- "I am saving you the trouble of embarrassing yourself with all the mesa mesa bantha poodoo. Just don't."
- ―Aro N'Cookkaala, to Han Solo
Gunganese was the native language of the Gungans, an amphibious species from Naboo. In practice, the Gungans often used a pidgin tongue that combined Galactic Basic with Gunganese words and speech patterns. Although stereotyped as exclusively using the pidgin, some Gungans, like Aro N'Cookkaala, spoke perfect Basic.
