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.
Captain Rex (to Cody): Looks like we got ourselves a batch of shinies, Commander.
Echo: Shinies, sir?
Captain Rex: That's right. Your armor, it's shiny and new, just like you.
Hevy: Sir, me and my batchers are trained and ready. We'll take back our post, shiny or not. Captain Rex: There's hope for you yet, rookie.
