Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)
[Ponda Baba gives Luke a rough shove and starts yelling at Luke in an alien language which Luke doesn't understand]
Dr. Evazan: [explaining] He doesn't like you.
Luke Skywalker: Sorry.
Dr. Evazan: [grabbing Luke] *I* don't like you either. You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on twelve systems.
Luke Skywalker: I'll be careful.
Dr. Evazan: You'll be dead!
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: [intervening] This little one's not worth the effort. Come, let me get you something.
[Dr. Evazan shoves Luke across the room and pulls out a blaster]
Bartender: No blasters! No blasters!
[Obi-Wan ignites his lightsaber, killing Dr. Evazan and severing Ponda Baba's arm]

Luke Skywalker: You know, I think that R2 unit we bought may have been stolen.
Uncle Owen: What makes you think that?
Luke Skywalker: 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 Skywalker: 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 Skywalker: 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 Skywalker: He knew my father?
Uncle Owen: I told you to forget it.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: 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 Skywalker: What is it?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: 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.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: 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 Skywalker: 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: 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.

Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: [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 Skywalker: Ben? Ben Kenobi? Boy, am I glad to see you.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Jundland Wastes are not to be traveled lightly. Tell me, young Luke, what brings you out this far?
Luke Skywalker: [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?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: [thoughtfully] Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan... Now, that's a name I've not heard in a long time. A long time.
Luke Skywalker: I think my uncle knows him. He said he was dead.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, he's not dead. Not yet.
Luke Skywalker: You know him?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: But of course I know him. He's me.
[R2 beeps in surprise]
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: I haven't gone by the name of Obi-Wan since... oh, before you were born.

Luke Skywalker: 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 Skywalker: [about Princess Leia] They're gonna execute her! Look, a few minutes ago you said you didn't want to just wait here to be captured. Now all you want to do is stay?
Han Solo: Marching into a detention area is not what I had in mind.
Luke Skywalker: But they're gonna kill her!
Han Solo: Better her than me!

Imperial Officer: [seeing Luke and Han disguised as Stormtroopers taking Chewbacca to the prison level] Where are you taking this... thing?
Luke Skywalker: Prisoner transfer. Cell block 1138?
Imperial Officer: I wasn't notified. I'll have to clear it.
[signals another imperial officer to check Chewbacca; Chewbacca breaks out of his binders]
Han Solo: Look out he's loose!
Luke Skywalker: He'll tear us all apart!
Han Solo: I'll get him!
[they shoot out the security cameras and kill the officers]

Luke Skywalker: So. You got your reward and you're just leaving, then?
Han Solo: That's right, yeah. Got some old debts I gotta pay off with this stuff. Even if I didn't, you don't think I'd be fool enough to stick around here, do you? Why don't you come with us? You're pretty good in a fight. We could use you.
Luke Skywalker: Come on. Why don't you take a look around. You know what's about to happen, what they're up against. They could use a good pilot like you, you're turning your back on them.
Han Solo: What good is a reward if you ain't around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station is not my idea of courage. It's more like, suicide.
Luke Skywalker: [angry] Okay. Take care of yourself Han. I guess that's what you're best at isn't it?
Han Solo: [as Luke walks away] Hey, Luke. May the Force be with you.
[to Chewbacca]
Han Solo: What're you looking at? I know what I'm doing.

General Dodonna: The battle station is heavily shielded and carries a firepower greater than half the star fleet. Its defenses are designed around a direct, large-scale assault. A small one-man fighter should be able to penetrate the outer defense.
Gold Leader: Pardon me for asking, sir, but what good are snub fighters going to be against that?
General Dodonna: Well, the Empire doesn't consider a small one-man fighter to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by Princess Leia has demonstrated a weakness in the battle station. But the approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight down this trench and skim the surface to this point. The target area is only two meters wide. It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy the station. Only a precise hit will set off a chain reaction. The shaft is ray-shielded, so you'll have to use proton torpedoes.
Wedge Antilles (Red 2): That's impossible! Even for a computer.
Luke: It's not impossible. I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home, they're not much bigger than two meters.
General Dodonna: Then man your ships. And may the Force be with you.

