Episode III: "Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is."

these are my favorite quotes from the classic trilogy...one thing's for sure. Hans Solo has the best lines in the films. :)

(disclaimer: i did NOT take notes while watching the films. my geekiness has not transcended that level...yet - haha. all quotes from Star Wars Episodes 4-6 are courtesy of www.imdb.com. oh, and an additional warning: this is a looong read.)

Star Wars: A New Hope (1977)

Han Solo: Well, you can forget your troubles with those Imperial slugs. I told you I'd outrun 'em.

[Nobody is listening]

Han Solo: Don't everyone thank me at once.

* * *

Luke: I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you.

Princess Leia: You're who?

* * *

C-3PO: We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life.

* * *

Han Solo: Han Solo. I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me you're lookin' for passage to the Alderaan system?

Obi-Wan: Yes indeed, if it's a fast ship.

Han Solo: Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?

* * *

C-3PO: Listen to them, they're dying, R2. Curse my metal body. I wasn't fast enough. It's all my fault. My poor master.

* * *

C-3PO: Don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease.

* * *

C-3PO: We're doomed.

* * *

Han Solo: Wonderful girl. Either I'm going to kill her or I'm beginning to like her.

* * *

Han Solo: Damn fool, I knew you were going to say that.

Obi-Wan: Who's the more foolish: The fool, or the fool who follows him?

* * *

Princess Leia: Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

* * *

Han Solo: Get in there you big furry oaf. I don't care what you smell.

* * *

Han Solo: This is not going to work.

Luke: Why didn't you say so before?

Han Solo: I did say so before.

* * *

Han Solo: Look, Your Worshipfulness, let's get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.

Princess Leia: It's a wonder you're still alive.

[Pushing past Chewbacca] Princess Leia: Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?

Han Solo: No reward is worth this.

* * *

[Princess Leia gets her first look at the Millennium Falcon]

Princess Leia: You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought.

* * *

[Luke blows up his first TIE fighter] Luke: Got 'im! I got 'im!

Han Solo: Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

* * *

[after a successful rescue of Princess Leia]

Luke: So, what do you think of her, Han?

Han Solo: I'm tryin' not to, kid.

Luke: [sotto voice] Good.

Han Solo: [baiting him] Still, she's got a lot of spirit. I don't know, whaddya think? You think a princess and a guy like me...

Luke: [quickly] No.

* * *

[R2-D2 and Chewbacca are playing the holographic game aboard the Millennium Falcon]

Chewbacca: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh

C-3PO: He made a fair move. Screaming about it can't help you.

Han Solo: Let him have it. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.

C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.

Han Solo: That's 'cause droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.

Chewbacca: Grrf.

C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the Wookiee win.

* * *

Darth Vader: I've been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I met you I was but the learner. Now, *I* am the master.

Obi-Wan: Only a master of evil, Darth.

[lightsabers clash]

* * *

Han Solo: Not a bad bit of rescuing, huh? You know, sometimes I amaze even myself.

Princess Leia: That doesn't sound too hard.

* * *

Darth Vader: Your powers are weak, old man.

Obi-Wan: You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

* * *

Obi-Wan: Use the Force, Luke.

* * *

Luke: You know, between his howling and you blasting everything in sight, it's a wonder the whole station doesn't know we're here.

Han Solo: Bring 'em on, I'd prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around.

* * *

Han Solo: Where did you dig up that old fossil?

Luke: Ben is a great man.

Han Solo: Yeah, great at getting us into trouble.

* * *

Princess Leia: Your friend is quite a mercenary. I wonder if he really cares about anything... or anybody.

Luke: I care.

* * *

C-3PO: Is there anything I can do?

Luke: Not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or teleport me off this rock.

* * *

Princess Leia: Into the garbage chute, flyboy.

* * *

C-3PO: Master Luke, sir. Pardon me for asking, but what should R2 and I do if we're discovered here?

Luke: Lock the door.

Han Solo: And hope they don't have blasters.

C-3PO: That isn't very reassuring.

* * *

Stormtrooper: Let me see your identification.

Obi-Wan: [influencing the stormtrooper's mind] You don't need to see his identification.

Stormtrooper: We don't need to see his identification.

Obi-Wan: These aren't the droids you're looking for.

Stormtrooper: These aren't the droids we're looking for.

Obi-Wan: He can go about his business.

Stormtrooper: You can go about your business.

Obi-Wan: Move along.

Stormtrooper: Move along... move along.

* * *

Luke: It's a good thing you have these compartments.

Han Solo: Yeah, I use them for smuggling. I'd never thought I'd be smuggling myself in them.

* * *

[as the garbage compactor closes in] Han Solo: One thing's for sure, we're all gonna be a lot thinner.

* * *

C-3PO: I've just about had enough of you. Go that way. You'll be malfunctioning within a day, you near-sighted scrap pile. And don't let me catch you following me begging for help because you won't get it.

