* InsistentTerminology: Don't tell Lwaxana she's getting ''old''! Bashir wisely starts referring to Zanthi as a common affliction of the, eh, ''mature'' Betazoid.

* CrackPairing: InUniverse, some of the odd latent attractions that emerge in the wake of Lwaxana's influence make sense, though they're impractical, as with Jake developing a PrecociousCrush on Kira and Jadzia getting sweet on her longtime friend (and protector) Sisko when Bareil develops a roving eye for her. Since Bashir was [[CasanovaWannabe always hitting on every attractive woman in sight]] and Kira's on the rebound from Bareil's apparent disloyalty to her, their sudden romance makes some sense too. The only pairing that leaves all the other characters scratching their heads in bewilderment is Quark suddenly throwing himself at the HappilyMarried Keiko. You don't have to be Lwaxana Troi to hear them all thinking ''[[FlatWhat what]]'' when he starts making aggressively amorous advances on her.



* LoveIsInTheAir: Lwaxana's Zanthi fever caused her to project her emotions onto the people around her, the emotion in this case being lust. However, Bashir points out that people are nevertheless acting on latent attractions.

* SeductionProofMarriage: While almost everyone else is going loopy and falling in love, Miles and Keiko don't show even the slightest hint of attraction to any third party. As Miles says near the end when Keiko teases him for not having a latent attraction to her, "Nothing latent about it."

* {{Squick}}: Sisko is very disturbed when Dax starts coming on to him, most likely in part because Dax was an old man for the better part of their friendship. Surpassed only by Keiko's expression when Quark starts rubbing his ears on her.
