“You’re late. Do you have it? I’ll give you… I’ll give you 50. Yes, I had some parts stolen. I need a new processor board. Teeka, if you’re gonna steal my parts and then sell them back to me, could you at least clean them first as a courtesy? A Jedi? Well, don’t count on it. I’ve heard the Jedi are all but extinct. Here. Well, thank you, Teeka. Goodbye.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“Master Qui-Gon. Master?” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“You’re looking for somebody else. My name is Ben. You must leave. You’ll draw too much attention. You want my help? Take this. Walk into the middle of the desert and bury it in the ground. Stay hidden. Live a normal life. The fight is done. We lost. The time of the Jedi is over. Go back to the town. Let it go.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“It’s just a toy. There’s more to life than your farm, Owen. He needs to see that. There’s a whole galaxy out there. Is he okay? He’s my responsibility, Owen. I’m his uncle. When the time comes, he must be trained. Thank you, Owen.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“What about the Senate? Well, your guard then? Or a bounty hunter? I can’t leave here, Bail. My duty is to the boy… it’s been ten years. I’m not what I used to be. Find someone else. She’ll be better off.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“You should not have come. I can’t. I told you… I’m not the man you remember. I can’t leave the boy. And what if I can’t?” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“Excuse me. I’m looking for a ship. I was tracking its signature. If ever I needed guidance, Master, it’s now. What about some information? I’m looking for my daughter. She was taken, and she’s on this planet. The Jedi are all gone.” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

“I’m looking for a Jedi. A girl has been kidnapped. I need your help to find her. Of course. How much? Goodness, that light is unforgiving. Just that it’s a lot of remotes and magnets. It looks like you just took money from that family. That depends on what you tell me. You’re a bottom-feeder, a rat who preys on weakness. But in my experience, rats know more about the sewers than anyone else. You’ll help me find this girl I’m looking for. You’ll help me? Can I trust you?” — Obi-Wan Kenobi

Grand Inquisitor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney+, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Pictures, Rupert Friend

Grand Inquisitor

“You know who we are. You know what we do? In actuality, I would say the Jedi hunt themselves. Do you know the key to hunting a Jedi, friend? It is patience. Jedi cannot help what they are. Their compassion leaves a trail. For example, in our line of work, rumors ran rampant. Here’s one I heard just recently. It involves a Jedi hiding right here in your lovely saloon. Let’s say ours is a wanderer. Maybe he’s looking for people like him. Comes across this establishment. Nice place. And then he sees you. A man in need. Perhaps the locals are stealing from you. Threatening you. So what is the Jedi to do? Help you and risk exposure? Or move on? No, if he were smart, he’d keep moving, but the Jedi Code is like an itch. He cannot help it. So he steps in and saves your saloon. You offer him a place to hide. Fresh water, shade from the suns, but the stories, they being and they travel quickly. His compassion has been his undoing. Prepare him for interrogation. Scraps are all we have left. He is not yours to find. We are past this, Third Sister. I will not warn you again. You will forget this fixation with Kenobi, or I will relieve you of your duties. Is that clear?”

Inquisitor Reva, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney+, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Pictures, Moses Ingram

Inquisitor Reva

“There. Why chase after scraps? Then we should be hunting bigger prey. Yes, Grand Inquisitor. Consider him forgotten.”

“Or you’ll be punished. Hands go first! That way, when you reach for anything, you think of us. All we want is information. If anyone knows anything about a Jedi… you know something? What’s your name? Owen. Farmer, right? Wife? Kids? They might be. You got a Jedi on that farm, too? Why should I believe you? You protect your family. I like that, Owen. It’s important. You think you could protect them from me? Tell me where the Jedi is, or this man and his family die! The Jedi are cowards. They failed you, abandoned you. There is no point in protecting them. They would not do the same for you. But you can save this man. Save his family. Next time, Owen. I’m sick of wasting time! This place is beneath us! Maybe you’ve been looking in the wrong places. What I’m owed. Maybe you don’t go far enough.”

“He fought beside her father during the war. He’ll come. He won’t be able to help it. The Jedi will hunt himself.”

Fifth Brother, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Disney+, Lucasfilm, Walt Disney Pictures, Sung Kang

Fifth Brother

“Move. Now. Get back. All of you. Out of the way. Back up. You know why we are here. There is a Jedi hiding on this planet. We need to know where he is. You will be rewarded well. Reva!”

“Enough! If you remember anything, rewards will be given. Stand down, Third Sister. Now! Ah! Move. You are too impulsive. The Grand Inquisitor was right. You still want Kenobi. But he’s gone, and you won’t find him. We spent the last ten years looking for him. What is it you think you will gain by capturing him? Be careful, Third Sister. You go too far.”

