The Top 15 Han Solo Quotes You Need to Use in Regular Conversation

Terrific list. Here’s one of them:

14. “Had a slight weapons malfunction, but everything’s perfectly alright now. We’re fine, we’re all fine, here, now, thank you. How are you?”

When to say it: When your cell phone signal begins to break up

Granted, this is a Star Wars quote which will almost immediately get recognized as a Star Wars quote — hopefully, you’ll never find yourself in a real life situation where you have to use the term “weapons malfunction.” Still, though, if you’ve got to go through the typically banal “wait, you’re breaking up – can you hear me?” conversation with a friend over your phone, why not throw in a Han Solo quote for good measure? Pretty much everything Harrison Ford says in the series is gold – in everyday life, one should always be searching for methods, no matter how forced, to speak the words of Han Solo.

  1. Bah, what a lot of rubbish. I mean, fucking Star Wars… It was great in its day — but only because of the special effects. The dialogue was probably the weakest point of the flicks. Alec Guinness detested it, but even the no-name actors joked that “you can write it, but you can’t actually say it.”

    The Big Lebowski on the other hand — you can almost get through an entire day solely by using quotes from that one…

  2. I must keep this article away from some of my mates… it’s bad enough I have to hear that every place we ever go to outside our hometown is a “wretched hive of scum and villainy“. Mind you, they’re often right.

    I liked the first three comments, though, but it’ll be difficult to share them without encouraging the almost constant quoting.

  3. God damn it, Chris, get this blog together!

    A Han Solo quote list? So help me god, if I ever see something like this again I will leave this site and never return for a week

  4. i have to admit that i had more fun reading the comments to this blog post than reading the actual blogged material. i suppose it made han solo all worth it.

  5. even the no-name actors joked that “you can write it, but you can’t actually say it.”

    …Said no-name actor actually being HF himself, thus referring to these selfsame quotes. Which, of course, makes the list all the greater:)
