"I am so glad I found you and didn't kill you."
Mara Jade Skywalker, to Luke Skywalker[src]

Mara: "Really? And I always thought the reason you left Tatooine was to join the Rebellion and save the galaxy."
Luke: "No, it was the food — definitely the food."
Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade Skywalker[src]
Dracmus: "We have tried everything, I assure you."
Mara: "Have you tried cash?"
Dracmus: "I am begging your pardon?"
Mara: "Cash. Money. A travel case full of credit notes. You know. A bribe. Or make it sound nice. Call it a consulting fee."
Mara Jade, offering a unique perspective on persuading Selonians to aid the New Republic[src]

Luke: "He kept calling me 'Skywalker'. Because I don't have a title—I'm not a Senator, I'm not a general any longer, I'm not an ambassador. He used the word like an insult."
Mara: "He could have called you 'Master'. Like I do sometimes."
Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade Skywalker, on Fyor Rodan[src]

Mara Jade Skywalker[src]

Luke: "I'll trust you to improve the story. Luke Skywalker goes out in a blaze of glory in battle with a red devourer."
Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker on Yuuzhan Vong–controlled Coruscant[src]

Luke: "Watch your language."
Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker, on Nirauan[src]
"I'm a lot more than Ben's mother, Corporal Lekauf. I'm Master Mara Jade Skywalker of the Jedi order." [listens to Lekauf's reply] "If you know who I am, then you also know that you'd better tell me why my son's comlink is being jammed—or spend the next six weeks in a bacta tank trying to regrow all the parts I'm going to cut off."
Mara Jade Skywalker, politely inquiring of GAG Corporal Jori Lekauf her son's whereabouts[src]
Parck: "On one side were handpicked units of Palpatine's own private army, equipped with fifteen top-line combat ships. On the other side were Commander Mitth'raw'nuruodo of the Chiss Expansionary Defense and perhaps twelve small and insignificant border patrol ships."

Leia: "I'm a diplomat, and you're not. You should have let me do the talking."
Mara: "I've been letting you do the talking, and all it's gotten us so far is an enforced vacation at this villa. I'm a businesswoman, a trader. Negotiation is my stock in trade."
Leia: "Do you call insulting our hosts negotiating?"
Mara: "Negotiating is the art of getting what you want. It's not the art of making the other side feel better."
Leia: "They aren't the 'other side.' They're our partners in this negotiation."
Mara: "If they were our partners, we wouldn't need to negotiate."
Leia Organa Solo and Mara Jade, dealing with the Selonian Overden[src]
Ben: "Gorog's no assassin! She's my best friend."
Mara: "She's an insect, Ben."

Ben: "Doesn't count. She's family. Saba is a lizard."
Mara: "Okay, maybe my best friend's a lizard."
Ben Skywalker and Mara Jade Skywalker, on the subject of best friends[src]
Karrde: "But time has never been as important to the universe as ability and results… and your ability and results have been quite impressive."
Mara: "I've been lucky."
Karrde: "Luck is certainly part of it. On the other hand, I've found that what most people call luck is often little more than raw talent combined with the ability to make the most of opportunities."
Talon Karrde and Mara Jade, discussing Mara's promotion[src]
"The wrath of the Empire truly knows no boundaries."
Mara Jade[src]
"We can't keep meeting like this, Skywalker."
Mara Jade Skywalker, deceased, to Luke Skywalker at the Lake of Apparitions[src]
Mara: "When I first met Luke, I was under a compulsion to kill him. Generally not a good sign for a lasting relationship. Such was his courage that he did not run, and did not strike me. He accepted me, as no one else had done before."
Luke: "There was a sense to Mara, when I met her, that would not let me fear her, though countless others have learned that not fearing her can be trouble. The Force brought us together, and kept bringing us together until neither of us could deny our destiny to be together forever."
Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker, exchanging vows at their Jedi wedding[src]
"There is a disturbance in the Force. Lord Vader pursues the Rebel Alliance to the remote world of Hoth. But does he truly hunt the Alliance, or is it something else that draws him there, something stronger? My Master has foreseen that Vader has an heir, a son, one who is strong in the Force, one who could destroy us all. Does Vader seek to turn him or join him? The coming battle may prove Vader's intent. I secretly hope he will betray us. I feel certain that should he waver, I will strike quickly to take his place at my Master's side."
Mara Jade[src]
Luke: "Mara… will you marry me?"
Mara: "You mean if we get out of here alive?"
Luke: "I mean regardless."
Luke Skywalker proposes to Mara Jade[src]
"During my training I have witnessed few who dared defy the Empire. My Master made certain they were always quickly... corrected. When a planet falls out of line, it too must be corrected. Sometimes this requires the unrelenting power of the entire Imperial Army. Sometimes it requires more than that. Sometimes it requires a Sith Lord."
Mara Jade[src]
Kyle: "I was deluded too easily. I thought I could control the power. Instead, I lost myself to it. I have failed."
Mara: "You haven't failed, Kyle."
Kyle: "So now I suppose you're the teacher and I'm the student."
Mara: "You should be so lucky."
Kyle Katarn and Mara Jade, after Kyle gives in to the dark side temptations of Dromund Kaas[src]
Luke: "I was just thinking about Leia's twins. Thinking about how I'm going to have to train them some day."
Mara: "You worried about when to start?"
Luke: "I'm worried about being able to do it at all."
Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade[src]
"Don't lie to me, Anakin. The desire to be out there saving the galaxy is in your blood so thick I can hear it screaming from here."
Mara Jade Skywalker, to Anakin Solo[src]
Wedge: "Mara, I know this is a lot to ask of a woman with a small baby—"
Mara: "Trust me, my capacity for mayhem is undiminished."
Wedge Antilles and Mara Jade Skywalker, with a newborn Ben Skywalker[src]
"Service to evil is still evil. What you're saying is that doing something wrong isn't really wrong if your motives are good. That's nonsense."
Mara Jade Skywalker, condemning her actions as Emperor's Hand to Luke Skywalker[src]
Mara: "Then all we have to do is cut our way through two hundred Vagaari soldiers and take over the ship."
Luke: "Something like that. You game?"
Mara: [shrugs] "Sure, why not? I didn't have anything else planned for after lunch."
Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker[src]
Mara: "Look after my apprentice, won't you? I know she's a Jedi Knight in her own right, but in some ways she's still very much a child – albeit a precocious one. I hope you can be a beneficial part of her education."
Jag: "I intend to be."
Mara Jade Skywalker, asking Jagged Fel to help guard and guide Jaina Solo[src]
"I get the proverbial bad feeling about this."
Mara Jade Skywalker[src]
Mara: "Don't you people have a conscience?"
Ganet: "We are aware of the concept, but it has no place in war."
Mara Jade Skywalker and Ganet, on Csilla[src]
Tozr: "I take it this Lumiya is our prime suspect? Who is she?"
Mara: "One of Luke's old girlfriends."
Raatu: "Ah—that explains it. And Master Lobi is the new girlfriend?"
Luke: "Not at all! Mara is—er, Mara is my wife. I don't have a girlfriend."
Raatu: "What do I know about you Jedi? With most humans, it's usually sex or love."
Tozr: "Eighty-seven percent of the time. Spice is a distant second."
Detectives Chal Tozr and Gwad Raatu question Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker, on the death of Tresina Lobi[src]
