"É um fato pouco sabido, mas quis que Han Solo morresse no fim de Guerra nas Estrelas: Episódio VI - O Retorno de Jedi (1983). Pensei que daria mais ponderação e ressonância. Mas George Lucas não era compassivo. Ele não me quis ver morto por esses rapazes de urso de pelúcia."
- "It's a little-known fact, but I wanted Han Solo to die at the end of Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). I thought it would give more weight and resonance. But George Lucas wasn't sympathetic. He didn't want me killed by those teddy bear guys."

[Sobre gravar Indianna Jones outra vez] "ninguém quer ver um herói que tem que escolher acima seu bastão para bater em alguém, mas eu sou imóvel o suficiente para fingi-lo."

[Acknowledging that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg originally wanted another actor to play Indiana Jones]: "My playing Indy was mentioned to me about only six weeks before shooting started, but being second choice wasn't at all offensive. I would always assume that it would be normal for a director - once having worked with an actor in a particular part - not to think of him for something else. I'd presume that he'd want to accentuate the difference between the two characters by having another actor. I was more than happy when they did ask me to play Indiana Jones, because it promised to be a terrific role in a great film."

[Talking about Blade Runner (1982)]: "It could have been so much more than a cult movie."
"Starring in a science fiction film doesn't mean you have to act science fiction."
