Wedge: "Sithspit! What's that?"
Janson: "That's the sun, Wedge. It's after dawn."
Wedge: "Well, it offends me. Turn it off."
Wedge Antilles and Wes Janson[src]
"How long has it been since you've been on a date, Wedge? I don't think some of the Wraiths were born then."
Wes Janson, to Wedge Antilles[src]
Tycho: "I've been reviewing engineering and performance statistics."
Janson: "What, while we've been maneuvering?"
Tycho: "Yes, restraining myself so that you could keep up with me has left me plenty of time for intellectual pursuits. I also composed a symphony and drafted a plan to bring peace to the galaxy."
Tycho Celchu and Wes Janson[src]
"Oh, stop worrying, Wedge. It's obvious they adore you. You could throw up all over yourself and they'd love it. By nightfall they'd all be doing it. They'd call it the 'Wedge Purge.' They'd be eating different-colored foods just to add variety."
Wes Janson[src]
Janson: "Red Two, this is Red Three. Am I crazy, or is the general doing what he tells us never to do?"
Tycho: "Three, Two. Yes you are, and yes he is. Pay no attention."
Wes Janson and Tycho Celchu, about Wedge Antilles[src]
"Yub, yub, Commander."
Wes Janson, to Wedge Antilles[src]
Janson: "His name is Kettch, and he's an Ewok."
Wedge: "No."
Janson: "Oh, yes. Determined to fight. You should hear him say, 'Yub, yub.' He makes it a battle cry."
Wes Janson, to Wedge Antilles concerning entrants into Wraith Squadron[src]
"Your orders are simple. I punch. You suffer. Got it?"
Wes Janson, to Thanaer ke Sekae[src]
Janson: "Leader, this is Three. Are you crazy? Acknowledge."
Wedge: "Three, Leader. That's affirmative."
Wes Janson and Wedge Antilles[src]
Janson: "I'm coming back to Rogue Squadron. That was the deal."
Wedge: "Wes, the Wraiths don't want you anyway."
Elassar: "That's right. You're unlucky."
Dia: "I hate how serious he is all the time."
Runt: "We don't like the way he chews his food."
Shalla: "But we'll miss his rear end."
Wraiths, upon Wes Janson's departure from the squadron[src]
"Oh, wonderful. I killed his father. He hates me. He knows how to make bombs. Come on, Wedge, how does this story end?"
Wes Janson, talking about Kell Tainer[src]
Corran: "Are there more like her at home?"
Janson: "A planet full."
Corran: "Keep them there."
Corran Horn and Wes Janson[src]
Wedge: "If this culture is as pilot-happy as we were told, taking the most sensible course out of here might cost me credibility I need. This could just be a test of nerve."
Hobbie: "Leader, Four. My nerves are already tested. Can I go home?"
Wedge Antilles and Hobbie, prior to engaging Adumari pilots[src]
Tycho: "I don't remember. I get shot down in so many engagements, Hobbie."
Janson: "At least you weren't killed in action. Remember what Wedge used to tell people about me and the Battle of Hoth?"
Wedge: "Even Luke fell for that."
―A conversation about Wes Janson's supposed death[src]
Face: "Forgive the intrusion, but we heard that the new vintage of Piggy was being decanted."
Lara: "But it looks like it's turned to vinegar."
Dia: "And it's corked."
Elassar: "I am pleased to meet you. I need you to kill me. Nobody else will."
Janson: "To make sure you remember this little event, we've had some special things made up for you. Bacta-flavored candy. Bacta-flavored brandy. Bacta-flavored cheese."
Shalla: "Kell and I worked up an instructional manual for you. It's called, How to Dodge."
Voort "Piggy" saBinring receives a warm welcome from his squadmates after emerging from a bacta tank[src]
Janson: "You look like some weird cross between a starfighter pilot and a Batravian gumplucker."
Hobbie: "Wes, I don't even know what that is."
Janson: "Sure you do, Hobbie. A starfighter pilot is a guy who flies an X-wing without getting blown up. Check the Basic Dictionary. Though I can understand how you get confused."
Wes Janson and Derek Klivian, after the latter's craft was disabled[src]
Face: "And now, the two kings fight one another to the death, and we space the loser."