Princess Leia Organa: General Kenobi. Years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars. Now he begs you to help him in his struggle against the Empire. I regret that I am unable to present my father's request to you in person, but my ship has fallen under attack, and I'm afraid my mission to bring you to Alderaan has failed. I have placed information vital to the survival of the Rebellion into the memory systems of this R2 unit. My father will know how to retrieve it. You must see this droid safely delivered to him on Alderaan. This is our most desperate hour. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope.
[pause]
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: [to Luke] You must learn the ways of the Force, if you're to come with me to Alderaan.
Luke Skywalker: Alderaan? I'm not going to Alderaan, I've gotta get *home*, it's late, I'm in for it as it is!
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I'm getting too old for this sort of thing.
Luke Skywalker: Look, I can't get involved. I've got work to do. It's not that I like the Empire; I hate it, but there's nothing I can do about it right now... It's all such a long way from here.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: That's your uncle talking.

Luke Skywalker: I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you.
Princess Leia Organa: You're who?
Luke Skywalker: I'm here to rescue you. I've got your R2 unit. I'm here with Ben Kenobi.
Princess Leia Organa: Ben Kenobi? Where is he?
Luke Skywalker: Come on!

Luke Skywalker: [to C3PO] All right, come on. And the red one. Come on. Well, come on Red, let's go.

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

Luke Skywalker: How did my father die?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: 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 Skywalker: I don't understand how we got by those troops. I thought we were dead.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

Luke Skywalker: [on first seeing the Millenium Falcon] What a piece of junk!
Han Solo: She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

C-3PO: Where could they be?
[R2 beeps at him]
C-3PO: Use the comlink? Oh my! I forgot, I turned it off.
[over the comlink]
C-3PO: Are you there sir?
Luke Skywalker: 3PO?
C-3PO: We've had some problems...
Luke Skywalker: [interrupting] Will you shut up and listen to me! Shut down all the garbage smashers on the detention level, will ya? Do you copy? Shut down all the garbage smashers on the detention level! Shut down all the garbage mashers on the detention level!
C-3PO: [to R2-D2] No! Shut them *all* down, hurry!
[R2 shuts down the compactors]
Luke Skywalker: What? HAHA! Hey, you did it 3PO!
[Luke, Leia and Han start laughing hysterically; it sounds like screaming]
C-3PO: Listen to them, they're dying R2! Curse my metal body, I wasn't fast enough, it's all my fault! My poor Master.
Luke Skywalker: 3PO, we're all right! We're all right! Ha ha! Hey, open the pressure maintenance hatch on unit number... where are we? 3263827!

Princess Leia Organa: Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
Luke Skywalker: Huh? Oh, the uniform.
[Luke takes off Stormtrooper mask]

Han Solo: This is *not* gonna work.
Luke Skywalker: Why didn't you say so before?
Han Solo: I *did* say so before.

[Luke blows up his first TIE fighter]
Luke Skywalker: Got him! I got him!
Han Solo: Great, kid! Don't get cocky.

Princess Leia Organa: It's not over yet.
Han Solo: It is for me, sister. Look, I ain't in this for your revolution, and I'm not in it for you, Princess. I expect to be well paid. I'm in it for the money.
Princess Leia Organa: You needn't worry about your reward. If money is all that you love, then that's what you'll receive.
[to Luke]
Princess Leia Organa: Your friend is quite the mercenary. I wonder if he really cares about anything. Or anybody.
[she stalks out]
Luke Skywalker: [calling after her] I care.
[to Han]
Luke Skywalker: So, what do you think of her, Han?
Han Solo: I'm tryin' not to, kid.
Luke Skywalker: Good.
Han Solo: [baiting him] Still, she's got a lot of spirit. I don't know, whaddya think? You think a princess and a guy like me...
Luke Skywalker: [quickly] No.

