Leia: “Now I know why you never want to be told the odds. Because you don’t know what they mean!”

“Han, we had our first kiss in the belly of a space slug. Believe me when I say that my expectations of doing anything remotely romantic with you have never been particularly high.”

Leia: “Because it would be like letting children play with thermal detonators.”
Han: “I like it. I have a flamethrower.”

“Han: “New message?”
Leia: “From Ben.”
Han: “Another letter filled with teenage talk, I assume. Girls, speeders, allowance woes—”

Han: “And Sith, of course.”

Luke: “I think I just blasted it….”

“Leia: “Listen to me – we’re never going to have a tidy family tree. Why can’t you realize? We’re never going to know our parents better than we do right now. We’re never going to have fond stories of our grandparents to tell our children. We’re better off telling them about Owen and Beru, about Bail – the real people who cared for us, protected us, loved us like we were their own. You make too much of blood.”
Luke: “It’s more than blood—”
Leia: “I don’t care. You can’t invent a normal childhood for us, no matter how much you turn up about Mother and Father. And if you do find the truth, as you call it, you just might find you don’t like it very much. You might end up wishing you’d let them stay dead.”
Luke: “Could anything be worse than what we already know?”
Leia: “I’d rather not know the answer to that question.”

“Han: “C’mon, Luke—nobody ends up living their lives the way they expect.”

Han: “Accountable to no one? Are you kidding me? Luke, have you ever met your sister? Luke Skywalker of Tatooine, let me introduce Princess Leia Organa of whouf—!”
Leia: “Of the Extremely Sharp Elbow.”

“Leia: “My children are going to have normal family stories to tell their children, little funny stories about everyday nothings, stories where no one dies too young or has to carry a burden of shame. I’m going to see to that, with your help or without it—”
Han Solo: “Leia—”
Leia: “Nothing matters more to me, do you understand?” [points at Luke] “Nothing. So you do what you think you have to, brother – go wherever you have to with whoever you want to, chasing whatever shadow of a hint of a promise of a clue you like. I don’t care about any of it. Don’t ask for my help again. And don’t bring the past into this house. It’s all just pain and death. You wallow in it if you want to. I’ve had enough of it for ten lifetimes.”

“Lando: “I feel like an idiot.”

Leia: “…or freeze him in carbonite, I know.”

“Han: “Looks like Tatooine.”
Leia: “You sound cheerful about that.”
Han: “I have good memories out of Tatooine. Met a nice guy there. Got a wife out the deal a few years later. Maybe there’s another wife waiting for me there.”
Leia: “Be careful what you wish for.” [Allana chuckles]
Han: “What’s funny, kiddo?”
Allana: “You. You don’t want two wives.”
Han: “Why not?”
Allana: “‘Cause I don’t need two grandmas, and you don’t need two ladies telling you what to do.”
Han: “…Yes, she’s definitely inherited that Organa mouth.”

“Javon: “But I’ve never protected a child before. I’m not sure I’m competent for the task.”
Leia: “The first thing to remember, which is a real help, is that you generally don’t have to tell them to duck when you’re firing over their heads.”

“You’ll both get medals for this – as well as the longest, warmest lube baths we can muster!”

“Javon: “I just wanted to express reservations. About my own lack of experience in one area. I mean, I don’t know what to do if she starts crying.”
Leia: “It takes a lot to make her cry. I suggest you empty a blaster rifle clip in the direction of whatever made her cry.”
Javon: “That’s reassuring…”

“Jaina: “One journalist in particular seems very keen on chatting with Jag and me. Trying to ditch him is like trying to shake a mynock off the hull.”

Dei: “No.”
Leia: “Good.”

“Han: “Why can we never just sit down and have a decent meal anywhere in the galaxy?”

Leia: “I know who it was.”

“Leia: “Traveling with you three is like being on a ship full of children.”
Han: “Aw, come on. You know you love us.”
Leia: “I know. I still can’t understand why.”

“Ovin: “I’ve heard it said that being the Chief of State means when you speak, they have to be quiet. Tomorrow I intend to make them quiet long enough to repair some of the damage I’ve done. And then—I’m going to knock some heads together.”
Leia: “You sound just like Han.”
Ovin: “That is perhaps the finest compliment I have ever received.”

“Leia: “You’re going to attack them?”
C-3PO: “Sir, the odds of surviving a direct assault on an Imperial Star Destroyer—”
Leia: “Shut up!”

“Leia: “I love you.”
Han Solo: “I know.”

“Leia: “I’m a diplomat, and you’re not. You should have let me do the talking.”
Mara: “I’ve been letting you do the talking, and all it’s gotten us so far is an enforced vacation at this villa. I’m a businesswoman, a trader. Negotiation is my stock in trade.”
Leia: “Do you call insulting our hosts negotiating?”
Mara: “Negotiating is the art of getting what you want. It’s not the art of making the other side feel better.”
Leia: “They aren’t the ‘other side.’ They’re our partners in this negotiation.”
Mara: “If they were our partners, we wouldn’t need to negotiate.”

