When completed, this ultimate weapon will spell certain doom for the small band of rebels struggling to restore freedom to the galaxy…

Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi quotes

Luke: I’ll not leave you here. I’ve got to save you.
Anakin: You already have, Luke.

Luke: Master Yoda, you can’t die.
Yoda: Strong am I with the Force, but not that strong.

Luke: Your thoughts betray you, Father. I feel the good in you, the conflict.
Darth Vader: There is no conflict.
Luke: You couldn’t bring yourself to kill me before and I don’t believe you’ll destroy me now.
Darth Vader: You underestimate the power of the Dark Side. If you will not fight, then you will meet your destiny.

Yoda: That face you make… look I so old to young eyes?
Luke: No. Of course not.
Yoda: I do. Yes, I do. Sick have I become, old and weak… When nine hundred years old *you* reach, look as good *you* will not, hmm?

Han Solo: Who are you?
Princess Leia: Someone who loves you.

Yoda: No more training do you require. Already know you, that which you need.
Luke: Then I am a Jedi.
Yoda: No. Not yet. One thing remains. Vader. You must confront Vader. Then, only then, a Jedi will you be. And confront him you will.

Darth Vader: Luke… help me take this mask off.
Luke: But you’ll die.
Darth Vader: Nothing… can stop that now. Just for once… let me… look on you with my *own* eyes.
Anakin: Now… go, my son. Leave me.
Luke: No. You’re coming with me. I’ll not leave you here, I’ve got to save you.
Anakin: You already… have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me. Tell your sister… you were right.
Luke: Father… I won’t leave you.

Darth Vader: Obi-Wan has taught you well.

Admiral Ackbar: We have no choice, General Calrissian! Our cruisers can’t repel firepower of that magnitude!
Lando Calrissian: Han will have that shield down. We’ve got to give him more time!

Han Solo: Boba Fett? Boba Fett? Where?

Lando Calrissian: That blast came from the Death Star! That thing’s operational!

Princess Leia: Luke, tell me. What’s troubling you?
Luke: Vader’s here, now, on this moon.
Princess Leia: How do you know?
Luke: I feel his presence. He’s come for me. He can feel when I’m near. That’s why I have to go. As long as I stay, I’m endangering the group and our mission. I have to face him.
Princess Leia: Why?
Luke: [pause] He’s my father.

Han Solo: [flying across the deserts of Tatooine] I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big bright blur.
Luke: There’s nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.
Han Solo: You’re gonna die here, you know. Convenient.

Luke: Master Yoda… is Darth Vader my father?
Yoda: [avoiding the subject] Rest I need. Yes. Rest.
Luke: Yoda, I must know. If you know, tell me.
Yoda: Your father he is.
Yoda: Told you, did he?
Luke: Yes.
Yoda: Unexpected this is. And unfortunate.
Luke: Unfortunate that I know the truth?
Yoda: No! Unfortunate that you rushed to face him… that incomplete was your training. That… not ready for the burden were you.

Han Solo: I’m sure Luke wasn’t on that thing when it blew.
Princess Leia: He wasn’t. I can feel it.
Han Solo: You love him,
Han Solo: don’t you?
Princess Leia: Yes.
Han Solo: All right. I understand. Fine. When he comes back, I won’t get in the way.
Princess Leia: Oh, Han, it’s not like that at all.
Princess Leia: He’s my brother.

C-3PO: R2, why did you have to be so brave?

Mon Mothma: Many Bothans died to bring us this information.

Luke: Search your feelings, Father, you can’t do this. I feel the conflict within you. Let go of your hate.
Darth Vader: It is too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.
Luke: Then my father is truly dead.

Princess Leia: But, why must you confront him?
Luke: Because, there is good in him. I’ve felt it. He won’t turn me over to the Emperor. I can save him. I can turn him back to the good side. I have to try.

Luke: I will not fight you, father.
Darth Vader: You are unwise to lower your defenses!

Darth Vader: I see you have constructed a new light saber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are powerful as the Emperor has foreseen.

Princess Leia: General, count me in.

Han Solo: I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big light blur.
Luke: There’s nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.
Han Solo: You’re going to die here, you know. Convenient.

