Now witness the power of this fully armed and operational battle station. Fire at will, commander.

[En route to the Pit of Carkoon]
Han Solo: I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big light blur.
Luke Skywalker: There's nothing to see. I used to live here, you know.
Han Solo: You're gonna die here, you know. Convenient.
Luke Skywalker: Just stick close to Chewie and Lando. I'm taking care of everything.
Han Solo: Oh, great.

It's a trap!

[Luke refuses to give in to the Emperor's demands and disarms himself.]
Emperor Palpatine: [raising his hands toward Luke] If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed!
[Lightning shoots out of the Emperor's fingers and strikes Luke, causing him to fall to the floor in agony. Darth Vader gets up and stands next to the Emperor, watching.]
Emperor Palpatine: Young fool. Only now, at the end, do you understand. [shoots another round of lightning into Luke] Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the Dark Side. You have paid the price for your lack of vision! [continues shooting lightning at Luke]
Luke Skywalker: [writhing in agony] Father, please!
[Darth Vader continues to watch the scene, looking back and forth between Luke and the Emperor.]
Emperor Palpatine: Now, young Skywalker... you will die.
[The Emperor grins for a moment before his expression turns angry once more. He fires more lightning in a continuous stream into Luke, who is in even more pain than before. Darth Vader looks between the two once more, then suddenly lunges forward and picks up the Emperor, directing the lightning into the Emperor and himself. Vader throws the Emperor bodily into the nearby shaft, and the Emperor is destroyed in a spectacular burst of energy. Vader is critically injured in the process.]

Han Solo: Together again.
Luke Skywalker: Wouldn't miss it.
Han Solo: How are we doing?
Luke Skywalker: The same as always.
Han Solo: That bad, huh?

Good! Your hate has made you powerful. Now, fulfill your destiny and take your father's place at my side!

This bounty hunter is my kind of scum! Fearless and inventive!

If you will not be turned, you will be destroyed! Young fool. Only now, at the end, do you understand. Your feeble skills are no match for the power of the dark side! You have paid the price for your lack of vision!

Send the fleet to the far side of Endor... there it will stay until called for.

[Luke is attempting to drag Vader to a nearby shuttle on the Death Star.]
Darth Vader: Luke, help me take this mask off.
Luke Skywalker: But you'll die!
Darth Vader: Nothing can stop that now. Just for once, let me look on you with my own eyes.
[Luke carefully removes Vader's mask to reveal Anakin's disfigured face underneath.]
Anakin Skywalker: [weakly] Now, go my son. Leave me.
Luke Skywalker: No, you're coming with me. I won't leave you here. I've got to save you!
Anakin Skywalker: [smiles] You already have, Luke. You were right. You were right about me... Tell your sister... you were right... [falls silent as he dies]
Luke Skywalker: Father. I won't leave you.

[The Mon Calamari cruiser Liberty is destroyed by the Death Star]
Lando Calrissian: That blast came from the Death Star. That thing's operational! [to Admiral Ackbar] Home One, this is Gold Leader.
Admiral Ackbar: We saw it. All craft, prepare to retreat!
Lando Calrissian: We won't get another chance at this, Admiral.
Admiral Ackbar: We have no choice, General Calrissian! Our cruisers can't repel firepower of that magnitude!
Lando Calrissian: Han'll have that shield down. We've got to give him more time!

Oh no, young Jedi. You will find that it is you who are mistaken - about a great many things.

[choked voice]: Many Bothans died to bring us this information. (The Bothans are assumed to be spies, who had infiltrated the Imperial High Command.)

Soon the rebellion will be crushed and young Skywalker will be one of us.

You can see here, the Death Star, orbiting the forest moon of Endor. Although the weapon systems on this Death Star are not yet operational, the Death Star does have a strong defence mechanism. It is protected by an energy shield which is generated on the nearby forest moon of Endor. The shield must be deactivated if any attack is to be attempted.