Luke Skywalker: Come on. Why don't you take a look around? You know what's about to happen, what they're up against. They could use a good pilot like you. You're turning your back on them.
Han Solo: What good's a reward if you ain't around to use it? Besides, attacking that battle station ain't my idea of courage. It's more like... suicide.
Luke Skywalker: All right. Well, take care of yourself, Han. I guess that's what you're best at, isn't it?
[starts to storm off]
Han Solo: Hey, Luke... may the Force be with you.
[Luke exits. Chewie growls]
Han Solo: What're you lookin' at? I know what I'm doin'.

[approaching the Death Star]
Luke Skywalker: I have a very bad feeling about this.

Luke Skywalker: You know, between his howling and your blasting everything in sight, it's a wonder the whole station doesn't know we're here.
Han Solo: Bring 'em on, I'd prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around.

Han Solo: Where did you dig up that old fossil?
Luke Skywalker: Ben is a great man.
Han Solo: Yeah, great at getting us into trouble.

Princess Leia Organa: Your friend is quite a mercenary. I wonder if he really cares about anything... or anybody.
Luke Skywalker: I care.

Luke Skywalker: [griping about Tatooine] If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's farthest from.

C-3PO: Is there anything I can do?
Luke Skywalker: Not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or teleport me off this rock.

Luke Skywalker: I'm not such a bad pilot myself.

Luke Skywalker: Hey Biggs, I told you I'd make it someday.
Biggs: It'll be like old times, Luke. They'll never stop us.

C-3PO: Master Luke, sir. Pardon me for asking, but what should R2 and I do if we're discovered here?
Luke Skywalker: Lock the door.
Han Solo: And hope they don't have blasters.
C-3PO: That isn't very reassuring.

Luke Skywalker: What are you doing hiding back there?
C-3PO: It wasn't my fault, sir, please don't deactivate me. I told him not to go, but he's faulty, malfunctioning. Kept babbling on about his mission.

[Han, Luke, Leia and Chewie land in the trash compactor]
Han Solo: Garbage chute. Really wonderful idea. What an incredible smell you've discovered! Let's get out of here! Get away from there...
Luke Skywalker: No, wait...!
[Han draws his laser pistol and fires at the hatch. The laser bolt ricochets wildly around the small room. Everyone dives for cover in the garbage as the bolt finally explodes]
Luke Skywalker: Will you forget it? I already tried it. It's magnetically sealed!
Princess Leia Organa: Put that thing away, you're gonna get us all killed!
Han Solo: Absolutely, Your Worship. Look, I had everything under control until you led us down here! Now it's not going to take them long to figure out what happened to us.
Princess Leia Organa: It could be worse.
[Garbage creature growls]
Han Solo: It's worse.

[Han is chasing some Stormtroopers]
Princess Leia Organa: He certainly has courage.
Luke Skywalker: What good will it do us if he gets himself killed? Come on.
[Luke and Leia run off in the opposite direction]

[last lines]
C-3PO: You must repair him! Sir, if any of my circuits or gears will help, I'll gladly donate them.
Luke Skywalker: He'll be all right.

Luke Skywalker: You don't believe in the Force, do you?
Han Solo: Kid, I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other, and I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen *anything* to make me believe that there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. 'Cause no mystical energy field controls *my* destiny. It's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Luke Skywalker: She's rich.
Han Solo: [interested] Rich?
Luke Skywalker: Rich, powerful. Listen, if you were to rescue her, the reward would be...
Han Solo: What?
Luke Skywalker: Well, more wealth than you can imagine!
Han Solo: I don't know, I can imagine quite a bit.

Princess Leia Organa: [as the ships approach] Here they come.
Luke Skywalker: They're coming in too fast!

Luke Skywalker: No, my father didn't fight in the Clone Wars. He was a navigator on a spice freighter.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: That's what your uncle told you. He didn't hold with your father's ideals; he felt he should've stayed here and not gotten involved.
Luke Skywalker: You fought in the Clone Wars?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Yes. I was once a Jedi knight, the same as your father.
Luke Skywalker: I wish I'd known him.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: He was the best star pilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. I understand that you've become quite a good pilot yourself.
[sorrowfully]
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: And he was a good friend.

