View Quote [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... [lies still, fading into nothing a moment later]
View Quote [Luke surrenders himself to Darth Vader.]
Darth Vader: The Emperor has been expecting you.
Luke Skywalker: I know, father.
Darth Vader: So, you have accepted the truth?
Luke Skywalker: I've accepted the truth that you were once Anakin Skywalker, my father.
Darth Vader: [firmly] That name no longer has any meaning for me!
Luke Skywalker: It is the name of your true self. You've only forgotten. I know there is good in you. The Emperor hasn't driven it from you fully. [steps off to the side of the passageway, away from Vader] That was why you couldn't destroy me. That's why you won't bring me to your Emperor now.
[Vader turns on Luke's lightsaber and holds it up]
Darth Vader: I see you have constructed a new lightsaber. Your skills are complete. Indeed you are powerful, as the Emperor has foreseen. [turns off the lightsaber again]
Luke Skywalker: Come with me!
Darth Vader: Obi-Wan once thought as you do. You don't know the power of the Dark Side! I must obey my master.
Luke Skywalker: I will not turn. And you'll be forced to kill me.
Darth Vader: If that is your destiny.
Luke Skywalker: Search your feelings, father. You can't do this. I feel the conflict within you!
Darth Vader: There is no conflict.
Luke Skywalker: Let go of your hate!
Darth Vader: It is... too late for me, son. The Emperor will show you the true nature of the Force. He is your master now.
Luke Skywalker: [resigned] Then my father is truly dead.
View Quote [The Emperor has summoned Darth Vader to his chamber.]
Darth Vader: What is thy bidding, my master?
Emperor Palpatine: Send the fleet to the far side of Endor. There it will stay until called for.
Darth Vader: What of the reports of the rebel fleet massing near Sullust?
Emperor Palpatine: It is of no concern. Soon the rebellion will be crushed and young Skywalker will be one of us. Your work here is finished, my friend. Go to the command ship and await my orders.
Darth Vader: Yes, my master.
View Quote [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!
View Quote (last words as a redeemed Anakin Skywalker) Tell your sister... you were right.
View Quote (mocking Luke about his sister, Leia) If you will not turn to the Dark Side... then perhaps she will.
View Quote (when Luke says he will save him) You already have.
View Quote [choked voice]: Many Bothans died to bring us this information. (The Bothans are assumed to be spies, who had infiltrated the Imperial High Command.)
View Quote [Fighters coming in!] Accelerate to attack speed, try and draw their fire away from the cruisers.
View Quote [to Jabba] Nevertheless, I am taking Captain Solo, and his friends. You can either profit from this, or be destroyed. It's your choice, but I warn you not to underestimate my powers.
View Quote All craft, prepare to jump into hyperspace on my mark!
View Quote Because he's holding a thermal detonator!
View Quote Boba Fett?! Where?!
View Quote Come on, Han, old buddy, don't let me down.
View Quote Don't worry, my friends are down there. They'll have that shield down on time... (to himself) or this'll be the shortest offensive of all time.
