Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (2019) Poster

Oscar Isaac: Poe Dameron



  • Poe Dameron : There's writing on it.

    C-3PO : Perhaps I can translate. Oh! The location of the wayfinder has been inscribed upon this dagger. It's the clue that Master Luke was looking for.

    Poe Dameron : And?

    Rey : Where's the wayfinder?

    C-3PO : I am afraid I cannot tell you.

    Poe Dameron : 20.3 fazillion languages and you can't read that?

    C-3PO : Oh, I have read it, sir. I know exactly where the wayfinder is. Unfortunately, it is written in the runic language of the Sith.

    Rey : So what?

    C-3PO : My programming forbids me from translating it.

    Poe Dameron : So you're telling us the one time we need you to talk, you can't?

    C-3PO : Irony, sir. I am mechanically incapable of speaking translations from Sith. I believe the rule was passed by the Senate of the Old Republic...

  • C-3PO : Oh, my. A hex charm.

    Poe Dameron : A what?

    C-3PO : A common emblem of Sith loyalists.

    Rey : Sith.

    Finn : This was Ochi's?

    Poe Dameron : Luke sensed it. Ochi never left this place.

    Finn : And he ended up down here.

    Poe Dameron : He was headed for his ship. Same thing happened to us, happened to him.

    Finn : So how did Ochi get out?

    Rey : He didn't.

  • General Hux : I'm the spy.

    Poe Dameron : What?

    Finn : You?

    General Hux : We don't have much time.

    Poe Dameron : I knew it!

    Finn : No, you did not.

  • Finn : [playing Dejarik against Chewbacca]  How do you think he wins all the time?

    Poe Dameron : He cheats.

    Chewbacca : [roars] 

    Poe Dameron : I'm kidding! You're 250 years old! Of course you're better than us!

  • C-3PO : [after his memory is temporarily wiped]  I am C-3PO, human/cyborg relations. And you are?

    Poe Dameron : Okay, that's gonna be a problem.

  • Poe Dameron : How'd you do it? Defeat an empire with almost nothing.

    Lando Calrissian : We had each other. That's how we won.

  • Poe Dameron : What are you doing there, 3PO?

    C-3PO : Taking one last look, sir. At my friends.

  • [being chased by two Jet Troopers] 

    C-3PO : Oh! They fly now!

    Finn : They fly now?

    Poe Dameron : They fly now.

  • Zorii Bliss : So long, sky trash!

    Poe Dameron : Who's that flyer?

    Zorii Bliss : Take a guess, spice runner.

    Babu Frik : [pops up]  HEY!

    Poe Dameron : Zorii, you made it!

  • Poe Dameron : Move your metal ass, Threepio.

    C-3PO : [his memory has been briefly erased]  How dare you! We've just met.

  • Poe Dameron : Snap, they're on your tail!

    Snap Wexley : No, I see it!

    Poe Dameron : No, no, stop, stop!

    [Tie fighter shoots X-Wing, Snap Wexley screaming and it explodes] 

    Poe Dameron : NO!

  • Poe Dameron : Really could've used your help out there.

    Rey : How'd it go?

    Poe Dameron : Really bad actually. Really bad.

    Rey : Han's ship?

    Poe Dameron : What did you do to the droid?

    Rey : What did you do to the Falcon?

    Poe Dameron : The Falcon is in a lot better shape than he is.

    Rey : BB-8 is not on fire.

    Poe Dameron : What's left of him isn't on fire.

    Rey : Tell me what happened.

    Poe Dameron : You tell me first.

    Rey : You know what you are?

    Poe Dameron : What?

    Rey : You're difficult, really difficult, you're a difficult man.

  • Poe Dameron : Welcome to Exegol.

  • Rey : It's okay that we're here.

    FN-0606 : It's okay that you're here

    FN-1226 : It's good.

    Rey : You're relieved that we're here!

    FN-1226 : Thank goodness you're here...

    FN-0606 : Welcome, guys.

    Poe Dameron : Does she do that to us?

