Favourite quotes of Star Wars Episode 1

This is my personal favourite quotes of Episode 1, OK the film could have been better (to put it mildly) but for fans of the series there were still some good lines

Here are my favourite Star Wars episode 1 quotes

Qui-Gon Jinn:
There’s always a bigger fish.

Qui-Gon Jinn:
Finding him was the will of the force, I have no doubt of that.

Chancellor Palpatine:
And you, young Skywalker; we shall watch your career with great interest.

Obi-Wan:
The council has granted me permission to train you. You will be a Jedi, I promise.

Qui-Gon Jinn:
Greed can be a very powerful ally.

Qui-Gon Jinn:
Remember, concentrate on the moment. Feel, don’t think. Trust your instincts.

Shmi Skywalker:
There was no father. I carried him, I gave birth, I raised him. I can’t explain what happened.

Yoda:
Always two there are, no more, no less. A master and an apprentice.
Mace Windu:
But which was destroyed, the master or the apprentice?

Yoda:
Everything! Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you.

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi quotes

Luke: I’ll not leave you here. I’ve got to save you.
Anakin: You already have, Luke.

Luke: Master Yoda, you can’t die.
Yoda: Strong am I with the Force, but not that strong.

Luke: Your thoughts betray you, Father. I feel the good in you, the conflict.
Darth Vader: There is no conflict.
Luke: You couldn’t bring yourself to kill me before and I don’t believe you’ll destroy me now.
Darth Vader: You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.

Yoda: That face you make… look I so old to young eyes?
Luke: No. Of course not.
Yoda: I do. Yes, I do. Sick have I become, old and weak… When nine hundred years old *you* reach, look as good *you* will not, hmm?

Han Solo: Who are you?
Princess Leia: Someone who loves you.

Yoda: No more training do you require. Already know you, that which you need.
Luke: Then I am a Jedi.
Yoda: No. Not yet. One thing remains. Vader. You must confront Vader. Then, only then, a Jedi will you be. And confront him you will.

Darth Vader: Luke… help me take this mask off.
Luke: But you’ll die.
Darth Vader: Nothing… can stop that now. Just for once… let me… look on you with my *own* eyes.
Anakin: Now… go, my son. Leave me.
Luke: No. You’re coming with me. I’ll not leave you here, I’ve got to save you.
Anakin: You already… have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister… you were right.
Luke: Father… I won’t leave you.

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan has taught you well.

Admiral Ackbar: We have no choice, General Calrissian! Our cruisers can’t repel firepower of that magnitude!
Lando Calrissian: Han will have that shield down. We’ve got to give him more time!

Han Solo: Boba Fett? Boba Fett? Where?

Lando Calrissian: That blast came from the Death Star! That thing’s operational!

Princess Leia: Luke, tell me. What’s troubling you?
Luke: Vader’s here, now, on this moon.
Princess Leia: How do you know?
Luke: I feel his presence. He’s come for me. He can feel when I’m near. That’s why I have to go. As long as I stay, I’m endangering the group and our mission. I have to face him.
Princess Leia: Why?
Luke: [pause] He’s my father.

Han Solo: [flying across the deserts of Tatooine] I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big bright blur.
Luke: There’s nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.
Han Solo: You’re gonna die here, you know. Convenient.

Luke: Master Yoda… is Darth Vader my father?
Yoda: [avoiding the subject] Rest I need. Yes. Rest.
Luke: Yoda, I must know. If you know, tell me.
Yoda: Your father he is.
Yoda: Told you, did he?
Luke: Yes.
Yoda: Unexpected this is. And unfortunate.
Luke: Unfortunate that I know the truth?
Yoda: No! Unfortunate that you rushed to face him… that incomplete was your training. That… not ready for the burden were you.

Han Solo: I’m sure Luke wasn’t on that thing when it blew.
Princess Leia: He wasn’t. I can feel it.
Han Solo: You love him,
Han Solo: don’t you?
Princess Leia: Yes.
Han Solo: All right. I understand. Fine. When he comes back, I won’t get in the way.
Princess Leia: Oh, Han, it’s not like that at all.
Princess Leia: He’s my brother.

C-3PO: R2, why did you have to be so brave?

Mon Mothma: Many Bothans died to bring us this information.

Luke: Search your feelings, Father, you can’t do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate.
Darth Vader: It is too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.
Luke: Then my father is truly dead.