Han Solo: Stay sharp. There's two more coming in. They're gonna try and cut us off.
Luke: Why don't you outrun them? I thought you said this thing was fast!
Han Solo: Watch your mouth, kid, or you're gonna find yourself floating home! We'll be safe enough once we make the jump to hyperspace. Besides, I know a few maneuvers. We'll lose 'em.
[the ship shudders as an explosion flashes outside the window]
Han Solo: Here's where the fun begins.
Obi-Wan: How long before you can make the jump to light speed?
Han Solo: It'll take a few moments to get the coordinates from the navi-computer.
[the ship begins to rock violently as lasers hit it]
Luke: Are you kidding? At the rate they're gaining...?
Han Solo: Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy! Without precise calculations we could fly right through a star, or bounce too close to a supernova and that'd end your trip real quick, wouldn't it.
Luke: [notices a flashing light] ... What's that flashing?
Han Solo: [slaps Luke's hand away] We're losing a deflector shield. Go strap yourselves in. I'm going to make the jump to light speed.
[And so they do]

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 Skywalker: 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.

Wuher: Hey! We don't serve their kind here.
Luke Skywalker: What?
Wuher: Your droids. They'll have to wait outside. We don't want them here.

Luke Skywalker: There's something alive in here.
Han Solo: That's your imagination.
Luke Skywalker: Something just moved passed my leg.
[sees a tentacle in the water]
Luke Skywalker: Look! Did you see that?
Han Solo: What?
[the tentacle grabs Luke and drags him into the water]

Luke Skywalker: You know, I did feel something. I could almost see the remote.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: That's good. You have taken your first step into a larger world.

[Luke, Obi-Wan, and the droids find the Sandcrawler that the droids were sold from trashed and a majority of the Jawas dead]
Luke Skywalker: It *looks* like the Sandpeople did this, alright. Look, there's gaffi sticks, Bantha tracks. It's just, I never heard of them hit anything this big before.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: They didn't, but we are meant to think they did. These tracks are side-by-side. Sandpeople always ride single file to hide their numbers.
Luke Skywalker: These are the same Jawas that sold us R2 and 3PO.
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: And these blast points, too accurate for Sandpeople. Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise.
Luke Skywalker: But why would Imperial troops want to slaughter Jawas? If they traced the robots here, they may have learned who they sold them to and that would lead them back...
[runs towards his Landspeeder]
Luke Skywalker: ... Home!
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi: Wait, Luke! It's too dangerous!
[Luke boards his Landspeeder and takes off towards his homestead]

Luke Skywalker: [to Leia] Carrie!


Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Luke: [approaching R2-D2] I can't do it, R2. I can't go on alone.
Obi-Wan: [from out of sight] Yoda and I will always be with you.
Luke: Obi-Wan.
[Obi-Wan's spirit approaches Luke]
Luke: Ben! Why didn't you tell me? You told me that Darth Vader betrayed and murdered my father.
Obi-Wan: Your father... was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. He ceased to be the Jedi Anakin Skywalker and "became" Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So, what I told you was true... from a certain point of view.
Luke: A certain point of view?
Obi-Wan: Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. Anakin was a good friend. When I first met him, your father was already a great pilot. But I was amazed how strongly the Force was with him. I took it upon myself to train him as a Jedi. I thought that I could instruct him just as well as Yoda. I was wrong.
Luke: There is still good in him.
Obi-Wan: He's more machine now than man. Twisted and evil.
Luke: I can't do it, Ben.
Obi-Wan: You cannot escape your destiny. You must face Darth Vader again.
Luke: I can't kill my own father.
Obi-Wan: Then the Emperor has already won. You were our only hope.
Luke: Yoda spoke of another.
Obi-Wan: The other he spoke of is your twin sister.
Luke: But I have no sister.
Obi-Wan: Hmm. To protect you both from the Emperor, you were hidden from your father when you were born. The Emperor knew, as I did, if Anakin were to have any offspring, they would be a threat to him. That is the reason why your sister remains safely anonymous.
Luke: Leia! Leia is my sister.
Obi-Wan: Your insight serves you well. Bury your feelings deep down, Luke. They do you credit, but they could be made to serve the Emperor.