  • Poe Dameron : We've decoded the intel from the First Order spy and it confirms the worst. Somehow, Palpatine returned.

    Rose Tico : Wait, do we believe this?

    Colonel Aftab Ackbar : It cannot be. The Emperor is dead.

    Beaumont : Dark science. Cloning. Secrets only the Sith knew.

    Poe Dameron : He's been planning his revenge. His followers have been building something for years. The largest fleet the galaxy has ever known. He calls it the Final Order. In 16 hours, attacks on a free worlds begin. The Emperor and his fleet have been hiding in the Unknown Regions. On a world called Exegol.

  • Poe Dameron : What is this?

    C-3PO : The Aki-Aki Festival of the Ancestors. The celebration occurs once every 42 years.

    Finn : [dryly]  Well, that's lucky.

    C-3PO : Lucky indeed. This festival is known for both its colorful kites and its delectable sweets.

  • Poe Dameron : We're trying to find Babu Frik.

    Zorii Bliss : Babu? Babu only works for the crew. That's not you anymore.

    Rey : What crew?

    Zorii Bliss : Oh, funny he never mentioned it. Your friend's old job was running spice.

    Finn : You were a spice runner?

    Poe Dameron : You were a stormtrooper?

    Rey : Were you a spice runner?

    Poe Dameron : Were you a scavenger? We could do this all night.

    Zorii Bliss : [hoists her weapon higher]  You don't have all night.

  • Poe Dameron : The inscription that was on the dagger is in your memory?

    C-3PO : Yes, Master Poe. But the translation from a forbidden language cannot be retrieved. That is, short of a complete redacted memory bypass.

    Finn : A complete what?

    C-3PO : It's a terribly dangerous and sinful act performed on unwitting droids by dregs and criminals.

    Finn : Let's do that!

    Poe Dameron : I know a black market droidsmith.

    C-3PO : Black market droidsmith?

    Poe Dameron : But he's on Kijimi.

    Finn : What's wrong with Kijimi?

    Poe Dameron : I had a little bad luck on Kijimi.

  • Poe Dameron : Babu, can you make him translate it?

    Zorii Bliss : [interpreting]  Yes. But it will cause a complete...

    C-3PO : A complete memory wipe.

    Poe Dameron : Wait, wait, wait. We make him translate it, he won't remember... anything?

    Babu Frik : [in English]  Droid, memory go blank.

    C-3PO : Oh!

    Babu Frik : Blank, blank.

    C-3PO : There must be some other way.

    Finn : Doesn't R2 back up your memory?

    C-3PO : Oh, please. R2's storage units are famously unreliable.

    Rey : You know the odds better than any of us. Do we have a choice?

  • Finn : Leia never gave up. And neither will we. We're gonna show them we're not afraid.

    Poe Dameron : What our mothers and fathers fought for, we will not let die. Not today. Today, we make our last stand. For the galaxy. For Leia. For everyone we've lost.

    Finn : They've taken enough of us. Now we take the war to them.

  • Poe Dameron : My friends... I'm sorry. I thought we had a shot. But there's just too many of them.

    Lando Calrissian : But there are more of us, Poe. There are more of us.

    Poe Dameron : [seeing the number of ships emerging from hyperspace]  Look at this. Look at this!

    Finn : Lando, you did it. You did it!

    Poe Dameron : Hit those underbelly cannons. Every one we knock out is a world saved.

  • Rey : You were right before. I'm gonna pick up Luke's search for Exegol. I'm gonna start where his trail went cold. The Forbidden Desert of Pasaaana.

    Poe Dameron : Yeah, I know. We're going with you.

    [heading into the Falcon] 

    Poe Dameron : Chewie, you get that compressor fixed?

    Rey : I need to go alone.

    Finn : Yeah. Alone with friends.

    Rey : It's too dangerous, Finn.

    Finn : We go together.

    C-3PO : [Chewie howls and BB-8 chirps]  I wholeheartedly agree.

  • Poe Dameron : General, we're looking for Exegol.

