C-3PO: Is there anything I can do?
Luke: Not unless you can alter time, speed up the harvest or teleport me off
[comm is blinking, Han hits the button]
Voice: What happened?
Han Solo: Uh, we had a slight weapons malfunction, but uh... everything's
perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are
Voice: We're sending a squad up.
Han Solo: Uh, uh, negative. We had a reactor leak here now. Give us a minute to
lock it down. Large leak, very dangerous.
Voice: Who is this? What's your operating number?
Han Solo: Uh...
[shoots comm, mutters]
Han Solo: boring conversation anyway.
Han Solo: Luke, we're gonna have company!
Princess Leia: Into the garbage chute, flyboy!
Luke: I'm not such a bad pilot myself.
Obi-Wan: In my experience, there's no such thing as luck.
Luke: Hey Biggs, I told you I'd make it.
Biggs: It'll be like old times, they'll never stop us.
[C-3PO is tangled up in wires after a run-in with tie fighters]
C-3PO: Help! I think I'm melting! This is all your fault!
C-3PO: Master Luke, sir. Pardon me for asking, but what should R2 and I do if
we're discovered here?
Han Solo: Lock the door, and hope they don't have blasters.
C-3PO: That isn't very reassuring.
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
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.
Stormtrooper: Let me see your identification.
Obi-Wan: You don't need to see his identification.
Stormtrooper: We don't need to see his identification.
Obi-Wan: These aren't the droids you're looking for.
Stormtrooper: These aren't the droids we're looking for.
Obi-Wan: He can go about his business.
Stormtrooper: You can go about your business.
Obi-Wan: Move along.
Stormtrooper: Move along, move along.
Han Solo: YAHOOOOO! You're all clear, kid. Now let's blow this thing and go
Princess Leia: They let us go. It was the only reason for the ease of our
Han Solo: Easy? You call that easy?
Princess Leia: They're tracking us.
Han Solo: Not this ship, Sister.
Princess Leia: Well, at least the information in Artoo is still intact.
Han Solo: What's so important? What's he carrying?
Princess Leia: The technical readouts of that battle station. I only hope that
when the data is analyzed, a weakness can be found.
Luke: Uncle Owen! This R2 unit has a bad motivator!
Darth Vader: Today will be a day long remembered. It has seen the death of
Kenobi and will soon see the end of the Rebellion.
Obi-Wan: I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices
suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
[A large-eyed creature gives Luke a rough shove.]
Human: He doesn't like you.
Luke: I'm sorry.
Human: I don't like you either. You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I
have the death sentence on twelve systems.
Luke: I'll be careful.
Human: You'll be dead!
Obi-Wan: That's no moon. It's a space station.
Luke: Listen, 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.
Obi-Wan: That's your uncle talking.
Obi-Wan: The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created
by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy
Han Solo: Well, you can forget your troubles with those Imperial slugs. I told
you I'd outrun 'em.
[Nobody is listening.]
Han Solo: Don't everyone thank me at once.
Han Solo: Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at
your side, kid.
Governor Tarkin: The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I
have just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently.
The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away.
Commander: But that's impossible. How will the Emperor maintain control without
Governor Tarkin: The regional governors now have direct control over their
territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line. Fear of this battle
Luke: I'm Luke Skywalker! I'm here to rescue you!
Princess Leia: You're who?
C-3PO: We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life.
Princess Leia: 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 Alderaan has failed. I've
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.
Obi-Wan: It's your father's lightsaber. This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not
as clumsy or as random as a blaster, but a more elegant weapon for a more
civilized age. For years, the Jedi were the guardians of peace and justice in
the galaxy. Before the dark times, before the Empire.
Luke: How did my father die?
Obi-Wan: 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.
Obi-Wan: Mos Eisley spaceport. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum
and villainy. We must be cautious.
Obi-Wan: The Force can have a strong influence on a weak mind.
Han Solo: Han Solo. I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me
you're lookin' for passage to the Alderaan system?
Obi-Wan: Yes indeed, if it's a fast ship.
Han Solo: Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?
Luke: 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
Han Solo: Watch your mouth, kid, or you're gonna find yourself floating home.
Darth Vader: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
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.
Princess Leia: Governor Tarkin, I should have expected to find you holding
Vader's leash. I recognized your foul stench when I was brought on board.
Governor Tarkin: Charming to the last. You don't know how hard I found it,
signing the order to terminate your life.
Princess Leia: I'm surprised that you had the courage to take the responsibility
Governor Tarkin: Princess Leia, before your execution, you will join me at a
ceremony that will make this battle station operational.
