Warning! There are MAJOR spoilers for plot points for The Rise of Skywalker below. If you have not seen this movie yet and do not wish to be spoiled, stop reading NOW. (but come back after you see it!).

“The dead speak” – Opening Crawl

Literally the first line of the crawl. And I LOVED it. Got me hyped from the start.

“My boy. I made Snoke. I have been every voice you have ever heard inside your head.” – Emperor Palpatine

“Kill the girl. End the Jedi. Become what your grandfather Vader could not.” – Emperor Palpatine

“She is not who you think she is.” – Palpatine

And who she is is something I NEVER saw coming. 

“Last jump. Maybe forever. Hold on.” – Poe 

“Don’t tell me what things look like. Tell me what things are.” – Leia

“Never underestimate a droid.” – Leia

Later, this comes back around and Rey says it. It was perfect.

“You’re the best fighter we have. We need you. Out there. Not here.” – Poe

“Bones. Never a good sign.” – C-3PO

“Horrible things have happened with this.” – Rey

“CHEWIE!!” – Rey

“Always in the shadows, from the very beginning.” _ Leia

“I don’t care if you win. I need Kylo Ren to lose.” – General Hux

“In the event I don’t make it back, I want you to know you’ve been a real friend, R2. My best one, in fact.” – C-3PO

I just know this will hit me harder the second time around.

“I see through the cracks in your mask. You’re haunted.” – Rey

“They gave you up to save you.” – Kylo Ren

“You don’t just have power. You have his power.” – Kylo Ren

“You can’t go back to her now. Just like I can’t.” – Kylo Ren

And then I cried. Because I felt Kylo’s — no Ben’s — heart aching.

“The Dark Side is in our blood.” – Kylo Ren

“Rey, never be afraid of who you are.” – Leia

“Nothing’s impossible.” – Leia

“I can’t stand the cries anymore.” – Zorii

“Can I kiss you?” – Poe

“A bad place, from an old war.” – Rey

“I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” – Lando

Of course someone was going to say this, because someone says it in every Star Wars movie. This… was perfect.

“The Force brought us here. It’s real. I wasn’t sure then, but I am now.” – Finn

“Ben.” – Leia

“Good bye, dear Princess.” – Maz Kanata

“I did want to take your hand. Ben’s hand.” – Rey

“Hey kid.” – Han Solo

“Dad.” – Kylo Ren
“I know.” – Han Solo

Yup. This part killed me. I loved it so much.

“Kylo Ren is dead. My son is alive.” – Han Solo

And my heart swelled…

“I know what I have to do but I don’t know if I have the strength to do it.” – Kylo Ren
“You do.” – Han Solo

“I need you in command with me.” – Poe

“She will come. Her friends will follow.” – Emperor Palpatine

“We had each other. That’s how we won.” – Lando

“A Jedi’s weapon deserves more respect.” – Luke

This part was AMAZING.

“It was fear that kept me here.” – Luke

“We’ve got friends out there. They’ll come if they know there’s hope.” – Poe

“Long have I waited…for my grandchild to come home.” – Emperor Palpatine

“They’re not a Navy. They’re just…people.”

“Be with me.” – Rey

“Rey… Skywalker.” – Rey

And then I cried for like 20 more minutes.

  6. The other great but subtle line was the last one spoken by C-3P0. As Rey was flying Luke’s X-Wing to land on the jungle planet, he looks up and says “Did you hear that?” This line is significant because it is the first piece of dialog in the original Star Wars (now called Episode IV), also spoken by C-3P0. As the Consular ship is being overtaken by the Star Destroyer, he says to Artoo-Detoo, “Did you hear that? They’ve shut down the main reactor. We’ll be destroyed for sure.”
