C-3PO Quotes in Rogue One (2016)


C-3PO Quotes:

  • C-3PO: Scarif? They're going to Scarif? Why does nobody ever tell me anything, R2?

  • C-3PO: [to R2-D2] Oh, my dear friend, how I've missed you.

  • C-3PO: [comes between Han and Leia] Goodness! Han Solo! It is I, C-3PO. You probably don't recognize me because of the red arm.

    C-3PO: [turns to Leia] Look who it is, did you see who... Um...

    C-3PO: [turns back to Han] Uh...

    C-3PO: [turns back to Leia] Um... Excuse me, Princ... General. Sorry. Come along, BB-8 quickly.

  • Leia: Can't believe I was so foolish to think I could find Luke and bring him home.

    Han Solo: Leia.

    Leia: Don't do that.

    Han Solo: Do what?

    Leia: Anything.

    [Leia walks off]

    C-3PO: Princesses.

    Han Solo: I'm trying to be helpful.

    Leia: When did that ever help? And don't say the Death Star.

  • C-3PO: Just you reconsider playing that message for him!

    [R2 beeps a question]

    C-3PO: No, I don't think he likes you at all.

    [R2 beeps again]

    C-3PO: No, I don't like you either.

  • C-3PO: We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life.

  • [repeated line]

    C-3PO: We're doomed.

  • [R2-D2 and Chewbacca are playing the holographic game aboard the Millennium Falcon]

    Chewbacca: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrgh!

    C-3PO: He made a fair move. Screaming about it can't help you.

    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.

    Chewbacca: Grrf.

    C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the Wookiee win.

  • [repeated line]

    C-3PO: [to R2-D2] This is all your fault.

  • C-3PO: I would much rather have gone with Master Luke than stay here with you. I don't know what all this trouble is about, but I'm sure it must be your fault.

    [R2 beeps an angry response]

    C-3PO: You watch your language!

  • C-3PO: Is there anything I can do?

    Luke Skywalker: Not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or teleport me off this rock.

  • C-3PO: Don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease.

  • C-3PO: Where could they be?

    [R2 beeps at him]

    C-3PO: Use the comlink? Oh my! I forgot, I turned it off.

    [over the comlink]

    C-3PO: Are you there sir?

    Luke Skywalker: 3PO?

    C-3PO: We've had some problems...

    Luke Skywalker: [interrupting] Will you shut up and listen to me! Shut down all the garbage smashers on the detention level, will ya? Do you copy? Shut down all the garbage smashers on the detention level! Shut down all the garbage mashers on the detention level!

    C-3PO: [to R2-D2] No! Shut them *all* down, hurry!

    [R2 shuts down the compactors]

    Luke Skywalker: What? HAHA! Hey, you did it 3PO!

    [Luke, Leia and Han start laughing hysterically; it sounds like screaming]

    C-3PO: Listen to them, they're dying R2! Curse my metal body, I wasn't fast enough, it's all my fault! My poor Master.

    Luke Skywalker: 3PO, we're all right! We're all right! Ha ha! Hey, open the pressure maintenance hatch on unit number... where are we? 3263827!

  • C-3PO: Master Luke, sir. Pardon me for asking, but what should R2 and I do if we're discovered here?

    Luke Skywalker: Lock the door.

    Han Solo: And hope they don't have blasters.

    C-3PO: That isn't very reassuring.

  • [last lines]

    C-3PO: You must repair him! Sir, if any of my circuits or gears will help, I'll gladly donate them.

    Luke Skywalker: He'll be all right.

  • [C-3PO is tangled up in wires after a run-in with tie fighters]

    C-3PO: Help! I think I'm melting! This is all your fault!

    [R2-D2 makes a series of beeps that sound like chuckling]

  • C-3PO: That malfunctioning little twirp, this is all his fault.

  • [first lines]

    C-3PO: Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor. We'll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.

  • C-3PO: There'll be no escape for the princess this time.

  • C-3PO: R2D2 where are you?

  • C-3PO: We've stopped. Wake up! Wake up!

    [R2D2 beeps]

    C-3PO: We're doomed.

  • C-3PO: Now don't you forget this! Why I should stick my neck out for you is far beyond my capacity!

  • C-3PO: [translating for R2] He says he's found the main control to the power beam that's holding the ship here; he'll try to make the precise location appear on the monitor.

