Quote of the Day: Star Wars Original Trilogy – R.I.P. Peter Mayhew (19 May 1944 – 30 April 2019)

Star Wars

[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.

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

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

[Pushing past Chewbacca]

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

Han Solo: No reward is worth this.


The Empire Strikes Back

[Chewbacca is fixing C-3PO]

C-3PO: Oh, yes, that’s very good, I like that… Oh!

[the lights in his eyes go out]

C-3PO: Well, now, something’s not right, because now I can’t see!

[Chewie fiddles with something and his eyes turn back on]

C-3PO: Oh, oh, 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…

[Chewie switches 3PO off]

[the storm troopers are taken prisoner by Calrissian’s men]

Lando: [to Lobot, his aide] Well done. Hold them in the security tower, and keep it quiet. Move.

[Lando’s aide and their men walk off with the troops as Lando hands Leia the imperials’ weapons and starts taking off Chewie’s cuffs]

Leia: What do you think you’re doing?

Lando: We’re getting out of here.

C-3PO: I knew all along. Had to be a mistake.

Leia: [angrily] Do you think that after what you did to Han that we’re going to trust you?

[Chewie grabs Lando by the throat]

Lando: [choking] I had no choice!

C-3PO: What are you doing? Trust him, trust him!

Leia: Oh, well, we understand, don’t we, Chewie. You had “no choice”.

Lando: Just trying to help…

Leia: We don’t need any of your help!

Lando: [gasps] Han! Ha- Ha…

Leia: What?

Lando: HAN!

C-3PO: It sounds like Han!

Lando: [gasping] There’s still a chance to save Han! At the east… platform!

Leia: Chewie!

[Leia gets Chewie to drop Lando]

C-3PO: I’m terribly sorry about all this. After all, he’s only a Wookiee!


Return of the Jedi

EP6-Scn24-Fly-Casual_006

Luke: Vader’s on that ship.

Han Solo: Now don’t get jittery, Luke. There are a lot of command ships. Keep your distance, though, Chewie, but don’t *look* like you’re trying to keeping your distance.

[Chewie barks a question]

Han Solo: *I* don’t know. Fly casual.

Great, Chewie! Great! Always thinking with your stomach!

Quote of the Day: Pet Sematary

maxresdefault

[Jud tells Louis the truth about the ground beyond the Pet Sematary]

Louis Creed: I’ll bite Jud. What’s the bottom of the truth?

Jud Crandall: Well, that sometimes, death is better.

Jud Crandall: [narrating] The person you put up there ain’t the person that comes back. It may look like that person, but it ain’t that person. ‘Cause… whatever lives in the ground beyond the Pet Sematary ain’t human at all.

Quote of the Day: The Jewel of the Nile

Ralph: [to Jack] You’re all I thought about for six months! They threw me in a jail filled with rejects from the communicable disease ward. Every wacko, drippy, open-sored low-life was in that joint… all of them wanting to hire on as my proctologist!