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

Darth Vader: You cannot hide forever, Luke.
Luke: I will not fight you.
Darth Vader: Give yourself to the Dark Side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for... sister. So, you have a twin sister. Your feelings have now betrayed her, too. Obi-Wan was wise to hide her from me. Now his failure is complete. If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps she will...
Luke: [igniting light saber, screams] NEVER!

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.
[Luke takes off Darth Vader's mask one piece at a time. Underneath, Luke sees the face of a pale, scarred, bald-headed, old man - his father, Anakin. Anakin sadly looks at Luke but then gives a tired smile]
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.
[Anakin smiles and his eyes begin to droop slumps down in death while giving one last dying breath]
Luke: Father... I won't leave 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.

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. But he can also feel mine. He's come for me. He can feel it 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.
[pause]
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.

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.

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.

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.

[Referring to Vader]
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!

Luke: I'm endangering the mission. I shouldn't have come.
Han Solo: It's your imagination, kid. Come on. Let's keep a little optimism here.

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

Han Solo: Chewie and I'll take care of this, you stay here.
Luke: *Quietly*. There may be more of them out there.
Han Solo: Hey, it's me.

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.

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: [angry] So be it... Jedi!

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 a Jedi named Anakin Skywalker, my father.
Darth Vader: [angrily] That name no longer has any meaning for me!

Luke: You will take me to Jabba now.
Bib Fortuna: I take you to Jabba now.
Luke: You serve your master well. And you will be rewarded.

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.
[Luke's eyes go to his lightsabre]
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*.

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

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.

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.

C-3PO: At last, Master Luke's come to rescue me!
Bib Fortuna: Master.
[Jabba wakes up with a start]
Bib Fortuna: May I present Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight?
Jabba the Hutt: I told you not to admit him!
Luke: I must be allowed to speak.
Bib Fortuna: He must be allowed to speak.
Jabba the Hutt: You weak minded fool! He's using an old Jedi mind trick.
[Jabba shoves Bib Fortuna aside]
Luke: You will bring Captain Solo and the Wookiee to me.
[Jabba laughs]
Jabba the Hutt: Your mind powers will not work on me boy.
Luke: Nevertheless, I'm taking Captain Solo and his friends. You can either profit by this or be destroyed. It's your choice, but I warn you not to underestimate my power.

Luke: Soon I'll be dead, and you with me.
The Emperor: [laughing] 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!

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.


Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Yoda: Stopped they must be; on this all depends. Only a fully trained Jedi Knight, with the Force as his ally, will conquer Vader and his Emperor. If you end your training now - if you choose the quick and easy path as Vader did - you will become an agent of evil.
Obi-Wan: Patience.
Luke: And sacrifice Han and Leia?
Yoda: If you honor what they fight for? Yes.
Obi-Wan: If you choose to face Vader, you will do it alone. I cannot interfere.
Luke: I understand. R2? Fire up the converters.
Obi-Wan: Luke! Don't give in to hate. That leads to the Dark Side.
Yoda: Strong is Vader. Mind what you have learned. Save you it can.
Luke: I will. And I'll return, I promise.

[Luke has seen a vision of Han, Leia and Chewie being tortured in Cloud City]
Luke: I saw - I saw a city in the clouds.
Yoda: [nods] Friends you have there.
Luke: They were in pain...
Yoda: It is the future you see.
Luke: The future?
[pause]
Luke: Will they die?
Yoda: [closes his eyes for a moment] Difficult to see. Always in motion is the future.
Luke: I've got to go to them.
Yoda: Decide you must, how to serve them best. If you leave now, help them you could; but you would destroy all for which they have fought, and suffered.

Luke: I want my lamp back. I'm gonna need it to get out of this slimy mudhole.
Yoda: Mudhole? Slimy? My home this is!

