The most famous Han Solo quotes from Star Wars

The very best Han Solo quotes from the Star Wars movies
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 goods at the first sign of 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’s a select few of Harrison Ford’s best and most famous quotes from the four Star War movies he was in:

“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 shot 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.

This next one from Empire Strikes Back is possibly one of the greatest ad libbed lines in the history of movie make.

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 "I love you".

His response is the classic:

"I know."

This is the famous quote that many people think as being ad-libbed by Harrison Ford.

Not quite...

Leia got to return the favour during the Battle of Endor in ROTJ.

"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."

But that's so uncivilized...

Should have paid his debts!
A couple more from Empire:

"Laugh it up, fuzzball!"

Did Chewie say something funny?

When flying through an asteroid field whilst evading the Empire C3PO questioned the merit of Han flying in the field to wit he replied:


"Never tell me the odds!"

A quote that has been adopted by many fans for whenever they need to start something such as their car.

“Punch it”

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...

We had to leave this one till last, the infamous Kessel run quote:

“You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon? … It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.”


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!

The Force Awakens quotes by Han Solo

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

"Chewie, we're home."

Rey: "You're Han Solo?" 
Solo "I Used To Be."

When asked by Rey about the stories that happened, Han replies, "It's true. All of it. The dark side. The Jedi. They're real".

To Finn "Women Always Figure Out The Truth. Always."

Han Solo: "Are you sure you're up for this?"
Finn "hell no"

Han Solo as he offers Rey his pistol "You might need 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 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.
