ODO: (the back of his neck is very wet) Odo to Ops. Odo out.
LWAXANA: Odo, turn around.
ODO: I can’t. It’s beginning.
LWAXANA: It’s all right.
ODO: You don’t understand. No one has ever seen me like this before.
LWAXANA: Not even the scientist who was assigned to you?
ODO: That was different. It was only research to him.
LWAXANA: You don’t have to be ashamed with me.
ODO: I’m not ashamed. It’s a private matter, that’s all.
LWAXANA: How can I make it easier for you?
ODO: You can’t. I’m fine.
Lwaxana holds out her wig 
ODO: What’s that?
LWAXANA: My hair. (Odo turns round) Nobody’s ever seen me like this.
ODO: Why? It looks fine.
LWAXANA: It looks ordinary. I’ve never cared to be ordinary. So you see, Odo, even us non-shape-shifters have to change who we are once in a while.
ODO: You are not at all what I expected.
LWAXANA: No one’s ever paid me a greater compliment.
ODO: I cannot hold my shape any longer.
LWAXANA: Let go. I’ll take care of you.
He falls into her skirt, held out to catch him
