I find your lack of faith disturbing…

Darth Vader… and other Star Wars favourite lines.

I’m really not sure why, but I’ve found myself remembering Star Wars lines. Maybe it’s because I’m writing. Anyway, here’s a few of my favourites, a number being by him on the left. I found a few Youtube snippets, too

“These are not the droids you’re looking for.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7l8rWfLAus

“I find your lack of faith disturbing.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zzs-OvfG8tE

“Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?” http://starwars.com/watch/encyclo_princess_leiaorgana_a.html

“Will somebody get this big walking carpet out of my way?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31A1WbkeD2I

Han: “We don’t have time to discuss this in committee.” Leia: “I am NOT a committee.”

“You have failed me for the last time, Admiral.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYZoxY3sawE

“Apology accepted, Captain Needa.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69WbIEEs288

“Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

Luke: “I don’t believe it!” Yoda: “That… is why you fail.”

Darth: “I… am your father.” Luke: “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=peh2T2543ec

and of course “May the Force be with you.”

Do you have any favourites to share?


About Greta van der Rol

I'm an author of fast-paced, action-adventure novels, mainly space opera - although I've been known to write in other genres. I live not far from the coast in Queensland, Australia and enjoy photography and cooking when I'm not bent over the computer. I have a degree in history and a background in building information systems, both of which go a long way toward helping me in my writing endeavours.

  1. Misquoting shamelessly, I use the following quite a lot…

    “This is not the Steven you are looking for.” (Another Steven J Pemberton works for the same company as me, but on the other side of the world. “Thanks” to auto-complete, both of us get a lot of email intended for the other.)

    “Use the source, Luke.” (I work as a developer on a fairly large and complex software product, and when I’m trying to figure out how to make it do something, it’s often quicker to read the source code than to dig through the documentation to find a vague and incomplete explanation of how the tech writer thought it was supposed to work.)

    Other lines I’m fond of…

    “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought.”

    “I suggest a new strategy, Artoo. Let the Wookiee win.”

    “That’s no moon…”

    Actually I love to laugh at those lines. Maybe with those lines – they are just so wonderfully hoaky!

  3. Same character different context:
    “You should have seen his face when I told him I was his father! … I told my son, who did not know that I was his father, that I was his father.”

  4. The quotes are so well known, I’ve seen them cropping up in other movies. http://www.mpaxauthor.com
