20 Great Quotes from The Book of Boba Fett

Check out some of the most memorable lines from Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, and more.

Boba Fett is a man of few words. When he speaks, you better listen. In The Book of Boba Fett, now streaming on Disney+, the former bounty hunter recruits a formidable team to defend Tatooine and its people from the Pyke Syndicate. Boba picks resilient and clever allies, so you know they have a lot to say, too. Let’s revisit the series with 20 of the best quotes from Boba Fett, his friends, and his enemies.

“I’m the crime lord. He’s supposed to pay me.” -- Boba Fett

1. “I’m the crime lord. He’s supposed to pay me.” — Boba Fett

Boba Fett gets his first clue that being the daimyo won’t be easy when the mayor’s majordomo pays him a visit. The supercilious majordomo speaks in circles. Boba, expecting to be showered with wealth and respect, is only given barely disguised condescension instead. (“Chapter 1: Stranger in a Strange Land”)

“Shall I kill him?” -- Fennec Shand

2. “Shall I kill him?” — Fennec Shand

It pays to have master assassin Fennec Shand on your side, in more ways than one. Much less forgiving than Boba Fett, the pragmatic Fennec has no qualms about simply removing any obstacles in her way. Usually with a sniper rifle. (“Chapter 1: Stranger in a Strange Land”)

"Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.” -- Boba Fett

3. “Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.” — Boba Fett

Fennec Shand can be very persuasive. (“Chapter 3: The Streets of Mos Espa”)

“No hard feelings. It’s just business.” -- Boba Fett

7. “No hard feelings. It’s just business.” — Boba Fett

Boba Fett has been in the bounty hunting business for a long time. He knows not to take anything personally, not even when a large Wookiee busts into his bedroom in the middle of the night to rough him up.

“You can only get so far without a tribe.” -- Boba Fett

10. “You can only get so far without a tribe.” — Boba Fett

Boba has had enough of a solitary life spent tracking the next target. The Tuskens saved his life and showed him the value of having a tribe that always has your back. Boba may have lost that found family, but he’s creating another in their honor. (“Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm”)

“Hit it, Max.” -- Garsa Fwip

11. “Hit it, Max.” — Garsa Fwip

Garsa Fwip is unflappable. The elegant proprietor of Sanctuary has just about seen it all, and not even an enraged Wookiee can fluster her. When things don’t turn out how she expects, Garsa knows the show must go on. (Especially when Max Rebo is the band leader.) (“Chapter 4: The Gathering Storm”)

“Loyalty and solidarity are the way.” -- The Mandalorian

12. “Loyalty and solidarity are the way.” — The Mandalorian