C-3PO: I do believe they think I am some kind of god.
Han Solo: Well, why don’t you use your divine influence and get us out of this?
C-3PO: I beg your pardon General Solo, but that just wouldn’t be proper.
Han Solo: Proper?
C-3PO: It’s against my programming to impersonate a deity.

Luke: If I don’t make it back, you’re the only hope for the Alliance.
Princess Leia: Luke, don’t talk that way. You have a power I don’t understand and could never have.
Luke: You’re wrong, Leia. You have that power too. In time you’ll learn to use it as I have. The Force runs strong in my family. My father has it. I have it. And… my sister has it. Yes. It’s you, Leia.
Princess Leia: I know. Somehow, I’ve always known.

Luke: Never. I’ll never turn to the Dark Side. You’ve failed, your highness. I am a Jedi, like my father before me.
The Emperor: So be it… Jedi!

Han Solo: I love you.
Princess Leia: I know.

Lando Calrissian: Break off the attack! The shield is still up!
Wedge Antilles: I get no reading. Are you sure?
Lando Calrissian: Pull up! All craft, pull up!
Admiral Ackbar: Take evasive action! Green group, stick close to holding section MV-7!
Mon Calamari: Admiral! We have enemy ships in sector 47!
Admiral Ackbar: It’s a trap!

Yoda: Soon will I rest, yes, forever sleep. Earned it I have.
Luke: Master Yoda, you can’t die.
Yoda: Ah, strong am I with the Force, but not that strong. Twilight is upon me, and soon, night must fall. That is the way of things. The way of the Force.

The Emperor: I’m looking forward to completing your training. In time you will call *me* master.
Luke: You’re gravely mistaken. You won’t convert me as you did my father.
The Emperor: Oh no, my young Jedi. You will find that it is you who are mistaken, about a great many things.

The Emperor: Come, boy, see for yourself. From here, you will witness the final destruction of the Alliance and the end of your insignificant rebellion.
The Emperor: You want this, don’t you? The hate is swelling in you now. Take your Jedi weapon. Use it. I am unarmed. Strike me down with it. Give in to your anger. With each passing moment you make yourself more my servant.
Luke: No.
The Emperor: It is unavoidable. It is your destiny. You, like your father, are now mine.

The Emperor: Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you.

C-3PO: I’m rather embarrassed, General Solo, but it appears that you are to be the main course at a banquet in my honor.

Lando Calrissian: Don’t worry, my friend’s down there. He’ll have that shield down in time.
Lando Calrissian: Or this’ll be the shortest offensive of all time.

Han Solo: Together again, huh?
Luke: Wouldn’t miss it.
Han Solo: How we doin’?
Luke: Same as always.
Han Solo: That bad, huh?

Luke: Threepio, tell them if they don’t do as you wish, you’ll become angry and use your magic.
C-3PO: But, Master Luke, what magic? I couldn’t possibly…
Luke: Just tell them.

Jabba the Hutt: You may have been a good smuggler, but now you’re Bantha fodder.

Han Solo: I have a really bad feeling about this.

Luke: Soon I’ll be dead, and you with me.
The Emperor: Perhaps you refer to the imminent attack of your rebel fleet? Yes, I assure you, we are quite safe from your friends here.
Luke: Your overconfidence is your weakness.
The Emperor: Your faith in your friends is yours.

Han Solo: [to Chewie about the Ewoks] Well, short help is better than no help at all.

Princess Leia: Luke, what’s wrong?
Luke: Leia, do you remember your mother? Your real mother?
Princess Leia: Just a little bit. She died when I was very young.
Luke: What do you remember?
Princess Leia: Just… images really. Feelings.
Luke: Tell me.
Princess Leia: She was… very beautiful. Kind, but sad. Why are you asking me this?
Luke: I have no memory of my mother. I never knew her.

Imperial Officer: You rebel scum.

Darth Vader: The Emperor has been expecting you.
Luke: I know, father.
Darth Vader: So, you have accepted the truth?
Luke: I have accepted that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father.
Darth Vader: That name no longer has any meaning for me!

Moff Jerjerrod: Lord Vader, this is an unexpected pleasure. We are honored by your presence…
Darth Vader: You may dispense with the pleasantries, Commander. I’m here to put you back on schedule.
Moff Jerjerrod: I assure you, Lord Vader. My men are working as fast as they can.
Darth Vader: Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.

