5. Dante Hicks

Memorable Quote:Empire had the better ending. I mean, Luke gets his hand cut off, finds out Vader’s his father, Han gets frozen and taken away by Boba Fett. It ends on such a down note. I mean, that’s what life is, a series of down endings. All Jedi had was a bunch of Muppets.”

Memorable Quote: “Could’ve been worse, could’ve not met at all.”

8. Rufus

Memorable Quote: “I think it’s better to have ideas. You can change an idea, changing a belief is trickier. Life should be malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can’t generate. Life becomes stagnant.”

Memorable Quote: “You face forward, or you face the possibility of shock and damage.”

10. Holden McNeil

Played by Ben Affleck

Appearances: Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

Memorable Quote: “I love you. And not in a friendly way, although I think we’re great friends. And not in a misplaced affection, puppy-dog way, although I’m sure that’s what you’ll call it. And it’s not because you’re unattainable. I love you. Very simple, very truly.”
