Star Wars: 30 Most Memorable Star Wars QuotesHonorable Mention: The final word of the movie “Argh!” from Chewbacca!

  • Kenzan

    These are classics!
    Though wasn’t it:”“Don’t call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight GLOB of grease?”

    I seem to remember Glob..not blob…
    could be wrong though..

    [ED. NOTE: Had it as glob.. don’t know what happened, so let’s blame spellcheck. Thanks for the heads-up]

  • Yoda

    “Do or do not, there is no try”

    [ED. NOTE: Surely Yoda is smart enough to know he said that in Empire.]

  • Eric

    What about: Negitive, negitive, it didn’t go in. Just a peckin on the surfice.

  • http://cheeseburgerbrown.com/Free_Stories.html Cheeseburger Brown

    I’m with you Kenzan: the line is “glob” not “blob.”

  • rastatech

    Eric: It’s “…just IMPACTED on the surface.” What you said is not only wrong it makes no sense. watch the movie a few more times.
    Also, you guys neglected my FAVORITE quote:
    Han: “I don’t have time to discuss this with your comittee!”
    Leia: “I am NOT a committee!”

  • sarah

    WTF?????? where is the Luke, I am you father quote? It should be #1

    [ED. NOTE: Once again. ‘Luke, I’m your father.’ was from Empire, not the original Star Wars.]

  • kiwiT

    Um where is the most essential quote – “Luke I am your father..”???????!!!!!!!!!!1

  • widget_13

    “I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.”

  • Luke

    My name is Luke, so I’ve heard “Luke, I am your Father” countless times in my life…. I’m wondering why it wasn’t on the list?

    [ED. NOTE: Wonder no longer. It wasn’t said in this movie.]

  • Sleff

    Eric, I think its:
    “Negitive, negitive, it didn’t go in. Just impacted on the surface.”

  • elliott

    no “I AM your father”?????

    and more importantly, no “Look, sir. Droids.”???

    this list is incomplete to say the least.

  • Ian

    Ummmm… You missed:

    “Look sir, droids”

    Seriously, there’s a lot of fun made about that comment (cuz it was so stupid).

    @kiwiT & elliott

  • elliott

    oops, just realised it was only a new hope stuff.

    “look sir droids” still stands though.

  • King Mad

    How about the non English quotes?

  • Nick

    “I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.”

  • Roybert

    Yeah, they are missing the most essential “Luke I am your father”. They also forgot a couple of my other golden moments, “governor Tarkin, I should have expected you to be holding Vaders leash” another goody is “Cut the chatter red 2!” and last but most defiantly not least “I can hold it!!!

    what? wait. I thought the best line was the “walking carpet” one.
    yeah, I can’t remember the whole line. But at least I know it was in this movie!

  • Shawn

    “Can someone get this walking carpet out of my way!!!”

  • Dr Mic

    #7 “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? … It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.” This is TERRIBLE, a parsec is a unit of distance not time ARRGGGGHHHH. Damn Hollywood scriptwriters proud of their techno-babble, too lazy to do any reality checks.

  • Wanderer

    i think the line that cracked me up the most was the

    “I dont like you!!”

  • Chad

    How about:
    “Who is the more foolish? The fool or the fool that follows him?”

  • WampaOne

    Tarkin lines are golden. I love the evacuate one, but bickering is pointless and charming to the last are also golden. My favorites:

    “The Jedi are extinct. Their fire has gone out of the universe”

    “The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.”

    When I like to point out that I found something I sometimes use 3PO´s over heere (to Jawa Sandcrawler) line.


  • Shawn

    I know it was commented before but I think it deserves to be said again,

    what rejects forget “Luke, I am your father”. That’s the number one quote!

    [ED. NOTE: Another in the long line of people who can’t tell the difference between Star Wars and Empire.]

  • Mo3pheus

    #20 should be way higher.

  • Mo3pheus

    Also, what about the Flacon making the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs? How can a race be measured in distance?

    It’s just more of the inane revisionism from your Superman haircut hero, George Lucas.

    What a hack!

  • http://www.burek.co.yu Ivan Minic

    Nothing like yoda :)

  • http://www.lost.eu/4aeb2 jeff

    I agree with Mo3pheus, #20 should be higher.