Moff Jerjerrod: The Emperor’s coming here?
Darth Vader: That is correct, Commander. And, he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.
Moff Jerjerrod: We shall double our efforts.
Darth Vader: I hope so, Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as forgiving as I am.

Lando Calrissian: Split up and head back to the surface. And see if you can get a few of those TIE fighters to follow you.

C-3PO: Exciting is hardly the word I would choose.

Darth Vader: His light saber.
The Emperor: Ah, yes. A Jedi’s weapon, much like your father’s. By now you must know that your father can never be turned from the Dark Side. So will it be with you.

Han Solo: Well, look at you! A General, huh?
Lando Calrissian: Someone must have told them all about my little maneuver at the battle of Taanab.
Han Solo: Well, don’t look at me, pal. I just said you were a fair pilot. I didn’t know they were looking for somebody to *lead* this crazy attack.
Lando Calrissian: I’m surprised they didn’t ask you to do it.
Han Solo: Well, who says they didn’t? Only I ain’t crazy.

Luke: Come with me. Leave everything behind.
Darth Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don’t know the power of the Dark Side. I must obey my master.

Darth Vader: A small rebel force has penetrated the shield and landed on Endor.
The Emperor: Yes, I know.
Darth Vader: My son is with them.
The Emperor: Are you sure?
Darth Vader: I have *felt* him, my master.
The Emperor: Strange that I have not. I wonder if your feelings on this matter are clear, Lord Vader.
Darth Vader: They are clear, my master.

C-3PO: What could possibly have come over Master Luke? Is it something I did? He never expressed any unhappiness with my work.

Princess Leia: I… I can’t tell you.
Han Solo: Did you tell Luke? Is that who you could tell?

Luke: I’ll meet you back at the fleet.
Princess Leia: Hurry. The Alliance should be assembled by now.
Luke: I will.
Han Solo: Hey, Luke, thanks. Thanks for coming after me. I owe you one.

Darth Vader: Do they have a code clearance?
Admiral Piett: It’s an older code, sir, but it checks out. I was about to clear them.

Lando Calrissian: Here goes nothing.

C-3PO: I never knew I had it in me.

The Emperor: And now, young Skywalker… you will die.

The Emperor: Rise my friend.
Darth Vader: The Death Star will be completed on schedule.
The Emperor: You’ve done well, Lord Vader. And now I sense you wish to continue your search for young Skywalker.
Darth Vader: Yes, my Master.
The Emperor: Patience, my friend. In time, he will seek *you* out, and when he does, you must bring him before me. He has grown strong. Only together can we turn him to the Dark Side of the Force.
Darth Vader: As you wish.
The Emperor: Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen.

Darth Vader: He will come to me?
The Emperor: I have foreseen it. His compassion for you will be his undoing. He will come to you and then you will bring him before me.
Darth Vader: As you wish.

General Madine: We have stolen a small Imperial shuttle. Disguised as a cargo ship, and using a secret Imperial code, a strike team will land on the moon and deactivate the shield generator.
C-3PO: It sounds dangerous.
Princess Leia: Who have they found to pull that off?
General Madine: General Solo, is your strike team assembled?

Lando Calrissian: That was too close.

C-3PO: I have decided that we shall stay here.

Lando Calrissian: All right, Wedge. Go for the power regulator on the north tower.
Wedge Antilles: Copy, Gold Leader. I’m already on my way out.

Admiral Piett: Shall I hold them?
Darth Vader: No. Leave them to me. I will deal with them myself.

Jabba the Hutt: This bounty hunter is my kind of scum: fearless and inventive.

Princess Leia: It only takes one to sound the alarm.
Han Solo: Then we’ll do it real quiet-like.

Luke: Vader’s on that ship.
Han Solo: Now don’t get jittery, Luke. There are a lot of command ships. Keep your distance, though, Chewie, but don’t *look* like you’re trying to keeping your distance.
[Chewie barks a question]
Han Solo: *I* don’t know. Fly casual.

Han Solo: 3PO. You tell that slimy piece of worm-ridden filth, he’ll get no such pleasure from us.
[to Chewbacca]
Han Solo: Right?

Admiral Piett: I have my orders from the Emperor himself. He has something special planned for them. We only need to keep them from escaping.

Jabba the Hutt: There will be no bargain, young Jedi. I shall enjoy watching you die.

