DS9: Family Business

Ok so just in case you're wondering-- I went ahead with the dental work. I started the process of getting a thing that's caused me pain and grief for twenty years fixed. In about two weeks, I'll update you and tell you the whole story!

Actually, the day I had my work done, I came home and watched the Ferengi-heavy episode of DS9, "Family Business" in which we meet Moogie (Quark/Rom's mom) who's in a lot of trouble with the Ferengi Commerce Authority. Her offense? Earning profit while female. Crazy ass Ferengis.

Anyway, Moogie is fantastic and all the stuff that comes out about Quark's family dynamic and his late father is surprising, sweet, and satisfying. Additionally, Jeffrey Combs makes a return as Liquidator Brunt and he is especially smarmy:

Basically the Ferengi version of the world's most dogged IRS agent

This episode became especially pertinent when Moogie offered to sharpen Rom's teeth just like she used to do when he was a kid:

I watched Rom relish his dental treatment while my mouth was still sore and my gums were puffy and red. I felt hopeful about my own problems being put to rest. Then, I pretty much rolled over on the couch and fell asleep.