  • http://bryanstamour.com Bryan St. Amour

    Dr Mic,

    Actually parsecs can be used to measure distance or time. I read that somewhere, wish I had a source to back it up with.

    “But I was gonna go to Anchorhead and pick up some power convertors!!”

  • http://bryanstamour.com Bryan St. Amour

    Nevermind, wikipedia owned me: Parsecs are indeed units of measurement. My mistake.

  • http://bryanstamour.com Bryan St. Amour

    Actually it does make sense, because the kessel run is done by flying past the Maw Cluster of black holes, so making it in less than 12 parsecs means that Han travelled less than 12 parsecs away from the Maw Cluster in order to shorten his time.

    and “I have you now!”

    plus “you may fire when ready”

  • RamDammer

    In the official stories written AFTER Return of the Jedi, one of the books told the story of Han and Chewie making the Kessel Run. Kessel was a planet where Spice was mined. The only way to get to Kessel was to traverse a maze of black holes, or to just go around it, which would have taken waay longer than going thru the black hole maze. So, making the “Kessel Run” in less than 12 parsecs is accurate, as Han brillaintly navigated it in record time and shortest distance. If you were a true fanboy, you would have read the books that fill in the stories before, between and after the movies. By the way, Spice is the crystals that come from the web of a spider-like giant creature and deliveres temporary empathic abilities to the user.

    I, too, noticed the thing about parsecs. Stupid Hollywood. I guess they just used it because of “secs” being like “seconds.” Most people watching wouldn’t even know the difference…sadly.

    It’s like the sorry attempt at parody in the World of Warcraft episode of South Park…sad, really.

    Well this is a hornet’s nest of opinion if ever I saw one!

    My vote for best quote not on the list:

    “We’re going in, we’re going in full throttle.”

    Not only is it badass but it inspired a whole Prodigy track (although the sample was reversed in the album release)

    Note to the rabid fanboy: When Lucas wrote the the film he had no idea what a “parsec” was, he just though it sounded cool and put it in the movie. Later on, his minions realized the error and wrote books to cover his mistake. It’s the same reason he explained C3PO being built by Darth Vader:

  • willis

    as per the under 12 parsecs comments…
    it’s not a race you idiots, the kessel run is an illegal smuggling run, carrying spice, (an intoxicant that is illegal most places in the galaxy), from the mines on kessel, out of the system to free space. the imperials guard it well, and there is this little thing called the Kessel Maul…

    doing the RUN, (not race you morons) in under 12 parsecs means superior navigation, as well as an outstanding ship, because it’s setup allowed you to cut corners, get closer to stars, and other gravity wells, without dropping you out of hyperspace, which technically has no distance….

    so i guess the point here is who is the bigger moron, the one who makes a fantastic script, filled with a wonderful story, or the moron who tries to bash at it with their so called intelligence, without so much as a basic understanding of the context of the content.

    I liked most of those except, “Boring story anyway…” That always made my skin crawl. Han’s sexiest line was something like “Yeah, I bet you did!” right before he shoots Grido. Luke’s funniest whiny line was “Uncle Owen, this R2 unit has a bad motivator!” That one makes me laugh every time.

  • Named My Daughter After Leia

    Saying that the “Luke I am your father” line was missing from the list is as intelligent as saying that the line “Live Long And Prosper” was left off the list too. Why? BECAUSE NEITHER LINE WAS IN THE ORIGINAL MOVIE STAR WARS!!!

    I would like to point out to all the people who are saying that “I your father” is in Empire: When I first came upon this, I ignored the intro and went straight to the quote list,so I didn’t see that instead of calling A New Hope by it’s name (or even Episode IV), it is here simply referred to as Star Wars. I believe this is what creates the confusion.

    I’m not sure what bugs me more – the fact that people keep asking why the line “No, I am your father,” wasn’t in the movie, or that they keep erroneously saying that the quote was, “Luke, I am your father.” Come on people, if you’re truly Star Wars fans, I wouldn’t even have to explain this.

    That being said… great list!

