Odo/Kira [ST: DS9] Appreciation # 12: "I love and respect Rene more than I can say right now. This beautiful soul. My heart...." - Nana




O: Everybody expects me to be dour and suspicious. I don't want to disappoint them.
K: If only they knew the real you.
O: That is the real me ... at least as far as everybody else is concerned.




O: Why waste my time ... romance is for Solids.
K: You are a Solid eighteen hours a day. I'm sure there are plenty of women on this station who would be very interested in you ... if you gave them a chance.
O: I'll keep that in mind, Major.

Odo & Kira Appreciation



O: Colonel.
K: I wish you'd stop doing that.
O: Doing what?
K: Calling me by my rank. I was promoted two months ago. Besides, it sounds so formal.



O: You're probably angry.
K: Why?
O: I hid my true condition.
K: Odo, I've known all along.



O: I don't want the last thing I see to be pain in your eyes.
K: You'd be surprised how well I can hide my feelings ... when I need to.
O: Not from me. You have to go, Nerys.
K: All right... I've got so much to say, I don't know where to begin.
O: Just say you love me. That's all I've ever cared about.





O: You're as beautiful as I remember. You can't know how I've longed to hear your voice ... see your smile.
K: Odo, what's gotten into you?
O: There's something I want you to know ... something I've wanted to tell you for two hundred years. I love you, Nerys. I've always loved you.



K: You changed so much, Odo. I don't just mean the way you look ... you used to be so closed off.
O: I have changed. And the Odo you know will change too, if you're patient with him.



VF: Talk about your cranky aliens. You two really are made for each other.



O: You know, Nerys, observing humanoid relationships ... and being in one are very different things.
K: Like night and day.



O: I could just as easily be someone or something else.
K: I know that. But this is what you have always chosen to be. A man. A good and honest man. The man I fell in love with.

K: I'm sorry I can't link with you.
O: It doesn't matter, Nerys. I love you.




O: I know the danger, Major. I've had to walk this line before, during the Cardassian Occupation. I can do it again. But this time I won't be alone. I'll have you there to help me.
K: That's right, you will.




O: That's kind of you to say.
K: No, it's true. When I'm with you, things don't seem as bad ....




O: You find something amusing, Major?
K: Oh, I just think you look so ... cute ....




K: I've been meaning to ask you. Why don't you wear that belt anymore?
O: I don't know. Didn't seem to serve a purpose. It's not as if I needed it to hold my pants up.




O: I'm so vulnerable to her. All she has to do is smile at me and I'm happy beyond reason. A minor disagreement between us and I'm devastated. It's absurd. Sometimes I wish I could reach inside myself and tear out my feelings for her. But I can't.



O: Nerys, please, tell everyone I'll miss them.
K (with sly smile): Even Quark?
O: Even Quark. [He studies her for a long moment, their gentle teasing humor giving way to the enormity of the moment] But most of all ...
K (stopping him by placing her hands on his face): I know.




K: Why is it every time I think I have you figured out, you do something to surprise me? Like tonight. Where did you get the idea to celebrate our one-month anniversary in Paris?
O: Well, some mysteries are better left unsolved.




K: The Kai would say that you lack faith.
O: And you would agree.
K: I just don't see how people make it through the day without it.
O: We manage.

K: I heard that you told the Captain I was willing to give my life to serve the Prophets. I appreciate that you respect my beliefs.

K: I want to know you ... the way you really are.



K: When did you become an optimist?
O: It must've been that day in front of Quark's ... when we kissed for the first time.
K: That was some kiss, wasn't it?
O: Changed my life.




O: Nerys, just tell me one thing. If you'd known how I felt about you years ago ... if I'd said something, do you think things might've been different?
K: Maybe.


Highlights:

