Lady Proxima: "I trusted you with a simple task. And all I’m hearing is more excuses. There must be consequences for disobedience or else you never learn"
There are others in the book of Deuteronomy, but this is a sampling....
Han Solo: "I said: next time somebody hits me, I hit them back."
What's your name, son?
Who are your people?
I don't have people. I'm alone.
Proceed to transport ID 83 for the Naval Academy at Carida. Good luck, Han Solo.
וא"ר יצחק ד' דברים מקרעין גזר דינו של אדם אלו הן צדקה צעקה שינוי השם ושינוי מעשה
צדקה דכתיב (משלי י, ב) וצדקה תציל ממות
צעקה דכתיב (תהלים קז, כח) ויצעקו אל ה' בצר להם וממצוקותיהם יוציאם שינוי השם דכתיב (בראשית יז, טו) שרי אשתך לא תקרא את שמה שרי כי שרה שמה וכתיב וברכתי אותה וגם נתתי ממנה לך בן שינוי מעשה דכתיב (יונה ג, י) וירא האלהים את מעשיהם וכתיב (יונה ג, י) וינחם האלהים על הרעה אשר דבר לעשות להם ולא עשה וי"א אף שינוי מקום דכתיב (בראשית יב, א) ויאמר ה' אל אברם לך לך מארצך והדר ואעשך לגוי גדול ואידך ההוא זכותא דא"י הוא דאהניא ליה
And Rabbi Yitzḥak said: "A person’s sentence is torn up on account of four types of actions. These are: Giving charity, crying out in prayer, a change of one’s name, and a change of one’s deeds."
Charity, as it is written: “And charity delivers from death” (Proverbs 10:2); crying out in prayer, as it is written: “Then they cry to the Lord in their trouble, and He brings them out of their distresses” (Psalms 107:28); a change of one’s name, as it is written: “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall her name be” (Genesis 17:15), and it is written there: “And I will bless her, and I will also give you a son from her” (Genesis 17:16); a change of one’s deeds for the better, as it is written: “And God saw their deeds” (Jonah 3:10), and it is written there: “And God repented of the evil, which He had said He would do to them, and He did not do it” (Jonah 3:10).
And some say: "Also, a change of one’s place", as it is written: “And the Lord said to Abram: Go you out of your county” (Genesis 12:1), and afterward it is written: “And I will make of you a great nation” (Genesis 12: 2).
And the other one, i.e., Rabbi Yitzḥak, who does not include a change of residence in his list, holds that in the case of Abram, it was the merit and sanctity of Eretz Yisrael that helped him become the father of a great nation.
Bringing Peace and Tranquility
Just wondering what our objective is, Lieutenant.
Bring peace and prosperity to the galaxy, install a regime loyal to the Emperor, and eradicate the hostiles.
It's their planet, we're the hostiles.
You got a problem, trooper?
No problem, sir.
So what's your name, anyway?
All right, well, you're gonna need a nickname, 'cause I ain't saying that every time.
It is taught: Rabbi Yose said: "In all my days, I did not call my wife: 'My wife', nor my ox: 'My ox'. Rather, I called my wife: 'My home', and I called my ox: 'My field'."
A repeater taught before Rav Naḥman bar Yitzḥak: Anyone who humiliates another in public, it is as though he were spilling blood.
He said to him: "You have spoken well, as we see that the red leaves and pallor comes.
Abaye said to Rav Dimi: "In the West, i.e., Eretz Yisrael, with regard to what mitzva are they vigilant?"
Rav Dimi said to him: "In refraining from humiliating others, as Rabbi Ḥanina says: 'Everyone descends to Gehenna except for three.'"
Does it enter your mind that everyone descends to Gehenna? Rather, say: Anyone who descends to Gehenna ultimately ascends, except for three who descend and do not ascend, and these are they: One who engages in intercourse with a married woman, and one who humiliates another in public; and one who calls another a derogatory name.
One who calls another a derogatory name: That is identical to one who shames him; why are they listed separately? Although the victim grew accustomed to being called that name in place of his name, and he is no longer humiliated by being called that name, since the intent was to insult him, the perpetrator’s punishment is severe.
Having Free Time
I still got some debts to pay before I can head back to Glee Anselm and get into the valachord.
Having a Couple of Drinks
What should we drink to?
Let's drink two and see where it goes.
כוס אחד יפה לאשה
שנים ניוול הוא
שלשה תובעת בפה
ארבעה אפילו חמור תובעת בשוק ואינה מקפדת
It was taught:
One cup of wine is good for a woman;
two is a disgrace;
three: she will verbally demand marital relations;
four: she will solicit even a donkey in the marketplace, and she would not care
(ג) וְאֵלּוּ הֵן הַפְּסוּלִין, הַמְשַׂחֵק בְּקֻבְיָא, וְהַמַּלְוֶה בְרִבִּית, וּמַפְרִיחֵי יוֹנִים, וְסוֹחֲרֵי שְׁבִיעִית. אָמַר רַבִּי שִׁמְעוֹן, בִּתְחִלָּה הָיוּ קוֹרִין אוֹתָן אוֹסְפֵי שְׁבִיעִית, מִשֶּׁרַבּוּ הָאַנָּסִין, חָזְרוּ לִקְרוֹתָן סוֹחֲרֵי שְׁבִיעִית. אָמַר רַבִּי יְהוּדָה, אֵימָתַי, בִּזְמַן שֶׁאֵין לָהֶם אֻמָּנוּת אֶלָּא הִיא, אֲבָל יֵשׁ לָהֶן אֻמָּנוּת שֶׁלֹּא הִיא, כְּשֵׁרִין:
And these are they which are not qualified [to be witnesses or judges]: A dice player, a usurer, pigeon racers, or traffickers in Seventh Year produce.
one who plays with dice for money, what is he doing that disqualifies him from bearing witness?