    [ED. NOTE: We had hoped that stating “In honor of the 30th anniversary of the premiere of the original ‘Star Wars’” would be enough considering that by using that statement there can be NO other movie we are talking about besides the very first “Star Wars” movie George Lucas made in 1977 30 years ago, also known as Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope. And the fact that NOT ONE quote from the list is from any other movies from the saga should help readers deduce which movie we are speaking of, though, I guess not. But, I understand your frustration, though, it’s kind of amusing. How many “I am your father” comments can we get, lol.

    Wheres “No, I am your father”?

    LMAO just kidding! Half the people reading this arnt too bright…most of us worked out that ALL of the quotes are from the first one! Nice list, I would have ordered them slightly differently myself but most of them were there. It must be pretty hard to to pick 30 quotes, most of the lines in this film are VERY memorable! But I think we all knew that “May the force be with you” would be number one! Good list though, well done!

    I didn’t see this quote, but this is one of my favorite ones. It is from Darth Vader in the Return Of The Jedi when Darth Vader arrives at the partially completed Death Star at the beginning of the show, and he says to one of the imperial officers when the officer learns that the empororer is arriving. He tells the officer when the officers tells Darth Vader that he and his men will double the efforts on the construction of the Death Star…

    “I hope so commander, for your sake. The emperor is not as forgiving as I am”. =D

  • Torretto

    Mo3pheus, Darth Vader DID build C3PO, if you remember from episode one, C3PO was built by the then 9-year old Anakin Skywalker, and Darth Vader is Anakin Skywalker. Also regarding the quote about the kessel run in 12 parsecs, i am glad that it has been mostly cleared up, but to elaborate, if you have watched A New Hope dvd with commentary, George Lucas clearly states that he knows parsecs are a measure of distance not time, and he knew it back in 1977 too. He states that that quote does make sense because the Millenium Falcon is not physically the fastest ship in the universe, but it is the fastest because it has the most advanced navigation computer to allow it to take the shortest possible distance around objects in hyperspace, therefore the quote is accurate. Also, a note to the editor regarding your note on adam`s post, Empire came out 3 years after A New Hope, not 2 years.

  • Paul

    In regards to the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs… I think it should be noted that it is correct. Han flew the Kessel run through an asteroid field that was considered impassable, which significantly shortened the overall length of the flight. Hence the reason to boas

    And I believe the the “Kessel Run” involves passing by several black holes. Straight lines are faster than curved ones. This means: if you can take a line “less than 12 parsecs” away from a black hole then you are taking a straight (fast) line and may have something to be proud of.

  • AMG

    Great list, really tough to pick out only 30 quotes; but i have gone with more Tarkin lines, my fav of which is:
    “The Jedi are extinct. Their fire has gone out of the universe”

    On the Kessel run debate, regardless of whether Lucas knew about the Black holes or not, a parsec (normally unit of distance) can be used as a measure of time in Relativity – time and distance become interchangeable (in theory you can measure your age in meters, say). So its fully conceivable that the Han was measuring time in parsecs…. (not that I’m saying that’s what Lucas meant by the line, just that it is possible…)

Too often the memorable part is not the quote but the scene in its entirety. Quotes like “that’s no moon…” have no flair in their use of language. It just serves as a bookmark for a very memorable scene. Granted these are just my opinions, so there’s no need for people to get upset(but they probably will anyway).

    When Alec Guinness says “Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy,” to describe how vile the place is, well, that is a great use of language. Its not just an auditory marker used to identify a great scene. Thats my two cents.

    Anyway, thanks for posting this commemorative list of episode IV.

  • http://huh? Diana

    My daughter is having a Star Wars birthday party tomorrow, and I’m looking for quotes such as these for a “who said it” game. These are great… but not all of them say who said it.. can you help me… really, really soon?

  • Simon

    I don’t think this quote is accurate: “Boring conversation anyway. Luke, we’re gonna have company!”. Wasn’t it something like “I never liked conversation anyway…”?

  • Cesca Palmer

    I love how the editors of this website started politely telling people about the “luke I am your father” quote, then just got totally arsey by the end. Kudos Editors.