* * *

Princess Leia: [to Han] : I knew there was more to you than money!

* * *

[Han, Luke, Leia and Chewie land in the trash compactor]

Han Solo: What an incredible smell you've discovered! Let's get out of here! Get away from there...

Luke: No! Wait!

[Han draws his laser pistol and fires at the hatch. The laser bolt ricochets wildly around the small room. Everyone dives for cover in the garbage as the bolt finally explodes]

Luke: Will you forget it? I already tried it. It's magnetically sealed!

Princess Leia: Put that thing away, you're gonna get us all killed!

Han Solo: Absolutely, Your Worship. Look, I had everything under control until you led us down here! It's not going to take them long to figure out what happened to us.

Princess Leia: It could've been worse.

[Garbage creature growls]

Han Solo: It's worse.

* * *

[Han is chasing some Stormtroopers]

Princess Leia: He certainly has courage...

Luke: Yeah, but what good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on!

[Luke and Leia run off in the opposite direction]

* * *

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

Yoda: Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away... to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was. Hmm? What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless.

* * *

Princess Leia: Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder.

Han Solo: Who's scruffy-looking?

* * *

C-3PO: Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.

Han Solo: Never tell me the odds.

* * *

Yoda: You must unlearn what you have learned.

* * *

Luke: I want my lamp back. I'm gonna need it to get out of this slimy mudhole.

Yoda: Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is.

* * *

[a tremor knocks Leia into Solo's arms]

Princess Leia: Let go.

Han Solo: Shh.

Princess Leia: Let go, please.

Han Solo: Don't get excited.

Princess Leia: Captain, being held by you isn't quite enough to get me excited.

Han Solo: Sorry sweetheart. I haven't got time for anything else.

* * *

[Luke can't levitate his X-Wing out of the bog] Luke: I can't. It's too big.

Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

* * *

Han Solo: Afraid I was gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?

Princess Leia: I'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee.

Han Solo: I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss.

* * *

Han Solo: Well Princess, it looks like you managed to keep me here a while longer.

Princess Leia: I had nothing to do with it. General Rieekan thinks it's dangerous for anyone to leave the system until they've activated the energy shield.

Han Solo: That's a good story. I think you just can't bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight.

Princess Leia: I don't know where you get your delusions, laser brain.

[Chewbacca laughs]

Han Solo: Laugh it up, fuzzball.

* * *

C-3PO: Artoo says that the chances of survival are 725 to 1. Actually Artoo has been known to make mistakes... from time to time... Oh dear...

* * *

Luke: All right, I'll give it a try.

Yoda: No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

* * *

[Using the Force, Yoda effortlessly frees the X-Wing from the bog]

Luke: I don't, I don't believe it.

Yoda: That is why you fail.

* * *

Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.

Luke: He told me enough. He told me you killed him.

Darth Vader: No. I am your father.

Luke: No. That's not true. That's impossible.

Darth Vader: Search your feelings you know it to be true.

Luke: Nooooo. Nooooo.

* * *

Princess Leia: I love you.

Han Solo: I know.

* * *

[heading into a cave on a large asteroid] Princess Leia: I hope you know what you're doing.

Han Solo: Yeah, me too.

* * *

[Han reveals his clever plan of escape]

Princess Leia: You have your moments. Not many of them, but you do have them.

* * *

Princess Leia: You're not actually going IN to an asteroid field?

Han Solo: They'd be crazy to follow us, wouldn't they?

* * *

[Amid the violence of colliding asteroids]

Princess Leia: [to Han Solo] You don't have to do this to impress me.

* * *

[the Millennium Falcon, under siege, won't start]

Princess Leia: Would it help if I got out and pushed?

* * *

Han Solo: Hey, Your Worship, I'm only trying to help.

Princess Leia: Would you please stop calling me that?

Han Solo: Sure, Leia.

Princess Leia: Oh, you make it so difficult sometimes.

Han Solo: I do, I really do. You could be a little nicer, though. Come on, admit it. Sometimes you think I'm all right.

Princess Leia: Occasionally maybe... when you aren't acting like a scoundrel.

Han Solo: [laughs] Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.

[Han takes her hand and starts to massage it]

* * *

Princess Leia: The Empire may still be out there. I don't think it's wise to...

Han Solo: No time to discuss this as a committee.

Princess Leia: I am not a committee.

C-3PO: [in the background, falling over] Ahhhhh.

* * *

Han Solo: I have no time to discuss this with the Committee!

Princess Leia: I AM NOT A COMMITTEE!

* * *

[after R2-D2 gets fried] C-3PO: Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

* * *

[Chewbacca is fixing C-3PO] C-3PO: Oh, yes, that's much better... Something's not right, because now I can't see. Oh, oh, yes, that's much better. Wait... wait. Oh, my. What have you done? I'm BACKWARDS. You flea-bitten furball. Only an overgrown mop-head like you would be stupid enough to...