    [a diagram of the power terminal appears on the screen]

    C-3PO: The tractor beam is coupled to the main reactor in seven locations. A power loss at one of the terminals will allow the ship to leave.

  • Luke Skywalker: What are you doing hiding back there?

    C-3PO: It wasn't my fault, sir, please don't deactivate me. I told him not to go, but he's faulty, malfunctioning. Kept babbling on about his mission.

  • C-3PO: I've just about had enough of you. Go that way. You'll be malfunctioning within a day, you near-sighted scrap pile. And don't let me catch you following me begging for help because you won't get it.

  • C-3PO: And I am C-3PO, human-cyborg relations. And this is my counterpart R2D2.

  • C-3PO: [seeing a metalic transport craft shining in the distance] Wait a minute... What's that? A transport? I'm saved!

    [waving his arms wildly; shouting]

    C-3PO: Over here! Hey! Hey! Help! Please, Help!

  • [R2D2 beeps]

    C-3PO: I beg your pardon, but what do you mean, "naked?"

    [R2D2 beeps]

    C-3PO: My parts are showing? Oh, my goodness, oh!

  • C-3PO: Hello, I am C-3PO, human cyborg relations. How might I serve you?

  • C-3PO: [wobbling significantly as he starts walking] I am not sure this floor is entirely stable.

  • C-3PO: I can assure you they will never get me onto one of those dreadful starships.

  • C-3PO: His high exaltedness, the Great Jabba the Hutt, has decreed that you are to be terminated immediately.

    Han Solo: Good, I hate long waits.

    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?

  • EV-9D9: Ah, new acquisitions! You are a protocol droid, are you not?

    C-3PO: I am C-3PO, human/cyborg...

    EV-9D9: [cuts him off] Yes or no will do.

    C-3PO: Umm... yes.

    EV-9D9: How many languages do you speak?

    C-3PO: I am fluent in over six million forms of communication, and can readily...

    EV-9D9: [cuts him off again] Splendid! We have been without an interpreter since our master got angry with our last protocol droid and disintegrated him.

    C-3PO: Disintegrated?

  • C-3PO: I do believe they think I am some kind of god.

    Han Solo: Well, why don't you use your divine influence and get us out of this?

    C-3PO: I beg your pardon General Solo, but that just wouldn't be proper.

    Han Solo: Proper?

    C-3PO: It's against my programming to impersonate a deity.

  • C-3PO: I'm rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

  • C-3PO: At last, Master Luke's come to rescue me!

    Bib Fortuna: Master.

    [Jabba wakes up with a start]

    Bib Fortuna: May I present Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight?

    Jabba the Hutt: [in Huttese; subtitled] I told you not to admit him!

    Luke: I must be allowed to speak.

    Bib Fortuna: He must be allowed to speak.

    Jabba the Hutt: [grabs Bib Fortuna; in Huttese] You weak minded fool! He's using an old Jedi mind trick.

    [Jabba shoves Bib Fortuna aside]

    Luke: You will bring Captain Solo and the Wookiee to me.

    [Jabba laughs]

    Jabba the Hutt: [in Huttese] Your mind powers will not work on me, boy.

    Luke: Nevertheless, I'm taking Captain Solo and his friends with me. You can either profit by this or be destroyed. It's your choice, but I warn you not to underestimate my powers.

    Jabba the Hutt: [in Huttese] There will be no bargain, my young Jedi. I shall enjoy watching you die.

  • Luke: Threepio, tell them if they don't do as you wish, you'll become angry and use your magic.

    C-3PO: But, Master Luke, what magic? I couldn't possibly...

    Luke: Just tell them.

  • C-3PO: R2, why did you have to be so brave?

  • General Madine: We have stolen a small Imperial shuttle. Disguised as a cargo ship, and using a secret Imperial code, a strike team will land on the moon and deactivate the shield generator.

    C-3PO: It sounds dangerous.

    Princess Leia: [to Han] Who have they found to pull that off?

    General Madine: General Solo, is your strike team assembled?

  • C-3PO: He says the scouts are going to show us the quickest way to the shield generator.

    Han Solo: Good. How far is it? Ask him.

    [3PO turns to ask, Han pulls him back]

    Han Solo: We need some fresh supplies too.

