* DidntThinkThisThrough: Jake didn't take a minute to consider that maybe a double-date with a Ferengi isn't such a good idea.

* DownerEnding: Good night, sweet Bareil, and flights of Prophets sing thee to thy rest.



* HonorBeforeReason: Bashir does everything he can to keep Bareil alive, but insists that he cannot take part in the negotiations since being alert is gradually killing him. Bareil refuses, wishes to fulfill the will of the Prophets even at the cost of his life.

Added DiffLines:

* DeadpanSnarker: When Jake admits that he kinda forgot that Nog is a Ferengi. (He was speaking metaphorically and culturally, not biologically.)
--> '''Nog:''' You forgot? To most people, [[RubberForeheadAliens the lobes]] are a dead giveaway!

Added DiffLines:

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Nog acts like he knows more about women than Jake -- and then proceeds to ruin their double-date.


Added DiffLines:

* TheScapegoat: Bashir is convinced that Winn will use Bareil as this if the negotiations fail.

Added DiffLines:

* MythologyGag: Nog says "I don't even know what a Tholian looks like!". At this point, neither have the viewers.


* TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth: Bareil, an honorable and good man, is reduced to a monotone shell thanks to Winn. His death is almost a relief.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Winn only needs Bareil alive long enough to conduct the negotiations. Once the treaty is signed, she argues for pulling the plug on him. Unusually for this trope, Bareil agrees with her.

* MandatoryLine: Quark only appears at the end while catering the party and presenting Kai Winn with a new dessert he's named for her.


* ContinuityNod: The positronic matrix is of course a reference to [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Data and the other Soong-type androids]]. Appropriately enough, the positronic matrix half of Bareil's brain gets replaced with is looking quite similar to Data's brain.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: Bashir, of course, is trying to save his patient as a doctor should. But Kai Winn isn't wrong when she points out that Bariel is freely choosing to prioritize the negotiations, and that Bashir is obligated to respect his wishes.

Meanwhile, Jake tells Nog about his date, which causes the Ferengi to invite himself along and turn this into a double-date. Naturally, this double date goes as well as you'd expect with a member of a species that practices government-sanctioned misogyny, as Nog is incredibly rude to his date and ends with him storming off. In the more serious plot, the Cardassians are able to play Kai Winn's uncertainty and indecisiveness in order to make more serious demands. Unfortunately, her constant meetings with Bareil from his hospital bed are putting a severe strain on his body. Bashir is forced by Bareil to use an experimental drug which has been known to result in organ failure in order to keep the negotiations alive.
