    Ben: "In the future, I suggest that we only ever fight guys who set up their lairs in posh hotel suites. With sunlight and buffets and sanisteams and dancers."
    Luke: "Son, if you could figure out how to make that a reality, I'd make you the head of the Jedi Order."
    Ben: [shuddering] "Pretend I never said that."

    "If you start to feel evil, tell me as soon as possible. Don't wait and cut my hand off first." ―Ben Skywalker

    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?"

    Mara: "The Emperor would have considered you a sentimental fool who deserved to die."
    Corran: "I'll remember that next time I dance on his grave."

    Mara: "Luke, I don't want to discourage your curiosity, but I have to remind you, if something goes wrong, this is an exceptionally embarrassing way to die."
    Luke: "I'll trust you to improve the story. Luke Skywalker goes out in a blaze of glory in battle with a red devourer."

    "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

    "Absolutely not. You're not going to the dark side on my watch. Do it on Luke's." ―Corran Horn

    "Daala sees defiance, Daala crushes defiance. It's the same strategy she learned sitting on Tarkin's lap." ―Han Solo

    Finn: "You. Want. To. Put. The. Blaster. Down."
    Han Solo: "You. Want. To. Practice. Your. Jedi. Mind. Trick."

    "Kiss my Wookiee!" - Han Solo

    Han Solo: "Uh, everything's under control. Situation normal."
    Comm 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?"

    "You're good Corran, but you're no Luke Skywalker." Wedge. Antilles

    "Pretty. What do we blow up first?"
    Myn Donos, to Wedge Antilles

    Wedge: "Colonel Fel."
    Jag: "Yes, Uncle?"
    Wedge: "You should return to the dais and greet those people you bypassed. They're fairly important."
    Jag: "They're politicians."
    Wedge: "The impression is that you skipped them because they are not human."
    Jag: "If they believe I did not greet them because they are not human, they are stupid. I did not greet them because they are politicians."
    Wedge Antilles and Jagged Fel

    Jaina: "Jag, do you even know how to use a lightsaber?"
    Jag: "I know Lesson One. Don't grab the glowy end."
    Jaina Solo, to Jagged Fel, on Kashyyyk during the Second Galactic Civil War

    "Darling. I love you, you are my life and my light. If you ever do this to me again I will vape you where you stand."
    Mara Jade Skywalker, to Luke Skywalker, on pregnancy

    Padmé: "Politics is an ancient and noble calling. Without politicians our societies would descend into anarchy and chaos."
    Obi-Wan: "I thought they'd done that already. It certainly looked that way the last time I was in the Senate."
    Padmé: "I'm not claiming the system is perfect. Obviously there's room for improvement, when—"
    Obi-Wan: "A great deal of room, yes. Enough room to house about a dozen Republic warships, I'd say. Possibly two dozen. Maybe three."
    Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padmé Amidala

    I could go on. I have whole pages saved.

    Anything by Ben Skywalker, seriously. Such a snarker. And lots of Wedge Antilles.

    Thrackan: "All right. General Antilles, acting as Chief of State and Minister of War for Corellia, I hereby order you to communicate with your daughter Syal and do your genuine best to persuade her to follow whatever course of action I recommend to her. Is that clear enough?"
    Wedge: "Absolutely."
    Thrackan: "And?"
    Wedge: "Go to hell."
    Thrackan: "Antilles, you've refused a direct order given during a military crisis, and I have it on record. Should I choose to, I can have security agents haul you away right now. I can conduct your trial within the hour and have you executed by morning."
    Wedge: "Of course you can. You could also have me assassinated in a time of peace for having nicer hair than you. If I worried about that sort of thing, I'd never get any sleep."
    ―Thracken Sal-Solo and Wedge Antilles

    Who I am is not important, my message is.- Revan

    What greater weapon is there than to turn an enemy to your cause? To use their own knowledge against them?- Bastilla Shan

    Only I have been both Jedi and Sith and found clarity in the Force.- Revan

    My time here is ended. Take what I have taught you and use it well.- Darth Revan

    You, Revan, are the single greatest warrior of this age, and any battle we fight will bring me honor.- Canderous Ordo

    I am the Dark Lord who will restore the Sith to glory. They call me Bane.- Darth Bane

    Power is its own purpose. To share it is to dilute it. You delude yourself, pretender.- Darth Bane

    Equality is a lie…A myth to appease the masses.- Darth Bane

    You are forever lost to the worlds you knew.- Vergere

    Everything I tell you is a lie. Every question I ask is a trick. You will find no truth in me.- Vergere ^:)^

    The Order can't wait for a great Jedi Knight to lead it. That's what everyone thought I was, and when I died, too much died with me. Don't make the same mistake I did, don't let anyone push you into that. Every Jedi has to be his own light, because the light shouldn't go out when one Jedi dies.- Anakin Solo