    [3PO turns again; Han pulls him back again]

    Han Solo: Try and get our weapons back.

    [and again]

    Han Solo: Hurry up, will ya? Haven't got all day!

  • C-3PO: Wonderful. We are now a part of the tribe.

    [an Ewok hugs Han]

    Han Solo: Just what I always wanted.

  • C-3PO: [to R2D2] If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short circuit.

  • EV-9D9: Ah, good! New acquisitions. You are a protocol droid, are you not?

    C-3PO: I am C-3PO, Human...

    EV-9D9: Yes or no will do.

    C-3PO: Oh. Well, yes.

  • C-3PO: Your Royal Highness.

    Princess Leia: But these are my friends. 3PO, tell them they must be set free.

    [C-3PO speaks with the Ewoks, they listen and shake their heads negatively]

    Han Solo: Somehow I got the feeling that didn't work very much.

  • [about the rebels attack plan]

    C-3PO: Exciting is hardly the word I would choose.

  • C-3PO: What could possibly have come over Master Luke? Is it something I did? He never expressed any unhappiness with my work.

  • C-3PO: I never knew I had it in me.

  • C-3PO: I have decided that we shall stay here.

  • Darth Vader: [deleted scene; Darth Vader and Moff Jerjerrod talk] Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.

    Moff Jerjerrod: I tell you, this station will be operational as planned.

    Darth Vader: The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.

    Moff Jerjerrod: But he asks the impossible.


    Moff Jerjerrod: I need more men.

    Darth Vader: Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives.

    Moff Jerjerrod: [scared] The Emperor's coming here?

    Darth Vader: That is correct, Commander. And he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.

    Moff Jerjerrod: We shall double our efforts.

    Darth Vader: I hope so, Commander, for your sake.

    [Jerjerrod gulps]

    Darth Vader: The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

    [he and Jerjerrod walk away. Vader goes to his room and seats himself, communicating to Luke using the Force]

    Darth Vader: Luke... Luke... Join me and the Dark Side of the Force... my son, it is the only way... Luke... Luke...

    [cut to Tatooine, where Luke constructs his new lightsaber and tests it out. R2-D2 beeps something as C-3PO talks to himself]

    C-3PO: What a forsaken place this is! Why couldn't that bounty hunter have taken Captain Solo to a more... pleasant environment?

    [R2-D2 comes out of the small cave and beeps something]

    C-3PO: We're leaving? But, what about Master Luke?

    [R2 beeps again]

    C-3PO: I thought he was going to rescue Captain Solo?

    [R2 beeps and starts rolling away]

    C-3PO: You mean, we're going to that horrible fortress alone?

    [follows after R2, who beeps again]

    C-3PO: We're doomed.

    [cut to another scene where R2 and 3PO are making their way toward Jabba's Palace]

    C-3PO: [R2 beeps a question] Of course I'm frightened, and you should be, too. Lando Calrissian and poor Chewbacca never return from this awful place.

    [R2 beeps]

    C-3PO: Don't be so sure. If I told you half the things I've heard about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short-circuit.

    [R2 sounds scared]

  • [last lines]

    Senator Bail Organa: Captain Antilles.

    Captain Antilles: Yes, Your Highness?

    Senator Bail Organa: I'm placing these droids in your care. Treat them well. Clean them up. Have the Protocol Droid's mind wiped.

    C-3PO: What?

    [R2-D2 beeps in a way that sounds like laughing]

    C-3PO: Oh, no.

  • [Captain Typho is trying to talk Padme out of leaving Coruscant without protection]

    Captain Typho: My Lady, let me come with you.

    Padmé: There is no danger. The fighting is over, and... this is personal.

    [Typho bows]

    Captain Typho: As you wish, My Lady... but I strongly disagree.

    Padmé: I'll be all right, Captain. This is something I must do myself. Besides, Threepio will look after me.

    C-3PO: Oh, dear.

    [Typho leaves; Padme and C-3PO board the Naboo skiff; Obi-Wan sneaks on board]

  • C-3PO: My lady, is there anything I might do?

    Padmé: No, thank you, 3P0.

    C-3PO: [walking away] I feel so helpless.

  • C-3PO: [to Padme] You know I think I'm getting the hang of this flying business.

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

    Han Solo: Never tell me the odds.

