Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) Poster

John Boyega: Finn



  • Han Solo : What was your job when you were based here?

    Finn : Sanitation.

    Han Solo : Sanitation? Then how do you know how to disable the shields?

    Finn : I don't. I'm just here to get Rey.

    Han Solo : People are counting on us. The galaxy is counting on us.

    Finn : Solo, we'll figure it out. We'll use the Force.

    Han Solo : That's not how the Force works!

  • Finn : [asking about Phasma]  What should we do with her?

    Han Solo : Is there a garbage chute... or trash compactor?

  • Han Solo : [BB-8 shows Han, Finn, and Rey the map to Luke Skywalker]  This map's not complete. It's just a piece. Ever since Luke disappeared, people have been looking for him.

    Rey : Why did he leave?

    Han Solo : He was training a new generation of Jedi. There was nobody else left to do it, so he took the burden on himself. Everything was going great, until... one boy, an apprentice, turned against him, destroyed it all. Luke felt responsible. He just walked away from everything.

    Finn : Do you know what happened to him?

    Han Solo : There were a lot of rumors. Stories. People who knew him best think he went looking for the first Jedi temple.

    Rey : [in awe]  The Jedi were real?

    Han Solo : I used to wonder about that myself. Thought it was a bunch of mumbo jumbo. A magical power holding together good and evil, the dark side and the light. Crazy thing is... it's true. The Force, the Jedi. All of it. It's all true.

  • Finn : What about that ship?

    Rey : That one's garbage

    [ship blows up] 

    Finn : The garbage will do

    [shows Millennium Falcon] 

  • Finn : Hey, Solo, I'm not sure what we're walking into here...

    Han Solo : Did you just call me Solo?

    Finn : Sorry. Han. Mr. Solo. You should know, I'm a big deal in the Resistance. Which puts a real target on my back. Are there any conspirators here? Like, First Order sympathizers?

    Han Solo : Listen, Big Deal. You got another problem. Women always figure out the truth. Always.

  • Finn : Can you fly a TIE Fighter?

    Poe Dameron : I can fly anything.

  • Finn : You said poisonous gas.

    Rey : I fixed that.

    Finn : Can you unfix it?

  • Finn : [while holding Phasma at gunpoint]  You remember me?

    Captain Phasma : FN-2187.

    Finn : Not anymore. The name's Finn and I'm in charge. I'm in charge now, Phasma. I'm in charge.

    Han Solo : [to Finn]  Bring it down. Bring it down.

  • Poe Dameron : Wha- why? Why are you helping me?

    Finn : Because it's the right thing to do.

    Poe Dameron : You need a pilot.

    Finn : [chagrined]  I need a pilot.

  • [Finn wields Luke Skywalker's lightsaber] 

    Kylo Ren : That lightsaber... It belongs to me.

    Finn : Come get it.

  • Finn : Han Solo, the Rebellion general?

    Rey : No, the smuggler!

    Finn : Wasn't he a war hero?

    Chewbacca : [shrugs his shoulders]  A-ah-nah.

  • Han Solo : You hurt Chewie, you're gonna deal with me!

    Finn : Hurt him? He almost killed me six times!

    [Chewbacca grabs his throat] 

    Finn : [in a weak voice]  Which is fine!

  • Finn : We came back for you.

    [Chewie says something] 

    Finn : What'd he say?

    Rey : That it was your idea.

    [Rey hugs Finn] 

    Rey : Thank you.

    Finn : How did you get away?

    Rey : I can't explain it. And you wouldn't believe it.

    Han Solo : Escape now, hug later.

  • Finn : [in the gunner's chair]  I can do this. I can do this.

    Rey : [in the pilot's chair]  I can do this. I can do this.

  • Finn : Okay. Stay calm. Stay calm.

    Poe Dameron : I am calm.

    Finn : I'm talking to myself.

  • Maz Kanata : [to Finn]  If you live long enough, you see the same eyes in different people. I'm looking at the eyes of a man who wants to run.