Necessary Evil - Odo flashbacks and remembers when he first saw/met Kira, during the Occupation. A pretty girl like you shouldn't be sitting alone.
Crossfire - Odo preparing for his morning meeting with Kira, and adding the belt to his uniform because she said it looked good on him.
Children of Time - *sigh* Odo's feelings are revealed to a stunned Kira, who (thanks to the Odo from a different timeline) sees a different side to Odo. I love you, Nerys. I've *always* loved you.
His Way -the kiss! That was smokin' hot !
The Reckoning -Odo & Kira lovey-dovey scenes ! That IS the real me ... at least as far as everybody else is concerned.
Image in the Sand - Odo & Kira on the upper level of the Promenade, reflecting on their first kiss. That was some kiss, wasn't it? Changed my life
Shadows & Symbols -Odo stands by Kira's side as she stands up to a whole fleet of Romulan warbirds. Things get extra tense, and without turning to look at him (she knew he was right there behind her), Kira asks him if he's still glad he came along. I wouldn't have missed it for anything.
Treachery, Faith, & the Great River - that massage at the beginning!
Chrysalis -Odo & Kira subconsciously holding hands at the table ... just so natural for them to do that, they don't really notice it until Serena calls attention to it.
Covenant -the scene at the beginning, when Odo is asking if he can go to services with Kira ... so that they can spend more time together. Yep, he's in love!
Chimera -The whole episode rocked. The love scene at the very end is the most romantic love scene I've ever seen. I want to know you ... the way you really are.
Badda-bing, Badda-bang - Odo kisses Kira's shoulder as they're getting ready to "pull off the caper"
Tacking into the Wind - When Garak breaks the news to Kira about Odo's worsening condition, she says she's known this whole time. I love him, Garak ... you think I really wouldn't notice? Also, a touching embrace with Odo and Kira at the end of the episode. Nerys ...stay here ... with me.
Extreme Measures -Kira and Odo exchange "I love yous" while Odo lays on his deathbed. Kira presses her lips to Odo's, despite his hesitation and concern at his appearance



O: Well, I was hoping our relationship was going to be a long and happy one, but I suppose I'm willing to settle for short and exciting.
K: What's that supposed to mean?
O: I take it you're going to be commanding the blockade?
K: That's right.
O: Then I'm going to be there with you.
K: You don't have to do that.
O: Yes, I do.





O: You humanoids ... when it comes to emotional attachments, you never see the obvious.



K: Still glad you came along?
O: I wouldn't have missed it for anything.




O: Well, I hope this taught you a lesson.
K: What's that?
O: Never play springball against a Changeling.
K: Just for that, next time I'm not going to let you win a single point.

K: My last job was at a replicator plant on Bajor.

K: I hit a supervisor for trying ... what I thought you were trying a few minutes ago.
O: Well, I appreciate your restraint this time.

Wanted to start off the thread (after the OP ... hope that's ok), with this lovely image of Nana's tweet after Rene passed away.

René Auberjonois Remembered by ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ Castmate Nana Visitor

René came into my life the way he did for so many others; I loved his performance on “Benson” and looked for him in movies and TV ever after. As a young actor, I could see every inch of him was trained to tell stories: His body, face and voice moved with ease and authority. I wanted to be like that. I would watch other actors I admired in those early days and play the game of “Who would you want to sit next to at dinner if you got the chance?” and René was always on that list.

After working with him on “Deep Space Nine” for seven years of long days and nights, and then 20 years of doing “Star Trek” conventions around the world with him, I was lucky enough to spend many dinners with him. And he was even more fascinating as a friend than I could have imagined. His stories about the work he had done and the people he had crossed paths with had lots of lessons in them and always came from a humble human perspective. When we acted together, I always had the feeling that I was playing tennis with a better player than me and felt him stretch me. I wanted to bring even more than I felt I had to the scene, because I didn’t want to waste his time.

When I visited him, a few weeks before his death, we knew it might be the last time and he gave me a present. He said, “Nana, you are one of those actors who act from their souls”. That was exactly what I loved about him. Even though his face was completely hidden by a latex mask on “Star Trek,” you could see his soul. And with the speed of the animated Genie in the “Aladdin” movies, he could go from fury to complete self deprecation to kitten sweetness to clown. When he was fed up after maybe 14 hours of being in the makeup that prevented him from being able to eat or drink in a normal way, he could have the ominous energy of a volcano about to erupt, and I would steel myself for what could come. And then suddenly he would pull out pictures of his wife Judith and his children Tessa and Remy. He would look at them as if he had never seen this modern wonder of preserving images before and offer them to me and say, ”Aren’t they just beautiful?” and I would say they were, and he would smile inside his mask like a contented child. As the writer Jon Kabat Zinn puts it in “The Full Catastrophe,” he lived the entire human experience without whitewashing the hard bits, while joyfully digging in to the good. When he laughed, it was with every bit of him, and he laughed a lot.

René had many, many friends, and I know we will all miss so much now. We will miss his mastery of being in front of an audience and entertaining them, his deep empathy for when a child goes astray, his passion for a perfect pastry that made only that pastry exist in that moment.

We will miss his enormous talent for being human, and the way he could tell stories about that experience.

Very sad, but also a beautifully written farewell note.

I love their friendship. The Robert Carlyle/Emilie De Ravin's friendship reminded me of Rene and Nana. Two people who are such good friends in real life that when you see them play a couple, it resonates well because of the fondness and familiarity with each other.

When actors genuinely like each other, it really comes across in their interactions on screen.