Janson: "Whoa, there. Try again."
Face: "We space the winner?"
Janson: "One more."
Face: "We buy you a drink."
Janson: "That's more like it."
Garik "Face" Loran and Wes Janson[src]
Janson: "Tell me about a female pilot, Twin Suns Leader. She has a nice voice. Does she have looks to match?"
Wedge: "Well, yes. She's nice looking."
Janson: "Married? Attached?"
Wedge: "Attached, I think. Recently attached."
Janson: "So, who is she?"
Wedge: "Jay something." [to Tycho Celchu] "Isn't that right? Jay, Jay... That's it. Jaina Solo."
Wes Janson and Wedge Antilles[src]
Janson: "So my question is, why me? Why didn't you bring Tycho up with you? He's your wingman. And he's better with records."
Wedge: "I need someone to be in charge on the ground when I'm up here. For example, if there's a diplomatic emergency."
Janson: "I can be in charge on the ground."
Wedge: "Oh, that'd be good. You and Hobbie running through the streets of Cartann, leaving destruction in your wake, taking charge when a delicate political disaster strikes. Here's an example. A noble of Cartann comes to you and says, 'I know we have no diplomatic relations yet, but I'm here to request asylum in the New Republic.' What do you say?"
Janson: "Is she good-looking?"
Wedge: "Thanks for making my point."
Wes Janson and Wedge Antilles[src]
Darpen: "I was once a pilot. Briefly. Tierfon Yellow Aces. My talents lay elsewhere, though, so I ended up in a less violent service."
Janson: "His talents certainly did lie elsewhere. They weren't in landing. Tomer here made the Aces' list for a landing almost horrible enough to kill him two different ways. His Y-wing was shot to pieces and his repulsorlifts were dead. Had to land, though, or he'd never get dinner. Luckily we were based on a low-grav moon at the time, big long stretch of duracrete serving as a landing zone. All the other Y-wings clear off the landing zone and he lines up on it, descends toward it like he was landing an atmospheric fighter without repulsorlifts. Drops his skids as he gets close. The skids take the initial impact but he bounces, so he's like some sort of hop-and-grab insect all down the duracrete. But he's lucky enough that he stays top side up. Finally he's bled off a lot of momentum, but he loses control and his Y-wing rolls. Comes to a stop on its belly and he's safe. Then his ejector seat malfunctions and shoots him off toward space. With grav that low, he achieves escape velocity. We had to send a rescue shuttle up after him or he'd still be sailing through the void, one cold cadaver."
Darpen: "I saved the astromech. And the Y-wing was repairable."
Janson: "Sure. But seeing you as that wishbone skidded to a stop, seeing you sag in relief—and then, poof! you're headed toward the stars—"
Darpen: "As you can see, I've provided amusement for years."
Tomer "Ejector" Darpen and Wes Janson, explain Darpen's nickname to Wedge Antilles[src]
Janson: "They're calling me 'the darling one.' "
Wedge: "Who is?"
Janson: "The court, the crowds. They have tags for us all now, and I'm the darling one. Tycho is 'the doleful one.'"
Tycho: "I'm not sad."
Janson: "No, but you look sad. Makes the ladies of Cartann's court want to comfort you. They're so sad about wanting to comfort you that you could comfort them."
Hobbie: "And Tycho the only one of us with a successful relationship with a woman. Missed opportunities, Tycho."
Janson: "Hobbie is 'the dour one.' Not too much romance in that, Hobbie. And Wedge is 'the diligent one.' That may not sound too romantic, Wedge, but 'diligent' has a couple of colloquial meanings here that add to your luster—"
Wedge: "I don't want to know."
Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, Tycho Celchu, and Derek "Hobbie" Klivian discuss their nicknames on Adumar[src]
"So. Who's best-looking in women's dress? I vote for myself."
Wes Janson, escaping Adumar with Rogue Squadron in women's clothing[src]
Janson: "No friends left. We've managed to make everyone hate us."
Tycho: "I thought that's what you'd been trying to achieve your whole life."
Janson: "Good point. What am I complaining about? No, wait, I know – they haven't yet erected statues of us to throw rotten fruit at."
Hobbie: "Give us another day."
