[DS9] Season 4, Episode 25: Body Parts
One of the better Ferengi episodes, maybe because it doesn’t lean too heavily on old Ferengi characters giving outrageous performances. Otherwise it’s what you’d hope a Quark centered episode would be, which is mostly fun, but does have some good insight into Quark’s relationship with greater Ferengi culture. Armin Shimerman and Jeffrey Combs are fantastic of course.
