Top 10 Star Wars Quotes

Film: Episode VI: Return Of The Jedi
Who: C3P0 translating to Jabba The Hutt
What makes it great?
When read back, this quote may not seem so memorable. But these few words perfectly sum up what C3PO is all about – translating gobbledegook and panicing. As C3PO interprets the bounty hunter’s message for Jabba The Hutt, he realises what he’s saying, as he’s saying it. The line is delivered with the purest form of quirky English terror, and mirrored with Jabba’s fearless, cackling response, a classic moment in Star Wars history is born.

    A few important Star Wars lines that I think were possibly overlooked. I will leave it to others to debate.

    Do. Or do not. There is no try. Yoda

    Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. Emperor

    You were right about one thing, Master. The negotiations were short. Obi-Wan.

    Never tell me the odds. Han Solo

    Thanks for the comments guys. This has got quite a lot of attention and I’m flattered. Sorry about the Jedi mistake though, D’oh!

    “Oh Anny! You’re breaking my heart” was the very Star Wars line that not only solidified, in my mind, that ep 1 – 3 were pure trash, but made me want to go ahead and get up and leave ep 3. Though, my friend asked me about an hour into the movie “Hey, ya wanna leave? This sucks.”, it was tempting, but i stomached it through.

    Wow, what a great list. In addition to picking out great lines, you also have great commentary for them. Might not have agreed with all of these choices before, but now I do.

    “Do or not do, there is no try,” is by far the most profound quote of all the SW movies. Yoda the master tells it all with these few words.

    The best Star Wars quotes, I think:
    “Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.”
    “Use the force.”
    “Ive got a bad feeling about this.”
    “I am your father”
    “This battle station will be quite operational when your friends arrive.”

    “The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am” Vader
    in plan speak I’m a b@stard wait till my boss gets here!

    “I love you.” “I know.” See now this line is so much more memorable to me in Return of the Jedi. When Leia returns the favor. I prefer that exchange to this one but this is amoung my favorites.