Wes Janson, Tycho Celchu, and "Hobbie" Klivian, unpopular on Adumar[src]
Janson: "His name is Kettch, and he's an Ewok."
Wedge: "No."
Janson: "Oh, yes. Determined to fight. You should hear him say, 'Yub, yub.' He makes it a battle cry."
Wedge: "Wes, assuming he could be educated up to Alliance fighter-pilot standards, an Ewok couldn't even reach an X-wing's controls."
Janson: "He wears arm and leg extensions, prosthetics built for him by a sympathetic medical droid. And he's anxious to go, Commander."
Wedge: "Please tell me you're kidding."
Wedge Antilles and Wes Janson[src]
Wedge: "Just feeling my years. Speaking of which, I think I'll get in some simulator practice and beat up on the youngsters."
Janson: "That'll make you feel better. It always does me."
Wedge Antilles and Wes Janson[src]
"Diplomacy means saying something soothing as you squeeze the trigger, right?"
Wes Janson, impromptu ambassador[src]
Tomer: "The refresher. You'll be dealing with unfamiliar plumbing, which you'll probably think of as backworld stuff, so I'll need to show you how the devices work."
Hobbie: "A refresher course."
Janson: "You beat me to it."
Tomer Darpen, helping to familiarize Rogue Squadron with their refresher and other amenities on Adumar[src]
Wedge: "Tuck that away. Take it out when we have our answer and it will make my reputation as a military wizard."
Wes: "You already have that reputation."
Wedge: "Well, then, I'll have two."
Wedge Antilles and Wes Janson, as the former hands the latter a flimsi with his correct prediction of Zsinj's plan[src]
Wedge: "So we send out one squadron an hour or two ahead of each major formation. Pilots skilled at terrain-following flying. They fly beneath the altitude at which lightbounce sensors start to be active and set up in deep cover beneath the projected engagement zone. Because, until they break up to pursue enemies, Cartann squadrons tend to fly in pretty close formations—"
Janson: "So our advance units can fire their missiles up at their squadrons passing overhead. Perhaps taking out multiple fighters per missile in those first few seconds."
Hobbie: "Ooh. I volunteer. I want that. Let me do that. Please."
Wedge: "Have you ever seen behavior like this?"
Tycho: "Only when he really, really needs to run to the refresher. Hobbie, why?"
Hobbie: "Because I am sick of it. I'm sick to death of 'Hello, I'm so-and-so and I've killed this many enemies, and I challenge you, and we bow and go by the rules and say cute things to one another, and isn't it nice that we're all dead now?' Tycho, I want to shoot something. I want to blow something up. No apologies. No advance warning. Just lethal efficiency. Before frustration kills me."
Tycho: "More words than he's strung together at once since I've known him. All right, Hobbie. You'll be in charge of the advance squadron for lead group."
Janson: "I don't think he's entirely sane right now. I'd better stay with him."
Wedge Antilles, Wes Janson, Derek Klivian, and Tycho Celchu discuss tactics on Adumar[src]
Hobbie: "Have I told you today how much I really, really hate you?"
Janson: "Oh, sure, your lips say 'I hate you' but your eyes say—"
Hobbie: "That someday I'll murder you in your sleep?"
Derek "Hobbie" Klivian and Wes Janson[src]
Janson: "So, when you joined Starfighter Command, did you have any presentiment that someday you'd be impersonating an Ewok?"
Wedge: "Now the waist."
Janson: "Sure. You know, pretending to be an Ewok is a felony on some worlds."
Wedge: "Wes."
Janson: "And I think it's probably against regulations to fly starfighters while performing a puppet show."
Wedge: "Wes."
Janson: [salutes] "Yub, yub, Commander."
Wes Janson helps Wedge Antilles into an Ewok disguise[src]
Hobbie: "Hooray, we'll make it to the building before the swoopies will. We can defend it as ordered, Janson!"
Janson: "That leaves us only one problem."
Hobbie: "What's that?"
Janson: "Uh, Hobbie, what are we defending with?"
Hobbie: "Our good looks and trenchant wit?"
Janson: "That's quite enough defeatist talk, thank you."
Derek "Hobbie" Klivian and Wes Janson defend against an attack on the wedding of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade[src]