[Luke can't levitate his X-Wing out of the bog]
Luke: I can't. It's too big.
Yoda: Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

Yoda: I am wondering, why are you here?
Luke: I'm looking for someone.
Yoda: Looking? Found someone, you have, I would say, hmmm?
Luke: Right...
Yoda: Help you I can. Yes, mmmm.
Luke: I don't think so. I'm looking for a great warrior.
Yoda: Ohhh. Great warrior.
[laughs and shakes his head]
Yoda: Wars not make one great.

Luke: All right, I'll give it a try.
Yoda: No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

[Using the Force, Yoda effortlessly frees the X-Wing from the bog]
Luke: I don't, I don't believe it.
Yoda: That is why you fail.

Darth Vader: There is no escape. Don't make me destroy you.
[pauses]
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: [anguished] No! No!

[Yoda tries to convince Luke not to leave]
Yoda: You must not go!
Luke: But Han and Leia will die if I don't.
[Obi-Wan's Force-spirit suddenly appears]
Obi-Wan: You don't know that. Even Yoda cannot see their fate.
Luke: But I can help them! I feel the Force!
Obi-Wan: But you cannot control it. This is a dangerous time for you, when you will be tempted by the Dark Side of the Force.

Luke: I don't know. I feel like...
Yoda: Feel like what?
[Luke whips around and pulls out his blaster in defense]
Luke: Like we're being watched.
Yoda: Away put your weapon. I mean you no harm.

Yoda: Why wish you become Jedi?
Luke: Well, mostly because of my father, I guess.
Yoda: Ahh... father. Powerful Jedi was he. Powerful Jedi.
Luke: [suspcious] Oh, come on! How can you know my father? You don't even know who I am. Oh, I don't even know what I'm doing here! We're wasting our time!
Yoda: [Looking away from Luke] I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience.
Obi-Wan: [voice-over] He will learn patience.
Yoda: Much anger in him... like his father.
Obi-Wan: [voice] Was I any different when you taught me?

Darth Vader: Your destiny lies with me Skywalker. Obi-Wan knew this to be true.
Luke: No...

Yoda: Yes, run! Yes, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan's apprentice.
Luke: Vader... Is the dark side stronger?
Yoda: No, no, no. Quicker, easier, more seductive.
Luke: But how am I to know the good side from the bad?
Yoda: You will know... when you are calm, at peace, passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, NEVER for attack.
Luke: But tell my why I can't...
Yoda: No, no! There is no "why".

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

Luke: How far away is Yoda? Will it take us long to get there?
Yoda: Not far. Yoda not far. Patience. Soon you will be with him.

[repeated line]
Luke: Ben... Ben. Why didn't you tell me?

Han Solo: How ya feeling kid? You don't look so bad to me. You look strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark.
Luke: Thanks to you.
Han Solo: That's two you owe me junior.

[after R2D2 is spit out by a swamp creature on Dagobah - the line is changed in the Special Edition]
Luke: You were lucky to get out of there.

Luke: [clinging to an antennae below Cloud City] Leia... Hear me, Leia...
Princess Leia: [in the Falcon] Luke... We've got to go back.
Lando: What?
Princess Leia: I know where Luke is!

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

Luke: There's something not right here... I feel cold. Death.
Yoda: [points to a cave opening beneath a large tree] That place... is strong with the dark side of the Force. A domain of evil it is. In you must go.
Luke: What's in there?
Yoda: Only what you take with you.

[Luke's ship sinks into the mud]
Luke: We'll never get it out now!
Yoda: So certain are you. Always with you what cannot be done. Hear you nothing that I say?

[first lines]
Luke: Echo Three to Echo Seven. Han, old buddy, do you read me?
Han Solo: Loud and clear, kid. What's up?
Luke: Well, I finished my circle. I don't pick up any life readings.
Han Solo: There isn't enough life on this ice cube to fill a space cruiser. Sensors are placed. I'm going back.
Luke: Right. I'll see you shortly. There's a meteorite that hit the ground near here. I want to check it out. It won't take long.

[last lines]
Lando: Princess, we'll find Han. I promise.
Luke: Chewie, I'll be waiting for your signal. Take care, you two. May the force be with you.

Luke: Watch that cross fire boys.