Princess Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems
will slip through your fingers.
C-3PO: Listen to them, they're dying, Artoo! Curse my metal body! I wasn't fast
enough! It's all my fault! My poor master!
[Referring to Ben Kenobi.]
Governor Tarkin: If you're right, he must not be allowed to escape.
Darth Vader: Escape is not his plan. I must face him. Alone.
[Two stormtroopers are posted near the tractor beam power terminal.]
Stormtrooper: Do you know what's going on?
Other stormtrooper: Maybe it's another drill.
Darth Vader: I sense something. A presence I've not felt since...
Obi-Wan: Luke, there was nothing you could have done, had you been there. You
would have been killed, too, and the droids would now be in the hands of the
Luke: I want to come with you to Alderaan. There is nothing here for me now. I
want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi like my father.
C-3PO: Don't call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease!
C-3PO: We're doomed!
Han Solo: Wonderful girl! Either I'm going to kill her or I'm beginning to like
Han Solo: Damn fool, I knew you were going to say that.
Obi-Wan: Who's the more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?
Han Solo: Traveling through hyperspace ain't like dusting crops, boy.
Princess Leia: Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
Han Solo: Get in there you big furry oaf! I don't care what you smell!
Han Solo: This is not going to work.
Luke: Why didn't you say so before?
Han Solo: I did say so before!
Han Solo: Look, Your Worshipfulness, let's get one thing straight. I take orders
from just one person: me!
Princess Leia: It's a wonder you're still alive.
[Pushing past Chewbacca.]
Princess Leia: Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?
Han Solo: No reward is worth this!
[Princess Leia gets her first look at the Millennium Falcon.]
Princess Leia: You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought!
[Luke blows up his first TIE fighter.]
Luke: Got 'im! I got 'im!
Han Solo: Great, kid! Don't get cocky!
Princess Leia: If money is all you love, then that's what you'll receive.
[After a successful rescue of Princess Leia.]
Luke: So, what do you think of her, Han?
Han Solo: I'm tryin' not to, kid.
Luke: [sotto voce] Good.
Han Solo: [baiting him] Still, she's gotta lot of spirit. I don't know, whaddya
think? You think a princess and a guy like me--
Luke: [quickly] No.
Luke: So... you got your reward and you're just leaving then?
Han Solo: That's right, yeah! I got some old debts I've got to 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: 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: 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'.
Darth Vader: The Force is strong with this one.
Darth Vader: Commander, tear this ship apart until you've found those plans. And
bring me the passengers, I want them alive!
Princess Leia: Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold.
[R2-D2 and Chewbacca are playing the holographic game aboard the Millennium
C-3PO: He made a fair move. Screaming about it can't help you.
Han Solo: Let him have it. It's not wise to upset a Wookiee.
C-3PO: But sir, nobody worries about upsetting a droid.
Han Solo: That's 'cause droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets
when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.
C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2: let the Wookiee win.
Darth Vader: When I left you, I was but the learner. Now I am the master.
Han Solo: Not a bad bit of rescuing, huh? You know, sometimes I amaze even
Princess Leia: That doesn't sound too hard.
Darth Vader: Your powers are weak, old man.
Obi-Wan: You can't win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more
powerful than you could possibly imagine.
Obi-Wan: The Force will be with you, always.
Luke: I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They're not much bigger
than two meters.
[X-wings are approaching Death Star.]
Wedge Antilles (Red 2): Look at the size of that thing.
Red Leader: Cut the chatter, Red 2.
Officer: We've analyzed their attack, sir, and there is a danger. Should I have
your ship standing by?
Governor Tarkin: Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate
Obi-Wan: Use the Force, Luke!
Aunt Beru: Where are you going?
Luke: Looks like I'm going nowhere! ...I have to go finish cleaning those 'droids.
Aunt Beru: 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.
Officer Cass: Our scout ships have reached Dantooine. They found the remains of
a Rebel base, but they estimate that it has been deserted for some time. They
are now conducting an extensive search of the surrounding systems.
Governor Tarkin: [refering to Leia] She lied! She lied to us!
Darth Vader: I told you she would never consciously betray the Rebellion.
Governor Tarkin: Terminate her! Immediately!
[approaching the Death Star]
Luke: I have a very bad feeling about this!
Princess Leia: You know, between his howling and you 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: Ben is a great man.
Han Solo: Yeah, great at getting us into trouble!
Princess Leia: Your friend is quite a mercenary. I wonder if he really cares
about anything... or anybody.
Luke: I care!
Luke: If there's a bright center to the universe, you're on the planet that it's
