    Yoda probably has some of the best lines in the entire trilogy. From "Size matters not" to "Luminous beings are we...not this crude matter." the little guy is packed with philosophy and wisdom. What is your favorite line by Yoda in the OT?

    "Help you I can, yes, mmmm!" It's just the way he says it - makes me laugh every time!

    I like his "grumpy old men"-type line too: "All his life has he looked away... never his mind on where he was, what he was doin! Hmph! Adventure! Heh! Excitement! Heh!"

    The classic "Do or do not. There is no try."

    With "Judge me by my size do you?" coming in second.

    For humor:
    "Aw, can't get your ship out?"
    "Mine! Mine!" (banging R2 with his cane)
    And to go with that, "Mine! Or I will help you not!"
    (digging through stuff) "Ah!" (Luke takes it away) "No! Oh..."
    "Help you I can, yes, hmmm?"
    Anytime he laughs, especially after he gets the flashlight
    "How you get so big, eating food of this kind?"

    Later, "He is too old!"
    I love the way he says it, like he can't think of any other excuses not to train Luke.

    For wisdom and plain greatness:
    "Forever sleep I will."
    "Try not. Do or no not. There is no try."
    "That is why you failed."
    "Look I so old to young eyes?"

    Everything Yoda says is gold.

    "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."

    It just sounds so beautiful.

    Everything Yoda says is great, but my favorite lines from him are as follows:

    Oh your father...powerful Jedi was he

    Always in motion the future is

    When 900 years you reach, look as good you will not hmmm!

    Aw, cannot get your ship out!

    Oh, great warrior? Wars not make one great

    Onve you start down the dark path, forever dominate your destiny consume you it will

    Ohhh, Jedi Master...Yoda! You seek Yoda!

    and the best line in the whole Star Wars saga.....

    Come good food yes come...ohhoooho

    no really now...

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Told you I did, reckless is he- now, matters are worse.

    Through the Force, things you will see, other places. The future, the past, old friends long gone.

    Smacking R2 with his cane is the best part of the whole movie. :D Cute little Yoda, facinated with a flashlight.

    Then when Luke takes the food cake away "Aww, no..." that was adorable too. :D

    My favorite, for the sheer fun in it:

    "Take you to him I will, yes. but first -
    must eat. Come! Good food!"

    It's not just the line - but the delivery. Frank Oz did an incredible job with that original Muppet, even when compared to the new CG version.

    Some of my favorite Yoda lines are just his laughs, they are really funny. I like the way he says, "Aww, cannot get your ship out." but my favorite Yoda line in the OT would have to be "Hmmm.. great warrior, hmmmff.. wars not make one great.

    "Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will!"

    Very powerful line, not to mention Oz's great delivery.

    No one mentioned one of my VERY FAVORITE Yoda lines:

    "Always with you it cannot be done."

    So powerful!

    Although they are all great, my favourite line is:
    "mind what you have learned, help you it can"

    It is one of the longer lines. It's in my opinion one of the best lines in the saga.



    For my ally in the Force. And a
    powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. It's energy
    surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we...not this crude matter. You must
    feel the Force around you. Here, between you...me...the
    tree...the rock...everywhere! Yes, even between this land and that
    ship!
