My absolute favourite EU quote:
"Everything I tell you is a lie."
Plus, anything Kreia says.
Judge me by my size do you? And well you should not.....
"Teach me about pain, think you can? Think the old Master cannot care, mmmm? Forgotten who I am, have you? Old am I, yes. Mm. Loved more than you, have I, Padawan. Lost more. Hated more. Killed more. Think wisdom comes at no cost? The dark side, yes- it is easier for them. The pain grows too great, and they eat the darkness to flee from it. Not Yoda. Yoda loves and suffers for it, loves and suffers. The price of Yoda's wisdom, high it is, very high, and the cost goes on forever. But teach me about pain, will you?"
-Yoda, 'Dark Rendezvous'
There is an order to things. DG blames me, I blame you, you blame your imaginary sister, Addie gets agitated, we all win. -
Dark Rendezvous was simply the most amazing novel the Clone Wars ever created.
Kar Vastor: "I have known Jedi. Many, many years ago. That knowing was not a gladness for me. I believed I would never know another, and I rejoiced in that belief. But it is a gladness for me to be proven wrong. I am happy to have known you, Jedi Luke Skywalker. You are more than they were."
Luke: "That's—I mean, thanks, but I barely know anything."
Kar Vastor: "So you believe. But I say to you: you are greater than the Jedi of former days."
Luke: "What makes you say that?"
Kar Vastor: "Because unlike the Knights of old, Jedi Luke Skywalker… you are not afraid of the dark."
–“Do you really think you could take a man as a slave, or pummel me with rocks, and still hope to retain your innocence?”
"You couldn't channel the Force wearing that dress. There isn't enough room in there for it to squeeze through." - Kyp Durron, Dark Journey
“With those words, you have earned yourself much pain.”
“I take it the Vong don’t get promoted for their conversational skills.”
Wedge: "Sithspit! What's that?"
Janson: "That's the sun, Wedge. It's after dawn."
Wedge: "Well, it offends me. Turn it off."
Janson: "It's one-thirty, one-forty million klicks away from here."
Wedge: "Go up in your X-wing and shoot it down."
Janson: "Wedge, stop acting like a little kid. You're embarrassing me."
Janson: "His name is Kettch, and he's an Ewok."
Janson: "Oh, yes. Determined to fight. You should hear him say, 'Yub, yub.' He makes it a battle cry."
Wedge: "Wes, assuming he could be educated up to Alliance fighter-pilot standards, an Ewok couldn't even reach an X-wing's controls."
Janson: "He wears arm and leg extensions, prosthetics built for him by a sympathetic medical droid. And he's anxious to go, Commander."
Wedge: "Please tell me you're kidding."
Janson: "Of course I'm kidding. Pilot-candidate number one is a Human female from Tatooine, Falynn Sandskimmer."
Wedge: "I'm going to get you, Janson."
Janson: "Yub, yub, Commander."
Tycho: “That was interesting."
Wedge: "He deliberately countermanded one of my orders."
Tycho: "He was furtive."
Wedge: "Sneaky, even."
Tycho: "We'll make a Rebellion-style pilot of him yet."
"is that legal?" "I will make it legal!"
Leia: "We're in this together nerfherder. This won't be like the time you left me to deal with that unwashed vent crawler she brought home."
Han:"Honey, that was Zekk."
Leia: "I know who it was."
"Hey, hey, hey, take it easy with the bacta, huh?"
"Han, he's hurt."
"Sure, I know. But he's not dying, is he? Do you know how much that stuff costs?"
"Are you a Yedi too Ben?"
I figure it's pretty obvious, since it's my signature, but:
"We're the same thing, you and I. We're both lies that eventually became the truth." - Lara Notsil, Solo Command
"I am a Jedi, like my father before me." - Luke Skywalker, Return of the Jedi
Pretty much anything ever by Allston.
"Hang on a minute. I'll come with you." - Mara Jade, The Last Command and Vision of the Future
"I know what you're going to say."
"I don't think you do."
"You're going to tell me that I screwed up. You're going to elaborate until you're certain I can't take it anymore. Then you're going to leave."
"No. We both know that your command decisions were far afield of common sense and effective strategy. We don't even have to discuss that. What I have to know...What I have to know is this: Why did you do it?"
"I don't know."
"You do know. You have to know. Nobody else but you could know. Answer me."
"I...I...Everyone is going away. They keep going away and I can't stop it. I didn't wan t you to go away."
"I won't go anywhere."
"Why won't you go anywhere?"
"Because I don't want to." - Jaina Solo and Jagged Fel, Rebel Dream
I actually have not read the book, but Stover's monologue on darkness and love in Revenge of the Sith is pretty amazing.
