Decades after Star Wars first inspired an entire generation of movie lovers, the universe built by George Lucas continues to grow, with a brand-new movie just around the corner.
A classic story of good versus evil, the tragic fall and redemption of a hero, and the fight for what is right, Star Wars has become a beloved classic for many.
Still, in all this fame and majesty, there’s one character that seems to stand out among the rest when it comes to being one of the most relatable, quotable, and bad-ass people in movie history. And that is Han Solo.
While Han Solo might not do the right thing all the time, he’s still an incredible character who managed to come out as a hero by the time everything was said and done.
We thought we’d look back at some of the best Han Solo quotes from over the years.
“Great kid, don’t get cocky.”
“Look, I ain’t in this for your revolution, and I’m not in it for you Princess. I expect to be well paid. I’m in it for the money.”
“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.”
“What good is a reward if you ain’t around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station is not my idea of courage. It’s more like, suicide.”
“Wonderful girl. Either I’m going to kill her or I’m beginning to like her.”
“Listen, big deal. You got another problem. Women always figure out the truth. Always.”
“You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.”
On Always Doing Your Own Thing:
“Look, your worshipfulness, let’s get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.”
“Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.”
“Never tell me the odds!”
“Boring conversation anyway. Luke, we’re gonna have company!”
“Traveling through hyperspace ain’t like dusting crops, farm boy. Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star or bounce too close to a supernova, and that’d end your trip real quick, wouldn’t it?”
On Being Cool:
“You know, sometimes I amaze even myself.”
“Don’t everyone thank me at once.”
“That’s two you owe me, junior.”
“Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh…everything’s perfectly all right now. We’re fine. We’re all fine here now, thank you. How are you?”
“It’s not my fault.”
“3PO. You tell that slimy piece of worm-ridden filth, he’ll get no such pleasure from us.”
“Bring ’em on! I prefer a straight fit to all this sneakin’ around!”
On “The Force”:
“I used to wonder about that myself. Thought it was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. A magical power holding together good and evil, the dark side and the light. Crazy thing is… it’s true. The Force. The Jedi… All of it… It’s all true.”
“Chewie! I can’t see, pal. What’s going on? Luke? Luke’s crazy! He can’t even take care of himself, much less rescue anybody. A Jedi Knight? I’m out of it for a little while, and everyone gets delusions of grandeur!”
“I still get a funny feeling about that old man and the kid. I’m not sure what it is about them, but they’re trouble.”
“That’s not how the Force works!”
