-->''It is the quest for honour that makes one honourable.''

Obi-Wan, Commander Cody and Captain Rex land on Saleucami to chase after General Grievous. While on patrol with Jesse, Hardcase and Kix, Rex gets shot in the chest by a commando droid. Fortunately he's not dead, but Jesse and the others leave him at a nearby farm to recover. The farmer, one Suu Lawquane, isn't initially happy about the clones' presence, but eventually relents and tells Jesse they can leave Rex in the barn.

''Why'' doesn't Suu want Rex there? Her husband, Cut, is a clone who deserted from the Republic army.

!!Tropes:

* ChildrenAreInnocent: Shaeeah runs into the barn chasing a ball, sees Rex, and informs him "You look like my daddy." The clones assume that she just can't tell one male human from another. It is later revealed she meant it literally.
* DangerousDeserter: Averted. Cut just wants to live a quiet life, and protect his family.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Suu's children Shaeeah and Jek are half-Twi'lek, half-human. Their father was Suu's first husband, who walked out on her.
* InterspeciesRomance: Suu is a Twi'lek, and both Cut and her first husband are human.
* TheMetricSystemIsHereToStay: A rare aversion, one of only two instances in ''The Clone Wars'' (the other being season 1's [[Recap/StarWarsTheCloneWarsS1E13JediCrash "Jedi Crash") where Imperial measurements are used.
-->'''Kix:''' You'd be dead if that shot had hit an inch to the left.
* MsFanservice: Suu is an attractive Twi'lek woman with pink skin who's not wearing that much on her upper body.
* RidingIntoTheSunset: The episode ends with Rex riding off to rejoin the army.
