      Luke Skywalker:
      No, my father didn't fight in the Clone Wars. He was a navigator on a spice freighter.
      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?
      Obi-Wan Kenobi:
      Yes. I was once a Jedi Knight, the same as your father.
      Luke Skywalker:
      I wish I'd known him.
      Obi-Wan Kenobi:
      He was the best star pilot in the galaxy, and a cunning warrior. I understand you've become quite a good pilot yourself. And he was a good friend.

        Owen Lars:
        Luke! (referring to C-3PO and R5-D4) Take these two over to the garage, will you? I want them cleaned up before dinner.
        Luke Skywalker:
        But I was gonna go to Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!
        Owen Lars:
        You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done. Now, come on, get to it.

          Admiral Motti: "Don't try to frighten us with your sorcerous ways, Lord Vader. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you conjure up the stolen data tapes, or given you clairvoyance enough to find the rebels' hidden fortress..."
          (Vader makes a choking motion with his hand)
          Darth Vader: "I find your lack of faith disturbing."

          1198
            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."
            1197
              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."
              1196
                Darth Vader:
                Obi-Wan is here. The Force is with him.
                Wilhuff Tarkin:
                If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape!
                Darth Vader:
                Escape is not his plan. I must face him alone.
                1195
                  Darth Vader:
                  He is here.
                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                  Obi-Wan Kenobi? What makes you think so?
                  Darth Vader:
                  A tremor in the Force. The last time I felt it was in the presence of my old master.
                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                  Surely he must be dead by now.
                  Darth Vader:
                  Don't underestimate the Force.
                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                  The Jedi are extinct. Their fire has gone out of the universe. You, my friend, are all that's left of their religion.
                  1194
                    Owen Lars:
                    (referring to Obi-Wan Kenobi) That wizard's just a crazy old man. You stay away from him, you hear me? He's dangerous. 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 here looking for him?
                    Owen Lars:
                    He won't. I don't think he exists anymore. He died about the same time as your father.
                    1193
                      Han Solo:
                      (after sliding down the garbage chute) That garbage chute was a really wonderful idea! What an incredible smell you've discovered!
                      1192
                        Leia: "Into the garbage shoot fly-boy!"
                        1191
                          Luke: "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."
                          1190
                            Obi-Wan Kenobi:
                            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.
                            Obi-Wan Kenobi:
                            Oh, he's not dead. Or...not yet.
                            Luke Skywalker:
                            Then you know him.
                            Obi-Wan Kenobi:
                            Well, of course I know him! He's me. I haven't gone by the name of Obi-Wan since...oh, before you were born.
                            1189
                              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."
                              1188
                                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."

                                1187
                                  Leia Organa:
                                  Governor Tarkin. I should have expected to find you holding Vader's leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.
                                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                                  Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it, signing the order to terminate your life.
                                  Leia Organa:
                                  (sarcastically) I'm surprised you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself.
                                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                                  Princess Leia, before your execution, I would like you to be my guest at a ceremony that will make this battle station operational. No star system will dare oppose the Emperor now.
                                  Leia Organa:
                                  The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.
                                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                                  Not after we demonstrate the power of this station. In a way, you have determined the choice of the planet that will be destroyed first. Since you are reluctant to provide us with the location of the Rebel base, I have chosen to test this station's destructive power on your home planet of Alderaan.
                                  Leia Organa:
                                  (shocked) No! Alderaan is peaceful. We have no weapons. You can't possibly...!
                                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                                  You would prefer another target? A military target? Then name the system! (stepping closer to Leia and pinning her against Darth Vader) I grow tired of asking this, so it will be the last time. Where is the Rebel base?
                                  Leia Organa:
                                  (looks at Alderaan for a moment, then, resigned) Dantooine. They're on Dantooine.
                                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                                  There. You see, Lord Vader? She can be reasonable. (to assistant) Continue with the operation. You may fire when ready.
                                  Leia Organa:
                                  (panicked) What?!
                                  Wilhuff Tarkin:
                                  You are 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.

                                    Luke: "I'm Luke Skywalker. I'm here to rescue you!"

                                      Han Solo:
                                      Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
                                      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. 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. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

                                        Wedge Antilles: "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."

                                          Gold Five: "Stay on target!"

                                            "Mos Eisley Spaceport, You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy; We must be cautious."
