Star Wars (1977)
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?
Uncle Owen: Uh-uh.
Luke: I wonder if he's related to Ben.
Uncle Owen: That wizard is just a crazy old man. Now, tomorrow I want you to take that R2 unit to Anchorhead and have its memory erased. That'll be the end of it. It belongs to us now.
Luke: But what if this Obi-Wan comes looking for him?
Uncle Owen: He won't. I don't think he exists anymore. He died about the same time as your father.
Luke: He knew my father?
Uncle Owen: I told you to forget it.

Aunt Beru: Where are you going?
Luke: Looks like I'm going nowhere... I'm gonna finish cleaning those 'droids.
Aunt Beru: [after Luke leaves] 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.

Luke: [the red R2 unit blows its top] Uncle Owen!
Uncle Owen: [looks up from paying the Jawa] Yeah?
Luke: This R2 unit has a bad motivator, look!
Uncle Owen: [to Jawa] Hey, what are you trying to push on us?

Uncle Owen: Have you seen Luke this morning?
Aunt Beru: He said that he had some things to do before he started, so he left early.
Uncle Owen: Did he take those two new droids with him?
Aunt Beru: I think so.
Uncle Owen: Well, he'd better have those units in the South Ridge repaired by midday, or there'll be hell to pay.

Uncle Owen: [about C-3PO and R5-D4] Luke! Take these two over to the garage will you, I want them cleaned up before dinner.
Luke: But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!
Uncle Owen: You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done.

Uncle Owen: Luke! Take these two over to the garage will ya? I want 'em cleaned up before dinner
Luke: But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!
Uncle Owen: You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done. Now, come on. Get to it.


Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)
C-3PO: Master Owen, may I present two most important visitors?
Anakin: I'm Anakin Skywalker.
Owen Lars: [intrigued, but wary, tone] Owen Lars. This is my girlfriend, Beru.
Beru: Hello.
Padme: I'm Padme.
Owen Lars: Well... I guess I'm your stepbrother. I had a feeling you might show up someday.
Anakin: Is my mother here?
[a one-legged Cliegg Lars appears]
Cliegg Lars: No, she's not. Cliegg Lars. Shmi is my wife. Come inside, we've got a lot to talk about.

[Cliegg Lars is telling Anakin about what happened to Shmi]
Cliegg Lars: It was just before dawn. They came out of nowhere. A hunting party of Tusken Raiders. Your mother had gone out early, like she always did, to pick mushrooms that grow on the vaporators. From the tracks, she was about halfway home when they took her. Those Tuskens walk like men, but they're vicious, mindless monsters. Thirty of us went out after her. Four of us came back. I'd be with them, only... after I lost my leg I just couldn't ride any more... until I heal. I don't want to give up on her, but she's been gone a month. There's little hope she's lasted this long.
[Anakin gets up from the table]
Owen Lars: Where are you going?
Anakin: To find my mother.
Cliegg Lars: Your mother's dead, son. Accept it.
