YATI : Quark claims he hasn't had a single Starfleet customer all week. Yet we saw O'Brien and Bashir playing darts a couple of scenes ago.
Quote : "Perhaps he's become prematurely aware of life's existential isolation." - Bashir to O'Brien on a possible reason for his baby crying.

Plotline

Quark is deep in debt after being black balled by the Ferengi Commerce Authority. His cousin Gaila offers him lucrative business as an arms dealer - but the moral implications turn out to be deeper than Quark had realised.
