Star Wars is a marvelous and magical franchise jam packed with exciting moments, beautiful locations, and iconic, lovable characters and today I’m going to share with you my favorite quotes from the various films’ many hilarious and epic moments.
13. “Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.” (Princess Leia in A New Hope)
This is one of the most iconic quotes in movie history and it really set in motion a whole lot of events. Luke going to find Obi-Wan, Obi-Wan showing Luke a lightsaber for the first time and telling him about the Force, and the eventual decision that Luke made, due to his uncle and aunt being murdered by the Empire, to learn to become a Jedi. Without that secret message delivered by Princess Leia events would’ve gone unknown and the still extending story of Star Wars would not be here today. This is a pretty incredible quote in Star Wars.
12. “I know.” (Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back)
The love story between Han Solo and Princess Leia is one of the greatest (I believe the greatest) love stories in science fiction history and the defining moment of their relationship was when Han was faced with possible death as he was going to be frozen in carbonite. When Leia told him, “I love you” he was originally going to say, “I love you too” but thanks to Harrison Ford’s profound understanding of the character he said they should change his line and turn it into, “I know.”
Han is such a cocky, self-confident and slightly narcissistic man so of course he would say to her, “I know.” And that’s why this is one of the most genius “I love you too” responses ever. It totally speaks to Han’s character and it is the sweetest thing he has ever said. This is already an impactful moment in the movie but when I found out Harrison Ford was the one who changed that moment, for the better, it became that much more magical of a scene.
11. “I am fluent in over six million forms of communication.” (C-3PO)
I can’t tell you how many times C-3PO has said to people this hilarious quote but that’s why it’s so funny. Not only does it convey that the protocol droid can well, speak in six million forms of communication, but it’s hilarious because C-3PO is so proud of that and he doesn’t hide his pride of that fact either. C-3PO may be a droid but he definitely is the funniest droid ever created.
