Quote of the Day: Return of the Jedi

Han Solo: [as Lando is being dragged down by Sarlaac] Chewie, give me the gun! Don’t move, Lando!

Lando Calrissian: No, wait! I thought you were blind!

Han Solo: It’s alright, I can see a lot better! Don’t move!

Lando Calrissian: Up a little higher! Just a little higher!

Quote of the Day: Return of the Jedi

The Emperor: Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, up there on the sanctuary moon, are walking into a trap, as is your Rebel fleet. It was *I* who allowed the Alliance to know the location of the shield generator. It is quite safe from your pitiful little band. An entire legion of my best troops awaits them. Oh, I’m afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Happy 72nd birthday to Ian McDiarmid!!!

Quote(s) of the Day: Star Wars trilogy

May the 4th Be With You!! Here is a quote from each of the original Star Wars trilogy films.

Han Solo: Uh, everything’s under control. Situation normal.

Voice: What happened?

Han Solo:  Uh, 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?

Voice: We’re sending a squad up.

Han Solo: Uh, uh… negative, negative. We had a reactor leak here now. Give us a few minutes to lock it down. Large leak, very dangerous.

Voice: Who is this? What’s your operating number?

Han Solo: Uh…

Han Solo:  Boring conversation anyway. LUKE, WE’RE GONNA HAVE COMPANY!


Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don’t make me destroy you.  Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.

Luke: I’ll never join you!

Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.

Luke: He told me enough! He told me you killed him!

Darth Vader: No. I am your father.

Luke: No. No. That’s not true. That’s impossible!

Darth Vader: Search your feelings, you know it to be true!

Luke:  No! No!


Luke: If I don’t make it back, you’re the only hope for the Alliance.

Princess Leia: Luke, don’t talk that way. You have a power I don’t understand and could never have.

Luke: You’re wrong, Leia. You have that power too. In time you’ll learn to use it as I have. The Force runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And… my sister has it. Yes. It’s you, Leia.

Princess Leia: I know. Somehow, I’ve always known.

Really, Leia, really? Did you really always know?