“I don’t think anyone ever goes into a war without the nagging feeling that there might have been some other way. Even when every other way has already been tried and hasn’t worked.”

“Han Solo: “You know, you thought I was pretty handy to have around before the kids showed up. Now you don’t need me anymore, huh? Just go ahead and toss me aside.”
Leia: “Of course I need you. As long as most of the droids are out on defense duty and there are two babies who have to be changed, you’ll always have a place here.”

“Leia: “There wasn’t anything to it, Han. On our first orbit around Endor we passed through the spot where the Death Star blew up. For a few seconds I could feel something like the Emperor’s presence around me. That’s all.”
Han Solo: “Oh, that’s all. A dead Emperor tries to make a grab for you, and you don’t think it’s worth mentioning?”

“Leia: “What’s next? Lose the war and become the New Republic Chief of State?”
Thrackan: “My allegiance is to the Corellian system alone. And you’d be smart to curb that lightsaber tongue of yours, Princess Leia. An insult to the man is an insult to the office.”
Leia: “Really? In this case, I should think it is the man himself who is the insult.”

“Leia: “I thought you knew better than that. You were acting like a child in there. No, worse, you were acting like Han.”
Luke: “You think so?”
Leia: “That’s not a compliment.”

“I want them to be happy. I want them to be children, to have the birthright of their innocence. But at the same time, I know they can’t just follow any path they want. With their powers in the Force, I have to teach them to distinguish lies from truth, to seek justice the way my father… the way Bail Organa sought justice. I have to… to protect the next generation from them. The way I have to protect the present generation from myself.”

“Leia: “You mentioned you were with a contact when you saw this Grand Admiral, but you didn’t give us the contact’s name.”
Han: “That’s right, I didn’t. And I’m not going to. Not now, anyway.”
Leia: “Mon Mothma’s going to want to know, eventually.”
Han: “And I’m going to tell her, eventually. Until then, it’s going to be our little secret.”
Leia: “As in ‘leverage’?”
Han: “You never can tell.”

“Han: “How are we doing?”
Leia: “We’ll make it. But don’t slow down.”
Han: “What if our hull starts to melt?”
Leia: “Find rain.”

“Han: “I guess you couldn’t talk her out of it?”
Leia: “Han!”
Han: “You know I’m only sore because he used to be the Emperor, right?”
Jaina: “He was a Head of State, Dad, not the Emperor. And he’s over that.”
Han: “He better be. I won’t have any daughter of mine raising little Imperials.”

“Leia: “You touch me… Touch me and one of us is going to die.”
Boba Fett: “Cover yourself. I’m not going to touch you.”
Leia: “You’re not?”
Boba Fett: “Sex between those not married is immoral.”

“Holding principles deeply doesn’t make a being right—and it doesn’t make what he’s doing right.”

“Han Solo: “It’s only a few guards. This shouldn’t be too much trouble.”
Leia: “Well, it only takes one to sound the alarm.”
Han Solo: “Then we’ll do it real quiet-like.”

“Yoda: “Like a river, the Force flows through you. Learned much you have, in these past three months. And more quickly than any student I have taught before.”
Leia: “Even my father?”
Yoda: “Strong was the Force with Anakin, before he became Vader. Yet impatient and stubborn he was. Constantly pushing to excel beyond his ability. More sublime, your approach has been.” [Leia kills a swamp slug that sprays water everywhere] “Yet learned you have not the hazards of using a superheated blade against a foe made mainly of water.”

“Leia: “Han! This is Finn. He is a friend of your children.”
Han: “I see. Finn, are you particularly friendly with my daughter?”
Finn: “Um…”
Leia: “Don’t worry, Finn. He’s not going to shoot you.”
Han: “Don’t be too sure, kid. You haven’t answered my question yet.”

“Leia: “I’m doing what I do best.”
Dorja: “But you were Chief of State – surely you must be considering a return to power.”
Leia: “I served my term.”
Dorja: “To voluntarily relinquish power – I confess I don’t understand it. In the Empire, we are taught not to decline responsibility once it is given to us.”
Leia: “Wisdom is knowing when you’ve given all you can.”

“Han Solo: “Well, Your Highness, guess this is it.”
Leia: “That’s right.”
Han Solo: “Well, don’t get all mushy on me. So long, Princess.”

“Han Solo: “Hey, I’m wearing the same pants I’ve worn for thirty years.”
Leia: “He’s not kidding about that.”

“What you have, Senators, is a consensus of fools.”

“Leia: “You did that deliberately, didn’t you?”
Han Solo: “Well, sure. Why just disable a ship when you can disable it and send up a distress signal at the same time? You know, sometimes I still amaze myself.”

“Salla: “By the way, who’s the lady?”
Leia: “Leia. Han and I are married.”
Salla: “My condolences, dear… Han’s great fun but he’s a scoundrel… he’ll break your heart.”

“Leia: “How romantic—we’re both wanted by the Hutts.”
Han: “Yeah, husband and wife—marked for death.”

“Don’t confuse refusing help with not needing it.”
