Quotes 

  • Princess Leia : [annoyed]  Why, you stuck up... half-witted... scruffy-looking... Nerf-herder!

    Han Solo : Who's scruffy-looking?

  • 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.

  • C-3PO : Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.

    Han Solo : Never tell me the odds.

  • 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 has decided to go searching for Luke] 

    Echo Base Officer : Your Tauntaun will freeze before you reach the first marker!

    Han Solo : Then I'll see you in Hell!

  • 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.

  • C-3PO : [Interrupting Han and Leia kissing]  Sir. Sir, I've isolated the reverse, power flux coupling.

    Han Solo : Thank you. Thank you very much.

    C-3PO : Oh you're perfectly welcome, sir.

  • Princess Leia : You're not actually going IN to an asteroid field?

    Han Solo : They'd be crazy to follow us, wouldn't they?

  • [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 : You said you wanted to be around when I made a mistake, well, this could be it, sweetheart.

    Princess Leia : I take it back.

  • Han Solo : [cutting open his dead Tauntaun and shoving Luke inside]  This may smell bad, kid, but it'll keep you warm until I get the shelter up... Ugh. And I thought they smelled bad on the *outside*.

  • 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.

  • [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!

  • 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!

  • [first lines] 

    Luke : Echo Three to Echo Seven. Han, old buddy, do you read me?

    Han Solo : Loud and clear, kid. What's up?

    Luke : Well, I finished my circle. I don't pick up any life readings.

    Han Solo : There isn't enough life on this ice cube to fill a space cruiser. Sensors are placed. I'm going back.

    Luke : Right. I'll see you shortly. There's a meteorite that hit the ground near here. I want to check it out. It won't take long.

  • Princess Leia : The cave is collapsing.

    Han Solo : This is no cave.

  • Han Solo : [C-3PO won't stop complaining]  Either shut him up or shut him down!

  • 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!

  • [heading into a cave on a large asteroid] 

    Princess Leia : I hope you know what you're doing.

    Han Solo : Yeah, me too.

  • C-3PO : Excuse me sir, but might I inquire as to what's going on?

    Han Solo : Why not?

    C-3PO : Impossible man.

  • Lando : I had no choice. They arrived right before you did. I'm sorry.

    Han Solo : I'm sorry too.

  • [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?

  • Han Solo : How ya feeling kid? You don't look so bad to me. You look strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark.

    Luke : Thanks to you.

    Han Solo : That's two you owe me junior.

  • [the asteroid quakes] 

    C-3PO : Sir, it's quite possible this asteroid is not entirely stable.

    Han Solo : Not entirely stable. I'm glad you're here to tell us these things. Chewie! Take the Professor in back and plug him into the hyperdrive!

  • Han Solo : No time to discuss this as a committee.

    Princess Leia : I am not a committee!

  • [evacuating the Rebel Hoth base] 

    Han Solo : [to C-3PO]  Hurry up, goldenrod! Or you're gonna be a permanent resident!

  • Han Solo : What's going on... Buddy?

    Lando : You're being put into carbon-freeze.

  • C-3PO : Sir, If I may venture an opinion...

    Han Solo : I'm not really interested in your opinion 3PO.

  • Han Solo : [after being tortured]  I feel terrible.

  • Princess Leia : I love you.

    Han Solo : I know.

  • 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.

  • Han Solo : It's not my fault.

  • Lando : What are you doing here?

    Han Solo : Ah, repairs. I was hoping you could help me out.

    Lando : What have you done to my ship?

    Han Solo : YOUR ship? Hey, remember you lost her to me, fair and square.

  • Han Solo : Deck officer! Deck officer!

  • [C-3PO is broken almost beyond repair] 

    Lando : Having trouble with your droid?

    Han Solo : No, no problem. Why?

  • [trying to fix the hyperdrive] 

    Han Solo : Horizontal boosters. Alluvial dampers? Ow! That's not it, bring me the Hydrospanner. I don't know how we're going to get out of this one.

    [the ship is hit, causing the tool box to fall on Han] 

    Han Solo : OW! Chewie!

  • Han Solo : [when a toolbox falls on his head]  OOOOW!

  • Lando : [walks into a room with Han, Leia, and Chewbacca in it]  Sorry, am I interrupting anything?

    Princess Leia : Not really.

    Lando : [smiles]  You look absolutely beautiful. You truly belong here with us among the clouds.

    [Han looks jealous] 

    Princess Leia : [bitterly]  Thank you.

    Lando : Would you join us for a little refreshment? Everyone's invited, of course.

    [looks at the broken C-3PO] 

    Lando : Having trouble with your droid?

    Han Solo : No, no problem. Why?

    [he and Leia walk away as Lando glances at 3PO again then follows with Chewie] 

  • Princess Leia : Would it help if I got out and pushed?

    Han Solo : It might!

  • Han Solo : Get out of here, Lando.

    Lando : Shut up and listen. Vader has agreed that turn Leia and Chewie over to me.

    Han Solo : Over to you?

    Lando : They'll have to stay here at least, they'll be safe.

    Leia : What about Han?

    Lando : Vader's giving him to the bounty hunter.

    Leia : Vader wants us all dead.

    Lando : He doesn't want you at all. At least, after somebody call... Skywalker.

    Han Solo : Luke?

    Lando : Lord Vader has set a trap for him.

    Leia : And we're the bait.

    Lando : Yeah? Well, he's on his way.

    Han Solo : Perfect. You fixed us all real good, didn't you? My friend?

    [Han punches Lando. The two friends are instantly engaged in a frantic close-quarters fight. The guards hit him with their rifle butts and he flies across the room. Chewie growls and starts for the guards. They point their laser weapons at him, but Lando stops them] 

    Lando : Stop! I've done all I care. I'm sorry I couldn't do better, but I got my own problems.

    Han Solo : Yeah... You're a real hero.

    [Lando and the guards leave] 

  • C-3PO : [as Chewie tries to fight off the imperials and free Han]  Oh, no! No, no, no! Stop! Stop!

    Han Solo : No! Stop, Chewie, stop! Stop, Chewie!

    C-3PO : Oh, yes! Stop, please! I am not ready to die!

    Han Solo : Chewie! Listen to me! 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?

    Princess Leia : What about Han?
