"You can type this shit, George, but you sure can't say it." --Harrison Ford commenting to Lucas on the quality of his dialogue

"George Lucas was always the star of the student film festivals then [the 60s]. You'd look through a lot of stuff and fall asleep. But George's films would come on, and they'd be polished and professional, and you'd wonder what in hell he was doing in college." --Steven Spielberg, quoted in "World Film Directors", Volume Two

"My father provided me with a lot of business principles--a small-town retail-business ethic, and I guess I learned it. It's sort of ironic, because I swore when I was a kid I'd never do what he did. At eighteen, we had this big break, when he wanted me to go into the business and I refused, and I told him, 'There are two things I know for sure. One is that I will end up doing something with cars, whether I'm a racer, a mechanic, or whatever, and, two, that I will never be president of a company.' I guess I got outwitted." --George Lucas quoted by THE NEW YORKER, January 6, 1997

"People say my movies are just like Hollywood movies. And I say, 'I can't help it if Hollywood copies.'"-Lucas quoted in 1999 Premiere October 2, 2002
