star wars, nothing but star wars:
quips, quotes, sounds

Been a busy day at work and now we're headed out to baseball (where DJ will be testing the limits of reality and see if he can get The Force to help him with his swing). I don't want to slack in my Star Wars geek duty, though.

First, a special treat for you:

Bill Murray: Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars....(download)

And one of my favorites: Supernova doing Chewbacca (What a Wookiee) from Clerks (download)

Don't forget the vintage SW radio ads here, and all the SW posts gathered in one place here, especially the Carnival of the Force which may or may not be featured on CNN at some point today, so I hear.

And, I can't believe that in nearly five years of this site and all the lists I've made and movie quote posts I've written that I never did this:

Favorite Star Wars quotes, any of the movies. The floor is yours.

"I know." -Han Solo

Gee, where to begin:

"What a piece of junk!"
"She'll make point five past lightspeed."

"This is no cave."

"C3PO, tell them if they do not do as you say, you'll become angry and use your magic."

"Great, I got Tylochean Sand Crabs from a Princess, just great"
Han Solo,
'Return of the Jedi' Outtake - Director's Cut/Easter Egg

"Laugh it up, fuzz ball!"
"You have failed me for the last time!"
"I've forgotten how much I hate space travel!"
"You don't need to see his identification...these aren't the droids you're looking for..."

"I'd rather kiss a Wookie".
"I can arrange that".

"Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy."

"Sorry about the mess."
"I find your lack of faith disturbing."
"Never tell me the odds."

"We're fine...We're all fine, here, now...Thank you. How are you?"

I don't know if this is true or not, but as I heard it there were a lot of plot leaks for Episode IV. Hamil, Fisher and Ford had one or two each, but most of them were traced to the guy who did Vader's body. So, since they realized he was only needed for blocking, not dialogue, the actual spoken words on the catwalk scene in Empire was:

Vader: "Luke, your mother wears combat boots!"
Luke: "Nooooooo! It's not the truth!"

I'd fact check it, but I would hate to ruin a perfectly good urban legend...

"But I was going to Toshi station to pick up some power converters!"

"I don't like sand."

"Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?"

"Evacuate? In our moment of triumph?"

"I thought the battle was supposed to take place far from here. This is too close."

"Why do I get the feeling that you're going to be the death of me?"

"That's impossible, even for a computer."

"Hey! Carrie!" (famous blooper uttered by Mark Hamil, saying Carrie Fisher's real name instead of calling her Leia (right after Luke blows up the Death Star))

"Only Imperial Stormtroopers are this precise."

"And I thought they smelled bad... on the outside."

"It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs." (I only like this line because it makes NO sense)

"Who's scruffy lookin?"

OK, that's it for now. I could go on forever.

Idea for next list: "Least fave SW quotes." Yousa thinka yousa people gunna die?, anyone? hahahah

"I've got a bad feeling about this...."

"It's not my fault!"

"What a wonderful SMELL you've discovered."

"Try not! Do! Or do not. There is no try."

And for the apocryphal list (I actually read this in Fantastic Films or Starlog when I was a kid), in Empire, David Prowse allegedly said on the set, during a take, "Hemmorhoids do not concern me, Admiral--I want to shit."

The obvious:

Vader: Obi-Wan never told you what happened to you father.

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

Vader: No. I am your father.

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

Vader: Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

Does anything said by Darth Vader count? Okay, more specific.

"I find your lack of faith disturbing."
"The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am."
"You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander. I am here to put you back on schedule."

Non-Vader quotes.

"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side."
"Never tell me the odds!"
"Let the wookie win."

"It's a trap!"

Runners up:

"That's no moon... that's a space station!"

"The force is strong in this one!"

"Look, your Worshipfulness, I take orders from one person: me!"
"It's a wonder you're still alive."

(Just for the word "Worshipfulness")

"I'm out of it for a little while and everybody gets delusions of grandeur."

"I've been waiting for this for a long time, my little... green.. friend!"

"I'll be careful."
"You'll be DEAD!"

"Have you seen the new X-38 yet?"
"Yeah, one of the tech guys was telling me about it. I hear it's... quite the thing to see. What was that?!"

Han: "...and we just float away."

Leia: "...with the rest of the garbage."


C3PO: "The damage doesn't look as bad from out here."


C3PO: "Don't you call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease."


Han: "It's not wise to upset a Wookie."

C3PO: "But sir, no one worries about upsetting a droid."

Han: "That's because droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookies have been known to do that."

