Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Princess Leia: Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.
Han Solo: Who's scruffy-looking?

[a tremor knocks Leia into Solo's arms]
Princess Leia: Let go.
Han Solo: Shh.
Princess Leia: Let go, please.
Han Solo: Don't get excited.
Princess Leia: Captain, being held by you isn't quite enough to get me excited.
Han Solo: Sorry sweetheart. I haven't got time for anything else.

Han Solo: Afraid I was gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?
Princess Leia: I'd just as soon kiss a Wookiee.
Han Solo: I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss.

Han Solo: Well Princess, it looks like you managed to keep me here a while longer.
Princess Leia: I had nothing to do with it. General Rieekan thinks it's dangerous for anyone to leave the system until they've activated the energy shield.
Han Solo: That's a good story. I think you just can't bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight.
Princess Leia: I don't know where you get your delusions, laser brain.
[Chewbacca laughs]
Han Solo: Laugh it up, fuzzball.

Princess Leia: I'll be back.

Han Solo: You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake, well, this could be it, sweetheart.
Princess Leia: I take it back.

Princess Leia: [to Han] Well, I guess you don't know everything about women yet.
[Leia gives Luke a kiss in front of Han]

[heading into a cave on a large asteroid]
Princess Leia: I hope you know what you're doing.
Han Solo: Yeah, me too.

[Han reveals his clever plan of escape]
Princess Leia: You have your moments. Not many of them, but you do have them.

Princess Leia: You're not actually going IN to an asteroid field?
Han Solo: They'd be crazy to follow us, wouldn't they?

[Amid the violence of colliding asteroids]
Princess Leia: [to Han Solo] You don't have to do this to impress me.

[the Millennium Falcon, under siege, won't start]
Princess Leia: [sarcastic] Would it help if I got out and pushed?
Han Solo: [also sarcastic] It might!

Han Solo: Hey, Your Worship, I'm only trying to help.
Princess Leia: Would you please stop calling me that?
Han Solo: Sure, Leia.
Princess Leia: You make it so difficult sometimes.
Han Solo: I do, I really do. You could be a little nicer, though. Come on, admit it. Sometimes you think I'm all right.
Princess Leia: Occasionally, maybe... when you aren't acting like a scoundrel.
Han Solo: Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.
[Han starts to massage Leia's hand]
Princess Leia: Stop that.
Han Solo: Stop what?
Princess Leia: [timidly] Stop that. My hands are dirty.
Han Solo: My hands are dirty, too. What are you afraid of?
Princess Leia: Afraid?
Han Solo: You're trembling.
Princess Leia: I'm not trembling.
[Han moves in closer]
Han Solo: You like me because I'm a scoundrel. There aren't enough scoundrels in your life.
Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm nice men.
Princess Leia: No, you're not. You're...
[they kiss]

[Han heads out of the Asteroids toward a Star Destroyer]
C-3PO: The odds of successfully surviving an attack on an Imperial Star Destroyer are approximately...
Leia: Shut up!

Han Solo: No time to discuss this as a committee.
Princess Leia: I am not a committee!

[Leia and Han prepares to escape in the Falcon]
Princess Leia: This bucket of bolts's never gonna get us past that blockade.

Han Solo: [as Chewie tries to fight off the imperials and free Han] No! Stop, Chewie, stop! Chewie! Chewie this won't help me! Hey! Save your strength. There'll be another time. The Princess. You have to take care of her. You hear me? Huh?
[Leia and Han share a passionate kiss before Han is dragged towards the freezing chamber by the imperials]
Princess Leia: I love you.
Han Solo: I know.

