Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983) Poster

Anthony Daniels: C-3PO



  • C-3PO : His high exaltedness, the Great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately.

    Han Solo : Good, I hate long waits.

    C-3PO : You will therefore be taken to the Dune Sea, and cast into the pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all-powerful Sarlaac.

    Han Solo : Doesn't sound so bad.

    C-3PO : In his belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years.

    Han Solo : On second thought, let's pass on that, huh?

  • C-3PO : I'm rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

  • EV-9D9 : Ah, new acquisitions! You are a protocol droid, are you not?

    C-3PO : I am C-3PO, human/cyborg...

    EV-9D9 : [cuts him off]  Yes or no will do.

    C-3PO : Umm... yes.

    EV-9D9 : How many languages do you speak?

    C-3PO : I am fluent in over six million forms of communication, and can readily...

    EV-9D9 : [cuts him off again]  Splendid! We have been without an interpreter since our master got angry with our last protocol droid and disintegrated him.

    C-3PO : Disintegrated?

  • C-3PO : I do believe they think I am some sort of god.

    Han Solo : Well, why don't you use your divine influence and get us out of this?

    C-3PO : I beg your pardon General Solo, but that just wouldn't be proper.

    Han Solo : Proper?

    C-3PO : It's against my programming to impersonate a deity.

  • C-3PO : At last, Master Luke's come to rescue me!

    Bib Fortuna : Master.

    [Jabba wakes up with a start] 

    Bib Fortuna : May I present Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight?

    Jabba the Hutt : [in Huttese; subtitled]  I told you not to admit him!

    Luke : I must be allowed to speak.

    Bib Fortuna : He must be allowed to speak.

    Jabba the Hutt : [grabs Bib Fortuna; in Huttese]  You weak minded fool! He's using an old Jedi mind trick.

    [Jabba shoves Bib Fortuna aside] 

    Luke : You will bring Captain Solo and the Wookiee to me.

    [Jabba laughs] 

    Jabba the Hutt : [in Huttese]  Your mind powers will not work on me, boy.

    Luke : Nevertheless, I'm taking Captain Solo and his friends with me. You can either profit by this or be destroyed. It's your choice, but I warn you not to underestimate my powers.

    Jabba the Hutt : [in Huttese]  There will be no bargain, my young Jedi. I shall enjoy watching you die.

  • 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?

  • C-3PO : He says the scouts are going to show us the quickest way to the shield generator.

    Han Solo : Good. How far is it? Ask him.

    [3PO turns to ask, Han pulls him back] 

    Han Solo : We need some fresh supplies too.

    [3PO turns again; Han pulls him back again] 

    Han Solo : Try and get our weapons back.

    [and again] 

    Han Solo : Hurry up, will ya? Haven't got all day!

  • C-3PO : R2, why did you have to be so brave?

  • C-3PO : Wonderful. We are now a part of the tribe.

    [an Ewok hugs Han] 

    Han Solo : Just what I always wanted.

  • Luke : Threepio, tell them if they don't do as you wish, you'll become angry and use your magic.

    C-3PO : But, Master Luke, what magic? I couldn't possibly...

    Luke : Just tell them.

  • C-3PO : [to R2D2]  If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short circuit.

  • EV-9D9 : Ah, good! New acquisitions. You are a protocol droid, are you not?

    C-3PO : I am C-3PO, Human...

    EV-9D9 : Yes or no will do.

    C-3PO : Oh. Well, yes.

  • C-3PO : Your Royal Highness.

    Princess Leia : But these are my friends. 3PO, tell them they must be set free.

    [C-3PO speaks with the Ewoks, they listen and shake their heads negatively] 

    Han Solo : Somehow I got the feeling that didn't work very much.

  • [about the rebels attack plan] 

    C-3PO : Exciting is hardly the word I would choose.

  • C-3PO : What could possibly have come over Master Luke? Is it something I did? He never expressed any unhappiness with my work.

  • C-3PO : I never knew I had it in me.

  • C-3PO : I have decided that we shall stay here.

  • Darth Vader : [deleted scene; Darth Vader and Moff Jerjerrod talk]  Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.

    Moff Jerjerrod : I tell you, this station will be operational as planned.

    Darth Vader : The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.

    Moff Jerjerrod : But he asks the impossible.


    Moff Jerjerrod : I need more men.

    Darth Vader : Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives.

    Moff Jerjerrod : [scared]  The Emperor's coming here?

    Darth Vader : That is correct, Commander. And he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.

    Moff Jerjerrod : We shall double our efforts.

    Darth Vader : I hope so, Commander, for your sake.

    [Jerjerrod gulps] 

    Darth Vader : The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

    [he and Jerjerrod walk away. Vader goes to his room and seats himself, communicating to Luke using the Force] 

    Darth Vader : Luke... Luke... Join me and the Dark Side of the Force... my son, it is the only way... Luke... Luke...

    [cut to Tatooine, where Luke constructs his new lightsaber and tests it out. R2-D2 beeps something as C-3PO talks to himself] 

    C-3PO : What a forsaken place this is! Why couldn't that bounty hunter have taken Captain Solo to a more... pleasant environment?

    [R2-D2 comes out of the small cave and beeps something] 

    C-3PO : We're leaving? But, what about Master Luke?

    [R2 beeps again] 

    C-3PO : I thought he was going to rescue Captain Solo?

    [R2 beeps and starts rolling away] 

    C-3PO : You mean, we're going to that horrible fortress alone?

    [follows after R2, who beeps again] 

    C-3PO : We're doomed.

    [cut to another scene where R2 and 3PO are making their way toward Jabba's Palace] 

    C-3PO : [R2 beeps a question]  Of course I'm frightened, and you should be, too. Lando Calrissian and poor Chewbacca never return from this awful place.

    [R2 beeps] 

    C-3PO : Don't be so sure. If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short-circuit.

    [R2 sounds scared] 

  • C-3PO : Toronto? Gosh.
