Indy v Han: A Quote Off

Hating snakes on the Millennium Falcon

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: Try the local sewer.


A New Hope

Luke: Listen, if you were to rescue her, the reward would be...

Han Solo: What?

Luke: Well, more wealth than you can imagine!

Han Solo: I don't know, I can imagine quite a bit.


Raiders of the Lost Ark

Indiana: Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?


A New Hope

[as the garbage compactor closes in]

Han Solo: One thing's for sure, we're all gonna be a lot thinner.


Raiders of the Lost Ark

Marion: He said you were a bum.

Indiana: Aw, he's being generous.

Marion: The most gifted bum he ever trained. You know, he loved you like a son... took a hell of a lot for you to alienate him.

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.

Princess Leia: It's a wonder you're still alive.

[Pushing past Chewbacca]

Princess Leia: Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?

Han Solo: No reward is worth this.


Temple of Doom

Indiana: [with shoe on fire] Water! Water! Water! Wa... Oh. [sees a flood coming towards him] WATER!


A New Hope

Han Solo: Han Solo. I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me you're lookin' for passage to the Alderaan system?

Obi-Wan: Yes indeed, if it's a fast ship.

Han Solo: Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?


Temple of Doom

Willie Scott: You're gonna get killed chasing after your damn fortune and glory!

Indiana Jones: Maybe. But not today.


A New Hope

Han Solo: Get in there, you big furry oaf! I don't care what you smell!


Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones: Nothing shocks me. I'm a scientist.


A New Hope

Han Solo: What good is a reward if you ain't around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station is not my idea of courage. It's more like, suicide.

Luke: [angry] Okay. Take care of yourself Han. I guess that's what you're best at isn't it?

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


Last Crusade

Professor Henry Jones: I'm sorry about your head though. But I thought that you were one of them.

Indiana Jones: Dad, they come in through the doors.


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.


Last Crusade

Professor Henry Jones: I didn't know you could fly a plane.

Indiana Jones: Fly, yes. Land, no.


The Empire Strikes Back

Han Solo: You could be a little nicer, though. Come on, admit it. Sometimes you think I'm all right.

Princess Leia: Occasionally, maybe... when you aren't acting like a scoundrel.

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


Last Crusade

Professor Henry Jones: Those people are trying to kill us!

Indiana Jones: [shouts] I know, Dad!

Professor Henry Jones: This is a new experience for me.

Indiana Jones: It happens to me all the time.


The Empire Strikes Back

Princess Leia: I hope you know what you're doing.

Han Solo: Yeah, me too.


Last Crusade

Indiana Jones: Sallah, I said no camels. That's five camels. Can't you count?


The Empire Strikes Back

C-3PO: Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.

Han Solo: Never tell me the odds.


Last Crusade

Sallah: You are named after the dog? HA HA HA...!

Indiana Jones: I've got a lot of fond memories of that dog.


The Empire Strikes Back

Princess Leia: Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.

Han Solo: Who's scruffy-looking?


Last Crusade

Indiana Jones: It's disgraceful, you're old enough to be her... her grandfather.

Professor Henry Jones: Well, I'm as human as the next man.

Indiana Jones: Dad, I was the next man.


Return of the Jedi

Han Solo: Keep your distance, though, Chewie, but don't look like you're trying to keeping your distance.

[Chewie barks a question]

Han Solo:I don't know. Fly casual.


Last Crusade

Indiana Jones: Archaeology is the search for fact... not truth. If it's truth you're looking for, Dr. Tyree's philosophy class is right down the hall.


Return of the Jedi

Han Solo: How we doin'?

Luke: Same as always.

Han Solo: That bad, huh?


Last Crusade

Indiana Jones: [gesturing to a window where he just threw out a Nazi Officer] No ticket.


Return of the Jedi

Han Solo: [flying across the deserts of Tatooine] I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big bright blur.


Last Crusade

Indiana Jones: That belongs in a museum.


Return of the Jedi

C-3PO: You will therefore be taken to the Dune Sea, and cast into the pit of Carkoon, the nesting place of the all-powerful Sarlaac.

Han Solo: Doesn't sound so bad.

C-3PO: In his belly you will find a new definition of pain and suffering as you are slowly digested over a thousand years.

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