To absolutely nobody’s surprise, the second season of the Disney+ live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian was a hit from start to finish.
The Mandalorian follows the adventures of a Mandalorian bounty hunter named Din Djarin as he traverses the outer reaches of a post-Empire galaxy. Season 2 found Din continuing on his journey with his bounty-turned-sidekick-turned-basically-adopted-son Grogu, though his mission to deliver the Child to the Jedi did not prove to be an easy one. The two met many new faces along the way and found themselves challenged time and time again.
Portrayed by Pedro Pascal, Din Djarin has been an incredible lead from the very beginning. Though his face is never (well, let’s just say seldom, actually) seen, Pascal has mastered the art of conveying a wide range of emotions through a disciplined command of both the inflection of his voice and his body language. Arguably, one of the best things about Din (though let’s be honest, it’s a long list) is his way with words.
We’ve compiled some of Din’s best lines from season 2 of The Mandalorian, including the funniest, the most meaningful and heartfelt, and those that were downright threatening.
“Wherever I go, he goes.”
If there was any question as to just how much Din had come to care for Grogu after the events of the first season, he made things abundantly clear from the get-go in episode 1 of season 2.
“Take it off, or I will.”
When it comes to his creed, Din Djarin doesn’t play games. Regardless of how Cobb Vanth obtained that armor, there’s no way Din was going to let him keep it.
“May the Force be with you.”
Din isn’t quite up to speed with all the ins and outs of the Jedi and the Force. But regardless, he decides the best way to blend in and act natural is to (very) awkwardly say one of the galaxy’s most well-known catch phrases. Nothing suspicious to see here, carry on. This definitely isn’t the ship you’re looking for.
“Wake me up if someone shoots at us. Or that door gets sucked off its rails. I’m kidding. If that happened, we’d all be dead. Sweet dreams.”
This was one of the best examples of Din’s gentle and poetic elegance when addressing others. He really has such a kind bedside manner, don’t you think?
“A Mandalorian and a Jedi? They’ll never see it coming.”
Considering the not-so-friendly past between the Mandalorians and the Jedi Order, he certainly had a point here.
“Does this look Jedi to you?”
He’s doing his best, okay? This is coming from the same guy that refers to the Jedi as a race of enemy sorcerers, after all.
“You may think you have some idea what you are in possession of, but you do not. Soon, he will be back with me. He means more to me than you will ever know.”
One of the best moments overall from season 2 was when Din ominously recited Moff Gideon’s threats from the first season back to him almost verbatim, making it clear that he would be rescuing Grogu from his clutches.
Though we first heard this Star Wars swear word uttered by the Mythrol in season 1, the phrase truly caught on this season as Din and Cara Dune both used it repeatedly, with much enthusiasm.
“How much do you want for it? Just kidding. But not really. You know, if this thing ever divides or buds, I will gladly pay for the offspring.”- Peli Motto
Peli Motto was a welcome return this season, and her adoration for Grogu knows no bounds. No, seriously, literally no bounds at all.
“Let’s just say they might recognize my face” – Boba Fett
What’s better than the return of Boba Fett? The dangerous and deadly Boba Fett making a clone joke in the most deadpan manner, of course (and let’s be honest, Din probably didn’t even get the joke).
