We Have Spoken: 20 Favorite Quotes From The Mandalorian Season One

That’s my line.

When The Mandalorian debuted on Disney+ last year, notable lines from the series became instant Star Wars classics. “This is the Way” and “I have spoken” immediately joined the ranks of iconic dialogue like “I am your father,” which is itself unmistakably Star Wars.

As we get ready for the continuing adventures of the masked warrior when Season Two debuts October 30 on Disney+, here are 20 of our favorite standout quotes from the first season of The Mandalorian that we just can’t stop repeating.

mythrol from The Mandalorian CH 1

1. “I can bring you in warm, or I can bring you in cold.” — The Mandalorian

One of the first lines we hear the Mandalorian utter tells us a lot about him. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, but he gives his target a chance to make the experience slightly more pleasant. Slightly. (“The Mandalorian,” Season One, Chapter 1)

2. “I was hoping to be free for Life Day, maybe even get home to the family… but I guess that’s not going to happen this year.” — The Mythrol

This rare mention of Life Day is more than a little ominous, but we’ll take it. (“The Mandalorian,” Season One, Chapter 1)

3. “I like those odds.” — The Mandalorian

We learn in this tense exchange that the Mandalorian doesn’t back down, not even when he’s outnumbered. (“The Mandalorian,” Season One, Chapter 1)

Kuiil in The Mandalorian CH 1

4. “I will help you. I have spoken.” — Kuiil

The line that was immediately repeated by Star Wars fans everywhere, “I have spoken” shows Kuiil’s firm convictions and unflappable demeanor. He won’t listen to any protests once he’s made up his mind, not even from a Mandalorian. (“The Mandalorian,” Season One, Chapter 1)

5. “I will initiate self-destruct.” — IG-11

As much as the Mandalorian mistrusts droids, he knows he needs IG-11 backing him up when the odds are against them in a blaster fight. His entreaties to keep the assassin droid in one piece are a comical respite in the heat of the heart-pounding shootout. (“The Mandalorian,” Season One, Chapter 1)

6. “I’m a Mandalorian. Weapons are part of my religion.” — The Mandalorian

Not only is this line immediately memorable, it is a brilliant summation of the Mandalorians in very few words. (“The Child,” Season One, Chapter 2)

Jawas in The Mandalorian CH 2

7. “SOOGAA!” — Jawas

The Egg! The Egg! (“The Child,” Season One, Chapter 2)

The Armorer from The Mandalorian CH 3

8. “This is the Way.” — The Armorer

Another instant classic, “This is the Way” reflects the creed of this particular Mandalorian sect, which has sworn to uphold their beliefs and ensure their way of life survives. Revealed in bits and pieces throughout the series, the resolute intonation of this mantra shows us that these Mandalorians will honor it no matter what. (“The Sin,” Season One, Chapter 3)

9. “Stop touching things.” — The Mandalorian

It’s the scene that launched a thousand memes. Seeing the Child act like, well, a child is both hilarious and heartwarming. (“Sanctuary,” Season One, Chapter 4)

The Mandalorian and Cara Dune in The Mandalorian CH 4

10. “Bad news. You can’t live here anymore.” — The Mandalorian

The Mandalorian isn’t one to mince words. He’s going to break bad news without any handholding, as the inhabitants of the Sorgan village discover. But even if he’s not prone to coddling, the Mando’s heart is in the right place. (“Sanctuary,” Season One, Chapter 4)

11. “She’s no good to us dead.” — The Mandalorian

This line might sound familiar. Similar to a statement muttered by Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back, this quote is a nod to that notorious bounty hunter. (“The Gunslinger,” Season One, Chapter 5)

Fennec Shand from The Mandalorian CH 5

12. “Your name will be legendary.” — Fennec Shand

Fennec Shand isn’t just dangerous because she’s an unrivaled marksman and mercenary. She’s also exceedingly clever and gifted with a silver tongue. She makes a case to rookie bounty hunter Toro Calican that completely changes the game—in a way Shand never expected. (“The Gunslinger,” Season One, Chapter 5)

13. “That’s not saying much.” — The Mandalorian

The Mando might be a force to be reckoned with in combat, but this insult lobbed at a former Imperial sharpshooter is just pure savagery. (“The Prisoner,” Season One, Chapter 6)

Cara Dune and The Mandalorian from The Mandalorian

14. “I’m in.” — Cara Dune

Cara’s unending grudge against the Empire is revealed in this exchange with the Mandalorian. The former shock trooper is unflinching in the face of danger, but she’s not foolish enough to rush into a fight for no good reason. Fighting Imperials is always a good reason. (“The Reckoning,” Season One, Chapter 7)

IG-11 from The Mandalorian CH 7

15. “Would anyone care for some tea?” — IG-11

IG-11’s past as a soulless killer is juxtaposed with this sweet sentence. A whole new droid since Kuiil repaired and reprogrammed him, this IG unit is now one-of-a-kind. (“The Reckoning,” Season One, Chapter 7)

16. “I would like to see the baby.” — The Client

The Client says what we’re all thinking. (“The Reckoning,” Season One, Chapter 7)

17. “He just killed an officer for interrupting him. This might take a while.” — Comm Operator

Moff Gideon has a reputation that precedes him, and in this scene far from the action, we hear just one reason why. The two scout troopers might not be taking their own situation seriously but rest assured that the cold and calculating Gideon is always, always serious. (“Redemption,” Season One, Chapter 8)

18. “It’s a Creed.” — The Mandalorian

This revelation is one of a few tantalizing clues about the fate of Mandalore and its clans. (“Redemption,” Season One, Chapter 8)

The Armorer from The Mandalorian CH 8

19. “You are a clan of two.” — The Armorer

Not only does this pronouncement bind the Mandalorian to the Child by the Creed, it affirms that their fates have been tied together pretty much since the first moment they met. (“Redemption,” Season One, Chapter 8)

20. “Come on, baby! Do the magic hand thing.” — Greef Karga

Greef is a man of practicality, but we love the playful side that the small Child brings out in the guild boss. (“Redemption,” Season One, Chapter 8)
