* EvenEvilHasStandards: The Imperial Supercommando Captain is rightfully wary of the weapon, asking if the Empire won't just turn it against all Mandalorians.

* InnocentlyInsensitive: Upon Sabine saying that the Duchess works by targeting the alloy in Mandalorian armor, Ezra asks why the Mandalorians don't just use another material, earning him a DeathGlare from every Mandalorian around him. Sabine has to explain that all Mandalorian armor is passed down through their clans and reforged as necessary, her own being 500 years old. It's not that they can't make new armor, it's that the armor they have is part of their culture.