[the storm troopers are taken prisoner by Calrissian's men]
Lando: [to Lobot, his aide] Well done. Get them to the security tower, and keep it quiet. Move.
[Lando's aide and their men walk off with the troops as Lando hands Leia the imperials' weapons and starts taking off Chewie's cuffs]
Leia: What do you think you're doing?
Lando: We're getting out of here.
C-3PO: I knew all along. Had to be a mistake.
Leia: [angrily] Do you think that after what you did to Han that we're going to trust you?
[Chewie grabs Lando by the throat]
Lando: [choking] I had no choice!
C-3PO: What are you doing? Trust him, trust him!
Leia: Oh, well, we understand, don't we, Chewie. You had "no choice".
Lando: Just trying to help...
Leia: We don't need any of your help!
Lando: [gasps] Han! Ha- Ha...
Leia: What?
Lando: HAN!
C-3PO: It sounds like Han!
Lando: [gasping] There's still a chance to save Han! At the east... platform!
Leia: Chewie!
[Leia gets Chewie to drop Lando]
C-3PO: I'm terribly sorry about all this. After all, he's only a Wookiee!

Leia: They're getting closer.
Han Solo: Oh, yeah? Watch this.
[he throws the hyperdrive lever, the engine sputters and dies]
Leia: Watch what?
Han Solo: I think we're in trouble.
C-3PO: If I may say so, sir, I noticed earlier the hyperdrive motivator has been damaged. It's impossible to go to lightspeed.
Han Solo: We're in trouble.

Leia: I thought you knew this person.
Chewbacca: [Chewie barks something to Han]
Han Solo: Well, that was a long time ago, I'm sure he's forgotten about that.

[On the asteroid]
Princess Leia: I have a bad feeling about this...

C-3PO: [about Lando] : Well, he seems very friendly.
Princess Leia: Yes, very friendly...

Lando: [to Leia] You look absolutely beautiful. You truly belong here with us among the clouds.
Princess Leia: [cooly] Thank you.

Luke: [clinging to an antennae below Cloud City] Leia... Hear me, Leia...
Princess Leia: [in the Falcon] Luke... We've got to go back.
Lando: What?
Princess Leia: I know where Luke is!

General Rieekan: I don't think we can protect two transports at a time.
Princess Leia: It's risky but we can't hold out much longer. We have no choice.
General Rieekan: Launch patrols.
Princess Leia: Evacuate remaining ground staff.

Princess Leia: All troop carriers will assemble at the north entrance. The heavy transport ships will leave as soon as they're loaded. Only two fighter escorts per ship. The energy shield can only be opened for a short time, so you'll have to stay very close to your transports.
Derek 'Hobbie' Klivian: Two fighters against a Star Destroyer?
Princess Leia: The ion cannon will fire several shots to make sure any enemy ships will be out of your flight path. When you've gotten past the energy shield, proceed directly to the rendezvous point. Understood? Good luck.

[in the Asteroid Field]
Princess Leia: We're going to get pulverized if we stay out here much longer.
Han Solo: I'm not going to argue with that.
C-3PO: Pulverized?

Princess Leia: Some day you're gonna be wrong, I just hope I'm there to see it.

Princess Leia: [to Han] You certainly have a way with people...

Princess Leia: The cave is collapsing.
Han Solo: This is no cave.

Princess Leia: Luke! Luke! Don't! It's a trap! It's a trap!

Princess Leia: Han, we need you.
Han Solo: We need?
Princess Leia: Yes.
Han Solo: Well, what about YOU need?
Princess Leia: I need? I don't know what you are talking about.
Han Solo: You probably don't.
Princess Leia: And what precisely am I supposed to know?
Han Solo: Come on you want me to stay because of the way you feel about me.
Princess Leia: Yes, you're great help to us you're a natural leader.
Han Solo: No! That's not it. Come on.
[a rebel worker goes inbetween them]
Han Solo: A-ha! Come on!
Princess Leia: You're imagining things.
Han Solo: Am I? Then why are you following me afraid I was gonna leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?
Princess Leia: I'd just as soon kiss a wookiee.
Han Solo: I could arrange that!
[Han walks away]
Han Solo: You could use a good kiss!


Star Wars (1977)
Princess Leia: No! Alderaan is peaceful! We have no weapons, you can't possibly...
Governor Tarkin: [impatiently] You would prefer another target, a military target? Then name the system! I grow tired of asking this so it will be the last time: *Where* is the rebel base?
Princess Leia: ...Dantooine. They're on Dantooine.
Governor Tarkin: There. You see, Lord Vader, she can be reasonable. Continue with the operation; you may fire when ready.
Princess Leia: WHAT?
Governor Tarkin: You're far too trusting. Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration - but don't worry; we will deal with your rebel friends soon enough.

