The Empire Strikes Back/Funny

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • "Never tell me the odds!"
  • This dialogue:

Han: Why are you following me? Afraid I'll leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?
Leia: I'd rather kiss a Wookie.
Han: I can arrange that. [walking away] You could USE A GOOD KISS!!
[Leia sees someone listening to their conversation... Who turns around and hurriedly makes himself scarce.]

C-3PO: Sir, might I give you my opinion?
Han: I'm not interested in your opinions.

  • Yoda rummaging through Luke's supplies and beating on R2 with his stick when the droid interferes.
  • After Lando ratted out on Han and tried to gain Leia's trust by opening Chewie's handcuffs, Chewie decides to play Strango Calrissian
    • What amuses me is that, even as Lando is removing Chewie's handcuffs, Leia's saying, "Do you think that after what you did to Han, that we're going to trust--" And right as she finishes with "--you?", Chewie's hands are free, and he decides to, ahem, voice that opinion also. A bit more strenuously.
  • In an otherwise dark, foreboding scene, we have Leia's amused comment after Han punches Lando:

Leia: You certainly have a way with people.

  • "Laugh it up, fuzzball!"
  • After Lando takes command of the Falcon, the look on Chewie and Leia's faces when the hyperdrive doesn't work for the third time in the film is just priceless. They just look at each other with incredulous resignation. And then Lando and Chewie start going crazy while Leia slumps dejectedly into a chair.
  • "Artoo, come back here at once; you haven't finished with me yet! You don't know how to fix the hyperdrive! Chewbacca can do it! I'm standing here in pieces and you're having delusions of grandeur!" Of course, seconds later, Artoo does fix the hyperdrive. (And he slides bodily into a maintenance pit for his trouble.)
