But with the blast shield down, I can’t even see! How am I supposed to fight? What!? Red Five standing by. Dantooine. They’re on Dantooine. I have traced the Rebel spies to her. Now she is my only link to finding their secret base.

I suggest you try it again, Luke. This time, let go your conscious self and act on instinct. She must have hidden the plans in the escape pod. Send a detachment down to retrieve them, and see to it personally, Commander. There’ll be no one to stop us this time!

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 be a Jedi, like my father before me.

Oh God, my uncle. How am I ever gonna explain this? You mean it controls your actions? Obi-Wan is here. The Force is with him. 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 there’s one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There’s no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

  1. Don’t act so surprised, Your Highness. You weren’t on any mercy mission this time. Several transmissions were beamed to this ship by Rebel spies. I want to know what happened to the plans they sent you.
  2. I call it luck.
  3. Don’t underestimate the Force.

Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone.

She must have hidden the plans in the escape pod. Send a detachment down to retrieve them, and see to it personally, Commander. There’ll be no one to stop us this time! Alderaan? I’m not going to Alderaan. I’ve got to go home. It’s late, I’m in for it as it is.

  • What good is 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.
  • I care. So, what do you think of her, Han?
  • Partially, but it also obeys your commands.

Red Five standing by. I’m trying not to, kid. 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 be a Jedi, like my father before me. What!?

I find your lack of faith disturbing. Alderaan? I’m not going to Alderaan. I’ve got to go home. It’s late, I’m in for it as it is. He is here. Partially, but it also obeys your commands. What!?

Oh God, my uncle. How am I ever gonna explain this? The Force is strong with this one. I have you now. As you wish. You’re all clear, kid. Let’s blow this thing and go home! Dantooine. They’re on Dantooine.

The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers. In my experience, there is no such thing as luck. 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.

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. I find your lack of faith disturbing. Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

You’re all clear, kid. Let’s blow this thing and go home! Obi-Wan is here. The Force is with him. 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 there’s one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There’s no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. It’s all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

I’m surprised you had the courage to take the responsibility yourself. The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. I suggest you try it again, Luke. This time, let go your conscious self and act on instinct.

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 such a long way from here. Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him.

You’re all clear, kid. Let’s blow this thing and go home! Red Five standing by. I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I’m getting too old for this sort of thing. Remember, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through him.

What good is 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. You don’t believe in the Force, do you? I care. So, what do you think of her, Han?

As you wish. You are a part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor! Take her away! Escape is not his plan. I must face him, alone. I find your lack of faith disturbing. Oh God, my uncle. How am I ever gonna explain this?