Mon Mothma: The Emperor’s made a critical error, and the time for our attack has come.

Lando Calrissian: Watch yourself Wedge, Three from above!
Wedge Antilles: Red Three, Red Two, pull in!
Red Two: Got it.
Red Two: Three of them coming in, twenty degrees.
Wedge Antilles: Cut to the left, I’ll take the leader.

Admiral Ackbar: The Shield is down! Commence attack on the Death star’s main reactor.
Lando Calrissian: We’re on our way, Red group, Gold group, all fighters follow me. Ha ha ha, I told you they’d do it!

Stardestroyer Controller #1: Sir! We’ve lost our bridge deflector shield!
Admiral Piett: Intensify the forward batteries, I don’t want anything to get through.
Admiral Piett: Intensify forward fire power!
Imperial Officer: Too late!

Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back quotes

Princess Leia: Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.
Han Solo: Who’s scruffy-looking?

Yoda: You must unlearn what you have learned.

Darth Vader: Impressive. Most impressive. Obi-Wan has taught you well. You have controlled your fear. Now, release your anger. Only your hatred can destroy me.

Han Solo: No! Stop, Chewie, stop! Chewie! Chewie this won’t help me! Hey! Save your strength. There’ll be another time. The Princess. You have to take care of her. You hear me? Huh?

Princess Leia: I love you.
Han Solo: I know.

C-3PO: Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.
Han Solo: Never tell me the odds.

Emperor: The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi.
Darth Vader: If he could be turned, he would be a powerful ally.
Emperor: Yes. Yes. He would be a great asset. Can it be done?
Darth Vader: He will join us or die, my master.

Darth Vader: What is thy bidding, my master?
Emperor: There is a great disturbance in the Force.
Darth Vader: I have felt it.
Emperor: We have a new enemy, the young Rebel who destroyed the Death Star. I have no doubt this boy is the offspring of Anakin Skywalker.
Darth Vader: How is that possible?
Emperor: Search your feelings, Lord Vader. You will know it to be true. He could destroy us.
Darth Vader: He’s just a boy. Obi-Wan can no longer help him.
Emperor: The Force is strong with him. The son of Skywalker must not become a Jedi.
Darth Vader: If he could be turned, he will become a powerful ally.
Emperor: Yes. He would be a great asset. Can it be done?
Darth Vader: He will join us or die, my master.

Darth Vader: The force is with you, young Skywalker, but you are not a Jedi yet.

Darth Vader: Your destiny lies with me Skywalker. Obi-Wan knew this to be true.

Captain Lennox: Good, our first catch of the day.

Princess Leia: You have your moments. Not many of them, but you do have them.

Luke: I won’t fail you. I’m not afraid.
Yoda: You will be. You… will… be.

Lando: Why, you slimy, double-crossing, no-good swindler.

Boba Fett: What if he doesn’t survive? He’s worth a lot to me.
Darth Vader: The Empire will compensate you, if he dies. Put him in.

Darth Vader: Apology accepted, Captain Needa.

Darth Vader: He’s all yours, bounty hunter.

Darth Vader: All too easy.

Han Solo: Well, that was a long time ago, I’m sure he’s forgotten about that.

Princess Leia: I have a bad feeling about this…

Yoda: No, no, there is no why. Nothing more will I teach you today. Clear your mind of questions.

Darth Vader: Don’t fail me again, Admiral.

Lando: They told me they fixed it! I *trusted* them to *fix* it! It’s not my fault!

Princess Leia: I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.
Han Solo: Laugh it up, fuzzball.

C-3PO: Artoo says that the chances of survival are 725 to 1. Actually Artoo has been known to make mistakes… from time to time… Oh dear…

Luke: I don’t, I don’t believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.

Princess Leia: Well, I guess you don’t know everything about women yet.

Yoda: I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience.
Obi-Wan: He will learn patience.
Yoda: Much anger in him… like his father.
Obi-Wan: Was I any different when you taught me?

Darth Vader: I am altering the deal. Pray I don’t alter it any further.

Darth Vader: There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millennium Falcon. You are free to use any methods necessary, but I want them alive. No disintegrations.
Boba Fett: As you wish.

