Fives: General Krell, in case you haven't noticed, Captain Rex just saved this platoon. Surely you won't fail to recognize that.
General Krell: ARC-5555, stand down. (activates his lightsaber)
Fives: Sir. Yes, sir.
Captain Rex: Sir, if I may address your accusation, I followed your orders. Even in the face of a plan, that was, in my opinion, severely flawed. A plan that cost us men. (takes off his helmet) Not clones! Men! As sure as it is my duty to remain loyal to your command, I also have another duty. To protect those men.
General Krell: You have a spark of tenacity, Captain. I'll give you that. I know that I don't command like the Jedi you're used to serving, certainly not like General Skywalker, but I have my way. It may be difficult, but these are difficult times. And it's proven effective. And I suppose your loyalty to your men is to be commended. They seem to admire this. That's important to an effective commander. All right, Captain Rex, your opinion has been noted. Dismissed.
Fives: I think he almost complimented you.
Captain Rex (sighs): It's hard to tell.
Commander Cody: Echo, Fives. You both really stepped up in the heat of battle.
Echo: We did what we had to do, sir.
Fives: What any clone would've done.
Captain Rex: Both of you showed valor out there, real courage. Reminded me of me, actually.
Commander Cody: Echo, Fives, you're both officially being made ARC Troopers.
Captain Rex: I don't think the Separatists will be coming back here anytime soon. But if they do, Kamino will be lucky to have clones like you defending it. Good job, men.
Anakin Skywalker: Stay with General Kenobi. I'm on my way.
Captain Rex: Better hurry, sir. You're missing all the fun.
Suu Lawquane: Captain Rex, are you going to turn in my husband?
Captain Rex: I'm sorry, Suu, it's my duty. But in my condition, I probably won't remember any of this.
Suu Lawquane: Thank you.
Captain Rex: You're still a deserter, Cut, but you're certainly not a coward.
Cut Lawquane: Come on, Rex, admit it. You've thought about what your life could look like if you were to also leave the army, choose the life you want.
Captain Rex: What if I am choosing the life I want? What if I'm staying in the army because it's meaningful to me?
Cut Lawquane: And how is it meaningful?
Captain Rex: Because I'm part of the most pivotal moment in the history of the Republic. If we fail, then our children and their children could be forced to live under an evil I can't well imagine.
Cut Lawquane: If you were to have children, of course. But that would be against the rules, wouldn't it? Isn't that what somebody programmed you to believe, Captain?
Captain Rex: No, Cut, it's simply what I believe. It doesn't matter if it's my children or other people's children. Does that meet with your approval?
Cut Lawquane: Perfectly. To each his own. That's what I always say.
Shaeeah Lawquane: What does that mean, Daddy?
Cut Lawquane: It means you can do anything with your life that you want to.
Cut Lawquane: You and I may be clones, but we're still individuals. You have a name rather than a number, Captain. Why is that?
Captain Rex: Perhaps our leaders feel it's a more efficient way of distinguishing us.
Cut Lawquane: More efficient than a number? I doubt the Kaminoans think that way.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Senator Amidala suggested we offer you training to help hone your skills with a blaster.
Jar Jar Binks: Really?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Really.
Jar Jar Binks: Oh, boy. I'm-a gonna be trained.
Captain Rex: I am not training him.
Padmé Amidala (about a dead clone): What a waste.
Captain Rex: With all due respect, Senator, it's what these men were born to do.
Padmé Amidala: I hope that their sacrifice brings us closer to peace.
Captain Rex: You know, I can't figure those villagers not wanting to fight. No pride I guess.
Ahsoka Tano: I call it no courage.
Aayla Secura: Sometimes it takes courage to stick to one's beliefs, young padawan, as any Jedi well knows.
Ahsoka Tano (to Anakin): Be strong, master, just a little bit longer. Rex will watch over you.
Captain Rex: Don't worry, kid. I'll take good care of him.
Captain Rex: We're bringing the droid?
Ahsoka Tano: We'll need Goldie to open secured hatches and access the station's computer for us. Oh, and, Rex, you get to carry him.
Captain Rex: That's just great.
Commander Cody: If it weren't for you, the Republic wouldn't have learned of the Separatists' invasion until it was too late.
Captain Rex: You showed me something today. You're exactly the kind of men I need in the 501st.
