[Luke returns to Yoda's hut on Degoba.]
Master Yoda: That face you make. Look I so old to young eyes?
Luke Skywalker: No. Of course not.
Master 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? [laughs, then starts coughing] Soon will I rest. Yes, forever sleep. Earned it, I have.
Luke Skywalker: Master Yoda, you can't die.
Master Yoda: Strong am I in 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. [climbs into bed and pulls the covers over himself]
Luke Skywalker: But I need your help. I've come back to complete the training.
Master Yoda: [sighs] No more training do you require. Already know you that which you need.
Luke Skywalker: Then I am a Jedi.
Master Yoda: Ohhh! [turns back toward Luke and laughs, before coughing again] Not yet. One thing remains: Vader. You must confront Vader! Then, only then, a Jedi will you be. And confront him you will.
Luke Skywalker: Master Yoda, is Darth Vader my father?
Master Yoda: [pauses, turns back over away from Luke] Rest, I need. Yes... rest.
Luke Skywalker: Yoda, I must know.
Master Yoda: [pauses again] Your father he is. Told you, did he?
Luke Skywalker: Yes.
Master Yoda: Unexpected this is, and unfortunate.
Luke Skywalker: Unfortunate that I know the truth?
Master Yoda: [turns back to Luke again] No! Unfortunate, that you rushed to face him! That, incomplete was your training! That, not ready for the burden were you.
Luke Skywalker: I'm sorry.
Master Yoda: Remember, a Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware: Anger, fear, aggression. The Dark Side are they. Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. [growing weak] Luke... Luke... Do not... Do not underestimate the powers of the Emperor, or suffer your father's fate, you will. Luke, when gone am I, the last of the Jedi will you be. Luke, the Force runs strong in your family. Pass on what you have learned. [very weakly] Luke... there is... another... Sk-Sky...walk...er... [lies still, fading into nothing a moment later]
