Quotes 

  • Darth Vader : Calrissian. Take the princess and the Wookie to my ship.

    Lando : You said they'd be left at the city under my supervision!

    Darth Vader : I am altering the deal. Pray I don't alter it any further.

  • C-3PO : Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

    Darth Vader : Well, Calrissian, did he survive?

    Lando : Yes, he's alive, and in perfect hibernation.

    Darth Vader : He's all yours, bounty hunter. Reset the chamber for Skywalker.

  • [last lines] 

    Lando : Princess, we'll find Han. I promise.

    Luke : Chewie, I'll be waiting for your signal. Take care, you two. May the force be with you.

  • Lando : How you doin' Chewbacca? Still hanging around with this loser?

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

    Han Solo : I'm sorry 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!

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

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

  • Lando : [talks to Darth Vader about trapping Luke Skywalker]  Lord Vader, we only use this facility for carbon freezing. You put him in there, it might kill him!

    Darth Vader : I do not want the Emperor's prize damaged. We will test it... on Captain Solo.

  • Lando : [seeing Leia for the first time]  Hello, what have we here?

  • 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.

  • Lando : I've just made a deal that'll keep the Empire out of here forever.

  • Lando : Lord Vader, what about Leia and the Wookiee?

    Darth Vader : They must never again leave this city.

    Lando : [outraged]  That was never a condition of our agreement, nor was giving Han to this bounty hunter!

    Darth Vader : Perhaps you think you're being treated unfairly?

    Lando : [after a pause; nervous tone]  No.

    Darth Vader : Good, it would be unfortunate if I had to leave a garrison here.

    Lando : [to himself]  This deal is getting worse all the time!

  • Lando : [greeting "old friend" Han Solo]  Why you slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler. You've got a lot of guts coming here, after what you pulled.

  • Lando : Punch it!

    [Chewbacca attempts to engage the hyperdrive on the Millenium Falcon - it fails. Chewie and Leia both glare at Lando] 

    Lando : They told me they fixed it! I *trusted* them to *fix* it! It's not my fault!

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

    Lando : Having trouble with your droid?

    Han Solo : No, no problem. Why?

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

    Princess Leia : [cooly]  Thank you.

  • Lando : Lord Vader, we only use this facility for carbon freezing. If you put him in there it might kill him.

    Darth Vader : I do not want the Emperor's prize damaged. We will test it on Captain Solo.

  • [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!

  • Lando : [to Han]  You know, seeing you sure brings back a few things. Yeah, I'm responsible now, the price you pay for being successful.

  • 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] 

  • 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] 

  • 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.
