Quotes:
From Star Wars (1977)
Obi-Wan: [as Luke wakes up after being knocked out by Tuskan Raiders] Rest easy, son. You've had a busy day. You're fortunate to be all in one piece.
Luke: Ben? Ben Kenobi? Boy, am I glad to see you.
Obi-Wan: The Jundland Wastes are not to be traveled lightly. Tell me, young Luke, what brings you out this far?
Luke: [indicating R2-D2] This little droid. I think he's searching for his former master. I've never seen such devotion in a droid before. Ah, he claims to be the property of an Obi-Wan Kenobi. Is he a relative of yours? Do you know what he's talking about?
Obi-Wan: [thoughtfully] 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.
[R2 beeps in surprise]
