Season 1


Chapter 1: Stranger in a Strange Land [1.1]


Boba Fett: Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.

[Master Garfalaquox has brought a gift for Boba Fett and is saying something in his language. Boba and Fennec are nodding as if they know what he's saying]
Boba Fett: Did you catch any of that?
Fennec Shand: Something about friendship?
Boba Fett: We really need a protocol droid.

[8D8 presents visitors for Boba Fett but the next ones are two shackled Gamorreans]
8D8: These two Gamorreans were once bodyguards to Jabba the Hutt, and later, Bib Fortuna. They did not surrender even after their patron was killed. They were captured alive as a tribute to you, Lord Fett. Their tortured squeals will send a piercing message to all potential challengers to your throne. [Gamorreans grunting]
Boba Fett: I do not torture.
8D8: Well, respectfully, Lord Fett, on Tatooine you must project strength if you are to be accepted as a Daimyo.
Fett: You were loyal to both your bosses. [Gamorreans grunt] Would you be loyal to me if I were to spare you? [Gamorreans squeal and grunt in excitement; to Fennec] This is a bad idea.

[flashback: Fett and a Rodian have been recaptured by the Tusken Raiders]
Boba Fett: We could have both escaped if you didn't sound the alarm. If you kept your snout closed, if we can get to Anchorhead, I can get us off world. I could also strangle you with this ankle chain and feed your leg to the watchdog. [Rodian mutters at him] Oh, that you understand, huh?

Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine [1.2]


Boba Fett: I am Boba Fett. I'm here to see the Mayor.
Mok Shaiz' clerk: "Boba Fett." Um... Do you have an appointment?

Mok Shaiz: Running a family is more complicated than bounty hunting.

Boba Fett: [to Garsa Fwip] Mayor Mok Shaiz sent me here as though there's something I should know. ...And now you're sweating like a gumpta on Mustafar.

[flashback: Fett and the Tusken Raiders have just stolen a bunch of speeder bikes from a Nikto gang to prepare for ambushing a spice train]
Boba Fett: [shooing away Tuskens trying to dismantle the bikes] Whoa! These are mine! These are mine, stop! These are mine. I will teach you how to ride. I will teach you. This is how we will stop the train.

[Boba Fett and Fennec Shand force their way to meet Mos Espa Mayor Mok Shaiz]
Mok Shaiz: [Via interpreter] Who is this who enters unannounced?
Boba Fett: You know damn well who.
Majordomo: It is the new Daimyo, Boba Fett, Your Excellence.
Fett: If you do not who know I am, then why did you send this man [points to captured assassin] to assassinate me?
Majordomo: I can assure you, the Mayor had nothing...
Mok Shaiz: He's a member of the Order of the Night Wind.
Fett: Ah! Then you admit it.
Shaiz: The Order of the Night Wind are not allowed to operate outside of Hutt Space. Thank you for turning him in. Give this man his reward.
Fett: I am not a bounty hunter.
Shaiz: Is that so? I've heard otherwise. I know that you sit on the throne of your former employer.
Fett: Bib Fortuna was not my employer.
Shaiz: It was Jabba the Hutt's throne.
Fett: Yes. And now it is mine. And I will take this payment as what you should have brought me as tribute. You should remember, you serve as long as the Daimyo of Tatooine deem it so.
Shaiz: [rattled] Before you threaten me, you should ask yourself, who really sent the Night Wind? I have no motive. As you said, I serve at your pleasure.
Fett: I am not a fool, Mok Shaiz. And those who thought otherwise no longer draw breath.
Shaiz: Here is the tribute I offer, some advice. Running a family is more complicated than bounty hunting.
Fett: Is that it?
Shaiz: Go to Garsa's Sanctuary. You'll see what I speak of.