    If you seek to aid everyone that suffers in the galaxy, you will only weaken yourself… and weaken them. It is the internal struggles, when fought and won on their own, that yield the strongest rewards. You stole that struggle from them, cheapened it. If you care for others, then dispense with pity and sacrifice and recognize the value in letting them fight their own battles. And when they triumph, they will be even stronger for the victory.- Kreia ^:)^

    I was the greatest Dark Lord of the Sith. I am Exar Kun.- Exar Kun

    Exar Kun, because of you, the Sith will never die.- Marka Ragnos

    For Anakin, there is nothing more important than friendship.- Obi-Wan Kenobi

    You are so far less now than what you were, you are more than half machine, you are like a painter gone blind, a composer gone deaf.- Darth Vader

    I know what I don't want to do—I don't want to be part of an order or a select group. I don't want to be looked to as the guiding light of the new fealty, and I don't want to be surrounded by students who'll ask more of me than I can explain. Most of all, I don't want to be an object of fascination or admiration, because that'll only distract me from what I really need to learn. I don't have dreams of being a lightsaber master or an ace starfighter pilot, and I'm not on a campaign to change anyone or anything, except myself, maybe, just to clear away some of the confusion that's built up.- Jacen Solo :_| Oh Jacen, what happened to you?

    And of course I have to include these:

    None of the stories people tell about me can change who I really am. -Luke Skywalker

    The stronger you become in the Force, the more you can do, the more that's expected of you, and the less your life belongs to you. -Luke Skywalker

    This story happened a long time ago in a galaxy far,
    far away. It is already over. Nothing can be done to
    change it.
    It is a story of love and loss, brotherhood and betrayal,
    courage and sacrifice, and the death of dreams. It is a story
    of the blurred line between our best and our worst.
    It is the story of the end of an age.
    A strange thing about stories-
    Though this all happened so long ago and so far away
    that words cannot describe the time or the distance, it is
    also happening right now. Right here.
    It is happening as you read these words.
    This is how twenty-five millennia come to a close. Cor-
    rupption and treachery have crushed a thousand years of
    peace. This is not just the end of a republic; night is falling
    on civilization itself.
    This is the twilight of the Jedi.
    The end starts now.

    "a commodity which, after hydrogen and stupidity, was the most plentiful in the galaxy" - Corran Horn on the TIE Fighter cockpit and ion engine assembly.

    This made the book even more epic. I knew this book was going to be good when I got it and this proved me right. That is the best page in all of Star Wars. This made the book meaningful, that it would change your life.

    Han: "Well, see, it happened this way: I won a planet in a card game and really wanted to see it badly. Meanwhile, the woman I love was planning to run off with another man, so I convinced her to take a short trip with me. Only when we got here, I found the skies full of warships that shot me down—because no one bothered to warn me that the planet was interdicted—and after we crashed, a bunch of witches decided to start a war over who gets the wreckage of my ship. So I'll tell you, Luke, I've had a really bad week so far. Now, to top it all off, I suppose you're going to lecture me, or arrest me, or beat me up. So tell me, how is your week going?"
    Luke: "About the same."

    This is what it is like to be Anakin Skywalker. Forever. (end of ROTS novelization)

    "What do you know of your destiny, Obi-Wan?"
    "Infinite sadness," he said with a smile. (from Outbound Flight?)

    Luke: "What's a duck?" (either the novelization of ANH or Splinter of the Mind's Eye, I forget)

    "Sometimes swirling destiny is just swirling destiny." (along with pretty much anything Jolee Bindo says)

    Organic meatbags (and other things said by HK-47)

    Pretty much any book involving X-Wing pilots, particularly Wedge, Corran, Jaina and Jag.

    Kyp: "Still playing the philosopher, Zero-One?"
    Kyp: "It was what you might call 'a hint.' Stop gazing at your…central interface terminal and tend to astronavigation. We should be coming up on our hyperspace coordinates before long."

    "That's not what the Empire would have done Commander. What the Empire would have done was build a super-colossal Yuuzhan Vong-killing battle machine. They would have called it the Nova Colossus or the Galaxy Destructor or the Nostril of Palpatine or something equally grandiose. They would have spent billions of credits employed thousands of contractors and subcontractors and equipped it with the latest in death-dealing technology. And you know what would have happened It wouldn't have worked. They'd forget to bolt down a metal plate over an access hatch leading to the main reactors or some other mistake and a hotshot enemy pilot would have dropped a bomb down there and blow the whole thing up. Now that's what the Empire would have done." -Han

    Imperial Sourcebook:

    "There are three ways to defeat your enemy. The first, and most obvious, is to better him in a trial of force. The best way is to have him destroy himself; few enemies are so obliging. The middle way is to destroy your enemy from within. Judicious application of the middle way shall make your blows more effective if you later take the way of force. From the middle way it is also possible to push your enemy onto the path of self-destruction."--Uueg Tching of Kitel Phard, 54th Emperor of Atrisia
