Indy v Han: A Quote Off

There's not much that Harrison Ford can't do. Especially when he's in Indiana Jones or Han Solo mode. Let's face it -- what's not to like about this cantina frequenting, princess rescuing, heavy on the zeppelin-ticket-inspection adventurer? And to cap it all off, he gets the best lines too.

See below for our top quotes of wisdom and wit from unquestionably the greatest archaeologist and spaceship captain in the world. We want to know which is the finest, though. Scores out of 5 for each. Happy hunting and let us know what we've missed in the comments...

    Raiders of the Lost Ark

    Belloq: How odd that it should end this way for us after so many stimulating encounters. I almost regret it. Where shall I find a new adversary so close to my own level?

    Indiana: Not much... just you.

    A New Hope

    Han Solo: Look, Your Worshipfulness, let's get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.

    Han Solo: [as Luke walks away] Hey, Luke. May the Force be with you.

    A New Hope

    Han Solo: Let him have it. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.

    C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.

    Han Solo: That's 'cause droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.

    Han Solo: Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.

  • Indy v Han: A Quote Off 16

    Han Solo: On second thought, let's pass on that, huh?