[flashback: Fett and the Tusken Raiders have successfully taken down the Pykes' spice train]
Boba Fett: Who's the leader? [Pykes point at leader]
Pyke Syndicate Leader: Are you going to kill us?
Fett: That depends on how you answer what I'm about to ask. [Tusken Raider talks] Are you carrying spice?
Pyke Syndicate Leader: What do you mean by "spice"?
Fett: Sansanna spice from the slave mines of Kessel.
Pyke Syndicate Leader: What does spice look like?
Fett: Like that. This is not looking good for you.
Pyke Syndicate Leader: We thought you were uncivilized raiders. We were trying to protect our route.
Fett: These sands are no longer free for you to pass. These people lay ancestral claim to the Dune Sea, and if you are to pass, a toll is to be paid to them. Any death dealt from the passing freighters will be returned ten-fold. Now, go back to your syndicate and present these terms. Your lives are a gesture of our civility. Now walk. Single file, in the direction of the high sun. It will lead you to Anchorhead by sunset if you leave now.
Pyke Syndicate Leader: But we'll be killed.
Fett: You now travel under the protection of the Tuskens. No harm will come of you.
Pyke Syndicate Leader: We will die of thirst without our water car.
Fett: We will give you each a black melon. You will survive on its milk as these people do. Now go.

Tusken Raider Chieftain: I have a gift for you.
Boba Fett: A gift? Why?
Tusken Raider Chieftain: You are a good guide. Now this gift will guide you.
Boba Fett: A lizard? Thank you. I will let it guide me.
[the lizard jumps on him and goes up his nose]
Boba Fett: I'm sorry, I think I swallowed it. It's a tricky little bugger.
Tusken Raider Chieftain: It will guide you from inside your head.

Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa [1.3]


[8D8 briefs Boba Fett about the crime situation in Mos Espa]
8D8: After the Sail Barge disaster, there was a power vacuum. Bib Fortuna assumed Jabba's mantle. Under Master Bib's watchful eye, Mos Espa was divided amongst three families. [outlines holomap] The Trandoshans took the city center. The Aqualish, the Worker's District here. And the Klatooinians, the starport and upper sprawl. Master Bib did not have the power of Jabba, so he relied on uneasy alliances to preserve his tribute and title.
Boba Fett: All of this while lining the pockets of Mayor Mok Shaiz. Where does that leave us now?
Fennec Shand: Everyone is waiting to see what kind of leader you are.

Boba Fett: Release him. [to Krrsantan] No hard feelings, it's just business. Take it from an ex-bounty hunter: don't work for scugholes. It's not worth it.

Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm [1.4]


[Boba Fett has dinner with the crime lords of Tattooine, but they doubt his sincerity]
Boba Fett: Why speak of conflict when cooperation can make us all rich?
Aqualish gang leader's translator: Master Garfalaquox asks what it is that you are proposing.
Fett: I am proposing that all the families of Mos Espa join in a defensive alliance until the Pyke Syndicate is vanquished.
Klatooinian gang leader: They have only challenged your territory. Why should we spill the blood of our ranks for a feud waged between you and the Pykes?
Fett: Yes. Then I will fight these battles alone. I will vanquish these interlopers who threaten our planet. I will make the streets safe again. So all in this room can prosper. All I ask in return is that you remain neutral if the Pyke Syndicate approaches you to betray me.

Boba Fett: [to Fennec] I want you to help me. Help me recover my Firespray gunship.

Fennec Shand: You're a hunter:
Boba Fett: I'm tired of working for idiots who are gonna get me killed. The Tuskens took me in, made me part of their tribe. I was ready to leave hunting behind.
Fennec Shand: People like us don't get to decide when we're finished.

[Fennec presses a button to release a seismic charge]
Fennec Shand: Fire in the hole.
[the Sarlacc swallows the charge, causing it to then explode]
Boba Fett: Next time, don't touch my buttons.

Fennec Shand: Living with the Tuskens has made you soft.
Boba Fett: No, it's made me strong. You can only get far without a tribe.

Chapter 5: Return of the Mandalorian [1.5]


Peli Motto: Where is your unlikely companion?
Din Djarin: I returned him to his own kind.
Peli Motto: Why the hell would you do that?! I could've made good money off that thing, open a petting zoo!

