Luke isn't content to just play with his toys. He's constantly at work modifying them, making improvements.”
Cavan Scott, Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View

"These are not the droids you're looking for," Old Guy says.
And he was right. He was so right. It was like, of course they're not!
110 agreed and then Old Guy says he can go about his business, and I'm like Yes! Yes, Old Guy! Say that! And 110 agrees again! Word for word in fact!

“Lando Calrissian loved heroes. They thought the galaxy owed them something. Like they mattered, somehow, in some bizarre way that meant the fundamental rules of reality were tilted in their favor. Heroes believed, honestly believed that things would just… work out for them. Heroes were Lando’s favorite opponents at the gambling table. The worse the odds got, the bigger they bet. Because heroes were suckers.”