  • C-3PO: [Interrupting Han and Leia kissing] Sir. Sir, I've isolated the reverse, power flux coupling.

    Han Solo: Thank you. Thank you very much.

    C-3PO: Oh you're perfectly welcome, sir.

  • Leia: They're getting closer.

    Han Solo: Oh, yeah? Watch this.

    [he throws the hyperdrive lever, the engine sputters and dies]

    Leia: Watch what?

    Han Solo: I think we're in trouble.

    C-3PO: If I may say so, sir, I noticed earlier the hyperdrive motivator has been damaged. It's impossible to go to lightspeed!

    Han Solo: We're in trouble!

  • C-3PO: Don't worry about Master Luke. I'm sure he'll be all right. He's quite clever, you know... for a human being.

  • C-3PO: Oh. They've encased him in Carbonite. He should be quite well protected. If he survived the freezing process, that is.

    Darth Vader: Well, Calrissian, did he survive?

    Lando: Yes, he's alive, and in perfect hibernation.

    Darth Vader: He's all yours, bounty hunter. Reset the chamber for Skywalker.

  • C-3PO: Excuse me sir, but might I inquire as to what's going on?

    Han Solo: Why not?

    C-3PO: Impossible man.

  • [in the Asteroid Field]

    Princess Leia: We're going to get pulverized if we stay out here much longer.

    Han Solo: I'm not going to argue with that.

    C-3PO: Pulverized?

  • [the asteroid quakes]

    C-3PO: Sir, it's quite possible this asteroid is not entirely stable.

    Han Solo: Not entirely stable. I'm glad you're here to tell us these things. Chewie! Take the Professor in back and plug him into the hyperdrive!

  • C-3PO: I thought that hairy beast would be the end of me.

    [R2-D2 bleeps an inquiry]

    C-3PO: Of course I've looked better.

  • C-3PO: [R2 is outside the Hoth base, scanning the area] You must come along now R2. There's really nothing more we can do. And my joints are freezing up.

    [R2 Beeps something about Luke]

    C-3PO: Don't say things like that! Of course we'll see Master Luke again! And he'll be quite all right, you'll see!

    [to himself]

    C-3PO: Stupid little short-circuit! He'll be *quite* all right.

    [R2 beeps again and keeps scanning]

  • C-3PO: Sir, If I may venture an opinion...

    Han Solo: I'm not really interested in your opinion 3PO.

  • [Chewbacca is fixing C-3PO]

    C-3PO: Oh, yes, that's very good, I like that... Oh!

    [the lights in his eyes go out]

    C-3PO: Well, now, something's not right, because now I can't see!

    [Chewie fiddles with something and his eyes turn back on]

    C-3PO: Oh, oh, that's much better. Wait... wait. Oh, my! What have you done? I'm BACKWARDS. You flea-bitten furball! Only an overgrown mop-head like you would be stupid enough to...

    [Chewie switches 3PO off]

  • C-3PO: [on Han's escape plan] I really don't see how that is going to help! Surrender is a perfectly acceptable alternative in extreme circumstances! The Empire may be gracious enough to...

    [Han signals to Leia, who shuts 3PO down]

  • [Han heads out of the Asteroids toward a Star Destroyer]

    C-3PO: The odds of successfully surviving an attack on an Imperial Star Destroyer are approximately...

    Leia: Shut up!

  • C-3PO: [Chewbacca is carrying the dismembered C3PO on his back] If only you'd attached my legs, I wouldn't be in this ridiculous position. Now remember, Chewbacca, you have a responsibility to me, so don't do anything foolish!

  • [while the Falcon is fleeing from Imperial fighters, and R2-D2 is stitching C-3PO back together]

    C-3PO: Noisy brute. Why don't we just go to lightspeed?

    R2-D2: [beeps]

    C-3PO: We can't? How would you know the hyperdrive is deactivated?

    R2-D2: [beeps]

    C-3PO: The City's central computer told you? R2-D2, you know better than to trust a strange computer.

    [R2's welding arm shocks his ankle]

    C-3PO: Ouch! Pay attention to what you're doing!

  • [after R2-D2 gets fried]

    C-3PO: Don't blame me. I'm an interpreter. I'm not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

  • C-3PO: Master Luke, Sir, it's so good to see you fully functional again. R2 expresses his relief also.

