An incredibly slow night at Quarks leaves a drunken Klingon as their only patron. The Klingon asks for a line of credit, which Quark at first refuses, but changes his mind once the Klingon becomes agitated. However, before Quark can say anymore, the Klingon attacks him with a knife. In the ensuing scuffle, the Klingon pierces his own heart with the blade. In the aftermath, business begins to boom at Quark's as rumors spread, from Quark's own tall tale, that he defended himself valiantly against the Klingon warrior. Meanwhile, with the threat of the Dominion ever present, most of Keiko's students have relocated to Bajor so Keiko shut down the school.