[The Jawas bring Din the part he asked for]
Din Djarin: That was fast.
Peli Motto: These critters could find a skud in a krill pond. [about the part the Jawas gave Din] Will that do?
Din Djarin: Where did they get a cryogenic density combustion booster?
Peli Motto: Do you really want to know?
Din Djarin: Sure.
[Peli translates Din's question to the Jawas in Jawaese]
Peli Motto: I got it. They said they crawled under a Pyke spice runner and crimped it off while they were refueling.
Din Djarin: Gusty little fellas.

Peli Motto: You hit this button, you're gonna evacuate your exhaust manifold, if you know what I mean.

[Din pays Peli for his new ship]
Peli Motto: Mind if I count it? Not that I don't trust you, I just wanna make sure you don't give me too much.

Din Djarin: [starts up his new ship] Shouldn't we run a diagnostic first?
Peli Motto: Nah, I can hear her! She's purring! Send her up!

[Din lands his new ship]
Peli Motto: Whoo! Well? How was it?
Din Djarin: Wizard.

Din Djarin: [to the Klatooinian boss] I can bring you in warm, or I can bring you in cold.

[Mando has just defeated a Klatooinian abattoir boss and his goons at their office, but faces more workers outside]
Din Djarin: Your boss is dead. I'm here to collect on his bounty. I have no trouble with any of you. There's a pile of New Republic credits in there that I have no right to. If you do me the honor of letting me pass, you all can help yourselves to whatever you think you deserve from your former employer. [one worker carefully sidesteps from him and heads to the office; the others follow and help themselves to the money as Mando leaves]

The Armorer: What shall I forge?
Din Djarin: Something for a foundling.
The Armorer: This is the way.
Din Djarin: For a specific foundling...Grogu.
The Armorer: He is no longer in your care. He is with his own kind now.
Din Djarin: I want to see him, make sure he's safe.
The Armorer: In order to master the ways of the Force, Jedi must forgo all attachment.
Din Djarin: That is the opposite of our Creed. Loyalty and solidarity are The Way.

[Mando and Paz Viszla face over rights to the Darksaber, and Mando is ready to go for the kill, but...]
The Armorer: It is done. Paz Vizsla, have you ever removed your helmet?
Paz Viszla: No.
The Armorer: Has it ever been removed by others?
Viszla: Never.
The Armorer: This is The Way.
Viszla: This is The Way.
The Armorer: Din Djarin, have you ever removed your helmet? [notices Mando's silence] Have you ever removed your helmet? By Creed, you must vow.
Din Djarin: I have.
The Armorer: Then, you are a Mandalorian no more.
Djarin: I beg you for your forgiveness. How can I atone?
Viszla: Leave, apostate.
The Armorer: According to Creed, one may only be redeemed in the living waters beneath the mines of Mandalore.
Din Djarin: But the mines have all been destroyed.
The Armorer: This is The Way.

[Fennec asks Din to join her and Boba, with money to offer him if he says yes]
Din Djarin: Tell him it's on the house. But first, I gotta pay a visit to a little friend.

Chapter 6: From the Desert Comes a Stranger [1.6]


Cobb Vanth: [to Pykes] Anyone gets lost running spice through Mos Pelgo again will be lost forever.

Fennec Shand: The Pyke Syndicate has been gathering soldiers the last few weeks. Mayor Mok Shaiz is on their payroll and has flown off world, which leads us to believe the storm is about to break.
Majordomo: It was a scheduled vacation, actually.

Ahsoka Tano: [to Luke] So much like your father.

Luke Skywalker: [to Grogu] You're trying to hard. Don't try, do.

Luke Skywalker: I want to tell you about someone you remind me of a great deal. His name was Yoda. He was small like you, but his heart was huge, and the Force was strong in him. He once said to me, "Size matters not." That's how he talked. He would speak in riddles.

Ahsoka Tano: [about Grogu] You've taught him well.
Luke Skywalker: It's more like he's remembering than I'm actually teaching him anything.
Ahsoka Tano: Sometimes the student guides the master.

