Jyn Erso Quotes:
Jyn Erso: We have hope. Rebellions are built on hope!
K-2SO: I've got a bad feeling about...
Cassian Andor: K!
Jyn Erso: Quiet!
K-2SO: The captain says you're a friend. I will not kill you.
Jyn Erso: Thanks.
Jyn Erso: [from celebration reel] May the Force be with us.
Jyn Erso: I'm not used to people sticking around when things go bad.
Cassian Andor: Welcome home.
Mon Mothma: On your own from the age of fifteen; reckless, aggressive, and undisciplined.
Jyn Erso: This is a rebellion, isn't it? I rebel.
Jyn Erso: If we can make it to the ground, we'll take the next chance. And the next. On and on until we win... or the chances are spent.
Jyn Erso: There isn't much time. Every day they grow stronger.
Saw Gerrera: You can stand to see the Imperial flag reign across the galaxy?
Jyn Erso: It's not a problem if you don't look up.

Jyn Erso: I found it.
K-2SO: I find that answer vague and unconvincing.
Bodhi Rook: There's a planet-wide defensive shield with a single main entry gate. This shuttle should be equipped with an access code that allows us through.

Bodhi Rook: Then they shut the gate. And we're all annihilated in the cold, dark vacuum of space.
K-2SO: Not me... I can survive in space.
General Draven: You're currently calling youself Liana Hallik. Is that correct? Possession of unsanctioned weapons. Forgery of Imperial documents. Aggravated assault. Escape from custody. resisting arrest. Imagine if the Imperial authorities had found out who you really were, Jyn Erso. That is your given name, is it not? Jyn Erso, daughter of Galen Erso? A known Imperial collaborator in weapons development.
Jyn Erso: What is this?
Mon Mothma: It's a chance for you to make a fresh start. We think you might be able to help us. This is Captain Cassian Andor, Rebel Intelligence.
Cassian Andor: When was the last time you were in contact with your father?
Jyn Erso: 15 years ago.
Cassian Andor: Any idea where he's been all that time?
Jyn Erso: I'd like to think he's dead. Makes things easier.
Cassian Andor: Easier than what? That he's been a tool of the Imperial war machine?
Jyn Erso: I've never had the luxury of political opinions.
Cassian Andor: Really? When was your last contact with Saw Gerrera?
Jyn Erso: It's been a long time.
Cassian Andor: But he'll remember you, though. Wouldn't he? He might agree to meet you, if you came as a friend.
K-2SO: I'm surprised you're so concerned with my safety.
Jyn Erso: I'm not. I'm just worried they might miss you... and hit me.
K-2SO: [quietly, so Jyn can't hear] Doesn't sound so bad to me.
Jyn Erso: They call it the Death Star. But they have no idea... there's a way to defeat it.
Jyn Erso: [Answering to what chances the Rebellion has against the Death Star] What chance do we have? The question is "what choice." Run, hide, plead for mercy, scatter your forces. You give way to an enemy this evil with this much power and you condemn the galaxy to an eternity of submission. The time to fight is now!
Baze Malbus: You don't look happy.
Jyn Erso: They prefer to surrender.
Baze Malbus: And you?
Chirrut Îmwe: She wants to fight.
Bodhi Rook: So do I. We all do.
Chirrut Îmwe: The Force is strong.
Jyn Erso: I'm not sure four of us is quite enough.
Baze Malbus: How many do we need?
Jyn Erso: What are you talking about?
[he gestures to something behind her; turning around, she sees Cassian and a ragtag group of Rebels]
Cassian Andor: They were never gonna believe you.
Jyn Erso: I appreciate the support.
Cassian Andor: But I do. I believe you... We'd like to volunteer. Some of us... Well, most of us... we've all done terrible things on behalf of the Rebellion. Spies, saboteurs, assassins. Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion. And every time I walked away from something I wanted to forget, I told myself it was for a cause that I believed in... A cause that was worth it... Without that, we're lost. Everything we've done would have been for nothing... I couldn't face myself if I gave up now... None of us could.
Jyn Erso: The time to fight is now!
Jyn Erso: [referring to K-2SO] Maybe we should leave target practice behind.
K-2SO: I see the Council is sending you with us to Jedha.
Jyn Erso: Apparently so.
K-2SO: That is a bad idea. I think so, and so does Cassian. What do I know? My specialty is just strategic analysis.
Orson Krennic: Who are you?
Jyn Erso: You know who I am.
K-2SO: I can blend in. I'm an Imperial droid. The city is under Imperial occupation.
Jyn Erso: Half the people here wanna reprogram you. The other half wanna put a hole in your head.
Rebel Flight Controller: [over the radio] What's your call sign, pilot?
Bodhi Rook: Um...
Jyn Erso: We have to go.
Bodhi Rook: It's, um...
Jyn Erso: Say something. Come on.
Bodhi Rook: Rogue. *Rogue One*.
Rebel Flight Controller: Rogue One? There is no Rogue One!
K-2SO: Well, there is now.
Jyn Erso: You lied about why we came here and you lied about why you went up alone.
Cassian Andor: I had every chance to pull the trigger, but did I?
Cassian Andor: *Did* I?
Jyn Erso: You might as well have. My father was living proof and you put him at risk. Those were Alliance bombs that killed him.
Cassian Andor: I had orders. Orders that I disobeyed. But you wouldn't understand that.
Jyn Erso: Orders? When you know they're wrong?... You might as well be a Stormtrooper.
Cassian Andor: What do you know? We don't all have the luxury of deciding when and where we want to care about something. Suddenly the Rebellion is real for you. Some of us live it. I've been in this fight since I was *six* years old.
Cassian Andor: You're not the only one who lost everything. Some of us just decided to do something about it.
Jyn Erso: You can't talk your way around this.
Cassian Andor: I don't have to.
Cassian Andor: The temple's been destroyed, but she'll be there waiting. We'll give her your name and hope that gets us a meeting with Saw.
Jyn Erso: Hope?
Cassian Andor: Yeah. Rebellions are built on hope.
[walking around Jedha City looking for Saw Gerrera]
Jyn Erso: You seem awfully tense all of a sudden.
Cassian Andor: We have to hurry. This town is ready to blow.
Jyn Erso: What's with the Destroyer?
Cassian Andor: It's because of your old friend, Saw Gerrera. He's been attacking the cargo shipments.
Jyn Erso: What are they bringing in?
Cassian Andor: It's what are they taking out. Kyber crystal. All they can get. We wondered why they were stripping the temple. Now we know. It's the fuel for the weapon.
Jyn Erso: [searching for the Death Star plans] "Stardust." That's it.
Cassian Andor: How do you know that?
Jyn Erso: I know because it's me.
