Imagine if Rogue One survived and kept on fighting for the rebellion together, so one day they end up in this shady bar in the middle of nowhere. When they get the tab, it’s a lot higher than they expect, so they’re freaking out and trying to figure out what to do. Chirrut waits for them all to quiet down before he says ‘Don’t worry, Baze and I can handle this’, and Baze just nods before motioning for the bartender.
So Chirrut says their tab is way too high, and could you please consider going down? But of course the bartender is like ‘the prices are set’, so Chirrut turns to face Baze and they start speaking in Mandarin. At first it sounds civil, but then they both raise their voices and sound like they’re fighting. Are they fighting? No, of course not. They’re complimenting each other in increasingly sappy ways. But the only one who knows that is Bodhi, who managed to pick up a bit of Mandarin as a pilot, and he’s sitting there quietly getting a bit embarrassed at these two guys complimenting each other rather aggressively, like:
And it keeps going like that for awhile, eventually everyone in the bar is staring and the bartender is like ‘Ok, ok, I’ll cut the tab! Just please stop making a scene!’ and the instant he says that Chirrut and Baze go back to their usual countenances and Chirrut thanks him with a sweet little smile.
When they walk out, the other members of Rogue One ask what the hell they could have possibly been saying, were these two SERIOUSLY having a row in there, should they be concerned? But Chirrut just smiles and says ‘Nothing that needs to be repeated was said’ while Baze claps Bodhi on the shoulder, who laughs kind of nervously because they know Bodhi is the only one who’s in on their secret. Also, sorry if the grammar is wrong, my Chinese is still rather shaky.