    Finn : You don't know a thing about me. Where I'm from. What I've seen. You don't know the First Order like I do. They'll slaughter us. We all need to run.

    Maz Kanata : Hmm.

  • Finn : [Referring to Chewbacca after Rey responds to his growl]  You can understand that thing?

    Han Solo : And "that thing" can understand you, too, so watch it.

  • Finn : I'm not who you think I am.

    Rey : Finn, what are you talking about?

    Finn : I'm not Resistance. I'm not a hero. I'm a stormtrooper. Like all of them, I was taken from a family I'll never know. And raised to do one thing. But my first battle, I made a choice. I wasn't gonna kill for them. So I ran. Right into you. And you looked at me like no one ever had. I was ashamed of what I was. But I'm done with the First Order. I'm never going back. Rey, come with me.

    Rey : Don't go.

    Finn : Take care of yourself. Please.

  • Finn : I need help with this giant hairy thing!

  • Finn : [whispers to BB-8]  All right, between us... I'm not with the Resistance, okay?

    [BB-8 backs away] 

    Finn : I'm just trying to get away from the First Order. But you tell us where the base is, I'll get you there first. Deal?

    [BB-8 tilts his head while thinking about it] 

    Finn : Droid, please!

  • Finn : [referring to Han]  Wasn't he a war hero?

    [Chewbacca shrugs and growls] 

  • Finn : Where are we going?

    Poe Dameron : We're going back to Jakku. That's where.

    Finn : No, no, no. We can't go back to Jakku. We need to get out of this system.

    Poe Dameron : I gotta get my droid before the First Order does.

    Finn : What, a droid?

    Poe Dameron : That's right. He's a BB unit, orange and white. One of a kind.

    Finn : I don't care what color he is! No droid can be that important.

    Poe Dameron : This one is, pal!

    Finn : We gotta get as far away from the First Order as we can. We go back to Jakku, we die.

    Poe Dameron : That droid has a map that leads straight to Luke Skywalker.

    Finn : Oh, you gotta be kidding me!

  • Rey : We need your help.

    Han Solo : My help?

    Rey : This droid has to get to the Resistance base as soon as possible.

    Finn : He's carrying a map to Luke Skywalker.

    [Han stops walking in surprise] 

    Finn : You are the Han Solo that fought with the Rebellion.

    [Han slowly turns to face Finn] 

    Finn : You know him.

    Han Solo : Yeah. I knew him. I knew Luke.

  • Han Solo : Where'd you get this ship?

    Rey : Niima Outpost.

    Han Solo : Jakku? That junkyard?

    Finn : Thank you! Junkyard.

    Han Solo : [to Chewbacca]  Told you we should have double-checked the Western Reaches.

  • [after they escape from Jakku on the Falcon both speaking fast and almost talking at the same time] 

    Rey : Nice shooting.

    Finn : Now that was some flying.

    Rey : Thanks.

    Finn : How did you do that?

    Rey : I don't know.

    Finn : No one trained you?

    Rey : I've flown some ships, but I've never left the planet.

    Finn : No one? That was amazing.

    Rey : Your last shot was dead on.

    Finn : You set me up for it.

    Rey : You got him with one blast!

    Finn : That was pretty good.

    Rey : It was perfect.

  • [as the blast door closes on one the Rathtar's tentacles freeing Finn] 

    Finn : It had me! But the door...

    Rey : That was lucky.

  • Captain Phasma : You can't be so stupid as to think this will be easy. My troops will storm this block and kill you all.

    Finn : I disagree. What do we do with her?

    Han Solo : Is there a garbage chute? Trash compactor?

    Finn : Yeah, there is.

  • Poe Dameron : What's your name?

    Finn : FN-2187.


    Finn : That's the only name they ever gave me.

    Poe Dameron : Well, I'm not going to call you that. Let's see... FN... I'm going to call you Finn. How about that

    Finn : Yeah, Finn. I like that.

  • Rey : So you're with the Resistance?

    Finn : [pauses while thinking]  Obviously. Yes, I am. I'm with the Resistance, yeah.