* * *

[R2 is trying to open the door, he beeps] C-3PO: No. We're not interested in the hyperdrive on the Millenium Falcon, it's fixed. Just open the door, you stupid lug.

[He opens the door]

C-3PO: I never doubted him for a second. Wonderful.

* * *

[after R2D2 is spit out by a swamp creature on Dagobah - the line is changed in the Special Edition]

Luke: You're lucky you don't taste very good.

* * *

C-3PO: Don't worry about Master Luke. I'm sure he'll be all right. He's quite clever, you know... for a human being.

* * *

[Han has decided to go searching for Luke]

Echo Base Officer: You'll freeze to death before you reach the first marker!

Han Solo: Then I'll see you in Hell!

* * *

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983)

C-3PO: What could possibly have come over Master Luke? Is it something I did? He never expressed any unhappiness with my work.

* * *

Luke: Search your feelings, Father, you can't do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate.

Darth Vader: It is too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.

Luke: Then my father is truly dead.

* * *

Luke: I'm endangering the mission. I shouldn't have come.

Han Solo: It's your imagination, kid. Come on. Let's keep a little optimism here.

* * *

Han Solo: Chewie and I will check it out, you two stay here.

Luke: Quietly. There may be more of them out there.

Han Solo: Hey, it's me.

* * *

Han Solo: I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big light blur.

Luke: There's nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.

Han Solo: You're going to die here you know.convenient.

* * *

C-3PO: I do believe they think I am some kind of god.

Han Solo: Well, why don't you use your divine influence and get us out of this?

C-3PO: I beg your pardon General Solo, but that just wouldn't be proper.

Han Solo: Proper?

C-3PO: It's against my programming to impersonate a deity.

* * *

Luke: If I don't make it back, you're the only hope for the Alliance.

Princess Leia: Luke, don't talk that way. You have a power I don't understand and could never have.

Luke: You're wrong, Leia. You have that power too. In time you'll learn to use it as I have. The Force runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And... my sister has it. Yes. It's you, Leia.

Princess Leia: I know. Somehow, I've always known.

* * *

Darth Vader: Luke help me take this mask off.

Luke: But you'll die.

Darth Vader: Nothing can stop that now. Just for once let me look on you with my own eyes.

[Luke takes off the mask one piece at a time]

Anakin: Now go my son. Leave me.

Luke: No, you're coming with me. I'll not leave you here. I've got to save you

Anakin: You already have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister, you were right.

[Anakin slumps down in death]

Luke: Father, I won't leave you.

* * *

Han Solo: I'm sure Luke wasn't on that thing when it blew.

Princess Leia: He wasn't. I can feel it.

Han Solo: You love him, [pause]

Han Solo: don't you?

Princess Leia: Yes.

Han Solo: All right. I understand. Fine. When he comes back, I won't get in the way.

Princess Leia: It's not like that at all.

[whispering] Princess Leia: He's my brother.

* * *

C-3PO: His high exaltedness, the Great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately.

Han Solo: Good, I hate long waits.

C-3PO: You will therefore be taken to the Dune Sea, and cast into the pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all-powerful Sarlaac.

Han Solo: Doesn't sound so bad.

C-3PO: In his belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years.

Han Solo: On second thought, let's pass on that, huh?

* * *

Yoda: That face you make... look I so old to young eyes?

Luke: No. Of course not.

Yoda: I do. Yes, I do. Sicker I become, old and weak... When nine hundred years old YOU reach, look as good YOU will not, hmm?

* * *

C-3PO: I'm very embarrassed, General Solo, but it seems you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

* * *

Princess Leia: It only takes one to sound the alarm.

Han Solo: Then we'll do it real quiet-like.

* * *

Han Solo: Together again.

Luke: Wouldn't miss it.

Han Solo: How we doin'?

Luke: Same as always.

Han Solo: That bad, huh?

* * *

Han Solo: Who are you?

Princess Leia: Someone who loves you.

* * *

C-3PO: Wonderful. We are now a part of the tribe.

[an Ewok hugs Han]

Han Solo: Just what I always wanted.

* * *

[Han and Chewbacca are reunited]

Han Solo: Chewie! I can't see, pal. What's going on? Luke? Luke's crazy! He can't even take care of himself, much less rescue anybody. A Jedi Knight? I'm out of it for a little while, and everyone gets delusions of grandieur!

* * *

Luke: Soon I'll be dead, and you with me.

The Emperor: [laughing] Perhaps you refer to the emminent attack of your rebel fleet? Yes, I assure you, we are quite safe from your friends here.

Luke: Your overconfidence is your weakness.

The Emperor: Your faith in your friends is yours.

* * *

C-3PO: [to R2D2] If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short circuit.
