Funny "scenes" from Star Wars Books

I just finished Darksaber. . . again (I know it's not the best EU book there is, but I still like it). There is this one part that I thought was really funny:

Quote:
<p> Durga roared and reached for his smallcontrol pad, punching a fat greenish finger against one of the buttons. the Twi'lek let out a little yip of anticipatory terror -- but instead, a hapless Weeguay at abother station yowled and began to jitter as arcs of blue electrical fire curled up from the base of his booby-trapped seat. the discharge crisped his flesh, electricuting him in a instant. The Weequay's smoldering corpse slumped against his navigational station.
<p> Durga frowned and glanced down at his control pad. "Oh," he said. "Sorry, wrong button." The smell of disintegrated flesh wafted through the bridge deck in greasy, sooty wisps from the collasped body.
<p> "Well, let that be a lesson to you, then," Durga said glowering at his intended victim.

I couldn't stop snickering for a few minutes. Does anybody else know of funny "scenes" from other Star Wars books?

Hehe, yeah, i remember that.


I can remember cracking up at several points while reading SW books, but now that i try to think about it, i can't remember and specific cases.


Peace is but a shadow of death,
Desperate to forget its painful past.
And though we hope for promising years,
After shedding a thousand tears,
Yesterday's sorrow constantly nears.

Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies it remains alone.

VERY melty now

Even then, you knew they were gonna have some wild adventures (althoug they were better than expected!)

I liked Han putting Chewie in the command chair when Zsinji commed. Ticked him off SOOO much!

i liked the part in shadows of the empire:

security droid: your name, sir?

katarn: A man with a blaster about to shoot you (or something like that)

and the droid answers his name like that. was pretty funny.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I think you mean Dash. Kyle wasn't in Shadows (though it sounds like something he'd say... )

Dialouge between Lorn Pavon and his droid are great in Shadow Hunter. One in particular.

Lorn: You bastard

Droid: Bastard. One born with a single parent. Second definition, one very.... yeah, we all know the definition.

or later when fleeing from Maul with Darsha Assant.

Lorn: Who pissed in your power couplings?

---------------------------

Kyle in JK (I know its not a book, but they're great!)

Kyle: Leaving so soon? (blows 88's arm off)

Later when Kyle meets 8t88 again, just before his first duel with Yun.

Kyle: I should have aimed for your head when I had the chance
8t88: A lost oppurtunity....



Like to read? Like fantasy stories? Like doing people you've never met in person favors? Then read and review my original movie screenplay! You will, you must. It is your destiny....

donos: pretty, what do we blow up first?
wedge:wright that down, that ought to be the wraith squadron slogan.

wedge: we'll be doing as much work on the ground; sabotage, subversion, intrusion, as flying
phanan: assassination?
wedge: if you can find a way for us to infiltrate and surgically destroy an imperial base without our enemies calling it assassination, id like to speak with you after this meeting
phanan: thats fine, i just wanted to know. actually i dont mind assassination.

kell: attention implacable, be advised you've just become the victims of dinner squadron.
runt: and silly squadron
kell: consider yourselves humiliated and welcome to folor. out.

zsinj: you realize you have cost me very dearly.
han: i dont have much to offer in compensation, maybe i could let you kiss my wookiee.

and pretty much any conversations involving face and phanan were funny. i miss ton.

All the Wraith's book are hilarious. Especially when Phanan talks. And the jokes about Kettch

The Wraith Squadron books definitely top the list for SW humour... every scene involving Lieutenant Kettch just cracked me up.
"Yub yub, Commander!"

I, Jedi also has plenty of funny bits. The scene on the Errant Venture with the 'defective' stun baton... that was great. And anything involving Keevy was funny too.

ok.. ill start quoting a funny piece of the Wraith Squadron books everytime i post here.

Wes "You look like you've fought a few rounds with a rancor. "
Wedge "Thanks, Wes. I'm sure General Crespin will appreciate that comparison."


"lets get started. Who is first?"
Janson consulted his Datapad. "His name his Kettch, and he's and Ewok."
Wedge came upright. "No."
"Oh yes. Determined to fight. You should hear him say, 'Yub, yub.' He makes it a battle cry."

"Pretty, what do we blow up first?" <- a classic

Janson: ". . . . Sorry, I have to run, have to figure out what to razz Wedge about."
Donos: "I'm taking career advice from a 9 tear old."



Lara: "May we come in?"
Face: "I'm not decent."
Lara: "When are you ever?"
They walk in Face's room
Lara: "What are you doing?"
Face: "Learning to play a musical instrument with the power of my mind."

wedge: "Well who is next? A mynock? A womprat?"
Wes: "My you are getting paranoid."


The scarred pilot said, "you know, if I had even the tiniest control over the force, what I'd do with it?"
She shook her head.
"On those long missions, I'd scratch that little spot in the center of my back i can never reach . . . "
She stood up fast.
"Go ahead, make fun."
"Oh come on. You think Luke Skywalker doesn't do that?"

Cool Guy SoA

starfighters of adumar had loads of funny stuff...lemme see if i can remember some of them.

"what, exactly [are we going to do now]?" -hobbie

"we're gonna try to subvert an imperial admiral" - wedge

"oh. something easy. while you're doin that, why don't Wes & I smuggle ourselves aboard the Agonizer and destroy her with thrown rocks?"

"(grinning) with the right tools...you could probably do that. in the meantime we have the right tools to subvert our imperial admiral"

"what tools?"

"oh, wes' maturity, your optimism, and my diplomatic skills"

"(burrying face in hands) we're doomed"

lol. couldn't stop laughing when i read that one. here's another one...
"why didn't you bring tycho up with u? he's your wingman. and he's better with records" -wes

"i need someone to be in charge on the ground" -wedge

"i can be in charge on the ground"

"oh, that'd be good. u & hobbie running thru the streets of cartann... taking charge when a delicate political disaster strikes. here's an example. a noble of cartann comes to you & says '...i'm here to request asylum in the new republic' what do YOU say?"

"is she good-looking?"

cracked up after that one, too....the book is saturated with that sort of stuff. aaron allston rox....

There was this one part in Starfighters of Adumar... Let's see if I can recall it...

(Wes just stepped up to fight this Adumari noble in a blastsword duel)

Wes: Thanaer, your widow sure is pretty.

Before the duel commences

Wes: Wait! Look, it's a bantha! (waves blastsword furiously to create a crudely made bantha)

Wes: Not familiar with banthas? How about this? (waves furiously again) It's an Adumari farumme!!

Thanaer: Can we get on with this?

Wes: Wait just one more! (draws a stick figure with a circle too small to be a head) Look, It's Thanaer ke Sekae!

I thought that part was so hilarious. I kept some parts out though, like when they spoke to the perator of Cartann

Thumbs up SoA

yeah...that one got a few laughs..hehe..there're too many funny scenes in SoA to mention...the post-make-out-with-iella-session which wedge had with wes ("or more, importantly, was it in the part of your brain which u use or was is in the majority portion?"), the scene where they all were enroute to yedagon (wedge:"she's come along about 2, maybe 3 years since the other night...maybe we can build a weapon outa the process and shoot janson a few times" wes: "i heard that") and several others besides....damn, that book was worth every cent.

Lara: "What are you doing?"
Face: "Learning to play a musical instrument with the power of my mind."

dont forget what lara said after that (" I thought so")....that was funny, too. then there's her "i read it somewhere" explanation for where she'd heard of the "unwritten law" on lieutenanthood. hehe.
