A rematch in the war between Quark and Jeffrey Combs’ Brunt of the FCA. This time, false info leads Quark into thinking he’s dying and, hence, putting his remains up on the market. Brunt means to collect on his contract, and if the hale and hearty Quark won’t allow himself to be killed, he breaks the contract, a rule of acquisition and hence becomes an outcast of Ferengi society.
This is a comic episode, of course, but since Armin Shimerman is the greatest actor on earth, somehow there’s real heart to it. Much is learned about Ferengi culture and about the depth to Quark’s character.
