** At one point, Garak advises Sisko to tell the Senator that "good men died getting this data rod" in order to make it more convincing that its crucial evidence. This isn't long after Garak has told Sisko that all his contacts on Cardassia died trying to find ''actual'' evidence on the Dominion. To the careful viewer, its the first indication that Garak's playing a deeper game.

* HopelessWar: The meat grinder has really kicked in, with Starfleet and the Klingons suffering high casualty rates. This is best exemplified by the weekly casualty report.

I don't know about you, but I'd call ''that'' a bargain.

* AssholeVictim: Grathon Tolar. He was already slated for execution by the Klingons. While on the station, he attacked one of Quark's Dabo girls for refusing to "dance" with him (possibly [[AttemptedRape attempting sexual assault]], judging by the state of her clothes), and stabbed Quark for trying to defend her. Judging by how he behaved while on parole, the Klingons may have had very good reasons indeed to want him dead. Garak also may well have selected Tolar due to how expendable he was just as much as his considerable, yet "not quite up to the task" forging skills.

* MagnificentBastard: They're working toward the same goal, but Garak is, from the start, playing a much more complex game than Sisko. If you weren't quite convinced before, "In the Pale Moonlight" demonstrates ''exactly why'' Garak was once next-in-line to head the Obsidian Order.