    Lando Calrissian : Of course you are.

  • Beaumont : There were always whispers of his hunger to cheat death.

    Poe Dameron : So, Palpatine's been out there all this time. Pulling the strings.

    Leia Organa : Always. In the shadows. From the very beginning.

  • Rey : [making her way through the Festival of the Ancestors]  I've never seen anything like this.

    Finn : I've never seen so few wayfinders.

    Poe Dameron : There's always random First Order patrols in crowds like these. So keep your heads down. Chewie.

    [with a soft howl, Chewie crouches down] 

  • Rey : You lightspeed-skipped?

    Poe Dameron : Yeah, well, it got us back here, didn't it?

    Rey : Poe, the compressor's down.

    Poe Dameron : Oh, I know. I was there.

    Finn : Every time.

    Rey : You can't lightspeed-skip the Falcon!

    Poe Dameron : Actually, it turns out you can.

  • Finn : What are you doing?

    Poe Dameron : Lightspeed skipping.

    Finn : How do you know how to do that?

    Poe Dameron : [Chewie howls]  Yeah, well, Rey's not here, is she?

  • Poe Dameron : We gotta keep moving. Find someone who can translate that dagger. Like a helpful droid.

  • Zorii Bliss : You know, I'm still digging out of the hole you put me in when when you left to join the Resistance.

    [recognizing Rey] 

    Zorii Bliss : You. You're the one they're looking for. Bounty for her just might cover us.

    [to her crew] 

    Zorii Bliss : Djak'kankah!

    Poe Dameron : Don't djak'kankah.

  • Zorii Bliss : Heard you were spotted at Monk's Gate. Thought "he's not stupid enough to come back here."

    Poe Dameron : Oh, you'd be surprised.

    Rey : Who's this?

    Finn : What's going on?

    Poe Dameron : Guys, this is Zorii. Zorii, this is Rey and Finn.

    Zorii Bliss : I could pull this trigger right now.

    Poe Dameron : I've seen you do worse.

    Zorii Bliss : For a lot less.

    Poe Dameron : Can we just, uh... talk about this?

    Zorii Bliss : I wanna see your brains in the snow.

    Poe Dameron : So you're still mad?

  • Poe Dameron : [escaping from Jet Troopers]  Did we lose 'em?

    Finn : Looks like it!

    C-3PO : Excellent job, sir!

    [a stormtrooper appears on a speeder in front of them and opens fire] 

    C-3PO : Terrible job, sir!

  • Poe Dameron : I do not wanna know what made these tunnels.

    C-3PO : Judging by the circumference of the tunnel walls, there are numerous...

    Poe Dameron : I said I do not wanna know. Not.

  • Rey : So, what was it?

    Finn : What?

    Rey : What you were gonna tell me.

    Finn : When?

    Rey : When you were sinking into the sand, you said "I never told you..."

    Finn : I'll tell you later.

    Poe Dameron : You mean when Poe's not here?

    Finn : Yeah. Mm-hmm.

    Poe Dameron : We're gonna die in sand burrows and we're all keeping secrets?

    Finn : I'll tell you when you tell us about all that shifty stuff you do.

  • Poe Dameron : We've only got eight hours left. So what are we gonna do?

    Finn : What can we do? We gotta go back to base.

    Poe Dameron : We don't have time to go back. We are not giving up. If we do that, Chewie died for nothing.

    Finn : Poe, Chewie had the dagger.

    Poe Dameron : Well, then we gotta find another way.

    Finn : Well, there isn't. That was the only clue to the wayfinder thing, and it's gone.

    C-3PO : So true. The inscription lives only in my memory now.

  • Poe Dameron : [after sinking through quicksand]  Rey! Finn!

    C-3PO : You didn't say my name, sir, but I'm all right.

  • Poe Dameron : What the hell is this?

    Rey : Sinking fields! Try to grab something!

    C-3PO : Will this agony ever end?

  • Poe Dameron : [surveying stormtrooper patrols on Kijimi]  They're everywhere. All right, I know what we should do.