C-3PO: Sir, it’s quite possible this asteroid is not entirely stable.
Han Solo: Not entirely stable. I’m glad you’re here to tell us these things. Chewie! Take the Professor in back and plug him into the hyperdrive!

Princess Leia: Occasionally, maybe… when you aren’t acting like a scoundrel.
Han Solo: Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.

Han Solo: YOUR ship? Hey, remember you lost her to me, fair and square.

Darth Vader: You may take Captain Solo to Jabba the Hutt after I have Skywalker.
Boba Fett: He’s no good to me dead.
Darth Vader: He will not be permanently damaged.

Yoda: Told you I did. Reckless is he. Now, matters are worse.
Obi-Wan: That boy is our last hope.
Yoda: No. There is another.

Princess Leia: This bucket of bolts’s never gonna get us past that blockade.

Lando: Lord Vader, what about Leia and the Wookiee?
Darth Vader: They must never again leave this city.
Lando: That was never a condition of our agreement, nor was giving Han to this bounty hunter!
Darth Vader: Perhaps you think you’re being treated unfairly?
Lando: No.
Darth Vader: Good. You know it would be unfortunate if I had to leave a garrison here.
Lando: This deal is getting worse all the time!

Darth Vader: You are beaten. It is useless to resist. Don’t let yourself be destroyed as Obi-Wan did.

C-3PO: Don’t blame me. I’m an interpreter. I’m not supposed to know a power socket from a computer terminal.

Darth Vader: You have failed me for the last time, Admiral. Captain Piett?
Captain Piett: Yes, my lord?
Darth Vader: Make ready to land our troops beyond their energy field, and deploy the fleet, so that nothing gets off the system.
Darth Vader: You are in command now, Admiral Piett.

Han Solo: I think we’re in trouble.
C-3PO: If I may say so, sir, I noticed earlier the hyperdrive motivator has been damaged. It’s impossible to go to lightspeed.
Han Solo: We’re in trouble.

Darth Vader: Luke, you can destroy the Emperor. He has foreseen this. It is your destiny. Join me, and together we can rule the galaxy as father and son.

Han Solo: That’s two you owe me junior.

Lando: I had no choice. They arrived right before you did. I’m sorry.
Han Solo: I’m sorry too.

Darth Vader: What is it, General?
General Veers: My Lord, the fleet has moved out of lightspeed. Com Scan has detected an energy field protecting an area of the sixth planet of the Hoth System. The field is strong enough to deflect any bombardment.
Darth Vader: The Rebels are alerted to our presence. Admiral Ozzel came out of lightspeed too close to the system.
General Veers: He felt surprise was wiser…
Darth Vader: He is as clumsy as he is stupid. General, prepare your troops for a surface attack.
General Veers: Yes, my Lord.

Luke: Leia… Hear me, Leia…
Princess Leia:Luke… We’ve got to go back.
Lando: What?
Princess Leia: I know where Luke is!

Darth Vader: I do not want the Emperor’s prize damaged. We will test it on Captain Solo.

Darth Vader: You have learned much, young one.
Luke: You’ll find I’m full of surprises.

C-3PO: Don’t worry about Master Luke. I’m sure he’ll be all right. He’s quite clever, you know… for a human being.

Princess Leia: Some day you’re gonna be wrong, I just hope I’m there to see it.

Luke: Chewie, I’ll be waiting for your signal. Take care, you two. May the force be with you.

Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don’t make me destroy you.
Darth Vader: Luke, you do not yet realize your importance. You have only begun to discover your power. Join me, and I will complete your training. With our combined strength, we can end this destructive conflict and bring order to the galaxy.
Luke: I’ll never join you!
Darth Vader: If you only knew the power of the Dark Side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.
Luke: He told me enough! He told me *you* killed him!
Darth Vader: No. *I* am your father.
Luke: No. No. That’s not true. That’s impossible!
Darth Vader: Search your feelings, you *know* it to be true!
Luke: No! No!

Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope quotes

Obi-Wan: Mos Eisley spaceport: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

Obi-Wan: Use the Force, Luke.

Obi-Wan: That’s no moon. It’s a space station.

Stormtrooper: Let me see your identification.
Obi-Wan: [with a small wave of his hand] You don’t need to see his identification.
Stormtrooper: We don’t need to see his identification.
Obi-Wan: These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.
Stormtrooper: These aren’t the droids we’re looking for.
Obi-Wan: He can go about his business.
Stormtrooper: You can go about your business.
Obi-Wan: Move along.
Stormtrooper: Move along… move along.

