- "Oh, nice to see a familiar face."
"E chu ta!"
- ―C-3PO and E-3PO
E-3PO was a silver 3PO protocol droid who was present in Cloud City, a tibanna gas mining colony that floated in the Life Zone of the planet Bespin, shortly after the Battle of Hoth. After exiting a room of Imperial stormtroopers, it was greeted by a fellow 3PO unit known as C-3PO, but E-3PO replied with the rude Huttese phrase e chu ta in response and continued down the hallway. After calling his fellow droid rude, C-3PO heard an R2-series astromech droid inside the room that E-3PO had exited and, believing that it was his friend R2-D2, entered to investigate the sound, but instead of finding R2, he was instead discovered by a stormtrooper and blasted to pieces.
