Revenge of the Sith

The infamous Phil Krinkie ... er ...
I mean Emperor Palpatine

I'm going to see Revenge of the Sith tonight, and yes, I am very excited about it. The Star Wars movies have been a part of my life since I can remember and it is actually kind of sad to think this will be the end. So, in honor of my viewing of the final episode tonight I thought I would produce a list of my favorite Star Wars quotes of all time. Feel free to add your own if you think I've missed any, which is highly probable. You'll note, though, that I don't have any quotes from Episode I or Episode II. Besides the Yoda/Dooku light saber duel, I am of the opinion that these movies never happened. Do you hear me? THEY NEVER HAPPENED! On with the quotes:

So there you have it. You can try to argue, but it would be pointless. The Greet Machine has spoken. And if you are going to the St. Louis Park Mann theater tonight to see the movie and you see a short, bald man with a dark complexion dressed like Obi-Wan Kenobi ... well, that's not me. But I will be there!

Comments

I can't argue with the choices...only add some others for consideration:

"We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life." - C-3PO, A New Hope

Any Vikings fan can relate...can he not!?!?

"I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board." - Princess Leia, A New Hope

Can be used whenever you find yourself near to a Packer fan.

"Will somebody get this big walking carpet out of my way!?" - Princess Leia, A New Hope

Classic camp.

"Would it help if I got out and pushed?" - Princess Leia, The Empire Strikes Back

Spoken for married men everywhere.

"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. I sense much fear in you." - Yoda, The Phantom Menace

There was good in the newer movies!

"Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?" - Yoda, The Empire Strikes Back

Yoda was really speaking to a prostitute.

"No, I am your father!" - Darth Vader, The Empire Strikes Back

How can anyone leave out THAT line in a Best Of!?!?!

"What an incredible smell you've discovered!" - Han Solo, A New Hope

Again, see reference to Packers fans.

"Great kid! Don't get cocky." - Han Solo, A New Hope

Probably my all-time favorite.

"Apology accepted, Captain Needa."

'Nuff said.

What is this parsec gibberish? Last I looked a parsec was a unit of distance, not time or speed. I think good science fiction should keep its science straight.

Parsec is a unit of distance. The Maw Cluster (A group of black holes) lays right in the path of the Kessel Run. Smugglers are forced to go around it. Most tend to be safe and travel a ways away from it, creating a longer distance, however, Han dared to fly very close around the circumferance, totalling less distance.

He managed to shave off 2 parsecs of distance from the normal smuggler.

I want to know why Emperor Palpatine's ghost didn't appear at the end of "Return of the Jedi" and same with Qui-Gonn Jinn's ghost. Everyone else came back as ghosts, even Anakin, but those two...
Someone tell me what's going on pleeese!

There were extremely excellent and the best scenes in the movie "Revenge of the Sith".
Good originality and great imagination, great story in this movie!
Here's Photo gallery for Hayden Christensen(Anakin) of this movie. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0159789/photogallery-ss-0
I love Star Wars series the most!

"At las we will reveal ourselves to the jedi, at last we will have revenge"-Darth Maul, Phantom Menece.
Maul's most famous line. Actually it's his only line.
