Stardate not given: Quark’s bar is audited by the Ferengi Commerce Authority when he is charged with negligence in taking care of his mother. As it happens, she has made profit on the Ferengi homeworld, a capital crime in their male-dominated society, so Quark and Rom head home to deal with the problem. While Rom can’t help but admire his mother’s lobes for business, Quark is prepared to stop at nothing to wring a confession out of her. If she doesn’t surrender her profits, Quark will have to pay.