C3PO: "Artoo, I suggest a new strategy. Let the Wookie win."


Guard: "What's this?"

Han: "Prisoner transfer from cell 1138."
(Reference to Lucas' film THX-1138)

"Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arive."

"Bo shuda."

"E chuta!"
"How rude!"

"Apology accepted, Captain Needa."

"Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've created. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force."

I alost forgot:

Luke: "But I was going to Tashi Station to pick up some power coverters!"

Owen: "You can waste time with your friends later!"

Han: Uh, everything's under control! Situation normal.

Voice: What happened?

Han: Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh... everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

"If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short-circuit."

I've got a baaaad feeling about this.

May the force be with you, always.

Too funny:


"Look out, Porkins!"
"It came from... beHIND!"

i can't belive no one has said it yet.

"May the Force be with You..."


A more obscure one:

"Wedge, you're no good back there."

As we used to argue over in fourth grade, who names their kid Wedge? (Actually, we'd argue over who was the greater pilot, Wedge or Luke. :p)

"Boring conversation anyway."

"Run, Luke, run."

Finally, this isn't the one I really wanted, but it's my second choice: R2D2 (click lo-fi play)

Didn't make it into the movie, but a great line from ROTJ novelization:

Jabba the Hut to Luke:

"I was killing your kind when being a Jedi meant something"

"Give these droids to Captian Antillies. Wipe the protocol droid's memory."

3P0 - "What?"

"It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs." (I only like this line because it makes NO sense)"

I recently heard that they justified this line by saying the Kessel Run comes really close to several black holes, so making it in a shorter distance opposed to time actually would make sense...

I can't beleive I just typed that.

Leia: Let go.
Han: Shh.
Leia: Let go, please.
Han: Don't get excited!
Leia: Captain, being held by you isn't quite enough to get me excited.
Han: Sorry sweetheart. I haven't got time for anything else.

"How many guns you think, Gold 5?"
"Say about twenty. Some on the surface, some on the tower."

Just the way those Y-wing pilots talk during their Trench Run.

"I see your Schwarz is as big as mine."

oops...wrong movie...


'It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.' (I only like this line because it makes NO sense).
I recently heard that they justified this line by saying the Kessel Run comes really close to several black holes, so making it in a shorter distance opposed to time actually would make sense...
I can't believe I just typed that."

coolrob, that is the funniest damn thing I have read all week. i giggled like an idiot for full 3 minutes. priceless...


"Sorry about the mess."

"Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try."

Hey, who said George Lucas can't do dialogue? OK, he does one-liners better than conversations, but still. How many filmmakers have picked the right line for so many situations?

"...scruffy looking nerfherder"

"[The Emperor] is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress."

"No my young jedi, I'm afraid it is you who are mistaken about a great many things."

"Only now, at the end, do you realize..."

"We're loosing droids fast."

"You think you're some kind of Jedi, waving your hand around like that?"

Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han: I'm nice men.

Leia: Would it help if I got out and pushed?
Han: It might!

Good! Our first catch of the day.

The Emperor? (squirt) He's coming here?

You rebel scum.

"I recently heard that they justified this line by saying the Kessel Run comes really close to several black holes, so making it in a shorter distance opposed to time actually would make sense...
I can't believe I just typed that.

yes, excuse me whilst I laugh, too. i'm actually surprised that he didn't go in and change that line. i mean hell, he made Han shoot first, yanno?

"The force is strong with this one." - Vader

Luke: "I will never join the dark side!"
Emporer: "The you will DIE!"

"Judge me by my size do you?"

"Hannn...urk...there's still...time...urk...to save Haaan."

"That bad huh?"

"Hey, it's me."

Well hey, they justified it with the whole black hole things so why bother, ehh?

My wife just emailed me and let me know she thinks I'm approaching level 3. :o

"What a wonderful SMELL you've discovered."

That's my fav as well.

Leia: Will someone get this walking carpet out of my way?

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.

Han: YAHOOOOO! You're all clear, kid. Now let's blow this thing and go home.

Star Wars poops on Spiderman 2 for one day box office total ($50M)


One I quote (well, at least in my head) with regularity:

"Now, witness the power of this fully armed and operational battle station."

"You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought."

"You rebel scum."

Yeah I love that one too. Just the way the guy says it, such contempt, such... ACTING.

"What are you going to do?"
"I'm going after that truck."
"I dunno, I'm making this up as I go."

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll kiss three bucks goodbye, at Hardware Wars.