Rami bar Ḥama says: He is disqualified because gambling is a transaction with inconclusive consent [asmakhta], as one who gambles does not have conclusive consent to pay when he loses since he plays under the assumption that he will win. And as an asmakhta does not effect acquisition, the one who wins takes money that is not legally his, and is considered a robber.
Rav Sheshet says: "Any case like this is not an asmakhta. In a game of dice both sides realize that they might lose, and consent at the outset to pay if that happens. Rather, those who play dice are disqualified because they are not involved in settling the world, i.e., in productive occupations that demand hard work. Since they do not realize the effort required of most people to earn a living they might not be scrupulous about other people’s money, and their testimony cannot be relied upon."
HAN: Looks like you're having a good day.
LANDO: I'm a lucky guy.
אִיתְּמַר, רַבִּי חֲנִינָא אוֹמֵר: מַזָּל מַחְכִּים, מַזָּל מַעֲשִׁיר, וְיֵשׁ מַזָּל לְיִשְׂרָאֵל. רַבִּי יוֹחָנָן אָמַר: אֵין מַזָּל לְיִשְׂרָאֵל.

It was stated: Rabbi Ḥanina says: "A constellation makes one wise and a constellation makes one wealthy, and there is a constellation for the Jewish people."
Rabbi Yoḥanan said: "There is no constellation for the Jewish people."
And Rabbi Yoḥanan follows his own reasoning, as Rabbi Yoḥanan said: "Whence is it that there is no constellation for the Jewish people? As it is stated: 'Thus said the Lord: Learn not the way of the nations, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the nations are dismayed at them' (Jeremiah 10:2). The nations will be dismayed by them, but not the Jewish people."
And even Rav opines there is no constellation for the Jewish people, as Rav Yehudah said: "Rav said: 'Whence is it that there is no constellation for the Jewish people? As it is stated with regard to Abraham: “And He brought him outside, and said: Look now toward heaven, and count the stars, if you are able to count them; and He said unto him: So shall your offspring be” (Genesis 15:5). The Sages derived from this that Abraham said before the Holy One, Blessed be He: Master of the Universe, “Behold, You have given me no offspring, and one born in my house is to be my heir” (Genesis 15:3). The Holy One, Blessed be He, said to him: No. “And, behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying: This man shall not be your heir; rather, one that will come forth from your own innards shall be your heir” (Genesis 15:4).'"
Not Trusting People
Assume everyone will betray you and you will never be disappointed.
Sounds like a lonely way to live.
It's the only way.
אַל תִּפְרֹשׁ מִן הַצִּבּוּר,
וְאַל תַּאֲמִין בְּעַצְמְךָ עַד יוֹם מוֹתְךָ,
וְאַל תָּדִין אֶת חֲבֵרְךָ עַד שֶׁתַּגִּיעַ לִמְקוֹמוֹ,
וְאַל תֹּאמַר דָּבָר שֶׁאִי אֶפְשָׁר לִשְׁמֹעַ, שֶׁסּוֹפוֹ לְהִשָּׁמַע.
"Do not separate yourself from the community,
Do not trust in yourself until the day of your death,
Do not judge your fellow man until you have reached his place.
Do not say something that cannot be understood [trusting] that in the end it will be understood."
They're marauders.They don't care about anybody. All they know how to do is kill.

Rabbi Akiva was walking along the road and came to a certain city, he inquired about lodging and they did not give him any. He said: Everything that God does, He does for the best. He went and slept in a field, and he had with him a rooster, a donkey and a candle. A gust of wind came and extinguished the candle; a cat came and ate the rooster; and a lion came and ate the donkey. He said: Everything that God does, He does for the best. That night, an army came and took the city into captivity. It turned out that Rabbi Akiva alone, who was not in the city and had no lit candle, noisy rooster or donkey to give away his location, was saved. He said to them: Didn’t I tell you? Everything that God does, He does for the best.
Cutting Out Tongues
When they returned demanding their tribute, the people shouted back in one voice, "No more!" The mercenaries didn't like the sound of that, so they cut off the tongue of every last man, woman, and child.
Do you know what that pack of animals became?
Crimson Dawn and the rest of the five Syndicates have committed unspeakable crimes across the galaxy.
Qi'ra: Gone. Beckett took it. Slaughtered the others. I alone survived.
Maul: One man couldn't have done this alone.
Qi'ra: I wasn't there. But if I had been, perhaps I could've saved him.