Darth Vader: The Force is strong with this one.

Governor Tarkin: The Jedi are extinct, their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that’s left of their religion.

Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone.

Obi-Wan: The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.

Princess Leia: Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Obi-Wan: I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

Darth Vader: I have you now!

Admiral Motti: Any attack made by the Rebels against this station would be a useless gesture, no matter what technical data they have obtained. This station is now the ultimate power in the universe! I suggest we use it!

Darth Vader: Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Admiral Motti: Don’t try to frighten us with your sorcerer’s ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient Jedi religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you enough clairvoyance to find the rebels’ hidden fortress…

Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Governor Tarkin: Enough of this! Vader, release him!
Darth Vader: As you wish.

Han Solo: Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

Princess Leia: Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you’re my only hope.

Luke: I have a very bad feeling about this.

Luke: If there’s a bright center to the universe, you’re on the planet that it’s farthest from.

Luke: You know, I think that R2 unit we bought may have been stolen.

Uncle Owen: What makes you think that?

Luke: Well, I stumbled across a recording while I was cleaning him. He says that he belongs to someone named Obi-Wan Kenobi. I thought he might have meant old Ben. Do you know what he’s talking about?

Princess Leia: No! Alderaan is peaceful! We have no weapons, you can’t possibly…
Governor Tarkin: You would prefer another target, a military target? Then name the system! I grow tired of asking this so it will be the last time: *Where* is the rebel base?
Princess Leia: …Dantooine. They’re on Dantooine.
Governor Tarkin: There. You see, Lord Vader, she can be reasonable. Continue with the operation; you may fire when ready.

Governor Tarkin: You’re far too trusting. Dantooine is too remote to make an effective demonstration – but don’t worry; we will deal with your rebel friends soon enough.

Obi-Wan: I have something here for you. Your father wanted you to have this when you were old enough, but your uncle wouldn’t allow it. He feared you might follow old Obi-Wan on some damn fool idealistic crusade like your father did.

Luke: What is it?

Obi-Wan: Your father’s light saber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster; an elegant weapon for a more civilized age. For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic. Before the dark times… before the Empire.

Obi-Wan: There was nothing you could have done, Luke, had you been there. You’d have been killed too, and the droids would now be in the hands of the Empire.

Luke: I want to come with you to Alderaan. There’s nothing for me here now. I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father.

Aunt Beru: Owen, he can’t stay here forever, most of his friends have gone. It means so much to him.
Uncle Owen: Well, I’ll make it up to him next year, I promise.
Aunt Beru: Luke’s just not a farmer, Owen. He has too much of his father in him.
Uncle Owen: That’s what I’m afraid of.

Officer Cass: Our scout ships have reached Dantooine. They found the remains of a Rebel base, but they estimate that it has been deserted for some time. They are now conducting an extensive search of the surrounding systems.

Governor Tarkin: [referring to Leia] She lied. She lied to us!
Darth Vader: I told you she would never consciously betray the Rebellion.
Governor Tarkin: Terminate her… immediately!

Obi-Wan: Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan… Now, that’s a name I’ve not heard in a long time. A long time.
Luke: I think my uncle knows him. He said he was dead.
Obi-Wan: Oh, he’s not dead… Not yet.
Luke: You know him?
Obi-Wan: But of course I know him. He’s me.
Obi-Wan: I haven’t gone by the name of Obi-Wan since… oh, before you were born.

Luke: Boy, it’s lucky you have these compartments.
Han Solo: I use them for smuggling. I never thought I’d be smuggling myself in them. This is ridiculous.

Luke: So. You got your reward and you’re just leaving, then?

Han Solo: Hey, Luke. May the Force be with you.

Darth Vader: I’ve been waiting for you, Obi-Wan. We meet again, at last. The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now *I* am the master.
Obi-Wan: Only a master of evil, Darth.

General Tagge: Until this battle station is fully operational, we are vulnerable. The Rebel Alliance is too well equipped, they’re more dangerous than you realize.
Admiral Motti: Dangerous to your starfleet, Commander; not to this battle station.

C-3PO: Now don’t you forget this! Why I should stick my neck out for you is far beyond my capacity!

