The most famous Han Solo quotes from Star Wars

The very best Han Solo quotes from the Star Wars movies

Han Solo was literally one of the coolest characters in the Star Wars universe as he was the one who was frozen in a large block of carbonite in The Empire Strikes.

He's the smuggler that dumped Jabba the Hutt's cargo at the first sign of Imperial trouble and is known for making ‘special modifications' himself!

Most of all, he's in it for the money.

He also had a pretty cool attitude which meant he was able to shoot Greedo first and let fly (boy!) with some classic one-liner quotes.

Here are a select few of Harrison Ford’s best and most famous quotes from the five Star War movies he was in:

The very best Han Solo quotes from the Star Wars movies

    hansolo carbonite

  • “Great, kid. Don't get cocky† – Luke and the gang have just escaped the Death Star following the death of Obi-Wan Kenobi when Vader sends a squadron of Tie Fighters after them. Luke manages to shoot one down and is pretty happy about it when Solo chirps back with this line. Han’s no fool, he’s been around much longer and knows that what they’re going through is life and death….
  • “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†– How right was Han when he cast this aside to his furry Wookie buddy?
  • “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†– Han had a bounty on his head when he said this to Leia. Still, he managed to overlook this long enough to fly in and save the day later on.
  • “I know.” – This next one from Empire Strikes Back is possibly one of the greatest ad-libbed lines in the history of movie making. Han is about to be encased in carbonite and be sent to Jabba the Hutt. Leia finally able to vocalise her love for the smuggler and says the classic line.
  • “Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.” – But that's so uncivilized…
  • “Laugh it up, fuzzball!” – Did Chewie say something funny?
  • “Never tell me the odds!”  – When flying through an asteroid field whilst evading the Empire C3PO questioned the merit of Han flying in the field to wit he replied:
  • “Punch it!† – A quote that has been adopted by many fans for whenever they need to start something such as their car.
  • “You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? … It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.†Possibly Han's most famous line. Why is this infamous? A Parsec is a measurement of distance not time – so Han was simply making an idle boast to impress Obi-Wan and young Luke about the speed of the Millennium Falcon. Or was he? Tie-in books have explained that Han meant he cut down the distance commonly traveled on the Kessel run by flying close to Black Holes that no one else had dared to. But the new canon rules have made this explanation defunct. If you look closely at Chewbacca in this scene, he does seem a bit sceptical about Han's claim, however! In The Force Awakens Han corrects Rey's description of this run by shouting “12 parsecs” back at her.
  • Boring conversation anyway. Luke, we're gonna have company!”
There are plenty of Boba Fett fans out there and many of them were disappointed when the character found himself knocked into the Sarlac pit by a blinded Han Solo. Still, it was kind of funny when I was a kid…

The Force Awakens quotes by Han Solo

Here are Han Solo's best quotes and lines of dialogue from Star Wars – The Force Awakens.

To Finn “Women Always Figure Out The Truth. Always.”

Han Solo: “Are you sure you're up for this?”

Rey: “I can handle myself:

Han Solo: “That's why I'm giving it to you!”

As Solo mans the pilot seat of the Falcon in a tight spot “Come on baby, don't let me down”‘

To Finn who has just advised Han he doesn't have a plan and thinks the Force can just be used to save Rey:  “that's not how the Force works!”

Han Solo as he walks up to Kylo on the bridge and yells “BEN!” and in doing so reveals Kylo's real name and that he was presumably named after Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Rise of Skywalker Han Solo scene with Kylo Ren

In Rise of Skywalker, Han appears in a vision to Kylo Ren on the Death Star, Ben cries ‘dad!' to which Han loving replies “I know”, a great call back to Han's most famous line.

Boring conversation anyway. Luke, we're gonna have company!

Harrison Ford on the Hoth set of Star Wars
