John Boyega: Finn



  • 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!

  • Finn : How do we thank you?

    Boolio : Win the war.

  • [being chased by two Jet Troopers] 

    C-3PO : Oh! They fly now!

    Finn : They fly now?

    Poe Dameron : They fly now.

  • Finn : Boolio, good to see you You got something for us?

    Boolio : From a new ally! A spy in the First Order!

    Finn : A spy? Who?

    Boolio : I don't know! Transfer the message! Get it to Leia, hurry!

  • General Hux : Wait. Wait. Blast me in the arm. Quick.

    Finn : What?

    General Hux : Or they'll know.

    [Finn shoots him in the leg] 

    General Hux : No. Aah!

    Finn : Why are you helping us?

    General Hux : I don't care if you win. I need Kylo Ren to lose.

  • 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.

  • Finn : This is a First Order part.

    Jannah : There's an old cruiser on the west ridge. Stripped for parts. The one we were assigned to. The one we escaped in.

    Finn : Okay, wait. You were First Order?

    Jannah : Not by choice. We were conscripted kids. All of us. I was TZ-1719. Stormtrooper.

    Finn : FN-2187.

    Jannah : You?

    Finn : I never knew there were more.

    Jannah : Deserters? All of us here were stormtroopers. We mutinied at the battle of Ansett Island. They told us to fire on civilians. We wouldn't do it. We laid our weapons down.

    Finn : All of you?

    Jannah : The whole company. I don't even know how it happened. It wasn't a decision, really, it was like...

    Finn : An instinct. Feeling.

    Jannah : A feeling.

    Finn : The Force. The Force brought me here. It brought me to Rey. And Poe.

    Jannah : You say that like you're sure it's real.

    Finn : It's real. I wasn't sure then... but I am now.

  • 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.

  • Rey : I lost control.

    Finn : It wasn't your fault.

    Rey : It was.

    Finn : No. It was Ren. He made you do it.

    Rey : Chewie's gone. That power came from me. Finn, there are things you don't know.

    Finn : Then tell me.


    Rey : I, uh, had a vision. Of the Sith throne. And who was on it.

    Finn : Ren?

    Rey : [shaking voice]  And me.

  • 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.

  • Rey : So, bad mood?

    Finn : Me?

    Rey : [pointing at Poe]  Him.

    Finn : Always.

  • Finn : [watching Poe hotwire a speeder]  How do you know how to do that?

  • Rey : We have to go. Back to the Falcon. Now.

    Finn : Why?

    Rey : It's Ren.

  • 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?

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Finn : What is this place?

    C-3PO : This isn't the afterlife, is it? Are droids allowed here?

  • Zorii Bliss : [conversing with Babu in an alien language]  He says he's found something in your droid's forbidden memory bank. Words, translated from Sith.

    Rey : That's it.

    Finn : Yeah, that's what we need.

    Zorii Bliss : [turning to Poe]  Who are you hanging out with that speaks Sith?

  • C-3PO : The Emperor's wayfinder is in the Imperial vault. At delta 3-6, transient 9-3-6, bearing 3-2, on a moon in the Endor system. From the southern shore. Only this blade tells. Only this blade tells.

    Finn : The Endor system. Where the last war ended?

  • 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.

  • Rey : Something's not right about all of this.

    Finn : Hmm?

    Rey : I know where I've seen it. The ship he was on. Ochi's ship.

    Finn : What?

    Rey : The day my parents left. They were on that ship.

    Finn : Are you sure?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Pilot Tyce : You wanna launch a ground invasion on a Star Destroyer?

    Finn : I don't want to, but we can't take out that ship's nav system from the air. Give us cover. We gotta keep that fleet there 'til help arrives.

    Rose Tico : We hope.

    Finn : We hope.

  • 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.
