1. Han Solo
“Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh… everything’s perfectly all right now. We’re fine. We’re all fine here now, thank you. How are you?”Han Solo, Episode IV: A New Hope
Though George Lucas gets credit for screenwriting, many of Han’s greatest one-liners come from A New Hope script rewrite by Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck. Everything about the comm conversation between Storm Trooper Han and a random Imperial Officer that ends with an E-11 blast and, “boring conversation anyway”, tells us this guy is flying by the seat of his Corellian pants and making it up as he goes. It is classic space-cowboy Han Solo and established him as a fan favorite for years to come.
Han has an armory of great quotes, and they didn’t end with Harrison Ford. In Solo: A Star Wars Story, Alden Ehrenreich kept the Solo banter going strong. Interactions with his new-found friend Chewbacca were comical, and gave life to what could arguably be the greatest science-fiction friendship ever written.
