- ―Han Solo to the portmaster's deputy
The portmaster's deputy was dispatched to install an impoundment-fastener on the docking bay blast doors of the Millennium Falcon. Han Solo and Chewbacca devised a plan to retrieve the molecularly coded key from him. The Wookiee and the smuggler created a three-way collision with the man, soaking him with liquor carried by Chewbacca. In the ensuing confusion and argument, Solo pick-pocketed the deputy. Not wanting a superior officer to catch him in this situation, the deputy hurried on his way.
