Groups of friends speak in different styles. Some have accents. Some have made-up languages. Star Wars fans – we talk in favorite dialog. Even the slightest of SW fans know the BIG quotes from the movies, but what do the “UBER” fans feel are their favorites?
I’ve polled 10 of my fellow SW-T10 “uber” StarWars fans and asked them to rank their top 10 favorite Star Wars Quotes from the Movies.
The only rule for the choices – these are individual lines of text, not an entire conversation.
As always, there’s a lot of debate to be had, so head over to the comments, and get in the battle!
Some of the Ubers were very angry with me that they were only allowed to choose one line when so many lines go hand in hand with the preceding or following lines… “I love you” “I know”. However, you don’t get the title of Uber without having to make the hard calls!
Many of the entries will bring you INSTANTLY to that scene in the movie. We had votes for comic lines, dramatic lines, inspiring lines and yes, one Uber giggled to themselves while submitting numerous lines that can be used for ‘foul’ humor.
This question brought the most differing opinions in the 10-list history of our little site. 48 different quotes were nominated in total. Think about that, 10 people listing 47 different quotes. That’s a lot of opinion. Not one quote made it on to all 10 lists. In fact, the top quote wasn’t even mentioned on TWO of the submissions!
Which characters said the most of our favorite quotes?
Han Solo is credited with 11, Leia with 6, and Vader, Yoda and Obi-Wan all tie with 5 each.
Without the cartoons involved this time, let’s look at when the lines were said…
21 of the 47 quotes came from A New Hope
14 of the 47 quotes came from Empire Strikes Back
6 of the 47 quotes came from Return of the Jedi
3 of the 47 quotes came from Rogue One
2 of the 47 quotes came from Force Awakens
1 of the 47 quotes came from the Prequels, it was in Phantom Menace.
Easy to see where the best dialog and memories come from.
Here we go – here is the full list with their score.