    C-3PO : So do I. We should leave.

    Poe Dameron : Clam it, 3PO.

  • Rey : [feeling something through the Force]  The dagger's on this ship. We need it.

    Poe Dameron : Why?

    Rey : A feeling. I'll meet you back at the hangar.

  • Poe Dameron : [after Rey heads to the Death Star wreckage alone]  What the hell was she thinking?

    Finn : Poe, we gotta go after her.

    Poe Dameron : We'll get the Falcon fixed, and get out there as fast as we can.

    Finn : No, we're gonna lose her.

    Poe Dameron : Look, she left us! What do you wanna do? Swim?

    Finn : She's not herself. You have no idea what she's fighting.

    Poe Dameron : And you do?

    Finn : Yeah, I do. And so does Leia.

    Poe Dameron : Well, I'm not Leia.

    Finn : That's for damn sure.

  • Jannah : Rough landing.

    Poe Dameron : I've seen worse.

    Jannah : I've seen better. Are you Resistance?

    Poe Dameron : That depends.

    Jannah : We picked up a transmission from someone named Babu Frik.

    C-3PO : Babu Frik? Oh, he's one of my oldest friends.

  • Poe Dameron : How long's it been like this?

    Zorii Bliss : First Order took most of the kids a long time ago. Can't stand the cries anymore. I've saved up enough to get out. I'm going to the Colonies.

    Poe Dameron : How? All those hyperlanes are blocked.

    [she shows him a small disc] 

    Poe Dameron : That's a First Order Captain's medallion. I've never seen a real one.

    Zorii Bliss : Free passage through any blockade. Landing privileges, any vessel.

    [opening the visor of her helmet] 

    Zorii Bliss : Wanna come with me?

    Poe Dameron : I can't walk out on this war. Not 'til it's over. Maybe it is. We sent out a call for help at the Battle of Crait. Nobody came. Everyone's so afraid. They've given up.

    Zorii Bliss : No, I don't believe you believe that.

  • Zorii Bliss : Night raids are gonna start soon. I'll keep lookout.

    Poe Dameron : I'm coming with you.

    Zorii Bliss : You still don't trust me, huh?

    Poe Dameron : Did you ever trust me?

    Zorii Bliss : Nope.

  • D-O : What is that?

    Rey : It's the Death Star. It's a bad place from an old war.

    Poe Dameron : It's gonna take us years to find what we're looking for.

    C-3PO : Oh, dear.

    Rey : [remembering the dagger's translation]  "Only this blade tells."

  • C-3PO : [helping repair the Falcon after it crash-lands]  What a dreadful situation. Is every day like this for you people? Madness.

    Poe Dameron : [to Chewie]  Did we ever find his volume control?

  • Finn : The ship's this way. Follow me.

    [as a stormtrooper spots them, he shoots a blast door closed] 

    Finn : Wrong way!

    Poe Dameron : There's not really a right way, is there?

  • Rey : We have to get to that wreck. There's something inside there we need.

    Jannah : I can take you there by water.

    Finn : Have you seen the water?

    Jannah : Not now. Too dangerous. We can go first light tomorrow.

    Rey : We can't wait that long. We don't have the time.

    Poe Dameron : Or the choice. Let's get that ship fixed.

  • Zorii Bliss : [giving Poe her First Order medallion after they learn Chewie is alive]  Might get you on a capital ship. Go help your friend.

    Poe Dameron : Zorii, I don't think I can take this.

    Zorii Bliss : I don't care what you think.

    Rey : [seeing Ren's TIE land]  We have to go. Now.

    Poe Dameron : Come with us.

    Zorii Bliss : Poe.

    Poe Dameron : Can I kiss you?

  • Poe Dameron : That's an old craft ID. That's Luke Skywalker's X-Wing.

    C-3PO : It's transmitting course marker signals on its way to the Unknown Regions.

    Finn : It's Rey. She's going to Exegol. She's showing us. She's showing us how to get there.

    Poe Dameron : Then we go together.

