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?
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.
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!
