReason: Played VERY straight with Klingon Honor this episode. Any like minded Ferengi would have pulled ScrewThisImOuttaHere.ScrewThisImOuttaHere And Quark nearly did so.



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Rom and Quark attempt this but Grilka stops them both and chews them out for trying to do so. This leads Quark to TakeAThirdOption.

** Averted with Quark- despite his reputation as a Ferengi, and thus as people who would rather wheel and deal, or outright ''run''- Quark uses this reputation to stand up to D'Ghor and deliver one of the best "The Reason You Suck Speeches" in Star Trek.

** Averted Initially played straight and then averted with Quark- when he is confronted with a duel with D'Ghor, he initially decides to cut his losses and run. He later changes his mind: despite his reputation as a Ferengi, and thus as people who would rather wheel and deal, or outright ''run''- Quark uses this reputation to stand up to D'Ghor and deliver one of the best "The Reason You Suck Speeches" in Star Trek.



* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Quark gives a grilling one to his would-be executioner.

to:

* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Two of them.
** First Grilka gives one to Quark when he attempts ScrewThisImOuttaHere:
-->'''Grilka''': I thought you were different. I thought you had something in here (points to chest). But all you have in there is a piece of Latinum. And it is a pretty small piece at that.

** Bluntly pointed out from Gowron to D'Ghor when the latter is ready to execute an unarmed Quark. Honor really is paramount in Klingon society.

* PlanetOfHats: Very interesting subversion. Quark (a Ferengi) and D'Ghor (a Klingon) both take off their race's hat. D'Ghor acts like a typical Ferengi (using MONEY to try to bring down a Klingon house), while Quark shows Klingon honor and stands up to a challenge with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech that is so good even Gowron (the Klingon chancellor) commends him. "A brave Ferengi, who would have thought that possible?"

* BatmanGambit: How Quark gets out of having to fight a duel with D'Ghor. Instead of attempting to put up a fight, he throws away his weapon, pointing out that him against D'Ghor is basically [[CurbStompBattle an execution anyway]]. By refusing to fight, he removes all pretense of D'Ghor defeating him in 'honorable combat'. When D'Ghor attempts to kill him anyways, Gowron summarily rules against him.

* [[EveryoneHasStandards Even Klingons Have Standards]]: Dueling is perfectly fine, but using ''money'' to achieve one's aims is a step too far for the Klingons.
