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.

  • 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] 

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

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

  • 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.

  • [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 : 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • [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 : I love you.

    Han Solo : I know.

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

    Princess Leia : I am not a committee!

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • [Amid the violence of colliding asteroids] 

    Princess Leia : [to Han Solo]  You don't have to do this to impress me.

  • [Han reveals his clever plan of escape] 

    Princess Leia : You have your moments. Not many of them, but you do have them.

  • 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...

  • [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!

  • [Leia and Han prepares to escape in the Falcon] 

    Princess Leia : This bucket of bolts's never gonna get us past that blockade.

  • Princess Leia : I'll be back.

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

    Princess Leia : [cooly]  Thank you.

  • [the storm troopers are taken prisoner by Calrissian's men] 

    Lando : [to Lobot, his aide]  Well done. Hold them in 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!

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

    Princess Leia : Yes, very friendly...

  • 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.

  • 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?

    [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.

  • Han Solo : Get out of here, Lando.

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

    Han Solo : Over to you?

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

    Princess Leia : What about Han?

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

    Princess Leia : Vader wants us all dead.

    Lando : No, he doesn't want you at all! He's after somebody called, uh... Skywalker.

    Han Solo : Luke?

    Lando : Lord Vader has set a trap for him.

    Princess 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 can. I'm sorry I couldn't do better, but I've got my own problems. I've already stuck my neck out farther than I should.

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

    [Lando and the guards leave] 

    Princess Leia : You certainly have a way with people.
