Kyle Katarn: Mon Mothma must be getting paranoid. She never used to send pros like us out on blue milk runs like this.
(the hologram receiver turns on, revealing none other than Mon Mothma)
Mon Mothma: Kyle, Jan. Greetings.
Jan Ors: Mon Mothma. Kyle was just talking about you.

Imperial Officer: You ever fired a blaster at a living target?
Stormtrooper: (laughs) All the time, I was the top womp rat hunter in my unit!
Imperial Officer: No, I mean a sentient being, something that could shoot back.
Stormtrooper: No, I guess I never have.
Imperial Officer: You must be joking! How long has it been since you graduated?
Stormtrooper: Over a year.
Imperial Officer: What have you been doing all this time, looking the other way?!
Stormtrooper: Never had a frontline assignment.
Imperial Officer: The whole galaxy's the frontline now. We aren't waging a full scale war here, we're hitting the Republic anywhere we can. So be prepared.
Stormtrooper: Yes sir!
Imperial Officer: (under his breath) ...Damn rookies, no wonder we're losing our entire Empire.

Desann: Kyle? Kyle Katarn? You're the legendary hero who killed Jerec at the Valley of the Jedi? You look like nothing more than a bantha herder.
Kyle Katarn: Well, you look like an overgrown Kowakian monkey-lizard, so I guess looks don't count for much.

Luke Skywalker: (meditating with his back to Kyle) Kyle. I've been expecting you.
Kyle Katarn: (nonchalant) Skywalker.
Luke Skywalker: You've come for your lightsaber?
Kyle Katarn: Yeah.
Luke Skywalker: After all these years?
Kyle Katarn: (reluctant) My... Jan's been killed... By a Jedi. Goes by the name of—
Luke Skywalker: Desann.
Kyle Katarn: (surprised) ...You know?
Luke Skywalker: (rises from his seat) I sensed a disturbance in the Force. I'll tell you about Desann while your trial is being prepared.
Kyle Katarn: "Trial"?
Luke Skywalker: (turns around to face Kyle) A minor test to determine your fitness to wield a lightsaber again. Even in your relatively unpracticed state, you shouldn't find it too difficult.
Kyle Katarn: Why can't you Jedi ever do things the simple way?
Luke Skywalker: If the ways of the Jedi were easy, there'd be millions of us, instead of dozens.

Kyle Katarn: Bartender? (the Bartender ignores him as he inspects a dirty glass) BARTENDER!? (the Bartender continues to ignore him)
(Kyle resolutely places his lightsaber on the bar desk; the Bartender promptly throws away the dirty glass)
Bartender: Ah, Jedis! I had no ideas! What can I do for you, honored Jedis?
Kyle Katarn: I'm no Jedi, I'm just a guy with a lightsaber and a few questions.
Bartender: Of course, many peoples have them.
Kyle Katarn: Lightsabers?
Bartender: Questions.

Bartender: Now, you seek informations?
Kyle Katarn: What do you know about Reelo Baruk?
Bartender: A respected waste disposal managers. This very establishment contracts with him to remove our garbages.
Kyle Katarn: Where does he take your "garbages"?
Bartender: Who cares? Out of sight, out of minds, says us.
Kyle Katarn: And it's strictly legit, right?
Bartender: As legitimate as anything on Nar Shaddaa, Mr. "Just-A-Guy".

Never trust a bartender with bad grammar.
Kyle Katarn

Stormtrooper #1: These blaster rifles are going to be the end of us.
Stormtrooper #2: Mine works fine!
Stormtrooper #1: Once you fight a blaster carbine you won't want to go back.
Stormtrooper #2: What's the difference?
Stormtrooper #1: It's all in the feel and the kickback. You can't stay on target with these things, you miss your first shot and you are lying on the ground with a hole blasted through your armor.
Stormtrooper #2: Well, we don't have to worry about that. This place is so far removed from the core planets there's no way we're going to run into any resistance.
Stormtrooper #1: Keep talking like that and you're going to be the first man down when something happens.

(over comlink) Oh, no-n-no sir, I-I'm sorry sir, I'll continue to look around. Alpha 956 out. (to himself) Stupid know-it-all officer! How about you get into this armor and try to see out of this damn helmet, then I'll sit around in my comfy office and tell you how dumb and incompetent you are!

Desann: I was wrong about you, Katarn. Your failure as a Jedi hasn't weakened you; it's made you stronger. Come, join me. You know in your heart that you'll never truly be one of them.
Kyle Katarn: Maybe, maybe not, but I know I won't be alone. How 'bout you, Desann? Even now, after all this pain, there's still hope. Come, join us.

(Kyle and Jan walks up to Luke while he meditates with his back to them)
Luke Skywalker: (without turning around) Kyle, Jan.
Kyle Katarn: Someday you're going to have to teach me how to do that.

Luke Skywalker: I'd be happy to keep your lightsaber here for safekeeping.
Kyle Katarn: No. I think I'll keep it.
Jan Ors: Ha! I knew it! Lando owes me five credits!
