* 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.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* [[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.

* BelligerentSexualTension: Mostly one-sided, as Grilka has no love for this weak Ferengi she has to marry in order to keep her House safe from D'Ghor's treachery. But by the episode's end, Grilka is genuinely grateful for what Quark did and recognizes Quark's bravery in coming back to fight for her (House's) honor.



** His facial expression also suggests even ''he'' knows this whole episode is ''crazy'' and best left hand-waved off.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilCannotComprehendGood: More like "D'Ghor was so busy acting like a Ferengi he forgot about Klingon codes of honor."


Added DiffLines:

* {{Irony}}: Quark - A Ferengi - outwits and bests D'Ghor - A Klingon who had become as Greedy [[PlanetOfHats as Ferengis are known to be]] - by being ''better'' at having a Klingon sense of Honor.

Added DiffLines:

** 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.


Added DiffLines:

** Averted with the Klingons- well, most of them (D'Ghor obviously an exception). Watching Quark attempting to explain profits to them is hilarious. At least one turns the Ferengi PADD sideways in an attempt to understand it.

-->'''Quark''': 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 honour 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 honour, 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.

* OutGambitted: D;Ghor plots to use Quark's embellished tale of Kozak's death as justification he died in honorable combat. This would deny Grilka's claim for special dispensation that would allow her to rule the house despite being a woman. Grilka then uses that fact to marry Quark under a ritual that would keep her house from becoming dead.