Princess Leia: But, why must you confront him?
Luke: Because, there is good in him. I’ve felt it. He won’t turn me over to the Emperor. I can save him. I can turn him back to the good side. I have to try.

Luke: I will not fight you, father.
Darth Vader: You are unwise to lower your defenses!

Darth Vader: I see you have constructed a new light saber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are powerful as the Emperor has foreseen.

Princess Leia: General, count me in.

Han Solo: I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big light blur.
Luke: There’s nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.
Han Solo: You’re going to die here, you know. Convenient.

C-3PO: I do believe they think I am some kind of god.
Han Solo: Well, why don’t you use your divine influence and get us out of this?
C-3PO: I beg your pardon General Solo, but that just wouldn’t be proper.
Han Solo: Proper?
C-3PO: It’s against my programming to impersonate a deity.

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.

Luke: Never. I’ll never turn to the Dark Side. You’ve failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.
The Emperor: So be it… Jedi!

Han Solo: I love you.
Princess Leia: I know.

Lando Calrissian: Break off the attack! The shield is still up!
Wedge Antilles: I get no reading. Are you sure?
Lando Calrissian: Pull up! All craft, pull up!
Admiral Ackbar: Take evasive action! Green group, stick close to holding section MV-7!
Mon Calamari: Admiral! We have enemy ships in sector 47!
Admiral Ackbar: It’s a trap!

Yoda: Soon will I rest, yes, forever sleep. Earned it I have.
Luke: Master Yoda, you can’t die.
Yoda: Ah, strong am I with the Force, but not that strong. Twilight is upon me, and soon, night must fall. That is the way of things. The way of the Force.

The Emperor: I’m looking forward to completing your training. In time you will call *me* master.
Luke: You’re gravely mistaken. You won’t convert me as you did my father.
The Emperor: Oh no, my young Jedi. You will find that it is you who are mistaken, about a great many things.

The Emperor: Come, boy, see for yourself. From here, you will witness the final destruction of the Alliance and the end of your insignificant rebellion.
The Emperor: You want this, don’t you? The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.
Luke: No.
The Emperor: It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. You, like your father, are now mine.

The Emperor: Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you.

C-3PO: I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

Lando Calrissian: Don’t worry, my friend’s down there. He’ll have that shield down in time.
Lando Calrissian: Or this’ll be the shortest offensive of all time.

Han Solo: Together again, huh?
Luke: Wouldn’t miss it.
Han Solo: How we doin’?
Luke: Same as always.
Han Solo: That bad, huh?

Luke: Threepio, tell them if they don’t do as you wish, you’ll become angry and use your magic.
C-3PO: But, Master Luke, what magic? I couldn’t possibly…
Luke: Just tell them.

Jabba the Hutt: You may have been a good smuggler, but now you’re Bantha fodder.

Han Solo: I have a really bad feeling about this.

Luke: Soon I’ll be dead, and you with me.
The Emperor: Perhaps you refer to the imminent attack of your rebel fleet? Yes, I assure you, we are quite safe from your friends here.
Luke: Your overconfidence is your weakness.
The Emperor: Your faith in your friends is yours.

Han Solo: [to Chewie about the Ewoks] Well, short help is better than no help at all.

Princess Leia: Luke, what’s wrong?
Luke: Leia, do you remember your mother? Your real mother?
Princess Leia: Just a little bit. She died when I was very young.
Luke: What do you remember?
Princess Leia: Just… images really. Feelings.
Luke: Tell me.
Princess Leia: She was… very beautiful. Kind, but sad. Why are you asking me this?
Luke: I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her.

Imperial Officer: You rebel scum.

Darth Vader: The Emperor has been expecting you.
Luke: I know, father.
Darth Vader: So, you have accepted the truth?
Luke: I have accepted that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father.
Darth Vader: That name no longer has any meaning for me!

Moff Jerjerrod: Lord Vader, this is an unexpected pleasure. We are honored by your presence…
Darth Vader: You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander. I’m here to put you back on schedule.
Moff Jerjerrod: I assure you, Lord Vader. My men are working as fast as they can.
Darth Vader: Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.

Moff Jerjerrod: The Emperor’s coming here?
Darth Vader: That is correct, Commander. And, he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.
Moff Jerjerrod: We shall double our efforts.
Darth Vader: I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

Lando Calrissian: Split up and head back to the surface. And see if you can get a few of those TIE fighters to follow you.

C-3PO: Exciting is hardly the word I would choose.

