Funny / The Thrawn Trilogy

  • In Heir to the Empire, Leia goes to Kashyyyk and is greeted by a Wookiee who she can comprehend perfectly, after years of not being able to completely understand Chewbacca. This leads her to assume that Chewie had a speech impediment that he'd never told her about, which Chewie finds absolutely hilarious. It's up their new guide to explain that Chewie speaks perfectly; it's the guide who has a speech impediment, of a type that humans actually find easier to understand.
    • Undermined a moment later, when he reveals that he was used as a go-between for Imperials taking Wookiee slaves off Kashyyyk.
  • Han's Accidental Misnaming moments with the Noghri on Myrkr in The Last Command when they call him "Consort of the Lady Vader" and later "Han clan Solo".
  • Thrawn's Sarcasm Mode: "Thank you, Ferrier. Your approval means so very much to me."
  • The exchange between Han and Lando when calling back to the last time Lando flew the Falcon.
    Lando: Nice landing.
    Han: At least the communications array is still there.
    Lando: You're never going to let that go, are you?
    Han: You said, 'not a scratch.'
  • C'baoth uses a Huge Holographic Head for the first time.
    The pause symbol vanished before Thrawn could answer; but it wasn't the standard quarter-size figure that replaced it. Instead, a huge image of C'baoth's face suddenly glared out at them, jolting Pellaeon an involuntary step backwards.
    Thrawn didn't even twitch. "Good morning, Master C'baoth," the Grand Admiral said, his voice mirror smooth. "I see you've discovered the Emperor's private hologram setting."
  • Luke and Mara end up escaping a Star Destroyer ("Let's not try going through the garbage compactors."), which coincidentally has also captured the Falcon. After they make their escape, Mara notices a red light on one of the panels, and gets up to fix it. Luke's response? "Don't bother. Han's got this whole ship so crosswired it'll fly with half the systems out."