Princess Leia: I don’t know who you are or where you came from, but from now on you’ll do as I tell you, okay?

Governor Tarkin: The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away forever.

Governor Tarkin: The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle station.

Luke: I’m Luke Skywalker. I’m here to rescue you.
Princess Leia: You’re who?

Obi-Wan: For over a thousand generations, the Jedi knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the old Republic… before the dark times… before the empire.

C-3PO: We’re doomed.

Luke: How did my father die?
Obi-Wan: A young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine until he turned to evil, helped the Empire hunt down and destroy the Jedi knights. He betrayed and murdered your father. Now the Jedi are all but extinct. Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force.

Luke: I don’t understand how we got by those troops. I thought we were dead.
Obi-Wan: The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

Luke: What a piece of junk!

Princess Leia: Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding Vader’s leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.
Governor Tarkin: Charming to the last. You don’t know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life.
Princess Leia: I’m surprised that you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself.
Governor Tarkin: Princess Leia, before your execution, I’d like you to join me for a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now.
Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.
Governor Tarkin: Not after we demonstrate the capabilities of this station.

Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him. Alone.

Darth Vader: I sense something; a presence I’ve not felt since…

Han Solo: Wonderful girl. Either I’m going to kill her or I’m beginning to like her.

Obi-Wan: Who’s the more foolish? The fool, or the fool who follows him?

Han Solo: Get in there, you big furry oaf! I don’t care what you smell!

Han Solo: Look, Your Worshipfulness, let’s get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.
Princess Leia: It’s a wonder you’re still alive.

Princess Leia: Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?
Han Solo: No reward is worth this.

Luke: Got ‘im! I got ‘im!
Han Solo: Great, kid. Don’t get cocky.

Darth Vader: Where are those transmissions you intercepted? WHAT have you DONE with those plans?
Captain Antilles: We intercepted no transmissions…
Captain Antilles: … This is a consular ship… We’re on a -
Captain Antilles: diplomatic mission…
Darth Vader: If this is a consular ship, WHERE is the ambassador?

Darth Vader: Commander, tear this ship apart until you find those plans! And bring me all passengers, I want them ALIVE!

Han Solo: Let him have it. It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.
C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.
Han Solo: That’s ’cause droids don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.
C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the Wookiee win.

Obi-Wan: You can’t win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

Obi-Wan: The Force will be with you, always.

Obi-Wan: In my experience, there’s no such thing as luck.

Han Solo: You’re all clear, kid, now let’s *blow* this thing and go home!

Darth Vader: This will be a day long remembered. It has seen the end of Kenobi, it will soon see the end of the Rebellion.

C-3PO: I’ve just about had enough of you. Go that way. You’ll be malfunctioning within a day, you near-sighted scrap pile. And don’t let me catch you following me begging for help because you won’t get it.

C-3PO: That malfunctioning little twirp, this is all his fault.

Governor Tarkin: Perhaps she would respond to an alternative form of persuasion.

Darth Vader: What do you mean?

Governor Tarkin: I think it is time we demonstrated the full power of this station. Set your course for Alderaan.

Darth Vader: And now, your highness, we will discuss the location of your hidden rebel base…

Princess Leia: Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold. The Imperial Senate will not sit still for this. When they hear you’ve attacked a diplomatic…
Darth Vader: Don’t act so surprised, Your Highness. You weren’t on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you.
Princess Leia: I don’t know what you’re talking about. I am a member of the Imperial Senate on a diplomatic mission to Alderaan…
Darth Vader: You are part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away!

Princess Leia: He certainly has courage…
Luke: Yeah, but what good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on!

C-3PO: Did you hear that? They shut down the main reactor. We’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.

Han Solo: Great shot, kid, that was one in a million!

Luke: You don’t believe in the Force, do you?

C-3PO: And I am C-3PO, human-cyborg relations. And this is my counterpart R2D2.

Obi-Wan: Yes. I was once a Jedi knight, the same as your father.
Luke: I wish I’d known him.
Obi-Wan: He was the best star pilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. I understand that you’ve become quite a good pilot yourself.
Obi-Wan: And he was a good friend.

Obi-Wan: Your eyes can deceive you; don’t trust them.

C-3PO: There’ll be no escape for the princess this time.

C-3PO: R2D2 where are you?
