Funny: Return of the Jedi
  • Dude, there is nothing more funny than watching a bunch of Ewoks bowing to C-3P0. Except perhaps when the run away in fear of his magic.
    • And if you carefully watch the scene when Threepio reveals that the Ewoks think he's a god, Luke is desperately trying not to start laughing. And when Threepio says that he's not programmed to impersonate a deity, Luke really struggles not to crack up.
  • When the gang is made "part of the tribe" one of the Ewoks gives Han a hug. Chewie gets multiple hugs, much to his dismay. Han tries to look on the bright side.
    Han: Well, short help is better than no help at all.
    • Plus, some of the ways the Ewoks take out the Imperial troops. For instance, a speeder bike is lassooed by the steering vane and whirls around into a tree, the pilot screaming all the while.
  • Poor Threepo, no respect at all.
    C-3PO: He says the scouts are going to show us the quickest way to the shield generator.
    Han: Good. How far is it? Ask him.
    (3PO turns to ask, Han pulls him back)
    Han: We need some fresh supplies too.
    (3PO turns again; Han pulls him back again)
    Han: Try and get our weapons back.
    (and again)
    Han: Hurry up, will ya? Haven't got all day!
    • And Han turns him around again as the camera cuts away.
    • Also hilarious is the Double Take 3PO does at the end.
  • You can tell that Luke and Han don't think very highly of themselves when they talk like this.
    Han: Together again, huh?
    Luke: Wouldn't miss it.
    Han: How we doin'?
    Luke: Same as always.
    Han: That bad, huh?
    Han: (confidently) I think my vision's getting better. Instead of a big dark blur I see a big light blur. (cue an epic eye roll from Luke)
  • When the group is caught in an Ewok trap.
    Han: Great Chewie! Great! Always thinking with your stomach!
  • When Luke announces, "This is your last chance, Jabba. Free us...or die!" It just sounds like an empty, pathetic threat when he says it, even though he and his friends end up laying waste to Jabba's court.
  • Leia's friendship with Wicket the Ewok. Also a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming.
  • For some reason, Salacious Crumb the creepy-little monkey thing always gets a chuckle out of This Troper. Maybe it's because he looks and acts like a demented Muppet?
    • It's Original Trilogy Star Wars. For all intents and purposes, he is a demented Muppet.
  • The Meaningful Echo / Call Back at the bunker, when Han sees that Leia is concealing a blaster:
    Han: I love you.
    Leia: I know.
    Stormtrooper: Hands up! Stand up!
    [Leia whirls around Han and shoots the stormtroopers]
  • Han's reaction when Leia breaks the news about Luke being her brother. It's hilarious as his expression goes from "What the hell?" to "YES!!"
    • What really sells it, is you know he was thinking about that infamous kiss in Episode 5. His face was pretty much the same face everyone else had thinking about that kiss in hindsight.
      • Leia must realize this, which is why she kissed him.
  • Luke: 3PO, 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: You see, Master Luke? They didn't believe me. Just as I said they wouldn't.
    • Luke uses the Force to make C-3PO float, making the Ewoks tremble in fear. But 3PO's reaction is much funnier.
    Luke: Thanks, 3PO.
    C-3PO: (dazed) I never knew I had it in me.
  • The newly-added NOOOOOOOOOOOO! during the scene with the Emperor torturing Luke and Vader killing him for the Blu-Ray releases. Evidently Lucas didn't have enough confidence in his viewers to understand the desperate conflict within Vader through us looking at his emotionless mask and having the dramatic music play, and decided that we needed some kind of indication that Vader was going to kill Palpatine and not, say, lift him up to change a lightbulb.
  • In a deleted scene of the bunker on Endor, when the famous commander says You Rebel Scum!, in the deleted scene, Han mouths "Scum?"
  • Yoda: "When 900 years old you reach, look as good, you will not."
  • When Luke arrives at Jabba's palace, Threepio says "At last, Master Luke's come to rescue me!", even though Leia's also in the room, stripped practically naked and held on a leash by Jabba.
    • And the fact the was left out of the loop.
    • His reaction when Luke's message reveals that he's being gifted to Jabba is utterly priceless ("Artoo, you're playing the wrong message!").
  • Chewie and two other Ewoks swinging on a vine to hijack one of the Walkers. Chewie's Tarzan Yell sells it.
  • The battle above the sarlacc pit. Despite being outmatched and having a blind crewmember, the rebels manage to beat all of Jabba's fully-armed mercenaries by basically letting gravity take its course. That sarlacc must have been really happy!
    • Boba Fett, the bounty hunter that spent the majority of The Empire Strikes Back being set up as an arch-enemy to the non-Jedi characters, is beaten when a blind Han Solo bumps into him, setting off his jetpack which sends him crashing into a barge and dropping straight into the sarlacc's throat. Then comes the belch, just to seal his humiliation.
  • Funny Background Event: Bib Fortuna mugging for the camera when Jabba catches Han and Leia.
