Captain Rex: You can help us. You can stand with us.

Commander Wolffe: I am a soldier of the Empire. I have my orders. Hand the girl over, and I'll make sure you're given a fair trial.

Captain Rex: Think about what you're doing, Wolffe. I know you've been trained not to question orders, but open your eyes. You're hunting a child. I know that's not who you are. As your brother, I'm asking you to do the right thing.

(Wolffe lets them escape)

Gregor (about Ezra's plan): I don't know about this plan, Rex.

Captain Rex: In my experience, when it comes to Jedi, the worse the plan, the better the result.

Captain Rex (about puffer pigs): So, you're not gonna help?

Zeb Orrelios: Uh-uh. I'm not allowed near the filthy beasts. I scare them. Apparently, there's something wrong with my face.

Captain Rex: Aw, well, at least yours is unique.

Zeb Orrelios: What is that, clone humor?

Zeb Orrelios: Still glad you got mixed up in this rebellion, Rex?

Captain Rex: It beats slingin' for joopas.

Zeb Orrelios: Does it? They sure do taste good.

Captain Rex: They do, don't they?

(Kanan uses Force to hold up broken bridge...)

Kanan Jarrus: Get across!

Saw Gerrera: What about Kanan?

(Kanan lets go of the bridge and jumps across...)

Kanan Jarrus: Come on. We gotta get moving.

Saw Gerrera: I always forget they can do that.

Captain Rex: Yeah, but he's no Skywalker.

Kanan Jarrus: I heard that.

(On a planet where old Separatist tactical droid was left with an army of battle droids, the Rebels and the tactical droid join forces, when the Empire arrives, winning the battle...)

Captain Rex: We all just won the Clone War, and you ended it, Ezra. A galaxy of senators couldn't do that. An army of Jedi, clones and droids couldn't find the middle ground, but you did.

Ezra Bridger: Rex, all I did was point out that none of you were meant to win. You couldn't.

Captain Rex: And we needed to hear it.

Ezra Bridger: The hangar looks clear. Let's go.

Captain Rex: Wait. That's not how it normally goes.

Ezra Bridger: What's wrong?

Captain Rex: The droids usually keep coming, wave after wave.

Kanan Jarrus: That tactical droid has had a long time to think about this. And remember, he wants to win.

Ezra Bridger: I'm surprised it means so much to him.

Captain Rex: Yeah, it means a lot to his programing. It means a lot to mine as well.

Ezra Bridger: Your programing?

Captain Rex: We clones were bred for combat. With few exceptions, there was no other way of life for us.

Ezra Bridger (finds B1's head): Hey, was this a Separatist battle droid?

Captain Rex: Yeah. Little piece of one anyway. This place used to be crawling with 'em. We called 'em clankers.

Zeb Orrelios: Clankers. I like that. How many of these things do you think you blasted?

Captain Rex: I don't know. Thousands. Probably tens of thousands. Never kept count like some of the boys.

Ezra Bridger: They don't look very dangerous.

Captain Rex: Listen, those droids wiped out a lot of Republic troopers. Many of them were my friends.

Kanan Jarrus: Rex has been through a lot. Battles leave scars, some you can't see.

Captain Rex: You know, I could have ordered you to take me along.

Ahsoka Tano: You don't exactly outrank me anymore.

Captain Rex: In my book, experience outranks everything.

Ahsoka Tano: Hmm, then I definitely outrank you.

(Kanan and Rex wake up from being unconscious...)

Kanan Jarrus: What just happened?

Ezra Bridger: Oh. Uh... Did you see them? We were so outnumbered. There was a firefight. A big firefight, actually. You guys fought great.

Kanan Jarrus: Thanks. All I saw was you.

(Chopper shows them holorecording of what happened...)

Kanan Jarrus: You shot us! I can't believe you shot us!

Ezra Bridger: I mean, you, you were dressed like stormtroopers.

Kanan Jarrus: Yeah!

Captain Rex (laughs): You shot us.

Ezra Bridger: I set it to stun.

Captain Rex: Yeah, well, you should've used kill.

Kanan Jarrus: What!?

Captain Rex: Well, just in case it wasn't us. I mean...

Kanan Jarrus: This armor doesn't protect you from anything.

Captain Rex: Well, I told you.

(In an Imperial shuttle; Kanan, Rex and Chopper are disguised as Imperials...)

Captain Rex: If we don't get some help soon, we're gonna have a 3376 on our hands. I don't think you're gonna want to have a 3376 off your starboard side, now, would you, sir?

Flight Control: Shuttle S257, requesting your emergency access code.

Captain Rex: Copy that, sir. Priority protocol 7...

Kanan Jarrus (whispers to Chopper): This is the stuff I can't stand, protocol nonsense.

Flight Control: Stand by for code check.

Captain Rex: Cody and I practically invented these emergency protocols back in the Clone War. Trust me, the codes are good.

Kanan Jarrus: How are we getting in anyway? (Imperial shuttle lands next to them) How is it the Empire lets us keep stealing these things?

Captain Rex: Oh. I thought it was the same one we used before.

(Inside the shuttle there is cute image of Rex and Kanan on the wall painted by Sabine...)

Kanan Jarrus: I don't know why she does that.

Captain Rex: I believe it's called artistic expression.

Kanan Jarrus: Yeah? Well, my expression is wrong. I'm not happy about being on this mission.

Captain Rex (sarcastically): Really? That wasn't clear.

(Chopper laughs)

Captain Rex: Aim, then fire.

Ezra Bridger: Rex, I bet sometimes even you miss.

Kanan Jarrus: Speaking of, you're missing Jedi training. Which is now. Remember?

Ezra Bridger: You know, I can't be in two places at once.

Captain Rex: As a soldier, you're gonna have to learn to prioritize.

Kanan Jarrus: Well, he's not a soldier. He's a Jedi.

Ezra Bridger: Yeah. What if I don't want to be either?

(Chopper is so shocked he drops a helmet he was holding)

Kanan Jarrus: What's that supposed to mean?

(Sabine tells Chopper to lock his feet while Ezra is trying to lift him with Force...)

Captain Rex: Hey, kid, while you're looking through the Force, don't forget to look with your eyes too. The droid's got his feet locked down.

(Sabine and Chopper laugh)

Ezra Bridger: It's not fair.

Kanan Jarrus: Real battles usually aren't.

Captain Rex: The Jedi general I served combined the Force with his wits, and it made him a great warrior.