Darth Vader: His light saber.
The Emperor: Ah, yes. A Jedi’s weapon, much like your father’s. By now you must know that your father can never be turned from the Dark Side. So will it be with you.

Han Solo: Well, look at you! A General, huh?
Lando Calrissian: Someone must have told them all about my little maneuver at the battle of Taanab.
Han Solo: Well, don’t look at me, pal. I just said you were a fair pilot. I didn’t know they were looking for somebody to *lead* this crazy attack.
Lando Calrissian: I’m surprised they didn’t ask you to do it.
Han Solo: Well, who says they didn’t? Only I ain’t crazy.

Luke: Come with me. Leave everything behind.
Darth Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don’t know the power of the Dark Side. I must obey my master.

Darth Vader: A small rebel force has penetrated the shield and landed on Endor.
The Emperor: Yes, I know.
Darth Vader: My son is with them.
The Emperor: Are you sure?
Darth Vader: I have *felt* him, my master.
The Emperor: Strange that I have not. I wonder if your feelings on this matter are clear, Lord Vader.
Darth Vader: They are clear, my master.

C-3PO: What could possibly have come over Master Luke? Is it something I did? He never expressed any unhappiness with my work.

Princess Leia: I… I can’t tell you.
Han Solo: Did you tell Luke? Is that who you could tell?

Luke: I’ll meet you back at the fleet.
Princess Leia: Hurry. The Alliance should be assembled by now.
Luke: I will.
Han Solo: Hey, Luke, thanks. Thanks for coming after me. I owe you one.

Darth Vader: Do they have a code clearance?
Admiral Piett: It’s an older code, sir, but it checks out. I was about to clear them.

Lando Calrissian: Here goes nothing.

C-3PO: I never knew I had it in me.

The Emperor: And now, young Skywalker… you will die.

The Emperor: Rise my friend.
Darth Vader: The Death Star will be completed on schedule.
The Emperor: You’ve done well, Lord Vader. And now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Skywalker.
Darth Vader: Yes, my Master.
The Emperor: Patience, my friend. In time, he will seek *you* out, and when he does, you must bring him before me. He has grown strong. Only together can we turn him to the Dark Side of the Force.
Darth Vader: As you wish.
The Emperor: Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Darth Vader: He will come to me?
The Emperor: I have foreseen it. His compassion for you will be his undoing. He will come to you and then you will bring him before me.
Darth Vader: As you wish.

General Madine: We have stolen a small Imperial shuttle. Disguised as a cargo ship, and using a secret Imperial code, a strike team will land on the moon and deactivate the shield generator.
C-3PO: It sounds dangerous.
Princess Leia: Who have they found to pull that off?
General Madine: General Solo, is your strike team assembled?

Lando Calrissian: That was too close.

C-3PO: I have decided that we shall stay here.

Lando Calrissian: All right, Wedge. Go for the power regulator on the north tower.
Wedge Antilles: Copy, Gold Leader. I’m already on my way out.

Admiral Piett: Shall I hold them?
Darth Vader: No. Leave them to me. I will deal with them myself.

Jabba the Hutt: This bounty hunter is my kind of scum: fearless and inventive.

Princess Leia: It only takes one to sound the alarm.
Han Solo: Then we’ll do it real quiet-like.

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.

Han Solo: 3PO. You tell that slimy piece of worm-ridden filth, he’ll get no such pleasure from us.
[to Chewbacca]
Han Solo: Right?

Admiral Piett: I have my orders from the Emperor himself. He has something special planned for them. We only need to keep them from escaping.

Jabba the Hutt: There will be no bargain, young Jedi. I shall enjoy watching you die.

Mon Mothma: The Emperor’s made a critical error, and the time for our attack has come.

Lando Calrissian: Watch yourself Wedge, Three from above!
Wedge Antilles: Red Three, Red Two, pull in!
Red Two: Got it.
Red Two: Three of them coming in, twenty degrees.
Wedge Antilles: Cut to the left, I’ll take the leader.

Admiral Ackbar: The Shield is down! Commence attack on the Death star’s main reactor.
Lando Calrissian: We’re on our way, Red group, Gold group, all fighters follow me. Ha ha ha, I told you they’d do it!

Stardestroyer Controller #1: Sir! We’ve lost our bridge deflector shield!
Admiral Piett: Intensify the forward batteries, I don’t want anything to get through.
Admiral Piett: Intensify forward fire power!
Imperial Officer: Too late!
