Summary: Depressed over his lot in life -- especially being blacklisted by the Ferengi Commerce Authority -- Quark goes to his homeworld of Ferenginar for some comfort from his mother, Ishka. The free-thinking Ishka is sympathetic, but clearly uneasy over his declaration that he will be "living" with her for an unspecified period of time. Quark soon learns the reason behind her uncertainty. When he enters his old bedroom, he finds Grand Nagus Zek -- the Ferengi leader -- hiding in the closet! It turns out that Ishka and Zek are in love. When Quark discovers an underhanded way to get a new business license, will he sacrifice his mother's happiness in order to regain his standing in Ferengi society?
