|"I see you waggling your wings, Hotshot. Glad you could make it. But just cause this is the last get-together of the two shooting stars don't expect any breaks when the run begins!"
Biggs in the Marvel comic, Crucible at the beginning of the race in Beggers Canyon.
|"Gangway, Hotshot, I'm making my move!" Biggs in Crucible, during the race.|
|"Look sharp, Camie. Here they come, two shooting stars that can't be stopped!" Deak in Crucible after the race.
"That's what we say, Deak, and I didn't see anyone else proving us wrong today." Biggs, same.
|After Windy tries to contact someone about the Sand people attack and can't because of Atmospheric interference.
"By that time, the main party could be in Anchorhead. The gang's handling this fine, Luke. You game to try for one of the hoppers?" Biggs.
"Whe my Uncle's place is one of those in danger? Try an' stop me!" Luke.
"I don't think the sand people need any help!" Biggs.
|After Luke explains how he won a race at Beggers Canyon.
"You ought to take it a little easier. You may be the hottest bush pilot this side of Mos Eisley, Luke, but those little skyhoppers can be dangerous. They move awfully fast for troposheric craft- faster then they need to. Keep playin g engine jockey with one and someday, whammo!" He slammed one fist violently intohis open palm. You're going to be nothing more than a dark spot on the damp side of a canyon wall." Biggs, in ANH Novel.
|Biggs grew silent, thinking. He glanced around. They were alone out here. Everyone else was back inside the comparative coolness of the power station. As he leaned close Luke sensed an unaccustomed solemness in his friend's tone.
"Luke, I didn't come back just to say good-bye, or to crow over everyone because I got through the Academy," Again he seemed to hesitate, unsure of himself. Then he blurted out rapidly, not giving himself a chance to back down, "But I want somebody to know. I can't tell my parents."
Gaping at Biggs, Luke could only gulp, "About what? What are you talkin about?"
"I'm talking about the talk that's been going on at the Academy-and other places, Luke. Strong talking. I made some nw friends, outsystem friends. We agreed about the way certain things are developing, and--" his voice dropped conspiratorially--"when we reach one of the peripheral systems, we're going to jump ship and join the Alliance."
Luke stared back at his friend, tried to picture Biggs-- fun-loving, happy-go-lucky, live for the day Biggs-- as a patriot afire with rebellious fervor.
"You're going to join the rebellion?" he started. "You've got to be kidding. How?"
"Damp down, will you?" the bigger man cautioned, glancing furtively back toward the power station. "You've got a mouth like a crater."
"I'm sorry," Luke whispered rapiidly, "I'm quiet--listen how quiet I am. You can barely hear me..."
Biggs cut him off and continued, "A friend of mine from the Academy has a friend on Bestine who might enable us to make contact with an armed rebel unit."
"A friend of a--You're crzy," Luke announced with conviction, certain his friend had gone mad. "You could wander around forever trying to find a real rebel outpost. Most of them are only myths. This twice removed friend could be an Imerial agent. You'd end up on Kessel, or worse. If rebel outposts were so easy to find, the Empire would have wiped them out years ago."
"I know it's a long shot," Biggs admitted reluctantly, "If I don't contact them then," a peculiar light came into Bigg's eyes, a conglomeation of newfound maturity and ... somthing else- "I'll do what I can, on my own."
He stared intensely at his friend, "Luke, I'm not going to wait for the Empire to conscript me into its service. In spite of what you hear over the official channels, the rebellion is growing, spreading. And I want to be on the right side-- the side I believe in."
This is from the ANH Novel.
|"We'll stay far enought back to cover you," Biggs declared. "At that speed will you be able to pull out in time?
"Are you kidding?" Luke sneered playfully as they began their dive toward the srface. "It'll be just like Beggars Canyon back home."

|"We seem to have upset them," Biggs chortled, treating the deadly display as though it were all a show being put on for their amusement.
ANH, Battle of Yavin
|" My scope shows the tower, but I can't make out the exhaust port. It must be awfully small. Are you sure the computer can target it?" Wedge to Luke.
"It better," Biggs muttered.
