* BeAShameIfSomethingHappened: When Lando angrily complains that Vader is altering the terms of their arrangement, Vader retorts with the implication the Empire will occupy Bespin if Lando doesn't back down.
-->'''Lando''': That was never a condition of our agreement, nor was giving Han to this bounty hunter!
-->'''Vader''': Perhaps you think you're being treated unfairly?
-->'''Lando''': [[OhCrap No]].
-->'''Vader''': Good. It would be unfortunate if I had to leave a garrison here.



** It's possible that the Force lead him to that exact spot, though this is not mentioned in the film. In Creator/TimothyZahn's ''[[Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy Heir to the Empire]]'', Luke himself ponders this possibility.

** Most notable changes include replacing the original Emperor with Ian [=McDiarmid=] with new lines, and altering Vader's line "Bring my shuttle" to "Alert my Star Destroyer to prepare for my arrival" and intercutting the ''Falcon''[='=]s escape with digital effects of a Lambda-class shuttle approaching the ''Executor'' and footage culled from ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' to show the hangar landing. The latter is especially strange and serves no apparent purpose beyond extending the run time[[note]]The scene was apparently inserted because the "Bring my shuttle" line wasn't enough for some viewers to explain how Vader got up to the ''Executor'' in time to watch the ''Falcon'' escape.[[/note]]
