The Best Quotes from Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 3

The Mandalorian season 3 finale aired, and that means it’s over — for now. We’re already missing our armored protagonist and his apprentice. So let’s relive the best moments from this beloved Star Wars show with this season’s best quotes.

“Do you still have the saber? Wave that thing around and they’ll do whatever you say.” – Bo-Katan Kryze

The Apostate

It’s no secret that the Darksaber™ compels Mandalorians to do … just about anything. When Darth Maul wielded it, most of Mandalore’s subjects followed the former Sith despite disagreeing with his methods. Though she respects her people’s traditions, Bo-Katan Kryze is clearly frustrated with this custom, especially when it continuously ostracized her from her allegedly loyal followers.

“It’s Mandalore. The homeworld of our people.” – Din Djarin

The Mines of Mandalore

Many of the show’s plot lines revolve around Din Djarin’s relationship to the foundling Grogu. At first, Mando just wanted to reunite Grogu with other Force-wielders or his parents. Then, Mando agreed to take Grogu under his tutelage and train him in the Way of the Mandalore™. This scene up in the stars not only confirms that Grogu has fully chosen the Mandalorians over the Jedi, but illustrates just how strong a bond these two characters have forged.

“I believe that pursuit of knowledge is the most noble thing someone can do.” – Dr. Pershing

The Convert

Poor Doctor Pershing. Things never seem to go this guy’s way. After being forced to use his brilliance for Moff Gideon’s experiments, the good doctor found a new home through the New Republic’s amnesty program. This quote is from his speech to an apathetic amphitheater. While they all praise his pretty words, they won’t help Dr. Pershing make a real difference in the new regime — an idealism that eventually leads to his downfall.

“Everything’s gonna be alright, kid.” – Kelleran

The Foundling

Slowly, we’re learning more about how Grogu escaped Order 66. In season 3, we meet an instrumental helper. The Jedi Knight Kelleran, played by a previous Star Wars live-action alum, risks everything to rescue the youngling. Luckily, his first words to Grogu aren’t a platitude. They’re a promise — one he delivers on bravely and beautifully.

“You walk both worlds.” – The Armorer

The Pirate

Ever since we’ve learned of the Death Watch™ group, we’ve considered them uncompromising and unyielding. The Armorer seems a paragon of these ideals. Yet in a moment of wisdom and kindness, she agrees to allow Bo-Katan to remove her helmet and unite all Mandalorians. Both women know they will be stronger together, after all.

“Is there no room for forgiveness in a galaxy so vast?” – The Duchess

Guns for Hire

In and out of context, this is an awesome quote. Because, let’s face it: A lot of Star Wars is about grudges and revenge. Lately, though, our favorite characters have learned to forget and forgive. We saw Boba Fett partner with Tusken Raiders/Sand People in The Book of Boba Fett even though audiences have always thought of them as antagonists. And in The Mandalorian, Din Djarin was finally able to make peace with droids. We love that for him.

“Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.” – Grogu, piloting IG-11

The Spies

Aw, it’s baby’s first car! After a grueling few episodes of attempting to rehabilitate IG-11, the droid is turned into a vehicle of sorts. Thus Grogu can sit and steer the mechanical body. He can also use its voice box. Of course, this particular feature gets a hilarious workout as Grogu argues with his dad about nearly everything.

“Surrender or fight?” – Moff Gideon

The Return

Moff Gideon and Bo-Katan Kryze have faced off plenty of times. The first time, Bo-Katan was forced to give up the Darksaber to him. Next, Bo-Katan defeated him but spared his life. Both could honestly be considered not committing to what actually needed to be done. So in this final instance, Moff Gideon mocks Bo-Katan’s indecision. Unknowingly, however, he inspires her to put an end to his terror once and for all.