Princess Leia

“Medical freighter. Pleasure barge, boring. Casino ship? Not bad. Ooh. A Tri-wing. That’s a new one. Ooh. an Aquillian Ranger. Probably scouting for Merson pirates. No? Trader, maybe? Do what? But she didn’t do anything. It’s not like anyone would miss me if I wasn’t there. All I ever do is wave. I’m sorry, Mother. I really am. I promise I don’t do it again. It’s like living in a prison.”

“A trade ship and an Aquillian Ranger. That’s what I said. Hi, cousin. Oh. Thanks, Y-O. It’s good manners. Then I guess I don’t need manners when I’m talking to you. You’re scared of him. Your father. You want him to like you, so you repeat what he says even though you don’t really know what it means. You think being like him will make people frightened of you, but really, you’re the one who’s scared. You’ve never made one decision for yourself in your entire life, and you never will. I may not have seen much, cousin, but I can see that.”

“He was being horrible to everyone. He’s rude to droids. I’d rather be digested by a jakobeast. What happened? The Senate’s boring. It’s people in itchy clothes arguing. I don’t want to be a senator. I’m not even a real Organa. Yes, Father.”

“Why are you here? For what? Help! Help! Help! Help me, please!”

“Let go of me! Let go.”

“Come on, Lola. Come on. Can you untie me? I’m not afraid of you. Lola! My father will rescue me! He’ll send a whole army!”

Breha Organa

“We’re going to be late. Come on, let’s hurry it along. How is she doing? She’s ready? Great. Thank you. Remember, my sister’s whole family is coming. We need their support. So try not to make anyone cry. There will be sweetmallows at the reception after. If you behave, I will let you… she’s either in the cellar, in the kitchen… …or in the woods.”

“Leia Organa! You had to do this today? Down. It’s like raising a Glor-ag. No Lola for the rest of the day. Shut her down. I mean it. If you behaved as well as you climb, you’d be a senator already. You’ll have to change in the speeder. Come. I’d miss you. Then do more than wave. You get out of this what you put into it. You know, I can feel you doing that. Come on. A prison.”

“Don’t encourage her. Sister. A drink, senator?”

“He’s your cousin. You have to rise above, Leia. You owe him an apology.”

“Thank you. I thought you said you’ve really got through to her. I know who she’s like. Send a unit.”

“She needs you, Obi-Wan. We can’t trust anyone else.”

Senator Bail Organa

“Right on time as always. Anything good today? Probably scouring for pirates. All right. Come now. Let’s get this over with. Greetings.”

“There are still some issues that we need to address. Slave labor, taxation of the Outer Rim… ah. Thank you.”

“I wanted to live out way past Kathou when I was your age. Chase purrgil, you know? I had a whole plan. I got older. Had to find some other adventures. Started chasing your mother instead. This is your future, Leia. In a few years, you’ll be of to university, then Junior Senate. Well, it may seem so… it is why you’ll probably be one of the best. What? Don’t ever say that. You are our child. You are an Organa in every way. One day, this planet will look to you, Leia. There are many ways to lead. You just have to find yours. Plus, imagine the look on your cousin’s face When you get to boss him around for real. But for now, we will… apologize. Hmm. I’ll wait for you downstairs.”

“She’s gone. You know what she’s like. She can’t be far.”

“We don’t know who it was. No ransom, no leads. Whoever they are, they knew where she would be. They… they were waiting. We cannot let this become public. It would draw too much attention. Only you know how important she really is, Obi-Wan. If Leia is discovered… what about your duty to his sister? She’s as important as he is.”

“She’s headed for Daiyu. They hid their signature behind a freight transport. The ship is on its way there now. She’s my daughter, Obi-Wan. You’re going to have to be! This isn’t about the boy, and you know it! You’ve made mistakes. We all did. It’s the past. Move on. Be done with it. You couldn’t save Anakin, but you can save her. There is no one I trust more with my child than you. Please, old friend. For her. One last fight.”


“Hello, Princess. Just waiting. For you.”

“Shut her up.”

“Give it time. No one’s coming for you.”

“Just get this over with. You sure he’s gonna come?”

Space Thug

“This is a bad idea. Kidnapping kids… you think it’s gonna work?”


“Should have brought some soap. I could smell you from Anchorhead. Do you have the credits this time? A hundred. It’s very rare. They don’t make these anymore. Seventy five. I’ve got a tribe to feed. Trouble with your vaporator? You’re in luck. Cleaning costs extra. You need anything else? I have a whole new batch of salvage. Here, look… we stripped that Jedi’s old ship. Found it out in the wastes. One escaped across the Dune Sea. Inquisitors and everything. Hope we get more of them. Good for business… you know, you really do stink.”

Owen Skywalker

“Grab two of those canisters. Luke? Luke! Did he go back inside. He’s run off. Luke? Luke?”

“I want you to stay away from him. We don’t need anything from you, Ben. It’s a lot more than that. I’m asking you to leave us alone, Ben. I mean it. You don’t care if he’s okay. You care if he’s showing. We talked about this. Like you trained his father? Anakin is dead, Ben, and I won’t let you make the same mistake twice. So, leave him on the farm with his family, where he belongs.”

