"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Deserter (#2.10)" (2010)
Captain Rex: You're a deserter.
Cut Lawquane: Well, well... I like to think I'm merely exercising my freedom to choose: to choose not to kill for a living.
Captain Rex: That is not your choice to make. You swore an oath to the Republic. You have a duty.
Cut Lawquane: I have a duty. You're right. But to my family. Does that count, or do you still plan to turn me in?
Captain Rex: Do I have a choice?

Cut Lawquane: What's your number?
Captain Rex: Rex. I also have a name, believe it or not.

Captain Rex: Because I'm part of the most pivotal moment in the history of the Republic. If we fail then our children and their children could be forced to live under an evil I can't well imagine.

Captain Rex: You have wonderful children.
Cut Lawquane: I know you think I'm a coward, Rex, but believe me. I'll fight to my last breath to keep them safe.

Suu: Captain Rex, are you going to turn in my husband?
Captain Rex: I'm sorry, Suu. It's my duty. But in my condition I probably won't remember any of this.
Suu: Thank you!
Captain Rex: You're still a deserter, Cut, but you're certainly not a coward.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: [comlink beeps] Captain Rex, are you still with us?
Captain Rex: Yes General Kenobi, I'm still with you and thankfully on the mend, Sir.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: That's great news. We certainly missed you at the party.
Captain Rex: Sorry Sir, I had one of my own to attend.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Can't wait to hear about it. We're standing by.

Cut Lawquane: You're welcome to stay, Rex.
Captain Rex: This is your home, Cut. My family... is elsewhere.

Captain Rex: What? What happened?
Hardcase: Commando droids took a potshot that would've gone straight through your heart had it been two inches to the left.
Captain Rex: I can't move my arm.
Kix: You have some nerve damage.
Captain Rex: Understood. Now patch me up and let's get on with it.
Kix: Sir, you're in no condition. It will heal, but it will take time.
Captain Rex: We're getting underway, Kix. That's an order.
Kix: Sir, as the team medic, when it comes to the health of the men, including you, I outrank everyone.

Cut Lawquane: Who are you? What are you doing here?
Captain Rex: You're a clone.
Cut Lawquane: So... I see the war has finally made its way out here, and I guess I can expect a visit from some droids soon.
Captain Rex: What's your number and rank?
Cut Lawquane: Heh. My name is Lawquane, Cut Lawquane, and I'm just a simple farmer.
Captain Rex: You're a deserter.
Cut Lawquane: Well, I like to think I'm merely exercising my freedom to choose: to choose not to kill for a living.
Captain Rex: That is not your choice to make. You swore an oath to the Republic. You have a duty.
Cut Lawquane: I have a duty, you're right. But it's to my family. Does that count, or do you still plan to turn me in?
Captain Rex: Do I have a choice?

Shaeeah: He looks just like you, Daddy. I told him.
Cut Lawquane: Ah, you did, huh? I was just making our guest, Captain, um... What's your number?
Captain Rex: Rex. I also have a name, believe it or not.

Suu: He was injured. His men brought him here. I told him he could stay just for the night.
Cut Lawquane: Of course he can. We never turn away those in need, do we?
Jek: No, we always help anyone we can.
Cut Lawquane: Right. You, uh, you look hungry, Rex.
Captain Rex: No I'm fine. I'll stay here.
Jek: No, you have to eat with us. Please?
Shaeeah: Please?
Cut Lawquane: They're never going to stop till you say yes.
Captain Rex: All right. I'll join you.

Cut Lawquane: Yes, well, you and I may be clones, but we're still individuals. You have a name rather than a number, Captain. Why is that?
Captain Rex: Perhaps our leaders feel it's more efficient way of distinguishing us.
Cut Lawquane: More efficient than a number? Hmm. I doubt the Kami Ian's think that way. Still, a name has to make you feel unique, especially in an army where everyone looks like you and talks like you.
Captain Rex: Actually, I've never really thought about it.
Cut Lawquane: Yes, you have.
Captain Rex: Well, how would you know?
Cut Lawquane: Because I'm as close to you as any life-form can be. I've seen how you look at my family, our home. Come on, Rex, admit it. You've thought about what your life could look like if you were to also leave the army, choose he life you want.
Captain Rex: What if I am choosing the life I want? What if I'm staying in the army because it's meaningful to me?
Cut Lawquane: And how is it meaningful?
Captain Rex: Because I'm part of the most pivotal moment in the history of the Republic. If we fail, then our children and their children could be forced to live under an evil I can't well imagine.
Cut Lawquane: If you were to have children, of course, but hat would be against the rules, wouldn't it? Isn't that what somebody programmed you to believe, Captain?
Captain Rex: No, Cut, it's simply what I believe. It doesn't matter if it's my children or other people's children. Does that meet with your approval?
Cut Lawquane: Perfectly.

