In short, the best lines in the Star Wars films. I’m not sure if that is shorter, but, we’ll go with it anyway. We’ve weeded out anything having to do with the force, because that’s as corny as you can get when it comes to this Space Opera.
I don’t think any of these lines are something no one ever quotes from time to time, but at least a few aren’t as popular, and that’s a shame, as some of the more mainstream-infiltrator ones.
#1 – Don’t call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease.
Best friends like C-3PO and R2-D2 have plenty of moments when they’re not too nice to each other. Too bad we can’t understand everything R2 has to say, but thank god for some Droid to English translation.
#2 – Evacuate in our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances.
Governor Tarkin has some great, chilly, moments in the first film. This one was a tad arrogant of him, knowing how everything turned out.
#3 – Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?
Nothing like a good banter between brother and sister, even if they don’t really know that, yet.
#4 – When I left you, I was but the learner, now I am the master. Only a master of evil, Darth.
Pre fight foreplay of Jedi Masters.
#5 – You don’t know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life.
Another brilliant moment from Grand Moff Tarkin, talking to Leia.
#6 – Lando’s not a system he’s a man!
Han Solo showing us that even in space, in a Galaxy far far away, women have no sense of direction.
#7 – Luke, you can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son.
Luke staring down a wonderful offer from the devil himself (or the devil’s sidekick, which also happens to be his dad who just cut off his hand) and manages to resist the temptation.
#8 – You can’t win, Darth. Strike me down, and I will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
Another bad ass moment from Obi Wan Kenobi, knowing that death is really meaningless in the grand scheme of things.
#9 – I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Darth Vader at his finest moment.
#10 – You don’t need to see his identification … These aren’t the droids you’re looking for … He can go about his business … Move along.
Years later, people are still trying to make the Jedi mind trick work with that motion of the hand. It doesn’t, trust me, I’ve tried a million times.
#11 – When 900 years old, you reach… Look as good, you will not.
Yoda getting all cocky in front of Luke.
