Irvin Kershner (+1)

"It didn't quite work for me. It was a nice picture but I expected something different. I thought it would be a different kind of film. It had fabulous stuff in it but it didn't work for me."
Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, when asked if he was pleased with the film Return of the Jedi[src]

Chad Vader (+4)

"Luke... what we have here is a failure to communicate. Icebergs do not concern me, Admiral. I have altered the commandments. Pray I don't alter them any further. The power to hunt a shark is insignificant next to the power of a bigger boat. What is thy bidding, Doctor Zhivago? The Force is strong with you, Smokey, but you haven't gotten the Bandit yet. Captain Solo, how did you get out of the carbonite? Put down that whip!"
Chad Vader, performing scenes from Cool Hand Luke, Titanic, The Ten Commandments, Jaws, Doctor Zhivago, Smokey and the Bandit, and finally Raiders of the Lost Ark[src]

Episode III: The Abridged Script (+2)

Narrator: "Ewan McGregor finds out that General Grievous is hiding on Utapau. He jumps on a ridiculously loud and annoying iguana. The iguana's sounds are ear-piercing and awful, making the audience miserable during any scene containing it. Ewan rides it up to General Grievous and challenges him."
Ewan: "I will attempt to destroy you now, without waiting for my support troops to arrive."
Grievous: "Are you serious? You’ve lost literally every single duel you’ve been a part of except for the one with Darth Maul. Hayden constantly mentions how many times he has saved you. What have you done in the entire prequel trilogy so far to prove that you’re actually a decent fighter?"
Ewan: "Hey, I...sort of beat Jango Fett. So, what’s with the coughing? Do droids get colds or something?"
Grievous: "Oh no, see, I’m a cyborg, not a droid. Check it out, I have an actual beating heart."
Narrator: "Ewan shoots it and Grievous' head explodes in a ball of fire."
Ewan: "That made sense."

Darths and Droids (+2)

Grievous: "The caterpillar sees not its destiny, except by fulfilling it. Only by shedding our previous bodies can we become beautiful butterflies. I see you have no wings. Let me show you mine. [Grievous draws four lightsabers]"
R2-D2: "Oh my. That is so poetic."
Obi-Wan: "It makes no sense whatsoever!"
R2-D2: "Not the words; his cybernetic servos. Observe the balletic mastery of four laser swords!"
Grievous: "You've watched me now a full half-hour; self-poised upon this yellow flower."
Obi-Wan: "Okay, that's poetic."

Narrative text

Sean Williams (+2)

"The Force streamed through him like a lightning bolt, fueling his instincts and filling him with strength. For a full second he closed his eyes and let his arms move in perfect synchrony with the energy bolts. He wasn't even part of the equation anymore. He was a spectator, a privileged observer in a deadly but beautiful ballet."
Sean Williams, describes the Starkiller's Force lightning attack in Kashyyyk[src]

Callista??? (+5)

"The darkness was eternal, all-powerful, unchangeable. She stared into it, unblinking and unafraid. She was determined that it would not claim her. She had resisted it this many years. She would resist it forever, never despairing. It was unchangeable, but change would take place. The Force said so."
―Opening words[src]

  1. I'm unsure whether this refers to Callista Ming or someone else, but these are great words to oepn up an epic nine-book series.--ID-21 Dolphin DolphinJedi(Talk) 16:29, January 12, 2011 (UTC)
  2. I think it refers to Jaina. That was my interpretation when I read it. Lele Mj Green Squadron (Holoprojector) 00:46, January 31, 2011 (UTC)
  3. Personally, I think it's Allana. The tentacles she felt on Kessel, the Jedi queen on the Throne of Balance and Taalon's obsession with finding her, the inexplicably important role she's had in FotJ thus far…it only makes sense. Although Callista would make a lot of sense too. Jonjedigrandmaster (Talk) 05:21, February 2, 2011 (UTC)

Lost Tribe: Sentinel (sort-of spoiler I guess) (+1)

"Keshiri legend held that soon after the Sith arrived, some of their native population had escaped over the ocean. They'd chosen a one-way trip to privation and likely death over lives of service to the Tribe. Today's more devoted Keshiri told it as a cautionary tale: choice of destiny was a luxury reserved for the Protectors, not their servants. The cost of arrogance, for a servant, was isolation.
"Ori saw it differently. If the exodus really had happened, whoever had led those slaves away was the greatest Keshiri of all time. Their fates had been decided—and defied."
―The thoughts of Orielle Kitai on the exile of the Keshiri resistance[src]

For

  1. A really powerful passage. IMO Sentinel was one of the best eBooks of the LToTS series yet. Jonjedigrandmaster (Talk) 03:37, February 22, 2011 (UTC)
