Dr. Evazan: [explaining] He doesn't like you.
Dr. Evazan: I don't like you either.
Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
C-3PO: [to R2-D2] This is all your fault.
Han Solo: This is *not* gonna work.
Luke: Why didn't you say so before?
Han Solo: I *did* say so before.
Han Solo: It's not my fault.
Luke: I don't think so. I'm looking for a great warrior.
Yoda: Ohhh. Great warrior.
[laughs and shakes his head]
Yoda: Wars not make one great.
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: Excuse me sir, but might I inquire as to what's going on?
Han Solo: Why not?
C-3PO: Impossible man.
C-3PO: Sir, If I may venture an opinion...
Han Solo: I'm not really interested in your opinion 3PO.
[after choking Captain Needa to death]
Darth Vader: Apology accepted, Captain Needa.
Princess Leia: I have a bad feeling about this...
Yoda: I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience.
Obi-Wan: He will learn patience.
Yoda: Much anger in him.
Yoda: Good relations with the Wookies, I have.
The Emperor: [to the Senate] In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Galactic Empire, for a safe and secure society which I assure you will last for ten thousand years.
[Senate fills with enormous applause]
Padmé: [to Bail Organa] So this is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.
Obi-Wan: Anakin, my allegiance is to the Republic... to democracy!
Anakin Skywalker: If you're not with me, you're my enemy.
Obi-Wan: Only a Sith Lord deals in absolutes.
Darth Sidious: Once more, the Sith will rule the galaxy! And... we shall have peace.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Greed can be a very powerful ally.
Senator Palpatine: There is no civility, only politics.
Qui-Gon Jinn: Do you hear that?
[a rumbling is heard in the distance]
Jar Jar Binks: Yeah.
Qui-Gon Jinn: That is the sound of a thousand terrible things headed this way.
Obi-Wan: If they find us, they will crush us, grind us into TINY pieces and BLAST us into oblivion!
Yoda: Hard to see, the dark side is.
Nute Gunray: My lord, is that... legal?
Darth Sidious: I will make it legal.
Lando Calrissian: Here goes nothing.
The Emperor: If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed.
Padme: You're not all-powerful, Ani.
Anakin: Well, I should be.
Jango Fett: Do you like your army?
Obi-Wan: I look forward to seeing them in action.
Anakin: I've heard this lesson before.
Obi-Wan: You haven't learned anything, Anakin.
Anakin: Someday I will be the most powerful Jedi ever.
Anakin: When I got to them we got into aggressive negotiations.
Padme: Aggressive negotiations? What's that?
Anakin: Ah, well, it's negotiations with a lightsaber.
Anakin: You call this a diplomatic solution?
Padme: No, I call it an aggressive negotiation.
Count Dooku: I have good news for you, my lord. War has begun.
Darth Sidious: Excellent. Everything is going as planned.
Anakin: You're asking me to be rational. I know that is something I cannot do.
Queen Jamillia: The day we stop believing democracy can work is the day we lose it.
Padme: Let's pray that day never comes.
