Quote of the Day: Cheers


Woody: Kelly’s coming back from Europe today.

Frasier: Ah, she’s hopping the pond.

Woody: What?

Frasier: Well, the pond. It’s a reference to the Atlantic.

Woody: Why, Dr. Crane. The Atlantic is an ocean. How many of those have you had?

Frasier: Apparently, not enough.


Rebecca: So did you get a chance to see Carla’s babies?

Sam: We sure did. They are two of the cutest little guys you have ever seen.

Rebecca: Who do they look like Carla or Eddie.

Woody: Well they’re twins. They kinda’ look like each other.

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


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!