General Willard: You're safe. When we heard about Alderaan, we feared the worst.
Princess Leia: We have no time for sorrows, Commander. You must use the information in this R-2 unit to help plan the attack- it's our only hope.

Princess Leia: I don't know who you are or where you came from, but from now on you'll do as I tell you, okay?

Princess Leia: General Kenobi. Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to convey my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack, and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
[pause]
Obi-Wan: [to Luke] You must learn the ways of the Force, if you're to come with me to Alderaan.
Luke: Alderaan? I'm not going to Alderaan, I've gotta get *home*, it's late, I'm in for it as it is!
Obi-Wan: I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I'm getting too old for this sort of thing.
Luke: Look, I can't get involved. I've got work to do. It's not that I like the Empire; I hate it, but there's nothing I can do about it right now... It's all such a long way from here.
Obi-Wan: That's your uncle talking.

Luke: I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you.
Princess Leia: You're who?

[repeated line]
Princess Leia: Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope.

Princess Leia: Someone has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute, fly boy.

Princess Leia: Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.
Governor Tarkin: Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life.
Princess Leia: I'm surprised that you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself.
Governor Tarkin: Princess Leia, before your execution, I'd like you to join me for a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now.
Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.
Governor Tarkin: Not after we demonstrate the capabilities of this station.

Princess Leia: Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Han Solo: Look, Your Worshipfulness, let's get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.
Princess Leia: It's a wonder you're still alive.
[Pushing past Chewbacca]
Princess Leia: Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?
Han Solo: No reward is worth this.

[Princess Leia gets her first look at the Millennium Falcon]
Princess Leia: You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought.

Princess Leia: It's not over yet.
Han Solo: It is for me, sister. Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess. I expect to be well paid. I'm in it for the money.
Princess Leia: You needn't worry about your reward. If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive.
[to Luke]
Princess Leia: Your friend is quite the mercenary. I wonder if he really cares about anything. Or anybody.
[she stalks out]
Luke: [calling after her] I care.
[to Han]
Luke: So, what do you think of her, Han?
Han Solo: I'm tryin' not to, kid.
Luke: Good.
Han Solo: [baiting him] Still, she's got a lot of spirit. I don't know, whaddya think? You think a princess and a guy like me...
Luke: [quickly] No.

Han Solo: Not a bad bit of rescuing, huh? You know, sometimes I amaze even myself.
Princess Leia: That doesn't sound too hard.

Princess Leia: Your friend is quite a mercenary. I wonder if he really cares about anything... or anybody.
Luke: I care.

Princess Leia: They let us go. It was the only reason for the ease of our escape.
Han Solo: Easy? You call that easy?
Princess Leia: They're tracking us.
Han Solo: Not this ship, sister.
Princess Leia: [sighs] At least the information in R2 is still intact.
Han Solo: What's so important? What's he carrying?
Princess Leia: The technical readouts of that battle station. I only hope that when the data's analyzed a weakness can be found. It's not over yet.

Han Solo: What kept you?
Princess Leia: We, uh, ran into some old friends.

Princess Leia: Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold. The Imperial Senate will not sit still for this. When they hear you've attacked a diplomatic...
Darth Vader: Don't act so surprised, Your Highness. You weren't on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you.
Princess Leia: I don't know what you're talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan...
Darth Vader: You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away!

Princess Leia: [to Han] I knew there was more to you than money!

[Han, Luke, Leia and Chewie land in the trash compactor]
Han Solo: Garbage chute. Really wonderful idea. What an incredible smell you've discovered! Let's get out of here! Get away from there...
Luke: No, wait...!
[Han draws his laser pistol and fires at the hatch. The laser bolt ricochets wildly around the small room. Everyone dives for cover in the garbage as the bolt finally explodes]
Luke: Will you forget it? I already tried it. It's magnetically sealed!
Princess Leia: Put that thing away, you're gonna get us all killed!
Han Solo: Absolutely, Your Worship. Look, I had everything under control until you led us down here! Now it's not going to take them long to figure out what happened to us.
Princess Leia: It could be worse.
[Garbage creature growls]
Han Solo: It's worse.

