Here you can post your favorite and/or funny character quotes from the different books of the EU. I always loved this thread on StarWars.com, so wanted to start it over here. I have way too many favorite funny quotes, but will start with some I recently read:
Zsinj merely blinked at him. His expression said, How nice that you have that problem. Now solve it.
"So we've found one of her relatives. The relative will make contact for us."
"A relative of Gara Petothel?"
"No, of Lara Notsil, the woman whose identity she took. The community where she grew up, New Oldtown--"
Zsinj shuddered. "Surely you're joking about that name."
"On Aldivy. It was blasted out of existence by Admiral Trigit when it refused to offer him supplies."
"You're sure he didn't destroy it because of that name."
"Since he's dead, I'll have trouble asking him. Anyway, one of the real Lara Notsil's siblings, from New Oldtown--"
"Don't ever say that name again. It annoys me."
"--returned home after spending months at a naval job under an assumed name. He was supposed to be serving time in a jail in his hometown-whose-name-is-nevermore-to-be-said."
~Warlord Zsinj and General Melvar - X-Wing: Iron Fist
And one more:
"...And I have a three-stage plan to let you get back to the way things used to be."
"Stage One." Wedge opened a comm channel on the co-pilot's control board. "YT-1300 to bridge. This is Commander Antilles. Please cut all lights in Bay Gamma One."
"Including the magcon shield indicator, please, bridge."
The rectangle of light around the magcon field faded. Now they sat in near-perfect darkness, illuminated only by the stars outside the field.
"That's nice," he [Han Solo] said. "I think you're right. I could use more of that. What's Stage Two?"
"Well, you're not the only member of the crew who could benefit from some blissful irresponsibility right now. So I'm going to stage an insurrection and seize control of Mon Remonda."
Solo gave a curt laugh. "Wedge Antilles, mutineer. That I have to see."
"Bring your Wookiee and I'll show you."
[cue 24 hour mutiny]
Solo and Wedge were among those who abandoned the last surviving card game. Solo rubbed tired eyes and said, "Not bad, man-who-looks-like-Wedge. What's Stage Three?"
Wedge gave him a smile he might have learned from a toothy Bothan. "In Stage Three, we track down Zsinj and blow him up."
"Good plan. I like it."
