    When I was watching ESB the other night, Vader was talking to the bounty hunters aboard a Star Destroyer. A captain (below) make a statement to the effect, "bounty hunters - we don't need that scum." Then, standing above, a yellowish, lizard looking bounty hunter whose name I think is "Bossk" said something to the admiral. What is it he said? I couldn't make it out - no matter how many times I listened to it. Maybe it wasn't English.

    I watched TESB last night and I'm pretty sure Bossk says, 'best of health'.

    The actor playing Bossk dutifully tried to speak his line but phlegm from the cream in his morning coffee made him flub it and so he growled instead. Rather than waste precious time on a re-take for what what essentially a throwaway scene, director Irvin Kirshner decided to leave it in.

    True lie!

    Yes, his name is Bossk and no, he did not say anything; just growled at the captain and his lame remark.

    UPDATE: I watched the subtitles on my DVD and it is translated to:

    Captain: "Bounty Hunters - We don't need that scum."

    Peon: "Yes sir"

    Bossk (english translation): "That's not what your wife said to me in bed this morning."

    That's why the captain runs off... to find his wife.
