Hera Syndulla: Hondo, I see you got my message.
Hondo Ohnaka: At your service. And mine too, of course.
Ketsu Onyo: He wasn't hard to find. Talks a lot for a smuggler.
Hondo Ohnaka: Bup-bup-bup. Pirate! That is pirate, my dear. So much more romantic than a smug... Mug... Word that... Ugh, never mind.
(Hondo opens a chest and there is only Melch hiding inside it, no loot)
Hera Syndulla: Sorry it didn't work out, Hondo.
Hondo Ohnaka: Work out? No. This is better, yes, because... (hugs Melch) Friendship is the greatest treasure.
Ezra Bridger: Do you really mean that?
Hondo Ohnaka: Mostly. See? (Melch punches him and laughs) He's always laughing. Always having a good time, this Melch.
Zeb Orrelios: You lied to us. What a surprise.
Ezra Bridger: Well, he didn't exactly lie. He just didn't tell us the whole truth.
Hondo Ohnaka: Well said! And some of the truth is better than none of the truth, which is what you used to get. So, don't try and tell me that I have not grown.
Zeb Orrelios: I don't have any time for this. Cargo hold, now! I can pull your limbs off later.
Hondo Ohnaka: He's always kidding. He's kidding, right?
Sabine Wren: So what do you need us for? Why not use your own crew?
Hondo Ohnaka: Now trust me, that is a long, boring story. No, no, no, my friends, you are the guys for this job.
Kanan Jarrus: If the Empire couldn't salvage the ship, what hope do we have?
Hondo Ohnaka: Because we have something in our favor that the Empire does not, for we are desperate!
Hera Syndulla: For once, he's right.
Hondo Ohnaka: So, so, so, how much do you insist on paying me for this intel?
Hera Syndulla: Being rescued from that Imperial prison wasn't payment enough? What do you want?
Hondo Ohnaka: What good is a pirate without a ship? You know, the Ghost is a very nice ship. I could probably...
Everyone: Forget it.
Hondo Ohnaka: I'm kidding, of course. But I do need a ship. Nothing too fancy. Just something with a roomy cargo hold, hyperdrive, shields, weapons. I am a wanted man, after all. Very popular.
Hondo Ohnaka: The villain was upon us, I'm telling you! But young Ezra, he stood tall in front of me and withstood a massive atta... (Ezra walks in) My friend! I was just talking about you. How you and I rescued the generators from the evil Vizago.
Ezra Bridger: Yeah, that's not true. You stole the generators and my ship.
Hondo Ohnaka: What an accusation! You wound me!
Ezra Bridger: Chopper had the Phantom on autopilot.
Hondo Ohnaka: Well, that's another version of the story, I suppose. I'll tell you what. You can keep my generators. They are my gift to you. Goodbye!
Hondo Ohnaka: You must have many responsibilities, yes?
Ezra Bridger: Yeah, too many at the moment.
Hondo Ohnaka: Well, then join my crew, and I will split it right down the middle, fifty-forty. You won't get a better deal than that, especially from me.
Ezra Bridger: Wait, that's only 90%. What about the other 10?
Hondo Ohnaka: Oh, you want me to spend that on expenses, trust me.
Hondo Ohnaka: My friend, my friend. You might not be Calrissian, but I know one thing you are... You are a Jedi. Why didn't you tell me you were a Jedi? You know, I am an old Jedi sympathizer. I know. I wouldn't believe me either, but one of my best friends was a Jedi. I'm pretty sure we were friends.
Ezra Bridger: Well, I'm not really a Jedi yet.
Hondo Ohnaka: Well, then be a pirate Jedi! We will make an excellent team.
Hondo Ohnaka: Ah, Vizago is indisposed, uh, so to speak, granting me the privilege of conducting business with you, O' legendary one. Hondo Ohnaka at your service.
Azmorigan: Is this a joke? I don't deal with washed-up old relics.
Hondo Ohnaka: Come now, let's leave your wife out of this. There is no need for such impropriety among thieves.
Hondo Ohnaka: Let me see. Oh, the cost of the fuel. I had to use a lot of fuel. The general wear and tear on my men and equipment. A couple of them died, I think. Believe me, Kenobi. Staging a rescue is not an inexpensive proposition.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: So you mean to tell me you were staging a rescue, not attempting to hijack a Jedi starship?
Hondo Ohnaka: You're welcome! Oh, the thanklessness! What an accusation. I am gone! I will send you my bill!