    My favourite quote would have to be…

    “you came in that thing? you’re braver than I thought”

    The whole parsec time vs distance debate was on Family Guy’s Blue Harvest. It made me smile.

    By the way, has anyone seen that one episode of Scrub’s where JD’s girlfriend’s godfather is Billy Dee, a.k.a Lando Calrissian.

    Billy Dee: Yeah, Julie’s a great girl
    Turk: _stunned silence_ AHHHHH (screams) LANDO CALRISSIAN!!! _hugs Billy Dee_
    Billy Dee: you can call me Billy Dee.
    Turk: Yes Lando Yes.

    its better when there not shhoting back/some droid said that i think

  • http://geeksofdoom clone #788000

    oops i think that was the animated version of starwars the clone wars


    Great list, and I loved all the debates that arose on the comment board. But my fav quote from this movie was missing, and no one seems to have mentioned it in the comments either:

    “I think it’s time we demonstrate the full power of this Station” – Tarkin (if I remember correctly)

    Or when Obi’s using his mind tricks on the storm trooper officer at Mos Eisley:

    “You don’t need to see our identification.
    These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.
    Let us go about our business.
    Move along.” and the storm trooper repeats every line, totally owned ;)

  • The force

    Okay you people are starting to seriously piss me off. I read about half of the comments before I got sick of seeing “I am your father!!” First of all half of you got the quote wrong, it’s “No Luke I am your father.” and second of all, as the editor has said countless times THIS PAGE ONLY HAS QUOTES FROM SAR WARS EPISODE IV “A NEW HOPE” NOT FROM EPISODES I, II, III, V, or VI!!!!!! God you people are so ignorant!!!!!!!

  • Irish Diablo

    “I am your father” is not from “Star Wars”, it is from “The Empire Strikes Back”… this thread is in regard to the Anniversary of the ORIGINAL “Star Wars”… capice?

  • EternalsBlissy

    After reading this, the editor seems to go to great lenths to show that he means the movie, ‘A New Hope’. When referring to Star Wars, to me it encompasses ALL the movies and genre. My bad. I understand you are doing this for the thirtieth anniversary and all, but maybe for some of us older geeks you might include ‘A New Hope’ so it is less confusing. Cheers!

    The kessel run is 12 parsecs is right, Han Solo took a dangerous route that ran past the Maw black hole cluster cutting the original run by 11.5 parsecs. lol I love star wars.

  • Wamprat

    hahaha the list is fantastic, but i agree with the person earlier that said you need to hear them in context. it’s hard to narrow it down to 30 when the whole movie is filled with them. its profoundly amusing seeing all the posts that refer to the “no luke, i am your father” quote..i mean its not that hard to figure out which movie we are talking about and what the actual quote is…just watch the movie?? i say kudos to the people who made this site haha the E.D Notes are really amusing
    favourite quotes from THIS movie would be…..
    ‘i wonder whats happened to little R2, he’s always getting himself into trouble’ (ironic huh?)
    ‘what a lovely smell you’ve discovered’
    ‘Look sir, droids’

    also to that person who calls george lucas a hack…your a douche. he is one of the most brilliant minded people in the world

    I personally think that Obi-Wan has some of the best (and most ridiculous) lines like: “Only a master of evil Darth” however my favourite has got to be this:

    “The sandpeople are easily startled but they’ll soon be back, and in greater numbers”

    Never fails to amuse me :)

    “He must choose his own path; no one can choose it for him”

  • Dain

    the fact that the parsec is a unit of distance not time is actually correct because the kessel run is made through a bunch of uncharted black holes. there are an unlimited number of paths to take to get from start to finish and han made it in a record distance. but when bragging about how ‘fast’ his ship is, Han shouldn’t have used that personal best to describe it

  • http://geeksofdoom.com Joe

  • ….

    A parsec is an astronomical unit of measurement that is equivalent to 3.26 light years distance, or the distance photons will travel in vacuum over the period of 3.26 years. Light travels at an approximate speed of 186,000 miles per second (300,000 kilometers per second), so a parsec represents a distance of just over 19 trillion miles (~31 trillion kilometers).

  • Wayne Francis

    But going near a black hole will only lengthen both your run time and distance. If you want to travel between 2 points travelling through flat space is the shortest distance. Going near a black hole might slow your local time down but to external observers your trip will take longer.