Luke: [in 1997 Special Edition only] This is it.


The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) (TV)
Luke Skywalker: Come on Mala, let's see a little smile. Come on...
Malla: Waagork!
Luke Skywalker: There, that's better. Try to enjoy your Life Day.

Boba Fett: Follow me, friend.
C-3PO: Don't you think it might be imprudent to trust him so quickly, sir?
Luke Skywalker: He's our only chance... and besides, he seems like a friend.

Luke Skywalker: You saved my life. Thank you.
Boba Fett: You are alone?
Luke Skywalker: I have two droids. We come in search of a ship that crashed near here.
Boba Fett: Maybe I can help you. I am Boba Fett.

Luke Skywalker: Hang on, R2.
C-3PO: What about me? I'm going to shake apart.

Luke Skywalker: R2, stand by to fire the ejection pod.
C-3PO: And hurry, R2, or we'll be desert soon.

Boba Fett: I take it you have no love for the Empire.
Luke Skywalker: I don't.
Boba Fett: Well, neither do I.

Han Solo: He says our friend Boba found serum for the talisman virus.
Luke Skywalker: Boba, you're a hero and a faithful friend. You must come with us.
[R2 bleeps]
Luke Skywalker: What's the matter with R2?
C-3PO: I'm afraid, sir, it's because you said Boba's a friend and faithful ally. That does not feed properly into R2's information bank.
Luke Skywalker: What are you talking about?
C-3PO: We've intercepted a message between Boba and Darth Vader, sir. Boba Fett is Darth Vader's right-hand man. I'm afraid this whole adventure has been an Imperial plot.
Boba Fett: We'll meet again, friends.
[Boba Fett escapes by flying through the Falcon's top hatch]

Han Solo: Well, trust a droid to get to the bottom of things.
Luke Skywalker: Boba sure fooled the rest of us.
C-3PO: I beg your pardon, sir. Chewbacca suspected all along there was something bad about Boba.
Luke Skywalker: How did you know, Chewie?
[Chewbacca murmurs]
C-3PO: May I quote directly, sir? "He just didn't smell right."

Loke Groundrunner: Oobedoob Scooby-Dooby Benubi?
Oobedoob Benubi: One and the same. And you must be
[crosses eyes]
Oobedoob Benubi: the CRY BABY!

Oobedoob Benubi: Come now, touch your tongue to mine.
Loke Groundrunner: What?
Oobedoob Benubi: Your tongue - touch it to mine.
Loke Groundrunner: Why?
Oobedoob Benubi: To make it official!
Loke Groundrunner: To make what official?
Oobedoob Benubi: You know, ALL OF IT!

Oobedoob Benubi: Oh, big sacrifice; everyone you knew is dead! Glad you could tear yourself away!

Loke Groundrunner: I've got three FIST fighters coming from my left!
Annoying Pilot: Copy, Stray Dog!
Loke Groundrunner: I, I don't think I'm Stray Dog.
Annoying Pilot: Copy that, Red Rooster!
Loke Groundrunner: I, I don't think I'm Red Rooster either.
Annoying Pilot: No problem, Nasty Butler!
Loke Groundrunner: I'm ending this transmission.

Aunt Gonna Biteit: I must say, you're becoming a fine specimen of a man, Loke Groundrunner.
Loke Groundrunner: Well alot of good that does me here. I wanna join the Thumbellion Resistance. I wanna make something of myself, be of use to someone.
Uncle Soon Dead: Well you're plenty useful here, Loke. The harvest is soon and... and you'll be getting help. I bought some new droids from the freaky little hooded creatures. The tall one is effeminate and annoying. And I think the little one has an amputee inside!
Loke Groundrunner: [whiny voice] Harvest, harvest, harvest! That's all you ever care about! You don't care about me. I wanna see the universe!
[squealing]
Loke Groundrunner: YOU DON'T KNOW WHO I AM INSIDE! YOU NEVER HAVE! I'M GONNA RUN AWAY AND NEVER COME BACK EVER!
[storms out crying]
Uncle Soon Dead: Whoo! What a whiner that kid is.