  • [R2 is trying to open the door as Storm Troopers shoot at them; he beeps]

    C-3PO: No! We're not interested in the hyperdrive on the Millenium Falcon, it's fixed!

    [R2 beeps again]

    C-3PO: Just open the door, you stupid lug!

    [he opens the door]

    C-3PO: I never doubted him for a second! Wonderful!

  • C-3PO: I'm terribly sorry about all this. After all, he's only a Wookiee.

  • C-3PO: Sir, I don't know where your ship learned to communicate, but it has the most peculiar dialect.

  • [C-3PO and R2-D2 are first seen walking in the underground base on Ice Planet Hoth]

    C-3PO: I didn't ask you to turn on the thermal heater. I merely commented that it was freezing in the princess's chamber...

    R2-D2: [Chirps his objection]

    C-3PO: But it's SUPPOSED to be freezing! How we are ever going to dry out her clothes, I really don't know!

  • C-3PO: [in 1997 Special Edition only] Oh, this is suicide! There's nowhere to go.

  • C-3PO: That sounds like an R2 unit in there! I wonder if... Hello? How interesting.

    Stormtrooper: Who are you?

    C-3PO: Oh, my! I... I'm terribly sorry. I didn't mean to intrude. No, please don't get up.

    [the Stormtrooper shoots C-3PO]

  • C-3PO: Artoo says that the chances of survival are 725 to 1. Actually Artoo has been known to make mistakes... from time to time... Oh dear...

  • [the storm troopers are taken prisoner by Calrissian's men]

    Lando: [to Lobot, his aide] Well done. Hold them in the security tower, and keep it quiet. Move.

    [Lando's aide and their men walk off with the troops as Lando hands Leia the imperials' weapons and starts taking off Chewie's cuffs]

    Leia: What do you think you're doing?

    Lando: We're getting out of here.

    C-3PO: I knew all along. Had to be a mistake.

    Leia: [angrily] Do you think that after what you did to Han that we're going to trust you?

    [Chewie grabs Lando by the throat]

    Lando: [choking] I had no choice!

    C-3PO: What are you doing? Trust him, trust him!

    Leia: Oh, well, we understand, don't we, Chewie. You had "no choice".

    Lando: Just trying to help...

    Leia: We don't need any of your help!

    Lando: [gasps] Han! Ha- Ha...

    Leia: What?

    Lando: HAN!

    C-3PO: It sounds like Han!

    Lando: [gasping] There's still a chance to save Han! At the east... platform!

    Leia: Chewie!

    [Leia gets Chewie to drop Lando]

    C-3PO: I'm terribly sorry about all this. After all, he's only a Wookiee!

  • C-3PO: [about Lando] : Well, he seems very friendly.

    Princess Leia: Yes, very friendly...

  • [With head stuck on a battle droid's body]

    C-3PO: DIE, Jedi dogs. Oh... what did I say?

  • [observing the battle droid assembly line]

    C-3PO: Oh my goodness! Shut me down. Machines building machines. How perverse.

  • [R2-D2 is pulling C-3PO's head back towards his body]

    C-3PO: This is such a drag.

  • [his head is placed next to his body]

    C-3PO: I'm quite beside myself.

  • C-3PO: I'm programmed for etiquette, not destruction!

  • C-3PO: What's all this? A battle? There must be some mistake! I'm programmed for etiquette, not destruction!

  • C-3PO: I've had the most peculiar dream.

  • C-3PO: Master Owen, may I present two most important visitors?

    Anakin: I'm Anakin Skywalker.

    Owen Lars: [intrigued, but wary, tone] Owen Lars. This is my girlfriend, Beru.

    Beru: Hello.

    Padme: I'm Padme.

    Owen Lars: Well... I guess I'm your stepbrother. I had a feeling you might show up someday.

    Anakin: Is my mother here?

    [a one-legged Cliegg Lars appears]

    Cliegg Lars: No, she's not. Cliegg Lars. Shmi is my wife. Come inside, we've got a lot to talk about.

  • C-3PO: He says he has a message from an Obi-Wan Kenobi, Master Anakin. Do you know what he's talking about?

  • C-3PO: For a mechanic, you seem to do an incessant amount of thinking.

  • C-3PO: [to Anakin] The maker has returned!