Din Djarin: You. I didn't expect to see you here.
Ahsoka Tano: [about the Skywalkers] I'm an old friend of the family.

Din Djarin: I don't understand why you're alright with Skywalker's decision to train the kid when you wouldn't.
Ahsoka Tano: Because it was my choice. I don't control the wants of others.

[a mysterious red-eyed humanoid alien - Cad Bane - enters Freetown and Cobb Vanth receives him after sending all the residents indoors]
Cad Bane: Cobb Vanth.
Cobb Vanth: And who might you be?
Bane: Whatever Fett is paying you, we'll match, and all you've got to do is stay put and let things play out.
Deputy: Hey, the Marshal ain't for sale. [Bane raises head to look at them]
Vanth: I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name.
Bane: I'd be careful where I was sticking my nose if I were you.
Vanth: Is that friendly advice or a threat?
Bane: Boba Fett is a cold-blooded killer who worked with the Empire.
Vanth: You tell your spice runners Tatooine is closed for business. This planet's seen enough violence.
Bane: You should've never given up your armor. [long pause. Vanth draws but Bane shoots him first in the shoulder then kills the Deputy with three shots] Tatooine belongs to the Syndicate. As long as the spice keeps running, everyone will be left alone. [holsters weapon and walks away]

Luke Skywalker: [to Grogu] The Mandalorian wanted you to have this. [shows beskar chainmail suit] But before you take it, I will give you a choice. [opens box and pulls out a lightsaber] This... is a lightsaber. It belonged to my teacher, Master Yoda. And now, I'm offering it to you. But you may choose only one. If you choose the armor, you'll return to your friend, the Mandalorian. However, you will be giving in to attachment to those that you love and forsaking the way of the Jedi. But if you choose the lightsaber, you will be the first student in my academy, and I will train you to be a great Jedi. It will take you many years to master the ways of the Force, and you may never see the Mandalorian again because, Grogu, a short time for you is a lifetime for someone else. [Grogu coos] Which do you choose?

Chapter 7: In the Name of Honor [1.7]

[Mok Shaiz's majordomo emerges from the Garsa's Sanctuary ruins offering to negotiate with the Pykes laying siege, with a tablet at hand]
Majordomo: Salutations! Salutations! I am unarmed but for this tablet bearing the terms of surrender. I wish to present to whomever spokesperson is empowered to deliberate an acceptable outcome in the eyes of the Oba Diah high council.
Pyke Syndicate leader: Read it to me, tail-head.
Majordomo: Oh, because of the enchanting sobriquet, and one of which I never tire. Yes. Someday I hope to see the fabled Obsidian Cliffs of Oba Diah with my own eyes.
Pyke Syndicate leader: Read it.
Majordomo: Agreed. Let us dispense with the pleasantries. [Clears throat as he reads tablet] "I, Boba Fett, speaking as Daimyo of the Tatooine territories formerly held by Jabba the Hutt, do present the following offer". [looks at the text] Perhaps we should discuss what you'd be willing to...
Pyke Syndicate leader: Read it.
Majordomo: "... following offer. Nothing". Uh... "You will leave this planet and your spice trade. If you refuse these terms... [clears throat] the arid sands of Tatooine will once again flourish with flowered fields fertilized with the bodies of your dead". His words.

[Peli Motto and the droids have extracted Mando and are leading the Pykes' Scorpeneks on a wild goose chase]
Peli Motto: Hey, Mando! Look who's here.
Mando: What? [sees Grogu emerge from a sheet, who leaps up at the Mandalorian as they embrace once again] Hey, what are you doing here? Oh! Okay, little guy. I'm happy to see you too. I didn't know when I'd see you again. It's okay. Yeah. I missed you too, buddy. But, uh... we're in a bit of a bind here right now. You be careful. You keep your head down. You stay hidden until the fight's over. [notices Grogu wearing the beskar chainmail suit the Armorer made for him] Hey, that's the shirt. You got the shirt.
Motto: Save your tender moment. We've got a Scorpenek droid chasing us.
Mando: What is he doing here?
Motto: The Force works in mysterious ways.
