Supreme Chancellor: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker: No.
Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
Anakin Skywalker: He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor: He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

Darth Vader: Where is Padme? Is she safe? Is she all right?
Darth Sidious: It seems in your anger... you killed her.
Darth Vader: I... I couldn't have! She was alive; I felt it... I... Nooooooo!

Some people can read War and Peace and come away thinking it's a simple adventure story. Others can read the ingredients on a chewing gum wrapper and unlock the secrets of the universe.

Anakin Skywalker: Because of Obi-Wan?

What we require now is a feat of linguistic legerdemain and a degree of intrepidity.

Captain Spock

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.

[Biff is waxing George's car, it's a silver BMW]
George McFly: Uh... now Biff, I want make sure that we get two coats of wax this time. Not just one.

George McFly: Now Biff, don't con me!
Biff Tannen: I-I'm-I'm sorry, Mr. McFly. I-I meant I was just starting on the second coat.
George McFly: Ahh... Biff. What a character. Always trying to get away with something. I've had to stay on top of Biff ever since High School. Although if it wasn't for him...
Lorraine Baines: We never would have fallen in love.
George McFly: That's right.

Ariadne: Why is it so important to dream?
Cobb: Because, in my dreams we are together.

Neo: It ends tonight.
Agent Smith: I know it does, I've seen it. That's why the rest of me is just going to enjoy the show because we already know that I'm the one that beats you.