"Don't make me go Vader on you." - Wedge Antilles, Mandatory Retirement
"Listen to me, Avan Beruss, when I decide I like someone, I'm in it for the long haul. No dying allowed, me or you."
"Listening to you, I actually believe we have a chance."
"We do, a very good one. To get out of here, and to be together, you and me. No dying, remember that.
"No dying. It's a pact."
"May the Force be with you, my love." - Feylis Ardele and Avan Beruss, Mandatory Retirement
"Scut had joined the Wraiths to be like the heroes of his childhood stories and even meet them.
Voort had been one of his heroes.
Voort had been a hero to somebody.
And Voort had looked Scut straight in the eye and told him he was a monster." - Voort "Piggy" saBinring, Mercy Kill
Clearly, I'm a sucker for overly emotional moments.
"Facts, exact numbers, reassurance. A Jedi seeks not these things." ~Kyp Durron, LotF: Fury (I think?)
Luke: "What's one of the first things you learned in training to be a Jedi?"
Ben: "Don't cut your own head off with your lightsaber."
Luke: "After that."
Ben: "Your eyes can deceive you. Be mindful of your feelings. Girls are fun but dangerous. Lando has extra cards up his sleeve."
Luke: "Well, the truth is in there somewhere…"
"But...it was so artistically done." ~Thrawn, Last Command
"That's one whaladon of a ship you've hooked, Kyle." Rogue Leader
Han: "Nobody move! This is a holdup!"
Han: "Oh right, my mistake. Nobody move! This is a coup!"
Nom Anor: "There are thousands of warriors out here. You are only one man!"
Ganner Rhysode: "I am only one Jedi."
Nom: "You're insane!"
Ganner: "No. I am Ganner. This threshold is mine. I claim it for my own. Bring on your thousands, one at a time or all in a rush. I don't give a damn. None shall pass."
"You may win the occasional battle against us, Vorrick, but the Empire will always strike back. That I promise you" Gilad Pellaeon
And last but not least- "ACKBAR IS BACK"
'Nobody would ever know how close Jai had come to giving in to the Dark Side. Nobody but Maks would ever know he had resisted at the end. In a few minutes they would both be dead, and to the universe, his choice would make no difference at all. To Jai Maruk, it meant everything. For the next thirty seconds he fought more beautifully than he had in his life, and when Asajj finally cut him down, he was smiling.' - Dark Rendezvous
But it was so artistically done. Grand Admiral Thrawn-The Last Command
Much better than Jacen's twisted mockery of it in Fury. Artfully done? Boo! Also no EU quotes you like thread is complete without it
"I am a computer technician, like my father before me."--Jinzler(?) Outbound Flight. I'm paraphrasing a bit here, but the sentiment stands. Just because we cannot waive a glowing sword does not mean that we shouldn't be proud of who we are and what we've accomplished.
Just because you keep soap in the pantry doesn't make it food. Children of the Jedi
"That's what attachment is, isn't it? It's not loving somebody. It's not marrying somebody. It's not having kids. It's being where, if something goes wrong, there's nothing left of you."
- Ben Skywalker
"Well, what happens if you need a diplomat who can also practice philosophy, fight with a lightsaber, and levitate small objects? Who else are you going to call but us?"
~ Mara Jade Skywalker
“Anyway, she's not my type. Too abrasive. And I don't like redheads.” ~Luke Skywalker
Ben: "Don't get killed, Dad. You know what it did to Fett. I don't want to end up like him."
Luke: "Filthy rich?"
Luke: "He kept calling me 'Skywalker'. Because I don't have a title—I'm not a Senator, I'm not a general any longer, I'm not an ambassador. He used the word like an insult."
Mara: "He could have called you 'Master'. Like I do sometimes."
Han: "New message?"
Leia: "From Ben."
Han: "Another letter filled with teenage talk, I assume. Girls, speeders, allowance woes-"
Han: "And Sith, of course."
Luke: “I know you find [Kyp] annoying…”
Corran: “Annoying? Either I’m covering my feelings, or you’re being kind. If I had any talent for telekinesis at all, I’d have strangled him with his own cloak.”
Corran: “Sorry, I suppose that would have been out of character for me-”
Mara: “Out of character to be so obvious. You need to be more subtle. Locate a partially blocked artery in his brain, then just pinch it off. Bang, he’s down and it’s over.”
"You're good Corran, but you're no Luke Skywalker." Wedge
Mara: "Stupid, stupid. A big fat diversion—the oldest trick on the list. And I fell for it like some dumb farm kid."
Luke: "Watch your language."
Luke: "Your feelings betray you, Ben."
Ben: "Betray me? Do they stab me in the back, or do they just give me a swift kick in the butt?"
Obi-Wan: "Not the last of the old Jedi, Luke. The first of the new."
