Drab HQ. Drab Man laughs about all the Risans running scared and orders the Bolian to increase the feedback in the tectonic stress regulators. "If I do that, there won't be a building left standing on this part of Risa," the Bolian complains. Drab Man grabs the uplink from him. The Bolian thinks they should get to the spaceports. The ground shakes again. "Or at least get out of this room!" Drab Man agrees, and says their work there is done. Björf enters and demands, "The uplink -- give it to me!" Drab Man tells Björf that he and his friends need to get off the planet before they are harmed. "Give us the uplink or the only person who is going to be harmed is you," Dax says, her hands on her hips. Björf sticks his hand out. Drab Man reluctantly hands it over, saying, "I thought you were one of us." "Perhaps I was for a time," Björf says, punching at the uplink, "but I believe the Federation will survive the Dominion, the Borg, and people like you!" Hah! Drab Man gets apoplectic with rage over Björf turning his back on the Federation and the self-indulgence and sloth the Federation is currently reveling in. "You say that we have to return to tradition Federation values, well, I agree! But one of those values [he looks back at Dax, gag] is trust. It is essential that we remember that!" Drab Man yells, "Don't you walk away from me!" and then stupidly punches him. Björf pauses, then grabs Drab Man by the drab collar of his drab suit and tosses his drab body across the room, saying, "I will do as I please!" Dax steps to Björf's side. "I am on vacation," he adds, and takes Dax's arm. Quark, Leeta, La Williams, Dax, and Björf walk on the beach. "Figures -- the weather improves the day we leave," Quark crabs. Leeta coos that she can't wait to get home. "Not that I didn't enjoy myself," she adds. Quark says, "I better go find Bashir. He brought a Whorega-hn down to breakfast and that's the last I saw of him." Jealous? La Williams turns to Dax and Björf and says she hopes they come again. Björf didn't think he'd be welcome. "Well, you still have a lot to learn about our people," La Williams tells him, and turns to Dax, saying, "I never got a chance to say goodbye to Curzon Dax." Screwing him wasn't a good enough goodbye for you? Dax says she's not saying goodbye to her either because she'll be back. They embrace. "And Risa will be waiting," La Williams tells her. She leaves. Dax asks Björf what they do now. "We watch the suns set," Björf tells her. Dax suggests they go swimming instead. "I haven't brought my bathing suit," Björf admits. Thank heaven for small mercies. Dax looks around and smiles, "I won't tell if you won't." Yeah, I don't think you could pain-stick that out of Björf.
