Recap / Star Trek Deep Space Nine S 06 E 20 His Way
Odo seeks some advice on romance from newly introduced
, Vic Fontaine.
This episode contains examples of: Adorkable: Odo repeatedly. And You Thought It Was a Game: Odo is duped into taking the real Kira on a date in the holosuite, mistakenly believing that it's only a hologram of Kira that Vic created. Big Damn Kiss Breather Episode: Particularly after the last three episodes. The Cast Showoff: James Darren as Vic Fontaine. Also Nana Visitor singing "Fever." Comically Missing the Point: Since the context is well-outside Odo's experience. Vic: Tell me something. How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Odo: I have no idea. Vic: Practice, practice, practice. Get it? Odo: No. Continuity Nod: Vic was able to create a hologram of Kira due to the events of "Our Man Bashir". Vic: It did take me an hour to get rid of the Russian accent. Quark reminds Odo that he had a year to do something about Kira—referencing the Major's breakup with Shakaar just prior to "Children of Time". Foreshadowing: Vic's opening song is "You're Nobody 'til Somebody Loves You." Love Epiphany: Kira's moment(s) of clarity. Not So Above It All: During a meeting in Sisko's office, Odo begins humming and quietly singing "They Can't Take That Away from Me." Sisko recognizes what he's doing and joins him while going over a report. Shout-Out: Frank Sinatra, Shecky Greene, and Victor Borge are all referenced as performers that Vic is familiar with. The title, of course, is a play on Sinatra's song "My Way." The Matchmaker: Vic Fontaine. They Do: Finally.