  • Poe Dameron : Kijimi? How?

    Commander D'Acy : A blast from a Star Destroyer. A ship from the new Sith fleet. Out of the Unknowns.

    Beaumont : The Emperor sent a ship from Exegol. Does that mean every ship in the fleet...

    Poe Dameron : Has planet-killing weapons. Of course they do. All of 'em. This is how he finishes it.

  • Finn : All the information you need for an airstrike on Exegol.

    Poe Dameron : Yeah, except how to get there. Are you seeing these atmo readings?

    Finn : It's a mess out there. Magnetic crossfields.

    Rose Tico : Gravity wells, solar winds.

    Poe Dameron : How does a fleet even take off from there?

    C-3PO : [approaching]  Terribly sorry. I'm afraid R2's memory bank must be crossed with his logic receptors. He says he is receiving a transmission from... Master Luke.

  • Finn : I gotta talk to you about something.

    Poe Dameron : I gotta talk to you about something. I can't do this alone. I need you in command with me.

    Finn : Look, this droid... thank you. I appreciate that.

    Poe Dameron : General.

    Finn : General.

  • Finn : This droid has a ton of information about Exegol.

    Poe Dameron : Wait, what, Cone-face?

    D-O : I am D-O.

    Poe Dameron : Sorry, D-O.

    Finn : He was going to Exegol with Ochi of Bestoon.

    Poe Dameron : Why was Ochi going there?

    Finn : To bring the little girl he was supposed to take from Jakku to the Emperor. He wanted her alive.

  • Poe Dameron : [sitting at Leia's deathbed]  I gotta tell you, I don't really know... how to do this. What you did... I'm not ready.

    Lando Calrissian : [entering]  Neither were we. Luke, Han, Leia, me... who's ever ready?

  • Pilot Tyce : The navigation tower has been deactivated.

    Finn : What?

    Snap Wexley : Those ships need that signal. It's gotta be coming from somewhere.

    Poe Dameron : They figured out what we're doing. Call off the ground invasion!

    Finn : [spotting a Star Destroyer]  Wait. The nav signal's coming from that command ship. That's our drop zone.

    Jannah : How do you know?

    Finn : A feeling.

  • Finn : As long as those Star Destroyers are on Exegol, we can hit 'em.

    Beaumont : Hit 'em how?

    Rose Tico : They can't activate their shields until they leave atmosphere.

    Poe Dameron : Which isn't easy on Exegol. Ships that size need help taking off. Nav can't tell which way's up out there.

    Pilot Tyce : So, how do the ships take off?

    Poe Dameron : They use a signal from a navigation tower like this one.

    Finn : Except they won't. Air team's gonna find the tower, ground team's gonna blast it.

    Pilot Vanik : Ground teams?

    Finn : I have an idea for that.

    Poe Dameron : Once the tower's down, the fleet will be stuck in atmo for just minutes, with no shields and no way out.

  • Rose Tico : We think hitting the cannons might ignite the main reactors.

    Lando Calrissian : That's our chance.

    Beaumont : We need to pull some Holdo maneuvers. Do some real damage.

    Finn : Come on. That move is one in a million. Fighters and freighters can take out their cannons if there are enough of us.

    Nien Nunb : [in Sullustese]  There aren't enough of us!

    Lieutenant Connix : He's right. We'd be no more than bugs to them.

    Finn : That's where Lando and Chewie come in. They'll take the Falcon to the Core Systems. Send out a call for help for anybody listening.

    Poe Dameron : We've got friends out there. They'll come if they know there's hope.

    [murmurs of disagreement] 

    Poe Dameron : They will. First Order wins by making us think we're alone. We're not alone. Good people will fight if we lead them.

  • Finn : Red Five is in the air. Rey's alive.

    Poe Dameron : I see her.

    Finn : People are rising up all over the galaxy. Poe... we did it.

    Poe Dameron : We did it.

  • Poe Dameron : [evading TIE Fighters in the Falcon]  Finn, you're supposed to be getting rid of those things!