“Owen. My family’s of no concern to you. No. I have no love for the Jedi. Jedi are vermin. I kill vermin on my farm. I didn’t do it for you.”


“You’re wasting your time. You know that, right? You’ll never find us all.”

“Master? I thought I saw you in the town, but I wasn’t sure. I didn’t think you’d survived. You’re making some kind of mistake. I’m sorry, my name is Nari. Um, there’s no mistake. What are you doing here, Obi-Wan? Come on, please. Please. You have no idea what I’ve been through. But I have nowhere to go. They’re hunting me. You have to help me. What about the people that need us? What about the fight? What happened to you? You were once a great Jedi.”


“Inquisitors. You hunt Jedi.”


“She insisted you would find it amusing, Your Highness.”

Breha’s sister



“Profits have been good. After the disaster of the Republic, the Empire is finally lining some pockets. I didn’t come here to end slavery, Bail. I acme here to eat your food. Save the bleeding heart for the Senate.”

Kayo’s son

“You thank your droids? You don’t need manners when you’re talking to a lower life form. You know the difference between you and me, cousin? I know things. My father says they never let you leave this planet. They don’t want anybody to know about you because you’re not one of us. You’re not even a real Organa.”


“Your highness. My pleasure.”


“Princess. Oh, there they are. Princess. Hi, Princess.”

Tattooine Resident

“Well? You coming or not?”


“No, no. I’m not gonna… look, I don’t know what to tell you. If it says ‘delayed,’ mine’s gonna say the same thing. I can do nothing about the weather on that planet. No, you know what? I… I really… I don’t have time for this. Just be going, okay? You’re in Daiyu now. All signals in or out are blocked. People like their secrets out there.”

Daiyu 2

“No! Oh, stop. Spare any credits? Help a veteran get a warm meal.”

Daiyu Stormtrooper

“Out of the way. Move it. All right, come on. Break it up. Clear a path.”

Female Stormtrooper

“P, X, nine, eight, seven…”

Daiyu 3

“You want some spice, old man? I got Kessel pure, glitterstim, and Felucian. What do you need? Well, if she’s here, you’re never gonna see her again. Nobody leaves this place. I was someone’s daughter once, too. Here. That one’s free. Couple more of those and you’ll forget she ever existed.”


“You having trouble? There’s a Jedi. He helps people. I’ll take you to him. For the right price.”

Haja Estree

“It’s okay, you’re safe now. I won’t let anything happen to you. Spaceport passenger check. Gate 3-C, do you read? Over. This is a Jedi mind trick. Do not be alarmed. I’m inside your mind. I’m sending a mother and son to your gate. You will let them through when they arrive. They are to be given safe passage to Corellia. I’m now leaving your mind. Yeah, I know. Use Gate 3-C. Oh. The Jedi must protect their own. With your son’s abilities, they will come for him. Get him safe. Oh. Oh, you didn’t have to. You must. My safety depends upon it. Now, go. Go. Be safe, little one. Be safe. They’re on their way. I’m gonna take a quick break, okay? Call you in a little bit.”

“How’d you get in here? I am Haja Estree, Jedi. I help all who are in need. In return, I ask only a few credits. The shadows are my realm, for the light is an unforgiving place for my kind. Five hundred to locate the girl, another three hundred to take you to her. I mean, that’s a really good deal. Oh, make it a thousand, I’ll even show you some tricks. What do you know of the Force, my friend? Okay, I know how this looks. I got them safe. Just a little poorer. You’re not gonna tell anyone, are you? What are you, a bounty hunter? So judgmental. Yeah, I’ll do it. Yeah. Definitely.”

“All right, if it’s the sewers you want, there’s only one place to go. But you’ll never get in.”

Male Contact

“This is Gate 3. Copy. Who is this? This is a private channel. You’re inside my mind. I’ll let them through when they arrive. They’ll be given safe passage to Corellia. Roger that.”

Haja Customer

“The Force is so strong with you. The force is so strong with you. Thank you for helping us, Haja. It’s all there. Every credit. We will never forget you.”

Tattooine Civilian

“This is the Outer Rim. You have no rights here. We’re not under the Empire’s…”

Menial Worker

“It’s only half. Please, I have a family.”

Factory Overseer

“One more word, I take it all. Keep moving. Something you want to say?”

Jedi Order

“Come on! Let’s go! Come on! Let’s go! Come on! Move! Quick! Go. Come on! Go. Go! Go! Run! This way! Hurry!”

Male Youngling

“Let’s go! Hurry! We run.”

Female Youngling

“This way! Quick! This way! This way. Watch out! No! What do we do now?”

Emperor Palpatine

“Execute order 66. Execute Order 66. Execute Order 66.”
