Dr. Evazan: [explaining] He doesn’t like you.
Dr. Evazan: [grabbing Luke] I don’t like you either. You just watch yourself. We’re wanted men. I have the death sentence on twelve systems.
Luke: I’ll be careful.
Dr. Evazan: You’ll be dead!
Obi-Wan: [intervening] This little one’s not worth the effort. Come, let me get you something.
Dr. Evazan shoves Luke across the room and pulls out a blaster.
Bartender: No blasters! No blasters!
Obi-Wan ignites his lightsaber, severing Ponda Baba’s arm.