    Finn : I am with the Resistance.

    Rey : I've never met a Resistance fighter before.

    Finn : Well, this is what we look like. Some of us. Others look different.

    Rey : BB-8 says he's on a secret mission. He has to get back to your base.

    Finn : Apparently, he has a map that leads to Luke Skywalker and everyone's after it.

    Rey : [whispers]  Luke Skywalker? I thought he was a myth.

  • Han Solo : You think it was luck that Chewie and I found the Falcon? If we can find it on our scanners, the First Order's not far behind. Wanna get BB-8 to the Resistance? Maz Kanata's our best bet.

    Finn : We can trust her, right?

    Han Solo : Relax, kid. She's run this watering hole for a thousand years. Maz is a bit of an acquired taste, so let me do the talking. And whatever you do, don't stare.

    Rey , Finn : At what?

    Han Solo : Any of it.

  • Finn : I can disable the shields, but I have to be there. On the planet.

    Han Solo : [looking at Chewie]  We'll get you there.

    Leia : Han, how?

    Han Solo : If I told you, you wouldn't like it.

  • Poe Dameron : That's my jacket.

    Finn : Oh...

    Poe Dameron : No, no, no, no. Keep it. It suits you. You're a good man, Finn.

  • Han Solo : Oh, don't tell me a Rathtar's gotten loose.

    Finn : Wait, what? Did you just say Rathtars? Hey! You're not hauling Rathtars on this freighter, are you?

    Han Solo : I'm hauling Rathtars. Oh, great. It's the Guavian Death Gang. Must have tracked us from Nantoon.

    Rey : What's a Rathtar?

    Han Solo : They're big and they're dangerous.

    Finn : You ever heard of the Trillia Massacre?

    Rey : No.

    Finn : Good.

  • Finn : [flying to Starkiller Base]  How are we getting in?

    Han Solo : Their shields have a fractional refresh rate. Keeps anything traveling slower than lightspeed from getting through.

    Finn : We're making our landing approach at lightspeed?

  • Rey : I don't know your name.

    Finn : Finn, what's yours?

    Rey : I'm Rey.


  • Poe Dameron : [escaping with Finn in a TIE fighter]  I've always wanted to fly one of these things. Can you shoot?

    Finn : Blasters, I can.

    Poe Dameron : Okay, same principle. Use the toggle on the left to switch between missiles, cannons, and mag pulse. Use the sight on the right to aim, triggers to fire.

    Finn : This is very complicated.

  • Finn : That's one hell of a pilot!

  • Han Solo : Finn, be careful with those. They're explosives.

    Finn : Now you tell me?

  • [deperatly trying to find water in town after traveling in the desert] 

    Finn : Water. Water.

    Jakku Merchant : [in thick accent]  No water.

    Finn : Water.

    [another Merchant grunts] 

    Finn : Is there water?

    [another Merchange speaks in alien dialect] 

  • Finn : What about you?

    Rey : I've got to get back to Jakku.

    Finn : Back to Jak-! Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku?

  • Rey : Get ready!

    Finn : Okay. For what? Are we really doing this?

  • Finn : Rey, you're a pilot You can fly anywhere. Why go back? You got a family? You got a boyfriend? A cute boyfriend?

    Rey : None of your business, that's why!

  • Rey : Do they have blasters?

    Finn : A lot of them.

  • Rey : This was a mistake.

    Finn : Huge!

  • Rey : [running down a corridor]  What do they look like?

    Finn : [turns a corner and comes face-to-face with a Rathtar]  They look like that!

  • Finn : What are you doing? Solo, what is she doing?

    Han Solo : I don't know; but, it ain't good.

  • Han Solo : We disable the shields. Can you work there? What have you got?

    Finn : I can do it.

    Han Solo : I like this guy.

    Finn : I can disable the shields, but, I have to be there, on the planet.

    Han Solo : We'll get you there.

    Leia : Han, how?

    Han Solo : If I told you, you wouldn't like it.
