Pretty. What do we blow up first?

Phanan: A laser scalpel. Hard to distinguish from a writing tool without close inspection and up close, I'm pretty effective with it.
Repness: I'd say so. Did you surrender this weapon to our guards before coming before me?
Phanan: What weapon, sir?
Repness: The laser scalpel.
Phanan: Not a weapon, sir. It's a tool of medicine. I wasn't asked to turn over my bandages, bacta treatments, disinfectant sprays, or tranquilizers either, but I can kill a man with any of them, under the right circumstances.

I survived the Battle of Yavin. I survived the Battle of Hoth. Hell... Just a couple of weeks ago I blew up the Death Star during the Battle of Endor. The reason I'm still breathing when a lot of other good Rebel pilots aren't? Maybe it's because I'm better. Or maybe I'm just lucky.

There's no mechanical replacement for a future, Face. And every time I take a hit, and they have to cut away another part of me and replace it with machinery because I'm allergic to bacta, every time that happens I seem to be a little further away from that young doctor who had a future. He can't come back, Face. Not all of him is here anymore.

All the furniture that made up the way I'd thought and felt about things all my life started coming loose in my head. Nowadays it slides around and breaks into pieces and I have no idea what parts of it are real and what aren't. It hurts, and a lot of the time I don't know who I am anymore.
Isard: It is interesting we have not met before, you and I, having been foes for so long. I expected you to be taller.
Wedge: I expected you to be dead.

"It's called the gray fallacy. One person says white, another says black, and outside observers assume gray is the truth. The assumption of gray is sloppy, lazy thinking. The fact that one person is diametrically opposed to the truth does not then skew reality so the truth is no longer the truth."

Iella: "Poor boy. He's a perator now. He can't lavish praise upon you and beg you to teach him all you know."
Wedge: "As if he would."
Iella: "He would. Our profile on him says he's one of your biggest admirers. But now he's locked behind the ruler's mask and can never admit it."

Falynn: Did you ever have to... you know... I mean, you don't have to answer if that's too personal.
Donos: Did I ever shoot someone in cold blood? Without giving him a chance? [she nods] Yes. Three times I did that. I didn't much care for it; if I did, I'd probably still be doing it. But better to have dead enemies than dead innocents.

Wes: Red Two, this is Red Three. Am I crazy, or is the general doing what he tells us never to do?
Tycho: Three, Two. Yes, you are, and yes, he is. Pay no attention.
