I’ve got a bad feeling about this: a list of repeated lines in Star Wars

Here’s a list of dialog we hear more than once in the Star Wars Saga. Star Wars has many great quotations from any one of the six movies, but we sometimes find threads of dialog woven through more than one movie. They help to tie the films together, and invoke memories of other characters and situations found in other scenes. Some other the lines are almost a trademark of one character, and even though some lines are found in all six movies they aren’t over used to the point of being cheesy.
