Fives: If the Umbarans get to him, he'll turn over all our intel. The defense codes, everything. He'll strike a crippling blow to the Republic.
Jesse: Something has to be done. We can't risk the possibility that he might escape.
Tup: As long as Krell's alive, he's a threat to every one of us.
Captain Rex: I agree.
Captain Rex: Why, General? Why kill your own men?
General Krell (chuckls): Because I can. Because you fell for it. Because you're inferior.
Captain Rex: But you're a Jedi! How could you?
General Krell: A Jedi? (laughs) I'm no longer naive enough to be a Jedi. A new power is rising, I've foreseen it. The Jedi are going to lose this war, and the Republic will be ripped apart from the inside. In its place is going to rise a new order, and I will rule as part of it.
Captain Rex: You're a Separatist!
General Krell: I serve no one's side, only my own. And soon, my new master.
Captain Rex: You're an agent of Dooku.
General Krell: Not yet, but when I get out of here, I will be. After I've succeeded in driving the Republic from Umbara, the Count will reward my actions and make me his new apprentice.
Captain Rex: Tell me who gave you the orders to attack us.
Waxer: It... It was General Krell. He sent us to these coordinates to stop the enemy. We thought they were wearing our armor, but it was... You.
Captain Rex (to the Clones): We all know who's responsible for what happened out there. What we don't know, is why. Something has to be done. What I'm proposing is highly treasonous. If any man chooses to opt out, do it now. (The Clones take one step forward) From this point forward, we are entering uncharted territory. My orders are, we arrest General Krell for treason against the Republic.
Jesse: Never thought we'd go out this way.
Fives: Wait! This is wrong and we all know it! The general is making a mistake, and he needs to be called on it. No clone should have to go out this way! We're loyal soldiers! We follow orders, but we are not a bunch of unthinking droids! We are men! We must be trusted to make the right decisions! Especially when the orders we are given are wrong!
(The Clones intentionally miss)
Dogma: What... What happened?
(The Clones drop their blasters)
Captain Rex: They're doing the right thing, Dogma. Because if this is how soldiers are rewarded for heroic actions, then one day, every man in this battalion may face a similar fate. Take off their binders.
Dogma: No! We have orders! We have to go through with this!
Captain Rex: Good luck finding anyone to do it.
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.