Cut Lawquane: What made me decide to leave the corps? Shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, our troop transport got caught between two Separatist gunships. They fired at us with everything they had. We crashed. Most of us were either dead or severely injured. So when they started working their way through the wounded, killing us off, I knew there was no hope. I ran. It still haunts me.
Captain Rex: I'm sorry.
Cut Lawquane: It's the day I felt my life didn't have any meaning. Everyone I cared about, my team, was gone. I was just another expendable clone waiting for my turn to be slaughtered in a war that made no sense to me. Can you understand that, Rex?
Captain Rex: I've been in countless battles and lost many brothers. They were my family. My home.

Captain Rex: What weapons do you have? We can catch hem in a crossfire. You take that corner.
Cut Lawquane: No, Captain. With respect, you're not in charge here.
Captain Rex: I-I can be useful.
Cut Lawquane: Sir, you're injured. You have only one good arm.
Captain Rex: But I can fight.
Cut Lawquane: So can I. Rex, I need you to be the last line of defense for my family.
Captain Rex: [sighs] I'll take care of them.
Cut Lawquane: Thank you.

Captain Rex: You're still a deserter, Cut, but you're certainly not a coward.


"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Rookies (#1.5)" (2008)
Captain Rex: Hands above your heads. Take your sun bonnets off.

Fiver: Permission to take point, sir?
Captain Rex: I'm always first, kid.

Captain Rex: All right, listen up. There's only one target of interest in this sector: Kamino. It's the closest thing we clones have to a home. Today we fight for more than the Republic. Today we fight for all our brothers back home, understood?


Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
[Rex orders an attack on the battle droids]
Captain Rex: Scrap 'em!

Captain Rex: Who's the youngling?
Ahsoka Tano: I'm Master Skywalker's Padawan. The name's Ahsoka Tano.
Captain Rex: Sir, I thought you said you'd never have a Padawan.
Anakin Skywalker: There's been a mix-up. The youngling isn't with me.
Ahsoka Tano: Stop calling me that! You're stuck with me, Skyguy.
Anakin Skywalker: [Rex bursts out laughing] What did you just call me? Don't get snippy with me, little one. You know, I don't even think you're old enough to be a Padawan.
Ahsoka Tano: Well maybe I'm not, but Master Yoda thinks I am...

Ahsoka Tano: So, if you're a captain, and I'm a Jedi, then technically I outrank you, right?
Captain Rex: I my book, experience outranks everything.

Anakin Skywalker: [speaking into wrist comlink] Gunship, come in. Hawk, we need an evac in the South tower.

Captain Rex: South tower? We're in the North.
Anakin Skywalker: Not for long
[draws his lightsaber]

Captain Rex: Where were you before you went to the mess, Chopper?
Chopper: Nowhere. Walking around.
Commander Cody: Son, you know we'll need a better answer than that.
Chopper: [sighs] I was hiding... at the South exit. Didn't want anyone to see me string these together.
[takes out a selfmade necklace]
Captain Rex: [with disgust] Battle droid fingers.
Chopper: I just... I just wanted something back. I guess I felt like... like they owed me.
Clone Trooper: I always knew there was something deficient about you.

Captain Rex: There's no escape now, you piece of rankweed!


"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: ARC Troopers (#3.2)" (2010)
Captain Rex: 99, you can't!
99: I'm a soldier, like you! This is what I was bred for.

Captain Rex: Both of you showed valour out there. Real courage. Remind me of me, actually.
Commander Cody: Echo, Fives, you're both officially being made ARC Troopers.
Captain Rex: I don't think the Separatists will be coming back here any time soon, but if they do, Kamino will be lucky to have clones like you defending it. Good job, men.

Clone Cadets: What are we gonna do?
99: A Separatist victory means death for all of us. The cadet is right. What are we gonna do?
Captain Rex: We fight.
Clone Cadets: But our training's not finished.
Fives: Look around. We're one and the same, same heart same blood. Your training is in your blood. And my blood's boiling for a fight.
Echo: This is our home. This is our war.


"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Carnage of Krell (#4.10)" (2011)
Captain Rex: I used to believe that being a good soldier meant doing everything they told you. That's how they engineered us. But we're not droids. We're not programmed. You have to learn to make your own decisions.

Captain Rex: What's the point of all this. I mean, why?
Fives: I don't know, sir. I don't think anybody knows. But I do know, that some day, this war is gonna end.
Captain Rex: Then what? We're soldiers. What happens to us then?

Mace Windu: What is Skywalker doing?
[hands macrobinoculars to General Kenobi]
Obi-Wan Kenobi: It appears to be one of Anakin's improvised plans.
Mace Windu: How can it be a plan if it's improvised?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Not to worry, just catch them when they fall.
Captain Rex: A lot of the General's plans involve falling.


"Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Defenders of Peace (#1.14)" (2009)