  • hijinx

    Obiwan: ‘Who is more foolish? the fool, or the fool that follows him?’

  • austin

    hey about the kessel run debate, naturally the people that support lucas would be right, with the whole shortened because he flew so close to a black hole theory.
    that was explained in the books where luke first starts his new academy.
    UNFORTUNATELY, if you do some research, you’ll find that originally lucas ment for this line to be an obvious lie. sorry guys i was dissapointed myself since i liked through the black hole defense in my friend’s faces, oh well

    and i mean anyone that respects the star was universe should know that this movie was released with the title star wars and nothing else, it was revised to star wars a new hope around the time they came out with empire strikes back.

    great list, funny comments.

  • austin

    It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs! Ben reacts to Solo’s stupid attempt to impress them with obvious misinformation.

    So it implies that the puzzling speech of Han Solo is “misinformation” and not truth, and it has nothing to do with the nature of the Kessel Run in any respect. Han means nothing other than impressing Obi-Wan and Luke with pure boasting. Indeed, even in the final version of the script, the parenthesis attached to Han’s line states that he is “obviously lying.”

    Just searching the web looking for a good Star Wars quote for my ten yr olds year book. When I found this site. Its an hour later and my face hurts from all the laughing. Thanks for the site and thanks for all the posts. I personally love the all the Han Solo quotes and couldn’t pick a favorite. I do strongly agree with another poster who stated that the world would be a better place if we spend more time doing things like this. Now, “go about your business … Move along!”

  • Aurora R

    how about Luke, I am your father?

  • Marina

    That’s from “Return of the Jedi”. Apparently, only “A New Hope” is quoted here. =)

  • Xckidd1991

    What about one of the FUNNIEST parts of the movie? When they are attacking the death star and the Fat Guy in the Y-wing is in the channel with his little targeting gadget over his eyes? It goes something like:
    Fat guy: I’m going in.
    pilot: Watch out uve got 3 bad guys on your tail
    Fat guy: stay on target…
    Pilot: They’ve got us locked!
    Fat guy: stay on target…
    (one y-wing gets blown up)
    Fat guy: Stay on target!
    (Other wingman gets blown up)
    (Vader targets lead y-wing)
    Fat guy: STAY ON TARGET!!!
    (Fat Guy in Y-wing gets blown to bits)

    Idk I thought it was really funny, in a messed up way…
    I could always get my brother to laugh when he was trying to get me to answer something and I’d just repeat: STAY ON TARGET. lol

    BTW i think this is in the first one buuuuuut it may be the other time they attack the DEATH STAR.

  • Guest

    Actually thats from Empire

  • Jeffkapes

    UMM… that is from “Empire Strikes Back” not “Return of the Jedi” buddy!

  • Wingey

    Actually, the line goes “No, I am your father”

    There is no “Luke” in that sentence. The common misconception is that there is.

    “Luke, I am your father” was conceived probably to indicate to others where that line came from.

    FYI :)

    Every time an ignorant commenter demands to know why “I am your father” was not included in this list – which is clearly designated as containing ONLY quotes from the original Star Wars film – Darth Vader stomps a puppy.

    Yes, it’s one of the most memorable Star Wars quotes. No, it’s not one of the most memorable “Star Wars” quotes because IT WAS NEVER SAID IN THAT FILM.

  • Yolanda

    Han Solo: “Uh, everything’s under control; situation: normal.”
    Stormtrooper on intercom: “What happened?”
    Han: “Uhh, 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?” *wince*
    Princess Leia: “Somebody’s gotta save our skins!”
    Stormtrooper: “Look, sir, droids!”
    Luke whining to Uncle Owen: “But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”
    Han: “What a wonderful SMELL you’ve discovered!”
    Luke: “There’s something alive in here…!”

    A lot of these lines are funny just because of the way the actors delivered them. Those people are geniuses.

    I do not understand how Admiral Ackbar saying “It’s a trap” isn’t on this list. Good list, but because of the depth and pure awesomeness that is Episodes 3 through 6 obviously some things aren’t going to make it onto the list.
