Luke Skywalker : Look, I'm sure it's delicious. I just don't understand why we can't see Yoda now! Yoda : [cheerfully] Patience! For the Jedi it is time to eat as well. Eat. [ Laughs ] eat. Hot. Good food, hmm? Good, hmm? Luke Skywalker : 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. Root leaf, I cook. Why wish you become Jedi? Luke Skywalker : Well, mostly because of my father, I guess. Yoda : Oh, father! Powerful Jedi was he. Powerful Jedi. Luke Skywalker : Oh, come on! How could 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 : [sighs, looks upward] I cannot teach him. The boy has no patience. Obi-Wan Kenobi : [voice emanates from nowhere] He will learn patience. Yoda : Much anger in him, like his father. Obi-Wan Kenobi : Was I any different when you taught me? Yoda : He is not ready! Luke Skywalker : Yoda? I am ready! I— Ben, I can be a Jedi! Ben tell him I'm rea— [ bangs his head on the low ceiling ] Ow! Yoda : [to Luke] Ready are you? What know you of ready? For 800 years have I trained Jedi. My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained! A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one, a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away to the future, the horizon. Never his mind on where he was [pokes Luke] . Hmm? What he was doing . [paces around] Adventure. Heh! Excitement. A Jedi craves not these things. [turns to Luke and points with his walking stick] You are reckless! Obi-Wan Kenobi : So was I, if you remember. Yoda : [still looking at Luke] He is too old. Yes. Too old to begin the training. Luke Skywalker : But I've learned so much. Yoda : [looking toward the sky] Will he finish what he begins? Luke Skywalker : I won't fail you! I'm not afraid. Yoda : [grimly] Oh! You will be. You will be.