[Luke and Leia are about to swing over the hole - Leia gives Luke a kiss]
Princess Leia: For luck.

Princess Leia: Looks like you've managed to cut off our only escape route.
Han Solo: [sarcastically] Maybe you'd like it back in your cell, your highness.

[Han is chasing some Stormtroopers]
Princess Leia: He certainly has courage...
Luke: Yeah, but what good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on!
[Luke and Leia run off in the opposite direction]

Princess Leia: This is some rescue! You came in here, but didn't you have a plan for getting out?
Han Solo: [indicating Luke] He's the brains, sweetheart!

Princess Leia: [as the ships approach] Here they come.
Luke: They're coming in too fast!

Han Solo: [after Leia blasts a vent] What the hell are you doing?
Princess Leia: Well somebody has to save our skins. Into the garbage, fly-boy!

Han Solo: Can't get out that way.
Princess Leia: Looks like you've managed to cut off our only escape route.
Han Solo: [sarcastic] Maybe you'd like it back in your cell, your Highness.


Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Princess Leia: [to Wicket the Ewok] You're a jittery little thing, aren't you?

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.

[last lines]
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,
[pause]
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.
[whispering]
Princess Leia: He's my brother.

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.

[Referring to Vader]
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.

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: [to Han] Who have they found to pull that off?
General Madine: General Solo, is your strike team assembled?

Princess Leia: General, count me in.

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.

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

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

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

Princess Leia: [Leia has been captured by Jabba] We have powerful friends. You're going to regret this.
Jabba the Hutt: [in Huttese] I'm sure.
[Jabba sticks out his tongue to lick Leia's face]

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.


Thumb Wars: The Phantom Cuticle (1999) (TV)
Princess Bunhead: You'll never get away with this, Black Helmet Man! You are bad! You are bad and we are good! Your badness will be the end of you, and our goodness will be our triumph! Bad is bad - good is good! Bad-bad-good-bad! Good-good-bad-good, bad! Good.

Princess Bunhead: I escaped somehow. Let's go.

Annoying Pilot: Go, Princess, and I will stay and be killed in your place.
Princess Bunhead: Fine.
Annoying Pilot: Waiting to be killed... waiting to be killed.

Prissypeo: They'll kill us for sure! We need something we can trade for our lives!
Beboobeep: Beboobeep!
Prissypeo: Yes, the Princess! What a marvelous idea!
[Later... ]
Thumbtrooper: This is the droid that promised to deliver her!
Princess Bunhead: What?
Prissypeo: Bunhead's on to us! Let's get out of here!

Annette: You see, this is the 50's, and nice girls don't go all the way.
Frankie: So we're so horny, we'll laugh at anything that even sounds dirty.

Annette: Get your meat hooks off of him, Your Highness, he's my guy!
Princess Leia: Wait a minute! You got me all wrong! I'm no cheap tramp from tomorrow! I'm no space slut!

No matter how different we appear, we're all the same in our struggle against the powers of evil and darkness. I hope that this day will always be a day of joy, in which we can reconfirm our dedication and our courage. And more than anything else, our love for one another. This is the promise of the Tree of Life.

Princess Leia Organa: [sung to the tune of the star wars theme] A day that takes us through the darkness/a day that leads us into light/a day that we celebrate/the LIIIIIIIIIGGGGGGGHHHHHTTTT!"

General Rahm Kota: He's at last one with the Force.
Juno Eclipse: You always knew who he was, didn't you?
General Rahm Kota: I suspected, yes.
Juno Eclipse: Then why did you help him? After all the things he had done?
General Rahm Kota: When he came to me in the bar, among all his dark thoughts, I glimpsed one bright spot. One beautiful thing he held onto, even at the end.
Juno Eclipse: What?
General Rahm Kota: You.
